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 <><
Tomorrow is the BIG day! Cannabis will be celebrated all over the world! What started as a time for a bunch of guys to meet to smoke some 'marijuana' at 4:20 everyday , has turned into a world wide celebration! On April 20th - 4/20.. People all around the world unite and light up! AWESOME!
At first I thought it was 'neat' but then to see it grow and share! People get together to share, hang out, talk, laugh, educate and stand up for something they believe in!
Medicinal and recreational, the crimes against Humanity regarding this plant are shameful. Every year it grows larger, parades, marches, sit -in's & MORE! Think about it... When else do they do this? Not enough times I'm afraid. We should have a world wide NO GMO day! Or Celebrate the children day and stop abuse!
I was asked to post a cartoon early at 7:00 p.m. my time - because it is April 20 on the other side of the world already! ;D Yes, I will admit in my small mind, I did not think of that at first! How many realize the problems regarding cannabis are all around the world? Some people even die because of it.
I do! I have been educated! I plan on doing what ever I can to help educate others!
If it is as simple as drawing a cartoon that will get some attention, create a curiosity...
I have another new toon to post tomorrow a.m. ;-)
Have a great time all who plan on doing something special for 4/20! Remember to do it 'peacefully' < something asscoiated with pot smokers, and I'm fine with that!
Stand up for what you believe in! Why else are you here?
I'll admit I thought you could get high licking the toad.
I did a cartoon about it a while back & someone educated me on the facts.
I am so glad he did because I find it really funny that you don't lick the toad you milk it.
I have another toon already in the works.
What is a drug?
There will always be a drug. We can't ban, prohibit or kill off everything that is. To say Cannabis is one of the most dangerous, is just lies.
Just like I was told not to lick toads!
Not that that was ever a concern of anyones. I was also told 'not to eat the little black berries- they would make me sick and die,' and I never did. I was told not to drink too much - but did time and time again.
I am ALSO sure at some point, I was told that smoking marijuana was going to fry my brain. My brain feeling a little fried these days, the only thing that seems to help me is Cannabis! Thank God for small miracles.
It is a small miracle on this planet FULL OF PLANTS, that can make us feel better or poison us. I read in places where few plants grow - like Alaska - the people there would 'get high' by air deprivation, and spinning. Cannabis is safer.
Where there is a will there is a way.
Just like people creating bongs out of apples and pineapples.
Time to stop treating people like criminals, educate them. It is human nature/desire to alter the brain and mood, some will learn how to milk a toad - me... no.
I will stick to Cannabis, perhaps a buddha beer from time to time.
Moderation people ❤❤❤
I saw this photo and was pissed - this, this is why we are fighting - as medicinal patients. Because of someone famous who people see- a 'ROCK STAR'
and think it's all a joke. So I thought if I could, what would I say to Chris...
Dear Chris Brown:
Regarding this photo and recent text
"Oh don't worry," "It's medicinal!! Lol." http://ca.eonline.com/news/368346/chris-brown-smokes-three-joints-of-medicinal-marijuana-see-the-picture
Do you think this is funny? It appears you are making a joke.
Please e me so I may enlighten you on our sons medicine
that helps him with chronic pain, because of his progressive to terminal bone disease. Chronic pain suffered since birth.
I am sure it is difficult for you to understand - not experiencing it (thank God).
His 'Medical Cannabis' has been life saving.
Actually, I have a ‘few’ friends that all rely on this medicine (mothers, fathers, children - all races all ages) in order to just live a normal life. I know a few mothers (and fathers) that could happily share their opinions with you.
Do you think it’s a joke that more black Americans (many more than caucasian) are in jail for doing what you joke about? They are not ‘rock stars’ so they will probably lose their home, jobs & families AND go to jail - for what you brag about.
I don’t find it very funny. Many very seriously ill people need this medicine and are already having a hard time because of such ‘jokes’ and ignorance.
You are setting an example. Unfortunately.
We though you would have learned that by now.
Kindly show others a bit of compassion.
Please educate your self - Here is a wonderful start:
BREAKING the TABOO (*Yeah Richard! ♥)http://www.youtube.com/user/breakingthetaboofilm
I have said it before.
Walk in my shoes, learn what we have learned about Pharmacetuical drugs and then tell me you would not give your child Cannabis under the same circumstance!
Watch this link and tell me this mother or father is wrong
- LISTEN to the DR. then .. imagine it is your child.http://live.huffingtonpost.com/r/segment/parents-choose/50b663372b8c2a5d91000184
I am so tired of hearing this argument.
WE live it. WE see it's miracle and I <3 these parents!
SHARE - teach! Sooner or later Dr.s will have to agree.
AS PARENTS we must demand what is best for our children. ASK them - what would they do if it was their child?
The next time someone says - but there are medications for nausea - yes there are and while you are at it - LOOK up the side effects!! Dr.s have no problem prescribing drugs to children - but have issues with a PLANT? * That has never caused OVERDOSE or DEATH.
WHAT parent in their right mind would give their children an opiate that they can become addicted to or even die from? I'd rther watch my child laugh and happy than be a zombie on the sofa- TRUST me - I saw him for far too long sit and suffer and not play because he was in pain. UNTIL he tried cannabis.
TALK to your Dr.
The choice is Clear- Cannabis!!!
I feel great about this news! Can you tell? I drew this cartoon last week in bed and finally felt good enough to paint it today ;-))) - so Thank You God! xox <><
* Note: Not all Dr.s I have been blessed with the best. ♥ .
Talk to your Dr. Help educate them.
They are ONLY human. <super smart but still human ;-)
Weight loss is one of the biggest magic bullets around. Take this pill and you'll be thin. IF only. WAKE up Sheeple!!!
If that was the case would there be any obese people? No
I am sick and tired of advertising that in very small print says results NOT typical - well you know what show us what is TYPICAL so we can make an honest, educated decision ourselves. These pills that are hurting and even killing people - because of advertising that is ''false" should be banned. Stopped. Hold accountable any business that uses such false advertising. Next time you see an add that says results are not typical - MOVE on. That is a way for them to protect their ass- when you don't get the results you saw in the magazine! Stop buying the magazine, WRITE to magazines and ask them to tell you the truth if you are going to be spending your money on them.. The best thing you can do is educate yourself & your kids! Teach them about photoshop (some neat examples below), false advertising and to research ANY medication- pills- herbal or synthetic that they plan on putting into their one beautiful body! xox
From the photos below - even the beautiful they touch up!
No such thing as perfection so why lie? Teach love comes in all shapes, colors and moles!
More and more older people are turning back to cannabis! Why? Because although old they are far from stupid! As we age we go to the Dr. and are given pills for our aches and pains.. they come with age for most of us. That is life, happy to still be a part of it.
Unfortunately, as we continue to age we are prescribed more pills for each ache and pain, sleep problems, stress, tired-- the list is endless. Chemical cocktails, add to this already deadly mix- the fact that we forget! Accidental overdoes is a common problem with the aged.
That does not just happen to older people- it can happen to us all when not feeling well or distracted. It is not a problem with cannabis. There is a 'home' in Isreal where Cannabis is handed out to patients who need it and benefit from it and because of -LIVING proof- it is becoming even more common. The next generation under the boomers - I was born in 64
are watching our parents being drugged for this and that. No wonder so many are turning back to something they KNOW makes them feel better- Still gives them a desire to live! Watch this short vid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0VG3prgCDc
*if you click the CC box on the bottom you will get subtitles!
It is just one of many examples! It is NEVER too late to try and feel better and that is our right! Share this with your parents!
*Moderation. As much as I talk about anti booze- I do know several people who have always been able to have 'a drink'. A drink after a long day - to take the edge off.. relax, unwind with a glass of wine. A (ONE) drink. EVERYTHING in moderation! My husbands dad was well into his 80's and said a shot of rum- kept his blood flowing. One shot - that was it. Usually in his evening coffee. He died because of complications due to a car accident, it was not the rum - and he was by far one of the 'SHARPEST' pencils in the box. KEEP IN MIND, studies show that alcohol is more damaging to the body and brain than marijuana.
*the bong- Storm and I went to a great little new store - http://www.thekockydog.ca/
nice to not have to drive to TO. for stuff.. any how I spotted this bong (a giant penis) and had to giggle! I said "who buys this..." and Storm said -"NOT YOU!" LOL so I thought I'd have fun with this toon! Of course I thought of the sippy cup* my friend Sue has a photo on FB with her and this cup and it makes me crack up every time I see it. Life is about having fun and feeling good. Not work, work till you die. So have a laugh and educate your elders about Cannabis! <>< XOX
Ignorance is bliss... It was until I started to research all this Cannabis stuff! I then was turned onto GMO information and documentaries on STUFF. Cannabis is STILL illegal even after centuries of '0' reported deaths, proven medicinal qualities and numerous (MILLIONS) of first hand accounts from the PEOPLE on how it HELPS. There is a growing (no punn intended) concern regarding GMO's from Salmon to tomatoes (GREAT DOC - WATCH FREE CLICK HERE)
-who will say what the long term affect of GMO's will be - a rise in cancer? That is what is expected ... EXPECTED!? Don't believe me research it for yourself. I DARE YOU! Yes because ignorance is bliss.
Too many would rather turn on the tube and be amused - worse - possibly educated by the countless mind melting reality T.V.; NOT a REALITY of mine!! Thank God. Sadly in many cases children copy parents and we will have a new generation of mind melted drones - who will not have a clue what to do when they really NEED to. . they will eat all this crap and die at an earlier age - Oh wait! That is happening NOW!
For the first time in history children are dying at a earlier age with diabetes and obesity & childhood cancers on the rise. Passing before their parents. ;-(
Do you know that the average very successful and intelligent person watches very LITTLE T.V. ? And they for sure do not spend the day on Face book. Distraction.
Like or not - we all all being distracted and sooner or later it will hit home. In India they have tried to patent seeds - so that you can only ever get seeds if you have money! SEEDS!!
Should you plant a seed from a vegetable that is patent - you will be fined. Charged.
We here say - well just go to the grocery store- in India - they say - we will starve. That could be our future should we CONTINUE to lose control of our rights as humans.
When I was thinking of this toon I was going to have a animal say the comment on the end because the reality might not be appreciated, the next morning - before I started to draw - on FB someone posted a starving man and my mind was made up. No cute gopher.
TOO BAD if some find it harsh. It is reality and I will not be a part of ignoring it.
I pray I can be a part of changing it.
WHEN will you TURN off the T.V and TUNE into LIFE and the serious issues surrounding all of us? When you are starving?
This is starvation. If you are interested. I found it by accident just now and thanked God I drew my cartoon. http://knowmorethanyouretold.blogspot.ca/
I was blown away - over a year ago someone sent me an image that changed my life. I will warn you I NEVER got it out of my head, the same image and the same comment are at the bottom of that page. It took me a while. But I thank God for seeing that image.
I was blind but now I see and I will make a difference.
No one should suffer like that let alone innocent children. Imagine being that mother. I Am BLESSED!!! PAY ATTENTION! Please.
Oh BTH I have never seen the Kardashiens (really don't know how to spell it) from the rare posts and news bits that I have witnessed - It is a very sad sign that these people are being idolized. I feel sorry for them and us.
I drew this toon a few weeks ago but decided it was too sensitive to post. Thinking yesterday - it is too sensitive NOT to post. Like it or NOT it is the truth. I use to be confused. I am no longer confused only disgusted. Not confused because I have been educating myself on the topic of Cannabis and its legal/illegal battle.
I see Cannabis for what it is (rather how the media presents it) - they show only the negative - stoners, rednecks and ignorant - like the young mom who is seen placing her infants head on a BONG. That will be spread like wild fire- VERY WRONG - clearly she is a product of her raising and knows no better - Pay attention parents! Cannabis is a HUGE distraction I believe. All this over a plant that has never killed anyone - Something smells skunky around here...
People need to know and realize the simple insanity of it all.
Yes we do have guns in Canada - but not legal like our friends in the U.S.
I had company this past year who informed me - it is not uncommon for people in the theatre, mall, grocery store all to have guns in the U.S.A. I understand the right to protect yourself and your home. It is legal to purchase a gun and all the fixins that go with it - but does no one question ever?? There are far too many gun related deaths in the U.S.A - the worst - Children that come across a parents gun. Who is to blame? The television? Society? As for drinking , how many people go to a bar after work for a few and then get behind the wheel and drive- You don't need me to tell you - TOO F*&^%$# MANY! Sadly many walk away with a slap on the hand. Both legal.
YET - Here I am and a few other parents and seriously ill people who can't GROW a PLANT to ease their own child's pain.
IT MAKES NO SENSE what so ever! It is a crime and a slap in the face compared to the other serious, deadly issues that face us all daily.
We are Victims in the war/distraction on drugs. Call it what it is.
The price we pay is not always revealed till much later. WHY!?
Steroids are so dangerous - for the sake of a muscular appearance? How about just a normal muscular body brought about from exercise and eating healthy. I personally do NOT 'go' for the body builders that are so big they look deformed. I'm quite visually satisfied with a natural toned body.
I believe it is true - if steroids are not legal then why should it be legal to modify your body in photos - to be marketed to the general public? IT is a lie.
Women especially are lied to constantly!
Young girls learn that often the hard way they will never reach the 'image' portrayed -because that image is false! Pimples are removed, teeth are straightened and curves are cleaned for a skinnier shape! Boobs enhanced, skin tones changed, pounds removed and even hair removed and added!!! It should be illegal - It is misleading and very harmful for the minds of those that believe it is the reality we live in.
No one is perfect. It is time we embraced our pimples, wrinkles, sags and split ends and shades of people! LOVE sees no imperfections.
Below are photos of famous people WITHOUT touch ups and make up. Have a peek - some of these people with out he makeup and clothing would not get a second glance. It is time to see each other as we all - all beautiful - ON the inside - I hope!
REALITY. If you have a daughter especially share.. also please share the steroid information! BEFORE they figure out the REAL long term cost.
