    Let's Just Legalise It Already

    Let's Just Legalise It Already

    I live in the UK, and here we have absolutely no legal method of smoking cannabis. Now, I'm not here trying to legalise it completely, because recreational smoking in large quantities can really be damaging to you — for example, making mental health conditions worse, and specific symptoms can be exacerbated, like paranoia. However, its use as a treatment of various medical conditions like glaucoma and Parkinson's disease is widely accepted in places like California. We've all seen a video or two of someone with Parkinson's having an uncontrollable fit of shaking. Their carer somehow administers medical marijuana, and the fit ends in minutes. It's miraculous to watch, so imagine being the person it's helping — it must feel incredible to get that level of relief so quickly.

    A World of Legal Drugs

    I'm Rachel, an inspiring journalist. I am going to start writing on this platform to create a portfolio. I want to write about things that interest me and may cause some controversy. I want for everyone to have their opinion on a topic and I think it's important every story gets at least two sides to it.

    Are You High Yet?

    Every single time somebody finds out that I use marijuana to ease the severe pain that comes along with having gallstones, they assume I must be talking about the CBD strain of "Mary Jane."

    Pot Advertising Hasn’t Gained Altitude with In-Flight Pubs

    Pot Advertising Hasn’t Gained Altitude with In-Flight Pubs

    As the United States adjusts to sweeping changes in marijuana laws — 26 states and the District of Columbia have decriminalized or outright legalized the herb for personal recreational use — a new green industry has emerged. Marijuana dispensaries and cultivators are actively soliciting new business in the states where it’s legal, and makers of other cannabis-related products are likewise selling their wares in a wide range of earthbound publications.
