Cannabinoids modulate life. Cannabis (marijuana) makes cannabinoids. The Cannabis Papers: a citizen’s guide to cannabinoids, unites these two facts. Under the influence of America’s revolutionary ideals, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, one learns that cannabinoids: * regulate and safeguard pregnancy * grow and protect brain cells * heal and maintain all biological systems * and kill cancer cells Cannabinoids are best described as “nature’s healthcare plan.” The authors of The Cannabis Papers, using “Publius” as their penname, begin with the fact that all humans (even all mammals) use cannabinoids. This defines and highlights the genetic role of cannabinoids in human development (from conception to death). The medical marijuana movement has rightly promoted cannabis as a way to supplement one’s cannabinoid system. Not everyone is a patient though. Because cannabinoids are fundamental to life, The Cannabis Papers shows why we should protect and not prohibit a citizen’s right to possess cannabis. Clearly, the right to preserve one’s health is the right to self-defense. Modeled on the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence, The Cannabis Papers is also a call for change. Victory in the drug war is the repeal of Nixon’s 1970 Controlled Substances Act. Like Nixon, you can’t reform something corrupt – his law must go.
