  1. Businesses should fire anyone who doesn't perform up to standards, regardless of why. Your biases shine through too . Arguments about what? I maintain that smoking pot is not a real serious health or life altering issue. Again, YMMV. Just because you provided a few real life instances of a weed smoker experiencing some bad life events means little in this conversation.
  2. It's a derogatory term usually used by someone who has a disdain for those who smoke pot. You know that.
  3. Pothead! Haha. I bet you think Reefer Madness was spot on ! Pothead! Haha
  4. I dont advocate teens using weed, but adults should have the freedom to smoke, tincture, vape, whatever THC fix they want.
  5. So offer some examples of people that have had their lives destroyed by weed. Since you're so worldly. What are marijuana's long-term effects on the brain? a bit from the article: Imaging studies of marijuana’s impact on brain structure in humans have shown conflicting results. Some studies suggest regular marijuana use in adolescence is associated with altered connectivity and reduced volume of specific brain regions involved in a broad range of executive functions such as memory, learning, and impulse control compared to people who do not use.38,39 Other studies have not found significant structural differences between the brains of people who do and do not use the drug.40
  6. 2200 die each year in the US from drinking alcohol. You never heard of alcohol poisoning? In this case. Relatively yes. Care to opine otherwise? Not one person that I have ever known has suffered any long term ill effects from smoking weed. YMMV. THC overdose: Has first death from marijuana exposure been recorded in the United States? A coroner in Louisiana believes he may have investigated the first recorded case of a THC overdose.
  7. You do know that no one has ever died from overdosing on marijuana? Seems relatively safe to me. Your use of the term "idiots" is what got me questioning your knowledge of marijuana.
  8. I don't ascribe to the research that shows that usage causes issues with brain development. I know that there are studies done that indicate this, but there is also research that shows the impact isn't nearly as destructive as one would believe. Home Scientific American is the essential guide to the most awe-inspiring advances in science and technology, explaining how they change our understanding of the world and shape our lives. Adult using weed should be 100% legal.
  9. I have never even had one hit off of a joint, but what's your beef with using marijuana recreationally? Stuck in the 1940's are you? Man get some FACTUAL information about pot before you make this kind of ridiculous statement. Do you drink alcohol at all?
  10. The scrambles I have played in or heard about, the winning score is usually around 16 under! So it's pretty obvious the rules are not being followed. Use as many balls as you want!
  11. I never realIy delved too deeply into playing a certain brand or type of ball. Based it on price. But I switched from Pinnacle to Callaway about 6 weeks ago and my scores have gone down. Coincidence? I have no idea.

  13. So what if they do? It's their life. It's seems a tad patronizing to attempt to tell others what should be important in their lives. Do you ever get upset at anything in life? if you do, I might think it;s silly of you to get upset over that. I know the video dude is basically using golf to tell us to just relax and enjoy life (of which golf is a small part). It's a great philosophy.
  14. Disagree. For the amount of time and effort we put into the sport of golf, it is important to us. If it wasn't important, we wouldn't put that much emphasis on the sport. And what are the things that actually matter in life? The things that matter are the things that you love to do and that make you and others happy. Things that you enjoy are important. Golf is nowhere near "completely unimportant" relative to the other parts of life, but it's also not so important that one gets so stressed out that it's not fun.
  15. Finished up the regular season in my league last night.Shot a 40. Solid round. Made some nice par saving putts. Won 5.5/9 points.I finished 3rd out of 26 guys. Match record was 12-2-2.First round of playoffs next week. I am giving a stroke on 5 holes.
