    Did you post this in the wrong thread? I'm not sure how it fits into the conversation. Reading back, I'm not even sure who you're responding to. I'm not seeing anything with a political bent. Unless you're assuming "conservatives" are anti-marijuana, and "liberal's" are pro. Which would be decidedly wrong, obvious even within the context of just this thread. Of course, we both know that real conservatives wouldn't even think of supporting the colossal waste of tax dollars known as the "war on weed".

    This is purely a political issue, one centered around personal freedoms and the role of government in our daily lives. Flyborg, you've hit on the real issue, which is hypocrisy - there are those who lament the spending of tax money for the "war" on anything; be it drugs, terrorism, obesity, hatchery fish, beads (sorry, I digress). It is purely politics. There are those who want to tell me how to live my life, how you should live yours, all the while decrying the size of government. That being said, no-one has the right to endanger another person's well-being or health. I try my best to avoid fast food, but I'm not to tell you that you can't eat it - yet the government will on your behalf. How's that for freedom - paying someone to tell you what to do and how to live. No thanks.

    If you don't like my smoke, then don't come around, cause I am going to burn one down. This applies to more than a J, it applies to tyranny and the loss of personal freedoms at the hand of a religious and politically bent group of your fellow citizens.

    This recent election cycle has me very concerned about the future of the country. More than ever before, morality issues are becoming more and more center stage, and from the party that supposed to be the champions of personal liberty. The thing that concerns me is the number of supporters these types of things have. You'd think that anyone making issues about what people put in their bodies, do in their bedrooms, or teach to their children would be laughed off the stage... Instead, they're being paraded around and celebrated.

    Some great one-liners from this thread!
    • And naturally you say the same to every flask toting fisherman you encounter.-nick clayton
    • The only way I have managed to find steelhead fishing enjoyable is by huffing gold metallic spray paint. (thanks to whoever is kindly picking up all the cans)- JesseCFowl
    • buying weed supports dangerous and violent criminals who abuse our national forests [by illegally growing in them].-RobAllen
    • Don't be surprised if half the guys on this forum had a toke before Easter Dinner today/tonight.-dryflylarry
    • credit to Snoop Dog for his perhaps unintentional role in lowering crime...-wadin’ boot
    • What if he is on the river with his kid and doesn't want him seeing that stuff? I dont care if you smoke nicotine, weed, or cock, just do it at home where I dont have to see it.- Kcahill
    • I do have a concern that large numbers of pot smokers are driving intoxicated to and from their fishing areas.-ribka
    • So has anyone written their article for the mag [Blood Knot] yet?-lylelovett666
    We are interested in all of the unique perspectives shared throughout this thread! Not all "hot button" issues affect fly fishing, but smoking marijuana does, and seems to have both positive and negative impacts on the sport. This has been a great thread and we're hopeful all of you will take the time to submit your opinion pieces! Please direct any specific questions about those submissions to Contribute@bloodknot.net, and please submit submissions to the same address.And thank you all again for contributing to this thread!

    I most dangerous side effect of weed that I ever observed was when the mini mart nearly ran out of Doritos. Can't say that about alcohol or tobacco.

    Funny, without him you all may not know what you are fishing for....what they eat...habitat...geography...and besides, my post is the truth MOST CANNOT HANDLE. Change....it is the only survival mode we HAVE to adapt to. All falls under this. Even Government. If any of you want to discuss this...this is one argument i will never have. Change is everything and happens daily. Just like the currents we fish...constantly changing.... "People should not be afraid of their governments, their governments should be afraid of its' people" -V

    I didn't hook shit yesterday, but I didn't care cause the monkey pipe transitioned me from "work time" to "outdoor time".

    Yeah, the "Party of No" can't CHANGE. In fact, they want to go backward 50 years. Losers. Just a bunch of losers. Don't buy in to it. This is what I think of them:

    Whoops. I apologize to all for the last post. This is what happens when you get almost old... (Actually, some idiot on here called me a communist/socialist and, what have you, a couple month ago in a PM. I just never got over it!) Sorry to my conservative friends on here. :)

    I have no argument with anyone who feels that smoking weed enhances their fishing experience. I have witnessed circumstantial evidence that it can put one in the "zone!" I always used to crack up when the fishing was slow and a friend of mine would fire up a bowl and then get a strike while he was engaged in toking up. "Never fails!" he'd exclaim.
