Banning Extreme Sports ??

Following the same logic that rigidly ban  psychedelic drugs  for their possible advert effects, governments should coherently ban also risky extreme sports like skydiving, bunjee jumping,mountaineering or even horseriding.
So thhe good people at Psychedelic Society have thought to send a petition to the English minister of sport, asking for more stringent and severe measures against dangerous sports....
Obviously is a satirical initiative, but you can actually sign the petition here.... Drug prohibitionism is slowly crumbling in the Western world and this petition might be just another little jolt to the sleeping consciousness of too many politicians....

Growing Old with Style and Automedicating....

Medical cannabis is ever more becoming an international reality, but while in many countries  the patients are still in trouble getting their medicine (due to criminal, obsolete and irrational laws) in some places like Colorado, Uruguay or Israel the cannabis therapy is perfectly legal and its healing effects amply recognized by doctors and patients.....See here what's currently happening in California, with many elder people using the healing herb with very good results....


LSD kills? Yes, if they put you in jail for life....

On December 16, 2014, deadhead, father and artist Roderick "Rudd" Walker died in prison at the age of 42 for cardiac arrest. In 2005, even though he was never found to possess LSD  and just on the testimony of undercover federal agents and defendants trying to reduce their own prison terms, he was sentenced to life imprisonment without any possibility of parole (because of two prior convictions on his record.)
Rudd's shocking harsh sentence and lack of proper medical assistance in prison, eventually killed him.

To read about more people serving long or life sentences in prison for non-violent drug offenses and sign petition calling on President Obama, the Department of Justice and state governors to grant clemency to these men and women, visit the Clemency Project at Change.org
