One of the things I would love to do with our Respect Cannabis campaign is lawfully reach out to senior citizens to educate them about the many benefits of proper cannabis use (including much more precise strain selection and mild intake amplification).
As I stated in my last post, cannabis has a powerful impact on your body’s overall tuning. Granted I’m not going into CB2 receptors with relevance to arthritis here (that’s in the provided link above), and while such focus is obviously righteous, so too is the overall energetic tuning of your body.
I’m not being mystical here. The human body is all energy, according to mainstream physics (e.g. Einstein’s most famous equation), and cannabis obviously powerfully affects mentality, so consequently health (cannabis’ effects at least leverages the Placebo effect for healing upon proper use without actually being a placebo).
Without acknowledging that tuning, it’s basically impossible to truly understand why cannabis can be such a cure-all without being snake oil.
While I would be helping senior citizens live much better lives, they also constitute a serious (if not the most serious) voting block. Go ahead, young politician. Try to take away senior citizens’ drivers licenses to “protect the children”. I dare you.
Senior citizens can become a powerful ally in the ‘war’ on the war on some drugs (i.e. properly trashing the highly destructive and ineffective effort at ending drug abuse with sanctioned thuggery, and replacing that unbearable nightmare with effective education and stress management to increase public safety with civility).
That logically most responsible solution is also a major part of Stress Health’s Respect Cannabis campaign upon removing the terribly unhealthy obstacle demonstrably known as law abuse (“reefer madness” has factually been “law madness” from “reason madness” the entire time).
Anyone with stiff muscles understands the problematic nature of that stiffness. Being “set in your ways” even to an unreasonable degree is stiffness of the brain (which is actually a muscle).
Yes, too many senior citizens (like many other folks) have been misguided for decades to demonize cannabis as “dope”, and yes, cannabis abuse is a serious problem worth addressing for the overwhelming minority of people impacted by that abuse.
However, loosening the brain muscle (like an athlete staying loose for prime performance) allows us all to understand that Certain Drug Prohibition (if you will) has ruined way more lives than purportedly saving — we’re spending tens of billions of precious taxpayer dollars annually on a ‘no drugs’ policy that has not even led to a “drug free” prison system, folks.
The ‘bigger’ and ‘badder’ sequel to Alcohol Prohibition (which oddly required a constitutional amendment — oddly being true judicial mysticism unethically absent in the mainstream spotlight) needs to be replaced with the societal flexibility that only comes from liberty limited only by the right itself — our national obligation from the get-go and actual progressivism, American (though not pre-American) conservatism, and libertarianism united to oppose abuse (not use) — especially the abuse of law itself, as clearly and righteously indicated in the United States Declaration of Independence.
