As far as tar in your lungs is concerned weed is a little bit worse by weight BUT most people don't smoke 20 joints a day like they do cigarettes so it becomes an issue of how large your habit is. MANY MANY people die of serosis of the liver and alcohol is plenty legal, not to mention how many people die from shooting/ingesting oxycontin, oxy-codone, adderal, valium, perks (spelling?), etc. People get dead more from things that are legal than they do from weed on any day.

That said I smoke weed and drink like a fish when I ride. Sometimes I definitely go a tad overboard and have to quit for the day but not too often. A decent buzz seems to give me a certain flow that when combined with some headphones loosens me up and helps my board eat up the terrain (not the park though ).

Haha aint that the truth. Ive gotten to the top a few times and stood there thinking Im not sure that was such a good idea. Its weird though because usually after the first run I dont even feel it anymore, i think adrenaline takes over.

kri$han oh, and about blazing and boarding; its pretty awesome... but there's three things you NEED to do:

1. Make sure u're not riding alone (Carmen is the perfect accomplice... can't wait to ride with you again, buddy!)
2. Make sure you're carrying water (hydration pack is KEY)
3. Don't smoke your usual amount... go lighter, u just want a *lil* buzz to relax you.

PS. it will NEVER be legalized, because authorities have no way of detecting how much you've consumed w/o a proper drug test... this makes blazing and driving a HUGE concern... with drinking and driving they can atleast prove how much you've had with a road-side tester. Its not possible with weed.

Oje Everyday, usually a few times a day. And theres nothing like riding up the lift puffin a J then to get to the top and crank my ipod for the ride down Been smoking for about 8 years now. Oddly enough though I have never tried a cigarette.

As for it being legal i think it should be and my arguement is because alcohol is. I dont understand why alcohol is so much more socially acceptable, i guess because it is legal? If you go home and have a beer or two at night no one will look at you funny, but tell people you puff a joint or two and theyll peg you as a drug addict. Both have negative effects on the mind/body and both will alter your state of mind but in the end I think alcohol is worse. I have some friends that will drink and get rowdy as hell, break shit, get in fights etc... my stoner friends usually dont feel like getting of the couch lol Ive just never understood why one is legal and the other isnt.

They won't make weed legal as it is easy to grow yourself, so its hard for them to tax you
This is exactly how I feel about it.

I've only recently started smoking it (read: since I graduated from university), and I'm glad I didn't start it when I was going through school.

Concerts - blaze
Chilling at home with a few people - blaze
House party - blaze

other than in those situations, I'd rather drink lightly than get high... its hard to socialize when ur high.

I find being high nicer, cuz excess booze does a number on my stomach so Ive never been a heavy drinker. At least when you blaze, you can get nicely wasted and still go to work and be normal the next day.

that being said, I was high last night at the Dave Matthews Band concert... fcuk I had a damn asss good time. I'm not much into DMB, but I enjoyed the show cuz I LOVE live music, and jazz... and they're more of a jazz/rock band than a rock/metal band.
