I question for former weed smokers....

Do you feel dumber after you stopped smoking? It seems like after I stopped I started forgetting things and doing dumb stuff.

  • Smoking pot kills off your brain cells, but I'm guessing you didn't know that.

  • LOL actually I felt smarter Pot clouded my head (it was good at the time though) LOL I grew up and out of it, now DH and I joke that when the kids are gone were retiring and becoming pot heads again - I look forward to that day lol except then I will probably have some legit illness to smoke it .

  • I was dumber while under the influence but not in general. Wasn't that the point of smoking it?
