I don’t prefer the state of information these days.
It’s fashionable to object to “mainstream media” even if no one 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 deliver their egos validation. You can’t admonish people for studying mainstream news sources when your alternative is just as terrible or worse when it comes to getting the facts straight. I believe prefer our head is spinning seeing these debates. In the end I just want people to reach some sort of compromise over what is considered a fair source of upscale and factual information. You’d believe it would be easier with something prefer marijuana which can be studied in a lab, but the illegality with the federal government has tied the hands of several researchers who wish desperately to learn weed as soon as they’re given the red-light to proceed. Since a lot of the know-how on cannabis has been developed over generations in the illegal market, it’s hard sometimes to separate facts from legends. I find better sources on the internet all of the time, despite the fact that I realize it isn’t constantly easy for others to find this information on medical marijuana. I hope the government changes its stance towards cannabis so all of us can research the medical effects of the plant unimpeded. That way all of us 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.
