No “Marijuana Cigarettes” Will Not Go On Sale Worldwide In 2017, But There Is A Bigger Story Here

Published

on

Newport Cigarettes, one of the world’s most popular cigarette brands, announced that they will join the marijuana legalization trend and start producing marijuana cigarettes, or so it has been said. This story has been going around but doesn’t seem to actually be true.

Let me be the first to say that I think legalization is an important step in changing the stigma around cannabis; however, I think cannabis is still vastly misunderstood by many of us. Further, recreational use of marijuana is abused far more than most people are willing to admit.

Let’s use this opportunity to explore some of the serious elephant’s in the room we are overlooking when it comes to marijuana legalization.

Something To Think About

Firstly, cannabis can be used in many medicinal ways, when done correctly, to help with serious illness.
Example, this 3 year old had huge help with her seizures via cannabis oil. We also covered the very real scientific reasons to avoid smoking everyday, and this is partly why I’m writing this.

Now, I’m going to bring in what I’ve observed and intuitively feel is something we must be aware of when it comes to cannabis.

I do not feel legalization is entirely a step in the right direction. Let me be clear, I’m not saying that the government shouldn’t legalize a plant from nature or that we should be stopped from doing what we like. I’m simply saying there are things here that we are turning a blind eye to, things that have the potential to eventually become issues given our current path.

First off, one thing not enough people are talking about is the increase in gang war and violent activity in Colorado as a result of the legalization of cannabis. Giving the option for so many people to grow cannabis has created even more competition, leading to growers raiding other growers and trying to ensure they have a high market share. It’s important to note that this is an issue of our states of mind (greed, power, etc.) and consciousness more than anything. It’s not cannabis legalization that’s causing the issues, it’s human consciousness. However, making the decision of legalization within an unconscious world is leading to the issues at hand.

Alcohol

Let’s look at alcohol for a moment. Many people use the argument that if alcohol is legal even though it’s proven to be harmful, cannabis should be legal since it doesn’t cause any health issues. For the most part, I agree with this point, it seems absolutely crazy when you consider the reality that alcohol is legal and regulated given its disastrous effects on the human body, yet cannabis remains illegal.

At the same time, due to the state of our culture and humanity, both cannabis use and alcohol use can be very destructive. I have seen many recreational users, including people close to me, be greatly affected by recreational use that becomes an everyday occurrence. This is an addiction that can cause a number of issues and stops us from addressing our emotional challenges. Yet it’s seen as something that is entirely safe to do because marijuana is a natural plant. To add it it, due to the fact it affects the release of dopamine levels in the brain, long time users often have a hard time being happy without smoking.

It’s here where I think governments, corporations and so forth provide the product and then put their hands back and simply say, “Well, it’s up to the people to decide how they use it.” In many ways, they are technically right, but I believe that in a world where making money and profit overrules our desire to make sure our society is healthy and at peace, legalization only puts another vice out there in a more accessible and socially acceptable way.weed

The Problems With Legalization

This isn’t something we will have statistics on yet because it simply hasn’t been long enough, but I believe cannabis will create many problems like we see in Colorado as well as like what we see with alcohol but perhaps not as bad. We simply aren’t paying close enough attention to these issues yet.

We already know that for people under the age of 25, cannabis smoking effects the brain in negative ways. However, what is often not talked about in adults, is the over use, abuse and crutch that daily cannabis smoking is. It’s one thing to smoke from time to time at a party, but it’s entirely different to smoke every day, multiple times per week and so forth.

Now, I know this isn’t a popular idea or thing to talk about because it’s somewhat of a sore subject, but this is the crux of the issue. It sheds light on something that many of us don’t want to look at, which is the emotional pain we are running away from and covering up everyday using a number of vices – including cannabis. Don’t get me wrong, for those experiencing physical pain, cannabis is a different story, but I’m referring to a different type of pain.

We have a serious problem in our society when it comes to our emotional selves. We don’t know how to deal with our emotions, partially because we’re not taught how to properly deal with them, so they often get pushed aside. In exchange, we take on a number of addictions to modify our feelings (mainly through dopamine release) via alcohol, cannabis, sex addiction, social media addiction, etc. in order to deal with them.

The legalization of cannabis will also attract more users because it will become easier to obtain. So, if a person is having a bad day, week, month or are not sure how to deal with the emotional challenges they’re facing, another unhealthy vice can be used and it would be considered socially acceptable to do so.

Let me be clear, I do not think cannabis is evil, bad, or the problem entirely, I believe our mindsets and consciousness are. Since we live in a world where we are so out of touch with ourselves and not equipped with the tools to work through what we face daily, this is just giving us another thing to get lost in, create more problems and distract us from our real challenges.

That being said, I believe cannabis can be used as a healing herb to help many people, but it should be used as that and people should be educated about it properly. Most people aren’t even aware that isolating certain compounds in cannabis isn’t nearly as therapeutic as taking the whole plant. Further, smoking it offers little to no therapeutic value as it should be made into oil, eaten raw or juiced.

As a whole, our culture views cannabis as something safe and cool to do, to deny that would be naive. So, given the culture around it, we are not aware of the real problem it can create (along with many vices).

The Solution

I don’t think the issue is necessarily what we do entirely in the political and law realm, but more so in the education realm of the long-term effects of cannabis use, the ages at which it is safe and most importantly, equipping society with the tools to deal with our stresses, anxieties and emotional traumas without resorting to substance abuse. When an individual is feeling good, fulfilled and at peace, they aren’t likely to use these substances often, so we avoid these issues altogether. To me, that is what will produce a solid, evolving, peaceful society with a high quality of life.

Here are a few resources to help deal with some challenges that we might face in our everyday lives, that cause us to turn to vices like cannabis.

Our Biology Responds To Events Before They Even Happen

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple experiments have shown strong evidence for precognition in several different ways. One of them comes in the form of activity within the heart and the brain responding to events before they even happen.

  • Reflect On:

    Do we have extra human capacities we are unaware of? Perhaps we can learn them, develop them, and use them for good. Perhaps when the human race is ready, we will start learning more.

Is precognition real? There are many examples suggesting that yes, it is. The remote viewing program conducted by the CIA in conjunction with Stanford University was a good example of that.  After its declassification in 1995, or at least partial declassification, the Department of Defense and those involved revealed an exceptionally high success rate:

To summarize, over the years, the back-and-forth criticism of protocols, refinement of methods, and successful replication of this type of remote viewing in independent laboratories has yielded considerable scientific evidence for the reality of the (remote viewing) phenomenon. Adding to the strength of these results was the discovery that a growing number of individuals could be found to demonstrate high-quality remote viewing, often to their own surprise… The development of this capability at SRI has evolved to the point where visiting CIA personnel with no previous exposure to such concepts have performed well under controlled laboratory conditions. (source)

The kicker? Part of remote viewing involves peering into future events as well as events that happened in the past.

It’s not only within the Department of Defense that we find this stuff, but a lot of science is emerging on this subject as well.

For example, a study (meta analysis) published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience titled “Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity” examined a number of experiments regarding this phenomenon that were conducted by several different laboratories. These experiments indicate that the human body can actually detect randomly delivered stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds in advance. In other words, the human body seems to know of an event and reacts to the event before it has occurred. What occurs in the human body before these events are physiological changes that are measured regarding the cardiopulmonary, the skin, and the nervous system.

A few years ago, the chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Dean Radin, visited the scientists over at HearthMath Institute and shared the results of one of his studies. Radin is also one of multiple scientists who authored the paper above. These studies, as mentioned above, tracked the autonomic nervous system, physiological changes, etc.

Scientists at HeartMath Institute (HMI) added more protocols, which included measuring participants’ brain waves (EEG), their hearts’ electrical activity (ECG), and their heart rate variability (HRV).

As HMI explains:

Twenty-six adults experienced in using HeartMath techniques and who could sustain a heart-coherent state completed two rounds of study protocols approximately two weeks apart. Half of the participants completed the protocols after they intentionally achieved a heart-coherent state for 10 minutes. The other half completed the same procedures without first achieving heart coherence. Then they reversed the process for the second round of monitoring, with the first group not becoming heart-coherent before completing the protocols and the second group becoming heart-coherent before. The point was to test whether heart coherence affected the results of the experiment.

Participants were told the study’s purpose was to test stress reactions and were unaware of its actual purpose. (This practice meets institutional-review-board standards.) Each participant sat at a computer and was instructed to click a mouse when ready to begin.

The screen stayed blank for six seconds. The participant’s physiological data was recorded by a special software program, and then, one by one, a series of 45 pictures was displayed on the screen. Each picture, displayed for 3 seconds, evoked either a strong emotional reaction or a calm state. After each picture, the screen went blank for 10 seconds. Participants repeated this process for all 45 pictures, 30 of which were known to evoke a calm response and 15 a strong emotional response.

The Results

The results of the experiment were fascinating to say the least. The participants’ brains and hearts responded to information about the emotional quality of the pictures before the computer flashed them (random selection). This means that the heart and brain were both responding to future events. The results indicated that the responses happened, on average, 4.8 seconds before the computer selected the pictures.

How mind-altering is that?

Even more profound, perhaps, was data showing the heart received information before the brain. “It is first registered from the heart,” Rollin McCraty Ph.D. explained, “then up to the brain (emotional and pre-frontal cortex), where we can logically relate what we are intuiting, then finally down to the gut (or where something stirs).”

Another significant study (meta-analysis) that was published in Journal of Parapsychology by Charles Honorton and Diane C. Ferrari in 1989 examined a number of studies that were published between 1935 and 1987. The studies involved individuals’ attempts to predict “the identity of target stimuli selected randomly over intervals ranging from several hundred million seconds to one year following the individuals responses.” These authors investigated over 300 studies conducted by over 60 authors, using approximately 2 million individual trials by more than 50,000 people. (source)

It concluded that their analysis of precognition experiments “confirms the existence of a small but highly significant precognition effect. The effect appears to be repeatable; significant outcomes are reported by 40 investigators using a variety of methodological paradigms and subject populations. The precognition effect is not merely an unexplained departure from a theoretical chance baseline, but rather is an effect that covaries with factors known to influence more familiar aspects of human performance.” (source)

The Takeaway

“There seems to be a deep concern that the whole field will be tarnished by studying a phenomenon that is tainted by its association with superstition, spiritualism and magic. Protecting against this possibility sometimes seems more important than encouraging scientific exploration or protecting academic freedom. But this may be changing.”
 Cassandra Vieten, PhD and President/CEO at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (source)

We are living in a day and age where new information and evidence are constantly emerging, challenging what we once thought was real or what we think we know about ourselves as human beings.  It’s best to keep an open mind. Perhaps there are aspects of ourselves and our consciousness that have yet to be discovered. Perhaps if we learn and grow from these studies, they can help us better ourselves and others.

The 5G Health Summit Starts Tomorrow (June 1st) – Reserve Your Free Spot Here

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A global online summit featuring doctors, scientists & activists addressing the health concerns of 5G technology and what people can do about it is set to take place the first week of June and it's free to sign up.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are safety concerns that've been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals called a "conspiracy theory?" Why is this idea ridiculed? Why don't our federal health regulatory agencies simply to some health safety testing before rolling it out?

Some of the world’s leading scientists, doctors and activists are gathering for a free online summit that begins on Monday June 1st and will run for approximately one week. The summit will dive into the health concerns of 5G technology, and why it’s a concern and what people can do about it. The summit is completely free to sign up and watch, and you can do so here.

We’ve also put together an E-book titled “Is 5G Safe? An Easy to Understand Guide” summarizing the published peer-reviewed research that is raising concerns about electromagnetic radiation that’s emitted from our favourite wireless devices, cell phones and more, as well as novel 5G technology.  It’s a great resource that you can share with family or friends who desire to look at the proof, research, evidence and concerns that thousands of doctors and scientists have been and are creating awareness about all over the globe.  We wrote it in language designed to be simple and factual.

Once you sign up for the summit, you get access to the free E-book.

It’s quite strange that any researched journalist could dismiss the health concerns of 5G technology, as well as 4G and 3G, when there are nearly 10,000 peer-reviewed scientific studies that raise cause for concern. A study published in 2019 in Frontiers in Public Health is one of many that raises concerns about 5G technology, explaining how there is no safety testing, and that in vivo and in vitro studies regarding this type of technology and it’s predecessors have shown that it’s harmful to human health, even at levels below current “safety” limits.

At the end of the day, whether you believe this type of technology is safe or you don’t, would it not be in the best interests of everybody to have the  technology go through some type of required safety testing? Shouldn’t any technology that has any sort of biological effect be put through safety testing? Why has there not been any safety testing?

In December 2018, US. Senator Richard Blumenthal and U.S. Representative Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) sent a letter to FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr seeking answers regarding potential health risks posed by new 5G wireless technology. At  a hearing, that took place last year, Blumenthal criticized Carr for failing to provide answers, and did the same thing to other industry representatives that were in attendance for not putting the technology through safety testing. You can watch a clip of that hearing and read more about it, here.

How can our federal health regulatory agencies approve products that are clearly a cause for concern?

This is why the summit is going to be such a great resource. It will answer many questions, and again, let people know what they can do about it!

Dr. Buttar Reveals Declassified Government Report Related to 5G Dangers

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Rashid Butter discusses a declassified report on millimetre wave technology and the effects it has on human health. These are the same waves used in 5G technology.

  • Reflect On:

    If we already know these waves cause harm to human health, why do we use them in airport scanners? Why are we about to roll out an entire wireless network based on these technologies?

People often say 5G hasn’t been tested, and to some extent that is true. But given 5G uses millimetre wave technology and that technology has been studied for quite some time, it has obviously been tested by those who have worked on them. So why hasn’t this information been widely released? Why are we not looking at the available data on millimetre wave technology as it relates to 5G?

Recently we came across 7 Russian studies that were summarized in a report declassified through the CIA. These studies were declassified in 2012 and marked “For Goverment Use Only.” From what you can gather very quickly in this report, the conclusions should shut down 5G rollout instantly. At least until someone can show, beyond any reasonable doubt, that this technology is safe.

Let’s have a quick look at how this report was concluded:

“Thus the conducted investigations indicate high biological activity and an unfavourable influence of millimeter radiowaves on the organism. The expression of the biological reactions increased with an increase of the period of iridation and depended on individual characteristics of the organism.”

What this translates to in plain English is, millimetre-wave frequencies do affect the human body negatively, and the longer the exposure, the more damage that occurs. Since 5G uses millimetre waves and is set to push a constant barrage of frequency on humans anywhere they go, this would mean sustained wave exposure, and thus inevitable biological damage.

Incredibly, these are the same wave technologies used in airport fully body scanners that we have been raising awareness about for years. It’s important to note, you CAN opt out of going through those scanners.

Dr. Rashid Buttar has given an incredible interview where he goes page by page as to exactly what this declassified CIA research reveals. The report summarizes 7 studies on the effects of millimeter-wave radiation levels between 37-60GHz. These levels are “safe” according to government, but that is NOT what the science says.

As we have said for the last year and a half, now is a potent time to understand the dangers of 5G and work to stop its rollout. This interview is a must listen. Click here to watch Dr. Rashid Buttar’s interview.

As we can tell in our world right now, a ton of truth is coming to the surface, the environment to create change is ripe. If we can stay grounded, in our hearts and avoid descending into hate, we can TRULY make a big difference here.
