Why the "name" Cannabis Animus?
I understand “Cannabis” as representative of the larger subject and discussion our visitors and fellow citizens are having on the subject. My intention behind the combination with the term “animus” represents my own motivations and straightforward angst over how our Federal government has treated my fellow Americans since long before my generation really put the Federal Government’s silly propaganda plays to the test.
1) hostility, or ill feeling
2) motivation to do something
While you and I can clearly see the attempts at distortion and 'misinformation' over the last 80 years, our U.S. Federal Government representatives and bureaucratic leaders continue their close to century-old lies and obfuscations surrounding “marijuana” and their donors’ demands to protect their industries. 2021 developments are pretty much more of the same - encouraging at least. We'll certainly see the fiasco unfold further this year as "animal spirits" and "institutions" seek to capture an advantage in emerging Cannabis markets.
It’s also now clear that the last three U.S. Presidents have publicly acknowledged individual States Rights, State-licensed Medical Cannabis Patient Rights, and States’ Rights in general when it comes to Federal laws and criminalization of Cannabis use, cultivation, or even research on the medical benefits of Cannabis products. It clearly shows us how ineffective a President can be when they want to be.
Undeterred, I channel my personal animus as constructively as I possibly can. And you know what, I’m betting on the side of us Americans... and entrepreneurs. Call me crazy, but I’m still voting with my pen. Giving up on principles is not in my DNA.
I believe our pens (and Minds) harness the potential for positive change. Entrepreneurs, especially American ones, are powerful optimists and have proven to be the greatest agents for change in the history of man's willfulness and potential.
What is Cannabis Animus All About?
It’s about the elephant in the room. I’m joining in a collective effort with many of my fellow Americans to disrobe the current ‘emperors’ and their political puppets. I’m all-in, and I want to contribute and help in some way to build the larger case for our future health and wellbeing.
I believe that the majority of Americans want to replace our pay-for-play politicians with more informed and compassionate political leaders – men and women of conscience as opposed to career politicians. We’ve seen this most fortunate and critical momentum building for some time now.
And we also seek new Justice and Law Enforcement System professionals of conscience who realize that one of the biggest ways to lower the spiraling, out-of-control medical care costs in America will and must directly involve the Cannabis industry and Cannabis science.
I’ve created Cannabis Animus as a platform for promoting the important discoveries that modern bio-science, nanotechnology, and medical research are showing us about the myriad uses of the Cannabis plant species including its powerful healing properties.
Our members represent all political parties, religions, and spiritual philosophies, atheist or agnostic. We are issue-focused and inclusive by design.
I hope Cannabis Animus draws guest bloggers, health professionals, historians, and even politicians who have grown a pair. And if I can handle the heat that is put upon me as a more ‘vocal’ caregiver and patient, I hope to elaborate on the story of Cannabis in America as a writer.
100% Safe-Natural – 100% Non-Psychoactive – 100% Non-Addictive
In the meantime, Cannabis Animus is about educating those who choose to become more knowledgeable on the subject of Cannabis. More specifically, our current focus is on CDB-related subjects and methods of cannabidiol delivery evidenced by our long history of recommending and writing about nano CBD products that optimize bio-availability and therefore effectiveness of select, high-quality CBD products (for both humans and our pets).
First and foremost, we are emphasizing how Cannabis-derived CBD offers an all-natural, safe, and non-addictive method of managing pain and anxiety symptoms while optimizing both physical and mental wellness in the process.
CA Members receive economic benefits in the form of product discounts, additional Discount Coupons, and we try to keep everyone updated on highly relevant events, CBD News, leading-edge Cannabis science, and CBD industry impacts, patient-relevant articles, and specific Product Reviews.
These new product introductions carry with them healthier solutions and quantum improvements to many treatments and illnesses that ultimately affect us all in one way or another.
I highly recommend that you take a few minutes to learn exactly why CBD is so important for homeostasis (dynamic balance) and therefore optimal health. So without further delay, please allow me to introduce Dr. Asher Milgrom, Ph.D., CEO, and Chief Scientist at AMA Regenerative Medicine.
On a more macro scale, an entirely new and truly sustainable, natural resource offering economies of scale with off-the-charts productivity potential and world-wide employment gains… if we would just all agree to let American ingenuity and individual freedom lead the way to a significantly more productive, efficient, and environmentally sound way of looking at this miraculous plant species.
Cannabis Animus Members understand that our elected officials and their appointees are “lobbied” to continue supporting an 80-year-old prohibition of all things Cannabis or “marijuana” in order to sustain their bidder’s ultimately uncompetitive markets. The 2022 Elections will likely be a "demonstration" by more voters in history replacing their elected official en masse.
Are American’s tired of pay-for-play politics? I humbly suggest that there is no time like the present to finally make some common-sense decisions based on facts and your own observations.
We also understand that just because a relatively tiny, but extremely wealthy and powerful population of Americans wish to protect their investments in the status quo, doesn’t mean that we all have to tow their line. The tide has now turned and there's no reason to continue to comply with them in any way. Watch them all jump on the Cannabis Profit Bandwagon. They'll all be extolling the virtue of Cannabis research and medical discovery, blah, blah...
I am personally prospecting for more wealthy and/or influential Americans that are “coming out” as anti-prohibition and anti-pay-for-play. Why continue to support the criminalization of Americans? Join us at Cannabis Animus and speak up! We ALL want to hear from you!
“If we would just all agree to let American ingenuity, creativity, and individual freedom lead the way to a significantly more productive, efficient, and environmentally productive way of working with this miraculous plant species?...” -Ted
For decades, we have been incarcerating millions of Americans for what is essentially the best known, natural, safe, and non-addictive solution for combating dozens of diseases and the spiraling medical costs largely caused by the same diseases and even the medications prescribed by their physicians.
We can all see that the majority of states and their people are responding in increasing numbers of voters with decades of disdain for pay-for-play politicians, zero-sum gamesmanship, and openly legalized bribery (lobbying) as fair game in Washington DC, but nowhere else.
We recognize our bloated and obnoxious Federal Government as not only wasteful, they consistently over-step their Constitutional authority and trust that “We” put in our Justice System and Law Enforcement.
“There is nothing wrong with healthcare in America. The problem is with mega-sized insurance companies who are allowed to run the entire medical-pharma racket.
Physicians and surgeons are paid by insurance companies, not patients. Get it?
So ask yourself again.... Who pays (signs) their checks?" -Ted
What about Insurance Companies and Healthcare?
As we wait patiently for our Republic’s remaining States' voters to come to their collective senses regarding medical and/or recreational use of marijuana, hemp, and all the Cannabis species' new hybrids in general, extreme and unnecessary social costs from natural plant supplement prohibitions tear at our Country’s common-sense experience and desire to heal. Until all Americans can buy our medical insurance on an open and nationwide (or worldwide) basis, "we the people" of these individual States will have to bend and often bow to Federal regulators and our Capital Hill, elected representatives to determine our fate.
Insurance companies control how much the overwhelming majority of physicians and surgeons are paid. I know. I worked on the front lines with ophthalmic surgeons and glaucoma specialists. I've learned first-hand exactly what has happened to Insurance-industry-controlled reimbursements.
However, I’m not aware of any similar “haircut” that Insurance companies have taken. Their stockholders are doing better than ever in this post-Trump era "marketplace”. U.S. Presidents and Washington lawyers write prolific Healthcare Reform bills that are ‘regulated’ by the same Federal bureaucracies/Government that prosecute and incarcerates citizens in larger numbers than ever before in history. Perhaps you are aware that in academically economic terms... it’s called a “racket”.
So stay tuned to the Cannabis Animus website and our social media platforms - if they haven't been permanently banned yet (we just got reinstated by Facebook in February 2021). And in the meantime, consider taking more control of your health, wellbeing, and the quality of your life. We offer you new knowledge to consider along with your physicians and mental health experts.
And consider too the fact that there is indeed a war being fought, and this endless War on Drugs is actually a War Against All Civil Rights and a War Against Quality & Affordable Healthcare for Americans.
With due respect for all health professionals, I want my audience to understand that there is a wonderful solution for what all of us patients seek.
We strive to be in relative control of our own physical and mental wellbeing - instead of 'blindly' taking synthetic drugs with dangerous side effects including pre-mature, drug-induced death.
Informed and honest professionals will advise the same, and we all hope to hear more from them in the future! In the meantime, Cannabis Animus will continue to do our best to share the known science originating from natural plants and fungi. It's ultimately up to us to educate ourselves.
As many of us know, science is no longer taught in the majority of schools any longer. Isn't it clear by now that what is illegal and demonized one day is lauded as the new "cure" the very next - or vis-versa? Big Pharma gets sued for the most despicably inhumane violations imaginable, and gladly pay their "fines" when forced to.
We must accept the responsibility to "treat ourselves" as patients if and whenever necessary. Godspeed.
