I'm just worried that with how addicted Americans are to drugs that if they legalize it things will go downhill more than they are. I mean other countries have it but they don't have nearly as much addicts/abuse as we do here. I may offend someone but that is't my intent but I just get disgusted when people come out in public and stink like hell because they just used. I HATE the smell of marijuana, it makes me sick to my stomach. I used to sit near this guy in class that came in smelling like a damn bong every class and my fiance's brother does it outside around the back of the house and when he comes back in it LINGERS forever and makes me gag. It's bad enough with alcohol alone and all the assholes drunk driving killing people or getting into drunken fights where others get hurt or killed. No thanks.
In the first part of your post, you actually refuted your own argument. You said that in other countries, where the wacky weed is legal, there aren't as many problems with addiction and abuse. Which is the cause, and which the effect?
With classmates, there may not be a whole lot you can do other than to sit as far away from the person as possible. With your fiance's brother, though, assuming he doesn't live with you, you can certainly put your foot down about his use of it at your home. Just let him know, in a tactful yet firm way, that the smell makes you physically ill and it's not okay for him to smoke on your property, or to enter your home smelling like pot.
Also, marijuana is much safer that alcohol.
