The Final Countdown

Ok, team. Huddle.

This marks one week ’til my flight departs to Bamako and I couldn’t be more excited!  My trip has already been postponed a few weeks but now it’s really coming around the corner.  Now that I have finally upgraded my ESL certification from 60 to 100 hours, my preparations have just about come together.  Now it comes down to packing the rest of my random trinkets into my carry-on bags and meeting up one last time with all my favorite people.  At this point, there’s nothing but excitement flowing through my veins!

As my departure creeps into focus, I am excited for so much!  On my end of the stick, I’ll be starting a new adventure in a new place, which is destined to be awesome (in its original sense), of that I have no doubt.  However on the other end, back home in the States, excitement lies on the horizon as well!  October and November will bring new laws into play and others to be voted on that will no doubt have a profound effect.  New regulations regarding previously illicit substances as new medicines are on the rise!  American people and money will be saved by the boatload!  Successes will be reported, analyzed, and repeated!  ENTIRE INDUSTRIES ARE BEING BORN!  If you are not excited for this time we find ourselves in, you’re not paying attention.

The cannabis movement is of course at the forefront of this new wave of alternative medicines being (re)introduced into the mainstream.  Now that people know how successfully Colorado has handled this change we will start to see the dominoes fall.  Thanks to people like my good friend Mr. Kander, with his 150 page comprehensive report on the cannabis extract movement (www.cannabisextractreport.com), people are starting to fight, treat, and CURE all different types of diseases and ailments, including cancer and diabetes!  I’m not saying cannabis is the answer.  All I’m saying is that there is enough evidence out there to warrant doing research of your own if you are interested or concerned.

Now that the medical cannabis movement has begun to take off there is even more research being done on even more alternative medicines, like LSD and it’s effects on addiction, Psilocybin and it’s effects on depression and coping with terminal illness, and MDMA and it’s profound effects treating PTSD.  The ball is rolling, people!  The alternative medicine movements have been revitalized and anyone who opposes it is doomed to be crushed under the bulldozer of this entire new alternative medicine industry.  Get in on the ground level now people, this will change every industry from medicine to textiles to energy.

The time has come to strip away the blinders strapped to our faces by big pharmaceuticals and the health insurance industry and take our health back into our own hands.  Fresh grown, GMO-free gardens and dumpster diving are reminding people that food is, in fact dirty, and that that’s okay!  People are beginning to see that the only difference between drug dealers and doctors are their levels of support from the state.  People are starting to see that the answer may not simply come in a pill, and that cannabis might not actually be as dangerous as heroin.  In addition, we are already feeling the effects of public welfare cuts from last winter (<http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/cuts-food-stamps-hit-states-25557899&gt;).  Those walking the line between survival and starvation are beginning to hurt.  Soon we will see more people reach for opportunities like crime to feed their families.  However, with the rise of dumpster divers, food co-ops and community gardens, people are also reaching for new ways to help each other.

Winter is coming, and with it will no doubt come even more pain for a great many, but there is much being done out there to keep our communities together. These invisible knights are out there fighting for us all, and you can bet I’ll be watching from my little desert across the seas. 😉

Onward and upward.
