When my bestie & I started dating, I told him that I did not care about the fact that he was a pot smoker. He told me that it was helpful for medical reasons, but I knew he just wanted to hang out with his friends & do drugs. I wasn’t going to force my bestie to quit smoking, however there came a time when I insisted he tried to quit. I really didn’t suppose it was going to be a problem, however my bestie had a lot of concerns when he tried to stop smoking pot. His entire mood changed & not in a superb way. He was ecstatic all of the time when he was smoking pot, despite the fact that he was depressed & anxious after he quit. After many weeks, I realized that it was better for my bestie to use medical marijuana then feel anxious & depressed all of the time. That was the first time in my life that I really considered the medical benefits of using marijuana, and until then I entirely believed it was a recreational drug. My bestie made me see cannabis in an really odd way. After going back to smoking pot every single day, my bestie returned to his lovable & ecstatic-go-fortunate self. I l gained a lot during that relationship, & it lasted almost 2 years. My bestie & I eventually parted ways, however I willnever forget how much he changed my opinion on medical cannabis. I no longer consider the use of marijuana a deal-breaker when looking for relationships with a odd guy.
