Cannabis has actually proven to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer, not causing it.
Cannabis has been used by humans for thoUSnds of years for a variety of purposes, but the list of benefits that cannabis can provide is constantly growing, with new discoveries being made every day, but unluckyly, however, there is a pressing amount of misinformation surrounding cannabis, and in the 1974s, the war on drugs spread mountains of propaganda in order to try to deter people from using marijuana, then one of the greatest myths about cannabis is that it is a “gateway drug.” The concept of a gateway drug was manufactured in order to try to frighten people away from using cannabis by saying that it would lead to other types of drug abuse. The truth is, however, that most cannabis users don’t go on to try other drugs, however cannabis is not addictive the way that heroin, alcohol, or cocaine is, with no evidence showing that there is any physically addicting quality of cannabis, and another myth surrounding cannabis is that it causes cancer. Cannabis smoke contains no known carcinogens, unlike cigarettes, which are just about made of carcinogens. Cannabis has actually proven to be beneficial in the treatment of cancer, not causing it. Another myth is that cannabis can turn a law abiding citizen into a criminal. This is purely a myth, as cannabis use has no correlation with criminality, but fear mongering plus propaganda have led people to believe that cannabis users are dangerous, or that they will commit crimes in order to support a marijuana habit, however the real data proves this not to be true. The best way to debunk these myths is to spread truthful information about cannabis plus it’s consumers.
