      The pharmaceutical industry owns the monopoly on the treatment of cancer, so obviously knowing that weed can be grown and commercialized by people without any intermediaries that doesn’t benefit the pharmaceutical companies, that’s the quintessential reason why weed is illegal, not because it has adverse effects or is susceptibly detrimental to the body, but because they can’t monopolize marijuana.

    In the same way that Barbados led the world in sugar breeding and refining, Barbados could lead the world in the production of cannabis oils for the treatment of cancers. It’s way past time that cannabis and hemp were decriminalized.

    Peter A. Reece don’t you think it’s a possibility that people in possession herbaceous paraphernalia wouldn’t also concurrently own an illicitly owned firearm?, and would also shoot back at them, hypothetically?.

    If you think Praedial larceny is bad now wait till the all out war when Marijuana all bout the place legally but being stolen (illegally)…….not just as simple as legalise. We need a better organized legal system that actually works efficiently and effectively before jumping on that boat.
