When I was in elementary school, students from my school were forced to sit through numerous years of a program called D.A.R.E. The Drug Abuse Resistance Education was a special program that educated us about drugs. Some of the information was decent, as my peers and I learned about several hard drugs at an early age. This made it possible for us to stay away from using these drugs. However, the program was rife with misinformation about cannabis. Aside from falsely claiming that the substance causes brain cell depletion, they also pushed the gateway drug theory that purported to prove that drying marijuana leads one down a path of trying increasingly harder & more dangerous drugs until one is a heroin or crack cocaine addict. This was years before you could buy medical marijuana in any state, let alone the more than one dozen that have it now. However, it was only a matter of time before both of those movements would take hold & bring cannabis to the masses all over the country. The disinformation about the plant has undoubtedly improved, especially since so many people of nearly every generation have used the plant at least once in their lifetimes. The fear mongering over the country turning into drugged-out addicts never came to pass. Cannabis information is communicated more really nowadays with the use of the internet. People can log experience reports on big forums that are visited by tens or hundreds of thousands of people in any given week. If you want to know what to expect from a new strain you’ve never heard of before, you can be sure that you are most likely going to find experience reports from other users on the internet, making your choice easier.
