Mighty marijuana momentum rolls over America

american cannabis

It is hard to believe what has happened in America. They are the crazy prohibitionists that have finally seen the light. You have to remember that America has been the main protagonist in this international war on cannabis. They have spent billions of tax payers dollars fighting against the spread of pot use. They have failed miserably at this task and have criminalized a vast army of otherwise law-abiding citizens. If you are a puritanical, white Christian in America, it will be with horror that you realize that Colorado has not imploded after the legalization of cannabis. Worse from a prohibitionist’s point of view is the 25% reduction in medical pain killer overdose deaths in states that allow medical marijuana. The drop in crime and  increase in taxes all lead a sensible person to conclude, that cannabis is good for society.

Cannabis has support from both sides of the American political carnival. Each of the candidates for next years Imperial Emperor elections will have to state their position on cannabis. So far, politicians have tried to laugh off the cannabis question. They say it is not something they are proud of and isn’t something they do now. Obama, to be fair, has been the most honest about pot. He sees it as a vice like tobacco and is also afraid of the damage a large, money hungry corporation might do within the pot industry. It is cool that he has this opinion, he seems to be the only one that has developed his views on marijuana,  but that doesn’t really help the legion of poor, black men sitting in jail for cannabis crimes.

Besides the hypocrisy from the prohibitionists, the politicians are missing one very important point. Cannabis is an amazing medicine for older people. It helps with painful inflammation (arthritis), helps regulate your heath system and even regrows brain cells. They are robbing older people of their health. Pot use reduces the risk of diabetes. Those are good odds in a country that has a very serious diabetes problem.

There are hardened, grizzled cannabis activists that have dedicated their lives to legalizing pot. Here at praguepot we love those people. They have given so much to make a real difference in the world. But it wasn’t until the internet came along that their voice and information finally went main stream. Look at what has happened. Within a ten year period, cannabis has gone from a Nancy Reagan nightmare into a normal, legal commodity. The power of the people has very clearly been expressed.  With all the prior, hidden research on cannabis being exposed, the prohibitionist bullyboys have been left looking like fools. Cannabis never was a threat. The real threat has always come from out of control concentrations of power. The only antidote for this has been an engaged, active public. The cannabis community has done its job in America. There is so much work left to be done to help heal the planet and society, we might finally be on the right path. Jai Kali Ma.

Merry cannabis everyone

Christmas cannabis

It has been a big year for cannabis. Getting it legal in Colorado was huge. No longer will American stoners have to go to socialist, bad teeth, backward Europe ha ha. A new Amsterdam to replace the once trail blazing city. This year has seen science research bubbling out of the internet extolling the benefits of pot. Those powerful cannabinoids complement psychoactive THC to realign our nervous and cell systems to promote health. On the political front, even a pot loving president has to go slow. Federal funding for medical marijuana raids has been cut off and society is perhaps a little happier. The prohibitionists have not run away though, they are licking their wounds and plotting a comeback. Prohibition of cannabis is good for legal drug companies. As is always the case, drug dealers don’t like other drug dealers coming in on their turf!

Christmas cannabis

Cannabis has won the argument however. It won by proving the medical benefit of the plant. It won by not having a single death attributed to pot and it won by continuing to tell the truth even though those in power didn’t want to hear it. Cannabis won. People may still be unjustly put in jail and big business will seek to enter and profit from the herb but our hippie ancestors would smile at the thought, that we stuck it to the man!

Christmas cannabis

Society, through pollution, war and poverty is killing the only known inhabitable planet. We strayed about as far from Mother Nature as it was possible to go. Hopefully now, with the new cannabis spring that has sprung, we will move back into sync with nature. You don’t need a new car or phone or whatever each year. We don’t have to be a parasite on the earth, we can possibly enrich the place instead. Cannabis legalization is at least a beginning. Share some with a friend because Bob Marley said everything is going to be all right. Merry christmas, enjoy the madness that is close proximity to family and be ever thankful for all of life’s  blessings.
