Even after it has been legalized by the government.
Currently, there are approximately 40 states that have legalized the use of medical marijuana and there are millions of Americans who use natural medicine to cure or help with various illnesses. These illnesses range from chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s disease, insomnia, PTSD, depression, epilepsy, and so much more. And many doctors within the medical industry have now become open to recommending the drug for their patients’ illnesses. So, with medical marijuana being so widely used, you would think that the stigma for the drug has been reduced. And perhaps it has, but there are still many people who judge those who use holistic practices to cure their pain. Part of the reason for the bad wrap is that marijuana has been viewed in a negative way for so many years. After all, it was a popular street drug which is what most of us associate with it. I find that it’s a generational thing. The younger kids are completely open to the use of marijuana both recreationally as well as medicinally. But older folks like my parents, still view marijuana as nothing more than a street drug. Even after it has been legalized by the government. Some people who use medical marijuana have even admitted to feeling ashamed when using the drug to treat their illnesses and it’s all because the drug is still being scrutinized by so many. Personally, I don’t use medical marijuana and I have never used the drug, but if I had a chronic illness, I would rather take medical marijuana versus taking prescription drugs. In my opinion, the natural remedy is always the better way to go.
