I just read an article by Yi-Hsuan Lee and am so angry/confused I feel
the need to write.

Not only is smoking fun and allows me to think in other ways not
possible without the drug, but I often study or take tests while
"under the effects" as you say.

I am a student at Georgetown Universtiy, a biology major and Chinese
minor and got a 3.1 my first semester. My grades are even better this
semester, and I can't stand it how people say just because some people
can't study and smoke, its impossible to study while on the drug.

I find myself understanding the material much deeper and more
thoroughly to tell you the truth. I have never become addicted to it,
going months without it has no effect on me. Sure, I want to smoke,
but it's not like I have to.

Also, using a vaporizer is a much healthier way to smoke as it does
not burn carcinogens, but the government refuses to fund research for
it. I wonder why?

Maybe they were wrong to illegalize it in the first place, which was
only a way to control the "crazed mexicans" coming across the border?

I just wanted to share my 2 cents and I'm sure many other people will
feel this way as well.
