That feeling lasted for a few days. Cannabis has become legal in California, but I feel many people still see it as trashy, or what a low life would do. I have been considering medicating with it, but i'd like to know what are peoples thoughts on it? Is there anything wrong with using weed as a way to ease up & relax? Last time I did it was a few weeks ago and it felt so good, I was so positive & loving even for a few days after. I was surprised at how different I behaved, lots of hugging my family, joy, and so positivity. Is cannabis seen as trashy?

I don't think its trashy. As long as you don't let it consume your life and you do it a healthy amount, it's fine. I used to know a math genius brainiac person who did it regularly. Maybe your first experience occurred because you tried too much of it and it was an alien experience for your body.
