“Drugs World” Visual Venn Diagram

drugsinfoisbeautiful

Accurate Venn diagram showing and categorizing natural and chemical drugs according to their effects and uses. The simple and self-explanatory design by David McCandless successfully depicts each drug in terms of its effects as a depressant, hallucinogen, stimulant and anti-psychotic. Thus emerges a clear image of the nature of drugs and their effects / uses. I won’t say much more, except look at where cannabis lies on the diagram… How much more in our face could the truth be??!! Could it be that nature provided us with a medicine that is superior to pharmaceuticals? Nah, it couldn’t, could it? 😉

*For those who still don’t get it, the diagram conclusively shows cannabis as the only drug with active ingredients that can cause depressive, hallucinogenic, stimulant and anti-psychotic effects (all 4 types of psychoactive effects). Its medicinal benefits and superiority to pills become evident when we consider the range of uses the plant could therefore have. Moreover, this brings to question the necessity for synthetic pharmaceuticals even existing, when there already is a drug found in nature that covers the entire spectrum of psychoactive effects. What a threat to these corporations’ current profits it would be if there was a scientific consensus on cannabis…

Legalize it!

“Medical Marijuana Card” – Macka B (Official Music Video)

A Herbies Seed Videos production, this animated music video is inspired by Macka B’s real life experience in the USA, when he was pulled over with a friend in California, who actually had a medical marijuana card. Upon his return to the UK, he joined producer Chris Peckings to create the song. First released in 2012, it was released again as a single in 2014 since it was very relevant considering the policy changes taking place recently. The animation is clever and funny; a singularly entertaining reggae music video. Witty, but not a joke. A serious thing…

Hilarious skit on SNL with actor Woody Harrelson

Last Saturday Woody Harrelson hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time since 1989.  One of the show’s most ingenious and humorous skits starred a dreadlocked Woody and a crowd of New Yorkers taking to the streets to celebrate the new laws concerning possession of cannabis.  The skit rightfully and cleverly points out the amendment’s limitations since possession of up to 25 grams has been decriminalized but smoking even a joint in public is still punishable.  Laughs are guaranteed!
