[Sticky] The mainstream media and cannabis edibles
As a former political science student, I tend to watch a lot of news and current affair-type shows. Interestingly, during a lot of these types of mainstream news shows there is an overwhelmingly negative spin on cannabis edibles and successful cannabis users are easily found across the world. The stigmas associated with marijuana are slowly starting to disappear. However, I find that the demonization of cannabis edibles is still pervasive in the media.
Legalizing marijuana, both medicinally and recreationally, is a huge fear for the pharmaceutical industry. In The United States, opiate overdoses dropped approximately 25% in cities and states that have legalized cannabis.
In addition, locations that have marijuana dispensaries in the United States have seen a 15-35% decrease in substance abuse admissions.
Over $100 million per year is collected in tax revenue from cannabis sales in Colorado. This means that citizens get rebates, public amenities are paid for by marijuana sales, and the state has seen less opioid abuse and overdosing on the whole.

Hypocrisy is still rife! The fight is far from over
