2. Anxiety and Stress
In addition to depression, LGBT people are more likely to have anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder. This is exacerbated by the stress of coming out. It’s made even worse by the threats of rejection, violence, and discrimination that often follow coming out.
As with depression, cannabis use can relieve anxiety and stress. Don’t want to reach for your vape every time a politician challenges your human rights?
New studies show that daily use helps reduce stress even when you’re sober. By legalizing cannabis, everyone would be able to have access to it, with or without a prescription.
