SUBJECT: Increasing False Information of Marijuana

Here is the report you asked about the increase of false acquisitions about marijuana and recommendations on how we can prevent further false information to go out again and provide the right information about its benefits. The study includes primary research focused on a survey of students of the Frostburg State campus community.

Though the results I received, allot people look at marijuana as a bad drug from the usual information they received; also not allot of people knew that the plant had medical benefits. Recommendations for increasing awareness include forums & newsletters about the actual benefits of marijuana in a better approach.

If you have any questions or would like to help out in the cause, feel free to contact me on my email at nmeshesha0@frostburg.edu or call me at 202-112-4311.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Purposes of the Repost

The purpose of this report is to see (1) the awareness of marijuana and to see peoples views on the subject around the area and (2) find ways to increase awareness of the true information about marijuana and its benefits. A survey was made to learn about people and their education about the plant while seeing if they ever consumed or partake in the plant. A total of 17 individuals responded to the survey.

Recommendations

1. Have social forums about marijuana with local representatives and scientists who prep the plant for medical usage
2. Make a better approach for some of the dangers of marijuana
3. Increase awareness through ads and pamphlets.

Introduction

People still look down upon marijuana as a very harmful drug. Even with the many benefits it has provided to the states for the past years, from medical to economics, it’s looked as a death sentence.
