Many researchers have concluded that marijuana or cannabis as you call it has a variety of health benefits especially for critical health issues like a severe and persisting pain, Parkinson diseases and many more. But on the other hand, there are massive rumors on the ill effects of the same on the public.
Thus, you must be confused as to what is true out of the two. What is it that the big shots of the pharmaceutical industry as well as the government are trying to keep from us?
THE GRAND DECEIT
Common knowledge holds that marijuana will lead young minds to experiment with harder, more dangerous drugs - as a “gateway”. While there may be some truth to this for some, the paranoia that led cannabis to be compared to the likes of meth and crack has been thoroughly discredited. Various studies suggest that marijuana is has a significant positive effect on children that suffer from neurodegenerative disorders and seizures. However, long term results are not yet available mainly due to the long prohibition.
MAINTAINING A SAFE POSITION
Any company would obviously want to stay miles away from the target watch list of the federal government. Supporting the cause of complete legalization of Marijuana is nothing harmful but, it is wise enough to take safety measures through VPNs, proxies etc.
The major lobby interests on the side of prohibition may have a great deal of influence, but the tide of public opinion is slowly shifting. For many, it’s no longer about the drugs; it’s about ending this forsaken war.
THE FEARS OF BIG PHARMA
Inflammation-based diseases are huge money. Whether prescription treatments for autoimmune syndromes, chronic pain, or arthritis. On the other hand, many anti-inflammatory drugs like NSAIDS can cause damage to the stomach, liver, and kidneys. There is a market for sound alternatives.
Certain cannabinoids can produce anti-inflammatory benefits without the side effects, posing serious competition to a staple of the drug industry. Moreover, it’s way cheaper, and can’t be patented. Big pharmas have every reason to pander to regulators to keep weed illegal. Apparently they haven’t gotten the memo that this is the information age.
