Weed is one of the most talked about topics these days. There’s no question that many are against it because it’s a drug. Some are simply against it because of the falseness they have heard. They’ve been told that it’ll make you dumb or that it causes cancer. Let’s talk about common myths about weed that are ridiculous and completely false

1. You will become addicted

This is one of the most common myths that’s totally false. We have all heard that once you smoke, you can’t stop. You simply cannot function without it. Truth is, you can. There’s no evidence that can confirm that weed is addicting.

2. It makes you dumb

No, Marijuana will not rot your brain. Studies have been done to prove that weed has no affect on a person’s IQ. We may look stupid at times, but that’s simply because we’re high.

3.We fake the munchies

Weed does make you hungry, it’s proven. Food tastes so much better when you’re high. Our need to devour an entire pizza is 100% real.

People think that getting high causes your sex drive to decrease. In reality, it makes it much more fun! Countless numbers of weed-users say that they’d rather have high sex than to do it sober.

5. You can get high from raw weed

Save your weed and do not eat it. Raw weed will not get you high. Unless you’re cooking up some delicious edibles, put the fork down and light up.

6. It stays in your system for 30 days

For those who love it enough to smoke every day, this is true. If you’re curious and want to try it once, you’ll be clean in a matter of days.

Just like there are different types of candy, there are different types of weed. Each has their own effects, colors, and even taste. Some are also stronger than others.

This myth couldn’t be more false, especially today. If anyone still believes this, they must live under a rock. Marijuana is being legalized left and right for medical and recreational use. It’s actually known to help cancer patients and is used frequently for treatment.

No one could ever smoke enough weed, seriously. Weed is one of the few things that you can’t have too much of. Sure, you might be super baked if you smoke too much. Do not fear, you can smoke all you want!

Don’t worry, you won’t forget your favorite memories if you smoke weed. Weed does effect your short-term memory to an extent. You may forget where you put your car keys or if you ordered a pizza or not. However, you won’t forget nearly as much as you would after a night of drinking.

11. You’ll get your own set of boobs

For some odd reason, someone came to the conclusion that weed gives you man boobs. This is totally false and was announced so by CNN.

12. It’s a gateway drug

No evidence suggests that weed is a gateway drug. It may, on the other hand, lead you to overindulge on your favorite snack or to light another joint.

It is believed that our first president grew Marijuana in his own backyard. This is false, he grew hemp. Hemp is different from Marijuana.

Again, Marijuana is not addictive. If you are a heavy smoker, it can be hard to quit. This because getting baked is so much fun.

15. You can cheat a drug test

Many say that you can easily beat a drug test. This is only possible with fake urine or by using someone else’s. It is not recommended that you attempt to cheat a drug test.

I am a free spirit located in a small college town. Most of the time I am busy working towards my degree in Healthcare Management. During my spare time, I enjoy writing, reading, shopping, music and board games. Most of all, I like Cannabis. I am a firm believer in Cannabis and the good it does for people. Marijuana is my motivator, my medicine for when I'm sick, and my most favored pick-me-up. Meeting and connecting with other Cannabis lovers is a passion of mine. It's a nice feeling to know that so many people feel the same way I do on the subject.
