    I can't stand people who boast about smoking weed, like 15 year olds who think they're suddenly cooler and better than me because they know people who can buy weed for them and they smoke it. I have no problem really with people smoking weed, but it's when they brag about it and think they're really cool about it, just really annoys me. Anyone else share this view?

    It's just people who brag about it because they've had one spliff, like man up.

    As for weed it's not always about being cool, sometimes people just want to feel 'released' from daily stresses. As for uppers and other stuff it can be a fun experience, makes you feel good and free, also makes a change from usual binge drinking. Although a hell of a lot a people take it to the extreme and get stupid.

    I hate any kind of bragging or boasting.

    But weed should be legal, think of all the potential tax revenue.

    If it were legal 15 year olds would probably find it harder to get hold of than they currently do.

    The ones that are (being) outlawed have been/will be for a very good reason. I mean look what happened to Daniella Westbrook and Amy Winehouse.

    I detest the whole 'ooh I'm 14/15 and I've just had a joint, I'm so high, let's post Bob Marley videos/lyrics on facebook to show everyone how cool I am' culture. No problem whatsoever with people who smoke it, the vast majority of people who do it keep it to themselves/friends they smoke with rather than boast about it, which is the way it should be.

    I'd have been posting some utter tripe otherwise.

    OP - are your views on drugs, or are your views on boastful people?

    I don't have an issue with drugs. People that use them ought to know the effects of them, both positive and negative. Excluding seriously hard drugs (coke, heroin, meth), controlled substances aren't as dangerous as their reputation suggests.

    I'm firmly in the legalisation camp for a plethora of reasons. People who boast about being stoned don't bother me, because chances are they're far too stupid to procure and/or roll a good joint.

    Posted this in another similar thread.

    I don't actually understand why any drugs are illegal anyway.

    Surely the argument for allowing people to smoke or allowing people to drink alcohol is equally as valid for somebody wanting to smoke marijuana or snort cocaine?

    Besides, most of the "negatives" are a result of the fact that these drugs are illegal. For instance, if cocaine was legal, and was readily available at Tesco or Boots, then there would be testing agencies, it wouldn't be cut with all sorts of dodgy stuff, and ultimately much of the organised crime that revolves around this trade would die out.

    In fact it would open up an entirely new industry and create thousands of jobs in perhaps specialised drug-retailers, drug production companies, drug crop farming, and so on. Think about all the extra tax that would be generated by VAT on drug sales, too.

    The problem is that illegal drugs are stigmatised far more so than cigarettes or alcohol, especially class-A drugs, which are classified on no scientific basis whatsoever anyway.

    The fact that some potentially harmful and open-to-abuse drugs are legal (tobacco, alcohol) and others illegal (cocaine, heroin, LSD, ecstasy, marijuana, etc.) is absolutely preposterous from a purely rational perspective, and this is coming from somebody rarely ever drinks alcohol and has no intention of using any of tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, etc.

    Is your problem with drugs, or with people who brag?
