There’s no question about it, marijuana should have never been criminalized. It needs to be legal. While most of us use it to escape the stress of the world, others use it for serious issues and the best part, it actually works better than the various pills the doctors and pharmaceutical companies try to sell you. Myself, I have A.D.D. and severe depression (not looking for sympathy, could care less). I once had a prescription to Adderall as a child till one day, I decided to toss it all down the toilet, I hated it. While under it’s influence, I hardly slept, rarely ate, talked, or moved. I felt empty inside, like a large piece of myself was taken away from me. I began slipping into depression but, my parents forced me to take it anyway. Because of the home I grew up in, my depression got worse and worse until I came up with the conclusion that I didn’t want to live anymore. I wanted to die and I wasn’t even into middle school yet. Long story short, I fixed the issue by tossing the Adderall down the drain and told my parents that I will NEVER take Adderall again. After all, I was a complete zombie on it. By the time I got to high school, I could feel my A.D.D. getting in the way of daily school work, (sometimes I wonder if Adderall made it worse in the first place) I found it hard to stay focused and when I could focus, I had a million different thoughts racing through my head at random. I soon tried smoking marijuana and guess what? All those uncontrollable thoughts went away. I didn’t feel depressed in the slightest, I actually felt like eating, I could focus with ease, it was amazing. I wanted to be outside, my social problems flew out the window. I felt good talking to more people and most important, I felt normal.
