Ill be the one to say it-Pot makes you stupid
Have you ever really associated with someone that does it a lot?
I'd open every window in that job and make enemies. I'm the employer-you turds have x days to plumb your rough or your all On the street!
All I need is some moron with a sawzall to slip and hurt himself or others. Our job is seriously dangerous enough hanging on ladders removing cast in huge pieces.

Give me a pothead over a drunk any day of the week.

I don't allow cigarette smoking on the job site, either. Way too distracting.

the drunks are really MUCH worse than the pot heads... at least they appear to be at this point in time....

I dont know if any studies have been done about smoking pot while you are pregnant with children,,,, maybe they should do some to see how the next generation of pot children will turn out....


I have met and known a lot of " pre-natal alcohol babies" that have all grown up and most dont have the brains god gave a goat.. I have had a number of them work for me too......

These poor people were born with an addiction to booze thanks to their mothers ... and most really cant do much else but manual labor for their whole lives and once they taste that first beer its all down hill for them too..

They look and appear normal like everyone else but once you meet the parents and their siblings it pretty much all becomes clear that they were born swimming in alcohol ..........:eek::blink:





Now we also got a whole generation of grown up "crack-babies" running around places like Ferguson Missouri screaming about their civil rights and how mean the police are to them..... wait another 25 years and its gonna get really weird out there once they have a litter of babies.....


I will stick to my pvc glue.....and a nice muggy crawl space to get high on...

THC is harmless to the body and to fetuses. Smoking it--smoking anything--will hurt your lungs, which is why I don't smoke it.

Some personalities can't handle the self-awareness that comes with use. Those people are the ones inclined to drink in order to blot out what miserable _ucks they are.

OD'ing on pot will sure enough show you where your heads at. When it became legal, I ate a whole brownie and then went to the grocery store. It hit me while looking at the oranges. Don't ya know, everyone who I didn't want to see at that moment showed up. I took an orange and started to eat it, forgetting to a) peel it and b) buy it. The story gets better, but I got to go to work.

Pot will overtake booze as America's favorite escape.

I have probably a dozen or so small to medium grow ops that are customers of mine. My deal with them is as long as they pay there bills in a timely manner they can grow whatever they want without me talking about it. I started with one and they passed my name around as a "he's cool" plumber. So now I get all the work out of the local growers. Mostly decent people just want to be left under the radar. I don't however mess with there irrigation but have offered advice while I'm there fixing something else.

Nope. The thc from the blunt contains thc. The smoke that's exhaled probably contains less.

Whatever. Second hand anything is rude. On runs, the smokers of tobacco and/or weed are off to the side. Hard to imagine hard core riders being aware of it, but yeah. Burning fossil fuel fumes is the exception..........

Not Plumber-That must have been one fun grocery store stop.
I am not sure if it was one of your first times, but eating it is very different from smoking it. For one thing it does take a longer period of time to hit you. Also, a completely different type of high. Depending on what the amount was in the brownie, along with whether it was the pot of the last 20 years or not, plays a big role in the intensity. The pot of today has been so genetically perfected that the THC content of pot 30 years ago was less than 10%. These days it is in the 20-30% range ! I am a child of the 60's, the pot back then came in varying strengths. You had to almost smoke an entire joint yourself sometimes to get really wasted (sorry, just had to say it). Today, you take about three hits off a joint and you are baked (sorry again). Also, there is no OD'ing on pot. If you look at the CDC deaths from all substances, you will find pot at the end of the list, with a big Zero ! No one has ever died from a direct cause of ingesting pot. What their own personalities and behaviors exist are what determines what happens to them, good or bad. I have not smoked pot for at least 10 years. That still was a once or twice a year type thing. When you are a grandpa, you don't want to be smoking pot. I would much rather have a generation of pot smokers , than alcohol drinkers. Just look at all the alcohol related deaths from drunk driving alone, or all the diseases caused from excessive drinking, or cigarette smoking diseases ? Neither of those completely legal "drugs" have any medical benefit. In fact they absolute cause serious health issues including fatality. Yet, in a large city you can find a liquor store or bar just about on every corner !! With just the independent research that is done, it has found many significant medical benefits for pot. Can you imagine what the government has discovered ? Yet, because our government is owned and operated by big business and the rich, why do you think pot is still for the most part illegal, at least federally. Can you imagine the money wasted on the war on pot !!!! Instead of developing it for helping people. Alcohol and tobacco companies would have a serious decrease in their bottom lines ! Sorry guys, got way off track, this is a plumbing forum. Just sick and tired of the BS that happens in this country. How big business and the rich have such preferential lives. In my state, I have to compete with utility companies that installs boilers, (like hacks) the cost is always twice as much as any other private contractor, and they give the people a 10 year interest free period to pay for it, on their monthly bill !! PHCC went to court for what had to be decade, considering in my state a company that engages in a trade that requires a license, a person with that active license has to own 10% of that entity ! They went to court stating that it does not require a licensed plumber to install the boiler if the domestic water has not been cut on the house side of the water shut off !!! Well it still requires a back flow prevention device. As far as I know "that" requires a licensed plumber. Bet you can't guess who won ?

My son-in-law got booted out of the Corps for one joint while in Thighland. Yet, the Marines have a long standing tradition of alcohol poisoning on each and every leave.

Hey, we've known our leaders aren't.

Instead of Mercedes, it's Atcharia, Chimlin, Inthurat, Kantima, Apshorn, Malisa...
Can I still just call them Mercedes? I'm afraid I would lose motivation to support their college bound efforts if I had to try to pronounce those names while a little tipsy. Heck, Mercedes already has too many syllables.
