It Helps Keep Me Alive.People have this misconception that weed makes everyone tired and lazy... I hate that stereotype. When I smoke weed I feel free from myself; *finally* ! I feel calm enough to focus which means I can work. It's better than any sedative I've ever taken and it's safer... But not the point.
I don't smoke weed to be "cool" as i am not sure how smoking anything could make a person "cool" - i smoke it because it helps me get through the day without me breaking down or giving up.
