Use or possession of cannabis is against the law although police sometimes appear not to enforce cannabis laws.
Remember that smoking is not the only way to consume cannabis. Other options include edibles, vaping, tinctures, suppositories or absorbed through the skin.
If you do decide to consume cannabis, do not drive a car for at least 24 hours.
For the regular smoker restrict yourself to a maximum of 5 days a week and no more than 4 joints a day (most people get by with much less).
Taking any drug mixed up in smoke is harmful to the lungs. If you want to keep smoking cannabis consider buying a vaporiser and do not smoke tobacco.
You should be aware that if you always mix tobacco with your pot, but don’t smoke cigarettes you will probably become addicted to nicotine anyway. When this occurs you will find that you will need to service your nicotine addiction by smoking a cannabis mix many times a day. This is one of the worst situations to be in, especially for youth.
Cookies or other edibles, are not a safe or soft option. If you don’t know the strength of the edible, eat half, and wait an hour. The effects of eating cannabis last longer than smoking, can be more intense, and creates a full body stoned. Make sure you’re somewhere comfortable. If you accidentally eat too much, suggest to lie down for a good snooze.
If you have a history of mental illness, there may a danger of precipitating a relapse, and in that situation it is safer to not use cannabis.
If you buy cannabis, try to avoid people who also sell other illicit drugs. Don’t get ripped off or pressured and never buy pot from kids.
If you use it don’t abuse it, and try to keep it organic!
