I have admitted on these boards before that I have never used pot. I don't think it made anyone think any less of me.
In college, when I could've smoked weed if I'd wanted to, I was not interested in smoking or drinking alcohol. I was there to get my degree and that's what I did. Not to say that I didn't have any fun at all, but my father is an alcoholic, and for a long time I was afraid that any alcohol use would make ME an alcoholic, too, and I really wanted that college education. I have since grown a little and I understand that, while alcoholism is hereditary, it doesn't quite work the way I thought it did.
In Tennessee, I was not interested in smoking weed. Mostly because the only person that I really knew who could get it for us was a pot head dealer living in a trailer park, and he took all manner of pills in addition to smoking copious amounts of weed. I didn't want anything to do with him, and I was afraid to get anything from him, since I would have no idea if he'd laced it with anything or not. He was always trying to get my husband to smoke out with him.
Now that I'm away from that, I'm actually interested in trying it once, just to see what it's like. I don't like the idea of smoking anything, but I'd be interested in trying one of the edibles or whatever you crazy kids call it these days.
As for our ballot questions:
1. An amendment to the HI constitution to assist dam and reservoir owners. The purpose of this Act is to authorize the State to issue special purpose revenue bonds and use the proceeds from the bonds to assist dam and reservoir owners.
2. An amendment to the HI constitution authorizing the chief justice of the state supreme court to appoint retired judges to serve as emeritus judges.
Changes to the HI County charter:
Proposal No. 1: Records and Meetings Open to the Public
Proposal No. 2: Public Access, Open Space, and Natural Resources Preservation Fund
Proposal No. 3: Public Access, Open Space, and Natural Resources Preservation Maintenance Fund
Proposal No. 4: Establishing Special Funds
Proposal No. 5: Eligibility for Redistricting Commissioners to be Candidates for County Council
Proposal No. 6: Establishing a Game Management Advisory Commission
Pretty boring sh*t.
