Cannabis - good for so much!At The Chad Smokeshop 420, we believe cannabis should be legalized across the board. While we wait for that glorious day, we must become educators of those less knowledgeable regarding the use and benefits of cannabis. Some people have crazy misconceptions when it comes to cannabis because nobody has ever explained the truth behind the myth.

It’s up to us to explain the truth, so we found a great article by Legalize it! We Think. The article, seen below, puts together the most common myths and the facts to discredit them! What a handy tool in our drive for legalization! Share it at will!
