I need to make another post because there isn't enough room in one to say all I need to say. Recent studies show that working hard and being successful releases dopamine, which is a kind of reward response for the brain. But now if you smoke pot, the brain will release all the dopamine or endorphins you want, and in spades! No more need to work hard for it! This is why smoking pot severely suppresses ambition and drive. I haven't even begun to discuss it's effects on the mind, which I have first hand experience in. If you think legalizing pot will not have a severely adverse affect on society, you have clearly been smoking way too much of it yourself.
