drug discussions will probably almost always go off topic, that is why the last time it was brought up a thread was opened just to talk about drugs.. I guess everyone can just be directed there and discuss away.. Although everything that needed to be said was said so I would be surprised if anything extra can be added.

I do agree with many that have mentioned that the real story here isn't the pot but rather the two guys being jerks when told to go smoke discretely! I don't have any reason to think the OP was lying or making up stuff, he wanted to convey a certain part of the story and thus the title of the thread. The fact he left the stuff in what happened after is not relevant. In my opinion anyway.


This doesn't make any sense, either it's a thread about pot or it isn't. If the storyline here is guys being jerks why leave out the punch-line, one attacked a cop. That's about as jerky as you can get. What's worse ignoring a request to be discrete about your marijuana use or committing what is likely a felony.

My point is people will see what they want to see because they can't see past their beliefs be it pot or whatever.

Yesterday during a round with my grand daughter, and two other, new to us, young gentlemen (25-ish?) something came up after the 4th hole. The two young guys lit up a joint. When I saw (smelled) what

I'm completely sick of some of this "entitled" behavior.  Good for you and your granddaughter and your son-in-law and his brother!  It's frustrating how some people don't want others to infringe on th

So here's the thing that stumps me. If you're doing something illegal, or otherwise against the rules, isn't the #1 rule to never draw negative attention to yourself? If you're smoking illegally

To the OP it was a story about Pot and the guys being jerks and then getting what they deserve by spending the night in jail. The moral of his story was don't be a jerk if you were ever in this situation. To me pot wasn't really the story, and others can make up their own opinion of what the story is.. I'm not sure what part of my post didn't make sense, but hey, the guy can relay any part of the story he wishes and the fact that he left things out is not something we should dwell on. Calling him a liar is a bit much though in my opinion, (I'm not saying you did because I don't remember, I'm just saying in general) especially since there is nothing for him to gain by doing so. (Unless people think he is on an anti pot quest of some sort, which the OP doesn't seem like that to me)

And that isn't what I, or most people, call "pot".  Pot is the appellation for the recreational form of marijuana.  CBD enhanced cannabis is a specific hybrid for medical uses with raised therapeutic value and often with lowered or nonexistent psychoactive properties, and unlikely to be found in the typical pot shop in Colorado unless they specialize in offering medical marijuana.  You can't tell me that the push to legalize marijuana in Colorado was so that the average Joe could buy CBD.

Somehow I doubt whether you are the best source for information about what the typical pot shop in Colorado is like in any respect.  Regardless of whether you are talking about a medical dispensary OR a recreational dispensary.

The fact is that if someone wants to play golf high (which sounds like a dumb thing to do) they are far better off using edibles rather than smokeables or vapeables.  No stealth issues and the high reportedly lasts far longer (I've not used edibles to any great extent, so I do not know from personal experience) so it could easily last the whole round or be "refreshed" by eating another candy or whatever.

Weed on the golf course? What would it do to a golfer's reaction time?

The stoners will out run and react faster than the drinkers, IMO.

Reports that I've seen state that many of the edibles are extremely potent, some as much as some forms of mescaline or LSD were back in the day, although the high probably doesn't last as long.  By the way, what makes you think that I'd be any worse informed that you are?  As a past member of the flower/hippie/drug culture, I probably have more first hand experience than you do.

Not sure how true this is.  Maybe if they even realized that there was a reason to notice the need.

This is true.

I can see some stoner hearing someone yell "Fore," and then get hit in the head by a golf ball while he's trying to remember what "Fore" means.

Or suppose a bear attacks the foursome. Would the stoner say "Hey, dude..." right before the bear clawed him?

Don't forget the increased appetite - stopping cart girl every so often for junk food refill.

But think of the additional tips!!  If she is aware that she has a group of smokers on the course, it would behoove her to make a point of staying close by.

The aforementioned 20 somethings who insulted our Patch should be happy to dole out tips.   Maybe, just maybe, they were smoking bad stuff.   Instead of getting high and smiling at everyone going by, they attacked an innocent woman in a parking lot.    I tell you, that wasn't a good joint.

The real question is what would that do to pace of play... the PGA would have to do a whole lot more than a "while we're young" ad... they'd have to start marketing speed pills to counteract the problem :-D

A few years ago a friend of mine and I went to tee off and a gentleman asked if he could join us. On the second tee he asked if we objected to his smoking a joint. We said, "Yes," so he played on by himself.

Our rationale was that if someone we knew saw us with this guy, whether we were smoking or not, we would be guilty by association and therefore would be jeopardizing our reputations. Whether people like it or not, in most states possessing marijuana is a criminal offense.

In the case of this story, someone electing to light up with strangers present, shows a disrespect for the others. And, isn't golf supposed to be a a gentleman's game?

It was good of him to respect your wishes and what most would do.  I would have said, "it's a free country, just try to keep the smoke away from me" (I wish people would just eat the stuff instead of smoking it, that has to be not as unhealthy).  I have some libertarian views and am opposed to 'nanny state' laws.

Keeping this in prospective, smoking pot in Calif. is just a misdemeanor and the fine if cited is $100.  Kind of like jay-walking imo.  Being around someone else smoking, someone else you don't even know, that shouldn't affect your reputation.

At the time the gentleman asked us if he could "light up" on the course, both my friend and I were public school teachers, so you can see where we needed to be somewhat cautious.

I prefer to play with non-smokers be it a joint, cigar, or cigarette.   I don't have good lung and tend to cough when others smoke around me.  And it's not fun to pick up cigarette butts off of green.   Next time someone smokes in my group, I will use defreuter415's stance.   Non-smokers unite!

No, I doubt you have more experience - I went to college in the 70s.  Nuff said.  And nothing that went on back then has ANYTHING to do with what is happening NOW.  It is completely different in terms of both products available and technology for using them,  So no, having been around in the 70s or having part of the hippie/drug culture tells you nothing about what the deal is now.  Hence my statement.  But hey, maybe I am wrong.  Just how many modern CO pot dispensaries, medical OR recreational, have you been in, since you claim to know what the "typical pot shop" is like?

Your statement about edibles also makes no sense.  The issue is dosage, not potency.  People who have bad experiences usually have done stupid things -  like ignoring the dosage instructions. -wise Maureen Dowd's column about her experience with edibles is a classic example.  She ignored what the expert she had with her told her, did stupid things, dosage-wise, and then blamed the pot.

Personally I'm pro-pot but it's definitely wrong to use it in front of a minor in places where it's illegal and it's just rude the way they reacted when asked to stop. Too bad you can't get ticketed for being a jerk(I hate to see ppl get in trouble for pot)

This old fart was at Woodstock and went to college from 1969 - 1973 so I am not surprised by much.  That being said, I would enjoy playing golf with someone who is stoned the same amount I would enjoy playing with someone that drank a pint of scotch.  I do not smoke pot but I do enjoy a scotch and a cigar after my round - sometimes I will have 2 scotches.  I am not here to judge a person's method of intoxication but to voice my displeasure with people intoxicated on the course.  Whether it is pot or alcohol your senses and reflexes are impaired and I personally do not want you on the same course I am playing.   Some potheads become totally oblivious and disconnected and some drunks become loud and obnoxious, both conditions I can do without on the course.

If there was a club that banned golfing while impaired (GWI) I would join it if I could.  After a round, you can do whatever you want - it's your body.  And as far as the right to drink or smoke pot on a golf course, playing a round of a golf on a course is a privilege and not a right.  The course can set its own set of regulations and can enforce them since you are paying for the privilege to play there - you have the option not to.

As far as breaking the law in front of a minor, whether it is smoking pot where it is illegal or selling un-taxed moonshine, it is just an irresponsible and idiotic thing to do.
