    Depends on the person, some people are like me, quit drinking much of the time back in 1966 when the first kids was born. Never missed it. I bet that I drink a beer once of month or so. Then you have some people who drink because it makes them mellow out. Some drink for the high, some drink because they are addicted to it. It is a lot like pot now all have a diff reason for smoking or eating it. Never tried POT but it is one my list to try.

    Never hit anything while drinking, but did put many a driver in a parking lot so I could keep a eye on them not to get robbed. That changed in the 80s. But in the old days let them sleep it off. Only person I ever arrested threw up on me and the New patrol car. really pissed me off.

    Pot users have a real problem with distance perception so they have a high rate of running into the rear of cars...

    Nice. My friend and I tried to make wine from a kit during college. I think making beer cost more, so we thought we try this first. His mom had a dark garage, so we kept it there. The day came when we were to try it. It looked good under the light. No sediment. Then we tried it and spit it out immediately. It had become vinegar. We gave up after that.

    Pot is a hassle for LEOs because they get calls for public smoking like in an apartment complex. That is still illegal and a nuisance. I suppose if someone is really stoned, then they can be put in with the drunks.

    I believe in CBD or cannabidiol if you have arthritis or other minor aches and pains. It probably is less addicting than aleve or prescription opioids. You can take it in liquid form, spray, or syrup mixed with soda or soda water. I'm not a regular user, so wasn't familiar with the side effects -- 7 Benefits and Uses of CBD Oil (Plus Side Effects). That said, I'm sure you're talking about smoking the good stuff. First time, you may not feel anything. Usually, the second time you will and be really whacked. It hit me like that the second time and my friends threw me in the trunk of a car and did donuts on the sand on a beach. It was hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing.

    I bought a bottle of CBD tablets, and it had zero relief for my arthritis and knee pain. Needless to mention, I'm never going to buy any more.

    I think it is pretty good for women getting knocked up. Many a kid has been conceived during a drinking party.

    Maybe if you'd have some wine every once in a while you wouldn't be so uptight eh?

    I mean something to consider. Maybe your jackboots wouldn't be so tightly laced up there Penny

    I'm really sorry you had to deal with that beautress. Yeesh.

    I have never understood mean and angry drunks. If drinking makes you mean and angry why continue to do it? Unless you enjoy feeling angry and mean? I don't know. Clearly I must be naive.
