and to visit the drive thru at Taco Bell at 2:30 in the morning for a #5 and an order of Cinammon Twist. Weed is also the reason Taco Bell and 7 Eleven is open 24 hours. Munchies, Papers, and Black & Milds whenever you want them!
Only if offered and in the mood..not my preferred vice. Before drifting w/ a bud on the upper Hoh in the late 70's at 0 dark early after closing the bars in Forks, he's on the sticks, lites up a fatty and I say "Jim, wtf". He says "So I don't get scared". Hmmm, and we caught some nice steel to 16lb.
I have to agree. All of my friends who smoke all have there lives together, most are better anglers than me, they have good jobs, pay taxes(except on the weed) and are fine upstanding citizens, Minus the fact they are technically criminals for something way safer than going to the bar for a few. Wow, I wish I lived during prohibition times, not only would the fishing be better I would be an outlaw for going to the speak easy cool. What our country needs to do is tax the crap out of the stuff, fix budget problems uncrowd jails, And put non violent offender in treatment programs and we would be better off. Plus if we keep telling our kids how dangerous the stuff is(lying to them) When they finally try it, realize it didn't hurt them and go and try blo we only have our selves to blame. Education is key
Grass is a huge deal here in the States. Americans love smoking weed. We grow the best in the world. We smoke more then anyone else. It's just the way it is. It isn't a west coast or east coat thing it's a US thing. Some of the most succesful people I know are recreational pot users. Some of the least succesful aren't. I'm not saying it'll make you succesful, there are studies that say otherwise. What I'm saying is that people accross the board in the US of A burn. You really never know who does or doesn't.
To answer your question though pan, no, not everyone smokes pot. A lot of Americans do though and fishing takes place outside and is a leisure activity, hence pot smokers will light up. It's not a whole lot different from a concert, or hiking or skiing. Go to your local mountain or concert venue. If you look you'll find Americans doing what they do.
It's a non-issue to me. Seems to be a matter of personal liberty.
Agreed, needs restructuring. Out with the old Nancy Regan teachings in with the new. Just another waist of taxpayers money fighting this Glass war. Its a Glass war because its made of smoke and Mirrors.
