    Re: Why did YOU start?

    Of course it started with "here try it" so I did. At first I didn't really feel a head change, but the third time I did it with my friend and we smoked out of an apple and it was wonderful, so I decided I liked it. Then after a month or so I started to notice a change in my sleeping pattern-it had actually helped me with my insomnia and I was able to expand my sleep time from an average of two hours a night to 9 and now it's kind of hard to wake up, haha. It's also helped me a bunch with anxiety and just the overall stress I've had to deal with for the past year. But I started because I plain liked it, and now the benefits are apparent.

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    When I was younger I used to sneak down to a local drive-in that had bands on the weekends. The bands would take a break and about half of the players would head for the railroad tracks behind the place to have a smoke. As this was around 1968,anyone over 10 could pretty much smoke anywhere they wanted. I couldn't figure out why a bunch of 20 year olds would sneak off to smoke?

    I walked the tracks to get home. One night I ran into a group of musicians as I was leaving. One of the guys from the neighborhood was back there with 'em and said something about "he's a cool kid" and motioned for me to come over.

    They asked me if I'd ever smoked weed and of course I said "Hell Yeah.",I wasn't going to have them thinking I was a wuss.

    I did a lot of coughing that night but the lightning bugs put on a helluva show on the walk home. I was ruined.

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    Medical reasons. Honest. I was totally against smoking, then I changed. Now I think pot is like the "cure all" for everything. Bad day? Smoke pot. Aches and pains? Smoke... Seriously, I've turned around in my thinking completely.

    I had brain surgery & my life went to hell when I started recovering... pains, getting sick, headaches, depression and a trillion & one other things. After being doped up on opiates and a million meds to counteract each other I tried MJ. Amazingly enough, after all my stubbornness, it worked! Go figure lmao. Anyway, that's my rhyme & reason. Now you couldn't convince me to trade it in for my old prescriptions.

    I smoke everyday, usually multiple times. It makes me a better person, mom, wife, friend. I love it!

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    I researched all I could about it - found that it was harmless and non addictive. Why wouldn't I try it?! I'll be smoking for the rest of my life.

    It sucks that the government, parents, educators and media are all so uninformed and/or comfortable lying to people about marijuana.

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    I grew up with my Dad smoking a lot.. He always told me that if I smoked cigs he would kick my ass.

    Sadly, I was forced to relocate very far away, so I never got to smoke with him. Hopefully someday our paths will cross and we can share a session.

    I was smoking before that with my friends though.. I smoked off and on, and started steadily smoking about 2 years ago. I smoke every day if I have it. If not, I don't have a problem not smoking.

    I have ADD, and Cannabis is the only thing that calms me down enough to concentrate on things.

    I love smoking, and I will smoke every day I can for the rest of my life.

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    My first time story:
    Me and about 5-6 of my friends decided we wanted to get baked. So my friend was sure from his research and asking people, that everyone needed like a gram each, so we bought like a quarter for like 5 people thinking we were all cool. Earlier that day we skipped one period and went downtown to buy a bong, was a nice sized, maybe 20 cm hight and a decent width. We were making a day out of the ordeal, we go out to this secluded place in the forest with benches and nice scenery etc. now let me say, the myth that the first time you smoke weed you don't get high.. is completely false. We are all taking nice hits from the bong, i think one person there had gotten high once before and was like our noob mentor. It was fun to see how everyone reacted differently to weed. One of my friends are one of those space cases who get really effected and look like there on acid. He ran on rocks and just stared into the bush, and other funny things. Also, we imagined that there was a bubble over his head and that we had full control over what the bubble did, e.g. had air, was over his head or not etc. and he legit could not breath when we told him there was no air in the bubble, until we told him it was off. I remember feeling really shaky and tons of laugh attacks. must have been very, very stoned. I think we planned the day that there was an all night movie marathon at the theaters starting at 12am, so we thought that was an appropriate event to go to, 9hours after getting really baked for the first time. i think 2 of us fell asleep after an hour, and everyone else went home from being too pooched ahah.
    And thats my first marijuana experience. pretty good one id say.

    You know what, ain't that the truth. And that's exactly the reason I thought that it was so bad... b/c people are so uninformed and comfortable lying about it, that I grew up believing those people that were lying to me. Why wouldn't I? I didn't know any better. I'm just glad I grew up, learned to think on my own & got a real education about things (by real I mean truth) & made my own decision (key point).

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    I used to smoke occasionally, Didn't really get going until my accident to my back in 01'. Since 06' I have been using it for pain control, and let me tell you, WHAT a difference it makes! I have degenerative joint and disc disease, arthritis, and am only 44 yrs young. I don't let it get me down.....smoking has helped ten fold compared to other medications with horrible side effects that can kill you. So thats why I started! Gonna start gettin my own started so I can provide for myself! Rock on!

    Re: Why did YOU start?

    I agree.....I think they should not class 420 as this big huge "gateway" drug....when lets face it, is a buncha hooey! Misinformation is whats holding us that are for it back! The WHOLE position of 420 has changed since it first appeared in the U.S. back in the late fortys and fiftys. Has anyone ever watched "Reefer Madness"? OMG what a crazy show! No one I ever knew went CRAZY smoking weed....they portrayed it as a scare tactic to make parents afraid of it. I believe thats where it started....

    Yeah I've actually been prescribed more medications by my doctors that should be considered gateway drugs lol My nuero even talked to me about putting me in rehab when I needed to be taken off of one of the meds I'd been on for years b/c of detox/w/drawel issues. Um... sounds like it might lead to more hardcore drugs to me! LOL I've gone w/o pot before & never been like "OMG, get me to my pot or I'm gonna start freaking out." I'm more like "Damnit, my head really hurts."
