Note that this isn't a post about asking for pros and cons or asking for people to tell me to say no or to go on ahead, but something related to the mental process I have.
So I was thinking about marijuana and philosophy a few days ago, and I realized that I didn't know why I don't use it and never have. All the reasons I can imagine either way, not really standing up to anything if I put it to the test. I'm 8 months away from being able to unload a magazine full of AR15 rounds down a gun range if I wanted to, I can and do drive a 1.5 tonne car where I want to go, I'm white, know rights about police and appear relatively rich, I am quite confident that police aren't in the mood to do anything (and it's 8 months away from Canadian legalization) (not that I am racist, I am commenting on the police's tendency to be racist and only enforce the laws against aboriginals and non white people), and I am perfectly fine with consuming sometimes surprisingly large amounts of caffeine and am content when Catholic teenagers drink moderate amounts of wine of their own volition. I don't believe morally you are bound to obey laws, being an anarchist, I don't have religious beliefs that make it a bad thing to use it, or beliefs at all in terms of religion. In moderate use in safe situations, I face nearly zero danger from anything, almost everything else I do like walk up and down my own staircase and drive to school each day is much more risky statistically.
So why don't I feel like it's probably a good thing to do and would be really adverse to it if offered?
