Rationalizing pot smoking because Bill C. did it. Do you also not inhale?

Good luck finding a job building bridges when you graduate - I hope you have
of drug tests.  Most companies require drug tests as a prerequisite to
hiring.  I also hope you plan to keep this to drug habit to after work.  I
don't want to be driving over any bridges that have been "creatively"

I personally believe that drugs should be legal, but bottom line is that
until the law is changed you can go to jail for smoking pot.  That is enough
deterrent for me.
