PUFF PUFF PASS
(Marijuana Isn’t That Bad)

Who remember those anti-marijuana commercials? In case you’ve forgotten or have never seen them; check out the video below.
Watching those PSAs in the 90’s as a kid was a bit terrifying.Now as an adult that understands a little more about marijuana and drugs; I find those PSAs comical and slightly misleading.
These are my opinions. This post is to entertain. I would never encourage drug or substance use. I understand that there is an issue with substance abuse and addiction that affect many lives. I am for the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana, however I believe along with the other legal substances (i.e. alcohol and prescription drugs) marijuana should be used responsibly.
With 68% of Cook County voters voting to legalize marijuana I believe we can agree that legalized and taxed marijuana is something the majority wants. To channel my inner Prince Akeem I vote “Yes!” to recreational marijuana legalization. Here are a few reasons why:
Revenue from taxing marijuana sales could fund programs, schools, and services. I hope those additional tax funds would be used for those reasons and not only fattening the pockets of politicians.
The legalization of marijuana for medical use is spreading rapidly. Simply because research shows that marijuana has health benefits. I say you’re far better off enjoying a THC infused treat or a paper plane than popping that Xanax pill for your anxiety. The side effects alone for these prescription medications are absurd . By the way you will not have to worry about overdosing on marijuana, because that is unheard of.
States have either legalized marijuana for recreational use, medical and/or decriminalized marijuana. So would you agree that the opinion of marijuana is changing?
Whether you vote yes because you are a user or because you’re an investor that does not pass up the opportunity to make some green,interest in marijuana stocks are increasing.
It’s evident times are changing. Once upon a time marijuana was gravely frowned upon by our parents, governments, law enforcement and teachers ,etc.. Now we have states that that allow recreational use and we recognize and respect the benefits of marijuana. Look, Once upon a time the production and sale of alcohol was prohibited and now it’s legal, taxed and monitored, but that is a topic I will discuss in a later post. My point is this, let’s not get all bent out of shape about marijuana. Get with the times. Do your research. If you enjoy marijuana, enjoy responsibly and respect those who don’t. If you’re against marijuana, respect those who do and don’t judge. And remember the golden rule of enjoying marijuana with your peers… puff puff pass!
