    On a jaunt round Cannock Chase, a couple of chaps were just finishing a spliff before heading down one of the steeper descents there (from the seat at the highest point, for thems that know The Monkey Trail & Follow the Dog.

    When I was on London Fields getting ready for the Dun Run, I almost floated away on the smoke as it wafted over me!!
    Even Plod was breathing in deeply to help them get to the end of another gruelling shift :laugh:

    It seems to getting accepted as "the normal" thing to do these days, almost everyone you talk to either smokes it or knows someone who smokes it. As above, what people do in the privacy of their own homes is their business but smoking weed in public or whilst in control of a vehicle is imo totally unacceptable. Why should we non smokers of the weed be forced to inhale the dregs of the stoners smoke, i for one find the smell of it revolting.

    I sincerely hope not!!
    I have personally seen the side effects of misuse of cannabis and its various derivatives, the paranoia caused by prolonged use can be life changing and very debilitating.

    Yup .... boils down to the fact that you have a choice .... but whichever you choose, don't knock those who choose differently

    Had a couple of guys walking in front of me once up the Railway Path smoking weed. The light breeze blew it in my direction and I felt like I was riding along an aircraft con trail. Funny how Iong it took for me to get past them....:rolleyes:.

    I have nothing against a decent spliff but fark me they are driving and driving around me as bad as drink driving and using a mobile IMO. I have been in the passenger seat wrecked as teenager no way would I want to drive. I recall sitting at the front of traffic lights asking each other how long had we been there and had they been through one phase already. And then couldn't stop laughing. Irresponsible I know but a one off. These people seem to be at it at 6.30am! It was 5 minute journey felt like I had been driven to the coast and back!
