Breaking the stigma surrounding cannabis

Cannabis has long been a drug ingrained in American culture. The perception and stigma surrounding cannabis or “marijuana” from the time I was born to today has changed quite drastically.

My parents grew up with Cheech and Chong poking fun at the drug in their films, simultaneously while the US government scheduled cannabis in the same category as heroin and methamphetamines.

By the time I was a teenager, there was always this cultural idea that if you smoked cannabis, you were dumb or destined to be a failure that wasn’t going anywhere in life. The truth of the matter is you can be smart, can be a normal person and smoke cannabis. It is a monumentally beneficial plant that will not tank your life.

2019 could end up being the most disappointing year for marijuana legalization

Although it was predicted early on that 2019 would be one of the most significant years in cannabis reform that the United States has seen since Colorado and Washington become the first states to legalize for recreational use, the movement, at least up to this point, has been less than impressive.
