UN OKs medical cannabis

 

The UN has been talking about drugs at their ungass meeting in New York this week. The previous meeting talked about a drug free world. This time however, after the full devastation of the war on drugs has been felt, the UN body has changed. The focus is moving from punishment to a health care approach. There are now more drugs, more readily available than ever before. Simply jailing drug users is not helping. A drug addict is the consequences of a bad environment, bad choices and an availability of drugs. To change this situation, you can’t just focus on one part of the problem. We need a tilt away from our crooked friend, Richard Nixon’s policies of racism and move in a more responsible, compassionate direction.

For cannabis, there has been an interesting positive result. Medical cannabis has been recognized by the majority of participants. This means more acceptance of the plant being used as an alternative to current pharmaceutical options. The language is still unclear, but medical cannabis is moving forward. When we understand that all cannabis use is medicinally beneficial, it finally opens the door for cannabis.

It is now up to the general public. If we organize into cannabis clubs and show that we are both engaged and trustworthy, the plant will be adopted much quicker. Join or create a cannabis club. Get serious about becoming a professional medical cannabis grower but most of all, get active. The grey area surrounding cannabis has just increased in size. It is up to us to fill it with medical cannabis community cooperation.

 

Germany positive on medical cannabis

The German ministry of health just released a new draft(in German) of regulations for medical cannabis. Instead of pretending cannabis is a problem, the Germans are preposing cannabis be treated for what it is, an amazing new medical discovery. The draft regulations would place cannabis in the same category as other prescription medications.

Great news for patients but terrible news for powerful, money hungry pharmaceutical corporations. If the regulations are adopted, it will mean that any doctor in the country will be able to prescribe medical cannabis. Most importantly, the draft proposal also says that cannabis should be covered by your insurance company.

This is huge. Germany is a big European player. Their ministry of health cannot signal any clearer. They want a sensible, rational approach. No more arresting people for making a health conscious choice. We have plenty of things to deal with in society, but responsible cannabis use is not one of them. Medical cannabis is coming so get ready for the great societal detox !!!!

 

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.

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.

Help UK cannabis, speak with your local MP

UK cannabis

After the successful online government petition to legalize the production and use of cannabis, the UK parliament has to now meet and discuss the topic on the 12th of this month. After speaking with  UK activist groups, the message going around is; anyone living in the UK should contact their own local MP and ask them if they will be at the parliament debate. The Tory government would like nothing better than a sparsely attended debate.

It will take you a few minutes but the difference could be life changing. Sick and elderly patients can really benefit from the non toxic plant. Increased sleep and appetite are the bed rock of recovery and unlike toxic pharmaceutical drugs, the only side effect of cannabis is a bliss like euphoria.

Take the time to call or email your MP because the drug war has failed. We tried putting everyone in jail and still cannabis use increased. If we remove the black market, then we can make sure that young people don’t have as ready a supply and we can also improve the quality of pot.

Be the difference, contact one of the organizations below or directly with your local MP. We live in a democracy, it is high time we started using the system instead of being used by the system!!!

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 !!!
