Does marijuana help you?
40 years a toker
That said, I use pot to help me cope with all the stressors of the world. From kids, to job, to traffic, to so much else in the 2000's, there is a lot that one can be stressed about. This is how it is with me.
I hold a great job, and MBA from a top university, and 2 kids now in college and doing great.
I am for legalization, but believe that many who are for legalization want this for the wrong reasons. It is NOT a harmless drug! You're inhaling smoke for gosh sakes! But it's not nearly as bad as tobacco, as far as damage to the lungs.
The real danger is that it MAKES BEING BORED OK. We may soon have a generation of couch potatoes.
The bottom line, is that you need to control it, or it will control you. If you can do this, it can be a great recreational drug, and one that allows you to function in life while on it.
