What’s Your Reason for Being Pro-Cannabis?

July 9, 2016

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding the legalization of marijuana, and we all know people incorporate cannabis into their lives for a variety of reasons. As many residents across the U.S. prepare to cast their votes come November, we figured we’d take to Instagram to ask our followers, “What’s your reason” behind legalizing cannabis.

What’s your reason? ????#cannabis #legalizeit

    It is now Nov 8th at 7:50 PM. I am watching the Florida polls and Amendment 2 is past 70% which means we won. We needed 60% to pass medical marijuana. I for one am very excited because I suffer with back spasms and know that it will help me to live a better life. Thank you Morgan and Morgan for all your help.
