Does marijuana help you?
It's GREAT to see, see?
Now more than 40 years later, I can STILL see. I recently passed my new drivers test with no problems and I have pot to thank for this ability. I have lived in Florida for the past 30 years and here it's not just a crime to get caught with pot, it's nearly a sin. You will be relentlessly persecuted and jailed for even a tiny amount of marijuana. So I've had to hide and fear for all of these years but I kept smoking. I enjoy it too, I don't deny.
So for all those who doubt in the medicinal benefits of this wonderful herb, just ask me. I hate to be forced to do this illegally as I don't do anything else illegal but should I be caught in the Florida law vice, I'd be jailed and my reputation ruined.
I am so happy to see the enlightened attitude displayed by Colorado and Washington state. As many state, should pot be made legal and taxed and regulated as is alcohol, it would be a boon. Also, organized crime would take a serious hit. And those like me would be able to continue in their lives being productive members of society instead of becoming criminals and outlaws. Sure, there's a time and place to smoke it but for me, it's a lifesaver and I CAN still see thank you very much. And there is a lot to see. Just look.
