This thread is all about pot use now, huh?
A high school friend of mine became a huge pothead while studying abroad in Europe during college. After graduating he went home and lived with his parents for about three years, keeping small part-time jobs and spending a good deal of his money on pot (according to him, overpriced, underpowered... but any port in a storm, right?).
Last year he moved to Colorado, which regulates pot heavily but allows it to be legally sold
. He got a job as a medical marijuana dispensary and now says "the only reason I don't smoke more than I do is because I already spend all my money on it." He has an addictive personality anyway, but it's pretty sad. People who say "You can't get addicted to pot!" are either lying, or misrepresenting by not mentioning "... but you can get addicted to feeling high."
I've done it from time to time; my main issues are:
1. Don't care for the smell. I used to HATE it, but now it's not too bad.
2. My friends don't smoke, so I don't feel the urge to
3. I have no idea where to buy it from, how to check for quality, etc etc.
4. If you're hunting for a job, you need to stop weeks in advance so it won't show on drug tests.
All that said, my experiences with it have gone from "OH MU GOD I'M HAVING A HEART ATTACK, I"M GOING TO DIE" (first time, when I ate WAY too many brownies), to "Eh, this just makes it hard to function and I cough a lot" (when I would smoke with my friends from high school and college), to "Hey, this isn't half bad" (present feeling as I use a vaporizer which eliminates the coughing and smell, and especially after I discovered how it can positively affect sex).
