Marijuana


So...Did you hear about Charlo Greene? She's the news anchor from Anchorage AK KTVA-TV news station who officially "dropped the mic" and quit her job on live TV. Why? For the green(e) pun intended.
Sunday evening, Greene was covering a story on the Alaska Cannabis Club, a medical marijuana advocacy organization that links patients to specialized medical marijuana dispensaries. After reporting her story she informed viewers that she is in fact the owner of the organization. She also stated “Now everything you’ve heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska.” “And as for this job, well, not that I have a choice but, f–k it, I quit.” She then walked out....deuces! Check out the video here.
As you may or may not know, the on going battle for legalizing marijuana is occurring all over. Some people are all for it, and then of course there are people who are completely against it. Yes, there are more accidents and fatalities involving alcohol, which is legal vs. marijuana, and yes there is a total stigma when it comes to knowing who does and who doesn't like to smoke, but what I want to know is, where so you stand? Do you think marijuana should be legalized? Why or why not?
If you do your research you will see that there are a numerous amount of articles and information that share the pros of cannabis and all of its health benefits that it has to offer.

Did you see the video about Charlotte? A 6 year old Colorado girl who uses marijuana daily? She has a rare form of epilepsy resulting in violent seizures..usually around 300...A WEEK. After nothing working and numerous ER visits her mother decided for her daughter to try cannabis oil (a strain that has a very low THC level which is the mind altering ingredient). By mixing it in Charlotte's food Charlotte now only has 2-3 seizures a week and is able to dance and play. A huge difference from not even being able to walk prior to treatment. So is pot helpful or harmful?
Charlotte is not the only child to be treated with cannabis either. There are a number of children in Colorado who hold medical marijuana cards, and the youngest? Less than a year old.
 So I'll ask you again.
 Where so you stand? Also, would you ever think about treating a child with cannabis?

  2. I've seen Charlotte's story on TV. That news anchor is awesome. I think the issue of legalizing marijuana is a moral issue. Would I want my child or husband suffering? No, I wouldn't. But I think I would have a moral issue with OKing the use of drugs even in a medical situation.

    1. Thank you so much for voicing your opinion! I was starting to believe that no one was going to state their opinion because this topic is still considered "taboo" for the most part. I was curious to see if anyone would actually mention what side they stand on, so thanks for being the first!

    1. I know, right?! I wish I could have been in that news room after she walked off to see everyone's faces and reactions!

  4. Okay that is kinda funny she did that on live TV. I personally do not approve of drugs for myself. It was a drug that affected me personally from a family member I loved. On that note though it is a personal decision for each person.

    1. Totaly understandable! I think it is so great that you shared your view on the topic. I was quite nervous about posting this as I wasn't sure how people would react but my whole point of this post was that I wanted people to share their opinion and what their views are. I'm glad you shared!

    1. You both are absolutley right, it is different for everyone whether they agree or not. I completley understand how drugs can affect not only the person who does drugs but also the people that love them. I too have had someone close to me affected by drugs and it is a horrible and heart breaking thing to see one go through. Thank you so much for sharing your view.
