Myself, I would use such an opportunity to teach my son the difference between legality and morality. I believe in being a good, law abiding citizen for the most part, however I do NOT want my son to spend his life blindly following rules for no reason. I want my son to be able to make his own informed decisions. I do not need Uncle Sam to make decisions in my life, nor dictate how I raise my son. When I'm running late to drop my boy off at school, and I run through the stop sign near my house that is completely pointless, my son thoroughly understands that while stopping at the stop sign is technically "the law", running through it in a hurry doesn't make me a criminal either. Neither does going 6 miles over the speed limit, or crossing a street without a cross walk. This is EXACTLY where I place the smoking pot issue. Laws be damned, I want my son to think for himself.

It's a good thing that others throughout our history had the courage to stand up against what was currently illegal.


So you are asking someone to ignore something illegal that goes on in public? 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.

I could care less what people do in their lives. I do have a concern that large numbers of pot smokers are driving intoxicated to and from their fishing areas.

There are even threads on fly sites recommending the best weed to smoke for long road trips. amazing


I sure am lucky that I have so many people willing to tell me how to live my life. Saves me the hassle of all those pesky decisions.

Christ, ill never understand why people feel the need to cram their beliefs down someone else's throat. Stay out of my life and ill stay out of yours. You don't like what's going on in my boat? Simple, don't get in.

I no longer partake but I'll support legalization and it's taxation if they use some of the money to get rid of the discover pass.
Good luck collecting a tax on a cash product. Who will collect this tax? The state of Washington who is laying off employees?

Will private grows be outlawed then? There are currently 1000's of med marijuana grows now in Washington. How much tax has the state collected this far?

Govt produced weed will be quite a bit more expensive than private grown weed.

If the G puts a tax on it and sell from Govt run stores and you will create a a huge black market and crime will increase.

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)

If being out amongst the forest,the river and the complete absorption of the fishing game doesn't do it for you unless loaded you are probably wasting your time.Besides standing in the river with a joint or a can Busch light seems like white trash gear head style. if you must get high take a tip from Jesse and class it up a bit with huffing.

If people enjoy having a safety meeting or blowing the fish whistle while out enjoying their fishing, I could care less.
I'm far more concerned with meth tweakers trying to break into my rig while I'm out in the field then someone having a few tokes while fishing. Being attacked by wolves is my second greatest concern......

Boy, I'm glad I have all you guys to tell me what's right and wrong and where I should do it.

The guy was asking for submissions to a magazine, not a morality lesson.

I'm waiting to see the sensitive request for gay fly anglers and how many get to bend their buddy over the fence rail. Geez... illegal is illegal.
There happen to be gay members of this board, believe it or not (not myself, but I happen to be friends with some who are). And I'm not entirely sure what point you're trying to make here. Being gay isn't illegal last I checked.

My value system says that the individual is supreme in making decisions about their own body (personal freedom and responsibility) and that governments role is to guarantee weights, measures and purity of products, and enforce contracts. It is not to determine what is or is not suitable for me and it is not to employ it's powers of prohibition to protect me from me. It should protect you from me but NEVER me from me.

I find firearms to be quite useless in such situations. Throwing fun sized bags of Doritos and Ding Dongs and then running in the opposite direction is a much better method of escaping such dangers.
Yeah or maybe some Patchouli Oil

We could also compress some clean soapy smelling water and put in a can, it would be like bear spray for hippies.
