Happy 4/20 and Happy Bicycle Day 4/19 @ 4:20

4:20 on 4.20.2017

We envision a future where cannabis and hemp have become a cornerstone of society. A future where hemp is a staple in diets, and cannabinoids are the source of medicines that are used to conquer some of the most debilitating diseases in the world. Hemp will be one of the most abundant crops in the world, from mass agriculture in the United States to community farming that sustains the developing world. Through cannabis, our people and our planet will achieve a healthier existence.
Dr. Stuart Titus,
Chief Executive Officer of Medical Marijuana, Inc

Alex Jones’ custody battle during his divorce touched on his drug habits. Jones had this to say about marijuana: During his testimony, Jones claimed that he smoked marijuana once a year to “monitor its strength,” and he claimed that it’s gotten progressively stronger over the years — and he thinks that George Soros is somehow involved.[…]

On Saturday, Nantachai was among a couple dozen vendors comprising Thailand’s infant cannabis industry at Thailand 420, where one could almost get a contact high from optimism that, although there is a long way to go, a weed renaissance is underway and decriminalization is more than a pipe dream.

“Last year, we had 200 police come,” said Rattapon “Guide” Sanrak, founder of advocacy group and festival organizer Highland. “This year? Four.”

It may seem paradoxical, but Rattapon sees progress under the military regime. Last year, there was the former justice minister and junta member declaring the War on Drugs a failure.

This year, he says officials have been receptive to their outreach and education campaign, and legislation is in the works to allow hemp to be grown for industrial purposes in the northern provinces of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Nan, Tak, Phetchabun and Mae Hong Son.

Bicycle Day, April 19 honors Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann's discovery of LSD 74 years ago. When he rode his bicycle home while taking the world's first trip.

aqueous solution of d-lysergic acid diethylamide tartrate.
