the fight against cannabis stigma is a herculean task

The international cannabis community continues in the titanic task of showing the world that cannabis should not be considered only as a drug, considering that the plant has multiple benefits which break stigmas around it.

As if that wasn't enough, there are also applications for cell phones like Apple that allow access to the products and services offered by large and small brands. When talking to people within the cannabis community, who are specialists in the uses of the plant, they are almost always asked the same question: why do you think there is so much stigma towards the plant? To which each one of them answers in…

when will there be justice for cannabis?

Currently and despite the many studies, advances and discoveries of the therapeutic properties of cannabis; in several parts of the world there are still imprisonments because of its cultivation. Through social networks we can constantly see how the police abruptly approach the home of someone who is growing cannabis for medicinal purposes, and they end up paying the consequences for something that should not be considered a crime. Due to this type of police acts it is worth questioning the word "Justice", as something that seems to be fading day by day, while crimes such as robberies or rapes abound, law enforcement officers spend much of their time capturing people who are only planting in their homes a plant for medicinal purposes. In countries such as Argentina and Chile there were cases…

latin america:

Which countries lead the cannabis market in the region? In recent years, Latin America has fought against drug trafficking. This war has forced their governments to establish stricter anti-drug laws, that is why people suffering from chronic diseases are turning to the 'black market' to buy cannabis and prepare medicine to relieve their ills. In theory, it would be better to divide the fight in two: a bill for medicinal use and another for adult use. However, the new world has suffered the consequences of the mixture or confusion of these two topics. In other words, Latin American countries have this social problem and have faced many debates in their different legislative scenarios. However, a law is approved based on a situation that society is experiencing. Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru…
