(ed:..we can’t even get the clown-politicians who rule over us to admit that pot has medicinal-value – they seem able to ignore the fact that (as just one example) canada has had medicinal-marijuana for 21 years – and is now moving to full legalisation for recreational-purposes…
..and do you know why our politicians (both the tories and labour) have this intransigence..?..it is because they are owned by the booze-pushers..end of story…
..and fuck them..!..eh..?..those tory and labour politicians who won’t acede to the demands of those who put them there..as poll after poll shows most new zealanders want what canada is now getting..
..namely full legalisation for recreational purposes..
..nothing less will suffice..)
You’ve heard about medical marijuana.
The pot plant’s therapeutic value is seldom questioned – except perhaps by those who profit more from its prohibition than legalization and regulation and the occasional medical professional who insists the harms of the weed far out weigh the harms of prohibition.
But is anyone really even listening to those Chicken Littles anymore?
Even Trump and his AG Jeff Sessions garner a response of a deep sigh and an eye roll from a public curious on what they will do.
And with this mainstream recognition that the herb has more healing power than some politicians care to acknowledge – other traditionally more frightening illicit plants are being noted for their therapeutic value too.
Plants or should I say fungi like psilocybin mushrooms are being turned to for medical purposes.
The ‘magic’ ‘ shroom is considered a Schedule I drug – the same federal class marijuana sits in – for it has no recognized medicinal value and ‘a high potential for abuse’.
But tell that to the desperate sick people who swear by its therapeutic value.
