    It's not truthful to call cannabis plants or any of the slang terms for the dried female flowers and leaves of cannabis plants a drug.
    By that logic, vodka is a refreshing beverage that just happens to contain a drug known as ethanol, a tab of acid is really a bit of confetti that happens to have absorbed a little bit of a solution that happened to contain LSD, and aspirin is a breath mint that happens to contain acetylsalycic acid.

    Marijuana is a drug, if you're using it in the way that 99%+ of users are. It's often a very handy drug, it's a relatively harmless drug- but it's a drug.

    noun ˈdrəg\

    : a substance that is used as a medicine

    : an illegal and often harmful substance (such as heroin, cocaine, LSD, or marijuana) that people take for pleasure

    Or are you saying that cannabis is NOT medically useful?

      it is not actually a drug. The drugs found in cannabis resins are called cannabinoids like THC and CBD. You are perpetuating the mythology of marijuana created decades ago and still used to villianize the entire genus of cannabis plants.
