“Do you really want to be told what you can do and can’t do to your body, in the privacy of your own home?”
Back after a long hiatus. Scheduling problems, money issues, if it was a problem trying to stop us from doing a podcast, you can bet it happened. So after a long time of waiting for things to work themselves out, I finally found a co host worthy of trying to fill the shoes. I’d like to welcome Ian Baker of Glacier health to the show. He’s going to be hosting with me until he gets sick of it, we all get arrested, or pot finally gets legalized. We’ll try to stick to doing an episode every Saturday, but you probably want to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get real time updates. If you want to download a copy of the 55 page PDF that Ian Baker put together, that can be found RIGHT HERE, and also HERE on the Hot Box forums. Please pass this along to any and all of your friends. There is some amazing information in those pages.
And now, I present to you, an article about why education is a very necessary tool in the war on cannabis prohibition, as written by our resident pro cannabis blogger, Denton Ramsey. Happy reading!
Advocates vs. Adversaries: Education Remains Vital as Cannabis Crusade Continues
By Denton Ramsey, NORML of Waco Inc. Director of Volunteers
When it comes to advocates against adversaries of this often-debated medicinal plant, two words remain vital in this ongoing fight: cannabis education. Most of the time, albeit sad yet true, adversaries of marijuana are plain and simply uneducated about the plant. A majority of what adversaries of cannabis turn to in arguing against legalization revolves around health, FDA-approval, and safety for children. Unfortunately, mass media outlets hurt the cannabis cause as well.
