Well, it may be legal in your country, but there's probably age restriction as there is with booze, cigarette, porn access, etc. My state legalized pot this year, but you have to be 21 and over to buy it independently. However, 18-20 can use it with supervision. But who knows, they probably modified the law since last year. After all, we were supposed to have legal pot by now but it's been pushed off to January 1st 2018 last I heard.

Anyways, back to you. I would just bring it up, that's what I do, but they're always hesitant because of the way I can behave, so your mum might be the same way if you behave erratically.

Hey there,

When someone chooses to smoke weed they also need to be aware of certain things. Some of them are: Laws. Despite it being legal in your country, there is an age to smoke weed, are you aware or familar with the age that you are allowed to smoke weed legally? The law in Amsterdam is 18 years of age to smoke weed legally.

Speaking with your mom about this might be helpful, to get her input and opinion on the matter of you are wanting to smoke weed, but, ultimately this is your decision to talk to her or not.

Why are you interested in smoking weed? Everyone has their own reasons, I am just curious why you are wanting to smoke weed.

Re: I want to try to smoke weed - October 7th 2017, 07:40 AM

Your mom smokes it? Well maybe she knows more about it than I do.

I have a relative who smokes it. She's an aficionado. She can tell you all sorts of stuff about it that's way over my head, because I know nothing about it. She says there's different strains, this is better, that is worse, use this type of pipe, do it like this, etc.

Now she's given it up. OK I lied, she still does it.

Go ahead. Just be ware of what potential side effects to watch out for that are unpleasant.

Some people get paranoid after too much use, or constantly using it for too long. Or something else happens. Just be on the lookout for possible unwanted side effects, or changes, or paranoia. (People who have a tendency toward Schizophrenia should probably not get started on it.)

Probably best to do with a friend. Doing it alone is how people become addicts. (Well they can become addicted doing it with others too. It's when you find yourself doing it even after you've decided not to do it anymore, that's when one may discover they can't stop. They want to stop, their body insists on doing it anyway.

But don't worry there's always a way back for the person who's willing to put in the effort.

Everyone experiences the effect of weed differently. While some may have positive effects, other will have negative effects. When you are stoned, you don't have complete control of your body, you space out for seconds to minutes at a time that feels more like hours. When I smoke, I have negative effects, which is why I only do it once or twice a year on special occasions. But as I said, everyone is different and it's important to know what your body is capable of handling and avoid as much negative effects as possible. This includes food, and what you've been drinking. There's a lot of research that has to go in to smoking, but I take that more seriously. You're much younger than me and probably just want to experiment.

As mentioned above, everyone's experience is different. Some people get a lot of anxiety from it, others get very goofy, and then others get very tired. I personally do smoke once in a while, but for me it's medicinal, I don't always enjoy it, so it's not all it's cut out to be

All I can say about weed is I have never smoked it but I have been at a few parties where it has been there and the smell has given me a headache. Like others have said people who smoke it they are affected in several different ways so if you do decide to do it I would personally do it in the privacy of your own home and don't plan on going anywhere just to see how you deal with it.

Well if it's legal where you are, I don't even have to pretend like there's some sort of moral argument against smoking weed. I don't even have to follow the rule of telling you to obey the law! Awesome.
Contrary to popular opinion, weed really isn't very bad for you in moderation. Alcohol is far more dangerous and has killed a ton of people; hell, even tylenol has killed people. You want to know how many people have died from a weed overdose? Zero. It is scientifically impossible to overdose on weed. Basically every study claiming that weed causes brain damage has been debunked, and now scientists are even skeptical that it has a link to lung cancer. The THC supposedly filters the tar out of your lungs or something like that. HOWEVER, smoking a ton of weed before your brain is fully developed (usually developed from 22-25 years old) is thought to slow down the development of the frontal cortex of your brain.
Personally, I smoke a lot of weed. I have a med card and it helps me sleep. It might not do what you think it will, though. For example, when I smoke, it often makes me really quiet; I assume that I associate weed with sleep. Who knows though, maybe you'll become a party animal or something.
If you're wary about smoking, you could buy some edibles or use a vaporizer. Watch out with edibles though. Its easy to eat way too much because they take a long time to kick in. My best friend made the mistake of thinking the edibles weren't working, so he ate more and he was still high the next day.
