Medical Marijuana is a Blessing!
It’s a crying shame that the vastly outdated drug policy in the United Kingdom has limited access to medical-grade marijuana, prompting patients or users to turn to growing a crop themselves or scoring deals on the black market. This goes against one’s better judgment when a patient needs quality controlled medication and not back street junk.
Here in the UK there is an ongoing campaign to reschedule cannabis from a Schedule 1 Class B drug back to a Schedule 4 controlled substance. Whilst we wait for this to happen, vital research will be put on the back burner. This is outrageous when highly addictive controlled drugs are handed out like confetti at doctors up and down the country. Sometimes Government logic seems totally at odds with the feeling of the general public and sound reasoning.
This is 2017, not the 1800s. We need to have a modern view on such things, regardless of whether that is from a medicinal or leisurely pursuit viewpoint. How can anyone look down on marijuana when alcohol causes such major problems with violence and alcoholism.
It’s pathetic that people look down on cannabis with a snobbish conceit. How can anyone judge a natural product that grows on God’s green earth when there’s Devil drugs like opiates waiting to stick their claws into anyone – patient or addict – it doesn’t matter. Medical marijuana is one of nature’s blessings that is vastly under utilized.
In the United States, for instance, The High Times Cannabis Cup even has it’s own healthier option – The High Times Medical Cannabis Cup. These are run in states where marijuana is legal, predominantly in Western States.
As much as all decent people want to stay on the right side of the law, here in the UK if the Government doesn’t help people who are law-abiding citizens and deserve to be free of pain and suffering, then they will have no choice but to take matters into their own hands. Growing ones’ own marijuana crop and buying it through a criminal network of dealers are the only realistic options on the table. Customs is so tight anyone would be foolish to try and get a parcel delivered by airmail.
