It was not so long ago that being a lover of marijuana meant that you had to hide the use of it. For many in states where it is still illegal, that is still the case. For a lot of other states, that has changed and it is all on the way to more of a cannabis friendly culture. You no longer have to hide the use and some states even allow you to grow some for yourself if you want to do that.
If you have heard the term before, you might be wondering what does 420 friendly mean? In general, it now means that someone or some institution or place is friendly to the use of cannabis and will not call the cops on you. It also means that such things are openly used and there is no persecution for the use of cannabis. The history of it is a little hard to pinpoint and there are a lot of stories behind it.
One way or the other, society in America is facing a more 420 friendly culture, which is to say that it is becoming more acceptable and even condoned in many circles. Now there are dispensaries popping up all over the place to sell people the cannabis that they medically need or recreationally use. It all depends on what your use is where you fit into that picture.
Now that you do not have to hide it and you can legally possess cannabis in many states, the roof is lifted and people are more relaxed. You do not hear as many stories about paranoia being caused by cannabis so much. That is because the real reason for the paranoia is the illegal nature of the plant and people using it being afraid of the potential legal consequences of use.
You can find a number of different strains of cannabis when you go to look for it. There are as many kinds as you can think of with all kinds of different effects. It is up to you which ones you enjoy the most. You will certainly find a strain that is right for you. Some people like the Indica strains and others like the Sativa strains and still others like the hybrid strains which are mixtures of both.
As far as medical uses are concerned, cannabis is even used to help cancer and many other illnesses. To get a license for medical cannabis, you have to be dealing with one of the medical conditions on the list a state has for that purpose. You cannot just say that you have headaches and get medical cannabis. On the other hand, the recreationally legal states do not have the same restrictions.
The point of a culture that is more 420 friendly is that it is kinder to cannabis users of all kinds, whether it be for recreational or medical use or both. This is good news to a lot of people in the country today. Now people are coming out of the woodwork all over the place to say they are cannabis users.
