    Ms. MaryJane and Me

    Ms. MaryJane and Me

    I have smoked marijuana and gotten high from it but at this stage I have to ask who hasn't? My reasons for trying it were all of the usual and obvious motives to those that would be seen as being not so obvious. Beginning with the obvious reasons such as wanting to get high for the first time, wanting to fit in, simply wanting to try it to see if it would in fact somehow change you, expand your consciousness, and take you on a head trip thereby changing your whole perspective on life as we know it to be. Contrary to the stigma that marijuana has had placed upon it, marijuana really is a harmless herb that is the main subject of 100% of stoner comic duo Cheech and Chong's material. Hemp, which is another name that marijuana is known as, is used to make clothing and I have worn clothes made from hemp. If I do say so myself, the fabric it makes is very soft and it has an excellent quality. People are going to always find a way to use marijuana so it should just be legalized across the board. I am not making a groundbreaking revelation on the subject, it's just a matter of time before it is legalized. I have always been one who supports the legalization of the substance. In a previous article about an unrelated subject, I said that the hippies are right about everything including marijuana and other mind altering drugs. I consider myself to have hippie tendencies and be a hippie in the true sense of the idea. During the course of my existence on this planet I have eaten Kush Kakes which are delicious chocolate brownies that are made from hemp, and I have also smoked bongs before.

    Opinion: Cannabis Shouldn't Be Illegal In America

    Opinion: Cannabis Shouldn't Be Illegal In America

    When most people think about cannabis culture, it's not a good look. They see teenagers who pretend to smoke it so that they look "edgy," stoners who are more into getting high than anything else, and people who are obsessed with high CBD percentages - even though they don't need the weed.

    Is Marijuana Addictive?

    Is Marijuana Addictive?

    When you ask people "Is marijuana addictive?" you will hear a variety of very strongly phrased responses to that question. A lot of old, crusty men will argue "Marijuana is worse than heroin!" (Hi, Jeff Sessions!), while others, mainly stoners, argue that smoking grass is harmless and impossible to get addicted to.

    History of Hashish in the 19th Century

    Hashish, also known as hash, is a form of cannabis that cannot burn on its own. Well, it can, as all things can burn, but it does not catch fire as easily as regular pot does. It is usually smoked in either a pipe or rolled up in a joint.

    Ways Cannabis Affects Mental Health

    Once upon a time, there was an anti-cannabis propaganda film that was called Reefer Madness. As the name suggests, the entire film was about how marijuana smoking will turn you into a crazed lunatic who may end up killing people as a result of toking up.

    Let's Legalize Marijuana

    Let's Legalize Marijuana

    I first heard about marijuana in middle school. I had seen pictures of the plant on the binder of one of my classmates. Then a student named Ben did a report on it. I remembered him presenting pictures of marijuana and giving a speech talking about how users said the drug made them feel happy, but the drug was always a mystery because I had never tried it.

    Weed For PTSD?

    Weed For PTSD?

    Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, most commonly known as PTSD, has long plagued veterans. Whether it's flashbacks, nightmares, or something more sinister, PTSD has been a definite mental health problem that veterans have dealt with for decades; in the early 1900s, the closest thing to PTSD would have been what was commonly known back then as shell shock. Shortly after that, it was known as that or battle fatigue, and then PTSD became the standard term for anyone who deals with the burden of trying to cope with what may have been seen in an operational theater such as Iraq or Afghanistan.
