In the world of marijuana here in the U.S. there is a serious division. There are those of us that have embraced legal marijuana and walk in to legal dispensaries to buy lab tested weed and then there are plenty of us still buying it the old fashioned way, illegally.

Hi I am Christine Sclafani, the culture correspondent for Listen, it’s understandable. Only 11 states have legalized the consumption of marijuana for any adult over the age of 21 and people are either nervous or confused about getting a medical marijuana card in one of the 33 states that have legalized medical cannabis.

Here is one thing that I want to clear up for people. In the legal market, marijuana, weed, pot, cannabis or whatever you want to call it comes in many forms. There are edibles, concentrates, dabs, vapes, tinctures, topicals and even suppositories available that can get you high and they are all marijuana. But, I often get these weird looks and tilted heads when I talk about marijuana flower.

For clarification, the legal world of cannabis has started calling your traditional eighth or ounce of weed, FLOWER, just to differentiate it from the myriad of other products now available. Why? Well because what you smoke is in fact the marijuana plant’s flower.
