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!


If there was a single justifiable reason why cannabis is illegal, it wouldn’t be so annoying. Literally, just one specific piece of evidence to suggest that it really is worth investing billions in the control of cannabis production, distribution and indeed prosecutions. But there isn’t, and chances are there never will be.

Minnesota’s two medical marijuana manufacturers say they’re upping their outreach efforts to the medical community and would-be patients who are unaware that the drug is an option — both moves crucial for when the state extends the possibility to use marijuana to thousands of patients suffering from intractable pain next summer. Experiences like Marguerite Norton Furlong’s, who is back to traveling for work and cheering on her four children at track meets after being largely homebound by her Crohn’s disease and muscle spasms, will figure prominently in their pitch.

“With time, it’s hard to ignore so many patients and so many stories,” Laura Bultman, chief medical officer at the manufacturer Minnesota Medical Solutions.
