Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE a great cocktail, and I am on a first-name basis with Stan at my local wine shop, but after decades of personal anecdotal research, I can attest that Cannabis is SO much better for you than alcohol.
These ridiculous, almost funny, anti-drug PSAs did nothing to impact drug use, but they were highly effective at creating a stigma that destabilized generations of brown and black people who suffered disproportionate punishment and discrimination just for chilling out. Seriously, not funny.
It’s the stigma, stupid. If you were already old enough to vote when the phrase “it’s the [whatever], stupid” took hold, I already know a few things about you.
Now that cannabis is becoming mainstream, the paraphernalia and accessories that go with it are going through a massive renaissance. It’s ah-mazing.
