    Does that make sense?

    NVM is an acronym for Non Volatile Memory, such as used in the memory card in your camera (presuming you have a non-film camera).

    It can be an acronym for anything you assign it. Nice Verbal Mendacity (your a good liar) but I have seen it used in the context of texting so responded accordingly.

    I was gently poking a little at the ways of the youth these days with their interesting takes on shorthand -- when using the IM feature at my workplace I see things like "lol" and "brb" which I always think of as "lolly" and "burble" respectively before I realise they're something else. Interestingly (or not), "brb" can mean "be right back" or "bathroom break" and be equally accurate in some cases.

    As for "nvm", I understood from your post what that meant (and was not questioning you) but wonder why pick the letter "v" in there instead of just "nm", or something like "nmnd"? Must be my aging brain not keeping up with the insights around these days.

    I know I'm really late to the game on this. But Drug education is what I do for a living. So here's the first thing I thought of with Cannabis and trumpet--in addition to the issues with smoking of course--One of the best documented negative outcomes for frequent marijuana users (not your once in awhile folks, but people smoking pretty much every day) is short term memory loss. That's the ability to remember what just happened (not what happened yesterday but a few minutes or even 30 seconds ago) so people often forget what they are doing. etc. Which could pose a problem when you are trying to play a difficult piece.

    There is also a condition called a-motivational syndrome in which heavy users lose the drive to succeed and accomplish life goals (think of it as the Jeff Spicoli syndrome).

    Those are the things I would worry about. Any time people are frequently relying upon a substance (any substance) to alter their mood there are potential negative effects.

    And it can all change on a dime and we "old" folks wouldn't know! If I'm in doubt, Urban Dictionary to the rescue although 98% of their references are crude in nature.

    LOM (Lack Of Motivation) is a real problem with teenagers. Know one personally that like wants to be an engineer you know what I'm sayin. It's really kinda hard though so I don't know. I do need a job (so I can keep buying weed) busing tables. Maybe one day I can be a waiter. They make more money (So I can buy more weed). There's a reason it's called dope.

    I sure am glad this thread came back to life. Why resurrect this one?

    Marijuana use is currently a hot topic in this country.
    Talking about pros (are there any?) and cons is worthwhile.

    Maybe some pothead IDK with short term memory loss thought they should chime in because they forgot they already chimed in. There are some funny posts in here.
