Look into why illegal drugs are illegal. It had absolutely nothing to do with whether cannabis, or opium, or cocaine was healthy, or not. It was all about mexicans, asians, and afro-americans. The drug war started as a way to "protect young innocent white women from being corrupted by the dirty _____" (fill in the blank with the drug/race combo of your choice). Looking at today's drug related prison statistics (in the US anyway) it may still be all about that.Originally Posted by brendo
Also, if you think that alcohol is better for you to imbibe than cannabis, I have some interesting info for you. Alcohol is a poison, your body actively works to remove alcohol from your system. You drink too much, and you die. Cannabis has no overdose amount. Your body does not try to remove the cannabinoids from itself. It does use the chemicals, and process them, but does not try to metabolize the chemicals just to remove them, unlike alcohol. In all the history of the world, no one has ever died of cannabis consumption, can you say the same about alcohol?
It bears saying over and over, the drug war is not about your health, or safety. It started and continues because of racial issues and money.
