It’s been a hot topic ever since President Biden announced that people with federal convictions for simple marijuana possession will be pardoned.
Not only that, but he also is taking steps for the review and potential revision of how marijuana is scheduled under federal law. But, as a person who believes marijuana should be federally legal, I wanted to get a blog up and see what our small, yet growing community, had to say about the political efforts to legalize marijuana?
This is going to be a burning topic for months and probably years to come so the more the public voices their opinions the more of a difference we can make. A recent polling data from an op-ed article in TheHill.com found that nearly half of registered voters say that it should be either a “top priority” or an “important priority” for Congress to “pass a bill to legalize marijuana.”
The stigma around marijuana is still very real. It’s our responsibility to advocate for ourselves as patients that utilize this medicine. Feel free to share a story of how marijuana has helped you personally in the comments below.
Personal Note: I’ve suffered from bad migraines for years now and my favorite strain, lemon skunk, is my go-to for these due to their high myrcene and caryophyllene content. I went from being on multiple sedating medicines to only taking a much smaller dose of one of those medicines plus medicinal marijuana and I’ve had the migraines under control ever since!
