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.
This is one drawing I wish you could see in person. I scan at a poor resolution, one that can't be duplicated with out loss of detail. I finish paintings using white and this one just pops ;-)
I really enjoyed doing it. It is a gift for a friend.
Here we worry about medicine and growing and there now they are worry about the soil under their feet and growing food is more of a concern. I’ve read several times over the years that planting Cannabis can help clean and repair the soil. Why not at least try?!
Over politics? I think it’s a bit late for that. What ever it takes at this point is what the Japanese Government owes it’s people. Owes US the rest of the people that share this planet to plant this PLANT. Now.
Here is a link to an interesting related article:http://www.cannabisculture.com/content/2013/10/16/Can-Hemp-Marijuana-and-Mushrooms-Fix-Fukushima-Part-1-What-Happened
If all you can do is raise awareness than do that, or think about them, send them good vibes and love. No one likes to wonder if what we feed our children is killing them and the Japanese don’t have much of a choice right now. ;-(
I just made friends with a few people from Japan - one day I hope to visit. It’s so awesome having FB to see into their daily lives. I’m grateful for that on several levels. The differences... then you start to notice the same.
The same crimes worldwide, against people. People standing up for something that is wrong in their country.
Protests, punishment and in some cases ‘lack of’. India and rape.
I think we should know, and should say - wow, I am lucky that is not happening here. BUT THEN speak up and say “Really, in this day?!! - Should WE (as humans) allow that to be happening anywhere to each other? SPEAK UP!
Do you think you are here to live in the shadows without opinion? Then why have a brain. ^ ^^ This is me speaking to myself in my head. ^^^ LOL
I find me very hard to ignore.
Over a plant...
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
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.
It's back to nature. For us anyhow. More fresh veges, reading labels and focusing on what goes in before it comes out, in one way or another. If it can be stored in a box for 6 months we don't want it. Originally, I saw a post with a photo of a horse, it instantly made me smile. this is my version.
Is there anyone who claims not to know the benefits of choosing a salad over a cheese burger? Choice. What we put into out bodies. Food and medicine.
The choice should always be OUR own.
Every time I read HOW Health Canada is justifying 'weeding out the growers' - all I see is excuses and lies. Not to mention very unfair to ASSume everyone is a criminal just because they enjoy the passion of gardening.
OR never ASSUME that every grow room is a FACTORY/warehouse/Laboratory.
Although I’ll admit, hard to do other wise if your only form of cannabis education is via the mainstream media - I will say they are getting better.
I think it is more of a case you can’t hide the truth much fu*king longer!!
Many times people have a simple out door garden, a closet garden, small tents designed specifically for indoor growing. MUCH LIKE many grow systems that people use in their homes who are concerned about GMO’s. Many have converted rooms, even a basement. How many people brew their own beer/ wine? Worse - how many people have a meth lab set up in their homes? More than you know; after all that is where the true $$ is, with serious addiction come steady clients.
It is nice to have control of what goes into ONES body and WHY shouldn’t we?!
Not according to Health Canada- it is very dangerous.
The biggest danger is keeping it illegal.
PROHIBITION, the new changes are JUST a new form of PROHIBITION.
You also imagine (thanks to the media) immigrants, stoners and hardened crooks to be growing Cannabis - YOU forget or are not educated much on the others - The parents growing for children who are suffering with cancer or HIV, a husband growing for his wife... who needs it for her nausea and chronic pain. Kids growing it for parents!! BECAUSE it is easier and cheaper! Just like growing it in your back yard!
WHO has made it a crime? Well, Health Canada and it’s changes will now make it a crime for thousands who were all growing their own medicine. Thousands who were LEGALLY growing their own medicine.
Thousands now that won’t be able to grow or afford their medicine.
Thousands of Canadians and their families turned into criminals... why?
For wanting to feel better? Not hurting anyone. Not hurting themselves.
Where exactly is the crime?
The CRIME is letting Health Canada fu*king with peoples lives, physically and mentally causing them added unnecessary stress to already seriously ill Canadians.
I would never have believed ‘we’ as a country or people were capable... I guess it is the reason I’m living it. Hard to turn a blind eye to what pokes you in the other! LOL
Today I celebrate with banana bread and a clean Bong!
Wow - what a criminal I am. Thanks to Cannabis : my twitch tames to the point I can walk better, get out and garden, hang some laundry and make dinner for my family - your everyday stoner mom stuff. Thanks to cannabis my son can go to his job and have a somewhat normal life ;-) ...
Don’t ASSume all you ‘read’ is true. Ask someone who is ‘LIVING’ it.
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 <><
We watched an interesting doc. the other night, I was watching it and the guys joined me at some point. It was called: Food Matters http://www.foodmatters.tv/
We watched it on netflix and it was awesome.
We are juicing most mornings and they don't always taste so great - especially the kale BUT - They taste better than medicine, they taste better then sick!
I will say I made kale chips and LOVED them - 250 in the oven for 30-35 min.s
Rubbed in olive oil and a bit of lemon seasoning - YUM!
Must get more Kale tomorrow. Watch the documentary. It is informative.
Do you want to be healthy? I WISHED I had seen it an listened years ago!
I will admit I have had an exhausting week leaving me thinking... is this as good as it gets?
Is the slow to heal excuse just that ...
I have decided to do what I love best draw and paint.
Norm and I went out last night to pick up a few things. Walmart opened not long ago - too close for comfort. You can see it from my house, it is the quickest and easiest for Norm.
Not being well, I have had to rely on him to go shopping and this has led to endless frustration and numerous untold arguments.
I Am NOT a fan of their produce to begin with! I swear, buy something and almost over night it starts to shrivel in my fridge! Never buy anything in a bag, usually one or more is rotten.. it’s endless, last night I need garlic.
Garlic a little root plant right? That grows in the ground grown in Canada.
Do you think I could find any? Only garlic from China - not even another option or choice - there it is!! That is what divides Norm and I he will say “Screw it, I’m not driving all over for garlic...” and get it. I will say “Screw it I’m not buying it!” That is what we have to do.
Why can't I get some F&^%$ garlic from Canada - or anything else for that matter!?
We can invent all sorts of stuff, send men to the moon but can't grow a decent tomato year round without pumping it full of S*&^?
Why are our options stuff that has come from foreign soil, foreign pests, foreign
rules/laws/regulations for growing... across miles in crates and trucks for days, picked too early to ripen on the way!?
I hate this time of the year for vegetable shopping and being on a limited budget (aren’t we all) you lean towards deals instead of health!
Less off, in the cart yesterday was MEAT.
More spices, greens, fruit and WHOLE grain bread. No food in a box.
No Junk isle. I am on the road to recovery and I am taking him with me like it or not.
Don’t get me wrong - I get it! I get he’s tired, worked and then has to go get groceries and does not want to drive all over for garlic! When does it end and when will it start to change if we don’t act every chance we get?
Please the next time you go to the grocery store - make a point to buy Canadian.
As a matter of fact I was so pissed that I put stuff back and that is all we bought.
Going to feasting on mushrooms and sweet potatoes for a while! LOL - Choices limited.
Thank God, Canadian have been able to produce their own HOMEGROWN Herbal medicines. That could all change in the future. Just as it has been with Cannabis it may become illegal to grow other herbs and foods, then our limited choices even fewer and our chance to say no to GMO - out will go!
While in Canada - for as long as it remains I prefer to support fellow Canadians and keep my greens as FRESH and HEALTHY as possible - the best way to do that:
GROW your OWN!
Wait till you see my garden this summer !
How simple.. plant seeds.
Have you seen seed bombs
? I think they are cool! I also like the business cards with seeds in them! They usually come with a sling shot - seed bombs- added fun.;-)
I plan on making some this spring! It is a wonderful idea and an important one.
Keeping this world green for our health and sanity.
Seeds are what keeps us alive. Stop and think about that for one second. SEEDs
I've also added seeds into our diet; Chia and HEMP Daily- 2013 is going to be healthier around here. Imagine telling humans we can not plant seeds or grow plants, imagine someone telling you - no more vegetable gardens! No MORE FRESH herbs!
Something our parents and their parents and so on have been doing since the beginning of time to survive. Growing Plants. Vegetables and herbs and medicines.
Obesity is at an all time high and many kids do not even know what vegetables look like.
I think it should be mandatory in high school (elementary would be great too!) to grow something! I can imagine the popular choice of most high school students - good - teach them to do it RIGHT. IMAGINE!
Now imagine you grow that plant - just to feel better, and suddenly you are told you can not - and in fact you can go to jail just for growing that plant.
Imagine. Hopefully you will never have to. xox <><
Everyday it is most important to continue to plant the seeds:
