Thank the good lord I live in Canada and our prime minister which has probably tried and tested it to be benificial. . I have to tell you at first I was totally agains using MJ . I was the poster child against drugs in the 1980s and MJ was one of those drugs. It was not until My son who was using told me that MJ is not a bad drug compared to pharmacueticals. I was on painkillers, anxiety meds you name it. At first I was terrified about using MJ. I had a doctor prescribe it to me. Wow! I am not even using my pain meds anymore and My anxiety pills I have decreased the dosage dramatically. I thought I was going to see the devil himself after taking weed, I thought I would be hallucinating. Oh my complete opposite! I was relaxed, pain free, and worry free for a few hours. And no craving it the next day or next few days. I could go without for days, since it is not addictive. Amazing medicine! The question is why did we not know of this "devils weed" that cures all. Its because of the negative stigma MJ has in some countries. The stigma around it is insane. U.S.A. has it classified with phentonyl, Herion, LSD, Ectasy, and cocaine liss serious a scheduale 2 vs MJ accoding the the U.S.A. Whaaaaat? How can people be misguided. MJ is way safer than alcholol! It just unbelievable that some countries have got the information wrong. So why the stigma against a natural plant that has medicinal effects. If anything these contries need to allow strains that have no or little THC content and CBD like the strain AVidekal from Tikun Olum . Kids even use AVedikal who need it. That is how safe MJ is. Actually Tikun Olum is trying to create a metered dose for pharmacuetical cannabis. Ho No wthe only research against MJ is that if a person is under the age of 25 and has a history of Pychosis etc.. that MJ may trigger the onset of pychosis etc. sooner and I am assuming they would be heavy users. And also decreases sperm count for the guy who is trying to have a family. Just amazes me that MJ has this negative stigma.
