    Generation Differences of Smoking Cannabis

    Generation Differences of Smoking Cannabis

    Marijuana’s journey in America started when it gained infamy from the Marijuana Stamp Act in 1937 which made weed illegal.

    No scientific evidence was used to back up and defend the justification of making marijuana illegal. Stereotypes were put in place in order to have Marijuana looked down upon.

    A movie titled, "Reefer Madness" made for an even greater negative influence on the way society viewed marijuana. In the 50’s marijuana laws were increased to 2-10 years for a minimum sentence and a fine of around $20,000. This created a greater risk if choosing to smoke weed at the time due to the harsh consequences.

    Luckily, when the 1960’s rolled around the knowledge behind marijuana was starting to grow gradually and it was ruled out that the substance does not induce violence. Counter culture in the hippie era is when marijuana started to truly make its first run in the United States. Many of the youth in the ‘60’s become more accustom to mary jane due to the heavy shifts in cultural and political views. Hippy weed, as it’s known today, is the marijuana that was smoked throughout the 1960’s and even 70’s. This weed was often imported from Central American countries and is known to have a very minimal potency to it. A single joint from the modern day era has the same potency of about 20 joints from the hippy era. This dramatic increase in marijuana strength changes the entire landscape and basis of ingesting marijuana.

    In 1970 weed was set apart from other drugs which made it possible to lose its minimal sentencing laws for small possessions. Smoking weed in the 70’s was seen and regarded as a far different experience as it is today. Although it was heavily ridiculed by those who were not of the marijuana movement, those involved in the movement treated it as a spiritual experience with those around them and with nothing to hide. It is more often than not now a days that marijuana smoking is kept as a secret or on the down low. This judgement on weed in the modern day is slowly but surely beginning to change with state and local laws evolving in order to make marijuana legal not only medically, but recreationally as well.

    Weed’s main image stayed the same for a long time: bud, papers for joints, and pipes/ bongs to smoke out of. Unlike today’s plethora of ways to smoke and substances to inhale the hippy days of weed were much more simplistic. Not only has the THC content (Potency) in marijuana rose dramatically over the past 50 years, the types of marijuana now stretches much further than just flower buds. Wax, edibles, vaporizers, and blunts are just a few of the most relevant apparatuses that have recently brought around to the weed industry. These items not only expand the culture of marijuana but also bring more extensive knowledge and prominence to the industry. Being able to extract chemicals from marijuana makes it a more effective medicine and helps researchers understand its full potential.

    The leniency of marijuana in the U.S. has and will continue to grow until it is legal on the federal level recreationally. Marijuana's frowned upon status has been turned around to a much more acceptable factor in society that can leave more of a positive impact than most would expect.

    Misconceptions About the Vape

    Misconceptions About the Vape

    Longtime vapers may read this and roll their eyes, but the vast majority of people get the facts wrong about vaping, so let’s set the record straight. Many worry about what they are ingesting when they inhale from a vape pen. That mysterious clear liquid must be full of toxic chemicals, right? How else do they get it to taste so good? WRONG.

                The truth is that e-liquid is typically only make with minimal ingredients-- all of which you can actually pronounce out loud without having earned a Chemistry degree or, more realistically, binge watching Breaking Bad. Electronic vaporizers are a healthy and convenient alternative for those who dislike the idea of subjecting their lungs to the harmful carcinogens of a cigarette. One of the biggest benefits of swapping smoke for vapor is that there is no longer a risk of inhaling tar, the dark sticky substance that damages lungs, stains teeth, and even discolors furniture. With vaping, that tar gets replaced by water, which is not only better for you, but secondhand smoke is eliminated altogether.

     

                Surprisingly, even after purchasing a high end vape, such as the Ooze Drought Vaporizer Kit, vapes still beat out cigarettes in long-term cost effectiveness. It almost sounds too good to be true that a safe and affordable smoking alternative actually exists, let alone the fact that vapes make your breath smell like candy, but the facts don’t lie. Whether you’re hitting up your favorite music festival or visiting grandma’s house for the weekend, electronic vaporizers are discrete, yet effective. It makes perfect sense that with all the recent advancements in technology in a world that is progressing faster than ever before, the tobacco and marijuana industries would be subject to change as well. The vape pen is one of the products of this amazing advancement, and its future is only getting brighter.
