The cannabis gods tested our will to endure tsuris that would have shaken Winston “one damned thing after another” Churchill to the core. Did we ace these tests? Well, we got the answers right, only we exceeded the time limit — by six months. Whoops!
Approached as a groundbreaking documentary which proves that cannabis cures cancer — the word “if” appears in the title, not the content — What If Cannabis Cured Cancer falls short of the mark. That said, the DVD presents the science behind THC’s potential to treat “modern diseases” in convincing fashion.
In a nation crying for new industry, with budget shortfalls impacting every level of government, cannabis commerce is a shining star hovering on the economic horizon. Cannatax generated from cannabis commerce could provide a lifeline for embattled governments desperate to maintain vital services in the face of rising costs. Problem is, people think only PhDs can grok it. Think again.
KushCon2 offered those active in the legal global marijuana industries a place to meet, collaborate, learn, and grow their new-economy enterprises. In one convention hall, in one weekend, mingled 10,000s of cannabis entrepreneurs and their stakeholders — nurturing $ billions in new GREEN, taxable economic opportunity for America — and their truly Green Revolution is just taking off.
Besides deploying an army of lobbyists to sabotage any and all efforts to reschedule cannabis as a Schedule One drug, Big Pharma also excels at a practice the medical marijuana industry might actually want to adopt — it dispenses its often lethal and always popular concoctions in uniform doses.

Ten Reasons Why MMJ Is Cannabis Commerce’s Ball and Chain: [Bonus] Reason 12 — It Keeps the DEA in Business
Americans for Safe Access actually expects DEA special agents to stand down. Right. Like those rough-and-ready dudes are going to get into the spirit of cooperation with ASA, playing ping-pong, working on Sudoku puzzles, and painting Tibetan sand mandalas instead of seizing and eradicating?

You may have noticed that this site has been experiencing various “irregularities.” Think “open the pod bay door, HAL.” Our computer systems have displayed signs of … confusion.

Whatever valid points Kevin Booth’s pot doc makes about the ongoing persecution of our most maligned weed are buried under easily the most disjointed direction and editing I’ve seen in a commercial DVD. The entire video seems to suffer from ADHD. Drenched in fundamentalist intensity, you won’t hear much from prohibition proponents.
