Does marijuana help you?
Why I smoke Marijuana
I suffer from stomach problems that can cause me to feel full or sick at random times throughout the day.
Smoking a little bit of Marijuana after coming home from work and the gym helps me gain an appetite to drink a protein drink and have dinner. It also helps me relax and get to bed at a relatively reasonable time.
It's time for this stuff to be legalized. Anyone who still thinks that Marijuana is detrimental or a "gateway" drunk are just plain naive and/or stubborn.
If people are allowed to drink themselves to death, smoke cigarettes to the point where they wake up in the morning coughing for 20 minutes, or take prescription anti-depressants that they then need to be weened off of to avoid serious side effects, I don't see why I can't legally smoke a bowl after the gym to help me eat and relax.
Also, to legalize it and tax it would certainly benefit the state, which desperately needs money.
I would buy retail pot in a heartbeat. Marijuana is a natural remedy to my stomach/eating problems. Also, it's fun to relax and watch a movie or play a video game while high!
