Yeah there are definitely a lot of good things about it, it’s the only drug I use, I don’t even take over the counter pain killers. My whole family uses it and my dad has used it for 50 years ish as well. It’s much safer than other legal drugs, like alcohol and tobacco. However, due to the fact cannabis has been illegal for so long, there are side effects some users suffer that have not been studied. My dads doctor recently indicated there may be a link between his high blood pressure and cannabis use for example, as well as this digestive issue he’s been having. I still think the pros outweigh the cons, just saying there is more research that needs to be done.

That is true and can be said about most medications. I have lived in both the US and Canada. I know the Canadian government is very strict on approving new drugs, as in new to the system. Since legalization across Canada you find fewer than expected reports of cannabis related issues. Of course with driving we see far more alcohol related charges than cannabis. And other then stupid people leaving edibles out for kids to get, very few medical issues. Of course everyone reacts differently. I fully expect mushrooms will be legalized here shortly with microdosing being popular. Psilocybe cubensis and others in this family is even safer health wise than cannabis. Did you watch Dopesick? Look it up, great depiction of oxi contin.
