One of my friends who is a lawyer is an open marijuana smoker, and I am just curious if he ever were to be caught for posession, could he get disbarred for that? If so, doesn't really seem like it is worth the risk at all to me.
Do you ever lift with your back instead of your legs?Why would you abuse your body like that?
What people do on their own time without hurting anyone else is really their own business, and I think/hope most people would agree. That being said, getting caught in public using illegal substances would probably be a bad idea if your law firm found out, very likely not the sort of attention they would want tied to their name.

In fact, for some people (i.e. people with certain kinds of chronic disorders), it can actually help relieve symptons. Anyways read: http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/05/26/MNGAKJ2S481.DTL&type=science for a study on how pot smoking is not related to lung cancer (in fact, scientists found that smoking marijuana might help prevent lung cancer). And if you are worried about the toxins from smoking marijuana, a vaporizer would be the best and healthiest way to go: http://www.canorml.org/healthfacts/vaporizerstudy2.html.In any event, if you go to the bar to have a drink, you have no right asking why someone would abuse their body, as alcoholic causes more deaths and more damage to your body than marijuana. Just because it is legal doesn't make it healthy or healthier.
That being said there were lawyers who were known to be meth users working in our county.
