Re: should you smoke marijuana on your aikido journey
This is a personal choice question. Of course noone should ever be on the tatami under the influence of anything. But if someone wants to use marijuana at the weekend or whenever it's completely up to that person. Why should it bother any of us. What could bother us directly is aikido shihan coming in to the dojo smelling strongly of tobacco. And much sadder is that there is still in some budo circles an unattractive ethos of hard-drinking = cool.
