When Does Technological Advancement Actually Lead to Prosperity?

When is a society prosperous? The general understanding seems to be it’s when everyone has an abundance of goods. But is this a useful definition? Are you prosperous if you have an abundance of goods, but no time to enjoy them? Are you prosperous if you have an abundance of goods, but you’re sick? Are you prosperous if you have an abundance of goods, but you live in an oppressive society? Are you prosperous if you have an abundance of goods but are desperately unhappy and feel you’ve wasted your life?

Cannabis Oil Cures 3 Year Old Boy Of Cancer After Doctors Gave Him 48 Hours To Live

A young boy named Landon Riddle was diagnosed with Leukemia, and was told by his doctors that he only had an 8-10% chance of living for more than a day or two. “His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn’t breathe. They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn’t going to make it,” his mother, Sierra Riddle said.

After two months of Chemotherapy, Landon became sick and would refuse to eat. According to his mother, he would vomit up to 50 times a day, and the doctors eventually lost hope, seeing no other solution than Chemotherapy.
Then one day, Landon’s grandmother suggested that they look into cannabis oil treatment.

US Teenagers are Killed More by Prescription Meds than Prohibited Drugs: Study

A revealing new study published in the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing, has shown that the number of deaths suffered annually by American teenagers at the hands of illegal drugs is far, far less than those suffered from prescription medication.

2.6 Billion Pounds Of Monsanto’s Roundup Sprayed On US Farmland In 20 Years

The Environmental Protection agency of California has just made moves to label Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, or Glyphosate, as a ‘probably carcinogenic to humans.’ It’s linked to cancer and heavily contaminates the soil, yet there is no sign that farmers will stop using this poison any time soon. In fact, over the last couple of decades, this chemical has seen an astonishing surge in use in the United States and across the world.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), in the US alone in the years between 1992 and 2012, over 2.6 billion pounds of Roundup herbicide have been dumped onto America’s farmland and food supply. With the rise in GMO seed such as BT Corn and ‘Roundup Ready’ soy beans, glyphosate is becoming something farmers simply cannot avoid even if they wanted to.

If John Keys Lips are Moving he is Lying

John Key on government law making regarding cannabis: "We work on an evidence and science-based approach and ... if someone wants to bring up a particular case for use to the minister's office in good faith he will look at it."

Bullshit John. You and your corrupt minions make your decisions based on how much money you and your corporate/and or bankster criminal buddies can funnel out of the hands of the ordinary man and into the hands of the wealthy. Not what is best for the public interest.

You do not give a shit about about sick and dying people. There is a plethora of studies showing huge promise with medicinal cannabis. You and your ministers like that corrupt clown Peter Dunne are wilfully ignoring the science that is out there. You are liars.

Why a Man Who Fought the Drug War for 30 Years Is Now Spearheading Project to Stop It

When it comes to the War on Drugs, there are few people in a better position to comment on the futility, brutality and tragedy of the endeavor than retired Major Neill Franklin. He spent over 30 years participating in, and directing, state and local police anti-drug efforts before retiring to become the executive director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), which advocates for the legalization of drugs and a law enforcement approach that defends human rights and views drug misusers as persons in need of treatment as opposed to punishment.

The researchers, Dr Nikolaos Antonakakis and Professor Alan Collins, are urging policy makers to put European citizens' health before wealth as a matter of urgency.

Pharma Giant Funded their Own Study Claiming Drug Was Safe for Kids — It was Actually Deadly

Under current U.S. law, pharmaceutical companies are required to only market and advertise their drugs for FDA approved conditions.

Big pharma heavy-hitter GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) illegally influenced doctors to prescribe the antidepressant drug paroxetine (sold under the brand name Paxil) to teenagers and kids for years even though it was not FDA approved for use in adolescents.

Not to be discouraged by pesky laws, GSK began a focused marketing blitz aimed at doctors, which was a huge success with over 2 million Paxil prescriptions being written for kids in 2002 alone.
