I JUST HAD TO SHARE THIS MESSAGE FROM MARITIMERS UNITED FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA SOCIETY…POSTED TO JUSTIFY DISPENSARIES:
“Cannabis isn’t as easily grown as commonly portrayed. There will be need for professionals of the growing industry, and professional companies to dispense it. In fact that demand has only increased in areas focusing on medical cannabis. Hope you have a wonderful day Mr. Godfrey.”
AND MY RESPONSE:
On the contrary…Cannabis is very easily grown..As easily grown as carrots, corn or lettuce. We need no professionals to grow these veggies for us, but only for convenience do we allow it. Cannabis can easily be grown en-masse for pennies per pound IF LEGAL to do so. Justifying exploitation and rationalizing it is only a way to rationalize and justify profiteering. The “focus” (and “demand”) for/on medical cannabis has ONLY increased because people are unable to produce cannabis outside of a criminal regulatory system making it much more scarce than it would otherwise be…You have a good day too…
Whilst there may be some need to grow for those with some kind of disability, my guess is that when legal and grown for pennies per pound, those now saying we need ‘professionals’, and those professionals themselves, will be MUCH less motivated to grow cannabis then. We now have ‘veggie dispensaries’…Called grocery stores…but the profit motive there is MUCH less than in the green-rush mentality of today’s illicit cannabis atmosphere. Let’s see how many stay ‘motivated’ to grow when the profit is reduced to that of growing veggies. I go almost daily to these grocery stores, but none of them display proudly that they are ‘compassion-clubs’…because accepting money for services rendered is BUSINESS, not ‘compassion’….and food is surely as life-sustaining as cannabis…Perhaps even more so…AND, I suppose, some would refer to farmers as “professionals”, but they are patently not as professional, with the same need for training as, say, a nuclear physicist or linguist. Who and what determines the amount of remuneration for services and goods produced? That’s simple….Supply and demand…and if that demand is kept artificially high (and supply kept ARTIFICIALLY low) through corrupt gov’ts, then it’s scarcity and the issues surrounding it that need to be addressed….clearly. Of course exploitation is facilitated by gov’t and criminal laws…making ARTIFICIALLY high demand and ARTIFICIALLY low supply. When medicine is monetized those WITHOUT THE CASH will be going without…so those ‘professionals’ have a moral obligation to provide TRUE compassion OUTSIDE of a monetized system of CREATED scarcity…now don’t they…
…and when you can get jailed for growing your own, or too much…of course the “demand” will be there from those who can grow legally…well da…! The ONLY real “need” people have is to be able to grow their own without limit from gov’t and their politically-affiliated corporate profiteers…..And, again, You have a good day too…
AND FINALLY MY RESPONSE ~
From Mary Thomas-Spears
To Stephen, I am going to keep saying this!
As long as everyone one insist on calling this “FOOD” a Medicine
IT WILL BE CONTROLLED AS ONE!
Cannabis is a FOOD FIRST!
PROVEN to be one of the MOST nutritious foods on the earth!
While it is Malnutrition that is the BIGGEST cause of Disease!
WE are all Endocannabinoids BASED life forms!
THIS HAS BEEN PROVEN!!!
Water CURES Dehydration too!!!
DO YOU WANT A PRESCRIPTION FOR IT TOO???
Marijuana Prohibition is Malnutrition and Genocide
