Before major hip hop groups such as NWA arrived on the scene, people would refuse to admit they were even from Compton. Nowadays, everyone wears the identity with pride. The genre was a testament to triumphing over hardships, to having enough confidence in oneself not to let the world drag you down, and to rising above the struggle, even when things seem hopeless.

My first point from Gauna’s

There are very few negative side effects from marijuana, like minor throat irritation. I’m not telling people to break the law and smoke weed, but I would prefer to see one of my friends be a ‘pothead’ than an alcoholic or a heroin addict.
