"I have witnessed many lives ruined by alcohol, and met every kind of alcoholic from sappy sentimental to raving murderous madman (family and their friends). Alcohol problems are rampant in my family; it is very bad.
Some in my family smoke marijuana. Some functioned less; nobody was cruel or molested or beat anyone. Most were kind and insightful. I realize you might not get great accomplishments out of someone who smokes a lot, but you won’t get the abuse of alcohol or aggression drugs.Then there’s meth…the devil himself is behind that one"
