The History of Weed.
First things first, a drug is a drug is a drug. Just because a drug like marijuana is illegal, does not make it better or worse for you. The reason a drug is legal or illegal mostly depends on money. Alcohol, Lipitor and Prozac are no better for you than marijuana. Weed is much better for you than alcohol. Yet alcohol is legal and marijuana is illegal so it is stigmatized.
What I can’t figure out is how cigarettes are legal. Here is a list of all the additive chemicals in cigarettes. The only way they keep this lawful is sheer lobbying power. We all know how bad they are yet we allow them to be sold all across the world. Often in locations people are forced to go daily (-E.G. gas stations and supermarkets). No smoke is good for your lungs never mind adding nearly 600 chemicals to physically make you crave more with every puff. Thats chemically manipulative marketing and it’s immoral. If your going to smoke tobacco make it “natural” or “addictive free”.
One great invention in recent years is the vaporizer. Vaporizing does not burn your chosen substance, it heats it up just enough to the point where the desired chemicals are released from the plant. Much better for the lungs.
