Because it's boring as hell and, I've tried it twice over the years, but I don't really care about it and can't see myself ever getting into it.

It's basically the new thing around my circle of friends and the funny part it's mostly my friends younger brother, 17-18-ish, and his friends who are REALLY into it and always smoke the most. But my friend and others just sometimes can't pass it up. So what happens? We sit there and watch TV or whatever with absolute silence.

They also do it directly where we always hang out, in my friends basement. I don't mind maybe having a little contact, but I do mind the smell and the smoke scratching my eyes. I really wish they'd do it somewhere else.

Weekdays, weekends, whenever we hang out even on some of our usual get togethers, it seems like there HAS to be weed there now. I don't give a shit if they do it all the time when I'm not around, but it's pretty often now and when I'm there, it's not that amusing to me.

There's just one guy in our group who's really straight edge even with alcohol and whatnot, we talk about it sometimes but I'm still not sure exactly how much it bothers him.

Honestly this is just pointless but I wanted to rant and in the end, it's probably just my group of friends that I'm getting burned out on at the moment. This is just another new factor that's popped up that's made hanging out even more boring than it used to be at times. It just seems like my best friends are getting lazier and lazier and it bothers me I guess. But I can be pretty inner-ignorant about putting myself above others with my thinking sometimes. Who knows, maybe it'll be best if I meet some new people next year when I go back to school. My other group of friends that I still keep in contact and see here and there, are just so busy with school and other things it's sadly just become an every-few-months hangout with some of them.

Uggggggggh I just need a nice lady friend.

I guess with the weed thing, I'm just trying to say that I wish my friends would be a little more respectable about it and not do it ALL the time now, because it's a fact they know some of us don't care for being around it. But nothing changes.

I personally can't stand the smell and all the stoners I've met are complete one-sided idiots. Good thing none of my friends do it constantly, I mean they would have their fair share of "what I did when I was high" stories but they aren't weed-zombies, ever.

A ton of my friends are stoners.

I could never date someone who indulges in it, though. I mean, Brandon did before we dated, but I don't think I could stay with him if he did it at all.

I dunno. There's a shadiness to smoking it, and though I don't mind when my friends smoke it in the same room I'm in, I just think it's silly and juvenile, really.

Most of the people I know who smoke it are over 35 and they act like freakin' 8-year-olds not getting enough ice cream and candy when they smoke it (like they get all giddy and need more) and they're always so pissed and irritable when they aren't high.

Just when I was getting a little over this, my friend hopped in my car this morning before work started to tell me about his story last night going into some weird woods, while "tripping balls" on K2 or something like that. He says it's legal, but... so?

I'm pretty sure this is the second drug outside of weed he's tried out, along with his younger brother and some other people. I have a feeling this won't be the last thing he tries either.

I just don't think talking to him will do anything. I'm pretty close to telling him how bored of these stories I am though. Everything he ever does now, "yeah we totally smoked and...", I seriously just do not care at all, lol.

That's so dead on for me. I'm only 21 but I seriously can't help but feel too old for this kind of stuff even if I was never into it or anything, it just seems silly and pointless.

Also thirded. All of the people I know who do it are seriously years behind where they need to be. Then again, I know some alcoholics that are the same way, or worse in some cases.

I still say that weed should be legalized, even though I hate it.

I know somebody who deals and smokes it like crazy. Basically a large aspect of their life, it seems. The smell annoys the shit out of me, and it seems really boring and pointless *shrug*. Just never had the urge to.

I honestly don't think I'd care if this happened either, in fact, by legalizing it that could remove the oh no "taboo" effect some people might get off on with using it. Which is utterly childish but, I'm pretty sure it's a fact that could be why some people do it. Totally the same deal with underage drinking and whatnot.

Also, my friend smoked more of that stuff and the usual tonight... ugh. Luckily he seemed more "there" tonight though and was still responsive, having a good time, etc. Didn't feel like I wasted my time hanging out there tonight.

The older brother though showed some signs of being extremely pissed about the situation though. Basically, as mentioned above they do all the smoking in the basement, and that's where his room is. Apparently these morons have gone down there and woke him up a few times (he works nights at FedEx so his sleeping schedule is different). And I think my friend, whom despite doing all this stuff too, is quickly starting to realize his younger brother and friends are basically in a sense, just using them to get to his bong/drugs/basement etc.

I should probably just start using their names?

Older brother - Andrew
Best friend - Aaron
Younger brother (heavy smoker) - Angelo

It's funny because Andrew, despite talking about a few good times he's had while being high, and having been a dealer for a very quick instance when he lived down around the college town at KU ... does it the least, by far. Out of like 10 or so times I've seen the normal smoking group smoke, I've seen Andrew take maybe 1 hit. I get a sense that he doesn't really care for it, even if he doesn't quite want to admit it for some odd reason. Either way I can easily see where he's coming from in getting irritated by Angelo and his friends constantly going into the basement now to smoke. He made it pretty clear tonight he was pissed before he went to work, Aaron says he'll talk to them about it. Some of the girls that hang out with us usually are sick of it too.

So finally, I'm hoping this little phase comes to an end here soon. Luckily our Wednesday hangouts are being moved to Thursday (The Office and Always Sunny!), which I don't think is an option for Angelo and his friends... so I hope that helps too.

Some of my writers on the paper are getting all huffy about not being able to smoke their medicinal marijuana on campus. For the record, Southern California is practically Amsterdam with how many dispensaries we have and most people who have medicinal marijuana cards do not need the weed for medical reasons.

Anyway, these writers are all, "How come people can shoot up insulin at the health center, but I can't use my medicine?"



Then they bitch about there being rules about smoking within 25 feet of a building being prohibited.

To be honest, too many stoners come off like cry-babies to me.

Now as for legalization, it would benefit the justice system in that many people in prisons these days are there for drugs, especially marijuana, be it selling or using. By decriminalizing pot, it would make it so users of it wouldn't take up space in prison, making it so murderers and rapists wouldn't be let out early due to over-crowding.

At the same time, by making all these things illegal it lines the pockets of so many bad people who can get these things to the public--Colombian drug cartels, terrorists, gangs, etc.

Really, if it were made legal, so many people would get bored with weed so quickly.

Yeah, it needs to happen so they'd just all ... shut up about it. I think I'm starting to see the cry-baby comparison myself.

Friends smoked a bunch tonight too by the way.

Absolutely. Especially considering the fact that i'm usually high myself. Either people become a: more talkative, or b: clam the hell up and stop irritating me.

If you don't want to be around someone who's stoned...then don't. (or just feed them some speed...amazing stuff, speed)

I love the smell of a bit of weed.

Helps that I smoke it occasionally. *Shrugs*

Thing is, when my friends and I are stoned, we don't just sit doing stuff. I'm normally chatting very openly with everyone, talking about bollocks I used to never talk about sober, like politics, social networks, all kinds of stuff. I talk about them a lot now when I'm sober though, so it's all good.
