Have you ever wondered why this is?
Why we find ourselves when we
become lost? Is it because all of the
crutches that we clung to all
disappear? Is it because we realize
all of the sudden that the “truths”
that others espoused and that we
had merely accepted are actually
false? Is it because we are shaken
out of our comfort zone, our
autopilot?
Whatever it is … I think it is healthy
to “be lost” every once in a while.
I’ve been adrift before, haven’t you?
If you are there, now, realize that
there is a tomorrow, and it’s actually
brighter than yesterday … because
the yesterday is how you got in that
place. Time to keep on walking and
wondering and wandering.
You will see many of us on the trail. …read more

A businessman met a beautiful girl
and agreed to spend the night with
her for $500.
They did their thing, and, before he
left, he told her that he did not have
any cash with him,but he would have
his secretary write a check and mail
it to her, calling the payment ‘RENT
FOR APARTMENT.’
On the way to the office, he regretted
what he had done, realizing that the
whole event had not been worth the
price.
So he had his secretary send a check
for $250 and enclose the following
typed note:
‘Dear Madam:
Enclosed find a check for$250 for rent
of your apartment..!! I am not
sending the amount agreed upon,
because when I rented the place,I
was under the impression that:
#1 – it had never been occupied;
#2 – there was plenty of heat; and
#3 – it was small enough to make me
feel cozy and at home.

However, I found out that:
#1 – it had been previously occupied,
#2 – there wasn’t any heat, and
#3 – it was entirely too large.’

Upon receipt of the note, the girl
immediately returned the check for
$250 with the following note:

Dear Sir,
#1 – I cannot understand how you
could expect a beautiful apartment to
remain unoccupied indefinitely.
#2 – As for the heat, there is plenty
of it, if you know how to turn iton.
#3 – Regarding the space, the
apartment isindeed of regular size,
but if you don’t have enough
furniture to fill it, please do not
blame the management.
So, Please send the renting full or we
will be forced to contact your present
landlady. …read more

Perception of Dagga as a Safe Drug is Scientifically Sound

 

2013 has been an excellent year for modern dagga research. Lots of the propaganda and disinformation pushed forward by government paid organizations have been debunked and the latest research continues to debunk many myths people full heartedly believe to be true about dagga.

Propagandists gave us cancer causing carcinogens and we knocked them back by vaporizing. Then along came Dr William Courtney who cured brain cancer in a 9 month old baby with juiced dagga and also reminded us that the THC Acid in dagga does not become active until it has been converted from THC Acid to THC by heating or otherwise smoking dagga.

“Dagga is the world’s most important vegetable” – Dr. William Courtney

Early propagandists told us dagga is most dangerous and could be fatal. Later however the LD50 of dagga revealed that it is physically impossible to fatally overdose on dagga.

In a study done in 2007 by Professor David Nutt he charted the harms and dependence of various drugs including tobacco, alcohol and dagga. Dagga is the least harmful and least dependence producing substance of these three drugs yet alcohol and tobacco is legally available to adults.

Rational scale to assess the harm of drugs mean physical harm and mean dependence

Rational scale to assess the harm of drugs mean physical harm and mean dependence

In May of 2013 a study found that dagga may combat HIV and we learn of Marathon runner Henry Ngomezulu who cured his HIV with a dagga tea infusion.

In the same month another study revealed that habitual dagga use is not link to cancer and more studies in the month of May 2013 found that dagga may combat depression, diabetes, brain damage and even reduce the risk of bladder cancer.

In the entire existence of man not a single person has died because of a dagga overdose.

The scientific evidence clearly indicates that dagga is indeed not only safe but is also a beneficial herb to aid humanity.

Prohibitionist’s Food for thought for; If you really believe dagga is dangerous why do you keep in the wild where any person desperate enough sells without an age restriction?

The Medical Minute: Dagga Dependency of Suspect Importance

In the early 90s before the pharmacological value of cannabis was realized, studies surfaced in support of cannabis dependence and withdrawal. These studies (which included silly conclusions like, “the greatest dangers of cannabis abuse involve the pharmacological effects of the drug upon the central nervous system and other organs, rather than the development of dependence”) assumed a reputability that thankfully elicited a validity review by the American Journal of Psychiatry in 2004. The review did indeed confirm cannabis withdrawal syndrome to be ‘a thing’, with clinical importance warranting diagnostics. That same year, folks at Columbia confirmed this, adding that oral THC may be useful in alleviating cannabis withdrawal (oh really?) but called for future investigation into whether this could actually lead to long-term abstinence (oh really!).

The next six years saw a series of studies confirming withdrawal symptom significance. However, likely attributable to the prohibitive nature of cannabis, the subjectivity and ambiguity of the experimental models pose big questions: uncontrolled environments, heterogeneous subject pools (including tobacco users), and the subjectivity of patients’ desire for treatment (can quit attempts constitute treatment desire?) mute any weighty conclusions.

As cannabis research picks up and our understanding of addictive behavior evolves, attention is directed towards the effects of any evidenced dependency, elucidating whether or not the topic is worth our time. If we look Big Picture, a multitude of studies on dietic-related dependencies come to mind — in particular sugar, where excessive intake has indicated opioid withdrawal. Where do we draw the line between a substance’s addictive potential and excessive consumptive behavior? I posit that the answer lies in our understanding of addiction as opposed to substances (not limited to cannabis) that have historically shouldered the blame. I’ll let you decide.
1. Cannabis and Poor Sleep? Not Exactly

There has been some recent buzz surrounding a Stanford study that connected poor sleep to cannabis, when in actuality, that’s less than half the story. Addictive Behaviors published the findings that veterans were most successful at stopping cannabis consumption when they did not experience poor sleep. So real talk: cannabis-using veterans — with or without PTSD symptoms (the report actually gives heed to the “generalizability to non-veterans”) under a self-guided quit attempt (I’m curious about what qualifies here) — slept poorly during withdrawals (actually, note, this was ‘perceived sleep’, not efficiency/duration) so they decided to resume consumption. When kale does your body good, eat kale — analagous? Mull it over.
2. The Secret to Weight Management

Munchies shmunchies, the THC in cannabis smoke may have utility in treating obesity. In fact, it was the discovery of “the munchies” that led to the exploration of the endocannabinoid system, which has naturally led to identifying opportunities for targeted drug delivery. Did you know that over one-third of the US is obese? Conversely, this month an animal study was published that supports cannabis as a treatment for disordered eating, namely anorexia and bulimia; the report evidences a link between cerebral changes within the endocannabinoid system — of which cannabis directly influences — and weight gain. If the prevalence of fad dieting and bereft nutrition education is any indication of our cry for societal reform, we could be witnessing the beginning of a revolution. Invest as you see fit!

Note: The New York Times covered similar findings in May, introducing the concept of ‘The Marijuana Diet’.
3. A Treatment for Skin Cancer

An investigation on the anticancer activity of endocannabinoid anandamide (the human-produced THC) has been found to “induce cytotoxicity” (i.e., kill) melanoma cells. This characteristic of anandamide (AEA), commonly known as the human-produced THC, implicates the potential utility of cannabis as a skin cancer treatment. However, don’t rest easy supplementing your tanning with medication sessions as effects are concentration-dependent and best described as another targeted drug delivery opportunity.
4. Cannabis Dependency of Little Importance in Global Disease

The Global Burden of Disease Study of 2010 cleanly presents findings regarding the burden of drug dependence, measured by the years of life lived with disability (YLDs), years of life lost (YLLs), and disability-adjusted life years (DALYs, which is the sum of YLDs and YLLs). Results found cannabis dependence didn’t play into premature death (YLLs) but did contribute into disability (YLDs, and effectually, DALYs), although at a level 4-5 times less than opioids. The dependency potential of cannabis was also touched on: “although cannabis is by far the most commonly used illicit drug worldwide, the prevalence of cannabis dependence was lower than that for amphetamines and opioids.”
5. Cannabis Consumption isn’t Burdening Healthcare

Boston University sourced findings that further support cannabis’s minimal health burden, concluding no association between cannabis consumption and health, emergency department use, or hospital utilization. In other words, a cannabis consumer is no more likely to take a trip to the hospital than a person who doesn’t consume cannabis. Are you surprised?
