Where all the Pharma meds and crazy diets failed...#Cannabis provided relief to this little girl. And you still think #cannabis is bad for children?

It comes down to "how" you use it...of course nobody wants kids toking bongs...but when it comes to life threatening diseases/conditions...don't you think that these kids deserve a fighting chance?

More Prohibitionist Deceptions



Scientific American reported in 1990: “The alarming statistics, cited by testing advocates, to demonstrate the high costs of drug abuse . . . do not always accurately reflect the research on which they are based. In fact, some of the data could be used to ‘prove’ that drug use has negligible or even beneficial effects.” (March 1990, page 18)

One of the examples given is the often cited statistic former president George Bush utilized in 1989: “Drug abuse among American workers costs businesses anywhere from $60 billion to $100 billion a year in lost productivity, absenteeism, drug-related accidents, medical claims and theft.” Yet according to a 1989 assessment by NIDA, all such claims derive from a single study that grew out of a 1982 survey of 3,700 households.

The Research Triangle Institute (RTI) found that households where at least one person admitted having used marijuana regularly reported average incomes 28% lower than average reported income of otherwise similar households. RTI researchers ascribed the income difference to “loss due to marijuana use.”

RTI then extrapolated costs of crime, health problems and accidents to arrive at a “cost to society of drug abuse” of $47 billion. The White House “adjusted” for inflation and population increases to provide the basis for Bush’s statement.

Yet the RTI survey also included questions about current drug use. The answers revealed no significant difference between income levels of households with current users of illegal drugs, including cocaine and heroin, and other households.

Thus the same statistics “prove” that current use of hard drugs does not result in any “loss,” in contrast to a single marijuana binge in the distant past!

The Amsterdam Model






Since adopting a policy of tolerance and non-prosecution of cannabis/hashish smokers (it is available in cafes and bars) and rehabilitation and diversion programs for hard drug users, Holland has seen a substantial reduction in cannabis consumption among teenagers and a 33% drop in the number of heroin addicts. The strategy of separating cannabis sales from hard drug dealers by bringing pot above-ground has been quite successful. (L.A. Times, August 1989). In 1998, despite constant pressure from the U.S. government and the DEA, the Dutch government has totally refused to recriminalize marijuana!

In 2005, Canadian researchers made a groundbreaking discovery that would forever discredit the myth that marijuana causes brain damage. What they found was an opposite effect. That is, THC – the main chemical in marijuana and the reason why users get ‘high’ – can actually cause new brain cells to grow.

The government has known about the Cancer fighting properties in #Cannabis for many decades now, yet they withheld this life-saving medicine from the public. What for?

Profits of course! Profits and Power...

It's high time we end this War on People...#EndTheDrugWar

The War on Drugs is a pressing social issue that impacts us all, users and non-users alike.

But how does the Drug War effect those who do not use drugs?

1. Your Tax Dollars are spent on incarcerating non-violent people. How could the US benefit with $50 Billion Dollars extra a year?
2. In addition, your tax dollars keep these folks behind bars while these prisoners make things for the military and the government on slave wages.
3. Unregulated drug markets means that your kids are more exposed to the industry and it becomes easier to get your hands on narcortics.
4. Infringement of your personal liberties...the government can now tell you what you can and cannot consume...meaning you have no more freedom in this scenario.
5. Creates distrust in Law Enforcement.

The list goes on and on. The point being that Cannabis prohibition and drug prohibition in general has only created negative aspects within society. While we don't advocate 'legalizing' all drugs, all drug use should be decriminalized.

After 40 years of implementing a failed policy...don't you think it's time we change our ways?

Some medical associations, deep in the pockets of Big Pharma, suggests that cannabis research is needed prior to legalizing medical marijuana despite the fact that we do have over 2 decades of information to pull from in relation to the medical benefit and potential adverse effects.

They say, "If we want to legalize cannabis for recreational use, the medical aspect should be left out of the equation..." of which I respond...

"We would have researched the living hell out of the plant, if the DEA and the FDA didn't stonewall research for the past 40 years and based on this truth, legalization in any form is a step in the right direction...especially when it comes to medical research of the plant..."

In other words, we have been trying to crack the medical cannabis code and it's relation to human health...however we have had to jump through miles of red tape due to the scheduling of cannabis.

Since the DEA/FDA and Congress are hesitant to decriminalize or de-schedule cannabis, it is up to the 'People' to create those avenues. Thus, if these doctors want to have 'research before legalization' they should advocate de-scheduling cannabis immediately so more research can be conducted.

However, time is not on the side of those who can benefit from cannabis and thus, it is the responsibility of the people to decriminalize and legalize regardless of research in order to create a political environment where cannabis research isn't demonized by the government.

If the government doesn't want to bend to the will of the people...it's the responsibility of the people to bend the will of the government.
