Marijuana in Colombia

Colombian unit of “Forbes” suggests that Marijuana market in Colombia is reaching 166 million dollars in sales by 2025. The very weed-growing place on Earth this one was ever before, and even more it is now, the whole lot of cannabis companies, investors and private marijuana enterpreneurs appear in the country since the government has changed the strategy towards legal cannabis. The very milestone for the whole marijuana industry happened in 2016 when FARC (the, so called, cocaine syndicate, indeed it was a liberation army) negotiated peace with the government, bringing peace into the country after 50-year long civil war, and, also allowing the legal cannabis business in Colombia to continue ever since as the lawful enterprise.

Drug-dealing image of the past plays a positive role for Colombia now

Colombia obviously bears a certain image of the drug dealing place, mainly for its cocaine exports going out for half a century into all countries all around the planet. Panama channel, the biggest maritime hub of the world, played its role in it too, and the clashes on the border between Colombian syndicate force and government troops of both Colombia and Panama happened all the time, the babylon news say so, people in Panama say so, governments say so. That was the place where the war on plants went beyond “the cops surpressing children”, but more likely shaped into the form of a real fullscale war between the armed forces, far bigger than just a rebellion.

From the other side, no doubt, “the Colombian” became the synonim to “the Quality” in the street black markets of all countries, from those involved into consumption of drugs. The whole story is getting to be already the ancient history quite quickly, the war has gone, the Colombian government signed the historical peace treaty with the FARC syndicate, and the president is eventually got awarded by the Nobel prize for this. All is well. The peaceful new age arrived upon the beautiful country and it’s time to set the clock to 4:20.

Colombian stuff means quality and it is 4:20 time in the whole country

Well, the past is the past, and now the un-intentinal strategy of making colombian quality trademark is a good card to play, the Canna World Congress takes place in Colombia, which is a good news for the nation, we shall hope it’ll grow into a big worldwide event influencing the industry. Here is the logic: the Colombian coffee, one of the best in the world, who may argue? and this fact clearly demonstrates the farming skills of the growers, the knowledge, the technology of the farming, along with Colombian soil and Colombian sun, are altogether the very proper combination.

Peace treaty with FARC

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, also called FARC, from Spanish Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, was formed in 1964 as a Marxism-Leninism war unit to oppose the imperialism. Ever since, all the way till 2016, the country experienced the endless fullscale civil war between the government and the FARC. It’s not the editorial of this website to judge which party was right’er and which was wrong’er, but the history of the world says both were badasses, with the only difference that only one of them making the official stats for casualities among and violations against civilians.

Anyway, among other activities (like politically motivated kidnappings) the famous colombian drug trade was what FARC was doing to raise funds, having the well established taxation system in the territories of their control, allowing farmers to grow, mostly cocaine and weed also, and in exchange giving the effective protection from the government enforcement. So, in 2012, after 50 years of the civil war, the long-long negotiated started, resulting the national referendum and then the Peace Treaty signed by both sides in 2016 in Havana, Cuba.

It’s in your hands, of all Colombians, to decide with your vote to support this historic accord that puts an end to this long conflict between the children of the same nation, —

President Juan Manuel Santos (of Colombia) said, according to an Associated Press translation, prior to the national referendum on the peace treaty with FARC

The part of the deal touched the drug trafficking, so that FARC should stop making cash out of worldwide cocaine trade, and by that allowing the government to develop the rural communities, whereto they have had quite a limited access in times of war. And the drug legislation of the country has been changing along with the peace negotiation, of course.

Marijuana Laws in Colombia

In 1994 the possession was decriminalized in Colombia, by decision of the Contitutional Court, making the country to be among the first countries, like Uruguay, Netherlands, Portugal, Argentina, not many but they are a number, loosing the tention of the globally histerical war on plants. Personal use has become legal de-juro, and possession of 20 grams of weed for personal use are not prosecuted since 2012, and also this includes 1 gram of cocaine. Home cultivation of 20 plants for personal use is legal since 2015.

However, the anti-plant activists applied another attempt to limit marijuana use back again, when the government quite suddenly disallowed the use of weed in public areas in 2018, also enabling police to perform personal search and confiscation of drugs, including those small decriminalized amounts of porro in violation of the existing laws. Half a year later the consitutional court acknowledged the mentioned “enforcement” being unconstitutional, in 2019.

Do not forget to check on all laws, decrets, latest news before doing anything in this regard in any foreign country, it is not yet a total nirvanna in the world yet, many changes apply continiously, and especially nowadays they are frequent everywhere.

Law 1787 is the main on Cannabis Business in Colombia

The Law 1787, dated: 6th of July of 2016, is now the main document for the cannabis market in Colombia, allowing production, trade, transport, import and export of medical cannabis, industrial hemp, or other scientific purpose, and by far not allowing explicitly the recreational trade except of the personal use (which is not the trade) with the 20 grams in personal possession, and 20 plants at home.

The business activity on cannabis should be licensed, this law suggests, by National Institute of Control on Medical Substances, and in Spanish, in case you need it for search to explore more on the topic, its name is: Instututo Nacional de de Vigilancia de Medicamentos y Alimentos.

We don’t want pain

Hey fellow site st’owners! How’s life. Have you already frightened all your readers about pains and cancers and all sorts of other spooky-schmooky stuff? If you say yes on that then you are not our fellow site st’owner, hahaha // You only remember this is a private web site and we suggest to stay away if you are here by any reason other than curiosity for reading my off-deck (or is it off-key?) opinion. This my polite ‘please stay away’ was for humans, and for anyone related to any sort of gügle bots for such I have my very special “Get away and never come back unless intentions change”, it’ll just make my access log stats better for reading // but for friends let me go on… Better call it a pothead’s fantasy rather than think it’s an attempt to ruin or alter anyone’s belief. I respect all beliefs, and personally I also support World Snake and Lady Yaga – it’s totally your own decision to choose what you are up to.

Pain is a Natural Mechanics

1.
When you hammer down a nail doing a home work, or if you are a carpenter – if you accidentally hit a finger and most probably suffer – will you take a pill in advance to ease it or even not feel it at all? The answer is: No!

2.
When you make a campfire while camping or ignite a beautiful fireplace for another beautiful family dinner – do you want to prevent pain that will probably burn your skin, damage it and hurt you – why not take a pill and “fuck that burns I have more pills”? No way, what a stupid idea that would be! All people of Earth normally try to escape any damage of the body, always, it’s natural and we need Pain for this…

3.
The Pain in the body is the Protection that helps you to survive and there have been never intention from Nature or God or Gods (choose your version) to make us suffer, but this is exclusively the protection, and by killing that protection you kill your safety and risk your health – this is simple as hell and this is hell logical. I can suggest more – when that second-popular God was torturing his own son he did not offer any pain relief for his poor boy either. Virgins normally do not eat pills before their first sexual contact even tho they have no idea how painful it may occur or not.

All because PAIN is a natural thing and we need it. And we’d very likely could NOT survive neither evolve without it.

A Question I have…

My friend, the patient reader of this train of thoughts, IF WE virtually find it too far stupid to protect a finger from a hammer by taking pills, why we wish so recklessly to disable the same protection mechanism (the pain) when it comes to the inner organs?

Feeling pain I need as a signal from my body to understand clearly that something went really wrong and how far it went. It might be a wrong food, or too cold, maybe a wrong armchair for one’s spine, or merely a tiredness which is the worst enemy. And to solve it I need to fix the wrong condition rather than a chemical to cheat my own body. I will know soon what exactly makes me feel pain less, naturally, and by that the knowledge is power and the knowledge is life.

Love yourself the most.

Cannabis Spirituality vs. Cannabis the New Pill

I have heard an opinion, a couple of times maybe, and it’s easy to find one, suggesting that Cannabis Plant is a gift given to Humanity for a pain relief. What a rare piece of shit it is, I think.

Cannabis is for Love — Ayurvedic medics used cannabis mostly as aphrodisiac, one grand master in it, who was from Sri Lanka, he told me, they used it for a million years until 2015 when eventually the liberation arrived to Sri Lanka. It’s a psychoactive plant and it hits thoughts, and there cannot be another reason to use “psycho” in the definition which simply means “soul” in Greek, not “pill” not “cancer” (god forbid).

Cannabis is for Communication — Spirituality is what makes one talking to God, by some means. Even tho you are the God by yourself, and some religions support the idea, or you better prefer some outer God, whatever. You communicate to people easily and with pleasure when stoned, and you can communicate to anybody and a god is not an exception.

Certain psychoactives, particularly hallucinogens, have been used for religious (spiritual) purposes since prehistoric times. Native Americans have used peyote cacti containing mescaline for religious ceremonies for as long as 5700 years – Wiki states. No “medicine” mentioned.

Psychoactives change the brain function and result in alterations in perception, mood, consciousness, cognition, or behavior; for ritual, spiritual, or shamanic purposes; or for research. No “medicine” again, at least not that much of it.

Love and Pain among Cannabis Websites

Try a small research, it’s fun. In search type “site:domain.com keyword”, and it will find the number of entries, I used ggl. Most of search engines will find also the variations of the words, so the method somewhat demonstrates the approach. Keywords are “Love” (L), “Pain” (P), “Cancer” (C) and “Spirituality” (S). Take a “Ranking Sum” (ΣR), where bad ones a negative, and good ones are positive, like this:

ΣR = L + S – P – C, then divide by total sum (ΣT = L+S+P+C) to get the shares rather than absolute numbers, like this: ΣR / ΣT.

The resulting Value shall be the rating of a Goodness, hahaha!

Herewego, what is in the end:
