Parents and Pot
Talking to your parents about pot is a tough thing for most people, especially when the situation involves a parent that is a cop or a military member.
Not everyone is open to the idea of legalization and parents especially seem to have a hard time letting their kids make the choice to smoke. The easiest way to talk to your parents is just to be honest and tell them the truth.
When a parent first finds out that their child is smoking the reefer, I would assume that the first thing they feel is disappointment. They think that they’ve failed raising you and that you’re now going to turn in to a drug addict and begin begging for money on street corners because they still think that marijuana is a gateway drug. You have to realize that them getting angry is more so at themselves and not at you. They think they’ve failed. In fact, you’ve now been enlightened to a better, more creative life.
So after the initial shock of you telling your parents that you smoke, they’ll begin to try to deter you from the plant. “Well what about school and your job and your FUTURE?” All you need to say is that there is definitely marijuana in your future. When the plant becomes a common, every day thing, there will be many new jobs available and lots of money to be made in the business. Even then, if marijuana is decriminalized there will be no prejudice against it. Therefore, any job that tests for THC won’t anymore because let’s face it, everyone will be smoking when the law changes!
After explaining this to them, they might just drop it. Or they might continue to pester you. My parents are both police officers so you can imagine the weird talk I had with them when I started writing about marijuana last summer. They really weren’t happy to hear that one of their children was going to be a “criminal” and support “illegal things”. My mother thinks that I’ll go to jail any day now just for writing about the plant, not even smoking, selling, or growing. They hate marijuana that much.
Talking to your parents, while sometimes awkward and angry, is definitely better than lying to them about it or just not telling them at all. Honesty is the best policy and if you still live in an illegal state, it’s probably better to talk to your parents about it now rather than you get arrested ad have them find out when the cops give you your one measly phone call. Who knows, you might end up with awesome parents that want to smoke with you!

Makeup and skincare make up a huge part of the female life (possibly for some males as well). Taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your insides.
Some products on the market today aren’t good for you face at all and can end up damaging your skin over a long period of time. Some of these products are animal tested, which obviously is terrible thing in itself, let alone the fact that there have been products released to the general public containing carcinogens. While looking nice is a positive thing and can help with self-image, giving yourself cancer by putting foundation on isn’t okay.
By now, people have begun to realize that cannabis has numerous other uses other than getting people stoned. There are articles on cannabis relating to industrial purposes and internal health but very few on the connection of cannabis and beauty products. However, this information is definitely worth finding. Topical cannabis is used to treat inflammation, as well as redness and dry skin. By putting creams containing cannabis on the skin, one could reduce the amount of acne, flakey skin, and redness on the face or other parts of the body that suffer from the same issues (elbows, knuckles, feet, etc).
These cannabis creams aren’t going to get you stoned so there’s no need to worry, you can use them whenever. Unfortunately, the creams are illegal in any state that marijuana is illegal… Only because it contains cannabis. Basically, you can get arrested by just possessing these products, even though they have no mind altering effect on those that use them. Since these creams are all natural and don’t contain carcinogens like the stuff you see on the shelves at Rite Aid and CVS, they’re far healthier for the human body and need to be researched to the point where the consumer can buy foundation, eye shadow, mascara, and powder made with cannabis that has zero health risks when used.
By using more natural things on our skin, we lower the risk of our bodies absorbing the toxic ingredients in some products. It’s ridiculous that possessing cannabis skin cream is still a punishable offense, especially since the ointments will not get you anywhere near stoned. These creams could possibly slow down the aging process of skin and allow the skin to be more elastic for longer, reducing amounts of wrinkles. Hopefully, the research to discover benefits like that can be done soon. The consumers deserve products that will better their lives and the lives of those around them.
