From spring 2017, the German government will pay for sick people to access cannabis. Germany is the powerhouse of European politics. So a big JA JA JA from them is the beginning of the end of the nonsense that was cannabis prohibition. Big money blocked the plant, and years of amazing activist work has helped bring pot back to the people.
Health Minister Hermann Groehe said; “Our aim is that seriously ill people are treated in the best possible way.” First the very sick, then the sick and then those who don’t want to get sick will be legally allowed cannabis. The German government will grow cannabis themselves at a secure location. They will join a growing number of European countries that have a medical cannabis program.
Now it is your turn, do you support your local cannabis club? Are you a member of a patients association? Cannabis is going main stream and there are a million uses for the plant. Together with hemp, they provide a natural alternative to our current toxic options. Germany’s yes on cannabis is vital, so is the support we show to activists trying to nail down the end of prohibition all over Europe.
Cannabis is medicine. It is now undeniable. The video is about medical doctors with experience of cannabis treatment. Do we really have governments that want to play games with the populations health?
The World Health Organization Constitution(1946) states that : “the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being…”.
They define health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not just the absence of disease or infirmity
Time to claim back that right folks.
The UN has been talking about drugs at their ungass meeting in New York this week. The previous meeting talked about a drug free world. This time however, after the full devastation of the war on drugs has been felt, the UN body has changed. The focus is moving from punishment to a health care approach. There are now more drugs, more readily available than ever before. Simply jailing drug users is not helping. A drug addict is the consequences of a bad environment, bad choices and an availability of drugs. To change this situation, you can’t just focus on one part of the problem. We need a tilt away from our crooked friend, Richard Nixon’s policies of racism and move in a more responsible, compassionate direction.
For cannabis, there has been an interesting positive result. Medical cannabis has been recognized by the majority of participants. This means more acceptance of the plant being used as an alternative to current pharmaceutical options. The language is still unclear, but medical cannabis is moving forward. When we understand that all cannabis use is medicinally beneficial, it finally opens the door for cannabis.
It is now up to the general public. If we organize into cannabis clubs and show that we are both engaged and trustworthy, the plant will be adopted much quicker. Join or create a cannabis club. Get serious about becoming a professional medical cannabis grower but most of all, get active. The grey area surrounding cannabis has just increased in size. It is up to us to fill it with medical cannabis community cooperation.
A baby washes up on the shore,
Police come crashing through medical cannabis’ open door.
Our politicians lie, cheat and steals,
Exclusively funded by heartless men of corporate deals.
The idea of caring is quickly gone,
In its place, we’ll kill your Muslim son.
Blood letting, pain and too much sorrow,
Stick it on the kids bill for tomorrow.
The world is sick and on decline,
Until you stand up and say the responsibility is mine.
We have the power to change these crimes,
By joining together towards more compassionate times.
Praguepot is trying to point out the problem,
We need you to rise up and fucking help us out.
If you are a pot smoker in the northern English counties of Durham and Darlington then get ready. Crime commissioner Ron Hogg has announced a new deal with cannabis users. Police are no longer searching for small scale grow operations or possessions. Unless there is a complaint or growers are being too stupid for their own good, then the cops will leave them alone.
Isn’t that nice? Look how benevolent our overlords are being. They are now allowing us to do something we were determined to do anyway. This is classic politics. We have leaders that are pretending to lead society. All of a sudden they are now in favor of cannabis. Yesterday the plant was evil, tomorrow it will be taxed. The people in power are busy looking like they are in control. In reality, they don’t know what is happening. They are used to seeing cannabis consumers as dirty little hippies. Science now proves that hippies were making a healthy choice with cannabis. Police and their gin soaked christmas party mayhem are the real offense to society. You don’t have gangs of pot users roaming the streets looking to fight any other animals they encounter.
As is always the case, our Northern English crime fighters are only going half way with their new liberal attitude to the completely safe and healthy plant. If they catch you with some pot, you can enroll in a program to make you realize the errors of your lifestyle choice. Yes, instead of jail, you get to listen to an over weight, middle aged moron tell you how you have made bad life choices. Alcohol is a danger to society, cannabis is not. Not only can cannabis cure some cancers and other serious illnesses but it is a perfectly healthy alternative to alcohol. Eventually, even those slow minded folks in the police will have to admit that cannabis is a positive addition to society. Until then we must leave them with the illusion that their “crime fighting” work against non violent, peaceful cannabis consumers is serving the public.
Bremen’s new major is also the first German minister to actively call for cannabis legalization. Carsten Sieling says his budget can’t afford the high cost of the war on drugs. If you take cannabis out of policing, you cut costs, decriminalize a large minority of society, weaken criminal enterprises and free up the courts system. Health goes up and social tension goes down. We now have the Colorado example to go alongside Holland and Portugal. Legal pot is good for employment, health and policing.
An adult European should have the right to choose pot or alcohol and a sick one should always have access to the best medicine. At a medical marijuana conference earlier this year in Prague, we listened to scientists and doctors tell us, cannabis can replace many of the toxic pills that medicine prescribes today. We tried prohibition and it has failed. We now need a lot more honesty. Cannabis has always been a part of European society, and it will be a major part of the fight back against global warming. The toxic waste that is killing our planet can be largely replaced by cannabis. Europe is slowly waking up to cannabis, once it is realized that a new 100 billion euro industry is forming the real fun will start!!
