I’m going to be honest. When I first saw the post of the day word “fry” my mind went to pot. Hah! And then it went to marijuana. Does weed fry your brain? It first made me a little paranoid (hah again!) to talk about this on my totally private blog. 🙂 such a dork.
You know that there are hundreds of articles to smoke or not. Pros vs cons. Healthy or not. Good or bad. Fries or not. Favorable statistics vs non. I’m no expert, certainly. I don’t believe it is good for growing brains to be smoking so I’m against kids smoking pot. It’s not for everyone. This is just my experience.
My husband grew up in the 70’s and was a user in the day. He’s was a hippie! I was a little aghast when he told me he smoked pot. I lectured him (years later) how terrible it was. How I would never do it. Are you kidding me? Never.
I never smoked cannabis until I was 38. I had just finished nursing school when I was introduced to it by a good nursing school friend. I was shocked she smoked…a nurse! (since then I’ve met many more). I never even knew until she told me. I gave her my uninformed opinion. She changed my mind with facts. Once I tried it I couldn’t believe the controversy. I think I was expecting a psychedelic experience. And it was nothing like drinking and being out of control.
Since then I’ve used cannabis safely for my migraines. It has worked well for me. If I have a migraine and have used my all migraine meds without effect it truly helps. It helps for pain control, nausea and sleep.
So it’s another judgement thing. I was just as guilty of judging my husband and friend until I was able to make my own informed decision. In my opinion it’s an effective tool for migraine. I’m happy to see it becoming legalized in some states and is used medicinally in others.
What do you guys think?
