marijuana addendum EDIT PLS

Postby zoomzoom88 » Fri Aug 24, 2012 2:21 pm

On July 21, 2012 I was arrested for possession of under 50 grams of marijuana. I was given a Conditional Discharge and upon completion of a year probation the charge will be dismissed. I make no excuses for the events that occurred on that night and have learned a lesson. I value my future as a professional and I will never place myself in a compromising position such as this again. I am incredibly remorseful for my actions, and from this situation understand the severity of consequences that stem from smoking marijuana.

I am not sure the last 2 sentences are really necessary. They seem redundant.

Throw in a sentence about how you'll just smoke in your house and have your bag man deliver from now on and you should be good to go.

The last three sentences just say "I learned my lesson" three times. Also, for some reason the "I'll never...again" seems a little insincere, like a child asking for forgiveness. Maybe there's a slightly different way to say it

I hope this was in response to using "stem" in the marijuana addendum.

OP should throw something in about budding into a more mature person.

"I now understand the possible drawbacks that stem from marijuana, and I believe I have budded, from a green, half-baked student, into a lush, full adult."

I think everyone in academia knows what a joke marijuana prohibition is. I would remove the last sentence also.
