Cannabis is medicine, just ask GW Pharmaceutical

sativex medical cannabis

Clark French is a multiple sclerosis sufferer. Out of all the medication availabe today, cannabis is his best option. The UK government allows cannabis to be grown and processed by a company called GW Pharmaceutical. They put cannabis extracts into a bottle, label it Sativex and hey presto, cannabis is legal in the UK. What a beautiful little trick. Cannabis is clearly illegal to grow in the UK but when a bunch of pharmaceutical executives lobby their friends in government, Sativex is born.

Cannabis is schedule 1, which means it has no medicinal benefit, Sativex is schedule 4. GW has made something very illegal into something very useful and all for a huge profit. Until money leaves medicine, we must always be wary of anything they say. Big pharma have and will continue to sell us drugs that are dangerous to human health. Cannabis is in the process of destroying the old big pharma world. Today it is understood by the progressive element in society that pot is a powerful medicine. The older you are, the better cannabis is for your health. If you are sick, at the very least, your pain will decrease, you will sleep and eat better and you will get high. GW have scientists and doctors telling you that cannabis is good for you. UK government officials are fighting to have Sativex sold in as many countries around the world as possible. We have to tolerate this situation until our slower witted members of society figure out that cannabis is the cure to ill health rather than the cause. Up to half of pharmaceutical drugs can be replaced by cannabis. The video below highlights the problem of sick citizens being denied affordable health care. Big business can be replaced by Buy local. We don’t have to have giant corporations holding our health in their profit accounts.

So now it is your turn. Talk about the hypocrisy of legal GW cannabis and illegal everyone else’s. Join or start your own activist group and lets start taking back control over our lives. Our governments don’t know what is best for us, and they certainly have no authority over how we choose to heal ourselves.

Snoop Dogg to Sweden; fuck y’all !

Sweden cannabis Snoop

We need to talk about Sweden. It has many fine points, but tolerance to cannabis is not one of them. Just ask Snoop Dogg, he was arrested there on Saturday night and forced to give a urine sample. He was in the country for a concert but after being pulled over and arrested, he has vowed never to return. The Swedes, we presume with the best of intentions have become the most conservative country in Europe when it comes to the herb. In spite of the positive science headlines on the plant, the Swedes haven’t altered their stance. Their next door neighbor Denmark has the highest rate of citizens who have tried cannabis in Europe and their society hasn’t shown any ill-effects.

Instead of having a sensible approach to cannabis, Sweden has shown itself to be very intolerant. Worse, when it comes to Snoop Dogg, it seems they racially profiled that G and pulled his car over. After providing a urine sample(which proved negative of any drugs), they let him go. In an emotional video, Snoop told the Swedish authorities to go fuck themselves.

It isn’t just Snoop that is effected by this zero tolerance to cannabis. Younger people who want to use cannabis can’t, but they can get their hands quite easily on synthetic cannabis. Spice as it is often called is lethally dangerous for your health. Have a look at some of the youtube videos of a bad spice trip. People go from happy to deranged in about six seconds. Spice is the price society pays for Swedish superiority. I am glad the Swedish government believe only it knows best, but if a Swedish person wants to smoke cannabis either for health or social reasons, then they have a perfect right to. Cannabis is much healthier for you than alcohol. It can grow brain cells and repair damage on a cellular level. The once mighty Swedes, are showing themselves up to be a little backward.

Snoop Dogg is an acquired taste, but the science on cannabis cannot be disputed. The plant has serious medicinal value. For that reason alone, Sweden needs to change its mind on the herb. Secondly, cannabis is a natural, healthy alternative to alcohol. The rest of Europe is slowly easing into the idea of legalization. Sweden needs to follow them for the safety of young smokers and the well being of sick and older people. We are at the point of no return, let’s finally let cannabis back into European society.

Israel is leading cannabis reform for patients

Israel cannabis

Israel has been a shining example of how to deal with cannabis. From the ground breaking scientific research lead by Raphael Mechoulam to the latest news that cannabis will be widely available in all pharmacies. There has been a real problem of patients getting access to the medicinal plant so today’s announcement outlining a clear path for full introduction into Israeli patient care will bring some much needed relief. The deputy minister of health, Yakov Litxman believes cannabis must be made available to all those who medically need it.

We know that cannabis increases health in all living beings so this announcement has far reaching consequences. Up until today, only a few doctors in Israel could prescribe the herb leading to accusations of the government not doing enough for those in pain. The chair of their parliament’s Committee on Drug and Alcohol Abuse is very supportive of this, so it is believed to pass through to law without undue time wasting or complications. Good news for Israelis and an example that Europe would want to learn as quickly as possible.

Why fight for cannabis

cannabis rights

The prohibitionists have done an amazing job. Say marijuana to one of our less enlightened brothers or sisters and they immediately think of brains frying and the short step to crack whores giving hand jobs at the back of bus stations. You have to give it to them. They really, really did a great job vilifying the non toxic, health giving plant. They would have gotten away with it to, if it wasn’t for those pesky kids talking about the beneficial effects of the plant on the internet.

So why should we fight for cannabis? It is freely available anyway right? We must fight because our pot rights are important. It is the coming out issue for the next generation of politically activated young people. We have watched with horror as big business has dominated society. The government doesn’t mind pollution or systemic corruption but it does mind people using a healthy alternative to alcohol?

We must fight for our rights because if we don’t, we will wake up in a police state if we are not there already. Our phones and computers have taken us into the next phase of human evolution but they have also allowed a control obsessed government to track us to a frightening, George Orwell 1984 level. This new generation must put science at the forefront of political decisions. Cannabis is an effective, non toxic medicine which should be embraced quickly and decisively. America is in the middle of a low level civil war between the racist system and oppressed minorities. Europe is dealing with a tsunami of traumatized African refugees. Asia is trying to cope with climate change as well as an ever growing China. If we want things to change, then we will need much more straight talk. Politicians are famous for talking out of their arses, considering the lethal threats today, do we really want this type of representation? Do we want puppets, bought and paid for by big business tellings us it will be all right if we only vote for them one more time?

Cannabis is a beautiful battle between the generations. On the prohibitionist’s side, they have all the hot air and bluster but they also have the keys to the city whereas the pro pot camp has all the facts and science  but don’t have a unified voice yet. To argue against the obvious medical applications of the plant is ridiculous, even recreational users are medicating. They have lower stress levels and a much lower risk of getting diabetes. If you go into your local hospital emergency room on a Friday night, it will be the drinkers populating the room, not stoners.

If we don’t fight for this right, which right will we take a stand on? The right to privacy? GONE. The right to protest? GOING. The right to live in a safe, unpolluted world? GONE. We have tried ignoring our way out of the problem and guess what, the politicians just did what the greedy capitalists told them to do to the obvious detriment of society.

We must fight for cannabis because it can unite us as a new generation dealing with a shit storm of problems. Our current leaders thinks it is a good idea to deal with the debt crisis by creating a vast ocean of new debt. Instead of using this new made up money to help society they give it to banks and their corporate masters while leaving us to rot. They go to war against our interests, and they couldn’t care less if cannabis cures cancer. They get their big mansions and sleazy boardroom jobs anyway. It is up to us, look away if you want, but in the end we will have to deal with this problem so why not pack a peace pipe and get started!! Social media has brought us together. We wanted cannabis legalized and it will be legalized. There is no end to our collective power and unlike older generations that then use power to personally profit, we can focus on healing the planet and creating the kind of world that would make Gandhi proud.

90% of doctors don’t know about the endocannabinoid system

Little is known and taught about the endocannabinoid system. Much like our hormonal system, it plays an active, vital role in maintaining our health. Dr. Mechoulam, one of Israel’s greatest sons, discovered the system in the 1990’s. Not only do our bodies have receptor sites cued just for cannabinoids, our bodies actually produce them internally. The active ingredients in cannabis naturally complement this system which affects pain, inflammation and our immune system. It is suspected that many illnesses are caused by a deficiency in the endocannabinoid system. In the following years of research the true insanity of the war on cannabis will be known. Smoking cannabis over a 20 year period reduces the risk of diabetes by 66%. There is no medication currently on the market that can compete with this.
Basically, whether you are using cannabis for fun or as a medicine, you are receiving the health benefits in your endocannabinoid system anyway. This is great news for a health conscious society but bad news for big pharma, the law enforcement and alcohol industries. The short video below gives us a first glance at this system.

Medical marijuana in Prague

Prague medical marijuana

Organically grown cannabis can be an effective treatment for many of today’s most serious illnesses. There is a new Czech law allowing access to pot but so far there has only been a small number of people who have actually been prescribed the natural remedy. The problem is Czech doctors are not educated about the benefits of the plant. In America, cannabis is routinely used to treat the following health issues :
Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury/Disease, Cancer, HIV/AIDS, Severe Arthritis, Epilepsy, ADD/ADHD, Eating Disorders, Arthritis, Auto Accident, Alzheimer’s Disease, Brain Injury, Chronic Pain, Chronic Nausea, Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Kidney Failure/Dialysis, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Migraines, Muscular Dystrophy, Muscle Spasms, Parkinson’s Disease, Sleep Disorders, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Hepatitis C, Gastrointestinal Disorders, Back & Neck Problems, Depression, Sexual Dysfunction.

Every day in Prague there are people putting toxic prescription drugs in their body to treat these health problems. While fighting one illness the pills cause other negative health side effects. We can avoid this by using cannabis. Czech doctors with no knowledge of cannabis however, are simply not going to prescribe it. So for the many sick patients out there, the underground cannabis market is the only pharmacy they can turn to. As a society we must value both those actually suffering and science. Once it was known that marijuana helps sick people it should have been embraced. America is moving towards fully accepting the medical benefits of the plant, Prague is letting its people suffer.

Lazy, self interest and ignorance is this city’s current strategy. We can do better and there are people out there passionate about bringing cannabis to the center of medical care. We have been sold a lie that medicine can only come in a pharmaceutical pill bottle. It is a new day in a new year and we are at last starting to head in the right direction. Last year’s American pot headlines were a joy to watch. This year we need to confront our European family into action. This will hopefully be the year of the European cannabis social clubs. For the sake of patients who need medical marijuana, these clubs can’t come out into the open quickly enough.
