  1. Its amazing our country is so divided currently…yet progressives and conservatives find unity around a plant…unless you live in Indiana and continue to support a governor who can get elected again going against 80+% of the the state….

  2. I don’t have to take my 300 dollar insulin shot because I smoke a gram of weed that’s 10 bucks 🙃🤷🏽‍♂️that keeps my sugar in check 🙏🏼

  3. Sitting here in October laughing my tail off at ANYONE putting their faith in the democratic party.
    They are the original slavers and racists. They are BIG fans of the prison industrial complex as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Why would ANYONE think that they would be in favor of legalizing it?
    Ahhh, o well, thanks for the laugh.

  4. It will not happen this year. In fact, I do not see it happening in the next five years. Many laws pertaining to cannabis, both state and federal,  have to be repealed before there is any legalization at the federal level. But my own theory is that according to the constitution, the states that have made recreational legal, can challenge the cannabis laws as a states rights issue if the federal government challenges or tries to enforce federal laws in the legal states.

  5. The most dangerous risk associated with Cannabis is getting arrested!

    Let's stop fining people, giving them criminal records, locking them up, and seizing their personal property over a plant!

    Hey, we need your support… can you help us out?

    The Medical Benefits of Caryophyllene
    Studies on caryophyllene indicate a wide variety of therapeutic potential. A 2014 study shows pain-relieving properties of the terpene in mice, and another rodent study showscaryophyllene's potential to reduce alcohol intake, making this terpene a possible treatment for addiction.

    (Pharmaceutical Companies will never support or acknowledge this information it's up to you to educate yourself for you and loved ones health)

    helps with withdrawal symptoms I had heard sativa helped anxiety and I thought that does not sound right but I find myself at home an illegal state and indica was never around so I used what I had but was fearful actually I smoked one to see how it was and it would make you jump out your skin so to speak means it was very intergetic sativa and my heart pains and anxiety were at there worse, I took an ounce and used amount of PGA to cover bud and made the tincture as strong as possible, 1 o.z. and the amount of PGA used only filled up approx 2/3 of a tinctureure bottle, I dosed a full dropper full each time my heart pain returned and within 3 minutes my heart pain would stop I did not even complete the tincture before my heart pain subsided and never returned, the U.S. has had a patient on cbd and thc sence 2003

    After being healed and knowing the truth that the addictive pills kept me going back to the pharmacy and doctors door every month before finding real medican with cannabis you control your health noone else and if dose correctly with the right type sativa or indica and the right strains with the right delivery systems there is not a disease it cant inprove and in most cases cure all correct! When your body says this is right do it! It is always right!
    pharmaceuticals are designed to never cure anyone only adiction the real crime being committed is unable to medicate with a harmless plant that can cure diseases totally if pharmaceuticals will not cure a person and a plant will with no harm then anyone on God's green earth should be able to heal themselves with gods plant.

    edit: left arm reconstructed titanium accident x-ray was from approximately 4 years ago started edible cured all opioids 2017 used tincture in july-2018 and never had another heart pain or heart attack and have 4 prior stents fit can walk jog run up to 10 miles a day recovered neuropathy! i used RSO oil from jan to june 2019 then back to edible to treat another health issue.

    Teenagers and young adults who use marijuana may be messing with their heads in ways they don’t intend.
    Evidence is mounting that regular marijuana use increases the chance that a teenager will develop psychosis, a pattern of unusual thoughts or perceptions, such as believing the television is transmitting secret messages. It also increases the risk of developing schizophrenia, a disabling brain disorder that not only causes psychosis, but also problems concentrating and loss of emotional expression.
    In one recent study that followed nearly 2,000 teenagers as they became young adults, young people who smoked marijuana at least five times were twice as likely to have developed psychosis over the next 10 years as those who didn’t smoke pot.
    Another new paper concluded that early marijuana use could actually hasten the onset of psychosis by three years. Those most at risk are youths who already have a mother, father, or sibling with schizophrenia or some other psychotic disorder.
    Young people with a parent or sibling affected by psychosis have a roughly one in 10 chance of developing the condition themselves—even if they never smoke pot. Regular marijuana use, however, doubles their risk—to a one in five chance of becoming psychotic.
    In comparison, youths in families unaffected by psychosis have a 7 in 1,000 chance of developing it. If they smoke pot regularly, the risk doubles, to 14 in 1,000.
    For years, now, experts have been sounding the alarm about a possible link between marijuana use and psychosis. One of the best-known studies followed nearly 50,000 young Swedish soldiers for 15 years. Those who had smoked marijuana at least once were more than twice as likely to develop schizophrenia as those who had never smoked pot. The heaviest users (who said they used marijuana more than 50 times) were six times as likely to develop schizophrenia as the nonsmokers.
    So far, this research shows only an association between smoking pot and developing psychosis or schizophrenia later on. That’s not the same thing as saying that marijuana causes psychosis.
    This is how research works. Years ago, scientists first noted an association between cigarette smoking and lung cancer. Only later were they able to figure out exactly how cigarette smoke damaged the lungs and other parts of the body, causing cancer and other diseases.
    The research on marijuana and the brain is at a much earlier stage. We do know that THC, one of the active compounds in marijuana, stimulates the brain and triggers other chemical reactions that contribute to the drug’s psychological and physical effects.
    But it’s not clear how marijuana use might lead to psychosis. One theory is that marijuana may interfere with normal brain development during the teenage years and young adulthood.
    The teenage brain is still a work in progress. Between the teen years and the mid-20s, areas of the brain responsible for judgment and problem solving are still making connections with the emotional centers of the brain. Smoking marijuana may derail this process and so increase a young person’s vulnerability to psychotic thinking. (You can read more about how the adolescent brain develops in this article from the Harvard Mental Health Letter.)
    While the research on marijuana and the mind has not yet connected all the dots, these new studies provide one more reason to caution young people against using marijuana—especially if they have a family member affected by schizophrenia or some other psychotic disorder. Although it may be a tough concept to explain to a teenager, the reward of a short-time high isn’t worth the long-term risk of psychosis or a disabling disorder like schizophrenia.

  8. The reason it's illegal is because we live in a society and weed is too natural, Black market exists because of supply and demand but a small vocal minority controlled a narrative a long time ago politically and we can't make intelligent amendments to the constitution to elect someone who can change this. Yang 2020 let's secure the bag and our rights.

  9. I hope so my wife is going to leave me and take my kids because I smoke weed for my neck pain since I started smoking I lost 70lbs she just cant stand to see me happy

  10. Marijuana was legal in the early 30's it became illegal because of racist laws and dumb reasons knowing very well its completely safe if its becomes legal again that's gonna be great for a lot of people that need it
