Landing succeeded smoothly – always a great relief – and the beautiful semi-Polynesian hostesses had made the flight more than bearable.  Making my way through customs and quarantine was a breeze.  I was a low-risk Australian, apparently. Once through the maze of partitions, I was met by the Doctor’s apprentice and escorted to a waiting car. The drive avoided the metropolitan sprawl completely and we ascended from near sea-level farming land into wooded hinterland and then along winding mountain roads.  What could have been a very relaxing ride was actually more like a rally drive – being lurched around the cabin … Continue reading Arrival

Conversation with big pharma on cannabis

Originally posted on PRAGUE POT:
Cannabis is one of the most dangerous substances known to man. It is literally worth locking you in a cage with murderers and rapists just to protect you from this plant. Praguepot(PP): Sorry big pharma did you say something? Big pharma(BP): Don’t mind me, I am just mumbling to myself as I lovingly look over my profit and loss statements for 2014. Praguepot(PP): Good year for you? Big pharma(BP): In the drug business, it is always a good year! We have the perfect scam going, we give you medicine and then we give you more… Continue reading Conversation with big pharma on cannabis

Cannabis, cancer and big pharma

Originally posted on PRAGUE POT:
Scientific research carried out by the American government in 1975 showed the powerful cancer fighting ability of THC and other compounds within the plant.

We know that politicians have first and foremost, their own interests at heart, so if big… Continue reading Cannabis, cancer and big pharma

An Unpublished Comment

Here is the comment I submitted in response to the post I just reblogged linked to here (which was moderated out of existence by the owner of that blog, an individual I shall from now on refer to as ‘Precious’): Hi, In the nicest possible way, I disagree with almost everything in your post. However, I do agree whole-heartedly with your last paragraph, and the “stop pussy footing around” sentiment in the 2nd last para.

Begin Rant: In opposition to legalisation of marijuana for medicinal use

I do not agree with most of this post, but am reblogging linking to it because I made comment about it (in a rather civil manner), which I am about to publish, and that comment would therefore require context. Note: I had originally reblogged this post from the source, however, as further punishment for my dissenting view, the author there decided in their infinite wisdom to disallow that (I see that they have subsequently disabled their Reblog button.  Smart.).  However!, I am free to provide a link (! ha !), continue to assist them with their hit-count, and in this way provide the … Continue reading Begin Rant: In opposition to legalisation of marijuana for medicinal use
