Do you get mad when people brag about drugs?

I totally agree with you although I don't do drugs often and when I do It's just to relive some stress. But I don't brag about it or care when other people do they sound like idiots though.

I think people tend to go to extremes in these forums. Either over the top for or against something.

I'll admit - I smoke marijuana. No bragging, I just do. I'm sick and a little marijuana is cheaper than the only nausea medicine that works for me. It helps me stop puking. It helps me eat. Sometimes, when I don't have it, my disease gets worse, I don't eat, and in the past I've lost 40lbs unintentionally. Marijuana is something I am not ashamed of. I'm not high all of the time, in fact, I'm rarely ever high. I don't smoke and drive.

I don't think people should be so judgmental. I have tried many drugs, and I don't do them anymore. Still, I'm not judgmental towards those who do drugs in moderation and it does not affect their work, school, relationships, emotional wellbeing, or social life.

Thread went from people who hate bragging about drugs to people who hate people that hate people for doing drugs. O__o

It's not fair to bring an entire sub culture down just because of a segment of the sub culture. People that brag about drugs are young and stupid, you find as you grow up that less people brag. Plenty of people smoke weed every day and live perfectly normal lives, In fact they probably aren't as irritated from day to day and live less stressful lives, the only drawback is sometimes a bit more mucus than normal. Otherwise, as far as heath effects, they've done studies in at least 3 countries (not the US of course :P) and found that smoking weed can actually cause cancer to go into remission, or even some of the chemicals eat cancer cells entirely. Of course you don't hear about that stuff.

SO, honestly you should probably do your research because you're wanting to put down a large group of people, because honestly, you don't know, you have no idea.

Now hard drugs on the other hand, here I'll give you guys a good resource

Shows you what happens when different drugs enter a body, it's a flash movie created by the university of Utah.

Also posting this on such a forum is kind of biased, "MOST" of the demographic for Crunchy Roll is like 12-20 year old shut ins. Of course you've never done drugs, you never had good friends.

Nope. I just pity them.

My bestfriend's dating a guy who smokes weed (same class). My bestie was whipped over him for about two years now, and they've only started dating recently. He says that the weed itself is not addicting, it's the feeling of being high. He smokes it almost everyday, and he comes to school late often for the same reason.

We had a lesson on drugs the other day, and I saw him flinch as our teacher talked about marijuana. If I remember correctly, weed has 400 chemicals/substances in it. They can all cause cancer, if I'm correct.

Anyways, back to the question. Yes, I do get annoyed. Although, lately, it hasn't been getting on my nerves as much. Idk, maybe I'm used to it, or I just don't care at all. Either way, they should stop being so proud of what they're doing.

Some people have their reasons. They use it to get away from their lives/problems, for medical purposes, or like mentioned before, it is used to relax.

Alright, I just lost my point .. got it. I GUESS it's okay if they use it for medical reasons. There are HEALTHIER alternatives to weed if you want to chill, or just get away. Go for a drive, read a book, take a nap. There's tons. You just have to reconsider your choice of even starting smoking.

See, again here's a problem of misinformation. You're simply using unfair stereotypes. Smoking Weed does not make you late. I'm a chronic smoker and I'm never late for anything, in fact I'm usually always at least 10 minutes early for work or school.

Marijuana contains hundreds of chemicals yes you're correct, but the problem is that most of them have yet to be identified, and there's no reasonable testing that has been done that shows any of the chemicals cause cancer, you just made that up, or your teacher doesn't know what their talking about, either way it's not true factual information. Now, as far as real testing, they've isolated a chemical from Marijuana and actually using it to block, treat and even cause Alzheimer to go into recession (this is in Britain or England I believe), there's recorded cases of people smoking copious amounts of weed when they have cancer, and then magically going into remission. Go ahead and look it up.

Now, I'm not saying that Marijuana is completely venerated, it has it's drawbacks, but it's the choice of the smoker. Also, things change a lot from the time of when you're 16, and when you're an adult. When I was 16 I swore I'd never do a drug, things change, minds change, but also, here's the most important part, you become educated on things you have no knowledge of.

So, simply making up facts don't really help things IMO. =(

Sure. I express it by joining the conversation, "'Ey, yo yo! Where'd you get that crack?" and then, "NEWS FLASH: Drug dealer is found dead in home." ;D

Depends. I don't care much for people who're in your face about anything.

So I don't care if it's like
"So what you get up to last night?"
"Ah not much, just stayed in and had a smokey smokey."

But if it's like
"GUESS WHAT GUISE I SMOKED A JOINT LOLOL. SHIT I'M SO COOL."
Well that's just damn annoying.

That and you can't lump all illegal drugs into the one category. Mary-jane is pretty similar to tobacco. Studies have proven it to actually be less addictive. Long term use can cause paranoia but you have to be a real pothead for that.

Though, other things can ruin your life far more easily. The "class A" drugs are so for a reason. You can get life in jail for dealing them, whereas maryjane, a class C, I've seen and heard of people just having it confiscated by the police, no charges filed.

I don't get mad rather I just feel sorry. Like what did you lack in your life that drugs became the only joy for you. I mean I love my videos games and anime. I expect to be tearing up with a shooter when I'm an old fart in a retirement home or something but they're not the only source of joy. They don't keep me warm on cold winter night.

I don't care if they smoke it or not, but I find it irritating, or more like a pet peeves, when people brag about their drug experiences. As long as they keep it to themselves, and the drugs are nothing more than weed than I'm cool with it. Weeds will kill your brain cells, but it highly won't kill you. Then again, I think even weeds are better than tobacco and alcohol.
