Everybody – my friends, music, television, almost everybody – seems to think that weed is okay. So many times I’ve heard the same phrases: “Oh it makes me feel good,” “Oh you can’t die from it,” “Oh I don’t see anything wrong with it, it’s not like I smoke everyday.” That’s not the point! Weed, just like alcohol and any other drug, impairs you. It impairs your judgement, your thinking, your body. Anything that alters or messes with your body is BAD. I mean I don’t understand why people would want to not know what’s going on around them. I don’t understand why anyone would want to be unfocused and dazed. I don’t see why anyone would not want to remember things that just happened, or smell terrible. The fact that it’s illegal to drive under the influence of weed PROVES even more that marijuana is not what anyone should do. If you’re not using it for medical purposes prescribed by your doctor, here’s some advice: Don’t Use It At All. Be above the Influence.
