  1. This guy is a clown who is busy making jokes while painting cannabis as a magic bullet- which it is not. While it certainly has legitimate therapeutic applications and further research will undoubtably uncover more, it is not a panacea for all that ails you and portraying it as such only serves to detract from it's proven uses. Perhaps no false claim is more egregious than holding it out as a substitute for opioids for chronic pain patients at a time when the medical system has declared war on them.

  2. People: What should be illegal? Cigarettes, alcohol or marijuana?

    Government: Tell us something about those three.

    People: Marijuana can be grown at home, while cigs and alcohol are made in a specific way.

    Government: Wait… That means people can buy the marijuana plant once and never pay again, but they have to pay for alcohol and cigs every time?

    People: Yes.

    Government: More money!– I mean… Marijuana is deadly! It needs to be illegal.

  3. Try KRATOM. it is a traditional herbal from South East Asia (Thailand, Vietnam ,Indonesia/Borneo. it can cure drug Addiction.

  4. Feels like the uk 50 year's behind every other country … are war on drugs is diabolical and outdated laws but the youth keep suffering and no Change Is Coming anytime soon

  5. It shouldn’t be legalized, but decriminalized. The difference is decriminalization would prevent big business from turning it into an industry. It should be left in the hands of the people and not industrialized!

  6. All he talks about is how great it is. He doesn't talk about how they are industrializing it. It's being turned into an industry. A handful of companies are going to make billions of dollars off of it. He talks about how it's been used for thousands of years as a medicine. What you get now is nothing like or even close to what they used. It has been changed to increase its potency. What was once a medicine will now be turned into a poison. As long as money can be made you are not important. Only money Above All.

  7. No talk of big pharma having the greatest influence over this being illegal and the lack of research on medical benefits and control over federal government policies laws are still way way too harsh

  8. Cannabis is already legal in Canada. We are behind some other countries in legalization, especially when considering the entrenched and corrupt nature of the pharmaceutical lobby in Congress.

  9. You forgot William Randolph Hearst's involvement in getting rid of hemp so that his vast timber holdings could be used for paper etc., instead of hemp. The Hearst media empire produced much of the anti-cannabis propaganda during this period.

  10. Good information, great talk. If 97% of Americans would like medical marijuana to be legal, why isn't it being put up to a VOTE across the board? Who is in charge? Isn't it the VOTERS? Or is it our elected officials we VOTE for? I am glad things are going better for his sister

  11. I live in Texas I'm facing a paraffiela charge that's $2,000 just for a pipe that I used to smoke out of when I went home to Washington.

  12. FIRE FIGHTERS…………………………….BIG SCAM…………95% ARE THE SONS OF FIRE FIGHTERS…………0 % QUIT OVER 25 YEARS, AND MAKE 90K PER YEAR. MOST PUT OUT ONE FIRE A YEAR. THEY WORK 2 DAYS A WEEK, GET MEALS PAID, FULL MEDICAL FOR THEMSELVES AND FAMILY. TELL ME ANOTHER JOB WHERE 0% QUIT ?

  13. Legalize it or don't I'm going to use it either way but it's incomprehensible that people are considered criminals for something the majority of us either do or have done

  14. CANNABIS IS SO POWERFUL BECAUSE OUR CANNABIS CREATES RECEPTORS IN ALL OF OUR ORGANS FROM HAIR TO TOES,
