According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, over 11 million people between the ages of 18 and 25 got high smoking weed in 2015. During the years since then, not only has marijuana become legal in more areas, but the usage of the herb is also more widely accepted. Of all the “illegal” drugs—because it is still illegal in many states, even medicinally—it is used the most often. This is a no judgment zone on that account, as there are both pros and cons of marijuana legalization. However, the mistake is in believing that because it's a recreational drug and addiction rates are incredibly low, it cannot be addictive at all. While addiction to marijuana is rare, the truth is simple: If you've ever stopped to ask yourself, “Self, are you a cannabis addict?” The chances that you have a problem (and you, yourself, probably) are high.
The fascinating world of cannabis is coming out from the underground.
It's taken a while for us to get from Reefer Madness to legalization initiatives that are currently taking place in parts of America. This is a significant change, and it's one that will affect every taxpayer in the United States.
With the legalization of recreational and medical marijuana recently added to the docket for multiple states across the nation, cannabis seems to be everywhere. While many against legalization preach the harmfulness of the drug, medical studies have shown that marijuana is highly effective at treating a wide variety of previously incurable mental and physical illnesses, including post-traumatic stress disorder, Alzheimer's disease, Crohn's disease, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis, showing why weed should be legalized.
The stoner generation is upon us, growing day by day and toke by toke. As of 2018, a total of 29 states passed a ballot to legalize the use of medical marijuana. Within these rules are possession limits which are as follows: 1 ounce of marijuana, 6 plants per household, and up to 1 ounce of hash and concentrates. To all cannabis users, this is a dream. You can now relax after a hard day of work and smoke a joint or two on your couch, or by the pool, or with your friends without the paranoia of getting caught.
People may not think so, but there's a ton that revolves around weed. From the history to the art, the process, and everything in between, only those who truly enjoy cannabis can see from this perspective. And for the people who are willing to look deeper and view the artistic side of cannabis, there's a special place just for them... cannabis museums!
