Dr William L Courtney believes that non-heated cannabis is a vegetable. He refers to it as a “dietary essential.” There are references to anti-inflammatory effects. Although I have never used cannabis this short video about RAW cannabis almost had me wanting to grow some for dietary purposes – until I realised that this might cause heat-seeking helicopters to be hovering overhead.
If raw cannabis is entirely non-psychoactive then why do we ban a potentially helpful herb? Why indeed?
(Some may fear freaked-out hippies high on heated herbs. But perhaps we should ask ourselves if Amsterdam (with coffee shops) is so unsafe – despite the lack of proliferation of CCTV coverage which the Isle of Man can boast?).
