It's a grim fact of life that the vast majority of humans (I rely on 
the figure 70%) are prone to blindly follow leadership. But think of 
it: what greater power of persuasion can we exert than making people 
slaves out of fear based on a lie? Cannabis is the most studied, 
medicinally active and industrially versatile plant on earth. This 
means it has enemies in almost every economic sector. And since the 
government lies based on that power dynamic, it's left to a fraction 
of the 30% of critical autonomous thinkers among the general public 
to set the record straight. To this day, cannabis is the most 
effective and safest anti-nausea medicine on Earth. It's also the 
most effective and safest medicine to relieve stalled labour. It's 
also the medicine most lied about by pharmaceutical industry shills. 
The same research and regulation system has brought us Ritalin, 
Valium, Aspartame. The list of their collective minor and major 
side-effects is too long for this letter. How much do we really want 
to regulate Cannabis, when it's the monstrously corrupt regulatory 
system that's the problem?

(30%? Try 2%. If that. It's an awfully long road to 30%.)
