By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

Great Britain is proving just how great it is, and it is using a six-year-old-boy to do it. Proving that the Western world is a symbol of oppression, not freedom, the UK Home Office has rejected a plea from Alfie Dingley’s family and even MPs to allow Alfie access to cannabis to treat a rare form of childhood epilepsy that can cause up to 30 seizures a day and numerous hospital visits.

Of course, one could ask the obvious question: Why does anyone have to plea to use a plant in a country that never shuts up about how free it is? Continue reading Rules is Rules – UK Govt Forces 6-Year-Old to Suffer 30 Seizures a Day, No Weed for You

Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Recipients Pressured to Choose Guns or Ganja

By Heather CallaghanEditor, Natural Blaze

“They’re going to have to make a choice – They can have their guns or their marijuana, but not both.”

But, why?

Is our nation really going to be hunting down medical marijuana users and threatening them to surrender their firearms even though they are not criminals?

If marijuana is legal, especially in states with above-board dispensaries, and especially for medical purposes – then why should one be forced to give up their home defense tools to appease the State? After all, people drink and shoot firearms (not recommended!). But you aren’t pressured to give up guns if you are seen purchasing beer, and the wake of damage left by alcohol excess is quite obvious.

By Heather CallaghanEditor, Natural Blaze

“We want [drug screens] to be routine in all medicine…”

It’s bad enough in 2018 that the war on drugs still exists in the deluded minds of government higher-ups, just as some states begin to legalize recreational marijuana. And just as they do, Attorney General Jeff Sessions dropped the bomb that the Federal Government ended its leniency toward states’ rights for medical marijuanaThus, we devolve as a nation.

But the biggest blow to Americans was when Sessions’ DEA, although going after marijuana as a dangerous substance – in essence gave a Pharma opioid maker the rights to a partial national monopoly on synthetic THC! Continue reading Marijuana Advisor to Sessions Wants to Drug Test Everyone

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Attacks Legalized Marijuana, Jeopardizes Multi-Billion Dollar Industry

By Carolanne Wright, Wake Up World

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has begun the new year with an assault against state legalized cannabis, claiming it violates federal law and revoking an Obama-era memo that instructed state prosecutors to focus on illicit activity which specifically causes harm — like selling drugs to minors and criminal gangs involved in the drug trade across state lines — instead of marijuana businesses that were complying with state regulations.
