I see “Cannabis” as representative of the larger subject and discussion our visitors and fellow citizens are having on the subject. My intention behind the combination with the term “Animus” represents my own motivations and angst over how our Federal government has treated my fellow Americans since long before my generation really put the Federal Government’s silly propaganda to the test.
Definition: AN-I-MUS, 1) hostility, or ill feeling 2) motivation to do something
While you and I can clearly see the attempts at distortion and misinformation, the Federal Government including both bi-party system leaders continue with their close to century old lies and obfuscations surrounding “marijuana” including their donors’ demands to protect their industries which would quickly prove uncompetitive in the presence of 100% sustainable hemp industry alternatives for medicines, bio-fuels, clothing… all of which harness greater economies of scale.
It’s also now clear that the last two U.S. Presidents have publicly acknowledged State-licensed Medical Cannabis Patient Rights and States’ Rights in general when it comes to the criminalization of marijuana’s use, personal cultivation, or even research on the medical benefits of Cannabis products. It clearly shows us how ineffective a President can be – all talk and no action.
Undeterred, I’ve regained my animus, and I’m betting on the side of us Americans. Call me crazy, but I’m voting with my pen. I believe our pens harness the potential of being proven even more powerful and effective than President Obama’s pen ever was… I wonder if he still has it?
