Prepare to call me a nerd, a square or whatever other derogatory, prudish name you can think of — because I’ve never tried marijuana. Never smoked it, never ate a pot brownie and never purposely ingested it. I suppose there is all that second-hand smoke that seems to billow around every concert venue, but I’m not sure that quite counts.


I can’t stand the skunky smell and have little interest in the mind-altering affects. I’ve been known to enjoy a pint or two, and never turn my nose up at a decent cocktail or a glass of red wine — but alcohol, not pot, is my drug of choice.
