I am a long-time closeted cannabis user and I am looking forward to the legalization of pot next summer. But until then, my question has to do with my rights as a home owner and a pot smoker versus the rights of my neighbour to not smell said marijuana. Now, I don’t spend the whole day out there smoking, just one joint here or there. Yesterday afternoon, they smelled my J and proceeded to speak loudly to each other within earshot of me as to how rude this is. Is it rude Dave? Am I allowed to indulge in a smoke in my own yard? Legalization is going to change how much smoke you smell walking down the street, I think it’s already changed. Whether we want it or not it’s coming … stinky smoke and all. Who’s got the right though?
Once it becomes legal weed smoke will be flowing through the air. I believe that over the next few decades that frowned upon look will slowly go away and people wont be so rude when they smell it. You think I like inhaling and smelling your cigarette smell while im trying to enjoy myself?? Hell NO!! But I don’t say what i’m feeling when people smoke. No because its legal you have your own right to do whatever you like. Just like me.
When you think about it, weed is just like alcohol in terms of how it was illegal for so long and then it became legal and the industry absolutely blew up! Brewers and producers have produced good product. Is that what it will be like? Will there be a Molson Canadian Weed? Heiniken Marijuana?
Funny to think that it can happen. Why would it be any different?? It can be the evolution of what we can expect in the next 100 years.

Let’s start with what you probably already know: Alcohol is a depressant, but in low doses it causes emotional release and lowers inhibitions. Marijuana is also known for its relaxing qualities, but can produce very different results depending on how much and what strain of it you smoke. So what happens when you mix them together?
Personally I have found that it’s not the most fun thing to do. With both being a laid back depressant you would think that doing them together would be end of life.
Everyone reacts to both alcohol and marijuana differently. It all comes down to how your body will handle both. Myself on one hand can handle my booze and when I do drink I have a fun time and never think of depressing things unless someone brings it up to me. However I also handle weed very well too. So when I mix the two I don’t feel the “usual side effects.”
I have friends who I have seen that cannot cope with it well. I remember when I was younger I was the same way.
At first I would be so drunk and would be having a great time. Then all of a sudden I would smoke a joint with someone and that would be the end of my night. I would start coughing and then the almighty no no would happen I would get the “SPINS.”
If you went to high school parties and got stoned while you were drunk you remember this feeling. You would zone out for a while, then the room would start to spin and feel like your standing on water. Then the best way to get rid of the spins would be to sit still, close your eyes which eventually make you go to sleep.
However before falling a sleep the dizziness would catch up to you and then the feeling would go straight to your stomach. Then all of sudden you gag……..PUKE!!!!!!
That’s right. This article here is to warn you not to mix the both together if you’re a beginner or a someone who doesn’t do smoke much. Save yourself a night of being wrapped around a toilet.
If you’re a season vet at both then your like me and have nothing to worry about.
Often the question comes up. Can Marijuana enhance your level of play on the court, field, ice etc. The answer is really up to you. How is your mind going to handle Cannabis in the brain and soul when you’re playing at fast pace and trying to think about your next play.
When I was 19 I was a pretty good soccer player. Don’t mean to brag but I was pretty damn good. Never in all my years of playing at that time did I think I was smoke a joint or get high before a game. Until one day when I was at home and I was about to leave for my game. I found a joint I had in my car and just lit it up. It was a really nice strain. Cannot remember what it was. Anyways I got to the game 15 mins before the start. I warmed up on the field and realized that I was baked out of my trees!
The whistle blew and the game was under way. Now at first everything was a little overwhelming but after 5 minutes I adjusted to it. I then got confident and asked for the ball. I was thinking about plays 2 steps before and it made me a threat. I was conducting passes and doing things ive never even thought of. I guess that confidence was there and I had an attitude like I didn’t care what anyone was going to think and if I failed then who cares. I played a fantastic game, one of my best ever.
I guess if you smoke it and then get all paranoid or start to think about the worst case scenario then it might not be great for you. Its all how you let the drug take over. However I will say I did do it before a few more games and the same effect was not there. So I haven’t done it since. I did however do it a couple years ago and it was not a great idea. I was slow and confused and not in the best state of mind.
For some, that creativity will stay with them. There has been rumours that NBA basketball players have been known to do it and that they were creative once smoking weed before the game.
I think maybe a sativa would help. Giving you more energy and helping you be more creative would help while your in a game. However I also think that when your younger it is easier to smoke and still have all that energy to play a full game without coughing your lungs out.
Ricky Williams was a running back for the Miami Dolphins who openly smoked weed and eventually was unable to play in the NFL. The National Football Association is very strict with there laws on drugs with the players.
If it helps you and continues to help you then by all means go on and smoke up and play your heart out. If you notice your game is going downhill and you look like me trying to solve a word puzzel in the newspaper then i would stop.
