I agree with most of the comments. Now, the personal story.

I used to smoke about 1 joint/day for a good 6 months, right before I left the US. I didn't feel good about doing it so often and I knew it was because I wasn't very happy. I've never touched it since, and never missed it. It's not addictive. Alcohol and cigarettes are much, much worse.

I knew a guy in college who was dealing and smoking way too much. He had turned into a complete idiot. He acted like he was stoned, even when he wasn't. You don't want to go there, believe you me.

DUI of MJ is bad, but DUI of alcohol is way worse.

Working Under the Influence is not that bad, if you're a programmer and you're stuck. MJ opens up your mind, but you don't want to put that code in production before going over it at least once when you're sober.
