Straights vs. stoners
    #4222421 - 05/26/05 02:14 PM (12 years, 6 days ago)

Ever notice when discussing the legalization of our herbal and fungal friends, that the "straights" generally feel MORE free to be verbally abusive, while we must keep setting the kindler, gentler example, else any emotional display would be indicative of our drug-induced mental imbalance?

Yes, yes I have. However, I have also met straight people who were open-minded about it; and I've met stoners who automatically assume an antagonistic stance in ANY conversation...

None the less, I agree that the majority seems to follow that model.

I've also noticed that drunk drivers run stop signs while stoners wait for them to turn green.  :crazy2:

That is quite true.

I've never done that, but I have stopped at a green light...

That is because a bad example is continually set by many of the "stoners". Behavior like driving while impaired will never gain anyone's sympathy...including mine.

Driving impaired is stupid no matter what your on. I used to drive after taking 6 hits of good acid...I was a moron then.

Drunken people often like to fight or argue, most stoners like to avoid confrontation at all costs...

I agree with you completely and have said as much in this forum before. What floored me is that I got an argument about it!

If you can't wait to get to your destination to toke, you're not mature enough to be doing drugs.

Do what you will and take what chances you like with your own life, but don't take other people's lives into your hands without their consent.

"I used to drive after taking 6 hits of good acid.  I was a moron then."

How nice your changed behavior allows you to judge others so harshly.  :rolleyes:

But of course you are right in the sense that to endanger yourself and others was stupid then but we were just to stupid to realize it.

Still, let's not forget being young and stupid go hand in hand.  It's when one gets to be old and stupid like me that the problems really begin...

Although a handful of people in this thread have stated otherwise, I personally find nothing wrong with driving while stoned, as it applies to myself. Anytime I have driven while stoned, I always have been more intuititve in my driving, more aware of every aspect that accumulates into the driving experience.

In short, it feels great, taking command of a powered vehicle while altered. It becomes more of an experience for me. I have more subtle control of the wheel, accelerating and braking. I am more intimately involved with the movement and the forces, and that seems far less dangerous to others than being in such an unaware routine of driving that you aren't even consciously aware of what is going down on the road. Driving naturally becomes more subconscious from sheer routine, especially when it is the same damn road at the same damn time of day, every day. That is far more dangerous, that is nearly hypnotic, and it doesn't account for the unexpected. :wink:

Not even that your impairment selfishly puts others at risk?

I have more subtle control of the wheel

This is an illusion caused by the drug. You can't honestly believe what you're saying here.

Let me ask you this. Would you let your 5 year old daughter go for a ride with a stoned friend in his car? How about on his motorcycle? How about on an airliner with a stoned pilot?

If not, think about why not.  :mad2:
