We need more research - The last cannabis excuse exposed

The idea that we “need more research” when it comes to cannabis simply isn’t accurate. We have plenty of research on this plant, especially since we’ve been studying it for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Of course, modern medicine requires certain standards when it comes to research, however, even by modern standards we have enough research available to conclude on the safety of cannabis.

The “More Research” fallacy is nothing more than a stall tactic. For thousands of years, humans have been using cannabis for medical, spiritual, and recreational purposes. Throughout all this time, the general consensus is that cannabis is relatively benign and actually very beneficial for humans to consume.

Cannabis has young Israeli voters flocking to this right-winger

Call it a grass-roots movement.

Powered by his push to legalize cannabis, a politician edged out of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party because his views were too extreme may become the kingmaker in Israel’s next government.

Moshe Feiglin’s new Zehut party is riding support from younger voters to surge in polls, which now show it entering parliament after Israel’s April 9 elections. It’s not a single-issue party, but some supporters are secular leftists or regular stoners looking past Feiglin’s religious and nationalist zeal.
