I have long gotten over the heartache of dealing with people who have common misunderstandings about cannabis and being a medical marijuana patient. I used to get upset and a little angry. However, I quickly realized everyone is different and how they see things is going to be different, too. It took my mom seeing me on my bad days over and over again to appreciate and understand cannabis was the number one factor to my good days. I guess another good example would be my recreational cannabis consuming acquaintances. Yes, we are all here for this wonderful plant, but the way we view, treat, and consume it is different. Some think smoking cannabis is for not dealing with the problem, being lazy, or getting rowdy on a Friday night. No, not for me and not for 99 percent of the cannabis consumers I have met in the past year. For us, it’s about maintaining overall well being. So at the end of the day, I do what I can to explain the truth around these ignorant stigmas but some people are just thick headed and I will not allow that to keep me awake at night.
