I hate when people say that!! If its not a drug why the hell am I paying 60$ for an 8th of it
Because, Federal law can screw you still. Even if your buds coming from a medicinal grower in a medicinal state. This whole MMJ card is a signup so the feds know who smokes and grows. Since people take high risk growing, dealing and transporting (NOT MMJ registered cause they dont wanna get fucked.). They all risk distribution and manufacturing charges. THATS why you pay 60 an 8th. also because you know a guy who knows a chain of middle men. pushing to more people that sell. By the time it gets to the consumer its pricey.
Find a dude who grows and get a better price bro. Or go over to the growing section here and supply
This topic comes up often, it seems.
For some reason people have a problem admitting it's a drug. They believe that they can change the definition of a word simply because there happens to be a negative stigma associated with the term.
We already know that some drugs are considered medicines, so we know that drugs aren't ALWAYS considered a bad thing. Instead of trying to change the definition of the word (it'll never happen), we should be trying to reverse the negative stigma associated with cannabis.
Unfortunately, when people go around saying things like, "It's a plant, not a drug," that is only hurting our cause. If we can't admit that it's a drug, how is anyone going to take us seriously? They won't.
I agree, But also what we are looking at is also personal crutches. People use painkillers as a crutch, some use marijuana, some use meth, some use liqour, some even use sugar (candy, chocolate.) It's not so much that it isn't a drug. It's the fact that our particular crutch is made out to be worse than others.
Why is it legal to drink literal poison in a public environment at your own will when it can kill you? But they make it illegal to drive yourself home from this public place, and even walking home can get you a public intoxication charge.
I know people who get x120 30mg Oxycodone's a month, and that is pretty much pharmaceutical heroin. He has had this script for 3 years, and he is addicted hardcore. But he can get pulled over with his 'Stash' and not get in trouble.
BUT if we have bud, in our cars, at our house or growing in our basement. We get arrested, children taken away and made out to be Drug dealers. When we don't hurt anybody, we dont ride around all fucked up like half the people getting away with it, we don't get NEARLY as fucked up as the rest of the country that does drugs and doesnt admit it, and by drugs I mean ANYTHING that ANYBODY crutches on.
Marijuana being illegal and made out to be bad all points back to the 30's when the oil industry and paper industry felt threatened by the economical usefulness of Hemp & Hemp seed oil. I forget the name of the guy who started the propaganda but I remember seeing it on the history channel.
Also there is the cigarette argument but that has been said.
THE DIFFERENCE IS WE ADMIT WHAT WE DO AND ARE PROUD OF IT.
