But I agree with you on the keeping it hush aspect.My take is this. If you're going to smoke pot, (legally or illegally), I sure as hell wouldn't go around bragging about it. And I sure as hell would not want my name and address on ANY type of "Medical Marijuana" card. This type of crap can catch up with you both professionally, as well as legally. We live in the information age. Employers check peoples Facebook and Twitter accounts before hiring. I'm retired, but I still have never posted on ANY social media sites, and I never will. I don't see any upside to it. But it sure can cause trouble.
....if you wanna equate getting high with robbing a bank, I can only assume you don't have any experience to make an informed opinion from.I guess if there is a law against smoking pot, and they do it, they are not "otherwise good people". It's against the law to rob a bank, but if I do it, am I still "otherwise good"?? Where do you draw the line between bad and otherwise good??
Buck3200...I am not equating getting high with robbing a bank in the literal sense. I am equating it with breaking the law. Which laws are we allowed to pick and choose from? How much is the DUI rate, with the corresponding accident rate, going to go up because a lot more people will be driving while high? And if by questioning my "experience", by which I assume you mean smoking pot, no I don't, and I don't plan to just so I can come up with a more informed opinion.....if you wanna equate getting high with robbing a bank, I can only assume you don't have any experience to make an informed opinion from.
Actually, I was referring to knowing people who do. But since as is stated here and on the other thread on the subject, many people won't freely admit to smoking pot, many have friends, family, and co-workers that do and never know it. The Emperors Clothes comes to mind....And if by questioning my "experience", by which I assume you mean smoking pot, no I don't, and I don't plan to just so I can come up with a more informed opinion.
