"Disturbances of the stomach and digestion, loss of appetite or ravenous hunger, vomiting, nausea, weakening of the organs of breathing, coughing, hoarseness, paralysis, weakening of the organ of generation to the point of impotence, lack of libido, back pain, disorders of the eye and ear, total diminution of bodily powers, paleness, thinness, pimples on the face, decline of intellectual powers, loss of memory, attacks of rage, madness, idiocy, epilepsy, fever and finally suicide."
This was not the effects of drugs but the effects of masturbation. The beliefs, numerous treatments and consequential barbaric cures regarding masturbation continued in the scientific field until as late as 1897. Psychological treatments continued thereafter and the myths still continue today such was the strength of the establishment's power to condition the masses. So now we have an understanding that established public servants will outrageously lie to the public to exert their will, ask yourselves why cannabis is prohibited and why the establishment have been lying to us since around the 1930's?
Since the 1930's our governments have been actively convincing the mass population around the world that cannabis can be fatally bad for us. All kinds of propaganda and distortions of truth have been used to do this, not unlike the list of detrimental effects surrounding masturbation. However research, life experience, contradictory evidence and continual resistance are proving this persistent message to be false - intentionally false. The lies surrounding cannabis however are not carried out for the same reasoning as the lies surrounding 'masturbation madness'.
Why? Well, it wasn't only because it was pushed by lobbyist from pharmaceutical companies and oil companies to stranglehold their respected industries. It was also because of racism and the fear that white girls would be lead astray by 'the black man'. This was indeed the reason for cannabis to be widely referred to as 'Marijuana'. This term was used by black Americans and made familiar through government propaganda to encourage wider condemnation, by those good honest to god, law-abiding, middle-class, god-fearing, self-governing, white gullible 'sheeple'.
At the Leveson enquiry (regarding The Culture, Practice and Ethics of the Press) in 2012, the ex-Prime Minister, Gordon Brown discussed when he reclassified cannabis in 2009. It was suggested he did so to appease Rupert Murdoch who has a vested interest to be 'anti-cannabis' expressly because of the monopoly of pharmaceutical and oil corporations, who are backed by the same banks and the same politicians. Through News Corporation attempts continue to sway popular culture to believe cannabis to be harmful.
Brown denies this of course and tries to convince us that he has strong principles i.e. he 'felt cannabis was dangerous anyway'. So much for science then Gordon. Regardless of the truth, Brown is sucked in to the paranoia set out by the bullshit of the 1930's. Creating laws to bring about his own personal preference is ILLEGAL - He should have been stopped by the spineless MPs at the time. The House of Lords and the justice system which should have blocked it too. Under his own admission he should now be brought to justice for abusing his position.
The video above of Dr. Donald Tashkin's MD (U.C.L.A) research explains that heavy cannabis users have less exposure to lung cancer than those who smoke nothing at all. 5000 years of cannabis use and not a single documented death. We are cannabis' perfect partner because our bodies receptors (endocannabinoids) are designed to respond to the ingredient THC. Cannabis rids our bodies of faulty cells. Block our endocannabinoids and we can become less interested in food, depressed, suicidal and more open to tumours. Stimulate our endocannabinoids and we get the 'munchies', are euphoric, placid and less likely to get cancer. Why is it we have the perfect receptors in our bodies to receive cannabis? The same way we have minerals in our body. It's all part of evolution baby!
If you still believe cannabis is so bad for you because the establishment tells you it is - JFK was assassinated by a lone gunman, building seven of the World Trade Centre fell down and the war on Iraq was started because Bush and Blair believed them to have 'Weapons of Mass Destruction'. Oh and there is an invisible man in the sky who loves you, unless you do something he doesn't like in which case he will send you to burn in hell!
