: : She's 35 years old. Old enough to make her won decisions. I would suggest finding another girlfriend if this bothers you so much. Marijuana in moderation is harmless to her health. Either love someone like they are, or find someone else. You are not going to be able to change her. If that is her only vice, then consider yourself lucky. Are you perfect? Does she try to change you? Things to ponder.
: Would you consider smoking pot everyday in moderation? I don't.
: No, i'm not perfect, and yes she is trying to change things about me, and I am making the effort to improve myself for her, because I love her.
: Thank you for your input.
As usual...far right far left. Most things are somewhere in the middle.That is where you can meet and tell her your expectations on a future together. Give her a chance to change...that isn't to say give her slack...just sorta what was posted by Sean.
There will be those who defend pot as "harmless"...I once did. The health issues are usually far right or left also, again, somewhere in the middle. The legalit, however, is not.
I argued with my mom that it wouldn't lead to harder drugs. It didn't directly (like needing a stronger drug eventually) but if your open to one drug, the leap to others is easy (mentally and actual availability) I would be surprised if the person she obtains pot from could not get(?).
Give her a chance and she will pick the thing she loves the MOST.
