When did you start smoking weed?

2001. Off and on many many times.
they don't do them in the UK
I just ended up having to do more stuff and less time to sit around being caned.
Also once I'd moved away from university I didn't end up with any dealers in my social circle.
Not fussed, still light up at the occasional gig or band practice
Seems reasonable. After college I had to deal with random tests and initial job offer tests and moved to where I knew nobody too. Luckily within a year or two medical became legal and now its legal in a quarter of states here.
I went from wanting to get high to be fucked up to just wanting to relax and get sleep now. The occasional party time too, but that is about the same as drinking for me, rarely.
How is legalization looking in bongland? Here in ameriburger the states are quickly legalizing, but national level seems impossible.
I don't follow the debate, but as far as I see it there is a zero chance of legalization when there is a Conservative government in. Possible under a left-wing party perhaps.
The problem is everyone with a brain knows it would be a sensible thing to do, however the bad publicity amongst the brainless tabloid readers would be a vote killer.
So you have it better than us on that front.

We went past that mark around 2010. The politicians always universally opposed it because it meant evil to society. Now 2/3 of us don't care so its okay for the politicians to not care either. Fucking spineless cogs, they just care about being elected.
Nigger what? I do speed, I don't have time for downer shit, I have fucking work to do.
Thy do just care about being re-elected, which is why legalising cannabis in the uk isn't on anyone's agenda.
It would not help them get re-elected, and could in fact damage the chance. There is still a generation of people here that grew up on the propaganda that cannabis = gateway drug = eventual heroin overdose tragedy.
Shit, I grew up under Reagan and was told to believe Reefer Madness. I believed it because I was a impressionable kid. I grew up and realized it was as dumb as the easter bunny being real.
As you say, my parents generation still thinks its evil. Though my parents are the post ww2 generation so they think everything the government did was correct because they won the war.
I figured the conservatives would be for legalization, what with the insanely expensive cost of keeping people in federal prison for smoking a joint. As much as I think it should be legal for libertarian reasons, it should also be legal to reduce tax waste. But these are the same senators that 'know' the earth is 6000 years old.
