    I was wondering how badly, if at all, does being high affect your judgement personally?

    Obviously it could depend on how much you've smoked, but generally when people smoke they aim to get baked. So like how much does it affect YOUR decision making and other judgments.

    When I hadn't smoked for 8 months, I smoked a chronic blunt with one of my friends. And I have to say my judgment was fucked, I don't think I could have even rode a bike, and I do that daily(or walked a straight line for that matter.) But since I've been smoking daily it hardly affects my judgment at all.

    What kind of decisions are we talking about?

    I still know what's right and what's wrong after I get stupid. The only thing that I might be considered "impaired" is my ability to keep my mouth shut in a comfortable environment.

    Well I smoked a joint at like 2 and by 2:15 I was like "oh shit I should get McDonalds!" So I just went and got 20 nuggets came home and ate them all. An hour later and I'm regretting it.

    Well Depending on how much I smoke.

    If I just take a hit or so to get a buzz im in a good mood and relaxed.

    If I get high Im in really good mood, I can talk to everybody easily (im normally very socially awkward) and Im hungry and everything is just perfect.

    If im stoooonnneeddd though I can barely walk let alone hold a meaningfull convo. I say stupid things that make me feel stupid later.

    So no it doesnt affect my judgement until i get reallyyy baked.

    Reaction time (reflexes) or ability to function normally and decision making are different. Although I think being high on mj can affect judgment/ decision making, especially if you're new to it, I don't think it has as much effect in this area as other drugs. For the most part, people on weed decide to veg out and talk and observe, rather than do things where decreased reaction time would get them into trouble.

    My logical decisions are fine... like making choices in a sketchy or paranoid situation. But my motor skills CAN lack a little bit if i'm too baked. Just depends, I usually know when to not get on my longboard so i'm all good.

    I'm not sure what the definition of "baked" is, but I vape to get high, not incapacitated. I'm sure if anyone consumed enough it would affect their judgment. I have no inclination to consume that much. I got over that 40 years ago.

    honestly unless ive smoked like a 20 sack (3-4 grams) to myself idc i can do watever i want, and if i smoke that much it isnt the question if i can go drive or run around, but really how much i want to compared to how much i want to sit on the couch and play video games or listen to music lol
    i normally dont smoke that much but im just saying i dont think weed affects my reaction time or anything, hell i go to my varsity soccer games stoned all the time =P

    Basically I am giving a example of how Marijuana and alcohol can cloud my judgment.

    No even when I get -really- baked, I know what to expect when I smoke so before I do so I take precautions to ensure I won't be surprised by any predicaments. When something unexpected pops-up I can still make a good judgment call.

    I'm usually relaxed and very logical, even during a full-blown panic attack I was able to keep my relative composure, as much as you can during a panic attack. Maybe it's because I'm a natural optimist.

    no. especially not now. it probably did when i first started doing it (like 3 1/2 years ago) when i used to get mind bogglingly high. but now i can't get nearly as high as then so definatly not. my decision making is no different high then not

    Yeah but the question was about whether WEED affects your judgement, not alcohol and weed. Alcohol has been proven to cloud your judgment, so i'm not really sure why you mixed them both in your answer.

    Hmm, let me think about that as I am stoned. Well, it depends what your definition of judgement. I can actually think very logically, and can do stuff like complicated math problems, I'm just ususally in a kind of daze. However I never put my judgement to that big of tests when I'm high, like I don't drive (although I must admit I did many times at one point, in high school, when I was kind of immature). My train of thought will sometimes be absolutely halted. For that reason I only get stoned if I know I wont have to talk to someoen like a professor or someones parent (including my own) for an extended period of time. Actually, my judgment gets VERY impaired when I'm drunk, compared to that, the imparement on judgement weed gives me is nothing.
