as someone who may have, on occasion, calmed nerves with a joint....even I think you're an idiot coz there ARE so many OTHER ways. Christ, I'd even go so far to say you have a drug problem, mate. YDI x

Probably that it would calm his nerves, just a toss up. And as for OP, I would recommend taking things of that nature a little more seriously. Besides, nerves can be a good thing when it comes to presentation.

The OP was thinking they were just going to smoke enough to calm down. There are a lot of people out there that smoke enough to be able to do so without getting blazed. Even if the consequences were pretty severe the OP did express that it was a mistake on his part.

At least you realize you're a bleeding idiot... I mean I have no issues with lighting up now and then but how could you think it's a good idea to get baked before going somewhere you're gonna be surrounded by law enforcement..?

It is a problem, even if it is in a place like Colorado or Washington. I live in Colorado, and the law is that weed is legal only in a private home area. Just like alcohol, one with any sense wouldn't show up somewhere important drunk. And, how do you think he got there? He could have driven while under the influence, which is a huge problem in the US.

We'll since it's still illegal in most states and showing up hot for anything in a drug test terminates your chance of employment for some companies, yeah, it's safe to assume you can't be one. Not saying some people can't function, but OP isn't helping with getting people okay with legalization.

@48 So your logic is, because someone needs help with a problem that they don't have means to fix themselves, they don't deserve help? It is A vastly different situation, to break a destructive cycle with help from outside, than alone from inside. I don't believe it's as simple as "I need money. 'Okay, here's your cheque, sir'" The system can be improved for sure, but it's my understanding that social programs do a lot more good than some people corrupting the system to support bad habits, could ever do. If you don't like it there's always other countries, with different policies.

71 - I'm assuming you meant to reply to me, despite your incorrect number. My issue with this is that a "drug problem" is a problem brought on by that person themselves. They CHOSE to try drugs. My issue is not with welfare itself. No one chooses to make less money than needed to survive. I bet if all those druggies taking welfare money STOPPED FUCKING DOING DRUGS, they'd be able to afford more essentials, and even get a job. I've met far too many people using welfare to support their habit of buying drugs and not working. I can't tell you how many people have approached me outside of a gas station and asked if they could use their food stamps to buy my stuff, in exchange for money (guess what for??) If I have to pass a drug test to get a job to give MY money to the welfare system, you best fucking believe I demand that those people be held to the same standards.

I think the main thing is that OP has a job that requires his mind to be clear so he can think quickly. Weed doesn't help that. OP is also surrounded by law enforcement officials in a courthouse so unless it is legal where they are it was a bad move.

I agree, 49. I have to let someone WATCH me piss into a cup for a drug test so I can EARN my government pay check, and no one bitches about violations of my privacy. I don't think it's too much to ask of people to prove they won't be wasting other people's money on something that will destroy them to get a free hand out.

What about prescription medication? Someone could have just as easily taken a little too much of their prescribed Xanax and ended up slurring like a drunken idiot. Yet, a lot if people wouldn't be able to even do this without some kind of anxiety medication. I do agree that it was a poor choice on his part, but not all mind altering substances are bad or should never be taken.
