What’s the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘marijuana?’

Smoking it. And to me that's the numberone bad thing about it. It doesn't matter what you smoke, it’s not good for you. I wouldn't say that (I’m against legalization) but I just don't think it’s been thought through.

The first thing I think of is ‘Alright, alright, alright’ which is a direct quote from Matthew McConaughey in the film Dazed and Confused. I barely even remember the movie but it’s the first thing I think of.

You have to be careful with it just like with alcohol, but I like it… For me it helps me get through the days. Not every day is easy, and it just helps me get things sorted in my head. It helps me not to worry about every single thing, makes it smooth sailing.

Lack of attention, laziness, impaired, unmotivated and lack of ambition. There are cons I could see (legalization) bringing. I think it would be safe to assume more people would be trying it for the first time. I just don’t think marijuana is something that creates a society which makes people ambitious; it is a little bit of a crutch. I don’t think that is a positive.
