RE: Are smokers the only social people in the streets?
I used smoking as a social prop in art school. Was a little interesting too coz I'm a cigar smoker, and that tends to prompt more conversation xD

Even now I rarely smoke on my own.

Drinking is the same way, to a lesser extent.

Try a water pipe.
But instead of using tobacco use apple slices - it's awesome Big Grin

I do know what you're talking about, unfortunately I'm considered pretty so people are always social with me.... Smoking is something that is often on the mind so it's common to look around. You can see the same thing happen if you read books on the bus, people who also read will talk to you because of a shared interest. Smoking is just the kind of interest that at times means you're bothering everyone in a crowd till someone gives you a cigarette. Any time people start to talk with each other they generally want to part something more than complete strangers. I need a way outside of shaving my head that will stop the damn men >.>

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

I don't smoke cigarettes, but I do smoke... Other stuff, like my avatar. And it is also a great way of meeting new people, and people I have something in common. For me, smoking is great, I met tons of people, some of them are very good friends of mine even now, after many, many years...

You smoke weed ? Tongue
There actually are cigarettes for people with asthma or at least were. They had some medicinal herbal mix that would open the airways and end an asthma attack.

No, no i don't have asthma, I smoke weed and I don't think it helps asthma... Smile And I think weed is similar to the religion problem, all the governments are lying about the truth, and it's very hard to explain the truth to the people. That is why my youtube channel is dedicated to the truth about weed and religion.

The government here (Britain) has all but stopped lying about weed eventually and pointed out, quite rightly, that the real problem with weed is the dealers, the "skunk" and how the farmers are treated.
I haven't heard a "Cannabis rots your brain!" lecture for about 5 years now. Just a whole bunch of "Do you know how many people get hurt to produce just one kilo of weed?" lectures.

If you're on YT , check out C0nc0rdance's videos on the topic :

(needs Sign In - somebody flagged it as inappropriate)
And the follow up he did to respond to criticism :

I respect him because he actually uses papers and studies to back up his claims. There seem to be a lot of negative health effects to being a constant , long-term user. Occasional smoking doesn't seem to be a problem but the long term isn't that good.
I have to get around to reading all the papers at some point.
And before you say - I'm not on the fence of pro or nay - I'm more in the grey area regarding marijuana.

I love weed, I'm an occasional smoker though, just a few times a month
