Erectile dysfunction happens to men of all ages, races, and social stature. In fact, 5% of men over 40 are diagnosed with complete erectile dysfunction (ED)—and by 70 years old, that number jumps to 15%. The causes can range from hormonal imbalances, to diabetes, and even narrow arteries. Mental state is also an important part of the equation, but it’s more complicated than simply “willing the mind.” Clinical depression is a mood dampener, and a whopping 82% of men with ED were found to also suffer from depression.
Americans’ view on marijuana have certainly changed a lot over the past twenty years. When I was a young twenty-year-old, smoking weed was still considered extremely taboo—at least in my tiny town in central Minnesota. As far as I was aware, it was hard to get a hold of and if you were caught using it, you were labeled a “pot head” for the rest of your school career. However, as the years have gone by, many medical developments have put marijuana in a different light—mostly with a positive spin.
