    They can`t all be liars. If the people that obviously smoked were liars that would make them clean.

    How are they all liars when most of them said yes? And it`s perfectly feasible that some people haven`t.

    I`ve never smoked pot. Last June, I had a 24hr layover in Amsterdam and finally thought I would try it. I bought a brownie in a coffee shop and ate half because I had read eating pot is stronger than smoking. Didn`t do a thing. If I hadn`t been worried about catching my plane home I would have tried the other half but I just threw it away.

    Yes you do. Me. The only experience I`ve ever had of drugs was being given morphine in hospital once (it was very nice, btw - I can see how people get addicted to it).

    I applied for a Government job in the UK once, though, that involved a drugs test and filling in a questionnaire about your past drug usage. They found it really difficult to believe I`d never taken a single illicit drug, even experimentally at University. I had to explain to them that whilst I appreciated past drug use wasn`t that big of a deal, that I *really* had just never tried any. It`s like telling a psychiatrist you`ve never contemplated suicide: they find it difficult to believe anyone exists that hasn`t. The French call it "Deformation Professionnelle" - the tendency to view the world through the narrow filter of your own professional experience.

    As with the other IABers who responded to Gerry, I haven`t had pot in any form and have no desire to. I`m 21 and in my 4th year of uni and I don`t even drink alcohol (last time I consumed any form of alcohol, I was in middle school and it was only a sip). I know other people who haven`t either; it`s not that uncommon.

    in my case, when I was 8 I had an uncle who offered me to smoke (a cigarette) and gave me some booze.

    The experience was so horrifying to this day I can`t fathom people enjoying using any kind of drugs. I don`t even get coffee, I don`t think I feel its effects.

    I also can`t speak for my brothers and extended family, and the rest of my friends, but I`m pretty sure I can count the ones who have even tried it with one hand and have fingers left.

    I`ve tried pot a few times over the decades. MEH! I prefer the booze!

    Never smoked a cigarette, ever, even once! Filthy habit, that is.

    @jendrian: I think your uncle did you a favour! It could be he intended to "take the mystery" out of it and thus prevent you from making a mistake later in life. You should call him up (or offer a prayer) and thank him!

    The majority of people around you have tried it. Whether they tell you or not.

    @lauriloo: I didn`t get high the first time I tried it just like most people. One theory why that happens is because of the adrenalin rush that occurs because you`re trying it for the first time. It seems to counteracts the effects.

    @MacGuffin: Maybe that`s why you seem so uptight all the time.

    I never did. Had the chance to, and turned it down. I`m against legalizing it, but if it does get legalized, I will probably try it. That`s right, I`m a goodie two shoes who hasn`t tried it just because it`s illegal.

    I know quite a few who smoke regularly (a few times a week) myself included, who have no problems caused by smoking weed. Every one has a relatively normal life, good job, pay taxes, and a home in the suburbs with a wife & kids.

    It`s the same as people who get off work and stop by their neighborhood bar for happy hour. In fact, I know a few people whose lives have been destroyed by alcohol abuse (lost their jobs, house, wife, etc) and it`s legal.

    @5Cats "I think your uncle did you a favour! It could be he intended to "take the mystery" out of it and thus prevent you from making a mistake later in life. You should call him up (or offer a prayer) and thank him!"

    My dad did the same thing. He let me have a puff when I was little and I choked soooo bad. Never tried it again even though my dad smoked like a chimney around me. My parents also let me have a little beer occasionally when I was young. Maybe that`s why drinking has never been a big deal for me.

    I honestly wonder if drugs would ever do anything for me. When I`ve had percoset, vicodin, halcyon, etc. for medical issues I`ve never gotten high from them. Sleepy at best. They gave me the halcyon for a gum graft and told me I would probably pass out and not remember a thing. I was wide awake and normal the entire time. Good thing because the doc showed me the reconstituted cadaver skin they used for the graft and I thought that was pretty c

    Honestly, I pity people that pride themselves on having denied themselves experiences that are deemed "not normal" by the mainstream.

    Be your own person. Don`t just do what people tell you you`re allowed to do and draw your own conclusions. After all, the only people that knock drugs are the ones that have never done any.

    @MacGuffin: You`re from the Glasgow area and you`ve not done any drugs? You must be something special indeed :p

    Reignblazer, you`re telling us to be our own person by doing something we don`t want to do (for whatever reason) just because you/others like it? Maybe I`m misunderstanding you... but it`s our own choice. I`m not telling anyone they shouldn`t do it if they want to, just because I personally don`t want to.

    That`s funny. I`ve always felt like I`m out of the mainstream for never having tried it. Most everyone I know has done it, and I`ve refused when offered.

    If you`d made that statement outside the context of a thread in which it had been suggested everyone in the world *must* have smoked pot, you might have a point. But you didn`t and you don`t. In this context you just sound like a bitter stoner that`s pissed because everyone else isn`t exactly like himself. A bit like those saddos who can`t drink alone, and who go around annoying everyone they encounter socially, demanding to know "if they`re driving" as justification for their not getting as obnoxiously drunk as them.

    Is that the same way legitimate rape gets shut down?

    For the record, if it is in your lungs, it`s getting absorbed, that is how it works. If you mean it won`t be absorbed through your mouth alone, that is also not entirely correct.

    @5Cats: Actually my uncle was just kind of a middle aged party drunk who couldn`t hold a job. He was just having "fun" with me.

    @Reignblazer: The only reason I`ve denied myself the mainstream pleasures of all types of drugs, is because they seem like a big waste of time and money for me.

    @Hi-haole: There`s as much pride in not smoking weed as there is in not skateboarding or not playing golf. As MacGuffin said... this is a thread titled "All people who deny smoking pot are liars". What did you expect to see? Nods of assent?

    I suggest the people that have never try it to smoke at least once in your life. I assure that if you try it just one time you will not have any kind of damage or you will be hooked for life to it. If you free yourself from preconceptions about pot (this preconception can come from yourself or be imposed by the exterior)maybe you can find that is not the hell that someone want to paint. I really can`t understand people that talk bad about it and have never try it just one time. Try it once and after that you can say what you want about it. And in any case as for all things the moderation is important.If you start to smoke 3 pots a day everyday you are and become an idiot but if you smoke one joint a week maybe you will find that their relaxing and calming properties are not bad at all. Anyway booze is much more dangerous than pot. Alchool kill for real, pots no.

    piperfawn, why should we do something we don`t want to do, just to experience something we don`t want to experience? I can`t speak for others but I`m not talking bad about pot. Actually, I want it to be legal and I think is absurd that alcohol is legal but pot isn`t. But I still have no desire to smoke it (or consume it in any other form). Just like I have no desire to sky dive. Some people may like it, but I don`t want to try it and don`t see why people think I should just because they like it.

    The whole "pot`s so good everyone should try it you`re a prude if you don`t" crap starts to sway me in the other direction because it makes pot smokers sound like jerks. You do what you want, I do what I want, why cant it be left at that instead of trying to pressure others into doing something they don`t want to do?

    @Piperfawn

    I`m with Lillian on this one. I`ve never had any desire to try it, as I stated before, I`m just not interested. Like I said, I have nothing against it or the people who do smoke and I would very much like to see it be legalized. I just can`t stand it when I`m seen as a weirdo because I haven`t tried it before.

    Only thing that I disagree with you, Lillian, is that I would very much like to try skydiving. Static line jumps from 800 feet are starting to get incredibly boring.

    @piperfawn: I just don`t like smoking anything at all. And from all accounts, good and bad, it doesn`t seem like anything other than a waste of time that of getting high.

    If it was my choice, I would make it legal, heck, the industry benefits of the plants themselves are enough, but I really don`t mind other people getting high. I don`t fear for my brain, I don`t think it`ll hook me up, I just don`t think it`s worth it. Same reason I wouldn`t take up golf.

    I don`t smoke and haven`t smoked for a long time because I am trying to be responsible and not get negated on any drug test for work related interests.

    Not saying that that I condone the notion that smoking is bad... It should be legal and taxed just like alcohol, which is a far worse drug...

    C`mon @LillianDulci! Skydiving is fun, you should try it! You just go 10,000 feet into the air and... and then...
    Nope! I cannot even tease you about it! :-)

    Skydiving is NOT for me! Jump out of a perfectly good, Not-On-Fire aircraft? Heck no! >-(

    NOT every experience in this world "should be tried" ok?

    You like it? Fine! That doesn`t change MY opinion one little bit.
    You`re free to offer the suggestion though... but have to be willing to accept "no thanks" as a valid answer.

    Not picking on you @piperfawn, this is for all the others as well.

    I suggest the people that have never try it to smoke at least once in your life.
    I don`t care what other people put in their bodies, as long they don`t expect me to do it too. There are lots of experiences that other people choose to have that I don`t: voting Republican, having gay sex, holding religious beliefs, smoking pot. As long as they`re comfortable enough in themselves to enjoy their own subjective experiences without feeling the need to shove them down my throat, that`s all I care about. You shouldn`t presume to advise other people to behave as you do merely because you enjoy it. Don`t be that self-conscious alcoholic "are you driving?" guy mentioned earlier: he`s no fun to be around.

In any case i respect your decision, i don`t want to push anyone to start smoking pot. I am just curious on how someone that have never try it can be so convinced.
