Wait. If he comes back and finds you replaced him he might go back to drugs because you betrayed him.

Get someone new for those 3-6 months, then kick the new dude out when your friend gets back....or just have two bassist?? anyways, good luck with your decision, and good luck to your rehabilitating friend

(BTW: rehab sucks!)
Marijuana is not a drug! its simply a plant

What is he in rehab for?


his P.O. came to drop him but he couldn't piss.. so they called it a dirty drop.. and to the people saying that he's just going back to drugs.. he was never on drugs he only smoked pot.. which isn't an issue..

3-6 months for weed? was he eating it with milk?

I say take the opportunity to write a ****load, and keep his place.
Also, is he allowed his bass in rehab?

yeah pretty much.. but either way the Illinois judicial system sucks.. when my friend got popped with possession of heroin and went to jail for 16 days and now my bestfriend fails a drop -scratch that- doesn't even technically fail and goes away for probably 4 months..

not sure.. but I was thinking about going to get his bass from his house and play bass and get this other guy that I know to play guitar.. and we haven't really gotten into writing yet.. we do covers and do freestyle jams sometimes but we never really keep track of what anyone is playing

Look for high school seniors who'll be leaving soon for college and want to fill some time.

3-6 months, for marijuana.

WTF!

Keep the guy, not like he's on heroin or coke. As long as he isn't a total burnout don't do anything rash.

And I thought this was serious.

That has nothing to do with the definition of "drug". It alters one's central nervous system, therefore is a drug, regardless of whether it be natural or not.
