How the views on marijuana changed

It is funny that the mindset on marijuana has changed.

  • When I was a boy I remember sitting in assemblies about the dangers of drugs.

There was a section for each illegal drug and it talked all about the terrible side effects. Former addicts then would talk about how their lives were wrecked due to drugs. Cannabis was 1 of them. Weed was poorly pushed so hard to me throughout college I was really a bit scared of it. I never partook in cannabis in high school either. That was basically saying I didn’t want to get hooked on something harder and die. In college cannabis started to get less of a bad reputation, although I still wasn’t planning to throw my future away. By the time I graduated college the tone of cannabis had been switched. Suddenly there were people talking about the medical uses for it. Chemotherapy patients were medical weed patients for nausea help. More and more states were pushing for medical marijuana. Now weed is just like taking prescription pills but better. There are states now offering recreational weed. I have friends that take cannabis oil to sleep, a topical for muscle pain or smoke cannabis flower for anxiety relief. Cannabis has been shown to do wonderful things for people. It is a kind of plant and offers great benefits. I still haven’t tried weed yet, although I am not totally against it like I was. It is amazing how different their world views cannabis now. I am guessing the government has now noticed how much money there is to be made in it.
