Do you have feelings that there is something wrong with what you do in using herb? I mean in the physical sense of breaking the law each time, Is there anything else like this, that can get you arrested? Look at traffic rules, most people don't obey all rules all the time, like full stopping when no one is around ( I do bec am always afraid of police even when no weed). But you do meet with people who could go to jail for a long time, if not you then your friend who gets it. I wonder about the effect of being a criminal in the societies eyes, how does if any, effect you, your personality, when it shouldn't be the case. I also feel a certain depression and disappointment in life bec Cannabis is illegal ( in most states) and society wants to maintain this 'stigma' - they know there is no good reason to keep it illegal. All they ever say is 'what do we tell the children?' this is a scam, it means nothing obviously, you tell the children it's illegal till age 21 like alchohol; sex, gambling, etc. that's all. But I think they don't want more people to use Cannabis. Why? Are they all working for big alchohol? no they are not, but the society has and continues to have a negative image of cannabis consumers. Why this is, I am really not sure, just that the conservatives have the upper hand on this. In any case, while some would switch from alchohol to cannabis, my feeling is most people can get it if they really want so they don't bec they have come to prefer alchohol. Maybe you would have 10-20 % increase of people so what. Personally I prefer people to use cannabis over alchohol. But the trick is, we have to convince those who vote or answer polls, the truth about cannabis. without a 'cannabis lobby' it is that much harder.
