What Am I?
I am sick and tired of Health Canada and Steven Harper saying everyone they
provided licenses to are CRIMINALS.
WHY now? After providing thousands with permission to grow for years?
Because they REALIZE that YES indeed Cannabis will become a BILLION dollar industry and they can make $$$. LOT's of MONEY.
Who cares about the Health in Health Canada?
It is ONLY about money... for them.
For US it is about a life saving medicine that has changed our lives for the better!
ONE that WE were prescribed by a Dr. (not paid for) & granted permission from Health Canada to have a Designated Grower and provide Storm with his own medicine.
YES WE have invested MUCH. Blood , sweat & tears and $$$.
You would too if your only son was suffering from a terminal to progressive, no treatment no cure, chronic pain disease! We are after 7 years finally just now making up for all of it and providing for Storm and myself perfectly.
NOW Health Canada expects us to stop providing for ourselves - as we have for the past 7 years. We are expected to stop and start paying for cannabis -* the amount Storm would need, according to Health Canada's prediction of prices would be:
10 grams / day @ $5 = $18,200.00/year
@$3 = $10,920.00/year
@ $7 / gram = $25,480.00 < what H.C. suggests.
ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME? - people wonder why I swear. ;)
We can not afford it. Could you?
For something our DG is now producing for pennies?
I think NOT.
Simply because they ASSume, we are all criminals?
I know what I am and it is NOT a criminal.
All cops are Pigs.
All fat people are lazy.
All blonds are dumb.
All priests are pedophiles.
All muslims are terrorists.
All women are easy.
All men are assholes.
All politicians are criminals .. (hmmmmmmmm - verdict not yet in on this one.)
^ALL WRONG! ^ All negative, uneducated stigmas/stereo types.
This is no exception. It is wrong.
Criminals? Gardeners!? That is what they are!
GROWING A PLANT. A human right.
How we have survived - forever.
Who are you?!
I hope I have inspired more to do the same or at least THINK about it. We are powerful. We are Not criminals and we deserve the right to provide for ourselves as we have been for years. < Thanks to Health Canada.
A friend had some plants taken from his back yard. I am hoping it was just some thoughtless kid and NOT someone he knows. He is upset and stressed. I GET IT.
How do you think I feel when I worry about he proposed future of medical Cannabis in Canada today? Not being able to afford medicine that Storm needs. Medicine I need.
I get it.
Someone stole the plants - to get high. Not thinking much about anything other than themselves and getting a BUZZ. The real buzz is the BUZZ kill a patient now is dealign with over a plant. Suffering - a few months supply of medicine gone. Thief.
If this PLANT were decriminalized and be as IT SHOULD - a seed to plant for all human kind - no one would need to go around and STEAL it!
What other weeds do people do around and steal!? Not my dandelions.
Prohibition is turning people into criminals over plants.
Not the Plant and not the person - that is HUMAN NATURE, to want to feel good.
Please THINK before you consider lifting a plant you might see that does NOT belong to you. It could mean a lot more than getting high to someone - I could mean them being able to keep their job, or function with their family.. it could mean life or death.
A Thief is a Thief. If they steal from one with no guilt, they will steal from another.
It is sad. I don’t think anyone ever trusts a thief again. Including themselves.
I also feel there is an entire beautiful energy surrounding this plant - bad karma if you ask me. Not a high I would enjoy. Not one someone who truly appreciates cannabis would do.
VOTE & GROW it.
Perfect timing, visiting a friend and she was reading this article, I love it when everything literally falls into place.
This article in national geographic is one of the best at explaining sugar, IMO.
Sugar is considered as dangerous as the tobacco industry and as ruthless.
I personally had no idea sugar was in so much and for years fell into the fat free frenzy.
I believe the best blessings come in disguise - it was not until I became ILL that I started to eat healthier, fresh, organic and now, after I eat this last peanut butter cup- more sugarless! http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/08/sugar/cohen-text?rptregcta=join_free_np&rptregcampaign=20130826_lightbox_membership_nonhp_all_c#close-modal
When Storm was little I was guilty of sugar ignorance. Now addicted, mostly for the foods I Introduced into his life and diet (shitty gatekeeper) all I can do now is make all our meals healthier, shop for the best ingredients and educate. Storm is great he is the most health conscience of all of us.
NORM, now there is the serious addict.
ASK anyone. We still argue weekly, over his eating habit, he will go an entire day eating only candy - HIS choice. Only last week I said it quite simply - “If at the age of 51 knowing all we know about food, health, etc, - and if he lives in this house - HE DOES, yet he still will choose to consume an entire bag of twizzlers for lunch - Oh well. I have no control over him or his choices. Twizzle away. Make sure the insurance is paid.”
What else can one do? Generations have been brain washed and force fed without even realizing it.
EVEN with what I know I STILL WILL have this peanut butter cup. I am addicted.
For anyone that might be confused...
I am NOT saying: give your kids cannabis! Sugar is worse!
I am saying Wake up! Pay attention! Research and HELP your children!
I believe there is some serious fear mongering still continuing to go on today - and it is a wonderful distraction- while we continue to put toxins in our children, creating a future generation dependent on medicine. <$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Seriously, before cannabis your child will probably be introduced to these other common Highs and you are not even aware: Sugar high
- Cake, Pop, cookies, cereal
Children’s cough medicines
- sugar and chemical high
, prescribed medications
- more children are on a prescription medication now than ever in history, children as young as 2 have been diagnosed and prescribed antidepressants designed for ADULTS. Alcohol
, either from being introduced for a celebration or kids ‘sneaking’ alcohol is a common practice in many households. Alcohol addiction is one of the worst in the world. Tobacco
, as with alcohol is usually first introduced by a family member.
Don’t forget Coffee, energy drinks, glue & solvents...
What example are you setting for your child today?
WE are the original gatekeepers. How are your kids getting high?
Please STOP being distracted by fear mongering. Take control.
Accountants, administrative people, farmers, architects, sales representatives, Dr.s & nurses, dentists, florists, health workers, child care workers, bakers, cooks, mechanics, carpenters, brick layers, construction workers, lawyers, parents, teachers, software designers, actors, butchers, assemblers, cleaners, vets, fire fighters, police, real estate agents, dietitians, gardeners, hair dressers, hotel managers, secretaries, technicians, meteorologists, musicians, house painters, pipe fitters, plumbers, roofers, seamen, photographers, surgeons, taxi drivers, travel agents, web designers...
Please feel free to add to the list!
If you think the only one smoking cannabis are stoners. Think again.
Here is a list of the 10 most successful cannabis consumers: http://coed.com/2009/02/06/the-10-most-successful-potheads-on-the-planet-cool-enough-to-admit-it/
Enough is enough. WE are NOT criminals.
We are making a choice, that does not harm anyone.
In many chases a choice that makes us BETTER.
Better people, better health and better members of society.
We choose to use a plant, a natural substance to ease our pain, mentally and physically. Making
us criminals is an UNJUST system, used in the past to send Cannabis consumers to jail. The true crime is there are far more dangerous substance abuse daily. Instead of locking people up - we should be educating and informing on better decision making. Instead they are forcing us to USE dangerous, deadly opiates for pain in many cases especially. That is the CRIME!
<prove me wrong!
I REFUSE. I refuse to be trapped into a $$$ making scheme instigated by Health Canada because of their lack of professionalism and education and understanding.
In Canada, many were given the right to produce their own medicine/cannabis or obtain a designated grower - by our own government. Many invested time and knowledge and finances to do this and be successful at it.
Now our government has decided against this....
To which I say: Too bad.
Who the F*ck do they think they are, to play with peoples lives like they do? To turn people into criminals over growing a plant?
*NEVER forget that is all you are doing! Growing plants! It is WRONG to send someone to jail for growing plants. ESPECIALLY if at one point they had permission to do so.
We are not criminals. The criminals are in suits (working for Steven Harper) making decisions that affect the lives of seriously sick and suffering, mind games is exactly what they are playing at now, and it is shameful.
We are not criminals.
If you think I’m over stretching it on this one think again.
Do you use ANY of the mind altering substances? Every one of them is a Mind altering substance. FACT
Research Sugar, introduced as a drug. Until someone decided it was candy... $.
Cannabis is a plant, use in the past fro everything from Cholic to a tooth ache, and until someone decided it was a Dangerous DRUG it was a HERB.
Never mind any of that.., ALL of the substances on the left have been attributed to death. Sugar - again - a major factor in obesity, diabetes and more. Alcohol.. abuse, physical hard to a body, impairment, poisoning, responsible for date rape, murder and “ I was drunk...” and more.
SO PLEASE, stop telling me, I am wrong. Me and the other few hundred thousand (who admit to it) and counting that believe Cannabis is a better CHOICE. A Healthier choice.
ONE for using Cannabis as my medicine and also for all those that wish to use recreationally. Compare the choices and statistics.
THEN lets continue the conversation.
While your at it you can read about Cannabis helps repair the brain.
If you have never tried Cannabis, your opinion is invalid when you judge someone else while you hold that cup of coffee & donut and your evening with a cocktail or two...
Ignorance is bliss... ? How about when it is killing our kids? Still feeling blissful?
How about when you get a F*&^% twitch that drives crazy? Did you know it was a common side effect of one of earliest “mood” drugs approved by the “who’s, who’s”
and pushed to the millions as ‘mama’s little helper’. And tongue* darting... lovely.
Twitches that never go away. They made a pill to try, but that just paralyzed motor skills.
My researching Cannabis just made me think I DONT get it.
No one dies from it. People LIKE it. Prefer it to toxic (mentally & physically) alcohol,
It has proven healing effects on the human body. WTF?
Over and over.. then I watched a doc called. The Marketing Of Madness. Never is Cannabis mentioned. You realize the reason when you start to learn about the numbers $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
You feel sick to your stomach when you realize how it is all decided. A bunch of people -most paid by pill companies to make up ‘DIAGNOSES”. Don’t believe me? WATCH IT!
Then, research even a little and see it is all true.
A sign? - I’m sitting in a office a book falls on the floor (me being a neat freak clean up all the magazines at the Dr.s office ). Book falls out again. All about the DMS.
Pay attention... Our children are the main ‘client’ they want.
A lifetime subscriber, prescriber!!
I get children are ill. I KNOW. A mental illness is very different from a physical one; although a physical one does allot of mental damage, and some children are mentally ill - they do need professional help and possibly medication.
BUT and this is a BIG fricken BUT
To say a child that puts up a fuss/throws a temper 2-3 times a week should be medicated? Are you kidding me? This is new to the DSM this year - the age it is geared to >>> 6-12. <<< But younger may be diagnosed.
We’ve all been there! Storm did it to me over a stuffed penguin!! People thought I was murdering him, I will never forget it ;-) I had to buy it! I didn’t know what to do.. I talked to him about it later, and told him that it was not a nice thing to do and explained why - that I might not be able to afford it and was embarrassed. He got it. THEY are smart little beings! They need so much love and much attention - so what! Deal with it! We brought them into the world!
SUCK IT UP! Focus on your children.
DO not medicate them, with PILLS or food or T.V. for that matter.
Dose them with TLC! Attention and love.
Ignorance is bliss... wait a few years when a pill they are on for ‘depression’ kills them.
It actually makes them kill themselves. Don’t believe me? Research PROZAC.
I dare you. IF you care about your children you WILL!
Because, I love kids. I once was one. ;-)
What a terrible way to learn about life... on DRUGS. The legal ones!!!
I read about Bulling all the time and it is very sad, many cases lead to kids attempting suicide. Too many are successful.
There is constant talk - How to take the bully out of schools. I don't think that is where one should start I think they should take it out of homes.
AS in TURN OFF the television.
Storm said - he is not a bully and he watched TV and played the games, but if fact we did not watch a lot of television - when we did it was usually as a family and would discuss much - the same is true today ;-)
In just 10 years I cannot believe the 'quality'- OR rather LACK of it on television.
It is easy to understand how children are bullies when we witness it daily on television, and in MOST cases the bullies they are watching are NOT other children - it is other adults.http://www.wktv.com/news/local/New-study-shows-bad-behavior-linked-to-kids-watching-too-much-TV-192380841.html
<the amount on this topic is overwhelming online. Also another sign to start paying attention.http://news.softpedia.com/news/TVs-in-Children-s-Bedrooms-Linked-to-Bad-Behavior-and-Alienation-108173.shtml
How can we expect them to be nice and treat others with respect when we have such examples like Tots in tiara's, the Desperate housewives - nasty name calling and making fun of people. If it is o.k. to watch - why not act it out? It seems to get results on television. They see brats, bullies and bitches 24/7.
How do you expect them to behave differently?
T.V. shows making girls mean:http://theclicker.today.com/_news/2011/10/05/8166200-are-tv-shows-making-girls-mean?lite
"Because they are not directly participating in any of these hijinks, most viewers feel that watching reality TV is a harmless recreation, an escape from their own lives. Yet some psychologists are discussing whether reality shows are as harmless as most people believe. After all, whose reality are we viewing? And is it healthy to constantly observe people who are unafraid of any recourse or repercussions?" Read more:http://brainworldmagazine.com/the-reality-of-reality-tv-can-viewing-bad-behavior-on-the-small-screen-affect-the-way-we-treat-each-other/
TURN it off.
Give your kid a book!!
When you do watch T.V. talk to your children!
Watch, soon you will start to read about the miracle medicine that Cannabis is. Not the snake oil that we have been led/lied to believe. I know because I am paying attention - not just to Cannabis as a medicine. I am reading about HEMP & the unlimited benefits from people juicing to cement.
Go to the Grocery store and right there beside the Broccoli your cannabis to juice or add to a salad! Soon... Juice Cannabis! <
Read all about it.
I had someone ask me with the look of 'REALLY?' on her face when I was telling her how after surgery, I used the vaporizer and was never sick again. I see the 'REALLY?' Look when I tell them how great Storm is doing, and now I see the 'really!!' look from a few close friends that are in my company when I medicate and can see many times; my twitch come to an instant halt if only for a few moments, after hours of endless twitching. So I get it! I see the look often enough. I love it.
I really is depressing when you realize the many benefits of Cannabis that people could have been using and embracing and being educated on for years if not fo the STUPID - Simple word for exactly what it is. Stupid laws, prohibiting the use and education of the plant Cannabis. As for people thinking it's snake oil, well - there sure are many people all around the wold willing to defend it's medicinal benefits.
I have witnessed it for a few years now first hand. Thank God.
Don't believe me. Get curious?
Would you not like an alternative to pain medication?
One that does not upset your stomach? How about Nausea?
I am living proof & would not have believed it, had I not seen it with my own eyes and stomach! LOL
What about insomnia, PTSD, depression
The ONLY snakes are those that keep it from the people.
For what ever reason $$$$, Power, stupidity.
Seed for all humankind to plant.
Tomorrow: Guest Blog
Tuesday: Very personal *FIRST video blog. Leap of Faith.
When I draw for someone I ask them questions. It was a heart breaking reality for me when reminded that Alex does not and has not communicated since little. Alex is completely non-verbal.
Dad told me they call him 'Alexander Salamander'! That's enough.
;-) Boys, toads, bugs, all I wanted to draw was happy, at the same time keeping the mood very boy. ;-) What an awesome little boy he is . That photo - wow ❤ look at that smile!!!
*and promise me you will watch the link below.
I have known about Alex for a while - I have already talked about him in a blog.
I am so thrilled that Axel is finally getting some media attention.
Imagine how frustrated you are that you can not use cannabis - recreationally because you want to enjoy and relax- I see nothing wrong with it. But...
O.k. Now imagine that your child is seriously ill and Cannabis eases his/her pain and
they can not use it medically. Imagine that level of frustration.
This is Alex ❤: http://www.kptv.com/story/20660400/medical-marijuana-used-to-treat-autism
I am really getting tired of hearing a Dr. say that "the long term use..."
Look around. There is already a lot of long term use proof. Centuries of it.
Do they forget the long term use of Prescribed medications!? I looked into that when I thought that my son was going to live a life on pain killers & Morphine from the age of 4. The long term use of all of the medications I was looking at was pretty much the same- and to be honest with you - I'm not going there
Cannabis - Thank God is Storm's medicine and thank God for Alex too, who looks like he is at PEACE when medicated! Imagine how his parents feel to watch him, see the difference and then -know they have to stress over political bullshit! I won't even pretend to imagine what they deal with. All I can do is draw and pray for their continued strength, send good vibes!!
They live with this heart ache of watching Alex suffer as it is.
I really think these decisions should be strictly between a Dr. and patient and parent.
The final call parent.
Because no one will live our lives for us.Unless you suffer from the disease you will never completely understand the symptoms.
Cannabis is the safer alternative- but you now what, don't believe me,
Please - PROVE me wrong. PLEASE
visit Alex's parents facebook page & show them & ALEX some support! https://www.facebook.com/alex.autism.rage.mmj
- If we only all started to really support each other .. do what ever it if you can't draw then say HELLO and we are thinking of you!!
Anything - Strengh in numbers.
Recently I watched a documentary- Radio Bikini
I like to do this when I am painting my cartoons. I can watch, listen and paint at the same time.
Woo hooo Multitasking!
For what ever reason this doc. caught my eye.
Wow- what can I say, unless you watch the doc.
you might not get the toon.
How was this able to happen - EVER? Justified?
So much destruction - still. Lies and BULL in the name of government research and science.
From start to fishing - it reeks of sneaky lying. Here have fun party it up! Ice cream and beer!
Sorry that you will die a horrible, lonely death from radiation exposure. Never mind going to an island and removing the people who have always lived there.
I will NEVER be a person who believes in this way of thinking. It is a crime against ALL humanity that this was ever permitted to happen in the first place. I was not aware.
I was blind but now I see. You should watch it, should this insanity ever tried to be justified again We ALL need to STAND Up! Shout! Scream until we are heard.
It was interesting. I watched it on Netflix. I found a few sites when I googled where you could watch.
I thank God I was born in a beautiful country known for peace.
I am incredibly proud of Canada for these reasons. I hope it never changes.
I think children should also watch - (older kids) they will be in charge of these decisions later in life. If you do not know you can not make an educated decision.
