Thanks 5.21 - I was thinking, is 'indugle' supposed to be 'indulge' and then though - must be, and then the first thing that came to mind for me was Chocolate of course!

In India, there is such thing is a "420 Goonda" in which a goonda is a very naughty person and 420 is the part of the penal code applying to such naughty person.

link to article on "anti-goonda squad" in the Hindustan Times. Indians apparently fight goondas like we fight terrorists or mafia folk.

I've never even smoked a cigarette, but I promised my sisters that if I manage to live long enough, I will smoke up on my 80th birthday and they're invited to the party! I might change bump that to my 70th if it's legalized by then.

For the record, my 80th birthday is over 4 decades away.

I do; when my group sees a night-time binge, that's almost always the reason! But I'm getting better at indulging without eating, just drinking diet soda instead. Maybe not the healthiest choice, but at least the weight's coming off!

is this seriously a poll on who uses an illegal drug? no wonder people want to keep the comments anonymous. this is soooo out of line with bettering one's health. smoking in general poses many health risks, but to then engage in activities such as driving or cycling, when others are on the raod or path with you, while under the influence of a controlled substance, is dangerous, too. i think anyone who is truly seeking a healthier lifestyle would not partake in using drugs.

just curious, is the word "indulge" spelled wrong due to a simple typo, or maybe due to the OP's use of drugs?

The phrase "World Wide Web" indicates that this is not just a site for Americans. I'm more offended that you think it is, than the content of the thread. There are many places where this substance is legal or has been recently reclassified. I agree that people must take responsibility when their motor skills and judgement may be affected, but I know based on logs that a lot of people here partake of alcohol or have been prescribed certain drugs, which can have an affect on both. I didn't see anyone leave similar comments on the "alcohol effect" thread. How many people died this weekend from pot smokers? How many died from alcohol drinkers?

If that's the case 12:52, half the people on PT are high as kites. Woohoo!

i do not want to get into a bickering match, but i don't think this is a site just for americans. i did not know that this drug was legal anywhere, so that is what led to my mistake. i still think that using drugs is not healthy. especially when they are mostly for recreational use. i am offering my opinion and not trying to preach to anyone.

I've indulged over the years, but I certainly can't lose any weight when I'm smoking regularly. I have a neighbor who smokes EVERY day and has lost 75 pounds over the last year.

to the jan. 2, 101pm poster...

um, did you read the alcohol related thread that you referenced? most of the responses are about alcohol's negative effects....maybe you're high?

To the 10:46am poster, I'm not the 1:01pm poster, but I think she was referring to, in the alcohol thread, there were no comments such as "I can't believe we're even discussing alcohol on here! Certainly no one who cares about their health would ever have a drink! It is morally wrong to drink, and is illegal in some places and for some people; therefore, we should not discuss it on this website!" No one makes that comment, because it is silly. However, people are happy to make the same comment, just substituting the word "marijuana" for "alcohol." Just because it is illegal to sell in the US, and in most places, to possess.

FYI, there are places in Canada where it is legal, and it is definitely legal in the Netherlands, and maybe some other places in Europe. And, in the city of Chicago, posession of up to some small amount (personal use) was decriminalized, i.e. you can get a ticket for posession, similar to a parking ticket, but you will not be charged with a crime. Having enough to sell, or the act of selling, is a different story. I don't know the laws in other areas, but, in any case, it is certainly not a universal opinion that marijuana is bad, and it is not universally illegal either.

Opium, Heroin

What constitutes a drug and what is taboo is an interesting societal question. Heroin for example is less addictive and less harmful than alcohol. But there is a taboo associated with it. It in far east, old people smoke opium to relieve the pain of being old. They don't over indulge (or indugle!).

some of the responders seem too angry to have smoked pot.

1:01 PM Poster here. Yes, 10:46 that's exactly what I meant. I contributed to the alcohol thread actually so some of the "negative effects" comments are mine... and I've never smoked marijuana.

I "indulged" for about 18 years and finally quit almost 10 years ago.

Quitting was the BEST thing I ever did for myself.

That stuff makes you lazy and really messes with your brain.
I had sort of a mini-breakdown and had to seek treatment for depression. At the time I didn't even tell the Dr I used, but I read a book that made me see what I had done to myself from all the smoking. I quit cold turkey the minute I realized what I had done.
Of course when you're using, it fools you into thinking that it motivates you and makes you all popular and funny and smart, but really it just makes you a fool.

And it's really sad how many things I don't remember from when I was younger... brain cells are a terrible thing to waste... on getting wasted.

1:33 poster...you could substitute "alcohol" for "pot" and still had all those unpleasant side effects and consequences. Yet alcohol is legal and pot is not. Seems kind of arbitrary and illogical, really. Legalize it, tax it, quality control it - it's been proven not to be "the gateway drug" it was once touted to be. Know what? I still won't smoke it, but I don't care if anyone else does.

And go Barack Obama for admitting to past cocaine use!
