Had to respond to this topic because personally because although I am an upstanding responsible citizen of the world, and always try to leave a clean wake, Marijuana is my drug of choice. You don''t feel the effects of it in the morning, it''s mellow, and it is the only thing that gives relief for my occasional headaches.

On the the flip-side and I have thought about it, I don''t smoke it or eat it whilst sailing or on my boat because the risks outway the benefits. I''ll save the opportunity for shore and those who I''ll undoubtedly meet.

I''ve got a friend who cruised for several years who had an experience of being boarded just because he probably fit the profile of being a young single guy. Well they took swabs of different parts of the boat (headliner, cabinets, countertops, etc.) seeking residual evidence. He managed to not have an issue, but what a big bummer that would be if. No thank you.

i noticed alot of people said "get into politics" but really not many americans beleive that drugs should be legal, most think that they should stay illegal and just keep arresting thousands of people. If i run for president i will not get many votes.

You have to try before you can make such a generlization. I personally wouldn''t use what we call now illeagal drugs under any conditions but I see nothing that would distress me if you wanted to. Hell you can now if you don''t want to keep your boat go ahead...

Rum, beer, pot, drugs... we all know they impare one''s ability in one way or another. Most people I know drink, its a drug, it alters the mind! If you operate a boat while drinking or toking, you are in the wrong!
At anchor, its your business how you prefere to enjoy your sundown. I like mine with rum and a fat one.
oh yah, I wouldn''t risk my boat for it while traveling...Just ain''t worth it!!!!

Jeffamc:
Your original questions had to do with how the drug laws of other countries, and what the ramifications would be if drugs were found on your boat. I think you''ve received many good responses to your original questions from several of us.

Apparently that wasn''t enough for you, as you then tried to change the focus to one in which you argue for the legalization of certain narcotics. As pointed out, that''s a decission that only law-makers can make, and hopefully their decission is (or will be) made based on good science - not emotional rationalizations. Emotional arguments and subjective opinions may be interesting to discuss, but they usually wind up as a waste of time. I suggest - you stop wasting our time.

As an adult you can do whatever you like on your boat, but as an adult - be prepared to suffer the consequences of your actions.

~ Happy sails to you ~ _/) ~

One quick little infusion...

They searched me in Israel (with dogs). They searched me in Cyprus (with dogs). They searched me in Turkey (with the damn dogs). Bottom line: I still have my boat and have not seen the inside of a jail.

In Turkey they WILL seize your boat and you WILL go to jail.

Pass the ale; keep your joint. Preferrably on YOUR boat.

Stay Safe.

Well this was as alwasy a somewhat heated and polorized discusion. and many point are made. And I agree if you take the chance you''ll pay the price plain and simple. The only point I would like to make is to 928frenzy who quoted" I suggest you stop wasting our time" Friend you have a pair let me tell you. You have made this thread a personal soap box to air YOUR oppions no one made you continually reply to this forum that was your choice! And I hope I never do cross your bow becauce your nose is held so frigging high you couldn''t see where your headed.

Other than the original posted question, which seems stupid at best, I fail to see what the topic of illegal drugs has to do with the message board "Cruising". I could understand postings on this board related to legal, prescription medications.

Well if you have, like an ounce of pot up yer ass, you will be walking real funny and the coast guard might notice. it would be eaiser just to keep it in your boot or something, or a coffee can or put the bag of pot in a bag of chips.
