Unhappy Friends are using pot - December 5th 2009, 02:12 PM

Hi I need a little advice two of my good friends have recently began using pot, I've had my suspensions for months now. But the other week they offered me to join them smoking it, I refused and they tried to talk me into using it. But I feel to strongly to give into drug use.

I know it isn't as harmful as other mind altering substances and I've spent hours self educating myself on the use of pot to know its not something I want to get involved in using. But I don't feel the need to do anything like that and I don't want to risk ruining my life just to get high. But this confirmed my suspensions about my two friends.

I've had some friends I've known from the beginning of elementary school started smoking weed and I'm pretty sure they got involved with harder drugs at the beginning of middle school and it has ruined their lives. They are not the same people I grew up with and I am no longer friends with them to say the least. Now some of my middle school friends have began using pot and I'm afraid they will end up like the others I knew.

One of the guys has a fascination with drugs; learning about them and how they affect the mind and body and how they are made, and as u can guess he has taken that fascination into practice. I'm not sure but I think he may have introduced it to my second friend. Lately they have both seemed quieter and kind of dazed at times.

Is there anything I can do to help them I feel as though I'm losing them. I've already lost a number of friends to drugs I don't want it to happen again. Please help

weed aint a gateway drug so get that bull out of your head.yes some i repeat some ppl who use weed will move on to harder drugs in the same way that some ppl who drink applejuice will one day become alcoholics.if it bugs u just ask them not to smoke around u
