Why You Should Choose Cannabis Over Alcohol for St. Patrick’s Day

 

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, a holiday mostly known in America for excessive drinking and lots of partying. This year, why not honor the heritage of the Irish in a different way, one that isn’t so destructive and harmful? We think cannabis is the perfect way to do that. After all, the color of the day is green! Here are a few reasons why you should choose cannabis this year instead.

 

There are Lots of St. Paddy’s-Themed Strains

Just like you can have your Guiness or Irish whisky on this special day, you can choose cannabis strains inspired by the holiday as well! High Times points out some great strains, including Lucky Charms, Pot of Gold and Martian Mean Green. Get in the spirit!

 

It’s the Perfect Excuse for Edibles

Like most holidays, Saint Patrick’s Day means candy, so why not try some edibles! You could make infused rice crispy treats with Lucky Charms, buy some infused chocolate or, as High Times suggests, bake some four-leaf-clover sugar cookies.

 

Save the World from Drunk Driving

The Maven points out that drunk driving is a major killer on Saint Patrick’s Day. Of course, it’s not good to smoke and drive, either, but since you are more likely to make rash decisions while drinking, you are more likely to decide to drive if you feel to drunk. If you’re stoned, you’re more likely to just stay put.

 

Your Intoxication will be Minor

When drinking, you can get sick, throw up or even die. With cannabis, the worst thing that will happen is you will overeat and then fall asleep. Stick with the healthier choice this St. Patrick’s Day, and just smoke a little instead!
