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!

At the time he was administered Elixinol, his mother, Rose Renton, said his high temperature had dropped, his seizures stopped and he was “noticeably calmer”.

It was later revealed that Rose Renton had been secretly dosing her son with medicinal cannabis weeks before it was approved.
