    Lol all of the people I know who smoke it regularly (more than me, say once every 2 nights or something) dont fit into any of those generalisations.

    ............................but i didn't know you smoked pot!!! :p

    but my knowledge of what you get up to other than posting on this forum is about zero so i can't make a very informative character assessment of you! anyhoo!

    yes, so subtle in fact that i specifically and purposefully didn't say it..... or even imply it..... anywhere! i did so not least because i don't even think it's true!

    i'm glad you think that pot dealers are such wonderful people who make such valuable contributions to society, without mention of the fact that the money which comes from the sale of drugs on the street is the primary source of funding for organised crime. that the money paid to these drug dealers goes to rich rich drug barons who pay no tax to support our hospitals, ammenities and police services, and who use much of the money to buy guns to be put in the hands of criminals who walk our streets maintaining by threat and force their illegal businesses.

    i agree. this in fact was more my point.

    well that sort of depends on what things you look for in a persons life to call the, successful and motivated. furthermore i don't think that successful, motivated people are always good people! you can get successful, motivated paedophiles....

    you're older than most of the people you know?..........

    my generalisations are not narrow. like i say, they are based on extensive life experience and of the many many associations i have with many many old and new friends, and old and young friends. few of them are particularly productive people. for those of you with limited logical reasoning skills or 'broader views' if you will, that does not mean that none of them are. it does not mean that i believe that pot smoker=loser.

    but i guess i will develop your breadth and wisdom in time. maybe i just need to smoke a lot more pot. i'm sure that will make everything so much clearer..... maybe i'll grow older than everyone too!

    What's so odd about that? Youngin alerrrrrt! ((alarms start wailing)) :p JK.
    Will you think less of him now? Please say no.
    Probably! :lol: JK. So, you do smoke? You said "A lot more pot." But really, no need to be defensive. The thing that could be clearer is your point. Give me your bottom line. From what I've read, you tend to think a smoker is a loser... but then you don't think that. Maybe your opinion on pot is on a thin line between love and hate.

    Getting different perspectives on this topic is always fascinating. My father, for instance is convinced that marijuana is almost as detrimental as heroin. This is a dude who grew up in the 70's for God's sake. I told him that I smoked it because I knew that it would piss him off. :p

    mmmhmmmmmmmm ....ok!

    i'm 23 and until i'm in my 50s or something i wont be older than most of the people i know!!!

    well i think that people who devote too much of their time and resource to pot smoking are behaving in a pretty selfish way. i think that over-emphasis on self-indulgence of a non-creative kind in itself is a bad thing. this is because i think constructive human behaviour is not manifested in this way. it's a focus on the self, and not in a useful 'self-improvement' type of way. pot smoking doesn't have any benefits to the world whatsoever other than the 'i feel good for the time being' factor, which is not one that should occupy our ambitions and our behaviours.

    i might 'think less' of Satori or anyone else if i were to understand that they focussed 'too much' of their time and resource on pot smoking, but i don't really know how much of a part it plays in his life so there you go!

    my position on regular pot use is that by the nature of the thing it very often becomes the focus of a person's activities, of their resource and subsequently of their life. the more regular the use, the more of a problem this becomes. this is overwhelmingly my experience of drug use and drug users. as the focus of their lives turns towards self-indulgence and pot smoking on the whole, then it turns away from social and moral responsibility, from constructive social interaction and from productivity.

    that is my position if you want it clearly.

    huh? who's being defensive?? :p

    yes i smoke pot, very occasionally and only when i get drunk and aren't thinking entirely straight. there's a lot of things i do when i'm taking it easy and taking a break that i don't think are particularly 'good things to do', but i do them because i am human. i have a concern about these things becoming the focal point of people's lives, including my own.

    see above
