When you are ill, you shouldn't be forced travel for your medicine. That is one of the most ridiculous concepts to wrap your head around.
We should be making it easier for people to get their hands on medicine as opposed to making it harder. The patient should have the ultimate say in the treatment they prefer.
But today we live in Medical Tyranny. We have pharmaceutical cartels that buy political favors and sway legislation their way in order to maintain their profit margins at the expense of the masses.
While Drug Cartels are dangerous, at least they are honest about their shady motives, whereas the Pharma Cartels hide behind legislation and politics to conduct their business. We, the people, are stuck in the middle having to risk our liberty for good medicine.
Nobody should be forced to leave their state to gain access to marijuana and while we're eagerly waiting for the DEA to remove the current scheduling of cannabis, nobody is holding their breath.
It will be a unified cannabis movement that changes these laws...pressure from all sides. We must continue to fight for our rights, the rights to our own minds and bodies.
Any type of drug use...no matter the drug, should not be criminal. At the very most it should be a public health issue, but unless a user actually commits a crime...there should be no real problem with substance use.
The Drug War is ridiculous on all fronts, it defies logic and uses superstition to maintain the current policy that has harmed so many in the US. Whatever happened to "science and reason" as the main motivators for policy...unless of course, that was the political way of saying, "Sure..we're listening" when in reality...they never gave a damn. #CannaTalkAboutIt
