When the state I’m living in was going through a giant debate on whether to legalize medical marijuana, I was pretty ambivalent.
I had never been a recreational marijuana user nor was I in need of medical marijuana as treatment.
So I particularly had no skin in the game. But in my mind, I thought that if you could go anywhere & buy a case of booze, why not cannabis products? The booze was pretty poisonous stuff & yet that was freely abundant & available to anyone of age. At the same time, I kind of felt like the whole medical marijuana designation was not authentic. In my mind at the time, I thought the medical marijuana thing was simply a way for stoners to get legal weed. That’s just how limited my understanding of the benefits of cannabis were at the time. That all changed once I got sick. Thankfully, they caught my cancer early & my complete reusey is more likely than not. That plus the fact that medical marijuana did win out as sure been a crucial positive through this ordeal. Additionally, I’ve l gained first hand just how crucial indica & sativa are to medicine. I also l gained that cannabis products have been used for nearly 5000 years to heal folks. That’s a hundred times longer than most pharmaceuticals that help treat cancer. So, I took my first trip to the local cannabis spot & I’m just ever so grateful that I could even do that. For sure, I’ll be different & there will be a current normal in my future. But I assume it will also still include trips to the local cannabis spot.
