    Does marijuana help you?

    Retail pot

    Yes, I would. I smoke pot and have done so for 40+ years. I have not tried anything else - which my sons' do find difficult to believe. I have never wanted to try anything else. For me, pot has NOT been a gateway to more dangerous substances. I do not enjoy 'the high' from wine or alcohol and certainly do not enjoy the morning after feeling. I am a high functioning, contributing member to society and wish with my entire soul that pot would be legalized in ALL of the U.S. states. I am transparent about all aspects of my life EXCEPT this one. And, that does not make me proud. Most people are quite surprised when I choose to share that I use pot. And, contrary to popular belie,f smoking pot does not make me lazy - quite the contrary. I enjoy the 'extra' energy that I feel, my ability to focus and the creative parts of my brain that are firing. Like everything else, moderation is essential. Work time is work time and play time is for playing. Respect for those present and who is influenced by actions should be exercised when adults are consuming adult beverages OR lighting up. Thank you for providing this forum for a voice.
