Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

The Rising Social Acceptance of Cannabis

In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift in societal attitudes toward cannabis, marking a departure from the stigmas and stereotypes that have long surrounded this plant. As legalization efforts gain momentum and more people embrace the medicinal and recreational benefits of cannabis, its social acceptability is on the rise. This blog explores the factors contributing to the changing landscape and the evolving perceptions surrounding cannabis.

Breaking Down Stereotypes

One of the key drivers behind the increasing social acceptance of cannabis is the dismantling of long-held stereotypes. Traditionally associated with counterculture and rebellion, cannabis was often stigmatized as a gateway drug with negative connotations. However, as scientific research sheds light on its potential health benefits and advocates share personal stories, public perception is shifting.

Medical Marvel: Changing Perceptions through Science

The medicinal properties of cannabis have played a pivotal role in altering public opinion. With an increasing body of research supporting the therapeutic use of cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, people are reevaluating their views on cannabis. From pain management to anxiety relief, cannabis is being recognized as a legitimate and effective alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals.

Moreover, the legalization of medical cannabis in many regions has led to a more open dialogue about its potential benefits. Patients with chronic conditions, including epilepsy, cancer, and chronic pain, are finding relief through medical cannabis, prompting a reconsideration of its status in the eyes of the public.

Economic Impact: Green Growth

The economic implications of the cannabis industry are undeniable. As more regions legalize both medical and recreational use, a burgeoning market is emerging. This economic boon is influencing public opinion as people recognize the potential for job creation, tax revenue, and economic growth associated with the cannabis industry.

From cultivation and processing to retail and distribution, the cannabis sector has become a source of employment and entrepreneurship. This economic impact resonates with communities, leading to a more positive perception of cannabis as a legitimate and lucrative industry.

Changing Legal Landscape

The legal landscape surrounding cannabis is undergoing a profound transformation. While legalization efforts began with the approval of medical cannabis in various jurisdictions, an increasing number of places are now moving toward full legalization for recreational use.

As cannabis becomes a regulated and taxable commodity, it is shedding its association with illicit activities. The regulated market ensures quality control, consumer safety, and responsible consumption. This shift from prohibition to regulation contributes to the normalization and acceptance of cannabis within society.

Cultural Shift: From Counterculture to Mainstream

The portrayal of cannabis in popular culture has also evolved, contributing to its increasing social acceptance. Media depictions, once characterized by stereotypes and negative imagery, are becoming more nuanced and reflective of the diverse range of individuals who consume cannabis.

Celebrities openly discussing their cannabis use, mainstream movies depicting responsible consumption, and musicians incorporating cannabis themes into their work all contribute to a cultural shift. This normalization in popular culture plays a crucial role in breaking down barriers and fostering a more accepting attitude toward cannabis.


In conclusion, the rising social acceptance of cannabis is a multifaceted phenomenon driven by changing perceptions, scientific advancements, economic opportunities, evolving legal landscapes, and cultural shifts. As we continue to learn more about the benefits of cannabis and witness its positive impact on individuals and communities, the tide is turning towards a more accepting and informed society. The Green Revolution is not just about the legalization of a plant; it's about a transformative shift in how we view and engage with cannabis in the modern world.
