Should Cannabis even be regulated?

12666256_10205543992134935_466576593_nAfter all, Cannabis is a god-given plant, put on this earth (I believe) for the benefit and healing of mankind.  Let me quote a passage here, since those who are against cannabis are also very religious and (pious):

Genesis 1:29  And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

I believe there is no moral basis for regulating a weed, a plant with beneficial properties.  In the rush to legalize Cannabis people seem to expect that it will be regulated and taxed like alcohol.  But I would assert that this plant should be treated as any other god-given herb is treated, not like alcohol, which is made from a plant, but distilled.  Let them regulate the concentrates made with weed, like alcohol is regulated.  But the plant itself, to be smoked, should not even be regulated, it’s like growing your own medicine in your garden at home.

Opponents of legalization of Cannabis like to classify weed on a par with hard-cord drugs like heroine and methamphetamine, but anyone who’s ever used Cannabis we know it’s nothing like those drugs.  It should be allowed to be grown by any free American in this country and utilized for medicinal purposes.  Stop the war on a plant that feeds the industrial prison complex.

goodtoknow_colorlogoWhen legalization is proposed in your state, demand the most freedom to possess and grow Cannabis without regulation.  In Colorado we have learned a few things about legalization.  Don’t make the tax too high like Colorado did for recreational cannabis, 27%.  This high of a tax is un-constitutional according to the TABOR (tax payer bill of rights) amendment, and the state of Colorado has had to put it to a vote in order to keep the excess revenue.  Don’t let your state do this to you.  Also, cities and municipalities are limiting the grow sizes and banning recreational altogether.  Don’t let them do this in your state, legalize fully and don’t follow the over-regulation that Colorado has done.  These Cannabis grows add to the economy (they use a lot of electricity when grown indoors) and don’t let them tell you otherwise.  So stay informed, and push for legalization at the state level.  Once we have 38 states, we can get a Federal constitutional amendment.  This is the future, and it is bright.  Legalization is on the minds of Americans like never before.  Take advantage of this opportunity.  Don’t vote republican, they have an anti-marijuana plank in their platform. Puff, Puff, Pass…
