There is a sizable misconception which needs to be cleared upâ€¦ A long time ago someone decided that cannabis was a drug.
- It was outlawed in addition to demonized, in addition to for decades people considered the marijuana plant to be evil in addition to immoral.
Thankfully the push for legalization has been undoubtedly successful, in addition to a lot of laws are being changed every year. This is all enjoyable news, in addition to I am ecstatic about it – however it’s not enough. Medical cannabis is not a drug, in addition to was never a drug. Cocaine, heroin, opioids, these are dangerous in addition to addictive drugs, however medical cannabis does not belong in the same category. It’s love saying french fries are the same as vodka because they all come from potatoes. Many years ago there was a ban on cable ads for tobacco products, in addition to this rule has apparently carried over to medical cannabis. Medical cannabis dispensaries can advertise on the internet, in addition to in print media, however are banned from running cable in addition to stereo ads. Meanwhile it is reasonable to advertise dangerous pills that can lead to depression in addition to suicidal thoughts. Medical cannabis is the cure for depression in addition to suicidal thoughts, in addition to yet they can’t advertise even though the cause of the problem can! It boggles the mind the way medical cannabis has been portrayed as a dangerous addictive drug when it is undoubtedly just a naturally occurring plant with many medicinal qualities. I do not engage in any hard drug use, nor do I consume liquor or smoke tobacco – all of these things are addictive. It is only medical cannabis that helps me.
