My short response to the “DC leaders continue discussion at marijuana hearing,” without completely losing it since we have thousands of years of recorded use with the Cannabis plant.
$100 fine and “drug education”
a) We shouldn’t be fined for a plant deemed harmless for THOUSANDS of years!
b) Most people like myself could probably teach the TRUTH about these plants and the compounds they possess vs the real DRUGS the FDA pushes doctors to sell.
“It’s illegal, keep it that way”
a) Slavery was once legal, do you think we should go back to that?
b) Women used to be considered Second-class citizens and was illegal for them to vote, do you think we should go back to that?
“Marijuana is a Health risk…” Yes, that’s why there has been ZERO deaths from the direct consumption of Cannabis…EVER. Why are most States recognizing it as a Medicinal Plant to HELP patients?
We shouldn’t be limited to growing a certain number of plants, while Datura (Jimsonweed, TOP photo) grows everywhere from deep in the woods to the dunes at the beaches and Castor Oil plants (Castor Beans to make Ricin, BOTTOM photo) that can be purchased at your local plant nursery when they are known to be DEADLY with misuse. Examples like these make people, like myself, believe that they only care about Profit over People, by not letting people use a plant that could actually help them.
Prohibition does NOT work and it will NEVER work. We all just want to be FREE, TRULY FREE!
I am working on a full write up about these PLANTS.
