I know personally, that pot can help balance people out. I used to get frustrated when people were ignorant, impolite, or just plain stupid. However, when i smoke regularly, I am much more open to other's views, I am less cynical, and I don't yell at people who are too stupid to know any better.
We've all heard that ignorance is bliss, and I've always kind of envied less intelligent people for that fact. I don't want to come off as a douchebag, but pot isn't just for burnouts and dropouts. Being mellow doesn't shut my brain off, but it turns it down just enough so that I can keep my extremely argumentative nature in check....That might come in handy in law school, but nobody wants to hear why the world is going to hell 24-hours a day. I wouldn't have any friends left.
