How widespread is cannabis use in your country/region?
If we could try to make this less about our personal opinions and more about the matter in question, that'd be cool.
Pretty common here in Iceland. I wonder what the fuck our government is doing, how hard can it be to police a fucking island? All the weed is grown indoors so what the police need is extended powers to search property if we are to win the war on drugs.
I'm 18 and I go to a gymnasium (essentially the best secondary education) in Prague and like 60% of my class has smoked weed at least once and probably a third are fairly regular smokers. It's insane how weed is popular here. I smoke on average once a month I guess.
pretty widespread since decriminalization
basicly everybody doesnt give a shit if your smoking a joint in public and since theres a lot of supply and cops dont do jack shit about consumers since they cant arrest you if you dont carry over 5 grams
>roommate smokes 4 times a day on average
I don't know how he does it desu
Literally this except how hard can it be to police a fucking city state?
Hard drugs are literally everywhere. It's not unheard of to see people railing coke in public on weekend nights.
Come to Colorado. In SoCo, Spanish heritage fags abound here, and weed is basically free because half of the population grows.
15-30 years old - I'd say about 30% smokes from time to time (1 time a month)
30+ yo - definitely less than 1%
We have a different drug that we inject on the regular tho
Very. Compared to other drugs people import (i.e. coke for $300 a gram) it's cheap because people just grow it. You could score weed pretty much anywhere. I live in NSW which has the toughest drug laws but cops aren't really interested in perusing it unless you were dealing or they were trying to pick you up for something else.
It's reasonably common in the larger cities, but probably less so than in most European countries. People seem to be getting more tolerant and open about it though.
I would do this if smoking any reasonably sized joint didn't get me way too high. Tobacco ruins the flavor.
Very heavy, and no surprise heaviest in the legal recreational states.
Personally I smoke a lot, usually once a day. Usually out of a big bong.
I like it a lot. Actually helped me kick my cocaine addiction. It's the only drug I use now aside from smoking cigarettes.
people are pretty generous with weed here, most people share.
honestly I drink a lot more. Beer when I go to a tavern and weed at a houseparty, I go to a tavern more often. I will actually finish gymnasium a month after I turn 21. Schools last many years here and I went a year later when I was 7.
>it heals cancer actually
tell that to my friend's dead dad, my friend was buying him hash oil to treat his cancer, he even spoke to people who were "cured" by weed and I even told him that dead people can't speak up and say yup weed doesn't do shit
you rip the paper so that you smoke less paper it's not about the cone shape, you can also burn it off
>criminal or some underclass fellow
Funny how that's a stereotype, because cocaine is a rich persons drug.
I used it in college to help me pass law school. Addiction followed me for about a year until I moved to Oregon and started smoking.
I still miss it from time to time but it's a shit drug that'll take everything from you if you're not careful.
If you smoke with older Americans, the ones who started smoking in the 70's and 80's, they never ever use filters and usually hemp only papers.
I can't use raw papers anymore because the taste just reminds me of old hippies I used to know who passed.
Why not just buy the pre-made cones?
Also, the weed is 100% harmless and even cures cancer meme pisses me off. Like stoners don't already have enough of a problem with being viewed as deluded morons without this nonsense.
educated people know that coke and smack are only to abuse poor people
for us gymnasium is junior high school
it doesn't cure everybody but it has healing effects
"Medicinally" legal here in Michigan
>oowww my back hurts
and you can grow your own
Very common, but many new user since made okay for medical use
>No such thing.
That's why you people develop weed tolerance really fast, you're smoking half gram joints
can smoke it till the end, weed particles aren't flying into your mouth
well it does help manage pain
>coke and smack Are only abused By poor people
You must not be very educated then, because good coke is far too expensive for anyone but the high class to afford on a daily basis. Poor people use crack and meth.
>That's why you people develop weed tolerance really fast
Joints are for groups. How can anyone smoke a whole joint to themselves? Who does that? I feel like I'm talking to someone from the 90s.
Also, tobacco is gross.
>weed particles aren't flying into your mouth
This doesn't happen if you roll them correctly. Also, just pinching the end stops this.
I just realized I've been smoking pot longer than some of you have been alive. Fuck.
This is just wrong. Poor people do coke, and that's partially why they stay poor. A weekend of partying could pay for a community college class.
t. from white trash Chicago exurbs
even miley cyrus is laughing from people who do cocaine
hahaha you have crack?
>too much weed
is it painful to be autist?
i highly doubt they are filling with tar it's removed from body
are they molested you?
Why? Why not just smoke a fucking bowl? Is their weed that shitty that a bowl won't get them ripped?
>is it painful to be autist?
Probably more-so than being a window licking retard.
People smoke solo joints because you people don't add tobacco I imagine you roll a 1cm joint. Also, how do you smoke the whole thing without a filter
Why would you do that? It's cheaper.
>Why not just smoke a fucking bowl?
not worth the hassle
>why not smoke a fucking bowl
Not everyone who smokes lives where it's legal. It's not exactly discreet to bring a backpack with a bong in it when you go out to smoke. A joint is a lot easier to do faster or throw out if you get into trouble.
Some people also prefer joints straight up, old smokers especially. I know old dudes who'll puff on doobies for hours but won't touch bongs or pipes because "it hurts muh lungs,"
Colorado Springs, CO here
marijuana use is very common here. my apartment complex is across the street from an mmj dispensary and a club, there's another dispensary down the street too. there's quite a few dispensaries here and you just need to walk around for 15 minutes before smelling pot
>nobody uses crack
>poor people do coke
Yeah, so accept in Poland that things are different than in the states, and in different places coke is different prices. Here it's a rich persons drug, why are you fighting the fact that could be true.
Hopefully. Can't wait until it's made legal in Brazil. Hope I'm alive to see that day. But with all the money drug dealers, politicans and other criminals make out of this war on drugs, I don't know how soon it will be.
This is factual.
>Why would you do that? It's cheaper.
Pre-rolled 1g cone joints are $10. That's as much as a drink at a bar.
Again, why so stingy, Janez?
>not worth the hassle
If you're rolling your own joints, how is that less hassle than smoking a bowl.
>Coke is $300 - 350 a gram here.
What? No. Just no.
Who said anything about bongs? A little bowl is very discreet, not to mention that you shouldn't be smoking in public in the first place, you adolescent dirtbag.
Windowlicker is a term for a mentally impaired person, retard.
They don't have names here, you just know it when you live one I guess
Well it depends, there are several kind of parties and some of them have names. It's not the same whether you are in club with normies, in appartement, in a rave etc
>weed could never outdo alcohol
Disagreed. I think when the idea of passing a bowl around the dinner table becomes a normal thing, people will opt to smoke more regularly than drink.
>who said anything about bongs?
I did, and even then it was just an example. Calm down gramps, I'm not attacking you. You may want to take a T break, all this smoking is making you hostile for no reason.
>A little bowl is very discreet
maybe in some places, but I would much rather throw out a half smoked joint over a small pipe I had to pay for.
>not to mention you shouldn't be smoking in public in the first place
Not everyone lives in buttfuck flyover bud. A joint in the park is a much better option for some people over obviously smoking pot or have it mistaken for something harder in a pipe if you happen to be seen.
>you adolescent dirtbag.
Guarantee that I'm about the same age as you. Even then, don't see why you would instantly make that correlation unless you were that very same dirtbag smoking out in public when you were young. I mean jesus fuck who didn't take a toke or two off a joint at a concert back in the day.
>Pre-rolled 1g cone joints are $10. That's as much as a drink at a bar.
Or I can just buy 32 filters + rolling paper for 1.8€
>not worth the hassle
The bong water smells like shit, there is usually too much weed in the bowl so you're wasting it, blazing it in a park on a bong would just e the weirdest shit ever and would require a backpack.
I even roll my own cigarettes to save money, just rolling a joint isn't really a hassle
I've meant ecstasy, if you party hard on ecstasy you will feel like shit for 2 days
>here it's about 2 euros
so your people here probably complain that the beer is too expensive.
Nah everyone smokes everywhere I've been, its the most popular intoxicant in Egypt and Indonesia for example, two Muslim countries with death penalties for certain drug crimes.
>I've meant ecstasy, if you party hard on ecstasy you will feel like shit for 2 days
Oh yeah, took it 2 times for now but each time only pill (washed down with a lot of weed tho) so I never felt as wasted as I can be with a hangover
There's a big stigma on weed in here. You either fall into the category of the philosophy major dirty hippie leach or a none consumer, there is not middle ground, so most people don't smoke weed or avoid people that smoke it all together.
If you come out with the topic with people you just met, there's a 90% chance that you'll be rejected avoided and outcasted. So if you smoke pot, you better hide it, and hide it well.
>So if you smoke pot, you better hide it and hide it well.
Honestly that should be the philosophy at all unless you live in a place where it's legal. I think a large part of the "stoners are dumb," stereotype comes from the fact that the only stoners who let people know they are stoners are usually pretty dumb people.
>any kind of coke availability
I get your point, but now you've just opened a whole other can of worms. Why would coke be cheaper in the country?
>bong water smells like shit, there is usually too much weed in the bowl so you're wasting it, blazing it in a park on a bong would just e the weirdest shit ever
Why the fuck do people keep bringing up bongs when I say smoking a bowl? I'm not talking about bongs.
Weird. There are definitely still cultural "stoners" (more like weed addicts really) here in Canada but its become so widespread that more people are casually consumers than not so there's no real stigma because most people aren't ignorant of its effects and therefore don't think its anything scary/retarding like in other countries.
>why would coke be cheaper in the country
it probably wouldn't be, I was just throwing something out to match the richfag name. But you're right, bad name to pick.
I think Canada is a special case because medicinal was legalized there all the way back in 2001. You guys have had your fair share of shit over weed but not nearly the same amount of fearmongering that becomes daily propaganda for the general populace in a lot of places, especially here with kids when it comes to things like D.A.R.E
People want to be as less related to narcotrafic as they can, so in order to make it work most people demonize all ilegal drugs.
I'm not saying is either bad or good. But I don't really see the point of drug dealers poisoning their own people. And let me tell you something I've learnt from experience, but Weed indeed is a gateway drug, at least in here it is.
this guy is correct >>55020159 The coke trade is in the Americas and we're a giant island on the other side of the world, also small population.
South east asia has opium and weed. You would have to be fucking retarded to try to traffick anything out of south east asia, there's nothing they love more than executing a couple of round eyes over drugs charges.
>Weed indeed is a gateway drug, at least in here it is.
I've always thought weed could be a gateway drung, not because of weed itself but because of the kind of people you start seeing when you smoke
I made a lot of friends through weed, and a lot of them use much harder stuff so sometimes I'm tempted
>I don't really see the point of drug dealers poising their own people
the way I've seen it happen over and over
>dumb kid comes to buy from low-tier dealer for the first time
>baited into coming again because first pickup was discounted or even free
>2nd bag they buy is lightly laced
>bam, kid becomes an addict and comes back to buy every day
when you don't care about people, abusing their addictions to farm their money isn't really that uncommon of an idea.
i don't know, i stick to people who smoke joints, i had very little one once
yea, expect weird faces when you say that you use this drugs
buying joints? i really don't get it, why you pay people to make joints for you?
>Windowlicker is a term for a mentally impaired person, retard.
and i know that retard
thank you for enlightening me about my country culture
Mexicans I knew in USA were stoners a lot
Literally never heard of this happening and almost always this sort of setup is a financial loss to the retailers so its unlikely this would happen frequently.
"laced weed" is on the same level as "weed causes [cancer] [schizophrenia] [birth defects]" in the realm of stupid arguments for keeping something illegal.
~50% of the population has used it at least once, and something like 15% uses it regularly.
Legal in 4 states (Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Alaska) and in Washington DC, medically legal in 23 others.
Pretty widespread, I'd guess that it will probably be federally legal in like 3 years.
It doesn't happen nearly as much as people want you to believe but it still happens, although mostly if not exclusively in bad areas.
You're right, it's a beyond stupid argument for trying to keep it illegal, because legalization actually fixes the problem of laced weed. That's not why I said it though.
It happens here, I know kids who've had it happen to them. Again, not as common as people claim but it's a risk with buying any street drug.
I can imagine that sort of thing would be a problem in crack communities yeah. Weed has become thoroughly white middle/upper class in Canada so its straight and narrow. I get home deliveries from a 30something white guy in a Fiat lol
Its become the norm in Toronto because of how competitive it is to be a weed dealer here. If you don't have kush and you don't do prompt home deliveries you can forget about having any clients over the age of 20. Legalization will only make it even more so. Bless the free market
Coke won't stink the fuck out of your car and generally is bought in much smaller amounts. Even a half O of weed, no matter how well contained, still manages to make things smell lightly, especially if it's D a n k.
Can't wait for it to be a thing here 2bh. How long until federal legalization or decriminalization? 3-5 years?
Pretty widespread even among professionals. Dad smokes mom doesn't (she's a judge). I'd say the majority of people in college at least tried it. Most of my friends still smoke occasionally. Usage probably peaks in college and slowly goes downhill. My dad is kind of the opposite. He started smoking again after he retired. He told me my uncle does as well.
Yea my friends dad did it as well. He just retired from a government job and now he can smoke. Every time I'm over he's high as fuck watching TV or playng solitaire on his TV. lol
>not being Rocky Mountain high
Who's the faggout now?
Pretty widespread. People from all corners of society buy it. I used to sell drugs, I started selling cannabis and hash (called "ganza" here) when I was 16.
Sometimes I'd sell marijuana for 10€/gram. Sometimes 8.50€/gram. It all depended on the supply, I was pretty generous. Made a lot of money. Got greedy and started planting my own shit and moving bricks.
I think that it should be entirely legal. The black market is pretty nasty and dangerous, even here.
I don't trust pre rolled joint, I've been to Amsterdma and pre rolled are a Russian roulette, I've had excellent one and some I could barely smoke
And I prefer rolling myself anyway, I know people who always ask other to roll their joints, when they're alone they're fucked
damn son. popo caught me with a scale and high as fuck. They took the scale but didn't take the bong xD
>prison for at least 3 years
damn... pretty rough, worst i'd get is a ticket.
They suspected i was growing some, but had nothing so they just told me not to smoke weed and left. Not a criminal type and respected them like normal ppl deserve, they're just doing what they're told but they could lay off with the weedbusts. It's retarded and causes more harm than good.
If we had law like in your country... A smoker dream. In my country they treat smokers (weed or cigs) like a criminals. You can get a 50$ for smoking a normal cig in a place where it's forbidden which means almost every fucking place.
Poland sounds pretty strict. Ours is nowhere near heaven but enough lax for me to not give a fuck.
Maybe someday they'll stop this bullshit but its too late then to get tourist revenue or anything from it since we would probably be too late in legalization.
Our ministry of health are bunch of lying fuckheads
Our country is one of the most corrupted countries. Our laws are stupidly strict and our police is a bunch of young assholes with a stick up their asses. You have to smoke or drink to don't care about that.
