"420 in my Dreams" (original song)
A glimpse at the culture of cannabis activism. I captured this unscripted moment in 2017, as part of grassroots street activism I was doing. Our goal was to raise awareness that Canada's coming "legalization" was just a corporate monopoly backed by even harsher prohibition against the free market.

After years of successful peaceful activism, we were attacked by the media, city officials, and police in 2018. We were disbanded to make way for "legalization". We proved it's safe to produce, sell, and use cannabis without any involvement (like regulation) from government. The people seen in this video were beaten to the pavement and charged with bogus non-crimes, because legalization is a lie.
I still regard this as one of best things I've ever done with my life, as does my wife MediKatie. Protest is not only our right as free people, it is our DUTY.
BIG love and respect to everybody who stood with me (or in their wheelchairs) as we held off the tyrannical state's advance, and bought time for our fellow human.
Ron Woodruff on the mic. Elvis Nelson on guitar and backup vocals, with his band Jango. This took place in the middle of Robson Street. It was organized by the people seen here, on a budget of $0. We did this AT LEAST every Saturday, often more. We had 20+ vendor booths, and people came from miles away (including WA state) to get real cannabis medicine - flower, extracts, edibles of all kinds, topicals, seeds, and more. The only thing that could stop us, was cannabis becoming "legalized".

I miss those days. The points in my life that I felt the most free, and powerful, were the times I was fighting the hardest for freedom, against the most powerful of enemies.
I wish Cyprus had legal weed

Correction: You wish weed wasn't illegal in Cyprus.
Completely different. Polar opposites.
Be very careful what you wish for!
Yes you are right 😂 😂 😂 😂 I can't wait to go Amsterdam again
Thailand is moving away from the corporate culture with cannabis and now allowing Thai nationals to grow up to 6 plants for personal use, or to sell back to the state for product preparation. Even the government hospital's Cannabis Clinic will supply CBD oil for under $15. Organic.
I'm really glad to be living in Thailand most days. Funnily enough on my calendar today is to register for the Medical Cannabis Summit here in April. They're also starting a national 420 Day here this year as an information and health/wellness festival. Stay tuned for incoming posts. LOL..
Organic CBD oil for $15 a gram is great. THC is required for a lot of disorders, and types of cancer, but CBD is certainly helpful. It's good they are allowing people to grow a few plants, but why should any state stop any person from growing plants, at all? The entire idea is silly. People should be ENCOURAGED to grow plants! It's all about control, still. If we were free, we wouldn't need permission to grow plants, period. But I'm happy things are better in some ways than they were. We have to count our blessings.

Awesome song that you selected.
Respect to the activists!
Cool tune. This is likely the only recording of it. :)
Those really were "the days"! We kind of knew it, at the time. Nothing like that can last forever.
