Cannabis has come a LONG way from the days of smoking through a coke can or a hollowed out apple. Although I'm not a smoker myself, I know several people who use cannabinoids as a means of relief of many different ailments; some treatable (PTSD, spinal injury), and some non-treatable (terminal cancer). None of them smoke. They use edibles, vaporizers, tinctures, etc. It's incomprehensible to me that so many supposedly "educated" intelligent medical professionals continue to place their faith in pharmaceutical corporations and the products they push on our society. We have been taught to believe that smoking marajuana is a gateway to other drug use, etc., which it very well may be. Yet it is a fabulous distraction from actually promoting further medical research and the production of safer and more economically viable medications. With substances such as heroin and meth rampant within cities across the US, weed is the LEAST of our problems. Its "high" time we quit with the hype, take a step back, and see how the new partial acceptance of this ancient drug might evolve.
