The Washington Post has two videos I think are important to see, one comes in sequence right after the other. There is an especially uncomfortable feeling I get when tragedy, ignorance and cruelty are displayed before my very eyes, and I wonder why the President of the United States, this one or any one of them, have not gone on TV and just called off the war on drugs. You really have to wonder about the honesty and compassion of these presidents and the army of drug warriors that follow them.
I have published about CBD (cannabidiol)—legal medical marijuana in every state of the union—which is helping parents find a safe, natural alternative to pharmaceuticals for their children with serious neurological conditions. CBD’s expansive curative power is becoming more and more accepted and discussed. I have been, along with many others, crying in the wilderness for the war central governments have been carrying out against their own people. Only the sickest sociopaths would design a war against people using a plant as an excuse. And only brute heartless sadists would carry out such an agenda.
The Hill reported last week that Congressman Steve Cohen and several other Democrats have introduced legislation to create a National Commission on Federal Marijuana Policy, which would “examine the conflicts created by state laws that allow marijuana use and the federal prohibition on marijuana.” Cohen’s own statement notes that a similar commission was established in 1971 and recommended decriminalization of marijuana in 1973. As we all know the government does not listen to anything it does not want to listen to.
Cohen states that in the four decades since then “the federal government has only expanded its War on Drugs and continued to prohibit the use of marijuana,” and that “public attitudes and scientific understandings of marijuana have changed significantly and it’s time to reevaluate federal policy, particularly in light of the growing movement toward state legalization.”
CBD’s molecular mechanism/mode of action in most ailments has not been documented, or that is what they like to say. Dr. Ben J. Whalley, a leading researcher on marijuana and its effects on seizures, says that while there are serious questions about giving the drug to children with severe seizures it may be the best option for some. Dr. Whalley like most researchers in the mainstream just cannot come out and say that CBD is fantastic and recommend it to every child with seizures and autism. You can see him talking on the follow up video on the Washington Post.
My book Medical Marijuana covers the full range of use of this medicinal plant including getting high and kicking back and relaxing a bit with it. It’s the most uptight people that need medical marijuana the most (not counting all the men, women and children who are suffering and in pain). The biggest hypocrites in the world are those in Washington who drink whiskey at parties and then go hunting down the pot smokers they see hiding behind every tree.
They made the native Indians miserable and they are doing a good job against all men and woman who dare to light up throwing millions of them in jail. I could go on all day but just tell me why, if Obama is a good, decent human being, why he just does not get on television and call off the drug war in plain simple language?
I am personally using the products from Green Garden Golden, specifically a salve that I just would never want to be without. I use it for any problem on the skin including toe fungus.
Marijuana is a wonder drug! When pharmaceutical companies no longer deliver their drugs, as is now happening in Greece, meaning when economies collapse into deep depressions, we .can learn to take care of ourselves with marijuana, a medicine we can grow ourselves. Marijuana was given to us by Nature for many uses and can only be considered beneficial and the people who are against it as incorrect and unfeeling in their judgment. There really is no grey area when it comes to marijuana, especially with CBD that has nothing illegal in it.
