Smoke pot in your time at your own place, not near me

I GET that we live in a democratic society so I want to exercise my democratic right to whinge about pot smokers.

If you want to smoke marijuana, which is illegal in Queensland, than that's your choice.

But when it comes to smoking it at a public event where there are children running around, I say "where is your common courtesy?" and "why couldn't you get high before attending the event?"

At the Jeremy and Friends concert on Friday night, not only did certain people light up metres from children as young as five, but they smoked pot in the same area.

Now I try not to be one of those annoying ex-smokers (having quit 10 months ago) that whinge at people smoking near me. And I don't. I just walk away or bury my nose in my jacket so I don't have to smell it.

And before you say 'typical ex-smoker probably didn't care who was around them when they lit up' - yes I did. I would only light up if no non-smokers were around and I would walk away from non-smokers if they were around when I wanted to smoke.

But smoking pot is different in that it is already an illegal act, let alone make unsuspecting innocent children have to inhale the drug.

Please, if you smoke pot, in the future, can you consider who is nearby when you have a chuff?

P.S. great event guys. Can't wait until the next one. Just make sure it's not in the middle of winter.
