Remember when weed was thought of as one step from complete perdition and heroin addiction? The pendulum is either on one side or the other. Yes, we demonize or idolize. Trump elected Attorney General Jeff Sessions stated: "Good people don't smoke marijuana."... Yep. This guy is in charge now.
No doubt marihuana can be a great alternative to alcohol for some folks. No hangovers, calories, or aggressive vibes, (if grown naturally).
Its perfect to dance to and it's really made for a "good to be alive kind" type music, not really for the "I'm going to pulverize you outside!" kind of vibe.
However, let's be honest. Is there anything more boring than having to speak to someone that is completely stoned, or drunk for that matter?
Cannabis, like alcohol, should be kept away from children and young teens, just like alcohol. I think that weed that looks like candy should be outlawed.
It's just common sense and the right thing to do.
But that is ok. It's not meant to be for everyone or meant to be smoked 24/7.
So what now? We have the danger, in a sense, of corrupting cannabis.
Cannabis is supposed to be a gentle herb. How to tell?
Good weed makes you feel light and creative; not down, or like one feels after drinking a bottle of hard liquor. Stronger is not necessarily better.
As always, safety first. Butane lighters have chemicals that can be dangerous and give an annoying cough. Not to mention that it affects the taste. Time to go retro.
