I don't understand marijuana. I will admit that I had unfortunately smoked three times before. All of them with friends. I'm not sure why I did it but I did and I must say the whole thing is very stupid. It did almost nothing for me, and yes I smoked high quality stuff and quit a bit of it too but it only felt as if I hadn't eaten for 2 days.
Most of the kids in my school are stoners, and I have to put up with them for the rest of my high school life. When I ask them why they do it they say because it's fun. Most of them don't have the intelligence of my 12 year old brother. They have no other skills either, all they talk about is weed and other drugs. They are also experimenting with other drugs now too. Some of them are nice kids but others are real losers. I try and tell them that it's only a waste of money but they wont listen.
Also the only reason I see kids drinking alcohol is because it's illegal, my mom, (shes from Europe so she see's it as no bid deal) lets me drink a little bit of wine every once and a while and I NEVER have abused it while other kids I know would go crazy with any alcohol they find.
