So what else is legal on a Federal level while marijuana isn’t?
Well, driving barefoot is legal. Now, unless you are Fred fucking Flintstone, this is NOT a good thing. There is literally ZERO benefit to driving barefoot. And it’s actually quite dangerous. The pedals are hard and hurt your feet. It’s uncomfortable. And feet sweat, quite a bit. Which means your feet will slip off the pedal at any random time. Seriously, why would anyone want to drive barefoot? At least buy some Crocs or something. Knit a fucking sock.
But you know what DOES benefit someone’s ability to drive? Eyesight. And you know what negatively affects eyesight? Glaucoma. Glaucoma increases pressure in the eyeball (like slowly biting down on a grape), which damages the optic nerve and leads to vision loss (and it’s almost impossible to find something that’s lost when you can’t see it).
As far back as the early 70s, studies showed that when smoked, marijuana lowered the intraocular pressure in people with normal pressure AND those with glaucoma. I mean, it still didn’t help their fashion sense, but at least they could see how bad they were dressed.
And you know what else has a negative effect on driving (and life in general)? Parkinson’s disease. Marijuana has been proven to help ease tremors in Parkinson’s (http://www.medpagetoday.com/meetingcoverage/mds/39933). That is not just a quality of life issue, but a quantity of life issue as well. Other spastic disorders that affect the diaphragm and hinder breathing in people have ALSO been treated and eased with marijuana usage.
So driving, eating, talking, breathing, sleeping, LIVING has become a possibility instead of just a chore for people suffering from these disorders WITH the help of medicinal marijuana.
No word yet though if Marijuana will help you with these Tremors:
Speaking of segues, one thing that driving does, is spread people from one place to the next. So now, think of some of those spreadable people as cancer cells (the bad, evil, toxic ones, the killers, the hate-mongers, the psychos, the most horrible of horribles, and the ones who drive barefoot). The only thing worse than those people, is those people spreading their cancerous personalities/ways throughout society. And one way to stop/catch criminals trying to get away in a vehicular way is to set up a roadblock.
Well, CBD may help prevent cancer from spreading (http://m.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/marijuana-and-cancer_n_1898208). It basically sets up a roadblock and helps stop it from metastasizing all over the place. It can help prevent evil from spreading its evil ways. And there are even more studies from numerous countries that have shown marijuana to KILL cancer cells. So that’s not just a roadblock, that’s an instant execution (which I’m not advocating for in regards to people… except maybe the ones driving barefoot).
But once again, technically it’s illegal. But cigarettes, which can literally CAUSE CANCER, are LEGAL. And marijuana, which can literally help to KILL CANCER is still ILLEGAL on a Federal level.
Figure it out!
