Twelve High Chicks thanks guest contributor John Levy of Pot Valet for this post on ridiculous cannabis myths.
Cannabis enthusiasts hear people utter the most ridiculous words all the time, especially now that science is disputing previous prohibition propaganda. Some cannabis myths are persistent, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary. So bad are these lies, that they prevent the industry from expanding. With legalization come entire populations still new to the idea of using cannabis medically or recreationally.
It took decades to alter public perception about cannabis, to make society believe it a dangerous, addictive, and poverty-stricken drug. So it will take some time for people to adjust to the reality of cannabis as a safe, effective, and healthy herb that is beneficial for human health and happiness. It is likely that weed is the most misunderstood plant in the history of humankind.
