Cannabis plays a major role in stopping cancerous tumor growth. It treats chronic pain, Crohn’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, headaches, period pain, relieves nausea, helps fight diabetes. . .
The list can go on and on. When the dust settles on this ridiculous pot prohibition nonsense, we will see cannabis at the very center of natural healing. We needed pharmaceutical companies but their need for ever increasing profits has led to their corruption. A little light reading from Steven Brill’s article in the Huffington post reveals the deep rot within the industry. It seems that publishers of scientific journals have warped into the propaganda arm of the pharmaceutical industry. Big pharma make a drug and do some research. This research is then “peer-reviewed” by the same publishers that take money directly from big pharma. Real life in a capitalist system means you do what you are told by the person that pays you. Big pharma pays, so we get published data saying exactly whatever the sales team for that drug wants. There are clear cases of big pharma knowing that drugs are dangerous for peoples health but are sold to the doctors and public as safe. This is criminal behavior, but it is also normal big business behavior.
So we know that cannabis is a powerful medicine and now we understand that big pharma controls not only the politicians and doctors, but also the scientific journals. Based on this, it is clear why cannabis has not been embraced as a life saving natural gift from Mother Nature. Marijuana can replace half of the pharmaceutical products on the market today. We can fairly easily grow cannabis, so what is a cut throat business man to do? Sit back and let the natural healing power of pot ruin their business or fight to crush the knowledge that cannabis is healthy for you using the same media channels they use to flog their prescription drugs. Now factor in that the pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest and most powerful industries on the planet. They own the political system, they own the newspapers, they own the police so basically they own public opinion.
Recently a news story broke that cannabis causes diabetes. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Cannabis actually regulates your body’s sensitivity to sugar and can drastically reduce your chances of getting diabetes. The headline still screamed that cannabis causes diabetes. This is just the latest in a long line of bullshit claims from big pharma. Pot is healthy for you. All independent research on cannabis turns up positive data on cannabis’ effect on our health.
Our planet is being poisoned. One in every two people will get cancer in their life so the cancer fighting properties of marijuana has never been more important to global health. The problem is there is huge resistance to this new information. Big pharma cannot allow cannabis to replace their toxic drugs. It is the death of their mega industry if they do. Plush board rooms, private jets and massive pay bonuses corrupt. Lobby money to anti-pot politicians, dishonest scientific data and constant negative news stories all total our present day situation. The general public still thinks that cannabis is dangerous and unhealthy. This period of history will be known as the corporate dark ages. Profit has been placed in front of public protection. You cannot trust mainstream media because it is the voice of big business. Thankfully we now have the internet. We can communicate with like-minded individuals, we can organize and share information. It is now our turn to communicate with society. It is up to YOU to help change our culture. We have a lot of work to do but lets start with ending the needless suffering of sick people. Lets get cannabis legalized so the most powerful, non toxic medication can be available practically for free for everyone. There are amazing activist groups out there. Join them or if there isn’t one close to you, set one up. It is the humble, locally based community activist groups that will change the world. Get busy, be local and never stop fighting for what is right !!!
In a capitalist society, there is no value on something until there is a monetary value prescribed. Unlike other intoxicants, cannabis is a consciousness expanding substance. I hope small, organic growers don’t get pushed out of the industry but once pot gets into main stream society there will be social change. The snarling consumerist society is killing the planet. Mother Nature is an old and wise gal, so it isn’t a coincidence that cannabis is coming into the light now just as the decay of our modern world is beginning to show. A decade from now we will see the results of cannabis in society.
I am predicting a healthier society. Both spiritually and physically better off. Cannabis comes from nature and reconnects us to our planet. The world is ripe for change. This system only works for a handful of people. We only put up with greedy capitalism because we are too busy just trying to survive. The old white male that dominates society says pot makes you lazy. Working three jobs without health insurance is not a productive use of your life. Capitalism values profit, cannabis values the human being beneath.
Big money is developing strategies and distribution channels for their new commodity but they don’t realize that pot is going to change the world. The frequency that our current capitalist society wants us on, keeps us obeying authority. This authority is controlled by massive corporations that only care about profit. Breaking people down into consumer units is big business’s fantasy land. Like a hamster on his wheel we run in virtual circles accumulating a home, it’s contents and a car or two. To pay for this we enslave our one and only life by doing whatever work pays the most.
Cannabis illuminates the folly of this kind of life. We are not born into this world to service the debt that society places around our necks, we were born to express our true nature. Dreamers and philosophers have just as important a role to play as scientists and accountants. Our world must move past capitalism, we are not units, we are from nature and through pot legalization a growing number of people will see capitalism as a parasite. So go ahead greedy hedge fund money managers, go dive and make a pig of yourself in this new green herbal industry. The joke is on you, once your fat little face has been filled, the new industry you came to exploit will change the game. Wall Street says greed is good, but the truth is, it is a sin. A billion dollars is a made up concept that has tricked us into working long hours away from our loved ones. We have one duty here on earth, to fully express who we are, and contrary to capitalist ideology, you can’t fully express yourself in a grey little cubicle. Jai Kali Ma
Our health is positively affected by consuming cannabis! Who said life was all bad??
The high we get from pot is a by-product of when cannabis is in your nervous system repairing normal damage that we all have. Cannabis is made up of cannabinoids and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Both have different roles to play within our nervous system but together they have been shown to cure severe forms of epilepsy and Crohn’s disease. Ask a Crohn’s Disease sufferer if they think pot should be made available after it has helped them and then match that up to what our governments are saying. Cannabis is a medicine. It is time for big pharmaceutical companies to take the share price hit that is coming to them. Their drugs can be replaced by something you can grow yourself. Billions of dollars will be lost when their toxic medicine will be replaced by a non toxic, healthy, Mother Nature solution to cancer and other diseases.
The video Spells out the health benefits of cannabis. Once it was known that cannabis is a medicine, why wasn’t it immediately made available to sick people? The answer lies in the type of societies we live in. We have governments influenced by massive corporations that only want society run in a way that profits them. It has clearly been shown that big pharmaceutical companies tried to suppress positive science on cannabis and financially backed politicians that sought to continue the prohibition of cannabis. They have billions in profits at stake, the heads of these companies are cut throat capitalists who only care about profits. This small group of people and their shareholders have kept cannabis out of the reaches of sick patients.
Spain (population 60 million) is the best country in Europe in terms of cannabis research. There are 500 million people in Europe, 300 million in America, and a few hundred million from other progressive minded nations. Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells during a Spanish scientific experiment. Imagine what the results of this discovery will be when it is not just Spain doing all the work, but the smartest minds from everywhere. Will we see the end of cancer? Today one in three people will have some form of cancer in their life. We need more cannabis research. We need the end of cannabis prohibition and we also need to start running our societies with people and not profits in mind.
Bob Marley was a lot of things to a lot of people, but a corporate stooge, he was not. It has just been announced that Bob Marley’s estate will use his image and name to promote a global marijuana brand. Ever since the American government began to ease prohibition, business has tried to figure out how to capitalize. So with dollars in their heart and a cynical marketing move they are trying to combine the love of greed with the loving life example that was Bob Marley.
This is what big business wants. The Mac Bob Bud. Sir, do you want extra large dabs with that order? Happy heal meals for 10 dollars and stores being opened up all over the world. America, the most rabid cannabis prohibitionist will now turn into a militant exporter of the plant! Go figure. I don’t know what Bob would think of his name being used by a corporate investment fund but it, at the very least goes against his ideals of power to the people.
The ending of prohibition can go one of two ways. The most likely direction involves huge corporate money being pumped into cannabis production and distribution. Vast chains of McDonald like businesses giving the public what they want. Or we could have a home growing revolution where people take responsibility for their own medicine supply. I am rooting for the second option. Today big pharmaceutical companies rule our health. We must tolerate their obscene profits and swallow their toxic medicine. Scientific research on cannabis shows the plant is a powerful anti inflammatory agent. It fights pain in a non toxic way and increases appetite. It has been shown to fight cancer, protect the brain and regulate our nervous system. Having direct access to this medicine lessens the grip big business has over our lives.
Bob Marley is not responsible for his decedents. His family are cashing in on his name. I presume some slick Wall Street type flew to Jamaica and kept throwing money at them until finally they bit. Bob Marley’s message was about love. Using his image and stature to sell pot to the world is an amazing coup for the money men. Hopefully along the way a bit of his soul infects their greedy intentions. One love.
