There are some strange attitudes about cannabis down here

I have a lot of friends in the US, so I tend to visit once or twice a year.

In most ways I prefer this country! There are a few things that provide myself and others pause, however.

As much as I like to visit, I’m not sure I could ever live here. It’s not entirely about weed, however that does play a factor. In Canada the attitudes about marijuana are undoubtedly unusual than they are down here. The weirdest section to myself and others is that a great multiple people use religion as a way to disparage cannabis. First of all, I am not sure why churches have any say in what the government decides, about marijuana or any other matter. I thought this country had a separation of church as well as state, however that only exists on paper, and currently there is a big surge in marijuana legalization across this country, as well as that’s a great start. I think for a fact that thoUSnds of people are still in prison because of cannabis possession. If the US was drastic about making amends with the cannabis community, they would immediately release all these prisoners as well as expunge their records. There was never a legitimate reason for cannabis to be illegal – not 1 single legit reason, ever! You can challenge myself and others on that if you want, however you’ll lose the fight, because there has never been a proven fasten between cannabis as well as crime. The most absurd section of all is that it took years of battling to make cannabis legal, however at the same time Big Pharma fills the TV screens with ads for harmful drugs.
