      This war needs stopped. It was a war that was started and controlled by our government as a means to make huge profits for big corporations back in the early 1900's, such as law enforcement, the prison industry, and big pharma. And the brainwashing and rhetoric that went along with it is too amazing. So glad people are waking up. It needs to be legalized across all 50 states and globally. It has so many numerous benefits with no side effects. The studies are all there, including the need to stop the drug testing in work places as well, as that was just another way to control and deny the majority of people that has been absolutely proven to be a waste of time, money and resources. Absolutely shameful on those in power!

      The evidence is staggering and speaks(almost) entirely for itself. Unfortunately it hasn't been permitted to speak for itself which is why we all need to be involved. Safe medication for those suffering? Sounds like a no-brainer to me.

      It's safer than Tylenol, but banned because of decades-old propaganda. Let's let sick people get a safe, natural medication in a legal way.
