Canna the Pen Be Mightier Than the Sword

The pen is mightier than the sword is a phrase that I have never truly understood until recently. As a young man, I always thought you could cut off the head of the person with the pen and it would no longer be strong or mighty. In my eyes, this made the sword mightier. As I’ve grown older and now understand a little more about history as well as life, in general, I see that many individuals have also thought the sword to be mightier than the pen, judging by history.

Though you may be able to cut off the hand that holds the pen or the head that guides it, once those words have been penned, they become immortal. They help to influence others and guide the paths to many different decisions. As a cannabis writer, I read all sorts of material. I’ve started to understand that marijuana prohibition wasn’t just built on ads and propaganda, it was penned. Without the written language supporting marijuana prohibition the propaganda surrounding it would not have been as effective.

Libraries Are Now Online

The world used to revolve around books. Today the world tends to more revolve around the internet. Information leads the way for future generations to determine their path. The internet is an abundant source of information that is helping to connect people around the world. For the first time in our civilization’s history, we’re able to stay up-to-date with occurrences as they happen real-time via the Internet.

The media still has ways of blocking out what we see but they cannot keep it all from us. Cannabis was kept from the people with a negative propaganda which was written for many decades. Together as a collective community, supporters throughout the cannabis lifestyle are helping to teach others about this incredible plant. These teachings are powerful words, helping to break down lies, stereotypes and negative stigmas that have been spread about cannabis.

Thanks to the written word of every article supporting this beautiful culture and community, things are changing. Every writer who takes the time to share factual knowledgeable information pertaining to cannabis is helping to bring that change. With every story that’s covered and every encounter shared we become a step closer to realizing the truth about cannabis.

The Incredible Cannabis Plant

This incredible plant has been kept from the people in order for the elite to control and profit. They’ve profited by selling us poisons from the food we eat to the synthetic medications used to replace cannabis. This is just the beginning. The bigger picture is starting to reveal itself and it shows with cannabis legalization happening across the United States of America, Canada and in other countries around the world.

The attempted eradication of cannabis was almost successful thanks to the penned words of humankind. These words were powerful and influenced many generations into believing that marijuana was the devil’s lettuce. The absurdities that have been written in the process of trying to discredit cannabis to the world are truly bold lies that took decades of repetition to be effectively utilized in helping brainwash millions.

Through written knowledge and factual information about cannabis, we can help change the planet. Is cannabis the solution for every problem? No. Will it save your life? Quite possibly. When we try to find answers such as these there will always be an argument to both sides that stands solid. Cannabis does offer a higher quality of life for many compared to one full of prescription medications.

When it comes to pharmaceutical prescriptions they are not all bad, however, unfortunately, those who control the monetary side of medicine have obviously abused their authority and power for way too long. We as a people collectively together are smarter than this and will help change the world by using our pens and our words to defeat the swords of evil corporations, governments, and private special interest groups.
