A counselor, doctor - someone who knows what they are doing.

Yes. I am an advocate for marijuana legalization but ONLY for people over the age of 21. Your brain is still developing..you need to allow it to do that...plus you seem to be ABUSING it rather than just USING it...moderation is key...when it begins to interfer with your life, that's how you know it's a problem...do you have a counselor, friend, sister, cousin, someone you can reach out to??

Well my friend it is high time for you to understand what damages smoking marijuana can do to your health. Basis on which it is better for you to get first hand help from a rehab centre, where they can truly help you to combat all addictive issue & lead a sober life.
