TABLE OF CONTENTS
OCTOBER 2015 THE HEALTH ISSUE ISSUE 09
"Herb is the healing of the nation, alcohol is the destruction"
-Robert Nesta Marley
Re-read the quote above. Read it one more time. Now speak it and learn it. It's easy to dismiss the words as those of cannabis induced psychosis perpetrated by a radical mind. It's a bit more difficult to recognize the unconcealed truth put across in no uncertain terms.
While the debate rages on as to whether cannabis has medicinal properties, alcohol consumption causes the loss of lives, physiques and cellphones. It destroys neighborhoods and relationships. It s a brutal substance.
Enter the Marijuana Maintenance Program.
The booze-blanket is thick, heavy and difficult to get out from under. The comfort it provides is legendary but its devastations are ignored. The proliferation of alcohol abuse across all social and economic classes has created institutional public health and safety issues for which the nation and our lawmakers cannot see through their beer goggles.
Domestic and sexual violence against women are inextricably linked to alcohol abuse but are chalked up to "boys being boys. At the highest levels of power, the daft ignorance expelled by people who compare alcohol and cannabis use is laughable. In the face of logic, empirical evidence, good taste and compassion, knuckleheads keep lumping cannabis enthusiasts and drunks together.
The anonymous world of those who no longer consume alcohol is not enlightened. There, sobriety does not maintain a rapport with cannabis. It's considered herba non grata. Lacking the courage to entertain the idea that cannabis can be used to rise above the influence of alcohol has no doubt kept far too many off the wagon. Spreading misinformation and disinformation regarding cannabis has been standard operating procedure by our public heath administrators for too long and "BS" is finally being called!
I'm no teetotaler. I owe no debt to the Temperance Movement. I'm not straight edge. I just know the truth. I know that cannabis can be used to treat nausea, anxiety, depression and panic attacks associated with alcohol withdrawal syndrome. I know that it can rewire the human brain and spirit to get up from the bar. get on with life and to pursue and realize success. I know it saves lives: that is a fact!
It's quite basic in it's premise yet takes tremendous will power and commitment to pursue. Stop drinking alcohol and start using cannabis, that's it! The choice to replace addiction to alcohol, opiates, cocaine or any other life ruining substance with cannabis initially may come off as counterintuitive-, that's just the years of D.A.R.E programing replaying in your now developed and rational mind.
There is no quick fix to professional or personal wreckages caused by alcohol abuse and learning to live again without booze is more terrifying than imaginable. The clarity in mind and health in body achieved by supplanting alcohol with cannabis can't be overlooked or understated. Goals become achievable and dreams can be a reality.
This methodology won't work for everyone. But then again, it might.
