420 so much cannabis propaganda..

So, as there is so much in the news recently about the “dangers” of cannabis, I thought I’d provide a list of links to various studies of the herb and it’s potential medicinal use.

IMG_8895

Before I do, we must remember that cannabis has been deemed by the government to have “No medicinal value”. However, GW Pharmaceuticals have already been using cannabis based Sativex to successfully relieve muscle spasticity in MS patients. Their trial of Epidiolex in epilepsy patients is already showing promising results in patients who do not respond to the range of available prescription drugs.

“No medicinal value” my arse.

Please take your time to work your way through this extensive, but not exhaustive, list.. Within you will find evidence of CBD induced apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells (healthy cells left in tact) as well as many other medicinal uses for this wonderful herb.

I’m not a smoker (or a toker) I don’t use cannabis, but I sure as heck won’t rule it out once it becomes a mainstream medicine.

So, hell huh?

I’ve lost count of the number of times a theist has scolded me, telling me I’m going to hell for my lack of belief. They just don’t understand when, not only am I not worried, I actually pity them, and then I laugh.

2015/01/img_8026.jpg

Hell has no location other than in your head. It’s not somewhere you go, rather it’s somewhere from which you can’t escape. If I do something wrong I have to live with that forever; the niggling thought in the back of my head, the knot in my stomach, the guilty flush on my cheeks every time I remember my misdeed, and that is enough to keep me on the straight and narrow.

2015/01/img_8168.png

That’s hell. That right there. I don’t need a fiery pit, my conscience is worse. I don’t need satan, I punish my self enough. And I don’t need the promise of another life in order to live this one well.

Answering a Child’s Question

Wonderful blog post!

Secular Chaplain

Former Street Child Asks the Pope Why God Lets Children Suffer

I admire much of what the Catholic Papa tells his faithful.  I think his best response to this girl’s question was to hug her.  A very pastoral (and basically human) thing to do.  He also  responded, quite honestly I think, :

“She is the only one who has put a question for which there is no answer and she wasn’t even able to express it in words but in tears,”

Respectfully, I would offer another response to this girl’s honest and heartfelt question:

After a hug, of course. . .

1)  Children suffer because communities do not work together with commitment to end the suffering

2)  Children suffer because governments expend so much more money on power, wealth and the military that there is little left for helping poorer citizens

3)  Children suffer because religious institutions (especially…

Brother Noah built the ark

Hmm..

2015/01/img_8436.jpg

Uh-huh..?

2015/01/img_7979.jpg

Cool story, Bro…

2015/01/img_7965.jpg

Well isn’t that nice!

2015/01/img_7790.jpg

Let me guess, another miracle?

2015/01/img_8271.jpg

A 950 year old man.
An incestuous family (again).
Who scoured the earth for two of every species of ant? Beetle? Worm? Butterfly? Bird?
How did they transport these animals back to the ark site?
What happened to the plant life?
How are their black people if Noah’s family were white?
How did the kangaroos get back to Australia without leaving a single trace of their passing?
What about all the poop?
What did Noah’s family eat?
What did all the animals eat? Herbivores, carnivores, omnivores?

And the rainbow thing.. Really?

2015/01/img_8460.jpg

Religion. Are you really that stupid?

Think Big. Think Dead.

And this gets ‘post of the day’ in my book! Awesome!

Sandy Journalized

Dead. Adjective: no longer alive.

Death. Noun: the action or act of dying or being killed; the end of life for a person or organism.

The other day Hubby and I were talking death. Not really even sure how we got on the topic actually. I probably threatened his life again over something like if he snorted or grunted one more time…(This guy is a noise factory). So being the sarcastic one I can be, I asked him how he’d like to go out and I’d consider his wishes. Haha! At least I’m willing to listen to the wish list.

So after we goofed around a bit he asked ‘what about you?’  Ba-Zinga! I explained (more like a rant) about refusing to spend money with my death. Silly hubby then asked ‘what do you mean?’

I’m not a believer or a belieber. (Haha sorry couldn’t resist)…
