On behalf of our Respect Cannabis campaign, I wish you the very best 420 (cannabis style) celebration.
I’ve been sadly too busy on many fronts to more strongly form a joint celebration with the “fannabis” of cannabis among you all this year, but hope remains for that strength during the upcoming annual revisitations of such celebrations.
Our Respect Cannabis campaign — on behalf of righteously fair law for all and the sensible promoting of responsible intentional perception alteration in general — continues along a naturally paved path through the metaphorical wilderness of humanity to find our way to preferably a healthy public resonance for everyone’s benefit.
May we all find our psychedelic groove for positive set and setting and the healthy resulting cycles seamlessly blending with next April 20.
Celebration obviously works/plays best when tragedy is avoided, so I annually repeat the following excerpt from our Respect Cannabis informational roots on this celebratory day to preferably help people avoid abuse in any of its many forms…
Cannabis is one perception alteration tool. Not limited to an impact by drugs, perception alteration can also be impacted by technology, spirituality, and logically any other experience shaping perception.
While ways to alter perception by drug intake are becoming more numerous (and we can logically assume that nanotechnology and biocomputing will introduce a vast new set of illicit-drug-like effects that crushingly overwhelm any sense in applying the already-demonstrably-failed prohibition mindset), the basics of use and abuse remain the same throughout posterity, regardless of the method of perception alteration.
Therefore, it makes perfect sense for an intelligent and civilized society to focus solely upon continuously educating those basics:
1. Stay sober (i.e. avoid intentional perception alteration) upon feeling success during that state of being.
2. Understand at least the synopsis (especially relevant risks) of any method of intentional perception alteration prior to exercising that alteration.
3. Enter the “shallow end” of intentional perception alteration, and increase intensity of that alteration responsibly and only as fittingly needed.
4. Apply understood remedies against unhealthy stress (i.e. apply work or relaxation as needed to strengthen individual balance) to avoid abusing any intentional perception alteration as a destructive crutch.
