I used pot and quit it at the same time I quit tobacco, in 1980.
Although I'm for its decriminalization, I do know one thing for sure: pot is not healthy at all, and the longer it is used the more of one's health is lost. That high is your brain fuzzing out. That relaxed feeling is artificial and has a rebound when the stuff is out of your system.
That's the same thing we can say about alcohol, which is regulated but not criminalized.
I don't like to see arguments in favor of drug decriminalization mixed in with any notions of health benefits for the simple reason that none of those supposed benefits have panned out in the long run, quite the opposite.
It needs to be regulated. But the idea of putting people in hard prison for growing or using it is an outrage in the modern world.
