Liberate Cannabis (part 1/3)

On July 16, hundreds of people marched and rolled on Pacific Ave. and over to Santa Cruz City Hall in a demonstration of community solidarity opposing the recent decision of the Supreme Court and of Congress that leaves sick and dying Californians vulnerable to persecution from the federal government.

In a symbolic act of compassionate access, WAMM patient members led the march holding live cannabis plants. This solemn event honored the 154 WAMM members who have died since WAMM's inception in 1993.

Re: Liberate Cannabis (part 1/3)

I have seen nor heard enough talk of how cannabis is an edible medicine. It seems to me that much of the rhetoric prohibiting marijuana criticizes the concept of smoking it. As well, how about the dietary benefits of all hemp (ie. nutrients and essential quantities of omega-fatty acids are provided by injesting marijuana plants)? Basicly, it seems to me that the whole concept of incinerating the herb, then inhaling the smoky poisons, is a key issue toward liberating marijuana. By emphasizing its edibility, there may be less for the public to speculate upon, making way for more real physiological data concerning the wide ranging benefits of the cannabis diet. I believe, some delightful results are predictable.
"Eat it! Eat it! Eat it!," I say.
"Show everyone how to eat cannabis and have many happy years."
