I don't smoke anything. Both are an increased cancer risk.

Pot just isn't really appealing to me for some reason. I've tried it, and I didn't think much of it. Cigarettes however, I quite like. No clue why. My brother lives in Amsterdam, and he's all into that pot thing. But me prefers smokes.

I think the legalization of pot in my state was a great thing. It's removing the criminal element and there was no zombie apocalypse as the conservatives in our state predicted.

Fuck smokes. I'm off of those. But I'll share a cone with ya 😁

I don't do either any more, but if I had to do one, it would be the one on the right.

Seriously I would never, ever smoke a cigarette again. It's shameful that I even started. I knew better than most people what could happen; I'd already spent a summer giving mice tumors by dosing them with hydrocarbons, and I'd seen an autopsy of a man who had really bad emphysema. And I'd always hated the smell of my parents' cigarettes. I don't know what was wrong with me that I started smoking. At least it didn't last long, not much more than 2 years, with stopping while I was pregnant in the middle of that.

You grew up in an era when cigarettes were ubiquitous. I smoked from 18 to 28. Pot is another story. I hadn't smoked in nearly 20 years because I had no access. In CT, I have a medical marijuana card so I now smoke regularly.

True, but I basically hated them. Until I didn't. I think I was succumbing to the "coolness" factor; I can't really claim peer pressure. Started after I dropped out of college and was working at a pharmaceutical company, hanging out with smoking coworker's on breaks. And the guy I was living with smoked all the time too. Until he wanted to quit. (Which was when I quit, for his sake.)

Marijuana - I used it when it was illegal, in California mostly, in the 60s & 70s. Maybe a little in Michigan too, late 70s. Then I just totally lost interest. It's legal where I live now, but I'm just... still not interested.

Pot is much less harmful than alcohol. It's ridiculous that it's illegal.

I agree completely. I'm glad it's legal here in Colorado, and I think it should be legal nationally.

I'm not *entirely* unhappy that it's taking a little while for legalization to spread. I think there are a few lessons to be learned before/while we switch back to full legality, and I'm pretty much content to have Colorado and the other "legal" states learn them rather than everyone race into headlong, & maybe bomb in some areas. (Like how to handle it with driving; what about use in public; what about employers that don't want employees using, etc.) But I don't want it to take very long.

I say throw caution to the wind. Pot has been part of society for as far back as I can remember. It's time for society to benefit from that relationship.

I started smoking cigarettes in middle school. Fun fact.
