The thing that really irritates me about situations like this is because i have smoked cannabis for many years and have realized myself that cannabis is very safe considering it is in moderation for example when i first started smoking it i over done it by smoking all day everyday for 4 years and my life felt like hell so i wanted to find a way i could still smoke and not have this anxiety issue i experienced while smoking it everyday because i remembered the old days toking and it was amazing so i thought what did i do differently before then what i am doing now, then i realized before i never used to smoke it all day everyday so now i don't smoke all through the day and i leave it for 7pm and what have i found that has changed = I no longer have anxiety and can live my life the way i want to even with a smoke every night. i hope this information will help people out their with the same problem as i had ,as i feel it is wrong for people in this video too give cannabis a bad name because it isn't cannabis it is the person themselves. i strongly stick with a sentence i thought about when i solved this it is that if you abuse something it will abuse u in the end.
