Ok now I'm convinced...

Posted on Wed, Feb 13, 2013 at 1:57 PM

Can't spent too much time today considering all the possible conspiracies people talk about, you'd go batty. And especially the war on drugs, when I am a person that has found great pain relief from smoking marijuana. Now I'm not ignorant to the stigma surrounding this plant. And to be honest I prefer to eat products made with pot, instead of smelling like Cheech & Chong. Which can be hard to avoid at times. If Canada would wake up, as a recent article in The Coast has pointed out, people that know the legitimate benefits of this amazing plant, both health as well as financial, know the war on drugs is a sham. This is where I have become personally convinced it is the pharmaceutical agenda behind pulling the real strings on the marijuana issue. A simple visit to the doctors office. My doc is well aware that I smoke for pain. I have not tried to hide it. He has stated in the past that he won't issue a license as it can contribute to addiction! Well not much of a doctor with that opinion, but that is another matter. We'll talk about that one when he has no problem issuing prescriptions for opiate based meds. Pure hypocrisy. But to really drive the point home, he is willing to give me a prescription for Cesamet. A synthetic thc pill! I might as well been slapped in the face. That is like saying, "Here you can have this refined white sugar, but we'll arrest you if we catch you with any sugar cane." Again such bold faced hypocrisy. And I don't entirely blame the doctors. They are puppets. Period. Because if they had any real common sense and really did care about the health of their patients, they wouldn't let some faceless corporation dictate drug policy, just so they can have a bigger bottom line this quarter. And please don't try to convince me that it's about proper doses, as some doctors use as an argument. You can't convince me for a second that some stoner who has been smoking recreation-ally, can figure out what strains are best for what, but yet a highly trained chemist can't?!? Please how stupid do you think we are? It's time to have health CARE in Canada, not just a health system. End the war on marijuana! —Just Want Relief From The Pain!
