I undoubtedly was happy they legalized medical marijuana, but I’m really hopeful that recreational marijuana isn’t legalized
I never thought I would think it was a good idea to legalize medical marijuana. I was consistently the nerd who made a fuss about marijuana in any way shape or form. I thought it was a gateway drug that would lead to worse. I was sure that anyone who used marijuana would end up addicted to heroin, meth, or some other horrid drug that would ultimately ruin their life. When I found out that my own sister was using marijuana, I all but disowned her. She never explained to me she was using medical marijuana; but I’m not sure it would have made a difference. Once she explained that she was using medical marijuana for her pain. I knew she was in a lot of pain. She was being treated for throat cancer plus heart disease. The marijuana would not get rid of the disease, but it could help her to be more comfortable. When they officially legalized medical marijuana, my sister benefited from it. She had already begun using marijuana, but at first she hadn’t been able to go to a medical marijuana dispensary plus get her supplies. Now, with legal cannabis, she was not stuck with only smoking. She could purchase gummies, oil, plus several types of edibles. She could even get vape pens that would help her to discreetly dose out her medical marijuana. I undoubtedly was happy they legalized medical marijuana, but I’m really hopeful that recreational marijuana isn’t legalized. I guess that legalized medical marijuana is a step in the right direction. To legalize recreational marijuana is completely different, though, plus I don’t guess several people are ready for that..
