That can no longer be used as an excuse 🙂

  3. It’s time things changed.People believe a lot of propaganda the government put out to scare us and B.S. by those who are just scared of anything new.As for addiction,that is a total lie.There are people who can get addicted to anything,Hamburgers & Soda pop.Those kind will use any excuse to justify their bad behaviour.Pot is not addictive unless you have a mental problem that makes you vulnerable to anything and those kind will always be with us.Obesity for example.Some people look for anyting to blame for all their problems,instead of taking responsibility for their actions.
