We need legal medical cannabis. We know from all the testimonies that medical cannabis can save lives. Lives that traditional medicine and pharmaceuticals can not help. Yet many states in the United States, the Federal Government of the USA, parts of Europe and countless countries around the world still deny or restrict it’s citizens this God given herb. You may question, as I did, how do we get legal medical cannabis. While it may be simple it is far from easy.
How Do We Do It
The basic idea to getting any law changed is to let your governing body know what you want. That is when it becomes harder. Some counties do not allow for the citizens to voice their opinion. Some lawmakers don’t listen to their people. However, wherever you may live the rule still applies. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. The reason that the laws are as they are is that the large pharmaceutical companies create the loudest squeak. To change the laws, we as a whole need to make such a noise that our governing bodies can not ignore.
This will require contacting your local and federal legislators. We have the ability to contact these lawmakers like never before. Writing letters is still a very viable method. Most offices have telephones with message takers that we can leave word. But in this day and age, we have the internet that gives us the capability to send emails. Remember that slogan, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. We must be relentless in sending messages, not once but until our voice is heard and recognized.
You see, large pharmaceutical companies do not want you or me to be able to cure your own illnesses. Their intent is to “treat” the illness thus creating a residual income from your and my sufferings. The amount of monies directed to researching for a cure would end the minute that a cure is found. Therefore no cure will be found only a relief. This provides false hopes that continued contributions will someday reveal a cure. These pharma companies have lobbyists that are in the faces of our legislators. They are even donating large sums of money to keep their interest on
Your Homework for Legal Medical Cannabis
Making medical cannabis is important to all of us. You will need to do some homework to locate the names, numbers, addresses, and emails for your government officials.

This is the kind of noise that I am referring to.
