I have never in my life used marijuana. There was a time in my life when I would have partaken if offered, but it never was and I never asked.
I was the type of person that people would have suspected of being an undercover narcotics agent. I also was the type of person who wouldn’t have been able to spot an undercover narcotics agent myself.
During the same period of my life I drank a lot more beer than was wise. I thought that being able to drink and hold my liquor was a manly thing. The fallacy was that I didn’t hold my liquor all that well. My drinking nowadays is confined to a glass of wine a couple of times a month.
I never did smoke cigarettes, so there’s that.
Marijuana may be even safer than previously thought, researchers say by Christopher Ingraham for the Washington Post. (Hat tip to my e-mail pen pal Jack)
Of course we don’t know what will happen with marijuana if the tobacco companies start marketing it, and start tweaking the active ingredient in marijuana the way they have tweaked the amount of nicotine in cigarettes.
