I know successfulpeople who smoke marijuana. But they don't do too much they aren't complete stoners. for the people saying that successful people don't smoke weed and it's okay to drink well how about the fact that there aren't that many successful alcoholics.
That's the way I feel about it.
Tony Stark is a successful alcoholic.
Congratu- fucking -lations
Have an opinion?
For one, when I sit down at the table and have a glass of wine, all my comrades aren't inhaling big doses of wine smoke in the air. For two, having a drink won't make your clothing and surroundings reek like alcohol.
Are kidding? Lol, how smelled with beer on their breath before? It smells terrible.
i can smell pot when i walk in a room... beer breath, not so much.
because marijuana is illegal. at least where i live. and while alcohol is a depressant, while marijuana warps your perception. it is much more dangerous to wander the world (especially in a car) while on hallucinogens.
typed "while" twice, oops
Have you ever smoked weed before"
never have, never will.
It doesn't do that at all.
i would rather believe multiple official sources and education, rather than a stranger on the internet.
Research, that shuts everyone up.
i think its because pot makes people hungry and sleepy, which is not that good for partying, drinking is more universal as well, almost everyone drinks, but people are more reluctant to smoke, also booze is much cheaper i usually smoke after i am done partying get an ill crossfade eat crappy pizza at 3am and pass out lol!
Because one is legal, the other is not.Why is alcohol legal? Because it's addictive so the government can tax the hell out of it.Why is marijuana illegal? Not sure, actually, heh.P. s.: I don't do drugs, I don't want to mess with my brain.
Alcohol doesn't smell (at least not at the time) and you don't have to be outside. You can natter and drink without freezing your balls off, whereas you can be in a nice heated bar/pub/restaurant/etc and have a drink.Also, as many have pointed out, ones legal, one isn't.
because every since the US wrongfully demonized marijiana and classified it as a class 1 drug along with heroin etc . the whole world made it illegal. so, to most who haven't tried or done research themselves, its a terrible drug. having said this, its not the best thing to do on a night/day out. it makes you sleepy and sedates you... its perfect for home and small gatherings.
Marijuana isn't as easy to control its supply, and thus more difficult to regulate and tax.Also alcohol and tobacco, historically in the USA, are goods that were the basis of the economy since this nation was created.
Because of who your friends are ;) my actual guess though is because marijuana is illegal in many places and hasn't been around for as long as alcohol so it isn't as accepted by adults. Just my $.02
Culture basically. If you smoke a joint, you're probably a hipster or whatever. But if you have a sip of Bourgogne Chardonnay, that makes you "cultured."
Two reasons, and they're intertwined.One is legal, one isn't.For those of european descent, one is a longstanding part of our culture, the other isn't.
that's really weird in my opinionmarijuana is LESS harmless than alcohol... but people believe the opposite
From personal experience Weed > Alcohol.Sure weed's pretty expensive. But it offers very few to no health risks, compared to Alcohol.My friend's Mum died from Alcohol abuse, she went into a coma and died from shock.Now his Dad is issued with task of raising two kids by himself. Hangovers are just the worst. When I smoke up, I'm not one of those people like to post FB/Snapchat stories about it. That's lame. I just go around a friend's house and play Xbox. No better feeling. Each to their own though..
Because the government has created that reality, therefore it is part of mass culture.
because one smells really bad and the other doesn't
Look at a colorado in 10 years and it will probably be equal. Simple fact is because one is legal and the other isn't.
Well lets be perfectly honest... About 80% of the people who consistently smoke marijuana aren't really successful particularly in high school we can see this. So when the people who were working hard in high school eventually get somewhere they look back at all the people who were popular saying "Oh they smoked weed and had sex so they were losers". Additionally regardless of what people say marijuana is a demotivator people who smoke it just want to do nothing and smoke weed there are some functioning stoners but most aren't that's why it's not seen as something acceptable.
Because the world is full of self righteous hypocrites... & one's legal. But that's only because the hypocrites make it that way.It's just like smoking. a person will cry bloody hell because someone has a smoke, then they jump into their 8 cylinder caddy & pollute the air 1000s of times more any smoker does
Depends who you hang with, I have acquaintances who wouldn't say I was a loser considering our respective professional and social circles, they think people who smoke weed are losers but they don't know that I do it- shows how full of shit people are.
The only people who say shit like that are the ones that have never tried it/ and or afraid of it.
I don't know. Maybe it's because when we think about drinking we think about socialising like one or two drinks won't harm but when it comes to drugs we immediately get that picture of a junkie. I mean when you take drugs you start hallucinating which is not reality, it is wrong. Alcohol doesn't do that to you.
Yeah it just kills you instead.
I think this answer is pretty reasonable. Many people consider halusinigens as a way to escape reality. Not only does weed affect the brain (not actual body) by making you relaxed which equates to laziness which could lead to unemployment, it also shows others you have a careless personality (including you don't give a shit about the law).Now this is a huge generalization but it's also the basic way society views weed smokers as. Not my fault, just the way it is but for a good reason.As for alcohol killing you, so untrue. It's when you abuse it that kills you. Pretty much like everything else in this world.
There is more of people dying from alcohol abuse than marijuana abuse.
Yes but that wasn't the question, you asked why it's more socially acceptable.
Yes it's more social to drink
Alcohol and weed are for losers.
