The Joys of Decriminalized Marijuana
Marijuana has been locked in a dungeon of lies for far too long. What joy it is for people in Colorado, California, Nevada, Maine, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, and other places that have made recreational weed legal. Medical marijuana has also been legalized in an additional 19 or so states. The real crime, as far as weed goes, is locking people up in jails and prisons for possession. The tide is turning. It’s not too soon to start openly celebrating the benefits of marijuana.
Benefits of Marijuana
The more you know about weed, the more ridiculous it should seem that it’s outlawed while alcohol is legal. It makes sense to speculate that pharmacy companies have led a quiet but passionate war to vilify marijuana, since it can reduce the need for people to buy synthetic drugs and other prescriptions. Here are a few benefits of weed:
- Marijuana has natural pain-relieving qualities. It is especially good for the treatment of chronic pain. Weed’s trick is that it changes the way nerves function. With three hits of weed, you can get the same pain relief as a synthetic painkiller. This has long been known. Queen Victoria of England was treated with marijuana for her raging PMS.
- Weed has proven to unlock creativity, according to such talents as William Shakespeare, Louis Armstrong, Jimi Hendrix, and, of course, Bob Marley, who wrote one of the best songs of all time, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.”
- Even though smoking marijuana causes the munchies, nature’s weed also provides improved metabolism that results in better weight control. In a study published in the American Journal of Medicine, results showed that people who smoke marijuana have smaller waist circumferences than those who don’t.
- Marijuana can significantly help to lower the risk of developing diabetes.
- Some studies show that the progression of Alzheimer’s disease can be slowed by weed.
- Many people suffer from inflammations and the discomfort of arthritis, and weed reduces those painful symptoms.
Health Benefits Barely Explored
Only about 6% of all studies related to marijuana have had the purpose of analyzing health benefits. Imagine what has yet to be discovered about this miracle weed. If you’ve been conditioned to consider it a substance for criminal types, there has never been a better time to study the truth about marijuana.
