One day the madness will end Luck - I recall seeing a doco years ago on how it came to be criminalised - can't remember the details but it was all pretty murky - but once you get the medicos and the legals lined up and pointing in the same direction change can take decades.

I have the old tennis elbow to on the right hand side. Starting to get arthritis in the fingers on the same hand. Will get it very bad in the lower back soon as my lower back is riddled with it from a spine problem.

 

After speaking with my step father (a GP in Smogney) he recons when cannabis becomes legal to prescribe for more mundane aches and pains, I should try that for the discomfort. Which did surprise me as he is a bit "square"....he does like his red wine though....

I think they are all aware of the health benefits but cant prescribe it.......Yet.
Queen Victoria ( so i am told ) use to take it for period pain.

it was probably this one Croc.

 

Billion Dollar Crop - I love the opening sequence. It aired on ABC or SBS (can't remember which), it opened my eyes

 

 

EDIT: ABC (1994)

Unfortunately, those that already have the gold make the rules.

after 45 minutes in you may find the grubby answer

this was the start -

it was largely driven by the cotton industry, followed by Dupont with their new nylon

Cheers Grae, I'll watch it later on - the doco I recall was American and went back to the early part of last century when hemp became a threat to some powerful interests and Mexican immigrants provided a good scapegoat to get the pollies and lawmakers rolling:-

 

https://merryjane.co...-became-illegal

 

and now how much damage has been done to young lives in the meantime.

i think it started with the end of Prohibition. They had a whole police force dedicated to something that was now legal. 

 

They needed a job and already had a budget and the Cotton farmers controlled the politics.

 

Americans went all out in the war on drugs and enticed the world to follow. England kept and expanded the crops in India but made it illegal in Britain.

 

 

 

Ill watch your link later on Grae. The more i look into it the weirder it becomes..well weird from a not to greedy persons perspective

Actually the doco I have all my brain memory data on is not the one I posted. I have watched so many over the years.

but they all basically say

 

Prohibition cops and them needing something else to police.

Big money pulling the strings.

Greed over ruling common sense and profit over farmers

American belief they they are the new rulers of the world

Usual aches and pains in forearm the worst and around the wrist from gripping whippersnipper.For the heat; watermelon, multivitamins, coconut water, pineapple, tea, coffee, good water ,,, try and have as many different things as possible.Gave up the after work beer after a tough day, just put me to sleep.Prefer a coffee or  the occasional strong bourbon (helps with emailing and invoicing customers for some reason!!!)

Also watch your neck and posture, had a scare with numbness down one side and feet, progressed to face numbness, doctors thought it was ALS or MS, waited 6 months to see a neuro specialist (Panicking in that time , thought it was all over)Given the all clear but walked into a chinese medicine guys surgery and he nailed it straight away ie years of leaning forward with machinery was cutting off circulation and blood flow to head.Still see him 3 years later and he puts mne back in alignment every fortnight and also have a few exercises and stretches to do that have stopped it.
