The world’s standpoint on marijuana users is speedily moving towards acceptable, and marijuana use is being explored more openly now than ever before. The danger comes when people who don’t understand the plant and its properties jump into using it without a proper foundation.

Even though using marijuana may be legal where you live, there are still certain stipulations around its use.  Take a moment now to check out a few things to remember before you begin exploring the world of marijuana, and move forward with confidence.

Remember it’s not legal on the road

You can smoke a joint at home, but it’s not okay to smoke a joint in your car while you’re driving down the road.  Just as drinking and driving will earn you a DUI (driving under the influence) charge, smoking and driving can earn you a charge too.

Be mindful of the laws surrounding the legal use of marijuana, so you don’t get yourself into a sticky situation.  If you’re not sure of the stipulations, a quick Google search will give you some clarity on the subject.

Think about your productivity

Partaking in the use of marijuana has been proven to affect a person’s productivity in life.  It really does distract some people from getting important things done, and you can’t let the recreational joy of marijuana stunt your progress.

Be honest with yourself along the way.  If you see that smoking or consuming marijuana is causing you to slack on crucial areas of your life, be adult enough to cut back or quit entirely for a while.

Understand that there’s a time and a place

You have to have sound judgment when you choose to use marijuana.  There is a time and a place for most things, and getting high is definitely not an everywhere activity.  It’s not always a wise decision to smell like weed or have a faded mind.

For instance, going to traffic court or walking into a college classroom is probably not the best time to be under the influence of marijuana.  Sometimes life calls for your full attention, and smoking weed will distract from your goals.

Don’t use when you’re under age

It probably sounds lame saying that you shouldn’t use marijuana while you’re still under the legal age, but there is some substance to it.

Your brain isn’t yet fully developed when you’re under age, and any mind-altering substance can have some negative consequences.  It’s best to wait until your frontal lobe is fully developed, so you don’t stifle the fiery drive for life that often comes along with youth.

Consider alternatives to smoking 

Finally, keep in mind that smoking marijuana isn’t the healthiest manner of partaking in use.  There are other ways to enjoy the perks of pot.  Edibles, vaporizers, and oils are all healthier ways to enjoy the plant.
