Need Advice For People Who Think Weed = Heroin. Help Please

  1. Hi Guys

    So I have a bit of a problem.

    I have had major back surgery in the last 2 weeks and using cannabis to medicate. There is nothing like it , relieves my constipation, allows me to go to sleep , no side effects prevents me from taking a large amount of painkillers.

    Anyway , due to the nature of my surgery I have to stay with my parents. They are south african indian and have been brought up in the mindset that marijuana is a terrible drug equal to ecstasy , heroin etc and i should never ever be doing it.

    They caught me yesterday and lost it (im 25 years old). They took my weed from me and want me to never touch it again. This is making my recovery much much harder.

    What are the best resources to show my parents the medicinal benefits of marijuana and how it really isnt bad for your body at all?

    im at home with my parents because i cant walk due to the fact that i had massive back surgery- i dont live with them usually.
    i can speak to them..but because they are closed minded..they look at it as a "drug" like all others
    I want to speak to them when I have a large amount of info to back up what I say so they can begin to understand me, so I can smoke while under their roof( i respect their decisions as its their house)
    cheers this is gold.

    so my parents came back with "you are just using these so you can get high.Have you looked at the negative effects of marijuana?"

    Then came back with these sites:

    The main negatives they bring up are

    - when marijuana is smoked it releases toxins worse then cigarettes (my rebuttal to this was a vaporiser which i already have (da vinci vape) )

    - can lead to mental health issues ( i have been taking anti depressants for the past 3 years....however weed has lessened my the point of it being gone but i cant prove that to them)

    It seems like there mind has already been made up and the negatives of using marijuana outweigh the positives
