Legal Cannabis and Morality
#40
I don't know anything about "hemp" vs. "marijuana," the THC levels of either, extracting CBD oils, the efficacy of various cannabis strains and various forms of ingestion on medical conditions, etc., but I know that CBD oil is supremely expensive while planting some seeds and watering them costs nothing. As a pain patient whose doctor -- like the doctors of millions of other pain patients -- has been terrified into undertreating pain/not treating it at all, I'd love to try CBD oil, but no way could I afford to. I can fully understand someone putting up with a marijuana high to be eased of pain, and I say this as someone who does not like the sort of high grass gives (I mean, I really don't like it).*


* As said, though, I have no idea if smoking grass eases pain in any way similar to the ways using CBD oil is said to (anyone know?). But *if* it does, I can see why pain patients would smoke it.

Something else I'm wondering about reading this thread: there's been talk about "the culture" of marijuana: I think there are a gorillion sub-cultures in play here, and while someone raised on the North side, the ritzy side of a town, might have an idea of "that culture over there" where people might sometimes "use drugs" after work is a "culture" associated with losers, hippies, ex-hippies, children of unmarried ex-hippies, folks who don't have books in their homes, people who fight over the colors red and blue, etc. -- while someone raised on that other side of town might know lots of respectable people who go to church, raise their kids decently, go to the library, and may occasionally have a few tokes of grass they grew themselves after planting a few seeds between the rows of corn in their garden, thereby having nothing to do with "the drug culture" per se, or drug dealers, or Mexican cartels, and all the Hollywood stuff. Just something to keep in mind, which leads to a bigger point about the world of traditional Catholicism: I think that, too often, what is seen as the True, Good, and Beautiful can be too exclusively bound up in cultural specifics and personal aesthetics. The "1950ism,"  "neo-Victorianism," and "pseudo-Amish thing" we sometimes see in trad circles -- things that strike me as larping rooted in anomie -- can be really off-putting to a lot of people.
