In 2019, I'm no longer afraid to say it—I smoke a ton of weed. Well, maybe smoke isn't necessarily the right word anymore, so let me rephrase that: I consume a large amount of THC. After all, smoking weed is SO 2018. I think it's important to switch up your methods, especially when you're looking at it from a health standpoint. Smoking weed isn't necessarily conducive for your health, but intaking it in other ways is.
With Canada recently legalizing the widespread use of recreational cannabis, we are now, at least unofficially, seeing the beginning stages of the end of marijuana prohibition as we know it. The legalization in Canada remains a huge milestone in the fight for recreational green, as it's become the largest country to legalize pot, and the second country overall (behind Venezuela).
It wouldn't be a stretch to say that America might be going through an era of turbulence right now. Both sides of the political spectrum are, arguably, more at odds than ever before (not including the Civil War, obviously). Despite our differences though, we should all be able to come together and respect those who have fought to keep our country safe—our honorable veterans.
A moment of radical truthfulness here—I am not a very good driver. Like, side-swipe-your-side-mirror-with-my-side-mirror-type bad. But don't worry, I always leave a note.
The buzz around the legal cannabis industry is growing louder as the days progress. Thanks to Canada's recent federal legalization of the plant for recreational purposes, pressure has ramped up for US lawmakers to do something about its own egregious pot laws. While the legalization of hemp, the next super crop, is certainly a promising start, cannabis itself still remains a Schedule I drug.
Cannabis is on the cusp of widespread legalization, but on a federal scale, it's still considered a Schedule I substance. That means the government literally classifies it on the same level as drugs like heroin and cocaine. Obviously, some states wouldn't be legalizing it on a smaller scale if that was actually true, but it still remains a factor in terms of how the law is enforced.
