    Does marijuana help you?

    Marijuana is much more safe than Alcohol

    Marijuana Prohibition is a Political Issue. Most people who have not tried marijuana have absolutely no idea what the benefits. Due to federal regulation restricted as a Controlled Substance Class I, which research cannot be use by government funding, minimize the understanding by the general public.

    I've smoked marijuana on and off for the past 30 years. The main reason why I take it is to relax and minimize my anger issues. The anger stemmed from having a father who would fly off the handle every now and then (father passed away in 2007). My father was a very honest, yet firm person who would let you know how he felt when things were not going well. Unfortunately, the anger not only affected me, it affected the rest of the family.

    I've found that over the years, I depend less on smoking and more on learning about my own physiology. Yet, I enjoy smoking marijuana over drinking. Why might you ask? Drinking, especially if you have one too many, will have you "swimming" while sleeping and waking up with a nasty hangover. When marijuana, the worst thing that can happen is you fall asleep. When you wake up in the morning, you'll feel refresh. Never I have ever woken up to a hangover after a night of smoking delicious, tasty buds.

    Therefore, the answer to the question "Would You Buy?" would be a WHOLEHEARTEDLY YES.

    Last, but not least, smoking marijuana should not subject any individual to be incarcerated. It's as harmless as they come. Due to Nixon and Reagan attempted to make drug users a 3rd class citizens, the time have come to clean the slate and allow each citizen to take responsibility for their own action! Cheers to BUDS....
