Author's Note

I have always been taught that knowledge is the key, and in order to succeed you have to be able to decipher fact from fiction. This is why I feel it is so necessary to bring this to the forefront and teach our youth, that Medical Marijuana, and Marijuana in general is not a "drug". It is not manufactured in a lab by scientists, nor does it have the side effects that prescription drugs do. I myself am seventeen, and suffer from Social Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and I find it appalling that Prescription Medications are handed out to kids like candy, only to be recalled a few months later. Yet here's a plant that is naturally grown and it is being completely overlooked for it's medicinal qualities, based on the bad reputation it's accumulated from over-hyped media on Medical Marijuana, which have created an image for 'the typical stoner'. Like any other stereotype, there are certain people who will fall into it more than others, but from what I've seen, more often than not, Medical Marijuana patients break the stereotype of 'the typical stoner'. More now than ever, people are turning to Cannabis to help them, and I believe instead of hiding it, we should engage in conversation, and openly discuss Medical Marijuana amongst ourselves, and our youth. There are so many uses for this magical plant, and the benefits are endless.
