  1. She is so stiff and behind the times. I see new research daily on different cannabinoids. She's a stuck up yuppie who had a"profound" realization about marijuana and now wants to share her knowledge with the uneducated populace. Kinda like the upper middle class white women who think they are SJW, but are really just perpetuating racism. This lady is just the same except it's about weed instead of race and resources

  2. Thanks for the video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you ever tried – Mackorny Marijuana Paradise Blueprint (do a search on google)? It is a good one of a kind product for giving up smoking weed minus the normal expense. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my best friend Jordan got cool results with it.

  3. Very dissapointed in your ignorance, cannabis dosnt need all this ,no one overdoses, so smoke it eat it or rub it on , nature gave you a medicine that dosnt require a doctor, the plant will not cause you to overdose, why do you think it's illegal becuze you don't need a doctor , it that easy …booksmart =1,,,,,,,common sense =0

  4. I think the added temporary interneuronal synapse connections thanks to marijuana and especially the psychedelics are literal wiring upgrades to our brains that can be made permanent through normal neuroplasticity learning. These new connections give parts of our brains new access to both our current sensory perceptions, heightening them and making us more appreciative of everything we experience, while also giving parts of our brains new access to memories making even our memories heightened with literally new mental perspectives on them. It’s like a physical empathy, giving our brains the ability to have new and more diverse perspectives on everything, past and present.

    These substances widely have the reputation as creativity-enhancers but I think actually they’re empathy-enhancers creating new perspectives, giving artists greater ability to imagine how a wider audience will perceive their work while it’s in progress, making it more creative as a result.

    Legalize, release, expunge and give industry advantages to the minorities most harmed.
