Cannabis research is intensely politicized, meaning, the inherent value of a plant which happens to have an entire system bodily system named after a compound it contains -- namely, the endocannabinoid system -- is distorted, repressed, or vehemently denied, even when its proper medical use would alleviate suffering in well over 120 health conditions....
In many ways, the criminalization of cannabis set a dangerous precedent for the future criminalization of all herbs -- and the practice of herbalism in particular, and natural healing modalities in general. Why should something that sprouts up from the ground naturally be considered so vile and dangerous that even holding it in your hand could, by federal law, be justification enough to imprison that person? Perhaps if we freely disseminate the peer-reviewed scientific research on its less known "angelic" qualities, its rampant demonization will not go unchecked.
