I wouldn't say that 30% have done it regularly, but once or twice, yeah.

Maybe. I'd be hard pressed to name three people I know who have done it.

You without question know more than 3 people who have done it. If you have quite a few friends, I'd say you have over 100 regular acquaintances who have tried it at least once.

Yea, I was talking about close friends. People who I talk to at least once a week. I think we may just run in different crowds.

I'm one of those guys that could get addicted to chocolate milk. I just know that about myself. I would never try it out of fear.

Still.

I have tons of friends that can try stuff like that, and never want it again.

This is true though, every white person I know in EBR parish caught with weed got a summons, every black guy I know went at least a night in jail.

Jefferson parish most people go to jail for that, I was the exception.

If I had to take a guess, it's highly probable that at least one or two of your close friends has tried it and may still do it on occasions. People not in the circle, like yourself (not meant as an insult), are just blissfully ignorant of it. I would have never suspected it of some friends. It's honestly not that big of a deal trying it, just don't become a cokehead.

If people know you are anti-drug, they aren't going to tell you that they did them.

Whites buy it! Blacks are more likely to kill for ir and/or steal it!

My gut instinct when seeing these numbers is that cops are patrolling black neighborhoods due to violent crime. If they stop and frisk someone who has cocaine on them, or if they're going into someone's home investigating a robbery and find they're running a crack house and dealing, that drives the drug arrests up.

If murders and armed robberies were occurring in majority-white neighborhoods at the same rate, the drug arrests across both races would be closer.

Urban areas have a bigger cop presence and most blacks live in urban areas.

I mean, it's not as popular as it was in the 80s, but I don't think between the 90s and now it's had that much of a drop-off in popularity.

sorry you werent invited, but its not something people brag about or bring up. Those that do it do it and those that dont dont know.

If you brag about it you get caught.

Weed is illegal. Because it is, you are forced to deal with people who deal with illegal things. After enough time someone will have something more illegal around. And it'll get offered and tried.
