(continued) When I grew up and was ready to settle down and start a family, I stopped smoking it for over 20 years, (so much for the addictive BS). About 10 years ago I had to stop working early because of a severe back injury and was put on medication, (codeine), and take it 3 times a day. It helps with the pain, but causes many side effects. Using marijuana helps temper the pain and side effects. Oh, and to answer your claim about driving while under the influence I'll add this, I drove a taxi in CAL for 4 years, and have been driving since before you were born, never had an accident that was my fault, never been ticketed for unusual driving, and I smoked pot almost every day.
