I think it simply bottomed out around 92 and they tried to come up with a new slogan. I think sometime around then they came up with the whole frying pan commercial..."this is your brain, this is your brain on drugs."

I'm not sure if there's any one explanation. Usage probably ebbs and flows based on a variety of factors.

I'll say that anonymously on this site. I'm no pot head, but I do partake, discreetly. I find it relaxing and fun. Nothing like catching a quick bake before laying by the pool, going to the beach, or watching a really funny movie. I never do it before I have anything of significance in front of me for the day.

I personally think the actual use of it is pretty harmless. Certainly more harmless than alcohol. The fact that alcohol is legal and weed is not is hilarious IMO. How many awful incidents does alcohol lead to in this country every day? People get hammered and do all kinds of dumb shit. Drive cars, beat people up, injure themselves and others, etc etc. When's the last time you saw a news headline that read "man high on marijuana robs bank, shoots security guard." ???? Doesn't happen.

Weed leads to good laughs, deep thought (in my case anyway) and junk food. I'm all for legalizing it, and not just because I smoke it. When you think about the massive tax revenue it would generate and pair that with the relief it would give to our legal system that is so bogged down with petty marijuana arrests/jailings, it would be a massive financial boost for the US.

I'm all for what Schneed suggested. Take the revenue generated by marijuana taxation and throw it back into the healthcare system.
i completely agree with you, and i'll admit i also smoke and i know after one really good night i left a post that didn't really leave much doubt. i have actually incorperated it into my workout/diet routine. since i drink alot less when i smoke i have been smoking more to cut down on the amount of alchol i drink getting ready for beach season. with smoking more and not drinkin as much and working out i have lost over 25lbs. i'm not saying it works for everybody but it's working for me.

as for legalization even before i started smokin again i have always thought it should be legalized. it is just a huge ammount of revenue just sitting there waiting to be taxed. i really honestly beleive that if it were legalized it would greatly help out our economy

the only real downside to smoking pot is the fact that this thread was started about a week ago and this is the first time i had noticed it

See back in the 80's I was not a very good speller or reader and I thought the slogan was "Just say Yo to drugs". So evertime I saw someone smoking a joint I'd go up and say "Yo, can I have a hit". Then in the 90's I was sitting in my room one Monday after noon when I realized that I should be looking for a job. While out walking around (I forgot I was looking for a job) I came across a billboard with a hot chick saying "Just say no to drugs". I have not smoked sense that day.

I was thinking of this thread last night while watching Intervention, there has not been one episode of someone who abused Pot that need an "intervention", plenty of alcohol episodes though. Just a small sample but interesting.
