A Happy New Year and A New Beginning

A new year is upon us and with it comes new possibilities. This year we will discover even more miraculous properties of cannabis. From cancers to other ailments we already know the capabilities that cannabinoids possess. We have seen two states move forward beyond medical needs and legalize for recreational use. With that comes the hope that it will make it easier for patients to obtain the necessary strains they require.
We need to keep in mind that it is not simply using cannabis but using it correctly that will achieve desired results. As we have discussed before each strain possess different compounds or cannabinoids. We have already seen 3 strains genetically mapped, discovering a variety of previously unknown compounds and it will be exciting to see more added to the list.
We have seen so many advances in the delivery methods used for patients. We are no longer only left with smoking. For patients there are very real solutions.
We have seen countless stories of patients who were unable to eat, unable to control their shaking or seizures who have taken only a small amount of cannabis and have been able to control their symptoms. We have also seen in studies where cannabis has slowed or stopped cancer growth. It is no longer deniable that cannabis has real medical use.
I am hopeful that with the advancement of Washington and Colorado’s legislation as well as the other states that have set up medical provisions that we will continue to see the path cleared for all states and ultimately all patients to have access to not only cannabis but quality and variety of strains. Individualized care is key and will only come about for the masses if it becomes legally available. We have suffered for too long. We have lost too many loved ones unnecessarily. Now is the time to act! Call, e-mail or write your representatives and urge them to work towards the common goal of providing for all a safe natural alternative to big Pharma’s poison.

Victories and More Roads To Travel

Tonight we witnessed history.  Tonight we saw the people of Washington and Colorado stand up and speak for legalization.  We witnessed the people stand for a new approach to the failed 75 year long prohibition method.  It is encouraging for all that have fought so hard, many of them till death, to finally see fruition of all their hard work.  Tonight should give courage to all that we can make a difference and we can end the War on Drugs.  Too many have lost their property, jobs, children, loved ones or their life to a senseless approach to a social issue.  We need to stand up for the rest of the country that is still imprisoned under prohibition.  Citizens who pose no harm to others should not be living in fear.  We know there is medical value.  We know there are more harmful things out there that are currently legal.  We know how much we could benefit from legalization including saving billions and creating residual income through taxes, fees and creation of a new industry.  We know that we need a new viable approach.  We know the time is now.  Do not let it stop with today.  Do not let it stop with Washington and Colorado.  Let us stand up and make change happen.  Let us stand up and make history once more.  Election day is over now it is time to get to work!
