I see from my dictionary that ‘Phobia’ is an ‘intense & unreasonable fear (or dislike)’.. methinks this sums up the current reasons for cannabis prohibition, here in Aotearoa/NZ
Whilst the fear of ‘Marijuana’.. the ‘Killer Weed, with its roots in HELL’, the ‘Assassin of Youth’ & ‘Reefer Madness’ may have set this trend, I think there is definitely another ‘Cannaphobia’ now : ‘FEAR of the real TRUTH, about Cannabis’ & acceptance that the War on Drugs was mostly based on Lies & Misinformation !
I heard a comment recently that most of the western world, are recognising that its looking increasingly, like the end of communism & the fall of the Berlin Wall.. here in Aotearoa/NZ the politicians just seem unable or unwilling to even look at it critically !!
** just looking for any/all reasons to maintain the status quo.. even if it is harming the society as a whole..
