Sorry mods, I took it down a ravine (damned hippies). This is for booze related listening, sorry OP.

For so many to spend so much in bars with live music, I'd say there's something to both listening to music and dancing while liquored up.

I agree with both sides. Booze can make music better, but certainly not always. Whiskey or port usually does, while beer and cocktails usually don't. I like beer with dinner, but for pure romance, nothing beats whiskey and port.

Medical cannabis is another animal altogether, and is very common where I live. Although most commonly smoked, the edible forms are substantially better in every way, and lack most of the negative side effects. Proper amount is key. Too much of anything is invariably a bad thing.

I usually drink a one cup of coffee every afternoon, and that can get me pretty pumped on music too.

I think the key is to listen to the type of music you're craving given how you're thinking and feeling.

To OP, there is difference with being totally wasted vs mildly inebrated and enjoying life. Drinking yourself to that state definetly dulls everything you do. But sitting down, with couple of whiskey/cognac glasses or strong beers in friday evening, closing eyes and listening to your favourite music feels so good.

Am I alone finding music is worse when you are drunk compared to 100 % sober? Surely It´s hard to find flaws in this mental conditions and the music make me want to puke but is that a positive lol
Music doesn't sound better when you're drunk. It's a myth.

but weed is highly addictive and far from a harmless soft drug...as the dutch want you to believe
Get your facts straight please.

Its much less addicting then alcohol and tobacco, or even coffee. Its about as addicting as fast food.

It is also less harmful to your body then alcohol and tobacco. 0 deaths from it a year. Doesn't cause lung cancer, ect.

Thats not true, it does contain carcinogens and has its own tar which is obvious (resin) that can lead to health concerns. It isn't completely harmless.

Alcohol also does not necessarily make music sound better. I suspect something to do with the relaxation that it helps induce that makes music more enjoyable for some. Recreational drugs are never necessary or shouldn't be necessary for a well adjusted healthy person. Some people will always prefer the way they alter perception and mood though.

I said lung cancer. Smoking anything causes health concerns; I was specifically stating lung cancer.

Anyways, Its just a safer alternate to alcohol and tobacco.

Your wrong. It will cause lung cancer just as readily. Smoked marijuana contains about the same amount of carcinogens as does an equivalent amount of tobacco. Its easy to google this and its most definitely true. Though you consume less of it, it is still as cancerous. Get your facts straight.

Alcohol does nothing for music to me. If anything it makes the experience less enjoyable as I am incapable of appreciating the finer aspects of the music as well and instead focus on volume. Inebriation softens the sensitivity of my eardrums significantly, even at mild levels (two or three drinks), which is why I gave up drinking.

Cannabis, however, is an entirely different story. I actually debated bringing up this particular facet of discussion, questioning how appropriate it would be, but suffice to say that it is closely involved with some of the most amazing listening sessions (nay, listening experiences) I've had in my entire life. However, I don't find it safer than alcohol because consistency is largely up in the air with cannabis.

1 spliff equals 20 cigarettes tar-wise, vaporize it then we might talk

but THC is still far from harmless, it messes w/ the immune/nervous systems and heart...stacks up in the testicules and any fat cell, google is your friend, ask him.

but well, there's a far cry between blazing 24/7 huge blunts and vaporizing tiny bits every few days...everything's lethal, nothing's lethal it's all about the dose you use.

I don't do any of these 4 things, can't tell.

right, stoned drivers never kill themselves in road accidents?

don't get too brainwashed by pro-marijuana ppl, it's a sacred herb, use it as such...and don't say it's harmless, it simply isn't.

No, you're wrong.

Let me google that for you

there's still major rates of tar in smoked herb, hard to deny...eh?

but yes, that's true, some cannabinoids are said to be beneficial against cancer...but only if you vaporize or use an extracted spray of some sort("marinol" anyone?), otherwise tar will just worsen things up.

Okay... but it doesn't cause cancer which was my point.
