Hey Gary here, old school stoner, like graduated from high school in the early 60s old school. Been smoking weed since they fired Nixon. Started playing with Nitrous in the Carter administration. Other than that I just use alcohol. I will take a hit of speed now and then but usually only when I am tired and 200 miles from where I need to be. No downers at all. A little weed must be pretty safe It hasn't killed me yet.
