“Modern medical research has discovered beneficial uses for cannabis in treating or alleviating pain, nausea, and other symptoms associated with certain debilitating medical conditions, as found by the National Academy of Sciences."

“According to the United States Sentencing Commission and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, 99 out of 100 cannabis arrests in the United States are made under state law, rather than under federal law. Consequently, changing State law will have the practical effect of protecting from arrest the vast majority of seriously ill people who have a medical need to use cannabis.”

Above are the opening two paragraphs of North Carolina House Bill 185, short title, “Legalize Medical Marijuana”.  

Modern Medical Research has not discovered anything new or otherwise.  All modern medical research has discovered is that the empirical evidence developed by their community is now so overwhelmingly in support of the 9000 years of traditional knowledge regarding cannabis that to continue to deny fact would destroy their reputation as a body of intellectual honesty.  

Now that the medical community, the scientific community and the people of the state (see the results of the Elon College poll on medical cannabis on the next page) are aligned as a single voice in support of medical cannabis, the general assembly has no correct course other than to declare a total moratorium on all cannabis related arrests and prosecutions until this matter is resolved to the satisfaction of all.  As the war on drugs was undeniably a formally declared war (see Richard Nixon, 1973) failure to “cease fire” as a result of this “new” information would expose every legislator to questions as to whether failing, on their part, to stop the continuing arrests and prosecutions of cannabis users would constitute terrorism and or war crimes.   

If cannabis is, as the medical community, the scientific community and the people of the state all agree, in fact, good for ones’ health to consume,  does the government have the right to restrict human access to the plant? The answer is no.

The governments mandate is to regulate the commercial aspects of cannabis trade and provide a level playing field for those involved in the trade. When the label and advertising of cannabis commercial product claims that it cures cancer, does it? If the label claims the product is organically grown, non-gmo, mold and pesticide free is it? If the table claims the product is 20% THC and 10% CBD, is it?
If the government is going to allow corporations to manufacture cannabis products for profit then not allowing the individual to manufacture and possess the same for himself is an unfair trade practice and discriminatory unless the individual were to enter commerce and sell the product he produced.

Legislation is a contract between the governors and the governed. From the Declaration of Independence, “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”  We consent to legislation.  House Bill 185 is a preliminary contract between the two parties outlining the terms of the agreement.  The problem is that the terms outlined at this moment in time are not necessarily those that will exist in the final form.  While we will comment about this preliminary Article our consent to be governed by it will not be issued until we have seen the final product.

There are items within this agreement that are, from the peoples side, non negotiable.  If these items do not appear, as proposed, in the final product the NCCPN will reject the whole of the agreement.
