When our parents were young, marijuana wasn’t used to treat medical conditions.
If people were using marijuana, it was considered a celebration drug; Unfortunately, the stigma has not changed much over the past four decades. My parents still think that marijuana has easily little medical use, but even though there are hundreds of studies that prove marijuana has several medicinal benefits, our parents are still uneducated! When our dentist prescribed marijuana to help with anxiety as well as PTSD, our parents were easily confused. I tried to explain how the marijuana would help, however they didn’t understand, luckily, the hospital downtown offers a cannabis education class. They offer the cannabis education class for free every Thursday afternoon. The class is only an hour long, however the healthcare professionals discuss all of the positive benefits from using marijuana to treat a number of illnesses. My Dad wasn’t keen on the plan at first, although she decided to attend the education class with me. I guess the cannabis education class really helped, because our Dad was paying attention the entire time. They covered a lot of questions as well as even did a Q&A session at the end, and on our way home, our Dad asked a lot more questions. I hope the cannabis education class will ease her mind as well as fears. I guess that she is distraught about our health, although I guess that cannabis is a much better answer than any type of prescription drug. Many of our friends are using xanax, pain pills, or psychoactive drugs to treat illnesses. I’m happier to use an herbal treatment that has been to be effective.
