Sometimes people believe marijuana is safe because it is a natural plant from the earth which is most often used in its natural form. Most tobacco products today are filled with additives and preservatives, and many mood-altering drugs are man-made concoctions cooked up in a lab or in a basement.
Yet, just because marijuana is plant-based, does it make it safe?
Many plants are toxic and unsafe for human use, such as hemlock, wolfs bane, foxglove, jimson weed, arsenic, bella donna, poppy, coca and many more.
Marijuana, even in its most natural forms, has been proven to carry both health and safety risks.
