Anyone who smokes (tobacco or cannabis) shouldn't, for numerous obvious physical and mental health reasons.

Most people use alcohol, cannabis and tobacco to reduce anxiety. Surely there's enough things in modern life to make us anxious. While it is true that a certain level of anxiety is natural and desirable, there is a huge, systemic, unrecognised (and actively denied) problem in that most people use caffeine every day of their adult (and sometimes adolescent) lives. This is a sleep disruptor, drives tiredness (and so road accidents), drives restless legs syndrome (immediate reduction and longer term increase of symptoms), drives road rage, aggression, domestic violence and probably war-making decisions by politicians.

Im going to take issue with these statements regarding cannabis consumption. First, I do agree that SMOKING cannabis is detrimental to health due to ingestion of combustion byproducts. However, the consumption of cannabis by vaporizing or ingesting the plant via edibles or oils has shown to be beneficial for pain control and PTSD issues, among many other ailments. There are various studies and anecdotal reports regarding the use of cannabis to reduce, or in some cases completely eliminate, the use of opioids and the dangerous anti-depressants that the allopathic doctors want to get you on for life. I sincerely believe this is why the medical/pharmaceutical cartel throws such a great sum of money lobbying against legalization. Im disgusted that this reefer madness mentality still exists, and that folks still blindly believe these myths.

There is no way cannabis should be lumped into the category of opioids, and even alcohol. Please educate yourself about the medicinal qualities of cannabis before stating such generalizations. A great place to start is
