Why does smoking cannabis still scare so many people?

Ducky · 31-35, F
They've been indoctrinated by the government's lies about it. At least progress is being made with its legalization.

Does it actually scare people? For me I just hate second hand smoke regardless of what it is. To each their own who want to do it. I drink. Same difference. But unless I spill on someone they are not getting 2nd
@BearDownChicago Until they're busted and given a summons to appear in court after they're booked. I have a friend in Northern California where there's a weekly arrest report in the local newspaper, he tells me at least 80% of them are for public imbibing.
BearDownChicago · 41-45, M
@NativePortlander1970 understood but like any other public nuisance crime there is little repercussion
@BearDownChicago Tell that to those who were busted.
SlaveEt · 36-40, F
Likely due to the health, social, economic and legal risks involved.
@SlaveEt Your very replies show you refuse to acknowledge the many medicinal benefits and attributes of Cannabis.

@NativePortlander1970
Lol. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to trigger you. I know, I'll make brownies! Would that make you feel better? 😃
Dshhh · M
they were taught to fear it.. for decades
some still think it is dangerous but no one ever has OD's on cannbis
are you in a Free State?
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@Dshhh unfortunately not anymore. They'd rather me take pills with a ton of side effects
Dshhh · M
@chickiegirl95 are they trying to medicate you against your will?
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@Dshhh they want me to take prescriptions because weed is lilligal
It doesn't scare anyone.

It is seen as an activity for losers because of the culture around it.

Look at the kind of people who visit headshops. Its not exactly an activity of successful people.

What comes to mind when people hear the word pothead? It's not a lawyer, a doctor, or Elon Musk (although he does smoke its not a personality trait like most people make it)
@NativePortlander1970 It doesnt matter. People put it in the same category as drinking and smoking cigarettes. Its actually viewed as worse because its illegal. You will have to convince the public not me.
@orioninthenight Only because of racist propaganda, started roughly 100 years ago, that created the public's brainwashing of its stigma.
@orioninthenight You find it funny, why?
GeorgeTBH · 31-35, M
🤷🏻‍♂️ but there are quite a few people on this site who should smoke some to calm down a bit

It doesn’t really scare anyone anymore. You smell it walking down any street, and look at the lines outside recreational dispensaries.

Who’s scared?
RedBaron · M
@chickiegirl95 It’s been popular for more than 60 years. That’s why it’s legal in so many states.

TV commercials don’t scare anyone.
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@RedBaron in the south they do lol clearly you've not been over here were churchgoers clutch their pearls lol
RedBaron · M
@chickiegirl95 That’s a few devout Christians. Nobody else cares what they think.
masterofyou · 70-79, M
Maybe they just haven't tried it.. in the past people could go to jail for using...
masterofyou · 70-79, M
@RedBaron Maybe now but not back then historically. History counts you know and most now days do not learn from History and make bad laws.....
RedBaron · M
@masterofyou Exactly. That’s a big reason why it’s increasingly legal and a source of tax revenue.

People also got tossed in jail for being gay. Nobody is suggesting that should happen today.

Smoked, the effects on the cardiovascular system are not benign. While maybe unscientific sampling, among habitual users I’ve been around, their lives seem to revolve around getting high and staying high.
RedBaron · M
@blackarcher256 Much like alcoholics and drinking.

Being illegal doesn’t prevent substance abuse and addiction.
blackarcher256 · 61-69, M
@RedBaron The question wasn’t about the legality of its use nor whether it is more or less benign than alcohol. It was specifically about people’s fear of it. I gave my perception.

I don't touch it, but you can poison yourself if you want to.
HumanEarth · 56-60, F
Try eating a pound of it with salad dressing
@HumanEarth Raw Cannabis is very good

Some people are always looking for something to be scared of.
Patriot96 · 56-60, C
Its a gateway drug
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@Patriot96 lol keep telling yourself that grandpa
RedBaron · M
@Patriot96 For people with whom I went to an elite public high school and an Ivy League university, it was a gateway to successful careers in law, business, and academia.
MaxIsGone · M
If we ever meet irl ill bring some:)
I'm not scared of it - just not a fan of feeling stoned or stinking of weed.
Workerbee · 31-35, M
I can barely stand the smell it makes me hurl
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@orioninthenight cannabis has literally been proven to not be addictive
Workerbee · 31-35, M
@chickiegirl95 for what? I don’t need cannabis or anything of the matter
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@Workerbee ok then don't 🤷
Workerbee · 31-35, M
Cannabis should only be for chemo patients.
chickiegirl95 · 26-30, F
@Workerbee why 😂 . It's been proven to help so much more
