A weed dispensary, weed cooperative, or weed club is a public place in which legal marijuana is sold for either medicinal or recreational use. In Europe these are generally known as coffeeshops, in the USA as an underground outlet for either recreational or medicinal use. In Canada weed clubs are also common. In all countries where marijuana is illegal it is illegal to sell it.
One of the main reasons people opt for such an arrangement is to avoid the stigma of drug use and the risks that are associated with it. However, the stigma associated with marijuana use does not mean that people cannot use it. In fact it can be quite beneficial. Many studies have shown that marijuana users often find more energy and less anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders than non-users. These users may use marijuana on their own or with others, but most commonly with other smokers. For some users smoking marijuana helps relieve chronic pain caused by arthritis. Many patients who smoke marijuana are prescribed it by their doctors for this very reason.
Marijuana is also good for the body in other ways. Some studies show that using marijuana relieves certain diseases. The medical community has been increasingly recommending marijuana to alleviate pain due to degenerative diseases and aging. Even people who suffer from terminal illnesses may find relief from marijuana. People who suffer from multiple sclerosis can experience some degree of relief after smoking marijuana. People who have cancer are often encouraged to smoke marijuana in order to relieve some of the side effects of chemotherapy. It is believed that it may also slow down the aging process, making the person less susceptible to disease.
Marijuana can also be used to alleviate insomnia and to induce sleep. There are a number of studies that have shown that it can help reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. This is probably because the chemicals found in marijuana are believed to alter brain chemistry and make sufferers less reactive to external stimuli.
Marijuana also has some potential uses for those with epilepsy. In fact many sufferers of epilepsy find that marijuana relieves the symptoms of their epilepsy. It is said that it can help to calm the seizures caused by epilepsy by reducing the frequency and intensity of attacks. It is also thought to reduce the risk of certain brain tumors in such a way that the brain has fewer receptors which means it is less likely to be damaged.
There is no clear cut answer as to why marijuana should be illegal, although there is some debate as to whether it should be legal or not. However, it is clear that it has many beneficial and negative aspects and it is up to each individual to decide what to do with it.
