      Legalisation vs Un-prohibited
      Driving vs Walking.
      One you can do with a licence, under certain conditions, if you can afford to jump through all the hoops. One you can do freely, restricted only by your own ability to do it.
      I fear legalisation only puts our beloved plant in the hands of the real criminals and cartels.. If we look to how the U.S. is using licence fees to fund harder crackdowns on homegrowers even forcing medical users to buy their medicine not grow it.
      We could just be sensible. It is a plant. Other, far more dangerous plants are not "illegal", mostly not even prohibited. Even highly toxic plants that would kill you if ingested even once - Unprohibited - grow them all in your garden. Why cant we just be sensible and move Cannabis into the same catagory as all other non-prohibited plants where it belongs. (?) It would be so easy to just say "From now on we're going to treat cannabis as we do with nettles, roses, deadly nghtshade, fox gloves, daffodils etc etc. Because thats what it is".



      "Have you got time for a story?.. Decades ago, growers escaped to the hills and mountains to be free of the capitalist b.s and government fuckery to live a peaceful life enjoying this plant. Over time, Cannabis became its own master signifier within these communities - it was used as a currency, surpassing cash, as the highest grade weed was not worth selling for money as you would not be able to buy something of the same quality. Instead it was only really worth trading it for other very high grade weed and so it becomes the master signifer. Ppl also start trading it in lew of cash for goods and services. Sick people discover that it is curing their chronic illness and even saving their lives and healing terminal conditions, which no ammount of money or gold could do, so, for them, it becomes as valuable as life itself...
      But, from a distance the monster watches. None of this sits well with the capitalist monster that they ran to the hills to escape from. It cant allow its one source of power, the master signifier of its game - money - to be superceeded or the game falls apart. How can they get weed back under the control of their designed master signifier and into the capitalist meat-grinder to feast on??.. "What about making it legal? That could work!. licences, branding, marketing, thats our stuff! ...we'll tell them they can be rich!! yes, we'll tell them they need us and our game,. give them shinies, they'll be too distracted by their own reflections..."
      Now, you have the decendants of those same communities coming screaming down the mountain, cannibalizing their neighbours, as they whore their familes treasures for a small enough slice of the pie to get themselves a mortgage and some debt in the capitalist system of bondage their ancestors ran to get away from...

      The End. "

          there will always be those that operate outside of societies expected rules; most of us do already in one manner or another. black market will disappear only when it is truly legal, and there is no profit to be made by selling it. taxes ensure that there will always be a profit to be had. grow on!

              The glass is 1/2 full! As long as we are allowed to grow our own, unencumbered, isn't that what it is all about?
