My letter to the NZ Health Minister and associates. I’ll probably get around to writing a song on this.
I urge you please to consider the use of medicinal cannabis (CBD), if not the legalization of cannabis altogether.
The potential benefits of CBD are becoming clearer as the dark ages of prohibition slowly lift.
For example: the formal study Cannabidiol as a Potential Treatment for Anxiety Disorders which concluded that “evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders, with need for further study of chronic and therapeutic effects.”
“Did you see that NZs MoH have moved to make our legal cannabis crop (ihemp/cannabis sativa) illegal for therapeutic purposes? Shameless”
If that’s true, then we are going backwards and wilfully ignoring a natural medicine that could help many people and is being rapidly adopted in other countries. Before prohibition, cannabis was an approved and prescribed medicine. Unfortunately, since prohibition (largely political) cannabis has been demonised and ignored.
