What made you curious, if not stories from losers who enjoyed it?
perhaps hearing about the effects of the drug? Oh, and not from dumbasses on the road either, you can hear simply on tv or even in the classroom about the effects of marijuana, and it intrigued me to try. Of course, that someone could develop an opinion for themself without being forced to by a bunch of loosers seems completely lost on you, but either way....
Magnotta wrote: First time I tried was at a concert.
Yeah, a concert, really sounds like an experiment, no friends or pressure there at all...
hmmm, did I say "I had no friends around"? Hmmmm, I can't seem to find that part. And no, there was no pressure, as I didn't have people around going "hey, want to try this?" or anything. It was there, I was curious, so I tried, my own choice. Did I have any obligation to do it in order to fit in? None whatsoever as there were plenty of people who didn't and got treated just the same.

Again, with your friends.
and again I wasn't pressured. As well, there were plenty of people who
would hang out with us that didn't get high. Were they treated any different? No, we treated them the same, and never pushed them to try. Some of them had issues with the idea of it having to be smoked, and so we respected that and just let it be.
Magnotta wrote: As for depressing loosers looking for a way out, me and my buddies made it a point to NOT smoke if we were feeling sad or depressed or anything as to avoid the situation where people use drugs as an escape.
Sure you did. I bet it was your daily goal.
Yes, because all day all I could ever think about was "weed, weed, weed"
, seriously, think about what you actually say.
Magnotta wrote: Most of us played intruments, so sometimes we'd get high and jam, ya know, just to see what we could come up with, and we recorded it a few times and actually came up with some pretty interesting music.
If it was as good as the Beatles, keep it up. If not, I don't care.
I don't really care if you wouldn't have liked the music me made, and chances are you don't like the music I listen to now. As such, that point is invalid, as there are people out there who don't like the Beatles(they're just outnumbered by a greater majority that do lol)
Magnotta wrote: In the end, we got high, it was the same as when families get togther on holidays and drink.
If it was the same, you probably would have drank instead. It's cheaper and legal.
Cheaper? Wtf are you talking about? Have you not gone down to your liquor store recently? For a group of people, getting a bit or marijuana is a lot cheaper than getting a few bottles or 2 cases of beer. That's not to say we couldn't afford it, and sometimes we did drink(when there's less people, and could therefore just get one case), but for the most part, cheaper isn't a word you should use when comparing alcohol to marijuana.
Magnotta wrote: Did we injure our lungs? sure, a bit of course, but it's not like smokers who smoke at leaast half a pack of cigrarette's a day, everyday, usually more than half a pack.
You didn't injure your lungs as much as a life-long coal miner either, but you still did.
I know we still did, I didn't deny it. At least though by only smoking in someones basement we weren't out and about hurtting other people's lungs. But either way, I didn't deny we hirt our lungs, so your point there was?
Magnotta wrote: Did we get addicted? no, of course not since it was marijuana.
You clearly know nothing about what addiction is.
, ok then, please enlighten me about how addicted I am/was, and how we were complete junkies.After all, you seem to know people better than they know themselves, so please enlighten us all.
Magnotta wrote: I mean, there were times when I'd get high everyday of the week, and then not get high for a month, and it was nothing, like I never even noticed a change.
Sure you did.
As per above, please tell me how I felt. I'd really like to know what my own feelings are. Now if only we all had your amazing jedi abilities to read minds and sense fellings. The force is with you young Skywalker
Magnotta wrote: Did we suddenly start becomming outcasts in society? uhh no.
No, because you already said all your friends did it too. Had you been alone, the situation would have been different.
Ok, then on the flipside, why were all those who didn't smoke up treated equally? Maybe, just maybe, it was because people can tolerate eachother and not everyone is as closed minded as the person I'm replying to here. Heck, I once admitted at a Christian convention that I'm an atheist. Want to know how many people cared? None. And when it comes to a situation of being an outcast, the convention situation has a lot more potential to bring about negative reactions than a few kid's getting high, and yet there were none. Perhaps it's because in this day and age people are not as closed minded to completely shun those different. Oh, and as something that may strike you as odd, a large number of those people at that Christian convention also smoked pot. Go figure, eh?(*btw, for anyone wondering what I was doing at a Christian convention despiet being an atheist, let me put it this way: the convention was in Vancouver, and I was asked by the youth group at my parents church to come along, all I had to do was help fundraise a few times, and the trip was free, so essentially it was for a completely free trip to Vancouver.)
Magnotta wrote: Did we suddenly start doing really bad in school(which is often a claim)? No, in fact one of my friends who'd get high with us graduated with one of the highest averages in our school,
So he was lucky. Pot does make people do worse in school, this is one fact I am sure of.
Sure it does, it makes a lot of people do bad in school. And you know what, I've seen instances of it happening, happy now? The whole point was to show that not everyone does, as you so like to assume.
Magnotta wrote: and 2 of the guys went to a seperate school where only "gifted" kids are allowed to go, and both graduated with extremely high averages.
yes, gifted, as in a school for children that have a high IQ, as a place where they can learn at a faster pace with harder work.
Magnotta wrote: As well, we are not an isolated incident either, and most people I've came across and talked to were/are very similar to how we were.
You mean losers?
Yes yes, complete losers
, if it's all you want to believe, go ahead, not my problem, as you live across the country from me pretty much. In my school alone however I knew of 3 teachers who smoke marijuana, and about 4 more where the at the very least did so in their youth, so I hope you feel comfortable knowing that in the future(or possibly present) your children may/will end up getting taught by at leats 1 teacher who smokes/has smoked marijuana. Please make sure to tell him/her to call their teacher a looser and ignore everything they say, and be completely ignorant of everything they are taught, as doing anything otherwise would be hyprocritical. As well, since you hinted that liked the Beatles, please go now and burn all your old Beatles records(or cassettes or cd's), especially that good old Sgt.Peppers album, as to ever listen to those again would be to listen to the music of complete loosers. I'm sure with that in mind you believe John Lennon deserved to be shot, as how could anyone who does drugs ever do something competent with their life
Again, I see no poin in all that.
Glad you see no point in anything, however then why did you ask in the first place why I tried marijuana? Thank you though, you lack of having any point to all this effectively wasted both our time, and your complete ignorance to absolutely anything and everything has made me quite a bit more cynical now. I'm sure though the reason you see no point at all though however is because you were hoping that everything I wrote would be a complete mess, as to prove your point, and so the fact that I can make a sentence angers you. But hey, whatever floats your boat.
