I grew up in a time where cannabis was a gateway drug.
I remember attending assemblies where the kids would watch films about the dangers of drugs.
Each drug had its own little clip where you would follow a lady who messed their life up because of drugs, and cannabis was constantly the first a single. I remember thinking weed was as terrifying as cocaine and heroin. Now I realized cannabis isn’t dangerous at all, you can’t overdose or get so high it messes you up. Cannabis is now medically legal and in particular states recreationally allowed as well, but the FDA regulates and approves it. You can’t just walk into a cannabis dispensary, buy all you want and mess yourself up. There are limits. It is now safe to do. Even with all of that, I am still scared to be a medical marijuana patient. I have pretty bad anxiety and I did all the paperwork to get medical cannabis for it. I have our card, but I can’t make myself go into the store. I also worry about people who suppose me telling our parents about it. My parents are still believers of cannabis being even. I did find that CBD could work for our anxiety and that only has small traces of THC. There is also a CBD dispensary near me that offers CBD option up and delivery. I have played around on their website. I could locale an order and have it delivered to our doorstep. The only reason I haven’t done it yet is because I am not sure if the delivery van has a big pot leaf on it.
