16 Things Only Women Who Smoke Pot Understand

Before Broad City came along, stoner dudes got all the attention. Which is too bad, because a) women also smoke pot and b) marijuana helps with lots of lady problems. It's a great pain reliever and a social lubricant, and it makes both sex and nachos more delicious. Here are 16 pros and cons of smoking pot that all women can relate to.

You can exercise when you're stoned.

Seriously, I have a friend who is a serious runner, and she will eat a not-too-strong pot caramel right before her run, and when it kicks in, it eases any pain and doesn’t make her tired since she’s already active.
