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 = $$$$$$$
To read the US government has taken out all kinds of patents on Cannabis - something they have claimed for years has no medicinal value, they have made millions suffer for it. LIES. Google Patent of Cannabis or just the number (for just one of the many patents now taken out BY the American Government on Cannabis. ONE NOW for the treatment of CANCER!! Using Cannabis : http://www.google.com/patents/US20130059018
I am angry as a Canadian, we have and continue to suffer because of their lies also, as does the rest of the world. No wonder people are upset.
BUT WHY?? I keep asking myself, WHY is it still happening??
Because WE LET IT! We are letting lives be ruined and people suffer over a plant.
IT is not the Plant. It is the PEOPLE.
People who have problems with addiction.
People who do not understand the concept of ‘moderation’.
People who are hurt, lonely abused and use drugs as an escape.
(Much like the Rats at rat park! Mentioned in the book)
People who want power and money and use lies to get it.
People. People. People. WE are the problem NEVER the plants.
Clearly PROHIBITION DOES not work.
Educate the PEOPLE. ONE LOVE. We need to help each other and stand up for what we believe in. We are not criminals. Just people.
As expected all thought out the book, what has been the biggest problem all thought out history and still is today?
ALCOHOL. < But that $$ 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?
