I'm a 28 year old non-binary person (they/them) with a lot to say and no idea how to get it all out.
I've Got Marijuana
A cannabis-infused edibles company that my dispensary recently started selling products from, 1906 New Highs, gave all the employees one of these pins recently that simply state: "I'VE GOT DRUGS." I wholeheartedly stand behind the concept they'd like to present with these pins. We wear them as employees in the legal cannabis industry in Colorado that interact with a drug on a daily basis in our chosen profession, and the fact that my dispensary doesn't approve of the message (and won't allow us to wear the pins at work where they are most relevant to us) really inspired me to share my perspective with others. "Drug" is not a bad word. Neither is the word "marijuana." Therefore, I feel that it's important for people to understand the history of these words, as well as why we carry certain connotations with them.
