Hi, I was thinking about trying weed for the first time, but sadly grew up with a lot of the propaganda handed down from school and parents. While not religious I was still raised by a babyboomer conservative family. Now I'm 19 and while I am free thinker its hard to just shake off everything that was hammered into your head while growing up. Its also a bit scary trying anything that you've have never done before. I have two questions. First, I see a lot of people "get high" almost every day, isn't that too much? Doesn't that me you are just escaping reality and your responsibilities? Second, was anyone else scared to try it there first time, and then feel good about it? This is the way I feel now, nervous to try but I want to. I hope this thread doesn't piss anyone off, I'd like to think I'm opened minded, just have a few concerns.
