Using marijuana doesn't make you an addictive person, what Miss Universe Catriona Gray answered in her Q&A question “I'm for being used in medical use but not so for recreational use. Because I think if people were to argue, 'what about alcohol and cigarettes?' So everything is good but in moderation." Some people used marijuana for medical purposes, as one of the users i found this www worldwide-marijuana-seeds com/collections/victory-seeds-marijuana-seeds and i think it is one of the best MJ that can help us when it comes to the medical aspects.

Marijuana is great but it's not a cure-all. THC can trigger schizophrenia in children below the age of 16, and even in adults, it should not be smoked every day all day long, as it does inhibit some blood flow to the brain. It's fine to smoke it before bed, or a few times a week, or if you have cancer all day long maybe, but when people argue it's totally "harmless" I'm just like....K.

I actually work in the cannabis industry. No, we don't get to smoke there, but I'm intimately aware of the entire process of how it's produced, and I briefly dated a grower. Some growers are unethical and destroy forests and wetlands, which is why legalization was ultimately a good thing in California, really principally for environmental reasons, but also to make it a controlled substance like alcohol. Kids smoke weed because it's easier to get on the street than alcohol. That's not okay if they're only 14.

I personally prefer edibles, and usually only eat them at night, and not every day. Occasionally I have one on a nature walk or in a hot tub, and I can verify that they certainly have a relatively mild effect that you're not going to suffer from the next day, and you can even have some insights that you otherwise might have been repressing.

Medical marijuana should be available everywhere. Particularly since non-psychoactive substances like CBD and hemp products have myriad benefits to people and our environment. I know there are downsides to legalization, especially to ethical families who grew for generations in a sustainable way, they have to scramble for all the paperwork, some of which they don't understand - they're farmers, not law students or environmental scientists. But ultimately it's for the greater good. Not just the environment and keeping it away from really young kids - incarceration rates, especially for people of color.

Marijuana can be really helpful. According to https://addictionresource.com/drugs/marijuana/marijuana-effects-on-the-brain/ it has a lot of medical benefits, such as
  • Marijuana can lessen brain bruising
  • THC can affect sleep cycles and disrupt REM sleep.
  • Marijuana has been known to cool nerves and anxiety within those who take it. However, this has to be a small dose, anything more can make anxiety worse.
  • PTSD can be mitigated with the right amount of marijuana.
  • A study published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology in 2017 suggested that people who smoke blunt could have a reduced risk of stroke.
  • In 2007, researchers at California Pacific Medical Center reported that cannabis might help prevent cancer from spreading. This is achieved by turning off the gene known as Id-1.
