Natural Rights Revolution

Government will have to learn the hard way that if they want to reduce illegal diversion to the black market in the marijuana industry, they have to reduce taxes per gram to the level of a specialty agricultural crop (like heirloom vegetables), not a high-priced, artificially rare commodity like laboratory-produced medications or diamonds. They’ll do it wrong at first, because …

VA Directive 1315

Although we are happy the government is allowing doctors 1st Amendment rights to speak with patients, it seems a bit like false magnanimity. They shouldn’t been infringed in the first place. Doctors should be allowed to speak with patients about any and every therapy known to humankind. Unfortunately doctors in America are a bit more like high priests of the …

Terrorism

Terrorism will never destroy America. There’s not a terrorist attack that can ever destroy the nation. Not possible. Anyone who claims otherwise is dreaming. Terrorism is not an existential threat, a threat to our existence. It cannot threaten our national security in that sense, but it is a danger to our citizens and our country for other reasons. We are …

Warriors in the Garden

We warriors of peace follow in the footsteps of the ancient masters who learned to fight so well they renounced it forever. We will hammer our own swords into plowshares, healing ourselves and the world while we’re at it. War has broken both us and our society, and veterans are the cracks in its very fabric. We are isolated, ostracized, …

America Needs Access

ALL AMERICANS who need cannabis should have access to it, NOT JUST VETERANS. While 22+ a day die from suicide in the veteran population, over 121 commit suicide every day in the civilian population. As veterans, we know we are the public face of PTSD, but we are fighting for ALL Americans’ access to this and EVERY sacred plant of …

SHINE

Sometimes when you feel like dying, you still put on the face and pretend everything is fine. You hate the world, and hate yourself for hating the world. The whole process of medical intervention and self-medication is done to eliminate the horrible thoughts within. It doesn’t work, though. The only thing I have found reliably to work is finding purpose …

Natural Rights

“Locke argued that individuals should be free to make choices about how to conduct their own lives as long as they do not interfere with the liberty of others. Locke therefore believed liberty should be far-reaching. By “property,” Locke meant more than land and goods that could be sold, given away, or even confiscated by the government under certain circumstances. …

Prohibition

In December of 1840, Abraham Lincoln said this: “Prohibition… goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control man’s appetite through legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not even crimes… A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our Government was founded.” Our government found that out very quickly …

Sept 19, 2016

My mission since I left the military and traditional pharmaceutical medicine behind has been to investigate other therapies for healing trauma. Despite the stigma, I have long been an advocate of cannabis, it helped me give up the grueling pharmaceutical regimen that almost broke my body, and even more than that, my spirit. I’ve been fortunate enough in my life …
