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.
Music for your blog reading enjoyment:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dzs1K3caXJk
Wow, this cartoon smacked me right in the head ;-) Awesome.
It started with a joke from my best bud Cathy.♥
I was stressed wondering what to draw for 4/20?!
The universal day of
Celebration for Cannabis!!!
Grown from a seed.
Made by *GOD.
(*original patent holder)
Medical, Recreational, Hemp, Food, Fuel..
It's the day and I want to say THANK YOU!
I have said it so many times, I thank God daily for this Plant!
Give us this Day our daily Bud... <3 Wow. YES, I read recently how powerful that prayer is; Give us this dayour daily bread, -not thanks for yesterday, or make sure I have it tomorrow. Give us THIS day. Focus on today.
.. and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and that ^ ^ ^ That simply put means ^ ^ ^ : PEACE, PEOPLE!
Religion aside... who can argue with those lines? How else are we going to get ahead, clearly WAR is not the answer! Thank you Marvin, now in my head for the rest of the day.
People all around the world who suffer over a plant. A plant less toxic than many others, proven helpful to ease pain, yet illegal and lives destroyed because of it.
WTF? O.M.God. How disappointing.
A PLANT. While others rape, kill, abuse, terrorize, suffer & starve needlessly...
enough with the bullshit distraction.
FOCUS on the REAL problems at hand.
Rise Up people! Speak up! <3 Celebrate this Plant! Let it be a symbol of change.
It all starts with a SEED!!! Life.
So.. Yes! Give us this Day our daily bud, and thank you Lord for it!
I do! Everyday! Keeping the Love of my life happy - How could I not give thanks?
Celebrate 4/20, Spread Peace and Love !!! - there are already enough assholes doing the opposite;-)xox <><
I am currently reading : High Society By Mike Jay http://www.amazon.com/High-Society-Central-Mind-Altering-History/dp/1594773939
And immensely enjoying it. I love to read always have - not always an easy task lately with my twitch being what it is it can make reading difficult even distracting - so whatever I read has to be interesting to keep me riding out twitches between paragraphs. This book is so interesting.
Educating. The more I know the more confused I am.
Since the beginning of time people want to get high, or achieve some sort of mental stimulation that heightens experiences or makes us feel at peace. Every time prohibition of some sort steps in - people move on, usually to a stronger substance and a new drug problem arises. What amazes me is Cannabis has always been one of the safest, oldest and most widely used substance on the planet and the fact that it is still illegal, IMO is just another distraction. Much like television.
Focus on the plant that people want, grow and use most commonly:
Government + control + prohibition(lies) = jail = $$$$$$$
To read the US government has taken out all kinds of patents on Cannabis - something they have claimed for years has no medicinal value, they have made millions suffer for it. LIES. Google Patent of Cannabis or just the number (for just one of the many patents now taken out BY the American Government on Cannabis. ONE NOW for the treatment of CANCER!! Using Cannabis : http://www.google.com/patents/US20130059018
I am angry as a Canadian, we have and continue to suffer because of their lies also, as does the rest of the world. No wonder people are upset.
BUT WHY?? I keep asking myself, WHY is it still happening??
Because WE LET IT! We are letting lives be ruined and people suffer over a plant.
IT is not the Plant. It is the PEOPLE.
People who have problems with addiction.
People who do not understand the concept of ‘moderation’.
People who are hurt, lonely abused and use drugs as an escape.
(Much like the Rats at rat park! Mentioned in the book) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_Park
People who want power and money and use lies to get it.
People. People. People. WE are the problem NEVER the plants.
Clearly PROHIBITION DOES not work.
Educate the PEOPLE. ONE LOVE. We need to help each other and stand up for what we believe in. We are not criminals. Just people.
As expected all thought out the book, what has been the biggest problem all thought out history and still is today?
ALCOHOL. < But that $$ money maker isn’t going anywhere is it.
There are far more serious drugs available and widely used and there are even more on the horizon - it’s what PEOPLE do.
Stop the lies, prohibition and educate children on choices and consequences,
SHARE your knowledge. If they don’t believe you - tell them to prove you wrong!
To date - no one has.
The first prohibition...
God saying “Don’t eat off the tree of knowledge.”
How well did that work?
Above my desk for the past 5 years. <><
We say In God we Trust, it's on every American $$$.
The USA president put his hand on the bible... is this all for show? Have ye so little faith?
It says in the Bible, fist page: 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
I do not recall anywhere in the bible where it states that one person, country, organization can take out a patent on one of God's creations. Is it just me? But here it is, BEHOLD...
USA Patent on Cannabis: http://www.google.com/patents/US6630507
W.T.F? I also have watched several documentaries on companies like Monsanto trying to hold patent on plants in India- Until crops started to fail and EVEN MORE people started to starve and die & have since decided this is not a good thing.
IF you don't believe in God - then substitute in my drawing who ever you want!
Imagine Mother nature, Buddha or your friendly family farmer! What ever it takes for us to get it and help educate others before this continues to get out of complete control.
Consider it the religion of all humanity - One Love
WHY would we let any ONE person, government, country - hold a patent to a plant!
2 words should be popping into your mind... WORLD HUNGER
Yesterday I watched a Doc., it was about beautiful Burma : They Call It Myanmar: Lifting the Curtain.
< click *Well worth the watch. I was touched at the comment if they have 3 meals a day (and I'm not talking Popeye's chicken or Swiss Chalet) they consider themselves rich. Their children lucky if they can go to school for one year. ;-( Then it's off to work - job's I cannot imagine doing. They are peaceful people with a great faith that have been neglected for far too long. They inspire.
You should watch it and see what happens when we lose control.
WE lose control when we let others have it, and to have it over what is most important to every single being on this planet - nutrition/food- is incredibly frightening and quite stupid of us. HOW many are we??? So this toon is about Cannabis and so much more- it is about every single plant and seed on this planet that we all MUST share.
I love plants as you can see below I have them on every window in my home , every room... what's next? I'm afraid to think of the possibilities if they continue the direction they are going.
Another few great Documentaries to watch.. http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/poison-on-the-platter/http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/life-running-out-of-control/
^^ One of my favorites. There are SO many - I wonder why?
Watch or don't, Monsanto is hoping you don't.
xox <>< ❤☮☯
It always amazes me to read about Cannabis and Dr.s. You see Dr.s over the years have supported Cannabis and Cannabis research. Years ago it was prescribed by Dr.s for everything from Colic to cramps. When the U.S government 'took it off shelves' to say - Dr.s did not agree and were often public about it. I just read once again The American Medical Association
and the The American College of Physicians
and the American Public Health Association
and the American Nurses Association
are strong supporters for Medical Cannabis and want research encouraged.
They know people who suffer and cannabis helps, I read about it all the time, Dr.s who get Cannabis for their family members. Some just to make the end of life more enjoyable & pain free (controlled).
So time and time again - I wonder - then why not stand up for what is right? Why are we letting those who are motivated by money and lies continue to stop the human race from doing what we believe is best for our own lives. It is NOT about getting high - trust me - I know many medical patients and they wish they could get 'high' most just are able to function. So since this war on Drugs is the failure that it is, the lies about cannabis hard to further contain... speak up. Remind your Dr.s about the facts. Share the opinions of their peers on Cannabis research and medical value. Perhaps they just don't know. Either way it's time. Time to let those who truly want to help us - do just that. Leave the police to deal with CRIMINALS and the politicians to - what ever it is they 'claim' to do.
*Note- I am a Canadian. I am reading an American book about Cannabis (and enjoying)
My cartoons can "sadly" easily have different words replaced the Canadian
Medical Association - (but we already do recognize Cannabis and it's medicinal value) or replace the DEA with the Mounties and our own FAT CAT - S.H. The facts are - we are all fighting this insane battle. ALL OVER the world.
How many are we?
Educate your Dr.s, Educate your kids, parents, friends and family.
Plant the seed ;-)
God gave us ALL this gift. This seed. A TINY little seed. NOW hear this:***For a United States patent the invention must never have been made public in any way, anywhere in the world, a year before the date on which an application for a patent is filed.
LOL!! Read on and you will understand my reason for LOL
I don’t understand how anyone can patent a plant that has been on this earth by our creator and used since (first documented) 2727 BC *** I’d say thats a little longer than a year - that’ Cannabis has been made public.
A plant that God placed on this earth for all to use. Page ONE of the bible 11And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
I can understand placing a patent on an invention, of course but the invention here again was made by GOD. I mean come on! What next patent air - so with each breath we will owe someone $? Do you KNOW it is ILLEGAL in some places to collect RAIN WATER!? RAIN water! It puts my stomach into knots. If you know and don’t care you should be ashamed. You don’t care because it is not affecting you... but it affecting someone, someone who is thirsty and does not have the simple luxury of water! Water, plants - what next?
I shake my head when someone informed me - in a simple e mail I got Google:6630507
Guess what comes up: the US Patent office. Guess who has a patent on Cannabis? The U.S government. Don’t believe me GOOGLE: 6630507
I shake my head because not too long ago The U.S government tried to say Cannabis has no medicinal value. Here is what is listed below:
Inventors: Hampson; Aidan J. (Irvine, CA), Axelrod; Julius (Rockville, MD), Grimaldi; Maurizio (Bethesda, MD) THEY forgot to mention GOD. A country that claims “In God we Trust.” Clearly they don’t trust him enough to give him credit for his plant!!

PCT No.:PCT/US99/08769 PCT Pub. No.:WO99/53917 PCT Pub. Date:October 28, 1999 Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants Abstract
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia. Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidoil, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses useful in the method of the present invention. A particular disclosed class of cannabinoids useful as neuroprotective antioxidants is formula (I) wherein the R group is independently selected from the group consisting of H, CH.sub.3, and COCH.sub.3. ##STR1##
So you don’t think it is about money? Think again.
Breath just Breath - while it’s still free.....
From now on each original will have a tiny real seed in the bottom. Framed.. with a sign on the back that says IN case of EMERGENCY - break glass ;-)
