Default Weed - opinions

I’m bored and just curious to find out people’s opinions on it.

Have you ever or considered smoking weed?
Do you regret doing so if you have?
How did it make you feel?
Do you know people or have friends that currently smoke it?
How do you feel about them and people in general doing it?
Do you think it could possibly lead to taking worser drugs?
Do you think it should be legalised in the UK?


I used to but I quit over 3 years ago, just one of those things where I was young and being stupid. I wouldn’t say I regret it totally either I mean obviously it’s not good health wise but me and my pals did have some laughs when we used to just chill and smoke.

To begin with I used to find it very relaxing but after a while it began to make me feel a bit depressed, kinda like I was wasting away so I stopped.

I know only a few people (some I’m surprised by) and a couple close friends that still do it. It doesn’t make me think any different of them or any other random person that does. I actually find drunk people more irritating than people who are a bit stoned.

Whether it should be legalised in the UK I’m not sure. I mean for medicinal purposes it could be very beneficial (especially those with illnesses where weed is quite effective). Recreational use I’m not so sure.

Have you ever or considered smoking weed? - Yes and I do probably a couple times a year at the least, went through a phase a few years back where it was a lot more tho nnnn
Do you regret doing so if you have? - No
How did it make you feel? - Great
Do you know people or have friends that currently smoke it? - Yes
How do you feel about them and people in general doing it? - Great
Do you think it should be legalised in the UK? - Definitely, slowly getting legalized in more and more states in the US

Alcohol is legalized, weed should be everywhere too when it's honestly not as bad for you and has less DUI-related effects and all that.

I'm all for it being legalised, there's study after study proving time and time again how amazingly beneficial it can be medically and how much less damaging it is long-term compared to alcohol.

That CBD Oil is honestly like magic when you watch videos of people with serious conditions like, for example, Parkinson's Disease getting instant relief from a couple of drops.

It is very beneficial for those who need it for medicinal purposes like Parkinson’s as you mentioned. I think in this sense it should be legalised. What are your thoughts about it in terms of recreational use LaLaLand? And have you ever tried it yourself?

I appreciate the honesty Jersey. I find alcohol to be worse than weed sometimes, I mean I work in retail (used to work the dreaded Saturday evening shift) and have been approached by people who are either drunk or stoned (or probably something else). The drunk ones are always loud or just being a bit of a nuisance (although not all are like that) but the stoners are always really chilled and polite most of the time.

Have you ever or considered smoking weed? - Yes, smoke it usually once every four months or so. Only ever socially though.
Do you regret doing so if you have? - No apart from once when I whiteyed
How did it make you feel? - Great (especially the ones in Amsterdam)
Do you know people or have friends that currently smoke it? - I’ve had a few friends in the past who smoked it on a daily basis.
How do you feel about them and people in general doing it? - it’s not really my life to interfere with, if they want to smoke weed regularly that’s their prerogative! They could be doing a lot worse though like taking coke daily etc.
Do you think it could possibly lead to taking worser drugs? - I don’t see how really, that’s like saying alcohol could lead to drug abuse.
Do you think it should be legalised in the UK? - Yes but heavily regulated like it is in The Netherlands.

Thank everyone for your opinions and honesty. I’m just trying to get an interesting debate going is all so I apologise if this came across as being a bit nosey or anything.

It seems to be a bit of a misconception that weed may possibly lead to harsher drugs. Previous studies have shown that their is no connection to the use of weed eventually leading to people taking more addictive and worser drugs.

I also believe that it would be a much better alternative than prescription drugs and other over the counter medications especially those who suffer from pain or things like insomnia. I mean are prescription drugs any worse? Some of the side effects can be pretty serious so would weed be a better substitute in this case?

I think this depends more on how much is being consumed. I mean you could smoke it every couple of days or so but if you were using very small amounts I don’t think it would have as much as a damaging effect. Plus the impact can vary by person, how often they have used weed, the strength of it and how often it has been since they have gotten high, among other things.

Now things make much more sense.

Weed is bad when it's abused & MIS used ! .

Also just because its a less harmful drug people still seem to think it's okay to smoke their brains out & get stoned .

Firstly Marijuana is NOT meant to be smoked ! . It's unhealthy for the brain and causes so many side effects.

For herbal and medical reasons it's meant to be boiled to either drink or bathe in .
And the cannabis oil can be used to rub on your body .

So I have ho problem with weed when it's used the right way for medical or health reasons.

But I do however hate when it's stinking out streets as it's smoked in tree quantities!! .
It smells like toxic waste .


I've never considered smoking it & never will .

It should only be legalised in the right form & NOT for cigarettes to get people high.

Well like any drug people get addicted and it could lead to them taking more dangerous drugs,and they probably already do so.

But I would say the average weed smoker only takes that & maybe tobacco

And I think most of us have seen people we know smoke it , I always think " oh another pot head" .

I never forget the first time me and my pals tried a bong. I felt so spaced out, this is basically how we felt afterwards

But would you say it is any worse than alcohol GoldHeart? Yes Weed can be particularly bad when it is abused and it’s side effects again can be particularly worrying (things like paranoia etc.) but so can alcohol which doesn’t even have any medicinal purposes whatsoever.

I agree that the smell can be particularly off putting for people who live a cleaner lifestyle so the potential increase in stuff like second hand smoke could be a lot worse. I would also agree that if it were to be legalised it needs to be regulated (similar to Holland).

I disagree however that it could lead to taking other drugs. Most weed smokers I knew only either smoked cigarettes or weed. Some didn’t even drink they much preferred a joint as it was more relaxing. Now I’m not saying that everyone is like that but I find that using weed and it leading to worser drugs as a bit of a myth tbh.

I tend to think this more about people who are drunk and just shouting about down the streets. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t want to come across as a boring bastard saying that but I find those sort of people a lot worse than stoners. I’ve encountered a lot of people that have been stoned and they have never raised an issue with me or anything like that. They have always been very chilled and non aggressive.

But I do respect your opinion on the matter GoldHeart.
