I am currently a housewife w/3 children, and smoke marijuana on a daily basis. I have been smoking since I was quite young actually. I am college educated but choose to stay home w/my children and glad for the opportunity to do so. I was raised by parents who regularly smoked as well as most of my family. I didn't even realize it was illegal until Jr. High when my friends so informed me. I find that it makes me a much more easy going, open minded individual, and much better at handling teenage girls melt downs. I actually have been "busted" with it 3 different times in my life. But luckily for me the officers always chose not to press charges on me for it. In other words they kept my weed and let me go. Thank God! In my experiences I have never had one person get irate or mean while they are smoking. However being around someone who is drinking is extremely dangerous, as in i.e. my ex who is now in jail because of alcohol related behavior. I can not for the life of me understand how alcohol is completely legal and not demonized like marijuana. It is much more destructive of people and those they love. Marijuana has a sedate calming effect, that many try to imitate with prescription medications which is highly more addictive and harmful to your body. Not once have I ever had to be put on antidepressants, and hopefully never will. Thank You for listening Kisha!
