yeah I heard of those things too. For some reason I assumed these could distractions from the most shameful reason, but I know for a fact that pharma also hates weed.
marijuana reduces painkiller abuse. Or at least painkiller abuse went down in states that legalized marijuana.
Marijuana is good for pain, epilepsy, seizures, mood/behavioral disorders. Withdraw effects are none physically. It’s not good for driving or operating heavy machinery though. It can reduce withdraw effects and cravings of other drugs.
Painkiller abuse is deaths favorite pastime. People that get injured eventually find out painkillers feel really good, and make their problems go away. Painkillers suffocate the body by suppressing your breathing reflex even if you cling to life, you can have reduced brain function from hypoxic conditions.
Painkillers are addictive because the withdraw makes people feel hot, and in pain, and tingling all over, they might be manic or delusional, with general dysphoria. They can make all this terrible stuff go away by just taking another painkiller.
I think weed killed someone once. A bail of it landed on him and broke his neck. Lol jk, actually weed might be responsible for a concerning amount of motor fatalities, and cardiac events. Weed does raise blood pressure, for 15 minutes or post hit, so if you have heart concerns you might not want to be inhaling stuff.
