Isn't moderation the key?

by RAUL
(Albany, NY)

Didn't I brain wash myself by using marijuana on a daily bases thinking that marijuana is not addictive when in fact I was addicted and not realizing it until after smoking for over forty years, now at sixty years old no one can tell me that marijuana is not addictive.

We must believe in our self when to much of a good thing can become problematic, like too much chocolate cake can be detrimental to ones health. Marijuana has some good qualities that need to be taken into consideration, the aesthetic value that only the user can experience on a personal level, I have tried every drug from LSD to Heroin to Alcohol and even crack-cocaine but am able to quit with no problem because these drugs are not my drug of choice.

I always said that I like good food, good conversation, good music. Perhaps John Lennon was right when he said STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER NOTHING TO GET HUNG ABOUT IT, IT'S REALLY UP TO US.
