5. Do you have low blood pressure?
Because marijuana lowers blood pressure too. Imagine all those blood pressure pills making big pharma rich... and you'll know why this will never become legalized.

8. Strange... weed lowers blood pressure
It should do well for you instead of causing palpitations.

3. Legalize it, already...
Tax the shit out of it... I don't care, All I know is that alcohol far outweighs in terms of toxic effects, not to mention aggressive behaviors. I've never seen in all my time of the 60's and 70's anyone get aggressive after smoking a number. I did see a lot of people get the munchies and drive 30 in a 45 mile per hour zone, forget the punch line of a joke, laugh uncontrollably, "get into" music, and cough from holding in harsh hits - definitely not good for the small airways of your lungs,..

But, enough is enough. Legalize the shit out of it, and let's make some consumer goods out of HEMP by-products, use hemp seeds as a source of nutrition, supplant tobacco crops so we stop killing people with the worst drug that the government subsidizes farmers for- tobacco!

4. Something that has been used for 1000s of years...
that works for lots of illnesses. It is cheap to grow and people can grow their own for pennies; things BigPharma HATES: cheap, easy and it works.

10. Being able to keep people stupid about marijuana works well for the corruptors -- !!!
We need a big push to end this phony drug war which is one of the major corrupting
influences on our government and police enforcement --- at the highest levels!!!

14. It's a farce . . . and it's been suggested that "Poppy" refers ....
to some connection between Bush and our phony drug war ---

Obviously, the drug running couldn't continue without the involvement of some part of corrupt government and police enforcement --- at the highest levels ---
it would be impossible without that cooperation.

We have also seen the connections between drug running and the CIA ---
Iran-Contra --- this is happening at the highest levels.

13. The evolution of cannabis and humans is probably more symbiotic than many realize.
Edited on Wed Dec-05-07 10:11 AM by Bonobo
Who knows? Cannabis use is old. Way old. How old? We don't know. But if it is on the order of millions of years... think about it. And not just Cannabis. DMT is produced by the pineal gland.

Psychotropic Plant Consumption and Early Man

http://synthetic_universe.blogspot.com/2006/01/revoluti...

What inspired the animal to look to the night sky and see, not just stars, but constellations, deities, and mythological stories? What forces drove the evolution of the primate brain to function beyond the boundaries of behavioral instinct and into a universe of perception which displaced time and space, projected meaning and purpose upon environmental elements, and established synthetic symbols and icons for subsequent cultural manipulation? What was it that initially delineated early humans from the physical constrictions of the natural world?

Carl Sagan speculates on such questions in his book, The Dragons of Eden, and offers a little food for thought. He considers a band of human Pygmies that intoxicate themselves on marijuana while performing mundane tasks like fishing or hunting. He casually ponders the possibility that in human history the cultivation of marijuana led generally to the invention of agriculture, and thereby to civilization (Sagan, 201). Of course, the real world is perhaps a bit more complex than that. The forces that drive human evolution are vast, and modern science continues to unwrap the mysteries of our ontological existence. The fact that every human culture at some point in history practiced the consumption of at least one version of a psycho active substance shouldnt be ignored when considering the evolution of the human animal (Weil, et al, 10). Some scientists studying the molecular composition of flora have found evidence to suggest a symbiosis between psychoactive plants (i.e. entheogens) and indigenous wild-life consumers(3).

ENTHEOGENS AND ANIMALS:
Psychoactive plants typically manufacture chemicals analogous to neurotransmitters functioning within the mammalian brain(3). Morphine from the opium plant mimics the function of endorphins, and certain cacti like Peyote produce ergot alkaloids and mescaline, which mimic serotonin(3). Tobacco produces nicotine that mimics acetylcholine, coffee beans produce caffeine which mimics adenosine (3), and marijuana produces THC that mimics Anandamide(3). Anthropologist R.J. Sullivan suggests that many of the psycho active plants which mammals consume provide necessary nutrients for brain operation, especially during times of potential malnutrition when food resources become scarce. During these times, mammals that consume psychoactive plants receive many of the chemical compounds necessary for efficient brain function and can survive until other food sources are found(3). Plants that manufacture analogous neurotransmitters potentially take advantage of ecological niches defined by mammalian consumption. Seeds, which cant be digested, may be transported by an organism and deposited within excrement to a new location, and the boundaries of a plants ecological niche are expanded.

15. PLANTS are our nutrition and our medicines . . . many people don't understand that ---
Much of the information about plants has been destroyed ---
much of that occurred as our medical practices moved into the hands of males ---

Even right now, many people do not understand the connection between plants and health ---

Much of the information has been lost --- and we'll never know what nature provided,
including plants which provided birth control, ways to limit fertility, ways to end
conception, etal --- intentionally destroyed.

This PLANT/Marijuana is now being used as an excuse to invade and control other nations ---
and in suppposed efforts to eradicate the marijuana we are doing great harm to citizens of
those nations with spraying, etc.
