I don’t think marijuana use in its psychoactive forms is a healthy choice except in extreme medical conditions like chronic pain relief where no other method is feasible.
There is several studies and real world experience of health benefits for medicinal marijuana in its raw form (not heated, dried or…) but more research needed.
I strongly agree it should be regulated for the sole purposes of taking money away from organized crime and controlling THC content which is up to 400 times higher than in the past. Worse yet a natural component in marijuana that counteracts the destructive brain effects of THC is reduced equally when breeding higher THC. This can have a huge negative impact on mental health especially in youth or those more susceptible to mental health issues and often gets worse the more used. In some cases it can lead to permanent or long lasting issues if not treated.
