If we frown upon people drinking specifically to get drunk, then we frown upon people smoking specifically to get high.  The two cannot be seperated.

Well, personally I don't know why anyone would drink if they didn't want some level of 'merryness', if that was the case all those 'I drink but don't get drunk' peeps would stick to softs.

Oh.  As long as it's Your opinion and You would not force Others to comply with Your opinion should You have the chance to do so - all is cool, ArMaP.
How could I enforce others to comply with any thing? I cannot even make the smokers around me stop smoking, even when they know that they are making my life worse than it should be.

You DID say You "had a problem" with the choices of Others to treat stress and so on.  Thus My question.  I was trying to find out what problem for YOU They were creating.
I said it that way because it was an answer to "the older generation has a problem" sentence, my answer shouldn't be understood as an isolated statement. :)

I did say "if You had a chance to..."  IF You had a chance to, would You force all People who regularly consume caffeine to cease?  If not, all is good.  [smile]

To be honest, I don't know what I would do, but I like to think that I wouldn't do it. :)

Hey what happened to your face? [avater]
 
Now, just maybe some people can drink something because they like the taste? I like to have a beer with Pizza and a glass of wine with a steak. When you get older you will understand. When I was your age I went out to party as often as I could. But maybe I will look into getting a bottle holder and bong for my walker. lol.
 
Ouch on the wierdos tasting grapes, maybe you have never had the good stuff. Come on over, we'll go bottle for bottle on the good stuff, I'll buy, see who is last standing......

Agreed, but we live in a world where tastes can be recreated without the alcoholic touch  :P

I wondered who'd be offended by that aha.. I'd apologise, but it's my personal perception.
I literally meant 'Those who dedicate'.... You know those pompous types that will frown upon you if you cannot tell which sort of wine your drinking without looking at the label lol.

I can honestly say without a doubt each an every wine I've tasted (Lets guess at about 10 different sorts), all taste vile in my opinion, like flat cider - I'm a larger bird myself.

Fatal Car Crashes Involving Pot Use Have Tripled in U.S., Study Finds
Researchers note that increase included men and women, and all age groups

TUESDAY, Feb. 4, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The legalization of marijuana is an idea that is gaining momentum in the United States, but there may be a dark side to pot becoming more commonplace, a new study suggests.

Fatal crashes involving marijuana use tripled during the previous decade, fueling some of the overall increase in drugged-driving traffic deaths, researchers from Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health report.

"Currently, one of nine drivers involved in fatal crashes would test positive for marijuana," said co-author Dr. Guohua Li, director of the Center for Injury Epidemiology and Prevention at Columbia. "If this trend continues, in five or six years non-alcohol drugs will overtake alcohol to become the most common substance involved in deaths related to impaired driving."

The research team drew its conclusions from crash statistics from six states that routinely perform toxicology tests on drivers involved in fatal car wrecks -- California, Hawaii, Illinois, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and West Virginia. The statistics included more than 23,500 drivers who died within one hour of a crash between 1999 and 2010.

Damn armature pot smokers, , just as bad as armature drunkards, , , , except it somewhat difficult to do any damage driving at 5 mph.   ;D

The legalization of pot is pretty inevitable.  There just needs to be an education of the public that it will be treated no different than alcohol or any other chemical that makes you a danger on the road to yourself and others.  Common sense.

I think it's good common sense that being either stoned or drunk is an issue with driving.  To defend otherwise is intellectually dishonest at the least, or you are personally vested in your own chemical issue.  And your links LOL, no vested interest in some of those, eh?

I don't know about the rest of yea but I don't want my airplane pilot stoned or drunk, neither do I want my taxi driver to be that way. I don't care how many reports are posted. come on. No heavy equipment or dangerous toys. Maybe if someone gets stoned everyday they get used to it but what about the once a month people. I have seen people so stoned they don't even know where they are. Do you really want them driving out there at 5mph and stopping at every 7-11.
