Time 4 Alternative Cannabis Choices

Back in April I wrote an editorial titled Time 4 Alternative Cannabis Choices but at that time it had to do with Owen Smith’s victory before Canada’s Supreme Court. It was a victory that allowed patients the right to have alternatives to just smoking their medication, which was something that the government was pretty well forcing upon sick and dying Canadians.

Unmask Cannabis Freedom!

In the recent issues of Joint Conversations we have touched on global marijuana reform. In this issue we cover the Canadian federal election and the cannabis issue in Canada. During our election all but one federal party supported some form of cannabis law reform which included both decimalization and legalization. The Green party as well as the Liberals supported a form of cannabis taxation and regulation while the NDP wanted to start off with decimalization while studying its legalization. The Conservative party was the only ones that supported continuing the failed policy known as cannabis prohibition.

The Magic Of Hemp Oil

Hemp fuel is one of the many solutions facing the problems of the Earth. At a recent climate conference held in Europe, world leaders pledged to end the use of fossil fuels by the year 2100. What they didn’t say was how they plan to do it and we know we can’t go at full steam and then stop everything at once in the year 2100. Many people don’t realize that fossil fuels give us more than just gasoline and oil. They give us everything from clothing to even the plastics to create the capsules that we take our medication with. It really is everywhere. One big option that many believe should be looked at is of course hemp, the sister plant to cannabis.

It’s Fun To Grow!

What’s a statue doing on the front cover of a cannabis publication? Y es I agree it seems odd until you know the history behind it, especially if its cannabis related. This statue was erected for Louis Pasteur who was a French chemist and microbiologist. He is best known to the general public for a process named after him for treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process we know as pasteurization. What’s pasteurization and Louis have to do with cannabis and can this process even be used with cannabis? Was Louis a cannabis consumer?

End Hemp Prohibition!

While cannabis legalization for recreational and medical use continues to happen in the USA, its citizens have found that they can purchase many alternatives from baked goods, drinks to concentrates. Meanwhile here in Canada an approved medical user can only smoke, vaporize or use it in food but only in its natural state, plant material. We are not allowed to legally change it through any processing method so
it’s whole plant material or nothing.

Cannabis is our LUCKY LEAF!

In my last editorial about cannabis social use, I touched on the benefits that cannabis can bring to our health care dollars. This was done with a report that I used as my Editorial Pick where it showed that the top healthiest cities in the USA have medical cannabis laws within their state. Meanwhile the unhealthiest ones have no medical cannabis program at all. This month I’ve chosen an article called “A Sociological Analysis of Cannabis Legalization in Canada” which touches on the effects of cannabis prohibition here in Canada but could be used to reflect any society not just Canada’s.

What makes Santa fly?

As a medical marijuana patient I have found that during my daily running around – there isn’t always a good vapor lounge for me to medicate in. There was a time when I could go to a local quiet park and take a stroll through it but even that is getting harder as the banning of smoking in local parks has set in.

Doctors love cannabis!

Legally prescribed cannabis is a point of contention between global corporations and governments and their employees. Our cover photo this month shows a very upset Cpl. Ron Francis. He is a 22 year veteran of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and is returning his Red Serge to the local office. Why? Because he used his legally prescribed cannabis while wearing it.
