Marijuana vs. Alcohol

This topic kind of came up in another thread, so I figured I'd start a new one. Basically, I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on Alcohol and Marijuana...pros/cons, legality, do you use either, etc.


Personally, I don't smoke weed anymore...marijuana free for over 8 months now (and I don't miss it a whole lot...welcome back short term memory!), but before I was a regular smoker for about five years. I've been drinking since the age of 13 or so, and still hit the bar on occasion.

My views on the topic are as such:

Alcohol impairs rational thought...causes fights, jail time, even death (by consumption or any other means, such as driving). And it is of course, legal.

Marijuana makes things funny, gives you the munchies, and at it's worst, turns you into a couch potato with limited memory useage. And it of course, is illegal.

I don't quite understand why...the only thing I can come up with is that weed is relatively inexpensive and easy to grow, and alcohol is not only time consuming to brew, but the cost is right up there with simply buying it from the store. So what I'm getting at is that the government knows people won't take the time to brew their own brew, so they can assume a nice chunk of tax money from it. Weed on the other hand - if made legal - wouldn't generate nearly the amount of tax dollars because people would simply grow their own. (This also applies to cigarettes)

I could go on and elaborate on this quite a bit more, but I just realized I need to be up for work in six hours :) So go ahead and reply with your thoughts and I'll find some time to add to it as well.


G'night ya'll

I...uh....wha.....you don't know me man......huh?....is, is 'at ... uh sorry are you sitting there..... hehehehehehehehehehehe

I make my own beer, it's not really that hard. Having finally scored a copy of reefer madness I can understand why they outlawed weed if they really believed all that nonsense about it. But today it doesn't make a lot of sense.
I think the major problem with pot is telling WHEN someone has been under the influence. You wouldn't want your Pilot or Doctor high when they are doing their jobs and since it doesn't decompose in your system over a short time like alcohol a test can't tell if they just smoked it or it's in there from last weekend.

Personally, I don't like the effect pot has on me. I haven't smoked it in... probably over 9months. Even when I did smoke it, it wasn't regular. Here and there every so often.
Drinking I do, but not to the 'drunk' point. (most of the time) I find it easier to know my limit with alcohol than with pot.
I don't however have an issue with pot for other people. It's less harmful for youself than alcohol and tobacco, so why not?

I found an interesting site that talks about why it's illegal, if anyone is interested...

Personally, I don't know anyone smokes a joint; beats his wife and kids, kicks the dog, slams out the door, drives the car like a maniac, speeds through and intersection and wipes out the minivan carting Mom and the kids to soccer practice. Thats pure drunken behavior there.
Marijuana, on the other hand; drive home at 45 miles an hour, in a 55, come in the door giggling, sidle over and suck a little cock for the cottonmouth, cum like gangbusters, have a sandwich and take a nap. No harm done.

I was married to an alcoholic Navy man for 18 yrs. I personally think you have your head up your ass. oh yes....the military promotes alcohol use, encourages it. Then they send the drunken fools all over the world to represent us and they rape and pillage at will. Thanks, as a bona fide non conformist and humanitarian...please .don't fuck up the rotation baby.

OK I'm not done......and my job...is taking care of the less fortunate on a daily basis..elderly, developementally disabled. I see my children and granddaughter everyday...break up my day with a buzz. My ex military alcoholic ex husband...works at the counter in a parts store, has no contact with his children...by THEIR decision...has met his 4 yr old granddaughter on 2 occassions...and is still slowly drinking his soul away. Now, Im no trained Navy seal.(and its funny right there about the trained seal) but I have to say speaks for itself.

And I live in Wisconsin where the drinking ratio is 20 brazillion to ohh say about 14. They have such a thing here as the "Family Tavern", a concept I had not previously entertained. Having lived here 15 yrs, Im still not all that entertained by the idea. Tended bar in one or two of them, I wasnt impressed.

Fellow Wisconsites take heed...I bash not the fair dairy state so dont kill my buzz with that noise.

Atilla the hun seems to have a control issue & it is ok if you do not like pot. But your reasoning shows your ass <{by the way that is where shit comes from}> I would prefer to be around a pot head than a drunk anyday. Your reasoning must come from a bottle giving you beer glasses & muscles , as for us pot heads:; peace love & happiness & if you don't like it , walk away. Pot has not stopped me from creating several succesful buisnesses where as drinking affects my pecker in an adverse way. Limits my ability to enjoy sex, clouds my thinking & the buzz gets out of hand when overdone. Some do not like the effects pot has on your body.It attaches to the fat cells & deprives oxygen from the blood, but does not make you do things you normally wouldn't such as alcohol does &if you think a drunk soldier is a better weapon than a man who has his senses heightened to his surroundings than you are a sadly mistaken person & we are all better off without such a judgemental person. For i will be judged by one &you are not him.

marijuanna and alcohol effect every body diffrently but has that navy dude every heard of wiskey nose or the effects of alcohol on the liver but he says it cleans you out well it does just a litle to well for me pot is a much easier on me than alcohol tend to get out of control on alcohol I am a happy drunk but have made bad decisions while blacked out on alcohol pot on the other hand has never caused me to think I am ten feet tall and bulit resistant yes It can make you couch potato but it also can give you focus on only one task at a time for me playing pool stoned I am a better pool player playing buzzed up on liquor I am ok but fall to pieces as the night goes on later and another thing ask a cancer patient if they would rather smoke pot or drink for the pain they are going through I bet 10 out of 10 would choose pot

(( you smoke one joint and your brain dead , passive , not aware , and this for 30 days!!! see the goods and bads and outwhiegh them , if you think im wrong ...... go smoke a marijuana cigarette and go to your job at mcdonalds , but do us all a favor ........ dont join the armed services ))

Are we sure it is 30 days? Not 29, not 31? We do seem to have all the answers here. :: sigh::

So many ducks in this barrel, which one to shoot first?

If a guy (or gal, for that matter) is carrying, do I really want him/her to have a belly full of bourbon, seeing double and thinking s/he is king of the world and ready to prove it at the drop of a shot glass? Or someone laid-back and mellow, giggling at the world, solving it's problems in endless stream of conscious and somewhat disjointed discourse, interrupted only by munching on snacks?

Someone here made the point about dope attuning your senses. Indeed, it does. And that was one of the reasons so many guys in the jungles of Vietnam used it. (Yeah, I'm old enough to remember those bad ol' days. No, I wasn't there.) If someone's got my back, I'd rather s/he hear every crack of a twig or rustling leaf than weaving back and forth singing "Three Men in a Tub" at the top of his voice.

Put 12 adult strangers in a room with a stocked bar. Then put another 12 adult strangers in a room with a bag of herb. Come back in a couple of hours, and compare the two. The difference would be like night and day.
I've had to clean up after both, beer and pot partys. Alot bigger mess with the drinkers. Broken objects, spilled drinks, not to mention the vomit!!! The pot partys were not nearly as messy, nothing broken, but did have doughnut and munchie crumbs to vacuum up. And of course ashtrays to empty.
Seems like the government would try to bust God. If it wasn't for him. we wouldn't have marijuana.

Yesterday scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones.

To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, and couldn't drive. -- No further testing is planned.
