Several reasons. Being around those on drugs whilst you abstain is possibly the most irritating experience imaginable and my preferred response is to fuck off rather than join them just because then I'll be as bad as they are. Another contradictory reason is that I find alcohol sufficiently removing and understand it to be considerably less dangerous in moderation.
I completely agree with your situation, I've heard it before. Being the sober one around a bunch of fucked up people is most likely not a fun experience, but I've actually got a couple really good friends that have nothing but stoner friends and yet they do not smoke themselves.
I'm not sure how or why they tolerate, but they're really nice people.
I'm not sure if I'm understanding this last part right though, alcohol is /less/ dangerous than marijuana in moderation? From what I understand, alcohol is far worse for your body/liver than marijuana is to your mind/lungs but you are able to moderate both of them to prevent this type of extensive damage.

Not interested in trying. I actually prefer hearing about experiences with drugs instead of actually experimenting with them myself, hallucinogenics especially.
Yes, psychedelic experiences are super fun to read. Maybe I'll post a couple of mine later in the thread.

Lets go spend our valuable money on a drug that'll make us feel good for a little bit while putting us at risk of being arrested
I can already tell where this is going. You put an incredible negative spin on it.
No I don't smoke, I think it's incredibly stupid. I don't have a problem with other people doing it unless they think they're cool for it and sit around bragging about it.
Anyone bragging about smoking is a fool.
My brother has been smoking and drinking since he was in 8th grade, and their combined result was making him quit doing karate, be on probation for 6 months, spend 10 days in juvie, get his driver's permit suspended until he was 17, get his driver's permit taken away once he finally got it with his driver's license suspended until he was 18, and made him get into arguments with my parents every other day.
Newsflash, your brother did that to himself. Not the marijuana.
People who go "There's nothing wrong with it, it doesn't hurt you," apparently don't realize that just because it doesn't cause medical damage doesn't mean it's not harmful.
Whether your brother had started smoking or not, it sounds like he was bound to fail regardless. Sounds like you're just playing the blame game and Marijuana is the easiest target.
Also, it's no fucking wonder if he started when he was in 8th grade. Just a couple years too young to be involved in that shit.

Though I did promise my freshman roommate I would smoke once under a special circumstance, but that never happened.
If you've never done it, I'm not gonna say you should; but it might be fun to try one day around a close group of really good friends. Who knows, more power to you though.

Do you believe it's harmful?Smoke in your lungs is harmful. Either way...
Agreed, but this seems to be your only excuse so far. Far more people smoke cigarretes, something MUCH MUCH MUCH more harmful to you than marijuana smoke. You should be hating on them if this is the only thing you have for harmful.
What do you think about people who smoke?I've seen some people become asshats and cocksuckers, while I've seen others not change and stay the same person.
Protip: People can be dicks, on or off drugs.
And no, I'm not talking about while smoking, I'm just talking their lifestyle in general.
I feel like, whatever floats your boat, but don't act like it's cool, good for you, or try and push it onto others.
Agreed, people who act "cool" about it and push people into it are douchers. Not cool at all to force someone into it.
I smoke usually at least once every day or two and I'm fully functional on or off of Marijuana, I've been smoking since 16 and I haven't changed as a person because of it. I don't lose motivation because of lack of marijuana or get depressed when I can't smoke so why do some people think it's the fucking devil?Why do you insist on defending it with your "I'm okay when I do it, so why do people hate it" argument?
What do you mean insist? I'm just stating. I understand not everyone will like it, and as such that is the whole point of this thread; to ask and find out why you people hate it. The answer was in the question.
I really doubt you don't change when you smoke. I gurantee it slows you down as is the effect of the THC in it.
Not exactly. Why do people associate weed with slowing down? There are different strains meant for different buzzes, some of which give lots of energy and enthusiasm to the user.
There are strains meant for falling asleep to and sinking into your chair, or for getting up and doing stuff and being active.
I feel I have every right to experiment with my mind and subject it to any type of drug I want for either spiritual refinement or straight up tripping balls for fun. I enjoy bending my mind, seeing what it wants to show me, getting lost in stuff normal people would never even imagine in their wildest dreams.Oh watch out, because this guy smokes marijuana he is on a higher spiritual plane than the rest of us. All hail the high and mighty...
This is where you personally attack me and I get dickish on your ass. Where the FUCK do I even say that I'm better than anyone? Mightier? Smarter? This just shows you're picking words out of my post and tying yourself to them like a martyr. I don't believe I'm better than anyone, just more open minded.
Don't tell me to grow up when what I'm doing isn't childish.
I've done Mushrooms, LSD, Dimethyltryptamine as well. Nothing has opened my eyes and my mind farther than DMT. By far the most spiritual drug on the planet, my soul is cleansed and refreshed every time I smoke it and visit my millions of fractal friends.Lol your soul is cleansed? Shut the fuck up...
You've never experimented with psychedelics so it's clear you wouldn't understand the meaning. I'm not even going to argue this because it's like arguing with a christian about how their god isn't real, you'll just bury your head in the sand and refute all outside knowledge.
Seriously, I can tell you are one of those people that will defend it to the grave and no matter what, just because of your own experience with the shit, you won't listen to any other views or points.
This is bullshit, I'm listening now; you're just being a douche and I'm not even going to consider your points because none of them are backed up.
For one, I do drugs. That will not stop until my 30s or when I have a family. I will LISTEN to views and points, but it will not CHANGE anything about the way I view it.
I am still open minded.
