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