In North America, it’s no secret that the legality of marijuana usage differs greatly region by region. Various polls have shown that a majority of the citizens of the US and Canada believe marijuana should be legally regulated. Conversely, in the US alone, roughly 750,000 people are arrested for possession of the drug each year. Regardless of the statistics, one can’t deny that, every day, marijuana use is becoming a more socially acceptable practice.
As such, we must discuss what constitutes appropriate and “safe” recreational or medical marijuana usage. Wherever you reside in North America, and whatever the legal stance in your region, it’s likely that the laws pertaining to marijuana usage are confusing and don’t address all of the safety issues that may arise. This is especially true if marijuana use is completely illegal in your area. You need to be aware of the repercussions of using marijuana in the wrong place or at the wrong time.
If you don’t educate yourself about the hazards, you could seriously injure yourself or others and face dire legal consequences.
