I am for the ending of America’s hypocritical prohibition on recreational cannabis. One of the other things I’m for ending is fraudulent claims that marijuana is good for every ailment a human being can suffer from. Don’t get me wrong, I truly do believe that there are medical reasons for consumption of cannabis, but I also do believe that people just want to get messed up a bit and are willing to claim that blazing up a joint is somehow a benefit more so than it actually is.
Briteside Cannabis Delivery just put out a hilarious video that’s shot like one of those vague pharmaceutical commercials that prey on American hypochondriacs. (via Mashable and Boing Boing)
