Push, nudge and continue to screw up what you have. I am a ex pot smoker. By choice. I have no problem with people who want to smoke it. Simply put, get high legally and quit making people regret they passed the laws for you. No, I do not want to smell your weed from your car or in public places not deemed approved for smoking. Your anarchist behavior is ruining the cause many have fought for over the last 40 years. If I enjoyed the dumbing down effects from pot still I would be so happy just to have it legal finally! The man is winning here either way so wake the f—k up!
