The stupid cruelty of cannabis laws
Punishing the users of medicine
For the overwhelming majority of human history, the simple cannabis plant has been a source of food and medicine.
Only 20th and now early 21st century America feels that that it’s so “dangerous” it has to be controlled and people have to be severely punished for possessing it.
This would be a joke were the consequences not so tragic.
Prison is supposed to be for violent and dangerous people. Not sick people who seek and discover non-pharmaceutical treatments for serious diseases.
This is as ignorant and pointlessly cruel set of laws as any people have ever created and enforced in all human history.
