The story of Plauen’s cannabis social club

cannabis Germany

Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived a young, happy couple. They found each other in Plauen, Germany. This is a small (50,000 population) town in the old communist east of the country. These kinds of areas tend to have higher unemployment and social issues. Alcohol and drug abuse being a serious problem. So our happy couple have set up a cannabis social club in Plauen. The old conservative heart of Germany sees the couple’s club as a terrible example of society’s decay.

However, there is a little more to this story. You see Plauen’s cannabis club founder has a special interest in cannabis. When he was younger (he is 23 now) he had a bad motor bike accident. Unfortunately he damaged 20% of the back part of his brain, and 10% of the front. This meant that he couldn’t move around too much. If he walked somewhere, he would bump into things. As objects move towards him his brain can’t make sense of them and he hits them. His doctors put him on many different pharmaceutical drugs. These were nasty, strong chemicals and they seemed to make him worse. One of the side effects he suffered was throwing up blood all day. Worse than the side effects, he couldn’t think normally. Understanding what had happened was difficult. Luckily for him, he had a very cool, knowledgeable doctor that whispered to him one day, “try cannabis”.

When he has smoked enough cannabis, he can drive, talk and think normally. Cannabis rewires the way his mind operates. The toxic legal drugs were killing him but the illegal, safe, healthy cannabis plant saved him. Imagine being given back the power of thought. What would you do? Well, our Plauen activist here decided that he should tell the world about what happened to him and raise awareness about the healing power of the plant. The Plauen cannabis social club is a perfect example of what cannabis can do. Not only has it helped Stefan medically, but the herb has an interesting way of letting us think in a very creative way. As the local Plauen authorities cut their after school youth program budgets, the cannabis club has been dreaming up ways to fill those gaps. All money raised by this couple goes to youth projects (Check out their website for more information).

None of this information has been filtering into the minds of the local Plauen population. They were told by the television that cannabis is bad so that is that. The Plauen club is harassed and belittled even though our happy couple only have good intentions. Praguepot is helping out but we are still three hours away and there is a bit of a language barrier. At last weekend’s Prague cannafest, we tried to meet as many German activists as possible and ask them for help. The cannabis community is full of all kinds of people, but you can always notice the increased levels of compassion. The cannafest organizers gave the Plauen club a free stand. That act of kindness has helped connect our couple to the wider community. After a fun weekend they are back in Plauen looking for a suitable garden space to grow organic fruit and vegetables.

Without cannabis, the Plauen club founder would be in a very bad situation. When he came to Prague I made sure he had pot. This is a criminal act in the eyes of the law, but with a little common sense you can see that a law that forbids someone from health is an invalid law. Our governments are dead wrong on cannabis and it is time for them to grow up and deal with the fact that they are quite often completely full of shit. In Amsterdam you can buy pot from a coffee shop but the owners of that coffee shop must magically produce their pot because it is illegal for them to buy it anywhere. We have new shiny medical marijuana bills being proposed but they don’t even attempt to utilize the true value of the plant. At this years cannafest, leading cannabis scientist, Cristina Sanchez told a packed audience that cannabis is 100% healthy for humans. The plant has a positive effect on all cancers. With this ringing in your ears, lets get busy working on how to get out of this mess. Our cancer ravished society needs cannabis. We need more people talking about pot and we need more people growing it. If you can help our Plauen friends in any way the karma points are huge and so is the thank you.

We will keep you posted on what happens up in Plauen. With their limited resources they have turned a bad situation into a beautiful song. Cannabis is medicine, it brings health so it is automatically legal to grow and use no matter what the suits say.

New research, cannabis effectively treats cancer

One World Cannabis

Our scientific friends over at One World Cannabis have been very busy. They are a leading cannabis research company. I met Dr. Yehuda Baruch, director of research, earlier this year and he excitedly told me about cannabis replacing up to half of  pharmaceutical medication currently on the market. In One World Cannabis’ latest scientific trials, they tested cannabis’ ability to fight cancer. The results and amazing. Cannabis kills 60% of Multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow while leaving healthy cells unharmed.

We live in a strange world were this kind of headline gets reported on a small site like praguepot but is ignored by the main stream media. Cancer is a real threat to us. Over the next two decades, cancer cases are set to increase by 70%. Cannabis is a vitally important tool to fight this epidemic, so learning how to grow pot is a very good idea. One World Cannabis operate from Israel, which is the leading medical cannabis country in the world. Pot is already prescribed for chronic pain and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in Israel. Contrary to media reports, Israeli patients who use cannabis have not turned into zombies and very few, if any negative side effects have been observed.

It is time to cut out the bullshit. Cannabis is an amazing medicine and all governments in the western world know it. To keep pot illegal is a criminal act and should be resisted. Forget the stereotype stoner, sick people are suffering because they don’t have access to cannabis. A chronic pain sufferer can have liver failure due to pain management drugsI have personally seen someone going from shoveling 18 pills a day to using just cannabis to manage chronic pain. Pot is a natural substance that makes our bodies thrive but unless we keep pressure on our governments, big pharma will continue to poison sick people while a natural, healthy alternative goes to waste.

Big pharma is worse than you think

pharmaceutical propaganda

Pharmaceutical companies are among the largest corporations on the planet. Their power and influence is incredible. They are making up the rules as they drug a larger and larger percentage of the population. They make drugs, test them and then have them approved by their buddies in the system. Cannabis can replace most of these toxic pills but unless the internet goes down in the next 12 months, cannabis is about to destroy their evil empire. The video below is shocking. Big pharma will not voluntarily stop trying to increase their customer base. They want every man, woman and child drugged for their profit. What do you do when the crazy conspiracy theories turn out to be true?

Cannabis and cultural conditioning

cannabis propaganda

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.

cannabis propaganda

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.

cannabis propaganda

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.

cannabis propaganda

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 !!!

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.

What does the upcoming UK parliament cannabis debate mean?

UK cannabis

After a successfully organized and run online petition to legalize the production, sale and use of cannabis, the UK parliament must now debate the subject. British cannabis activists should be very proud of their efforts. Over 200,000 signatures were collected.  For establishment politicians this is a nightmare. They are under huge pressure from pharmaceutical lobbyist money to kill any cannabis debate. A chronic pain sufferer has to take a handful of toxic medication every day. Cannabis can replace all these pills and allow the patient to lead a normal, healthy life. The way our political systems have developed, politicians and business are far to close to each other. This relationship causes things like pollution and prohibition, but when people  stand together, our prostitute politicians will do as they are told.

On Monday, 12th of October we will witness a piece of political theatre. We will see a parliament debate on cannabis attended by only a few MPs and little media coverage. The establishment does nice business with pharmaceutical companies. Big pharma has evolved from a life giving industry into just another ATM for giant corporations. Selfish politicians want to give the impression that this is not an important issue. They are thinking of campaign contributions instead of looking at the science on cannabis. It is clear that cannabis is one of the most amazing natural medicines known to man.

Here is a list of 700 scientific studies that show the medical benefits of the plant.

Politicians have tried imprisoning, then laughing at this issue. That hasn’t worked so they will give ignoring the public’s demands a try.  What they don’t realize is, we will never stop pushing for medical cannabis. The establishment has portrayed cannabis users as hippie stoners but the truth is very different. Cannabis is a creative fuel as well as the best, non toxic medicine we have found. We are not lazy, we are committed. Why should we live in a world were only billionaire companies get to control medicine. Look at your history books, every greedy concentration of power and money has ended in people getting needlessly hurt and killed. Opioid pain medication kills thousands of people each year in the UK. Of all the drug overdose deaths, 82% is from prescription drugs. We do have a drug problem in Europe, but it is the legal drug dealers that are causing the most harm. Alarmingly, new statistics tell us that one in every two people will get cancer in the UK. Cannabis is a known anti cancer tumor substance. Each time you use cannabis you are lowering the risk of getting cancer. Imagine the mind that believes they have the right to prohibit you from protecting yourself against cancer!

We are firmly on the road to cannabis legalization. This is important to people who suffer in silence. UK activists are dedicating their time and energy so now lets all stand up. Together, we can change this war torn, polluted world. Below are a list of fantastic UK organizations. They are filled with friendly, dedicated activists, and they need your help.

The corruption of medicine

pharmaceutical corruption cannabis

Our technological advancement in the medical field is impressive. We can now do organ transplants and stem cell research is racing ahead. But there is one aspect of the medical industry that is absolutely criminal. Doctors are routinely given free holidays, expenses and gifts from pharmaceutical companies trying to get doctors to prescribe their products. For some bizarre reason this practice is legal. The result of this corruption is more patients taking pharmaceutical pills that they do not need. This industry has risen to become the largest industry in America and a global powerhouse. One of the main reasons cannabis has been kept illegal is because big pharma are afraid the plant will replace many of their most profitable products.

It is time that we check the power of these companies. Their immoral influence on doctors is a modern scandal. Their active participation in the prohibition of marijuana is pure evil. At the recent Prague medical marijuana conference scientists and doctors agreed that cannabis could replace up to half of all the medication currently being sold by these gigantic corporations. The size of the pharmaceutical industry, coupled with their obscene profits is a threat to society. It is time to wake up to the reality that big pharma is only a profit seeking organization. They do not care about the patient, they only concern themselves with the next financial quarter’s profits. This is too narrow a perspective on an industry that is literally a life saving one. Cannabis prohibition has illuminated all these problems. Ignoring them is folly, the only answer is to educate yourself and then get active. Our grandkids can’t afford any more inaction.
