    I am sorry that I smoke pot. I hold a good job as a professional, I manage our home, and take care of our kids (dogs) and I also run my own business. Most days my head is tired and the weed helps me relax. I know it’s illegal, but so is speeding, so is murder, and so cheating on your spouse. Considering the fact that I am a good person and genuinely care, please leave me alone and stop judging me based solely on the fact that I enjoy Marijuana. I realize that society has taught you that people that use marijuana maybe have no teeth, no job, and are lazy, but I think it’s time you did some research, and learn for yourself that Marijuana is actually less dangerous than those booze you drink down. Truth is I am still the same person, just a little less stressed, and able to deal with all the things I deal with on a daily basis. So please, please, please, just because I do something you don’t approve of try not to judge me, because the truth is you’re just being ignorant, and offensive and we’re missing out on time we could spend together. Over a plant.

    Your hard working, caring genuine best friend who happens to smoke weed.

      I was a daily pot smoker for almost 20 years. It was the hardest thing I have ever quit, and I am so very glad that I did quit. I don’t have any regrets. I accept the person that I used to be. These days are the happiest of my life. I relieve stress by exercising. I love to exercise my mind, and I can do so in ways that I never could if I were smoking pot. I agree that people should have the right to treat their bodies as they see fit, and that pot is less harmful than other drugs like alcohol. However I think you owe it to yourself to see what life is like without it. You may be pleasantly surprised. No judgement, just some words from one (ex)smoker to another. Peace.
