‘It’s A Shortcut,’ Says U.S. Woman Who Enjoys Weed
By Kent McRobotface
CHICAGO—Saying that the drug was a “safer alternative to cigarettes,” local woman Helen Montlisle admitted Monday that it was a “shortcut” to enjoying the drug. “I can enjoy the feel of the stuff, of course, but if I’m going to go out and make myself a marijuana cigarette, I’m doing it for a reason,” said the 49-year-old, who added that she occasionally takes the drug to lessen the general discomfort she feels when she walks into a bar or nightclub. “It’s just a way to go, and I enjoy the stuff as much as the other way around. Plus, it’s not that bad.” Montlisle then added that while it was a relief to be able to light up for a few hours, she has to admit that she would have preferred to light up for hours.
