Cannabis and terrorism

A baby washes up on the shore,

Police come crashing through medical cannabis’ open door.

Our politicians lie, cheat and steals,

Exclusively funded by heartless men of corporate deals.

The idea of caring is quickly gone,

In its place, we’ll kill your Muslim son.

Blood letting, pain and too much sorrow,

Stick it on the kids bill for tomorrow.

The world is sick and on decline,

Until you stand up and say the responsibility is mine.

We have the power to change these crimes,

By joining together towards more compassionate times.

Praguepot is trying to point out the problem,

We need you to rise up and fucking help us out.

 

 

 

 

Organically grown cannabis is healthy for you

cannabis healthy

Cannabis kills cancer cells, cannabis increases your IQ, it increases your health and decreases stress and anxiety based problems.

Ain’t that a kick in the teeth for prohibitionists! Vaporizing cannabis into your system actually creates new brain cells(neurogenesis). The only harm that befalls a cannabis consumer is when he/she has contact with representatives of prohibitionists. If you take a walk down along the Vltava river in Prague(Czech Republic), you will often see people smoking pot. Besides looking like they are enjoying themselves, there is no difference between them and their alcohol drinking counterparts, at least on the surface. In reality, alcohol is dehydrating and ever so slightly poisoning the body. Cannabis is like a boosted health supplement that also gets you intoxicated. That high feeling that you get is the physical sensation of new brain cells being born.

So the fact is, organically grown cannabis is healthy for you. Another fact is, the state is continuing to keep cannabis illegal, even though they know it is healthy for you. They are jailing and harassing anyone who dares to think for themselves. Once you understand that pot is healthy for you, and that it can help sick people, you have two choices. Pretend you don’t know anything and look away, or get involved.

We are in the middle of a very interesting period of history. Western societies believed themselves to be civilized and advanced. Yes our modern technology is amazing, but what about our human rights? We have the choice of  many different products, but we are also being actively observed by the state. Gay peoples rights are not respected and racism hasn’t been defeated. The internet is challenging this mode of thinking however. Once isolated, now the will of the majority can be understood and acted on. This means we are on the path to cannabis legalization. We will cut out racism and eventually unite around common sense and decency. These things will eventually happen but when your grandchild asks you about it, what will you say? You were one of the people that pressurized the government into acting quicker or you went along with the unthinking majority and let sick people suffer? Each of us must star in our own movie. We each can do so much by acting together. We have gone along with an old fashioned version of life for long enough. It is time to take control. Get active within your local community. Help other people to get active as well. Together we can build a beautiful tomorrow, but it requires taking action against the conservative forces in society today!

A poem to the end of cannabis prohibition

cannabis prohibition

Feet dangling from this dock, fresh ocean breeze swirling.
Waiting.
Sunrise, sunset.
Waiting for the mad dust to settle down.
The herb is healthy. No amount of wealthy campaign contributions will change that.
Broken bodies needlessly filled with toxic medication.

Politicians look down on the people.

Why?

The people don’t care to follow what is happening.

Too busy being distracted.

What a cruel laugh is being had at our children’s future.

Each of us bears responsibility for our broken society.

There are no easy options left.

Words and protests are part of the carnival.

The real perversion in society is our inaction.

So I sit on this dock, breathing in the clean air.

Getting stronger and more determined.

Provoking the unity that is so desperately needed to save the planet.

Just ask the cocksure Nazis.

In the end, truth wins.

In the end, the evilness of inaction is over come by its arch-rival, action.

Our day will come.

My cannabis journey

cannabis journey

I never had the luxury of being a full time stoner. There was always so much to be done that spending the day in a haze of haze just wasn’t an option. My cannabis journey started in a small, damp, stone cottage up in the mountains. Having never been a tobacco smoker I didn’t like joints so instead I used a pin and a small lump of hash. Though primitive, it did the trick. From this beginning, cannabis became a part of my life. Sharing pot with friends is a beautiful thing. The fact that it is illegal adds to the experience. Back then we didn’t know about cannabis and its cancer fighting properties. We didn’t know about different strains or the difference between organic and chemically grown. I just knew that I liked it. So did all my friends. Years later, as we follow our own paths there isn’t one of us that regrets our pot use. It hasn’t slowed down or perverted who we were going to become.

Instead of becoming a lawyer, a doctor, a postman or a painter, I have chosen to become a cannabis activist. At some point in life you have to stand for something. For me, with praguepot I am standing up for cannabis. The plant is a direct dialogue with nature. Like a message in a bottle, cannabis is reconnecting us with the natural world. Cannabis promotes peace and helps de-stress. It is hard to imagine why we would have a problem with someone using cannabis but then you look around and see people having problems with everything. Gay marriage, racial tensions, problems with poor people, distrust of funny religions. We are not an open minded bunch. Society is being pulled by two types of people. Those who want to keep things as they are, and those that want to change. Both have reasons for their point of views. The conservatives have done very nicely out of keeping things the same. Why would they even want to think about cannabis when they profit from alcohol and prescription drugs. Those looking for change can imagine a better tomorrow. Pushing against a system that doesn’t want to change is not as much fun as you would think. Between being ignored and harassed however, it is possible to help our world evolve.

The science that is leaking out on marijuana is exciting. I have first hand experience of the medicinal benefits of the plant. It really does help with chronic pain, and epilepsy, and cancer, and Crohn’s Disease and a long list of other ailments. As pot becomes legal in more and more American states we will witness the positive contribution pot can make. A year of legal marijuana in Colorado has resulted in zero deaths. In fact, painkiller overdoses have decreased by 25% in states that have access to medical marijuana. This is a shocking number. Add into the mix the lost revenues for serious criminals and you would have to explain very slowly again why pot remains illegal.

History will put cannabis prohibition in the same box as alcohol prohibition. It simply doesn’t work to criminalize a vast section of the community. Look at all the suffering cannabis prohibition has caused. It is by far the most damaging aspect of the plant. We need more people switching on, taking personal responsibility to help change the world into a better version of itself. It has never been more important to get active. Progress only happens with personal participation, so let’s get moving!!

A Prague pot poem

Cannabis is green.

It can help with some pretty serious illnesses.

It can be abused, misused and wasted.

Smoking pot might make you a cliché.

Using cannabis will make you seem like a reformed rapist in the eyes of the ignorant.

Not being a stoner cliché will help change the ignorant buffalo’s opinion of cannabis.

Cannabis is an amazing tonic for older people. It brings down natural inflammation and helps repair worn out old bodies.

Cannabis kills stress, which is lucky because stress kills people.

Cannabis is a gift from Mother Nature.

Cannabis might stop our species from fossil fuel driving our civilization off the cliff.

Did you see the might in the last sentence? Might? Even with cannabis and a reconnection to the natural world, we might be goosed anyway.

Cannabis is to human consciousness, as lobbyists are to the political system. Cannabis is a message from Mother Nature. Dude, chill and stop trying to kill the planet. Find peace with each other. Work to extinguish hate and ignorance.

Cannabis is an intoxicant that can make you smile and think as it regulates your nervous and endocannabinoid systems.

If you take a look at the world, a little more thinking is probably a good thing.

There is a reason ancient cultures worshiped pot.

We can and should cooperate, there is a bigger picture reason. Until we exercise our rights, the corporate system will try to remove them.

Try to fall in love, every day.

Love and laughter

Cannabis dream

We want freedom. We want ice cream. We want free ice cream or we are literally going to go ballistic.  It had been a long day, and nobody cared to consider how irate Sam had become. He was sitting on his comfortably uncomfortable, old worn out legless couch, watching the surveillance shadows. Are you sure you are going to go ballistic though? Last time you called for ice cream and got none you only sulked until you forgot.

I’ll give you all a sulk. CIA Sam doesn’t wait around.

Preaching about the evils of forced pot prohibition does get tiresome. Let’s face it, we will get cannabis legalization but the government has decided to be a bit of an ass about it. Hi, I wrote earlier about all that super science on the health benefits of marijuana, did you get a chance to read any of it? No? No time to read a little science on the plant you have gone out of your way to assure us all that it is so evil? Not to worry man, we will come back tomorrow, maybe with some new science data too.

What is the government waiting for? I remember when I was a kid, my brother and I were happily playing pool in some old bar while waiting for our dad to come back up the memory lane he was wandering down. Anyways, after a coke and a couple of games of pool we were feeling fine. Then in walked some local red necks. After a few minutes of watching us they slapped a coin down on the pool table and smugly walked off. We haven’t finished playing we told them, but red neck rules are the rules so the end of this game was pretty much the end of the bliss we had been enjoying. Without saying a word or even exchange a glance we just kept knocking that last black ball around the table just to spite the village hanging arounders. They hadn’t seen us play so they at first couldn’t figure out if we were really that bad or were just trying to stay on the table as long as possible. We would set up easier and easier shots for each other to miss. How could you miss that? It was easier to sink that last one than miss it! I think we kept those guys on the edge of their seats for at least another hour before they figured we were just playing as long as we could. The chief knuckle dragger eventually put the black ball down the hole and told us to fuck off.

It seems to me that the government has to be playing with us too. How can you prohibit a plant that is healthy for you? The answer is and always will be, because you let them. Government has a role to play in our lives, but it is not the central part of our life. Keep the street lights on, lock up violent people and try your best not to fuck things up too badly. Almost one out of three isn’t so bad I guess. But seriously, who do our government think they are kidding? Listen young fellow, this is the way government works, we have a nonsense policy and we are going to carry it out because we are always doing it this way and besides, we are actually all drunk on the power you let us wield over you. Eventually someone has to say, right you have had your bit of fun, now time for you to fuck off somewhere else. A lawyer will see it different I am sure, but there is no natural way that a government or their agents can really be able to tell you that you can’t use cannabis. If they have that power, then what is stopping them from making you do other things you don’t like. Today the stoners are oppressed with this nonsense but what if tomorrow they say you can’t go out jogging or hiking anymore, because some of the joggers and hikers are taking a shit on the public street and leaving it there for someone to slip on. Sorry about that folks but you can no longer jog. Would you be outraged? Would you start secretly jogging around your house in defiance? Or would you accept the new orders and make the best of it? If you aren’t a jogger anyway, what is the big deal right?

So where does the government stop? If they have the right to stop me from smoking pot, what else can they do? They do go to war, they do have crooked financial deals swirling around their time in public self service. We see example after example of corruption and lobbying/bribery which benefits the few at the top and shits on those below. Crooks that have mastered the art of bullshit to such a successful degree that they not only get elected but end up leading the other snake oil salesmen and women, and we the people have to rely on these sociopaths to do the right thing? Given the chance, a politician will cut you for a dime. And the worst part is, we let them. We concern ourselves with our own lives and don’t take responsibility for our role in the screw up that is the modern world.

We have apple phones and tablets, apparently there is a new watch out, which sounds more gimmick than useful new tech thing but anyways, what have we achieved with all these new gadgets? The world has become smaller for sure. We can know so much about anything that takes our fancy, but we also get to see terrible poverty and its resulting chaos cruelly waste countless lives. Each of us must share in the responsibility of knowing we are all either part of the problem or the solution. If we are part of the problem, then go ahead and look away. Hopefully you have something else more important to keep an eye on instead of just being lazy. If you do give a damn about helping to make a better world, then start small but aim for the stars. Good people will always find good people. Organically grown cannabis is actually healthy for you. This is such a funny situation. The anti pot people have no valid reason to deny the use of cannabis so after years of just making stuff up about pot they eventually end up just ignoring us. Yes, still busting people too, but their silence is interesting. We need to use social media to lovingly remind the authorities that they are not God, they are here to help run society better. It isn’t their responsibility to stop me from making a personal lifestyle choice. I would be just as appalled if the government started dictating what kind of hair cut we could have as I am when I see the government has decided that I can’t smoke pot based on nothing more than tradition, even after the science now says the herb is healthy.

There are so many other things to concern yourself with, but you cannot dismiss the cannabis debate. There are important points of principles here. A right to privacy, a right to freedom, a right to make up our own minds, especially when we get the same science data as the government. Science data by the way, which overwhelmingly points out that cannabis is healthy for you. It regulates your system better. Takes pain and stress away. Fights cancer but can cause paranoia, go figure. A generation ago they would have gone crazy if they thought the government was spying on them. Now we accept it without a second thought and also agree to be dictated to by a government that have gotten it wrong on pot. Not only that but government knows it is wrong. So they know and we know they know. But maybe a bigger question is, do they know that we know that they are dead wrong on cannabis? It is a bloody disgrace either way. All the pointless tax payer money being spent to play along with this pointless prohibition. Bonuses for the banks and tanks for the police. Cannabis consumers are not criminals. Marijuana is a medicine for our modern times. It promotes the growth of new brain cells. Lord knows I need more of those cells so on behalf of stupid people with ambitions everywhere, please legalize pot so we can move onto fixing the next problem.

Bob Marley goes corporate?

Bob Marley cannabis

Bob Marley was a lot of things to a lot of people, but a corporate stooge, he was not. It has just been announced that Bob Marley’s estate will use his image and name to promote a global marijuana brand. Ever since the American government began to ease prohibition, business has tried to figure out how to capitalize. So with dollars in their heart and a cynical marketing move they are trying to combine the love of greed with the loving life example that was Bob Marley.

Bob Marley cannabis

This is what big business wants. The Mac Bob Bud. Sir, do you want extra large dabs with that order? Happy heal meals for 10 dollars and stores being opened up all over the world. America, the most rabid cannabis prohibitionist will now turn into a militant exporter of the plant! Go figure. I don’t know what Bob would think of his name being used by a corporate investment fund but it, at the very least goes against his ideals of power to the people.

The ending of prohibition can go one of two ways. The most likely direction involves huge corporate money being pumped into cannabis production and distribution. Vast chains of McDonald like businesses giving the public what they want. Or we could have a home growing revolution where people take responsibility for their own medicine supply. I am rooting for the second option. Today big pharmaceutical companies rule our health. We must tolerate their obscene profits and swallow their toxic medicine. Scientific research on cannabis shows the plant is a powerful anti inflammatory agent. It fights pain in a non toxic way and increases appetite. It has been shown to fight cancer, protect the brain and regulate our nervous system. Having direct access to this medicine lessens the grip big business has over our lives.

Bob Marley cannabis

Bob Marley is not responsible for his decedents. His family are cashing in on his name. I presume some slick Wall Street type flew to Jamaica and kept throwing money at them until finally they bit. Bob Marley’s message was about love. Using his image and stature to sell pot to the world is an amazing coup for the money men. Hopefully along the way a bit of his soul infects their greedy intentions. One love.
