This morning I had a long conversation with a dear friend facing a cancer diagnosis. She’s been on a ton of medication for a very long time for a variety of physical problems and is fed up with the pills. Her concern about cannabis though was one I hear a lot; i.e. I’m scared/nervous/embarrassed about using pot and getting high. Some folks still believe all the scary propaganda they’ve heard over the years and just don’t know how to take the first step. Luckily about half of the US has medical cannabis now, and if you live in an enlightened place you have access. But if a person still is filled with fear about being high, how to overcome it? Knowledge is huge here, and when people learn that cannabis can’t hurt you like opioids, or when they learn that it’s been medicine for millennia, that helps. But so many folks – who take pills and/or drink – are scared of being high. All I can say is it’s WAY better than being drunk…or in pain….or in a bad mood. Try the cannabis people – it will make you a happier, healthier human!
