You sound like you've had a sheltered upbringing. Cannabis is literally the safest drug in existence, much safer than alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine.

Hi, thanks for looking at my problem. Recently a friend of mine has become much more involved with my group of friends. Soon it's his birthday which im not attending appart from being out the country i have other issues with this guy.
The other day this guy was talking about having a "smoke" before going out. I asked my friend about this i was a little confused (cause he was involving the rest of the guys.) Turns out this guy has a stash of weed and is letting all my friends try it. This group is not normaly like this, we generaly have a booze up every month but never touched drugs. I feel like this guy has not only betrayed my trust but is betraying my friends too.
Bottom line i kind know what to do, im gonna distance myself from that guy but im worried if one of the others becomes addicted. One other new girl in the group has a drug using family as well as her. When i talked to them about this they made me feel like i was making a deal of nothing. She said it was all good and nothing to worrie about. I realy worrie about the others, they have been my friends for just under a decade now. I worrrie for them. Ive seen what it has done to other friends. I don't want to be appart of anything to do with this but i don't want my friends to do this either, im generaly liberal and would say live and let live but ive seen what this bs has done to others.
I supose what im asking is, Am i making a big deal out of nothing? Do i have a right to be worried? If the others get addicted should i help them or leave them?
I'm not speaking as a pothead or an up-himself neckbeard who doesn't like drinking or cigarettes - I love alcohol. Cannabis is really a safe drug: the only way to overdose on it is by smoking 200 or so joints a day (even then you'd only die from the carbon monoxide poisoning), it has causes zero (0) deaths as a direct result of taking the drug, and it isn't addictive or harmful to the body.
Before you dispute me on this, look it up for yourself.
If your main problem with it is that it's illegal then I can't change what you think about it. It's a class C drug and punishments for possessing small amounts of it aren't really serious if that means anything. But just because it's illegal it doesn't make it a harmful substance, and just because something's legal it doesn't make it safe.
Or maybe you just don't like your friends trying something new or them getting along with this other person you clearly don't like that much.
