Ep #439 – Professor Lester Grinspoon – His Journey With Marijuana & Why It Should Be Fully Legalized

Shares

Dr. Lester Grinspoon joined us today to talk about one of my favorite topics in the entire world….cannabis. Some people call it hash, pot or even marijuana.

There is no doubt in my mind that this is the most powerful plant on the entire planet. There are others that might be comparable in power (like the ayuasca vine and leaves) but nothing can do what the hemp plant can do.

Marijuana has over 135 strains (with new ones discovered and created almost daily) and over 5,000 uses.

Can you believe one plant can make concrete, paints, plastics, clothing, glass and even medicines in various forms? People have juiced the leaves of it, turned it into oils for helping the body to reverse catastrophic disease and more.

As I mentioned during the show some shocking statistics are coming out of Colorado. Violent crime has been reduced, there are less traffic tickets and accidents and the state has made hundreds of millions of dollars from marijuana being taxed.

It must be 100% legal to grow and consume this wonderful God given plant. It is the only plant that has the chance to save the planet. It’s only a matter of time until people in posistions of power get behind what cannabis can do.

There is no stopping it. People are waking up. Now we just need policy makers and law makers to put their little thinking caps on and get creative with revenue generation.

The one thing in its way is you guessed it, private companies and lobbyists who don’t want this powerful plant to be legal. If marijuana is legalized then those companies must figure out a way to continue to exist.

Who is going to consume pharmecutical drugs that damage the liver and vital organs when they can get 100% better from smoking or ingesting marijuana leaves or edibles?

People are going to have to start getting creative if they want to stay in business because whether they like it or not, times are changing and people are interested in natural medicine and alternative health now more than ever. They are demanding full and complete access to this plant and nothing is going to change that.

We live in wild times.

Dr. Lester Grinspoon shares his experience with not just using marijuana but also writing books about it and how it has helped many people in his own life.

I hope you enjoy this episode with Professor Lester Grinspoon on why cannabis should be legalized!

Guest Info:

Dr. Lester Grinspoon is Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Grinspoon was senior psychiatrist at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston for 40 years.

In 1966 I believe marijuana to be a seriously harmful drug. As the doubts about my position grew I felt compelled to find the medical and scientific basis for this prohibition which was responsible for the arrest of thousands, mostly young people, every year. This is a personal story of my involvement in this issue over the last half-century. During this time I published two books on this subject (Marijuana Reconsidered, Harvard University Press, 1971, 1977) and Marijuana, the Forbidden Medicine (Yale University Press, 1993, 1994). I have also published a number of papers on the same subject and appeared in many congressional, state and court hearings.
