    Changed your mind about marijuana?

    Buh-bye Alcohol!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     "I would...probably never buy alcohol again" if pot was legal in his state, says Tokahontas. "It would be my wine at the end of the day."

    Do you wish recreational marijuana were legal in your state? Post your thoughts here.
    - rachel8, CNN iReport producer

    When it comes to pot I guess my wife nailed it. She says that when my friends and I get together and drink alcohol (we're mostly 40-somethings), we act childish and stupid and sometimes even furniture gets broken. Plus she usually has to fight with one of us not to get behind the wheel.

    But when we gather to smoke a little bit, she says we are all easy-going and hassle free. Our biggest concern on pot night is whether or not we gave the Domino's guy the right address.


    Bottom line, i have smoked pot for 30 years now and have never seen the heartbreak and agony like ive seen with alcohol. And if pot is the gateway drug, the only drug it has led me to is more pot. I just like to take what God put on this earth and use it for pleasure, to relieve pain and stress. Plus, it allows me to get up the next day, hangover-free, and be a productive citizen. Thank you, sweet leaf!
