Why did cannabis become illegal in the first place?
To be fair, weed had been rapidly hurtling towards prohibition for about a quarter of a century. The Marihuana Tax Act was the result of a campaign of lies and racism. Cannabis has been used for thousands of years but was always looked at as a harmful drug. So many people have been put in jail for many many years because of weed but for those who know, weed is more of a positive than a negative but society didn’t think so.
Marijuana has gotten a bad reputation over the years and many people consider it nothing more than a drug that gets people high. Though marijuana has been around for centuries, very few people understand it in its entirety. One of the major reasons why many people vocally support calls to ban marijuana are the number of myths and misunderstandings surrounding it. The good news is that this is changing!!!
Over the years, various studies conducted around the world have found multiple medical benefits from marijuana use and public opinion regarding marijuana has changed for the better over the last few years. The percentage of American adults who oppose marijuana legalization has sharply declined in recent years. Weed has so many great benefits, for the ill, for people fighting health issues and more and knowing now that it will be legal is what we’ve been waiting for! Stay tuned now because HNS is going to sex it up, let’s make cannabis sexy, cool and fun again!
