5 Camping Supplies That Are More Dangerous Than Marijuana

According to many opponents and the federal government of the United States, marijuana is a very dangerous drug that should not be legalized. The claim that marijuana is dangerous is based on ancient ideas and fears of the effects of the drug. Many opponents of marijuana still hold onto these old ideals even though marijuana is consumed more as a medicine than ever before. When consumed responsibly marijuana isn’t as dangerous as many believe, but there are some everyday camping supplies that are dangerous even when they are used properly.

Kids are always taught not to play with fire, which is why lighters and matches are dangerous camping supplies. Forest fires have burned millions of acres of land and wildlife, making lighters especially dangerous in the woods while camping. Stakes are also dangerous, not only because they’re sharp enough to cut someone, but because they’re also short enough to trip someone. A sprained ankle is the most common camping injury, oftentimes caused by tripping over a stake. Tents are also dangerous because they are made with flame retardants and toxic chemicals that are linked to cancer. Flame retardants especially are harmful, causing problems like thyroid disorders, reproductive problems, and possibly cancer, which certainly aren’t side effects of consuming cannabis.


Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.' And he's just as unapologetically candid when the cameras are off, I learned after chatting with Crosby over the phone to discuss the premiere of the doc, which opens this weekend (July 19) in New York and Los Angeles. So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
