F*ck Tweety and the Kennedys on the issue of pot. [View all]

Did you see this?

"There is hard science showing loss of IQ and motivation" ONLY if tons is smoked when you are a teen (the IQ part).

I smoked pot every day for at least 10 years. All through college and law school. Every day. I'd be a fucking genius if pot lowered my IQ (sorry, don't mean to sound arrogant but I did good at book learning....while on pot!)


I know the Kennedys have had their share of problems with drugs and alcohol but I don't forgive them for not "getting it".

And don't tell me I'm not an addictive personality. Cigarettes for 30 years and I still chew the damned nicotine gum and let me tell you about my food addiction. Pot was the easiest to give up. I gave it up because as a lawyer I didn't think it was a good idea so did less of it and much more alcohol (it was just a miracle I didn't kill someone drunk driving) then I had kids and gave it up. Except for a couple of times a year.
