Yes I get what your saying, i was just commenting on the 2 should not be compared. I know it impairs you, just not the same way alcohol does. Could be better or worse, again depending on the person. I dnt smoke anymore, been years. I do still drink. Whenever I get a chance to play call of duty, there is a big difference whem ive had 3-4 beers or 6-7, motor skills start going out the window. I know its a video game but my point is yes, it does affect you, your judgement, and reaction time, among other things. My buddies also used to have a few beera before softball game, and yup... We didnt win those games. So I do agree, just not on every aspect

I agree that guns and alcohol do not mix. They should both be treated with respect. If you choose to carry and or use/handle firearms in anyway...do it responsibly. Same goes for alcohol. I choose to drink, sometimes quite a bit. But never drive a car or shoot guns while I'm drinking. Use good judgement and you will never have a problem with either.

Default Grass & guns? No thank you.

I was always offered/expected to have a toke or two when I was going to high school and then later art school. Sometimes insistently by someone requiring my acceptance to validate their own use. I accepted mostly out of sociability. I don’t think it ever did anything for me except make me cough sometimes. I never bought any myself. It didn’t seem worth the trouble.

EXCEPT for once.

Years later I knew someone through work who was a connoisseur. He had various kinds in separate bags in a safety deposit box. Like fine wine, he was selective about what he smoked when and with whom. Some days after I had explained my experience with grass, he offered me a ‘Thai Stick’ before we walked home from work.

That was a MOST interesting experience.

There are many reasons one has to pay attention when walking down the street in Manhattan, but making sure one doesn’t fall over and slide down the sidewalk because the street is tilting way up behind them and on its end isn’t usually one of them.

I was using the parked cars, going from car, as hand holds. I didn’t trust my feet to stay on the ground. In the event I lost my footing, I didn’t want to fall, slide down the street, and eventually into the Hudson River. Believe me it felt like a real possibility. We were both quite amused, laughing hysterically actually. Me by the experience and him by watching me & surmising the ride I was on, both of us aware of its impossibility. Don’t ask me why the cars weren’t sliding, I don’t know.

This was just part of one joint. I never had to be so careful, before or since, of developing my own personal laws of physics that diverge from the standard & accepted.

Grass & guns? No thank you.
