Amazing. Sweden needs to grow the hell up, their policies are draconian. It was only demonized for the sake of the timber industry, big pharma, the oil industry, and plastics.
As far as here, what a strange deal. They legalized it for medical use, but the article ran one day before pulling it from the newspaper.
They govern via lack of information here.
So much brainwashing up here about it... it's classified like heroin.
We used it medicinally, recreationally and for food for millions of years, it was outlawed in the 30's by big business lining the pockets of lawmakers pushing demonization of an innocuous substance for their own personal gain.
It's only been illegal for 80 or so years.
Then there are these goofy Christian do gooders who think somehow it's wrong or immoral. They should check the Bible.
What do you think that 'anointing oil' was made from? Too many inconvenient truths about it.
Legislators worth their salt owe it to themselves to educate themselves. Here they pretend to be worried about alcohol consumption - In reality it's a money making cow keeping it State owned monopoly.
If they were REALLY concerned about public health, it would already be offered as a legal alternative, taxed and sold in Stores like Tobacco and Beer.
So many arcane laws here, you can't even get an aspirin without going to the pharmacy. The 21st century is calling and politicians are all victims of an 'education' indoctrination that told them it was the end of the world.
People don't like to give up their lies and prejudice. They will cling tightly to horse hockey rather than embrace the truth.
