I started smoking weed in early 80's. Stopped after I quit college and joined the Army. Started back up when I retired from the Army. To this day I still enjoy a bowl or two to relax me after a very stressful day.
Smoking pot is no different than any other drug when used by a responsible adult. I never drive while stoned, I never use around my children or other people. If you were to meet me in person you would never guess I smoke. I am saying this because while I was in the military I was used to combat the flow of drug into the US. The whole time I was doing the job the US govt entrusted me with I always thought what a terrible waste of my abilities and taxpayers money. The "War on Drugs" has been a complete and total failure.
