Cannabis prohibition is a policy propped up by lies. If our government were honest, cannabis would be legal.
There’s a picture of me and a few of my Shambhala coworkers in this month’s issue of Culture, so that’s fun. In other, much more horrible news, the feds have demanded that Shambhala down in about a month, or else. So that really sucks.
It sounds like threatening letters were probably sent to most or all of the 12 dispensaries mentioned in this Examiner article from last month, as well as a number of dispensaries elsewhere in California.
I’m pretty sure they’re using legal threats against landlords to shut down as many dispensaries as possible in order to pave the way for pharmaceutical companies to release cannabis-derived drugs without competition from the existing medical cannabis industry. They are doing it quietly and gradually to avoid triggering a backlash, but I fucking hope there’s a backlash because this is seriously bullshit.
I have always found it easy to believe that cannabis is the key to curing cancer. It strikes me as so typically human that we would arbitrarily demonize and criminalize what is possibly the most beneficial and benign plant on earth. To me, society’s hysterically irrational treatment of cannabis serves as proof that it is the solution to many of our most unsolvable problems. Because of course society would reject the thing it needs most. Fucking society.
