Retail pot: Would you buy?
I learned the hard way that drug abuse can lead to other misfortune. Methamphetamine use led to a decline in self-responsibility and cost me a job, alcohol caused a lot of problems, and when I was young I learned that the psychedelic drugs we debilitating. "Tripping" was fun but didn't allow for much else, like driving, or carrying on a simple conversation.
I don't do that anymore.
However, I still use cannabis. I know that I am one of many who have, and still make a valuable contribution to our families, employers, and society in general.
It shouldn't be a crime for a consenting adult to purchase, possess, or use cannabis.
