There is hint in the air -to be fair- the government or those in it, wish to treat Cannabis *which will eventually become legal in Canada much like the L.C.B.O.
* L.C.B.O. For those that are not aware - In Canada- that is where we go but our booze.
Alcohol, You name it - it is there! every kind of GIN, Whiskey, Tequila 'T-killya', Rye & wine- of every kind from every corner! Now they want to sell Cannabis too.
For one reason $$$ and to every patient who truly uses cannabis for what they NEED it for- it's a slap in the face. A slap I feel fresh every time I pick up the paper, moms (dads) who fight still for very sick children - who Cannabis has PROVEN to help - you just kicked them in the gut.
The articles alone - I am so sick of the lack of respect - for anyone really - wording that makes me wonder what happened to 'professional journalism', which I have looked up to all my life (and wished I could be capable of- without grammar errors ;)) I do understand it tho.. its all to do just that. Piss us off. Hopefully it gets people thinking which, I do like this particular journalist for.
Let me tell you FIRST hand: We would have been LOST without the help of 'compassion clubs'. That is who I am for! Compassion Clubs.
When you find a club that is professional and cares- they take the initial time to explain,
teach- take one through the process, even shows one hoe to vaporize for example- and they do- wow! Stress can be lifted by those that KNOW best. Surrounded by it - made a profession from it. My friend Neeve has been in the Cannabis industry in Toronto long before any of this was even a spark. Yes, I trust his opinion on what strain he thinks works best for what. Adam runs a club in Montreal that makes some od the best baked goods I've ever had. Yes, I trust his opinion before I trust the opinion of anyone at the L.C.B.O.
YOU must find a club 'you feel good' about. You will be the ones dealing with them every time you need your medicine.
God did put us on the right path back then! We were blessed to have people who cared about this journey, about Storm and our family.
My Gosh! You have no idea. I am forever grateful to them. Gabe, who I've not spoke with for years still holds a special place in my heart for the time he took and the degree that he helped us. Many are still friends today.
Doctors can't recommend a strain - they are NOT the cannabis exerts, they are 'health' experts.
For Journalists or anyone else to ASSume, compassion clubs are run by people who do not know what they are doing- that could be said for any business.
Find one that is working and frequent them. Let them prove themselves.
Below are three I know of, but I suggest you Google 'compassion club' - in your own area, home town. You might get closest city. Or ask people - it is more common then you realize. There are many cannabis friendly communities online.
I do not recommend buying from people online you do not know.
I do not recommend anyone online, I do not recommend any LP... yet.
CALM is the club we first went to in Toronto - what seems like a very long time ago, we have not been in years, again I stress - find one that suits you and your 'vibe' YOU must 'feel' comfortable.
Sante Cannabis Is in Montreal. I had delt with them over the years - they had incredible baked goods, IMO. ;)
The Medical Cannabis Dispensary_ is run by a woman I have come to know and think she is very helpful. They are in B.C.
The above are - If asked - I point in the direction, it's you own path.
Phhhhhbt! If you think the drug stores are any different - they want the same thing the L.C.B.O. does - don't fool yourself $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
IF they do will they hand out free samples like they do at the L.C,B.O.?
More on that soon...
I read a comment on FB Mandy McKnight made a while back and it stuck with me.. I'm not sure of Her exact words but it was something along the lines, IF Health Canada could not get it right - in HOW LONG??? -What makes them think the L.C.B.O. will be any different?
Compassion clubs started for a reason.
Next post... back to something less stressful. Holding hands.
