Cannabis in Today’s Society of Modern World
These days more and more people of all ages, professions, and social backgrounds are turning to marijuana. The reasons are both as simple and complex as the drug itself. Let’s start with a highly stressful, demanding, achievement-oriented way of life, information overload, as computers, media, and cell phones flood us with too much data to digest. Finding the time and peace of mind to relax and enjoy the moment is hard.
Our jobs get increasingly complex and technical, with multitasking as a norm in today’s workplace. There is a lot of pressure on efficiency and quality of work while the number of tasks to complete grows daily, leaving us in a continually stressful state of mind.
Also, our children are affected and strongly influenced. Computer games, TV, cell phones, and the internet keep our youth busier than ever, which converts into a constant brain rush that is mentally very stressful. The perpetual need to maintain contact with many online and offline friends and the pressure to know more and better is time-consuming, leaving little time to enjoy the natural company of family members and real-time friends. Homework and chores become boring slow duties and are often left behind while we speed on the communication and information superhighway of our days.
Marijuana is rapidly replacing pharmaceuticals as a modern drug of choice for millions. Many young and old people are worn down by the enormous challenges of living today’s lifestyle. And while the pharmacy market has been flooded with synthetic drugs for many years, like antidepressants, nerve pills, and anti-anxiety agents, more and more people of today, are finding that a simple marijuana joint works wonders on the central nervous system, especially when it comes to stress and pain relief, stimulating creativity and helping in socialization.
Marijuana is healthier and more natural than synthetic pills, easier to find, inexpensive to buy, and needs no doctor’s prescription. The plant can be easily grown from widely available online cannabis seeds. A marijuana cigarette will calm, stabilize, and focus even the most stressed, hurried individual. Marijuana smoking or eating in the form of pot brownies is increasingly common in the workplace these days. How to grow marijuana knowledge is popular and easily available in texts, books, and videos.
It is also well-known that marijuana has fewer overall side effects than most prescription drugs. This fact alone encourages today’s people to put down the pill bottle and pick up a joint. Stress is reduced, and work output is increased with the help of an abundant, although mostly illegal, plant. Marijuana, although socially yet unrecognized as such, is the new miracle drug. As we Dutchies say: “One joint a day keeps the doctor away!”
Marijuana Use on The Rise In the US
Marijuana’s renewed popularity is not limited to any single group of young people. It encompasses age, wealth, middle-class, and low-income families. It thrives in suburban, urban, and rural populations. It includes high achievers, busy businessmen, and average students. It involves every ethnicity and every kind of household. As one stoner reminded me, “Many people think it’s just low-life and troubled kids who drink and use cannabis. But it’s not.
Everybody’s doing it…” Realizing that today’s kids overestimate the side of the norm of predictions of use, they certainly know better than any adult what their friends and peers are doing. Marijuana is the most widely used soft drug in America today, and this has been the case for some years. Reasons include stress and pain relief, entertainment purposes, stopping the mental rush, and more. Nearly 90 million Americans have used and enjoyed marijuana in their lifetime; what about you?
