I am a 29 year old Civil Engineer working for one of the leading firms in the DC region. I smoke pot regularly for recreation. For me, smoking a joint is no different than having a glass of wine or smoking a cigarrette (although I dont smoke tobacco). After a long day at work and while cooking dinner, I sometimes smoke a little pot to relax and de-compress. I dont feel pot affects my life in any negative way. It actualy helps me relax and cope with stress from work and life. If I go out drinking during the workweek, even it ist a couple of drinks, the next morning I feel tired and not at my 100% potential. Hoever, if I smoke pot, I can function to my 100% potential the next day. I dont understand why pot is illegal or even considered a schedule 1 drug. This seems ridiculous and out of touch with all scientific research and pot smokers testimonies.
