    Retired/Disabled Pot Smoker says Legalize pot she's willing to pay the tax or let me grow my own

    I smoke pot, have since I was 15 years old. Smoked cigs from 15 to 21, smoked only pot since, currently 53.Grew up in Cleveland, high school drop out to become a single self employed mother for 22 years, until a couple of years ago I was retired to disability soc sec, having inherited CMT1 Neuropathy, a short circuiting of nerves causing a rapid deterioration of muscle mass at a rapid rate. Pot has always helped me sleep or deal with the neuropathy pain so yes, I would like it to be legal.
    The only record I have is a DUI & a disorderly conduct (a reduced felony charge for a pipe, marijuana) I need a pipe cause I haven't been able to roll a joint for at least 15 years. Pothead not Crackhead charged a felony for a pot pipe, AT 50. (Now its not a felony) My daily pot habit helped me deal with my disability as long as I could while working and now. I have worked since I was 16, paid my taxes and have a successful ESI mechanic son.
    So this Retired/Disabled Pot Smoker says Legalize pot she's willing to pay the tax or let me grow my own
