I'm more curious if Stylinred has had a sip of alcohol in the past 4 years?

I don't partake, nor do I think it should be outlawed with mandatory minimum sentences like in the US.

It should be legal, look how much tax revenue Colorado is getting. And it should also be heavily regulated for quality. Not like alcohol where Labatt and Molson control the retail alcohol market in Canada and churn out crap beers.

There should also be research on how THC impairs your driving; we know the threshhold for impared driving is 0.05 (bylaw) or 0.08 (Criminal Code of Canada) percent concentration of alcohol in your blood by volume, but we don't know the equivalent for THC because cannabis is a schedule I drug in the US (which means is deemed to have no medical or research uses ever). Also, unlike alcohol, THC stays in your system for up to 10 days but its psychoactive effects generally last about 6-8 hours, so if you do a drug test you may not be impaired but still test positive for THC. I know drug tests aren't as common in Canada for employment unless it's a high risk job, but they're common in the US, and even welfare recipients take drug tests in some states.

Also I don't think that teenagers should smoke cannabis too much. Their brains are still developing and there have been very consistent, impartial studies showing that long-term cannabis use by teenagers can lead to neurological and cognitive issues later in life. If they're going to experiment, they should limit their use to a few times a month maximum, and vape instead of smoke the product. And vaping is far better for the lungs than smoking, no matter if you're a teenager or an adult.

After I quit, the first 2 weeks I was coughing up huge chunks of tar. Now I don't cough at all anymore. Only been about a month now.

That's how it always is it seems, I've taken 2/3/4 week breaks in the past and each time after about two you hack up a bunch of shit. Somewhat encouraging health wise lol

I'm so happy now that I've quit weed. Life feels like it has purpose and meaning again. The fog of weed feels so amazing and you can just live however you want and constantly say "fuck it" while enjoying the liberty that marijuana gives you to think the most bizarre and creative thoughts. It is a blanket of peace and tranquility until you realize it merely blunts things that adults would otherwise want to stand up and challenge.


After quitting weed, I was like, fuck it, I can't stand living around crackheads, vomit, feces, needles, litter and the constant barrage of insanity of the DTES. I'm moving to Marpole and I rented a house near 60th and Oak.


Marijuana is like the frog in the water for your brain. At first, it turns up the heat a little and you don't notice it. After years you might finally notice the boiling going on around you but the weed still feels so relaxing and good. It really is an odd fog, a blunting of your true emotions that allows the petty and trivial to take over your thoughts. On marijuana, who gives a shit about major issues because there's some new video game to play, or other distraction, or food, or whatever, to keep your mind entertained on a low level of thinking. Yes, of course there is a creative aspect to it, but few people are truly successful when they have a marijuana addiction because nearly everything in life is half-assed. I admit, I totally half-assed, or no-assed my book's marketing. I had the creative edge, but did not even understand WHY it was so important to me to get this message out there. Marijuana is a medication, I firmly believe it, but it can blunt, or soften life, too much.


Marijuana is not physically addictive, but mentally it is a sanctuary for your angst. If you quit weed, you begin noticing things about the world around you that you really might not like. You'll begin to notice people around you littering, for example. Fuck that is such a pet peeve of mine. While walking to the gym, I noticed some fucking fat poncho-wearing bitch just scarfing down a cheeseburger outside of Tinseltown this afternoon and then tossing the wrapper to the ground. Shit like that I would have never noticed while high because I'd be lost in my own entertaining thoughts.

Legal, taxed, and regulated.

The current state of decriminalization and "look the other way" leaves consumers with no legal recourse should they be wronged.

people will abuse this drug and it makes them into losers or wannabe rappers like these people here


so no I do NOT want marijuana to be legalized. It should be actively boycotted. which nobody seems to have the guts to stand up because this city has turned into pot city

Legalize and regulate, more education. Less crime, more revenue.

The smell are disgusting, should be common sense/ etiquette to not smoke it at public events/ public places. If it is legalized, there should be designated place people go to get high and not affect everyone else.

A lot of marijuana smokers have a severe sense of entitlement to "freedom"


When I ride the seawall, at least a few times I will smell people smoking weed. Super annoying.
