How often do you encounter people who smoke a joint during a round? - Page 17

post #289 of 343
One of my good buddies who I play with regularly smokes a bowl or a g pen every round. Not only does it not bother me ... Most times I don't even notice.

Wow! Different world I live in. The last time I even smelled it was in the halls of the dorm in 1975.

Me too....call it 1980.

Of course, we don't live in Kalifornia! a2_wink.gif

I doubt I would recognize it even if it was going on, the drug thing was never something I cared to learn about.

I never encountered that during a round but as long as they were not doing it right next to me I wouldn't really care.


Rolling through a stop sign is illegal but you probably did that on the way to the course.

  I don't have a problem with it, as it do it myself, but some smokers have no tact or sense of subtlety.  I wouldn't blaze openly on a tee box with people I don't know, or aren't comfortable with it.  More often than not I have plenty of opportunities to take a small hit of a pinch hitter on the course without anyone knowing.  Which totally works for me.  Getting blasted out of my mind doesn't help with golf much. 

 

  Sometimes I wish the alcoholics who go out golfing would be more subtle as well.  The people I do know who smoke while golfing behave much better than the drunks.

 

 

 

 

I had the sh*t till it all got smoked, I took the promise until the vows got broke.

Jimmy Buffet concert in 2011.  It was around us, but not with us (I did once upon a time, but not for many years now).  To each his own.  a2_wink.gif

By the time I reached 16 my head was swimming and proceeded to get a quadruple 8 thanks a lot, I was so pissed I finished 7 over on those last three holes, shooting a good score is no easy feat either at my course 73.5 rate 139 slope. Just want to let anyone out there that thinks it's okay to just blaze away cause your playing partner you just met is an easy going guy and wont say anything is a very rude and lame thing to do.

Is a contact high when you actually get high off the 2nd hand smoke??? Or just feel high because of those around you??

 

If it's the first, I am skeptical, no way someone gets high when they are stood outside next to people smoking.

 

Sounds like you got pished off and just folded.

Not often enough.

Hay....man....that's a cool shot man....(cough).

 

Actually, I tried it once, but didn't inhale.   oops, wait a minute, somebody already used that line.   Same guy who said  "I never had sexual intercourse with that woman".

I would call the ranger and have the people kicked off the course. Sorry, I suffer enough from people smoking cigarettes on the course, or disgustingly spitting chewing tobacco on the greens, I don't need to get the munchies on the course.

Yeah.  It ain't that east to get high from second hand smoke, even indoors.  Outside, I don't care if the wind is blowing or not, you aren't going to get much actual smoke.

Have not seen anyone I am playing golf with smoking a joint since back in July of 1993.  Over 20 years ago.  I was paired with some guys in Vail Colorado while there on a business trip and 2 of the 3 guys were smoking. 

I don't doubt that some guys I know who play golf do smoke but I have never seen them doing it on the golf course. 

It will not be anyone riding in cart with me for sure.

Never happened to me yet, but if it did, I'd pull out my wallet and suggest a couple of bucks on the game !!   e2_whistling.gif

Every week in the league I'm in, man every time I talk about my league it sounds worse and worse. It annoys the crap out of me because I don't smoke, it's illegal, and they are slow as hell when they smoke. I have friends who smoke and that's all well and good if the want to do that in private/at home but in public just doesn't make sense.

I told the same exact story in this thread twice in a row but a year apart.  What the hell.  I knew the thread title looked familiar.

That's funny.

 

I am pretty sure I've done the same thing about ten times at least.
