    Canada Now Has Psilocybin Dispensaries!

    The Vancouver Police gave us a boilerplate assurance that they know what’s happening and promised they were looking into it. “We are currently assessing the business to determine if any criminal offenses have been committed,” VPD Media Relations Officer Sgt. Jason Robillard said. Interpreted... "At the behest of pharmaceutical industry lobbyists, administration has been instructed to prepare a legally watertight strategy to shut this down." “I am not aware of any enforcement action taken at this point.” Interpreted... "At this point in time, administration has not received instructions from the pharmaceutical industry to shut this down." To be fair, I haven't looked into the Canadian political atmosphere regarding this, so maybe I'm being a little too cynical.

    https://www.msn.com/en-au/money/company-news/how-rich-lister-barry-lambert-became-a-cannabis-mogul-in-a-bid-to-save-his-granddaughter/ar-AAGeixG?li=AAgfOd8&ocid=mailsignout Whilst I consider the title to be somewhat a juxtaposition, seeing "rich-lister" and "mogul" in the same sentence as "Cannabis", the article still adds momentum to this train. I just can't help imagining the journo's first "ASX listing" as a scene from "The Hunger Games". In no way do I wish to denigrate his motivation, his grand-daughter's condition, nor his family's suffering; these things don't just happen to the under-privileged. Perhaps Mr. Lambert will find enough gratitude in the power of his bank account to add support to the many folk who have pushed this agenda, not because they were personally suffering, but because someone else was. And not because they stand to make a shit-load of coloured paper out of it. Then again, perhaps I'm being too critical. Hell, the more I learn about our society and culture through psychology, sociology, anthropology, politics, global economics and media, and indeed my own experiences in the medical world, the greater the difficulty of not judging from my own pedestal. I did find it interesting that Mr. Lambert's son blames himself for his daughter's Dravet Syndrome because of his alcohol use...

    Because the folks who put him there, want him there. They'll keep him as long as he's useful to them, then he'll fall by the wayside in the gold plated world of the Sunny Dreams Retirement Village for Politicians... you know, that one where they're paid to reside rather than having to pay. (I may be wrong about that last bit, seeing as they mostly seem to need to take high paying jobs at one multi-national corporation or another.... no wait... sorry, it appears they can have both). Meanwhile, here's another positive bit of news about the plant of many miracles: https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/cannabis-chemical-pancreatic-cancer-flavonoid-treatment-a9073606.html

    New Zealand Skeletons in the Cupboard The Redheads

    Shoulda looked a bit harder before posting the first vid. "Cousins Across The Sea" is the first installment, "Under The Carpet", the third. Yeah, T.I., circumstantial for sure (except for the DNA evidence), unless you factor in the oral histories and cosmologies of the places they connect in the docos. There is apparently a connection between N.Z. and The Orkney Isles, in particular, Skara Brae, with studies of Maori Cosmology showing how Maori myths, symbols, cosmological concepts, and words reflect symbolic elements found at Göbekli Tepe in Turkey and demonstrates parallels between the Maori cosmological tradition and those of ancient Egypt, China, India, Scotland, and the Dogon of Mali in Africa (Laird Scranton's series of books on comparative cosmology)

    CBD oil?

    So here's a little info if anyone wants to try the route of getting a prescription for MedCan. There's a Canadian company set up in Melbourne who handle everything about your application. (www.tetrahealth.com.au). Your G.P. gets in touch with them and they will guide the G.P. through the process (they have greatly simplified the things the docs have to do), then they take care of all the bullshit dealing with TGA and other regulators, submitting applications and the required letters. Up front cost is $350.00, which is pretty good considering the first couple of patients I was involved with forked out between $1500.00 and $2000.00 before they got a yes or no. Average cost of oils works out to around $150.00 per month, depending on what you're using and there are a number of pharmacies around Oz (and the number is growing quite quickly) who are set up to fill the prescriptions. Tetra Health can advise you of your closest one, and the pharmacies are permitted to post the oil. Myself and the G.P. I've been working closely with over the last 10 years are now seeing a turn around time anywhere between 48 hours and 2 weeks from application to approval. There are a lot of G.P.s who are not interested in having anything to do with Cannabis prescription, but there are a growing number who are, and some of them are consulting all over Oz via Skype. If anyone would like more info, have a squiz at their website, have a chat with your G.P. and if you think I can help further in any way, please PM me. Peace and Love. Insy.

    CBD oil?

    Noted your post was quite a while ago now, but if you're still looking, give The Hemp Embassy in Nimbin a call ((02) 6689 1842 they have an answering service and it's "dial 1 for medicinal Cannabis). This'll put you through to the volunteers who run the show. They have a range of oils available, produced by an industrial chemist. I've used them for the last 5 years, helping patients with conditions from cancer to pain management. They deliver via post as well.

    In light of poetry

    GARDEN OF EDEN I stood before the doorway To a thousand different worlds Some in darkness, some in light I saw the shape of my reflection But it was shaded by the night All the wise words rise inside me All good intentions wax and wane The evil and the saintly Are all standing hand in hand Next to the modest and the vain Now I'm a hostage to my visions That parlay in my mind In a gamble for my soul My heart exposed for everyone to see Along with every thought I stole All the martyrs still have work to do Saving souls of all the dying All the heathens, all the pagans Are at one with Mother Earth 'Cause it's a story they're not buying The dogs of war lay sleeping In the shade of our demise Yesterday they fought for truth Today they place a price on every life Then exact it from our youth Greed and envy send their tendrils out Feeding off our every breath All the forests, all the oceans Are giving up their life Fading, and leaving only death Our grip on life is slipping And we recognize our fate We see darkness cloud our eyes In ignorance, we've cracked Pandora's Box While Prometheus kneals and cries Finally our echo starts to fade Returning to the earth Leaving stillness, leaving silence To remind us who we were And everything we're worth.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/06/20/france-urged-government-experts-legalise-cannabis-take-back/ --- In their report released on Thursday entitled “Cannabis: how to take back control”, the two CEA-mandated economists wrote: “The system of prohibition promised by France for the past 50 years has been a failure. ”State-controlled cannabis stores would be the best way to control drug trafficking and “restrict access” to younger would-be users, they argued. "By their calculations, cannabis could bring up to €2.8 billion (£2.5bn) per year into state coffers and create up to 57,000 jobs."--- So really, it's about the $$. Are we heading in the right direction for the wrong reasons. And if we are, what will be the consequences?
