Marijuana Lifestyle: A better substitute for alcohol

 Marijuana lifestyle is a way of living life by using medical marijuana. Most people have a certain opinion about marijuana and how it causes side effects on the human body. But they don’t know that marijuana has more positive effects, including helping with various diseases like AIDS, Cancer, and glaucoma. But marijuana should not be taken in the form of smoke. It should be applied in some other forms like pills and liquids. In liquid form it is the best substitute for alcoholic drinks. Alcohol causes lots of side effects like liver damage and health weakness but on the other hand there are no such side effects from using marijuana.
