We noticed the Medical Innovation Bill is back in Parliament for discussion this week. It looks like the Medical Research Council ‘s opportunity to brief the Portfolio Committee on Health. The MRC (read Prof Charles Parry & Prof Bronwyn Myers) have always been cautious about their support of medical cannabis, but have both remarked on record they think the criminalisation of cannabis users is unjust. They cite more studies need to be done and dead against the vision of us stoners smoking joints, preferring the more gentile vision of controlled cannabinoid medicine dished out by a person in a white coat in a dispensary.

If Dagga has medicinal properties, why wait until you’re sick? Preventative medicine is the key……..but as soon as we ‘medicate’, we all become enemies of the state.

“You #dagga rookers just want it legal to get stoned”.
Yes. Which part of that don’t you understand?
For thousands of years mankind has used cannabis for it’s mind altering properties. How can (only 100 years of) prohibition make it wrong all of a sudden?

Cannabis, Mind Enhancements, and Culture, Part I

After more than 80 years of an almost worldwide prohibition our outlook on marijuana and its mind-altering effects is mostly dominated by fear, ignorance, and disinformation. There are still dozens of myths circulating about the negative effects of marijuana, myths that have been created and spread… …read more

We are always interested in reading about Colorado’s continuing foray into uncharted territory. This piece is about the effects, if any, the legalisation of weed has had on the black market. The more the plant is taxed and regulated, the more inflated the prices have to stay in a dispensary, the easier it is for the black market to flourish……

We really recommend this read. An essential insight into the early mechanics of what was to become the ‘War on Drugs’. Prohibition, ladies and gentlemen is a totally corrupt, contrived lie that was engineered to do more harm than the substances being banned. If any book can get your back up, it’ll be this one. Riveting stuff.
