When I was 15 our mother found a box of our marijuana stuff. I had cannabis flower and a bong hidden under our bed. I remember she ripped me a current 1 and threw all our stuff away. At that time cannabis was considered the worst drug for kids to get into. She told me how I was going to turn into a drug addict and our life would be a mess. Well fast forward over ten years later and now cannabis is legal in our state. The medical wonders of cannabis have been brought to light. My mother is going through menopause and it is taxing on her. The hot flashes and the lack of sleep are killing her. I did some research and found that cannabis particularly can help, but cannabis is known to reduce the amount of hot flashes and help a person to relax at evening for sleep. I talked to our mother about it and she was more than willing to try. Both of us have come so far. She went from telling me cannabis is the worst thing ever to saying that she would literally smoke anything to make her menopaUSl symptoms better. Since medical and recreational cannabis is legal, the two of us were able to walk right in the dispensary. The budtender was superb at finding what product would work best for our mother, then he even got her an oil that she can just put in her pop at evening rather than smoke it. It actually makes our mother recognize more comfortable to hide the cannabis.
