It is 114 times safer to smoke pot than it is to drink alcohol. Once again another study out in favor if marijuana. It seems pot has been getting a bad rap for way too long.
The United States has know for some three plus decades that medical marijuana was a good alternative to pill medication when dealing with some diseases. They’ve know so well that they took out a patent on medical marijuana and then moth balled it.
What has been taking place is the systematic stereotyping that marijuana is bad when in reality it gas its merits. The DEA had for decades been trying to keep everything hush, hush because they didn’t want the general public knowing of marijuana’s benefits. Most of your pharmaceutical companies have been doing their best to keep it quiet as they didn’t want to lose the money that they have been making on inadequate medicines.
