Changing opinions on cannabis

It is funny how views on marijuana have changed.

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

There was a section for each illegal drug and it talked all about the horrible side effects. Former addicts then would talk about how their lives were ruined due to drugs. Cannabis was one of them. Weed was negatively pushed so hard to me throughout school I was honestly a bit scared of it. I never partook in cannabis in high school. 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, but I still wasn’t planning to throw my future away. By the time I graduated college the tone of cannabis had changed. Suddenly there were people talking about the medical uses for it. Chemotherapy patients were medical weed patients. More and more states were pushing for medical marijuana. Now cannabis is just like taking prescription pills. There are states now offering recreational cannabis. I have friends that take cannabis oil to sleep, a topical for muscle pain or smoke cannabis flower for depression. Cannabis has been shown to do wonderful things for people. It is from a plant and offers great benefits. I still haven’t tried weed yet, but 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 realized how much money there is to be made in it.
