Yes. I am an advocate for marijuana legalization but ONLY for people over the age of 21. Your brain is still need to allow it to do 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 you have a counselor, friend, sister, cousin, someone you can reach out to??
