    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    Does marijuana help you?

    Why Not?

    Why shouldn't I be able to smoke pot? I was against it forever and ever. People that smoked pot were not allowed in my life. I was close minded and easy to repel anyone who didn't think like me. I was judgmental. I was controlling. I was shallow. Things bothered me that shouldn't. I couldn't go to school, I was constantly crying. Marijuana has been the natural cure to my character defects. When using marijuana recreationally, It's who I want to be. It has helped me develop into who I want to be. It helps me live more care free and enjoy life and what it has to bring with out me constantly worrying about the future and things that are irrelevant. It also helps me be an all around easier person to be around. I've become more holistic and an over all calmer, more down to earth person.
