If cannabis were unknown, and bioprospectors were suddenly to find it in some remote mountain crevice, its discovery would no doubt be hailed as a medical breakthrough. Scientists would praise its potential for treating everything from pain to cancer, and marvel at its rich pharmacopoeia—many of whose chemicals mimic vital molecules in the human body. In reality, cannabis has been with humanity for thousands of years and is considered by many governments (notably America’s) to be a dangerous drug without utility. Any suggestion that the plant might be medically useful is politically controversial, whatever the science says. It is in this context that, on April 20th, America’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement saying that smoked marijuana has no accepted medical use in treatment in the United States although there are many studies proving the immense healing potential of cannabis.
Before sickness comes tension and a very important issue to avoid sickness is to release tension – to relax. So if someone likes to smoke cigarettes or even joints it is always more healthy than to stay in a state of tension and far less impeding than alcohol. So the criminalisation of cannabis (and more and more of tabac) is one of the many results of continued ignorance. Cannabis is one of the best “allies plants” for human beings.
And even if somebody is healthy and wants to smoke a joint it is the free decision of this person and the collective – the government – has nothing to say about that. The freedom of the individual must be the prime directive of all laws. After all, smoking – cigarettes or joints – does not kill other people like i.e. wars. But if you buy into the lie of “passive smoking”, then of course it is dangerous. The so-called passive smokers create (rather unconsciously) themselves often illnesses just to prove that they are “right” or blame smokers if they don’t feel good. It seems that only smokers are responsable for illness – all the others are just victims…
