Does Cannabis Pose Any Risks for Male Reproductive Health?

Thanks to some of its participants, the DC Capitol Seige Riot set the cannabis stigma back as rioters consumed irresponsibly in the Rotunda. To help boost morale for the COVID vaccines, the Joints for Jabs campaign will be giving away free cannabis outside of DC vaccine clinics. And Texas, of all places, is flirting with the idea of expanding its medical cannabis program.

If you haven’t been living under a rock recently, you’re probably very much aware of the incidents that occurred in DC last week.
In an attempted insurrection, several rioters stormed the DC Capitol as Congress was certifying Biden’s win in the presidential election.
Many of these participants have been identified and are now undergoing intense investigation.
One clip has surfaced of two rioters sharing a joint inside the rotunda declaring that they had made history as patriots in what they claimed was now “THEIR House”.
And another rioter who live-streamed the siege has been identified as both a shareholder in multiple cannabis farms and an owner of a cannabis consultant firm in Oklahoma.
In an interview with NewsWest9, she vehemently insists that what she did was legal and will continue to stand by her choice in conduct.
Even though cannabis is legal in Washington DC, it’s still absolutely illegal to possess and consume cannabis on any federal premises.
For about a century now, cannabis has long suffered an unshakeable stigma
And these defiant actions at the Capitol did nothing but support it.
More in DC
Activists from the group, DC Marijuana Justice, or DCMJ, have announced a Joints for Jabs campaign that will hand out free bags of cannabis outside of COVID vaccination centers in the District
The group insists that the free product is top shelf quality and is free of pesticides and synthetic fertilizers
In a press release, the group stated that “this community effort aims to highlight the need for further local and national cannabis reform while also advocating for the equitable distribution of this critical vaccine.
Date, time, and location are to be determined and will be announced at a later time once information on the clinics is revealed.
Following cannabis’ wild success in 2020, 2021 may prove to be another winning year as more states are stepping up to the cannabis legalization plate.
New York, Rhode Island, hopefully, New Jersey, and Virginia are just a few of many.
And according to top lawmakers in the state, Texas, of all places, is planning on following suit with intentions of expanding its very restrictive medical cannabis program.
The state’s current program is so severely restrictive that many don’t really consider it to be a legitimate medical cannabis program at all.
However, in the past, the state has expanded the conditions to qualify as a patient in a very slow incremental crawl.
Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R)insists that while the state is not currently interested in California’s model where cannabis is so freely accessible,
Moving forward to broaden the medical program for Texans is not off the table.
What are your thoughts? Do you think Texas will move forward with this? Let us know!
