I'm sure they had aches and pains and KNOW they weren't pulling out the Oxycontin to assist with it. Cannabis was first documented as making an appearance in China.. before Christ. Research it if you are curious - it's quite interesting! No deaths.
I read earlier today Israel has developed the first metered dose inhaler. NOW, I believe this is good because, it will make cannabis easily available for children I hope & for those that still have this brain washed fear of cannabis - they will try it- and therefore be using a less harmful- better effective medicine. More Adults and children will be introduced to it. More removed from the proven deadly other medications. That being said- a 'controlled does' for someone who has chronic pain, why? Will they overdose if they feel too good? I don't believe so. If it is a suspected 'drug abuser' (I'm not sure what I think about this term any longer) - just like any other - it will have to be addressed. WE CAN't keep putting all 'us apples' in the same bunch! Let's address drug addiction on a new level while we are at it and HELP those who struggle most.
Here is one of the best informed, spirited and educated groups doing just that: https://www.facebook.com/CSSDP/ Students for Sensible Drug Policy.
With this new research will come a new attitude and legalization across Canada at least, then the USA might follow and the new industry will explode!
Who will go to the lengths of growing let alone be able to afford it with Hydro becoming what it is? Did they anticipate the legalization of cannabis .. Hmmmmmm, I wonder. lol Will everyone quit their job and start to grow? Hardly, most people by then will go to the new 'Cannabis friendly shop & for many reasons! Affordability, ease, choice, safety, variety, experience, knowledge, accessories & MORE & they will go to whom ever is doing it best. Simple. It is a big market that will be able to fill every 'niche'!
Now, how about we fucking focus on world hunger, human trafficking, child abuse, poverty, racism, online abuse, alcohol abuse, birth control, life education skills, global warming, animal abuse, animal consumption, obesity, suicide rates with veterans, elderly abuse, elderly over medication, texting & dying...
Frig, I'm sure everyone can insert their own much more serious issue at hand.
On a positive note, I feel better after a thoughtful evening and long sleep. Thanks to a Medicated turmeric tea before bed with honey, cinnamon and hemp/almond milk & medicated coconut oil. I think the bluejays were up before me today!
Up and painting Mona- already tomorrow bud on my mind - now it's into painting that canvas of mine, I got going on. Have a wonderful day.
Get at it or it will get to you!
