I just love the fact that a plant that grows free, like a weed, is so beneficial to my health.
That weed is legal cannabis.
And it has had an enormous effect on both my physical and emotional health. What makes it even more ironic is the fact that this weed, prior to it be legal marijuana, was so demonized. I know that I was very happy to have legal weed come to this area. It’s something that has been a long time in the making and having legal cannabis is a big deal to me. The fact that I can access a cannabis store near me is such a huge benefit. For years, I have gone the way of western medicine to deal with health problems that I think were due to emotional problems. And prior to legal pot, I had to rely on all manner of antidepressant medications. Yet, they never really were as effective as I hoped they would be. Plus, the physical side effects were overwhelming at times. It just wasn’t something that I could continue to do. Finally, one of my friends took me to a marijuana dispensary where she lived. This was a first for me. While I had experimented with recreational weed in college, I hadn’t tried it since. When I tried the legal cannabis this time, I was amazed at how I felt. There was a peacefulness and calm that I recognized right away. These were feelings I hadn’t been able to attain in decades. It was like someone was giving me my life back.
