Germany says yes to medical cannabis

 

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 shows us how government/UN works

UN cannabis

A couple of days ago Richard Branson released an internal UN drugs policy document. In it, the leading global drugs experts called for an immediate end to the war on drugs. It is clear to these experts that the war on drugs is much more damaging than the drugs themselves. Now lets give ourselves a bit of a reality check. Prescription drugs kill more people than all the deaths by illegal drugs. We only care about cannabis here at Praguepot because unlike the nasty, dangerous drugs, cannabis is processed by growing it, then drying it, then (if you are smart) vaporizing or eating it. No lab required. Just a small, clean, well ventilated spot and hey presto, you have a ready made medicine that can effectively treat up to half of life’s illnesses.

We have seen scientific study after scientific study proving how healthy cannabis is but we are still caught in no mans land. It is clear that the pharmaceutical industry is taking the financial consequences of legal cannabis very seriously. America is the richest nation on Earth. The biggest industry in America is drugs. Imagine that, the country with the greatest and most frequently used army on the planet, also happens to be protecting the commercial interests of the biggest legal drug dealers. Pharmaceutical companies have a strangle hold on governments around the world. Anyone following the secretive international trade deals (TPP etc) will know that big legal drug dealers will now have unrestricted access to the worlds population. 

So if you are a huge drug dealer, everyone, including the UN will celebrate your success. If however, you are a sick granny growing some pot to help fight diseases common in old age, fuck you, you are a criminal and we are going to try and ruin your life. Never mind that no one has ever died from cannabis and it has cured an army of people far larger than our American friend’s army, the plant is illegal. With side effects like, happiness, giggles, good appetite and a great nights sleep you might need to take a few breaths and let that sink in. Cannabis is healthy for you, the UN knows this and it knows that the war on drugs is very damaging for society but still we are pretending that the laws regarding cannabis are legitimate. When Richard Branson did the decent thing and exposed clearly what the UN is thinking, they denied and blocked Richards efforts. The war on drugs has increased human suffering. The UN and our governments have sat and watched this suffering while taking money personally from large  legal drug dealers. GlaxoSmithKleine is a huge drug dealer. They have so much money and virtually no authority over them. They have knowingly killed people with their drugs and they don’t care about anything other than the next quarters profits.

So what can we do? Faced with this kind of opposition, it is easy to think about giving up. Each of us are the end result of millions of years of evolution and finally here we are, stuck between a monster drug dealer and a cold hearted, warped government killer. Do you think we have been crafted by nature only to give up at this moment? The psychos in our society have captured government. There is a long history of the worst human behavior ending up at the top. I guess it is natural, good people are more gentle and are easily bullied by vicious people. The only problem for those vicious people is, the gentle people are capable of being strong and forceful when they have finally had enough. Reading your history books you will see we have revolutions as a species. We get so fed up that eventually we all organize and start hanging the psychopaths. I think we are approaching one of those moments. We don’t need to hang anyone, but we must all stop cooperating with the system until we have real justice and a rational approach to society.

Cannabis is an anti cancer agent. It kills cancer cells while leaving healthy cells undamaged. It does many other beneficial things and even though your government says it is naughty, you should know how to grow cannabis and be organizing yourselves into groups. We have a cannabis church you can join, there are many activist groups packed with cool people who care but are now getting well past pissed off and we have you. You are the most important part of this drama. We need you to understand that it is us against them. If we don’t do something our grandchildren will be legal drug dealer’s slaves. You can be the difference.

Video of UK parliament cannabis debate

Here is the video of the UK parliament’s debate on cannabis after 220,000 citizens signed an online petition. Now that more facts and figures on cannabis are known to government, they can’t pretend that they don’t know about the medicinal properties of the plant. Hopefully this will pave the way for a lawsuit. We need cannabis in society because millions of people are dying from pollution and cancer each year. Cannabis can stop this rot, if the people will unite.

It is illegal to prevent cancer with cannabis?

cannabis cancer

Right you lot, listen up. We live in a terribly warped world. Me writing and you reading makes up two people right? Now the latest science on cancer says that one of the two of us will get cancer within our lifetime. Eating healthy, exercising regularly and finding a positive way to deal with life’s stresses all help but we live in an incredibly polluted world so that alone will not work. All those wifi waves and background radiation are bombarding our body’s cells. Cancer is a damaged cell that keeps growing and dividing. Normally our cells will commit suicide if it thinks it is damaged (apoptosis), but cancer overrides this safety valve. When cannabis  enters your system, it regulates your cell functions. Cancer cells are instructed by cannabis molecules to do as they normally should, and kill themselves. There is nothing in medicine that comes close to this level of effectiveness. Today’s solution to cancer is to cut, burn or poison the cancer out. This treatment hurts the healthy cells around the cancerous ones. American president Nixon knew that cannabis kills cancer since 1974 but decided to keep that piece of information to himself. It is not a conspiracy theory, it is a documented fact that the American government intentionally hid this valuable scientific breakthrough. Whether it was for cynical or incompetent reasons, the end result is the same, people have been needlessly suffering while a cure for their disease was available.

Cancer is a part of the natural world. It just so happens that cannabis can be a normal, natural antidote. This morning I had a pot cookie for breakfast which means my system has an extra shield from cancer. After eating the cookie I did not turn into a menace, but I did happily get on with my day. I have close family members that have cancer and after you spend time in a cancer treatment waiting room you know one thing, getting cancer is  bad. We set up this website to spread cannabis science and news. The last couple of years have seen huge advancements for cannabis. Governments have no credible scientific bases to keep the plant illegal but because of their irrational position they have made criminals out of normal, law abiding citizens.

Praguepot advises people to break the law on cannabis. Any system of governance that makes healthy things illegal is not a legitimate government. We encourage you to grow your own cannabis and organize yourselves into locally based groups. The threat of cancer is so serious that going to jail is an acceptable risk to keep yourself healthy.  Our governments think toxic pharmaceutical medicine is the only legal treatment but, at least for me, I will decide how to safeguard my own health. Our governments get the same information as we do. To keep cannabis illegal, it looks like they are intentionally trying to damage the public’s health. Maybe a class action lawsuit with crowd funding is an appropriate response. Any lawyers out there looking to make a name for themselves should get in touch. Below is a list of great locally based European groups you can contact and join. Our cannabis community is strong, smart and determined. Come join us as we push back against the tide of ignorance and greed that dominates our “civilized” world.

Uk government’s ignorant approach to cannabis

UK cannabis

A petition to legalize the growing and consumption of cannabis has topped 200,000 signatures in the UK. The Conservatives, lead by David Cameron has decided to pretend that all the new science we now have on the plant, didn’t happen. The same old tired arguments are rolled out. Cannabis is vicious, cannabis is evil, cannabis will make your brain fry itself!

The problem with this old tactic is, we clearly know that cannabis is healthy for you. The US government even finally admitted that cannabis kills cancer cells. One in every two people will get cancer so there are billions of lives at stake. Cameron is a politician bought and paid for by pharmaceutical companies. Big pharma will have a huge portion of their business replaced by cannabis when people stop pumping toxic pills into their bodies and instead choose home grown natural pot. The scare tactics stopped working when the internet spread actual science to the public. We are now just as informed as governments. Colorado has not seen society collapse after it legalized cannabis 20 months ago. Crime went down, health has gone up and they now have more taxes to put into education. Look at more and more American states scramble to adopt cannabis.

The UK government wants you to think they know best. However, when their former top scientist, professor Nutt came out and told them, and then the public, that alcohol and tobacco are far more dangerous to society than cannabis, they fired him. An elected government put their ideology and financial backer’s interests ahead of what is best for the people. We should never get used to this dirty way of doing business. They have acted treasonously. When a government doesn’t follow scientific evidence, you have to wonder, who are they listening to?

The UK has never had a moment like this before. We have evidence from America and Holland  that legalization does no harm to society, we have scientists and doctors backing up claims that cannabis is healthy for you and we have a public that is starting to unite around the idea that cannabis is healthy for you. We need more people to get involved. Join your local cannabis club, join Clear, Norml or Encod. All these groups are a vital component of change. The government hope that we will get tired of campaigning for cannabis legalization.  When you see first hand the help cannabis gives to sick and injured people, looking away is not an option.

We have mighty marijuana momentum, so lets make sure our politicians can’t ignore this subject. Stay united and focused on ending the cruelty of cannabis prohibition.

Israel will shut anti-drug department

Israel cannabis

Israel is a world leader when it comes to cannabis. In a further sign of the country’s intentions, it will now shut down the government anti-drug department. Gilad Erdan, the Minister for public security said that closing the anti-drug department will do two things; save tax payers money and finally end the war on cannabis. The anti-drugs department has been in the news recently when its general director, Yair Geller was arrested for corruption. Closing down the department means Israel’s government can focus on a scientific based approach to pot. This is another leap forward for cannabis. We can only hope that other countries can take up this example.

The cannabis health debate is over

Raphael Mechoulam cannabis Israel

After spending a few days at this years medical marijuana conference in the Czech Republic, it was clear that science has finally proven the health benefits of the plant. Today we see American and European governments struggle to reform their outdated laws and practices. Caging people for using cannabis, is itself a crime. No matter what the government believes, you cannot under natural law make something that promotes health, illegal. That is why praguepot was established. We want to promote the responsible growth and use of the plant. The video below tells the beautiful story of Raphael Mechoulam

Without his science, we would still have to rely on the prohibitionists lies and propaganda. He is a hero to the movement and a credit to his country’s scientific tradition.
