The Bible says more about not drinking in excess than it does about not smoking pot, as it says nothing about the latter.

Ephesians 5:18: Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

Yes, but still frowned upon by people of actual intellect and decency

Gotten trashed recently?

Yes, but only to get trashed never like a casual glass of wine or something
I haven't gotten trashed in about a week.  I don't see the relevance, alcohol use is socially acceptable

You haven't gotten trashed in..."About a week?"  And you're using that as proof that you're not a drunk?

As far as socially acceptable, like it or not you are under the legal drinking age.  No one may turn you in (I certainly wouldn't: let he who didn't drank underage cast the first stone) but that doesn't make what you do any less illegal than smoking a joint.

I have much more respect for someone who smokes a joint every now and then than someone who gets "trashed" every weekend like a frat boy idiot who the defends his actions with nonexistant bible verses.

In the sense that people are mostly no longer ashamed/afraid to admit it, yes.

Yeah, remember at the 2004 Democratic presidential debate, when they were jumping over each other to admit that they'd smoked pot? Good times.

Alcohol /= pot

There is no way around it, one is accepted by the masses for thousands of years and one is a narcotic for idiots to use

Uhh people have been using marijuana for more than 8,000 years now........

Yes, among most of my friends, though it's not acceptable to me.  I would leave very quickly if someone started smoking it in front of me.

Why?

Because I don't want to smell like it or be seen around it.

As Al said it depends where you are or bist.

Ive done it probably a few dozen times- some fun and some uncomfortable. The alcohol v pot debate is rather silly, imo. I've abused alcohol in my life and have known other people who have been potheads.  Any drink or drug can get the better of you and especially if you have underlying issues which that substance helps subside/delay/not confront.  I don't see a moral high ground here.

Pot is immoral, drinking is not.  The Bible agrees with me so honestly whether you don't agree with me phases me little.  Jesus turned water into wine, not grass into hemp

The Bible warns against drunkenness several times.

But it would hardly come as a surprise that you pick and choose which parts of the Bible are relevant.  Sort of like you do with the law.

You must not be aware of my disgust and hate tobacco and the industry that pedals it. As far as I am concerned you can shut all the Tobacco factories down and convert the farms that produce it to a more beneficial crop. I am also get sick of these died in the wool North Carolinians who wine about the decline of Tobacco to me.  I say thank god. Now those resources can be put to better use.

Actually.. my mother lives with severe chronic pain due to a myriad of medical problems and has been prescribed Ultram, Vicodin, and Tylox at various times... all to no effect, other than that they put her to sleep.. and the Ultram doesn't really do anything for her.

But if she smokes weed, the pain goes away.

To call her an idiot for that is ignorant and bullheaded at best.

And to think that 5 years ago I would've agreed with DWTL.  I guess watching your own mother sobbing in pain get relief changes a guy's mind.

And for the record:  I've never smoked weed in my life.
