U.N. Reclassifies Cannabis as a Less Dangerous Drug

[Soft Paywall]So there it is guys….it took us over 50+ years, only a few million people locked up for non violent crimes whilst white people have made millions in profit from slavery, criminalising medical patients and generally making our lives shit whilst pedos, rapists and murderers get away with using “human rights” to avoid facing consequences for their actions.Our time has come, send this to your local MP who thinks the devil’s lettuce makes you want to “have relations with n*gro women and listen to satanic jazz music”Send this to your neighbour who wants to lecture you about gateway drugs despite being from the era of LSD and psychedelics.Send this to every single person who has tried to make you feel bad for seeking medicine, enjoying some downtime with a PLANT whilst others destroy their livers with actual poison and cariogenics.If I sound emotional, it’s cause I am – although us UK ents have had it easier than some when it comes to personal smoke we are still a far way away from the utopia we need and the mental strain that has come with the connotation that I could end up in jail or lose my house for smoking a plant that is not even available on the NHS despite it being legal because the doctors have their hands tied behind their backs has been literally eating away at me. Despite being a medical smoker for 6+ years and never once being reprimanded (cause I’ve genuinely never been a problem) sneaking around, meeting dealers and feeling like an outlaw has taken a toll on me. Even my own parents have had a go at me and it’s taken A LOT of talking to show them the other side.Summary:A United Nations commission voted on Wednesday to remove cannabis for medicinal purposes from a category of the world’s most dangerous drugs, a highly anticipated and long-delayed decision that could clear the way for an expansion of marijuana research and medical use.Experts say that the vote will have no immediate impact on loosening international controls because governments will still have jurisdiction over how to classify cannabis. But many countries look to global conventions for guidance, and United Nations recognition is a symbolic win for advocates of drug policy change who say that international law is out of date. via /r/uktrees https://ift.tt/33DldYa
