Recreational Vs. Medicinal Marijuana

Recreational Vs. Medicinal Marijuana

In any part of the world where we have seen how laws change in favor of marijuana, we see it with medical marijuana in mind (although many of us use it recreationally).

The Most Popular Recreational Drug In The World


Marijuana has been listed as the most popular recreational drug in the world for a long time, although its first use dates back to medicine.


Human beings have always liked Human beings have always liked marijuana, whether for fun or religious and even spiritual purposes.

Different Medicine

Finally, until the legalization of marijuana, there was no real reason to experiment with different medicinal strains.

As a result, this global revolution toward the legalization of marijuana has given people around the world a better understanding of what they buy before consuming it.

So, when we talk about medical marijuana, we usually talk about the different strains and methods of administration. The choice falls entirely with the user, whether he uses it medicinally or recreationally.


The Different Ways Of Consuming Marijuana

The oldest and most popular form of consuming marijuana is smoking it. In the first days of grass, when we did not have all the great tools we have now, all we had was a bud and a leaf to roll it up.

Because of the risks involved with burning and inhaling any smoke, smoking is not the recommended way to use medical marijuana. It is more widely accepted that a medical marijuana patient consumes edibles, oils, dyes or vaporizers. What is being treated usually plays a vital role in deciding the method of ingestion. Users of recreational marijuana are also taking advantage of edible and drinkable marijuana.

Is Everyone Using Medicinal Cannabis?


The undeniable truth is that marijuana has medicinal benefits, which indisputably means that everyone is using medicinal cannabis.


The grass is a medicinal plant! So even users who use recreational marijuana are getting the benefits of medical marijuana, even if they do not know it!

There is no way to get the medicinal properties of marijuana, and that is why it has made its spectacular return through the medical industry. The trick is to use it responsibly!

From Today Uruguay Begins The Sale Of Marijuana For Recreational Use

About 5,000 people registered with the Institute for Regulation and Control of Cannabis to purchase the drug in the sixteen pharmacies that will begin the sale today. The cost will amount to $ 6.5 per five grams.There are about 5,000 registered in the register to buy marijuana in the sixteen licensed pharmacies.

Sixteen Uruguayan pharmacies will sell recreational marijuana as of today, to local consumers who previously registered in the Cannabis Regulation and Control Institute (IRCAKA), which totals almost 5,000 people, of whom 70% are men, and the cost will amount to $ 6.5 per five grams.

With the implementation of this measure, Uruguay will complete the regulation of the law on production, marketing, and distribution of marijuana that was approved in December 2013, and that enables three ways to access cannabis: self-cultivation in homes; cooperative farming in clubs and sale in pharmacies.

After three and a half years, the country will become the first nation in the world to regulate the sale of marijuana for recreational use from start to finish.

In the beginning, users will be able to access 5-gram containers although it is expected that in the future there will be presentations of 10 grams of the Alfa I and Beta I varieties with a content of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component of the plant, which Round 2 percent. Both will come packaged in their natural state, dried, without grinding or pressing.

Once the sale begins, registered persons will be able to access 10 grams of cannabis flowers per week in pharmacies without revealing any personal information, since they will use their fingerprints to do so. It will be the system that indicates if the dispensation is authorized, as well as the number of grams allowed in that operation.

Medicinal Cannabis

After a tireless struggle of patients, relatives and civil society, the National Congress approved the Law that regulates access to medical marijuana.

It was not easy. It had to overthrow enormous prejudices. But finally, on March 29, the Senate of the Nation turned into a bill the bill that already had half a sanction from the Chamber of Deputies. It is not the best law, but it is a big step, at least to guarantee access to people who require cannabis for their treatments. The self-cultivation is pending, which was not contemplated by the Law and which continues to leave hundreds of cannabis growers in solitude who are currently supplying many patients.

Anyway, it is a victory for all of us who have committed ourselves to this fight, and in this sense we send our congratulations to organizations such as CAMERA - Medicinal Argentina Banana - and Mama Cultiva, and we greet those who in one way or another they have collaborated, as doctors, cannabis growers, different organizations, and media.

Canada Prepares To Legalize Marijuana Use In July 2018

Toronto (Canada), Nov 5 (EFE) .- Canada is preparing to make reality one of the most controversial electoral promises of the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, and legalize in July 2018 the recreational use of marijuana, which will turn Canada into the most significant industrialized country where cannabis is entirely legal.

The bill that will legalize the recreational use of marijuana continues its course in the Canadian Parliament, with the aim that by July 2018 the legislation has been approved and is underway.

The Canadian House of Commons is studying the proposal of the Trudeau Government, and it is expected that the deputies will approve the C-45 bill, as it is known, without significant problems, since the Liberal Party of the Prime Minister has a majority of deputies.

But Trudeau’s plans could encounter more problems when the bill reaches the Senate later this year.

Several senators have already expressed their doubts that the Upper House feels the same obligation as most of the deputies for the legislation to be approved in July 2018, as Trudeau wants.

Independent Senator Andre Prate declared last week that the July 2018 date is a “political limit” that senators are not required to comply with.

Paradoxically, the possible blockade, or at best, the slowdown, of Bill C-45 is the result of another promise that Trudeau made during the electoral campaign two years ago: that the Liberal senators would be independent of their party.

Until Trudeau came to power at the end of 2015, senators were subject to party discipline, be it the Liberal Party or the Conservative Party. But Trudeau freed liberal senators for the sake of democratization of the Upper House.

Measures Of Legislation

The group establishes that marijuana is not sold in the same ones that other narcotics offer , such as alcohol or tobacco . It is contemplated, however, the creation of rooms where you can smoke cannabis.

A report prepared by public health experts tends to recommend the legal minimum age for consumption in 21 years, although the brain continues to develop until 25 years. But it is believed that setting a minimum age too high would encourage the illicit market.
