A Gain For Stoners
For decades, cannabis activist have been fighting the government for the truth about marijuana. Decades after decades, our federal and state government have been cracking down on the use and possession of cannabis. Those individuals who are caught possessing cannabis usually receive jail time, fines and a tarnish record. Many cannabis users received punishment worst than those received by rapist and murderers. Where is the logic and justice in that? Well let me tell you something, justice is absolutely fucking nowhere to be found in this world. Hatred for cannabis was the offspring of racism and corporate greed after they had a one-night stand. With all the lies that we were told, some may wonder, is cannabis really harmful to our health or just harmful to the pockets of government officials. The only reason why these anti-cannabis government policies still exist is because of the vast amount of unknowing supporter that our government has on the subject. It’s so easy for people to be manipulated by the media and government; all it takes is one lie from an outspoken politician. Regardless of the lies that were told by the government, I believe that cannabis can be beneficial to human health. For one, cannabis is used in a wide range of medicines to fight off cancer, mental and physical issues. There has also been a substantial amount of evidence that opposes government view on marijuana. These studies have proven that our politicians are a bunch of lying sacks of shit. Hell they even had a credible source lie for them just to get supporters for their anti-cannabis cause. As mentioned before, cannabis is used to combat a good amount of diseases, pain and disorder. There are medicines out there produced by big pharmaceutical that are cannabis base. These medicines are used to treat cancerous symptoms, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and etc. Medicine such as Sativex contains a high amount of THC and CBD, which has proven to be affective against neuropathic pains. Sativex not only fight neuropathic pain but also spasticity, which is when certain muscles continuously contract. Speaking from personal experience, chronic pain can truly be fought off with the use of THC. Cannabis has also proven to be helpful for patients with cancer and AIDS. Unimed Pharmaceutical developes a medicine call Marinol for this purpose. It can also lend a helping hand to patients who are in recovery from brain related surgeries and injuries. Usually it is used for memory recovery for these types of patients. If marijuana is truly as harmful as other heavy narcotics then why use it in medicine. Herb.com believes that big pharmaceutical started producing cannabis base products because they were losing to medicinal marijuana. They’re not wrong about that analysis. The old saying “if you can’t beat them, join them” is really being applied by big pharmaceutical. These companies might be smart with the direction they’re going in but all that their actions proves is that marijuana is truly beneficial to human health. These attempts at the medicinal marijuana market by big pharmaceutical are just another effective piece for pro-cannabis activist to use in an argument. All that is shown is how effective marijuana is in health benefits. Some of the big pharma companies have tried to recreate the effects of marijuana through the use of synthetic thc. We all know that nothing synthetic is as good as the original. This is not being said out of my ass, it has been shown on numerous occasions that synthetic THC is dangerous. On June 11,2015 Newsweek reported that since January to May of that year 15 people reportedly died from synthetic marijuana. When was the last time you heard someone dying from actual cannabis? I’ve never heard any of such a thing. Aside from the medical marijuana industry, there have been a number of researches and studies that have proven our government false. Time magazine reported that a team of Canadian and US researchers found evidence that point to cannabis benefiting humans. Their research was published in Clinical Psychology Review. According to the research, the use of marijuana can benefit people suffering from social anxiety and PTSD. So not only does marijuana solve chronic pain it also might help certain people get laid. Is that really so bad? The same research team also found some sign of marijuana being able to fight of addiction. I know it’s ironic with it being a Schedule 1 drug and all. I believe that this is somewhat true. I have a friend who I for privacy reasons will not disclose his name; have used marijuana to combat his addiction with meth and cocaine. After a very short amount of time the addiction for those heavy narcotics were gone and he himself was not addicted to marijuana either. To add some more evidence, on December 7, 2016 Weed News reported that Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health stated that marijuana might be effective against Opioid addiction. With all these benefit who can hate marijuana? Even Steve Kerr a man who stated that his body does not “agree” with marijuana condone the use of medicinal marijuana for athletes instead of drugs like Vicodin. “I would hope so, and I'm not a pot person. It doesn't agree with me. I tried it a few times, and it did not agree with me at all. So I'm not the expert on this stuff. But I do know this: If you're an NFL player, in particular, and you got lot of pain, I don't think there's any question that pot is better for your body than Vicodin,”(Steve Kerr). Steve Kerr is a powerful individual and for him to state such a thing means a lot about the benefits of cannabis. The benefits of marijuana range from minor pain to cancer itself. Leafly stated that many Oncologists recommend the use of marijuana to combat tumors and other cancerous symptoms. They also stated that our politicians with held knowledge of marijuana being a natural cure for cancer just to fill up their bank accounts. Somehow I don’t find that surprising. Like every government, ours is comfortable with lying to the public regardless of who it effects, just so the politicians can buy a new mansion while us peasants pay for the consequences of their actions. Through out the pass hundred years, our government has lying to our faces and never revealing the true purpose behind the war on cannabis. In the early 1900s anti- marijuana campaign were aimed at Mexicans because of the mass immigration that occurs after the Mexican Revolution of 1910. Those anti-marijuana campaigns were not made for the purpose of criminalizing weed but more so to criminalize the Mexican immigrants that were replacing white individuals in the work place. Mexican immigrants were labeled as “marijuana menace” during this period. The base of the war on cannabis is racism and not the “protection” of US citizen. As time progress things only got worse. In the 1930s, Harry J. Anslinger the Head of the FBN hired a pharmacologist Dr. James Munch who stated, “After two puffs on a marijuana cigarette, I was turned into a bat". Okay there are two things wrong with his statement. One, it’s absolutely bullshit because the last time I went to a dispensary there were no bats anywhere to be seen. Two, he only took two hits. He has what I like to call “Pussy Lungs”. All jokes aside, this guy was no expert and his actions caused cannabis users to be criminalized even worse than before. There was no evidence showing that marijuana is harmful to human health. It was all a lie from the start so I highly doubt that marijuana is as harmful as meth or heroin. The DEA classifies marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, which puts it on the same playing field as Bath Salts, meth, LSD, and MDMA. I’ve never seen a single person overdose on marijuana or suffer the same damage as meth or LSD. All these lies made us believe for decades that marijuana is something you should never touch. Countless people were indirectly denied access to a drug that could’ve saved their lives. I know for a fact that marijuana is beneficial to human health. I have a left shoulder injury that caused me pain every time I do heavy lifting. On November 02,2016 I received a recommendation for medical marijuana by M.D Thomas Heric and after a month of usage the pain was slowly fading away. Thanks to medicinal marijuana I’m now only dealing with a minor pain in my left shoulder instead of what it use to be. I’m sure that with more time it would be completely gone. During my usage I noticed that marijuana is effective in fighting insomnia as well. Depending on what strain you get your insomnia issues might be fixable. Marijuana can also be used to combat the lost of appetite. Speaking from personal experience, every time I used medicinal marijuana a food deliverer has a job to do. So not only is marijuana benefiting you, its also providing people with jobs in the food delivery service. I would consider that a “win” for everyone. Marijuana provides a feeling of euphoria, which can help many people out of depression and prevent certain individual from taking their own life. I’m no expert but one thing I’ve learned from this experience is that marijuana is truly a miracle drug. It’s sad to see when people with a lack of morals, honor and integrity twist something good into something dark and evil. Marijuana is a drug that is can help countless people, it should not be kept from us and we should not be criminalized for protecting ourselves when our government has failed to do so. Although cannabis can be beneficial to human health, like all drug it should be used with moderation and not be abused. Just like all drugs there are consequences to using cannabis, one being the inability to drive while you’re on the drug the other, being temporarily stupid. These side effects wear off after the high wear off. You shouldn’t abuse the drug unless you want to consistently be a dumbass. It might work if you’re auditioning for the next Jack Ass but not in your regular every day life. However, that should not stop you from using just make sure that every thing comes with moderation. If used correctly marijuana pose no threat to our health at all but instead might just save our life.
