Cannabis Tyranny Violating Individual Liberty


There are some extremely harsh penalties around the world for victimless crimes like using cannabis, even if you are using it for medicinal reasons. We are hearing again about this reality now with the case of Britt Griner who has recently been sentenced to over 9 years for cannabis.

No individual should be punished in this way for cannabis, not if you believe that individuals have an inherent right to peaceful consumption. What someone chooses to put into their own body does not bring harm to anyone else. If they haven't harmed anyone or their property, how are they a threat to any community or individual? Why must they be caged as if they are, and families broken up as a result? This is what some might describe as tyranny being exercised via outdated draconian drug laws.

Many regions around the world today still don't respect this basic consumption right or possession right etc. Through this restriction on individual choices you could argue that the state holds more authority over your body than you do, in telling you what you cannot put into your body even if it doesn't harm anyone else.

The tyranny is clear when it comes to sentencing peaceful individuals to any time behind bars, labeling them as criminals because of a plant. It is unfortunate that many people around the world in Russia and right in the US as well, have had to face such violence in response to peaceful choices they've made involving plants like this.

Yeah, here at Brazil we argue that if there is no victim, there is no crime. There is a judgment in the supreme court here rolling for some years, so far they voted to get consumption free, but not home growings or sellings... Its paused due to some political circunstances, president wouldn't pass it anyway because he is a dumb militiaman... Another argue used is that it goes against the fundamental law of freedom of choices... So yeah, at most its an self injury (which is not even the case lol). And for what I know the tributation on that is also directed to health treatment on psychological dependence (not chemical), and also for helping others drugs users... So yeah, makes no sense.

The recent Griner-Russia thing has been blowing up on TikTok. So maybe this will rile up the activists in the US.

An opportunity for libertarians and cannabis advocates.

In my country marijuana was used by many people many years ago, it caused men who did not go to work to become addicted to drugs. Running out of money to bring home furniture to sell. Without furniture, they steal and steal to have money to satisfy their own addiction. And there are so many things happening in my country that the country and the government have banned the cultivation and use of marijuana

Mobs will always want to ban things but that doesn't make it right.

cannabis is medicinal to millions of people and has been used as such for thousands of years.

all over the world cannabis has HELPED bring VALUE to children, seniors, veterans struggling with pain and PTSD, teachers, working professionals, athletes, stay at home moms, and many others. It can help children to stop having seizures, isn't that incredible??? that a plant can do this? I think so! and i dont think anyone should be caged or punished because of it.
