A new study by researchers at Oregon State University has found that certain cannabis compounds could prevent covid 19 infection. 10 years ago, I would have said these scientists must be getting high on their own research supplies. Like most American youth, I graduated from DARE in 5th grade. I knew for a fact that drugs were bad and marijuana had no medical benefits. Over the past year, I've begun to question what Officer Tuten taught us.
I'm living in Jersey surrounded by the drugs. Heck, I even consumed an edible on one occasion which went really well
And now this study.
My world has been turned upside down and it's a little unsettling. If only there was something I could take that would calm me down.
Thankfully, somehow, I have not yet gotten Covid. I've gotten both shots, but I've been holding out on the booster. I would much rather take a marijuana than get a shot in the arm. I'm down for a "Joints, not Jabs" campaign. I'll just have to make sure I'm in a safe place before ingesting the devils lettuce. And it's a pretty good excuse to try weed again without feeling guilty. "I'm not high, mom. I'm Boosting!"
From this day forward, Stu Feiner is my General Practitioner.
