http://www.youtube.com/user/IAMHOSSERHEMP420 brings us yet more education.
Dont know why I keep on covering this ground, maybe it’s because I see so much ignorance towards this subject, maybe it’s because I know that we have been lied to, or maybe it’s because stupid fucks that think cannabis is harmful and as such users are criminals always get their moral high ground heard, while ignoring the ever mounting facts.
We even have the Police blindly following any and every law surrounding the plant with no personal common sence evident, your scum of the earth if you smoke cannabis, scum of the fucking earth.
Ok so that last bit was sarcasm but it does highlight how you are made to feel, and for those here in the UK I have said this before, but in case you missed it somehow, the British Government have known for 37 fucking years that cannabis kills cancer cells, run a search here or google it for the facts, good luck with that.
Big thanks to Bill for this post, and http://www.youtube.com/user/IAMHEMP420 of course.

“The Portuguese government decriminalised all drug use, including the so-called “dangerous drugs” like heroin, methamphetamine and crack cocaine. decriminalization is not legalisation, and the police can still arrest people for drug use and drug trafficking. But with the passage of Law 30/2000, drug use or possession is not deemed a criminal offence but instead, an administrative one. Portuguese drug policy experts confronted the fact that prison stigmatised people, teaches criminal survival skills and makes social reintegration difficult. And putting people behind bars didn’t decrease drug use.
People are allowed to have up to 10 days-worth of any drug. Nuno Capaz, a sociologist in Lisbon, said, “We’re not in the business of handing out criminal records. The police aren’t stalking drug users to arrest them.” The Portuguese criminal justice system is no longer overcrowded with drug users. According to the Institute of Drug and Drug Dependence, the number of people arrested for criminal offences related to drugs plummeted from 14,000 to an average of 5,000-5,500 per year.
A new strategy for understanding the social determinants of drug use and addiction was developed based on the principles of humanism and pragmatism. The values of dignity, respect, choice and the guaranteed right to treatment is the bedrock of the National Drug Strategy. This fundamental paradigm shift has changed the way Portuguese society thinks about those who use illegal drugs. They believe that antes tratar que punir, it is better to treat than punish. Drug users aren’t criminals to be demonized and incarcerated, but human beings who use drugs recreationally and should be left alone, or have an addiction and should be offered help.
The pragmatism built into Portuguese drug policy eliminated the adoption of solutions and interventions based on unscientific, coercive, menacing drug war lies and hype. An unapologetic harm reduction approach is embedded at every level of the system, from the understanding of the causes of addiction (poverty, social isolation) to the variety of drug treatment options available (mobile methadone vans and non-12-step drug treatment.)”
This in from a valued reader and possible new researcher/writer for this site.
Oh yea, and the http://www.pressassociation.com/ for breaking it, highlighted parts are my own take on this.
Liberal Democrats are poised to call for the decriminalization of the possession of all drugs, insisting that current laws are “harmful” and “ineffective”. Yep just like America has been doing.
Party members are almost certain to back a motion at next month’s conference urging the Government to set up an expert panel to consider the decriminalization of personal drug use. And they would wouldn’t they, the Lib Dem‘s need the support, so this little sweetener is hopes for favor.
The motion will become party policy if it wins support at the conference in Birmingham, which is likely to provoke tensions with the party’s Conservative coalition partners. And tension there will certainly be, the CONservatives are all about protection and continuation of wealth accumulation.
The Lib Dem’s would like to see drug law reforms based on legislation in Portugal, where the personal use of any controlled drug is no longer a criminal offence. No longer!! try ten years and the fact that drug abuse has fallen since their trial started.
Drug users would no longer face a prison sentence or fine but would instead be required to go for treatment or counselling. The current penalties for dealing drugs would not change. Maybe but they would have to re-evaluate how much is considered legal for personal use.
The motion states that there is “increasing evidence that the UK’s drugs policy is not only ineffective and not cost-effective but actually harmful, impacting particularly severely on the poor and marginalised”. It points out that those countries which have decriminalised possession of drugs have not seen increased use of those drugs relative to their neighbours. Bingo!! but those facts have been around for years and we are stuck with a government lagging behind.
“Individuals, especially young people, can be damaged both by the imposition of criminal records and by a drug habit, and … the priority for those addicted to all substances must be healthcare, education and rehabilitation, not punishment,” the motion says. Common sence don’t you think?
“One of the key barriers to developing better drugs policy has been the previous Labour government‘s persistent refusal to take on board scientific advice, and the absence of an overall evaluative framework of the UK’s drugs strategy.” Sort of true, we know that Labour sacked their top scientific advisor over the legalisation of cannabis, only to hire a YES man who to my knowledge is the current advisor, the truth of the matter is all past governments have been demonizing drug use, while happily raking it in from the diminished health of drinkers and smokers.
Lib Dem members believe that an evidence-based policy could produce large savings for the Home Office and Ministry of Justice, which could be reinvested in education, treatment and rehabilitation programmes. Ok but will they show all of the evidence found that some drugs (cannabis) are actually beneficial to your health, look up cannabis kills CANCER!!
The motion will be moved by Ewan Hoyle, founder of Liberal Democrats for Drug Policy Reform, and supported by Lib Dem MEP Sir Graham Watson. Party members can submit amendments to the motion by September 5, ahead of the conference on September 17-21.
Whats the first thing that comes to mind when you see that word above? (Marijuana) I will happily lay a bet that you think of hippies, pot heads or druggies, but that’s ok, you have been programmed to think like that, you were not able to gather your own information about it so you took the instantly trustable side of the government, they told you that it’s against the law for a reason but failed to let you know or prove what that reason was, but hey that’s ok to, they are the government after all, maybe they know something we don’t and so we must embrace their guiding hand for our own good.
Or maybe they are just looking out for the interests of their corporate friends that only exist to part your cash from you, for those who don’t like to hear these sorts of things, I suggest that you research into these subjects your-self, for those of you who have an opinion, whats your take on this?
Are you getting this yet?
Is it sinking in?
Do you realise that you have been lied to?

Ok these are doctors talking about pot/cannabis and its benefits for a range of medical conditions, do you want to take on board what they are saying, or would you rather listen to your governments opinion?
Governments know everything that’s good for you and as such should be trusted at every level, lol.
In this country we have of course the police enforcing these fuck backwards laws, that prevent us from self medicating and or socializing peacefully with others, not much money in that eh!
At this stage ask your-self why cannabis is illegal, do the work, find the truth, just follow the money and seek out the corruption and control that governs your life in the heard.

Same goes for us here in the UK to, educate your selves!!
Some will continue to think that governments know best, I prefer to do some work and see if they are right or wrong, why not watch these vids and do a little research into something that one day could save your life, or then again you could go ahead and ask our governments advice on this, in fact after researching this subject “please” go ahead and ask the gov, it will prove to you that they don’t give a shit about any of us.
Here are four vids to help get you started on your research, try to get that image of a “stoner” out of your head first, if this is true we need to remind ourselves how many of our family members have died while the governments knew this.
