this literally makes me have so much more faith in humanity. I wish this had so many more notes, people need to see and realize that marijuana is not a drug, it is a medicine, an herb, a natural plant that grows from the earth. How can alcohol be legal while marijuana is illegal and it cures people, it makes people see the beauty in life, it stops pain, it makes you happy for a while. I just don’t get it
^^^ it’s like you took the words right from my mouth.
Marijuana in no way cures cancer. It’s a strong drug that relieves pain, creates an appetite, and controls stomach pains which is why they prescribe it as a medication. The way marijuana is handed out is similar to hydrocodone. It’s illegal to own it without a prescription because it does alter the mind and has too many different effects for different people. But I’m glad this girl got through her cancer!
Alcohol alters the mind, and has different effects on every single person who consumes it. It is still legal. Hydrocodone and most other pain killers are addictive and have destroyed lives. Marijuana has helped so many people that I know personally, dealing with cancer, depression or anxiety, or even just a headache. It has also helped people I know overcome eating disorders. AND it isn’t addictive. I back dirrtyflowerchild 100%.
Alcohol isn’t illegal because prohibition already happened once in the U.S, causing crime and violence to skyrocket. My point is, is that it is a drug whether it be because it’s illegal or medical or because the substance is a plant (keep in mind, heroin is also a plant). I believe that although it may not have as much side effects as some strong pain pills, it still has enough negative outcomes (especially for long term users that start at a young age) for it to be such a hard thing to legalize for recreational use.
What she is saying is important. Marijuana can’t cure anything, please do research. (I don’t want to de-value the original post about the girl getting through cancer—- that is very good however the OP is also about marijuana “curing cancer” which isn’t feasible)
Just because someone’s parents are together, someone has a nice house, has nice clothes, isn’t poor, eats every day and has a loving family doesn’t mean they can’t be depressed, have anxiety, an eating disorder, self harm issues, or any other problem.
I can’t make anyone happy. I’m a disappointment and failure to my best friends, my band, my girlfriend, my professors, my employers, and most of all, my parents. I feel like something awful and I don’t think life is going anywhere for me I might as well die right now.
This is a distress signal.
