OK, since the recent news topic got shut, i will post in this one instead, because its of the same nature.
Im going to lay this down, because this topic of discussion is something which means the world to me, and i have to say what i say, because i honestly
would not be where i am now without it, and other compounds. It is our God given right, if you want me to put it that way, to use these substances for
positive purposes. Fact is, you have a chemical in you now which is Class A/Schedule 1, but is infact the most profound experience inducing chemical
there is... '___'. EVERYONE has experienced it to some extent when they dream, when they were born (and childhood), in lucid dreaming and other

I am very annoyed that there are still people today who consider Cannabis a drug, especially those who continually promote distortions of the facts,
and outright lies, like the government and our ever complient corporate media. There is simply NO logic behind Cannabis being illegal; Millions use it
on a daily basis, and will continue too, despite any classification the government gives it. Ever since it became an illegal substance, there has been
absolutely no evidence to show that its status has benefited individuals or society as a whole. Infact, i would argue that it has done FAR more
damage, putting innocent people in jail, costing billions to enforce, and causing some people to go crazy out of fear of both the law, and the
information the brain recieves whilst in this heightened state.
Yes, heightened. All psychoactive compounds connect you/open you up to more
information/dimensions, which can be used for healing not only of yourself, but others aswell.
Cannabis, and other psychedelic plants (and fungus!) have been used for thousands of years, and are still used today. The Shamans and various
indiginous people living in the Amazon know how to combine various plants for a variety of healing purposes. Big Pharma has a long history of trying
too, or succeeding in stealing various plants molecular structures and combinations for profit, and patenting it, when the knowledge was not theirs to
begin with, and never will be.
A great example of this is Curare (en.wikipedia.org...
). Amazonian hunters, according to the mainstream view, discovered this (like
all the others) by trail and error, and experimentation. I will tell you now for a fact, this is a OUTRIGHT LIE;
There are forty types of curare in the Amazon, made from seventy plant species. To produce it, you must mix several plants and boil them for 72 hours,
whilst avoiding the fragrant but deadly vapors. The final product is not dangerous unless its injected under the skin. Even eating it does nothing.
This is beyond trail and error, everyone should be able to see that. Their explanation is they get this information from induced states through
Ayauscha etc, psychedelics. They have a mind blowing amount of information, and can produce visible results with it.. yet its all attributed to
mysticism and experimentation, when it clearly is more than that.
For those who don't know, the history of Cannabis being an illegal compound is a very interesting one. I suggest you all watch this documentary,
which details this trail through its legal status history, all be it happening in the last 100 years!
Once you have finished that, you will probably be feeling how i am feeling right now as i write this post... very annoyed that the mainstream
perception of this plant is so backwards, and is nothing more than the result of propaganda for one mans own gain. That man being Harry J
This "study" should make you laugh, because if you remember, Gordon Brown spoke recently about how he thought Cannabis should be put back up to
Class B. What very nice timing for this "study" to come out..
Fact is, anyone who goes "crazy" through using Cannabis is because of external influences, and not Cannabis itself. Cannabis is merely a conscious
state altering compound that helps you percieve more information that you would not normally pay attention too. All psychedelics work in this way.
There is nothing "out there" that can't be seen, heard or experienced that isn't already within you right now. But through childhood trauma and
conditioning, which can be losely translated into "just being alive on Earth in the modern world", all this streams of information are stopped by
your ego. Conditioning is what builds the ego, "the door you must walk through", and psychedelics provide the key to helping you unlock it.. but not
walking through it;
On a serious note, psychedelics are not the same as alcohol for example. Alcohol works in a completely different way, a very negative one at that, by
actually taking away information from your perspective, aswell as poisoning the body and mind. But, it "helps" millions "get away" from the daily
grind of work life, it helps them escape their ego.. thats why you see so many idiots being roudy and noisey, and being all "sexy" when drunk,
because deep down they want to be heard and loved, like all of us.
That is the reason why alcohol is legal, and widely available, and Cannabis is not. Cannabis is the mildest of all psycedelics, and is a fantastic way
for someone to begin the process of deconditioning themselves and escaping the ego. But sadly, people end up going "crazy", because they have no one
to guide them through the process, except their ego, which latches onto the most convienient explanation.. the one which states "you are crazy. you
can't experience these states. its not real".. the one which is put forward by the state and media..
Every time you hear Cannabis being talked about in a negative light, just remember that it is not true. If you haven't experienced a psychedelic
state, then sorry, but you have no grounds to even attempt to answer back to that statement i made. You can't argue against something which you have
not experienced and lived for yourself. Using psychedelics is more than just using a "drug".. alcohol is a drug, cannabis is a herb. Big
Cannabis is not a gateway drug. It does not force its users to do anything. It is the persons choice whether they proceed. To link Cannabis to the
beginning of a heroin junkie is just an ouright fallacy, and is a line of propaganda that has been around for decades, but entirely untrue.
