I can't stand pot

But good on them. Huge waste of police and government resources.

Reduce prison populations too. Gonna be a big fight with the feds I bet.

The myth of the slacker do-nothing pothead type is such a lie too. I've been an employer, and some of the workers who smoked dope on their own time were actually great and reliable employees.

I was more leery of heavy drinkers to be honest.

I've seen...

I've seen Reefer Madness and Assassin of youth and am afraid to try the marijuana. If I use it will I lose my mind and start killing people?

Enjoy your freedom!

Wish I could be there to celebrate with you all.
