Marijuana as a medicinal drug in 2737 B.C by Chinese Emperor Shen Nung. He recorded how effective the drug was for treating the pain associated with rheumatism and gout, not only this but animals also partake in drug taking, whether they seek the pain relief from Marijuana, or the mind expanding capabilities of Mushrooms. Animals, and especially humans are always looking for ways to improve themselves, or to get more from life. And drugs offer this in several forms. Although the most of what I've said so far is positive- don't be fooled. Drugs come with fatal risks. I for one am allergic to Penicillin, and antibiotic, which could easily kill me if I were to be given it in a large dosage, but then again so could Ibuprofen (in a very horrific manor).
Drugs can be used for both good and bad, and I have seen both ends of the spectrum. One of my friend's Dads has MS, a neurological condition which affects coordination, and the mind itself. Making the sufferer lose memory, and logical thinking. The disease gets worse with time, and so he uses medicinal marijuana to help with the effects. It raises his quality of life, and makes him much happier. However I have also seen the opposite end of the scale. People taking recreational drugs such as Ecstasy, Ketamine and the likes. Although they may seem like immense fun at the time, they can cause lasting side-effects, changing you entirely as a person.
This article was written purely to educate, I am not telling you you should partake in drug taking, or that you should completely avoid it. The law surrounding drugs is there to keep you safe, but doesn't always adhere to the situation. Take drugs at your own risk, also be careful and mindful of the side-effects they can cause, and if you think you are have an adverse reaction, please get some help. Your health is much more important than the law, if you are worried a health practitioner will judge you for taking drugs- they will not, they are there to help, no matter what.
