Perhaps we can settle on them being different changes, but can we agree that drinking alcohol at a hotel/convention bar is a different demeanor than the actual example/experience I gave: having a professional dinner at someone's house? I believe one's own intent to regulate their behavior is different between the two. In my experience, the light alcohol drinker fairs better at that, than the pot smoker.

The rest of the discussion on what will happen in the future of deregulation is all speculative, so no point in repeating my respective point of view.

Re: Blunt offerings in the marina

I predict that 100 years from now there will be many more medicinal uses of cannabis and its use socially will be no big deal, about as big a deal has having a cup of coffee. Oh wait, the latter is already the case for the vast majority of people under 40.

Maybe future generations will look back and wonder why it was socially acceptable to down 3 glass of chardonnay and an Ambien every night.

Hmm, that's only one profile. There are others. When I took my family to Costa Rica apparently there's a profile that the ganja dealers down there have for certain American tourists. Apparently frequent users are soccer dad looking tourists who would have gone to high school in the 70s. Whenever the rest of the family wandered away from me in town squares some Rastafarian looking guys would come up to me and whisper quietly, "Hey Mon, would you like some ganja?" My daughter would come over and ask why these cool looking guys were talking to her very uncool dad. I told her that they were offering to serve as our tour guide and show us interesting places.
I did not have dreadlocks and my beard was trimmed suitable for appearance in corporate meetings.

Re: Blunt offerings in the marina

Ugh. So much useless debate. I'll answer the initial question posed: I sail in Southern California and I have never even once been offered a hit. I don't look very 'conservative', so I don't know whether my appearance is a factor (shaved head, goatee).
I live in Nevada, boat there some, too. So, my anecdote is that, in the two states where recreational marijuana purchase is legal, NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

It's not a crutch. Like sailing, billiards, watching TV, and sex, getting a buzz is something fun to do. If you don't like sailing, don't go. If you don't like having a drink, or smoking a blunt, take a pass.

I'm an employer in Tennessee who just fired two employees for smoking pot at work. Don't smoke pot at work; don't have sex in public; don't try to sail on Interstate 40. I 'm not inclined to support the criminalization of an activity just because some people do it inappropriately.

Re: Blunt offerings in the marina

I think this must vary massively by region. Some countries have a war on drugs, some countries permit employers to perform random drug tests on employees, other countries weed is legal or at least decriminalised and the Constitution protects employees from random drug testing. I assume this must result in very different attitudes towards cannabis both in terms of personal use and willingness to talk openly about it.

Nearly any marina in Ontario that has a fire pit, one could expect a joint to come out with the guitars and I think it would almost be perceived as impolite if some one were to sit around a fire and not offer to share. Nobody has to smoke any, I don't, but it's just a question of good manners to offer, isn't it?

Two Toronto cops apparently suffered from hallucinations after eating cannabis brownies they stole during a raid. Currently on CBC

Re: Blunt offerings in the marina

I'm not a stoner. But, one of things I said before getting into sailing was that I was going to sail out into international water, get naked and smoke dope.

But then I learned that it was all that practical and that you can lose you boat over it, or worst depending on where you are.

I've been in almost every marina of any size in the Great Lakes over the last 30 years and have been offered a joint once. You must run with a different crowd
