In case you haven’t heard, there are companies purporting to ship marijuana edibles all across the United States, and even the world. They’re claiming that they ship safely and discretely. Growing up, I was taught that if it sounds too good to be true, it is. Being able to order marijuana from the comfort of your home sounds fantastic. But there’s one small little detail that makes me think this is a farce. That little detail would be the legality issues surrounding marijuana. I don’t think I need to explain how illegal it is to ship any part of the marijuana plant. It’s still a Schedule I drug in the US, which means it’s very illegal. Schedule I drugs have been classified by the US federal government as high abuse potential.
So how is OrderEdiblesOnline.com shipping their edibles nationwide? We decided to dig deeper to see what’s really going on under the hood. While we are fans of cannabis ourselves, this just seemed a little fishy.
The Truth About Marijuana Edibles
Anyone with half a brain should know by now that weed isn’t as bad as it’s been made out to be. The information disseminated about weed through the main media channels is the textbook definition of propaganda.
What the media has been spewing for decades qualifies as both biased and misleading. They constantly report on make-believe factoids about marijuana but fail to show the good side of the drug. The medical uses for marijuana are vast and widespread, but I have only seen some of the uses mention less than a handful of times. One of my favorite heroes who speaks openly about marijuana is Sanjay Gupta. He is one of the few big-name talking heads that has made his support for medical marijuana very clear. You can read Sanjay’s opinion on medical marijuana to see where he stands.
Even though we believe that marijuana isn’t all that bad for you and that the benefits far outweigh the downside, that doesn’t matter. The reason it doesn’t matter is that it’s still illegal to ship it across the US or internationally. We support responsible weed usage but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s federally illegal in the United States.
We have the war on drugs to thank for this mess. It all started back in 1971 when Nixon decided to go all gung-ho on petty drug crimes. He had is agenda, which many say wasn’t about drugs at all. People from his administration say it was about targeting the antiwar left and blacks. Fresh out of the Jim Crow era, this isn’t a hard concept for people to believe.
What About The Edibles?
Well, after doing a little digging, there are companies that claim to ship edibles but I wouldn’t trust them. Lookup their reputation and chances are you’ll see a bunch of scam complaints. People are trying to buy edibles online left and right and losing a lot of money in the process. As far as the aforementioned company, they’re a little tricky. They are actually shipping different kinds of edibles and cannabis products that only contain trace levels of THC, below the legal limit. While technically the edibles do have some THC in them, they’re not the same as what you’re probably thinking.
