"What keeps you from (or kept you from) trying cannabis for your health?"
The one scare-tactic that worked to delay me from trying cannabis was the urban legend that "weed is a gateway drug!" The very suggestion that if you smoke a joint, you are going to want to try other "harder" drugs, was enough to keep me off of cannabis most of my life.
I can honestly say, after years and years of consuming cannabis, I have no desire to try any other drugs. If anything, cannabis helped me ween myself off of pharmaceuticals I was receiving for pain and anxiety! I can use cannabis and I don’t have to worry about debilitating side effects, and edibles taste WAY better than any ibuprofen or diazepam I’ve ever had!
