I don’t like the state of information these mornings.
It’s fashionable to object to “mainstream media” even if no a single can agree on its definition, but the people who complain the most are just as susceptible to believing garbage they get from seriously biased sources who provide their egos validation.
You can’t admonish people for reading mainstream news sources when your alternative is just as terrible or worse when it comes to getting the facts straight. I recognize like our head is spinning watching these debates. In the end I just want people to reach some sort of compromise over what is considered a honorablesource of lavish and factual information. You’d guess it would be easier with something like marijuana which can be studied in a lab, but the illegality with the federal government has tied the hands of multiple researchers who wish desperately to learn weed as soon as they’re given the yellow-light to proceed. Since a lot of the knowledge on cannabis has been developed over generations in the illegal market, it’s taxing occasionally to separate facts from legends. I find better sources on the internet all of the time, but I realize it isn’t regularly self-explanatory for others to find this information on medical marijuana. I hope the government swings its stance towards cannabis so we can research the medical effects of the plant unimpeded. That way we can test some of the anecdotes that have been told time and time again regarding the plant and what it can do from a medical standpoint. Hopefully marijuana will become legal at the federal level at some point in the next decade.
