    Does marijuana help you?

    Senior Leader will use cannabis!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Colorado resident tmitchem1 was inspired to open up about his experience using pot because he wanted to dispel stereotypes. 'There are many people, professional people like me, who are living in the shadows. They take cannabis or cannabis infused products but are afraid to live with it in the open. Not me... not anymore. I use pot,' said the 42-year-old. As a husband and father, he says using a little bit of marijuana helps him sleep better and even helps him parent more consciously. Although some people have stopped talking to him because of it, he says his close friends and family simply do not care that he uses pot occasionally. 'The profile of pot needs to shift. It is no longer underground and people like me will carry the torch into the future to reeducate the public,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Frankly I am thrilled about legal cannabis. My wife and I already use it on a regular basis and have found it to be quite amazing. Like a glass of wine at the end of a hard day or when the kids are acting up, we use cannabis to relax our nerves and calm our minds. The most exciting difference between cannabis and wine however is that with cannabis I NEVER feel adverse effects. I am NEVER hung over, NEVER ill, and NEVER impaired. My mind is free, and my body relaxed.

    So being a Colorado resident (and a senior leader in the leading cannabis product company in the US) I and my wife with most certainly be using.
