the fact that you are so torn really concerns me. Weather its for recreational use or for a medical condition doesn't matter because you would be incapable of practicing as an RN. As nurses, we are often held to a higher standard than other occupations and we should live to that higher standard. You should quit for nursing school and for good. I question your maturity based on this being such a conflict for you.Peoples lives are going to be in your hands and one very important aspect of nursing care is to educate , will you be willing to put your personal beliefs aside so you can educate patients about the dangers of illegal substances?
Is this a real person really asking this question?? I wonder....
Maybe it is my age (50) or that I'm a mom of 4, ranging from 25 to 6. But missing using pot does seem immature to me.
There are so many wonderful aspects to living - getting stoned wasn't all that fun.
Like last night - I took my 6 year old for a walk to the river where there is a small dam and we sat there watching the water flow over, throwing rocks to make big splashes, felt the cool breeze through our sweat-soaked hair . .. . .it was heaven. Much better high than the one you get with pot.
And a daily smoker . . . . that is a lot.
There is a doc who prescribes medical pot to anyone - regardless of whether they really need it for nausea or pain. My nephew, a CHP, pulled over a car with two teenagers/legal adults (18 and 19) who pulled out their medical pot RX written by this doc . . . . for supposed back pain. Yeah, right. I doubt those boys know the meaning of a hard day's work.
