Saddening ... Perhaps they should protest against the social enslavement = being slaves to their jobs . When society find acceptable to work 7 days in a week 13 hours in a day or more, no vacations , etc.. then they perhaps must also accept the consequences of such unbalanced choices: No private life, no family ... etc. Sadly in this case no one wins, not the sate ( fewer births, increasing suicides, decreasing/ ageing population ... ) nor the individual ( loneliness, unfulfilled feeling of its existence, despair ) . One would have hard time to believe that's the place where the " middle way " is written in Spiritual Buddhist Japanese Traditions ; and which the west continue to admire even today.

People of Japan are over exploited / overworked ( equal of third world countries = slavery). There are some laws which limit the time of work but no one really follow them ( companies use intimidation and blackmail on their employed to avoid respecting those laws). There's no personal time, no value for family ... etc. How a man ( woman) who work over 14- 15 hours a day ( and sometime more), can even find the time and the physical ability to relax, to have romance/ private enjoyment and to fulfill basic human needs / duties ? **

You have the right to refuse and to opt for a manual patting down by a trained security man or woman. Some people with grave illnesses, or who care about their health, can refuse an additional radiation intake. I do . I took it only one time and after only 45 minutes I had intense headache, dizziness , abdominal spasms and nausea. It was enough to convince me to avoid it.

Sometime people in public positions or political positions cannot divulge their real health conditions. It will make them look unfit for positions of responsibility. This woman may have a good reason for using such medicine. What saddens me still, is that anyone could feel entitled to judge another person for taking the right ( human right ), to make personal choices related to their health and well being. Pain,chronic or temporar, is a serious debilitating problem for many, too many.

Can one explain how a drug in which there's NOT one drop / trace of the natural plant named CANNABIS / Marijuana in it, is misleadingly named " SYNTHETIC MARIJUANA " ? Why associating a dangerous chemical ( an underground human fabrication ), with a natural plant that is very well known for its safety? What is the TRUTH ? -->>>

SPICE ," also known as "K2" or "potpourri," is a synthetic "marijuana"( misleading official name) made from fertilizer from China, mixed with lettuce leaves. ( sometime mixed with PCP - http://www.drugfree.org/drug-guide/pcp/The drug, five times more powerful than cannabis plant, causes agitation, confusion, hallucinations, vomiting and, in some cases, heart attacks and even comas, according to CBS2. We need over and over again be reminded by the scientific recorded studies THAT : "Because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur."> source : NATIONAL CANCER INSTITUTE http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/hp/cannabis-pdq#section/all FACT : SPICE aka K2, aka misleading name-> " Synthetic Marijuana " has nothing to do with the Cannabis plant . Legalize the real medicinal plant, regulate it as other legal intoxicants ( ie. tobacco , alcohol etc ..), and we will all be more safe and healthy as a society.

Posted in: Medical marijuana may help with some illnesses but not all See in context

How can Japan so far behind the rest of the world it seem, can keep denying the scientific proof ? Cannabis / Marijuana, is a natural medicinal plant; it can help billions of ill people .They hey are many ways of using safely this plant as medicine - taking in consideration the different strains and potency related to each of them): inhaling ( as in many Israeli hospitals - Israel, one nr one leading in Medicinal Cannabis research since 1960, Netherlands, etc etc ), in in a form of oil, tincture, cream, tea, etc etc ... There's no lack of research on this subject. The documented use of cannabis as a safe and effective therapeutic botanical dates to 2700 BC. Between 1840 and 1900, European and American journals of medicine published more than 100 articles on the therapeutic use of cannabis. In fact, cannabis was part of the American pharmacopoeia until 1942, and is currently available by prescription in Canada, the Netherlands, Israel, and Germany and many other countries... If one care to read the side effects on a "LEGAL" prescribed painkiller, anti inflammatory, anti epileptic , anti tumor, etc, etc drugs, will see that Cannabis ( slang street name Marijuana), is by far one of the safest medicines, non toxic, plant known to mankind. It can help ( supported by official and international researches), with endless illnesses. 700 MEDICINAL USES OF CANNABIS SORTED BY DISEASE : http://www.encod.org/info/700-MEDICINAL-USES-OF-CANNABIS.html more : https://www.marijuanadoctors.com/content/ailments/glossary http://www.cbdfarm.org/knowledge-center/scholarly-articles.html http://www.safeaccessnow.org/asa_condition_based_booklets

More people or less people, will never stop corrupted governments to abuse, manipulate and exploit human beings. Beside the upper class ( which dwell into arts, spirituality, and higher quest), the common people live to the level of cattle . No time to love, no time to wonder of the beauty o life, no time to spend with their families, no time to educate their children to teach them how to care and to love, no time to gasp what is one's purpose on this earth and no time to take care of their health. Let people live and have a little taste of love and life, and they will gladly give back to society.

When someone continue to defend so insistently the Nuclear ( Atomic ) power and ongoing crisis, one should have no doubt who that someone ' work ' for. Agents, paid bloggers, used by Gov. and corporations to confuse and influence the public opinion. "You may already have come across people who display some or all of the following behaviours:

Forum sliding: posting multiple times so that a sensitive topic gets pushed down the thread – ‘out of sight, out of mind’ Consensus cracking: making a post with a very weak premise, then following the post with convincing-looking evidence and disinformation. Uninformed readers are more likely to come round to the original poster’s position Topic dilution: making plenty of irrelevant postings to the same thread and distracting other posters from the topic at hand."

They are so many problems related to Fukushima, and if the common people would know the whole truth, the panic and rage would have extreme consequences for those who have strong interest to control the masses. let's hear some people who do care : Fukushima: Impossible to Remove Melted Fuel & More Problems https://youtu.be/QHu4uFSs_2w

A constant battle between money and power , which as always, leave the vast majority of people who wish only to live in peace and harmony, without a word to say... It seem that they are some who continue to find more acceptable solutions to the energy problem ; just a very small example : http://www.gizmodo.com.au/2015/05/tesla-powerwall-a-battery-for-your-home/ or Solarroadways invented by Scott Brusaw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlTA3rnpgzU http://goo.gl/bRNnVn Hemp as fuel of energy source: It is possible to produce all of our energy with Cannabis Hemp. The unique growing properties of the plant make it the ideal crop for our energy needs. One acre of Cannabis Hemp can produce 1000 gallons of methanol in a single growing season. Any CO2 released from burning Cannabis Hemp would be the same CO2 the plant had already taken from the environment, creating what is called a closed carbon cycle. A closed carbon cycle system of energy production would slow down the effects of global warming, and with well-implemented plant growth could possibly stop global warming entirely. No other plant on earth could meet the needs of global energy consumption, but Cannabis Hemp could. : http://www.hemphasis.net/Fuel-Energy/fuel.htm http://hempethics.weebly.com/hemp-and-sustainability.html Non toxic material made from hemp can replace plastic: http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/01/28/new-plastic-zeoform-turns-hemp-into-almost-anything/ Soil enrichment: The hemp crop grows dense and vigorously. Sunlight cannot penetrate the plants to reach the ground, and this means the crop is normally free of weeds. Its deep roots use ground water and reduce its salinity. Also, erosion of topsoil is limited, thereby reducing water pollution. The roots give nitrogen and other nutrients to the soil. After the harvest, this soil makes excellent compost amendments for other plants, and hemp cultivation can follow the rotation of agriculture with wheat or soybean. In fact, the same soil can be used to grow hemp for many years, without losing its high quality. The hemp plant absorbs toxic metals emitted by nuclear plants into the soil, such as copper, cadmium, lead and mercury. Water and soil purification

Hemp can be used as a "mop crop" to clear impurities out of wastewater, such as sewage effluent, excessive phosphorus from chicken litter, or other unwanted substances or chemicals. Eco-technologist Dr. Keith Bolton from Southern Cross University in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, is a leading researcher in this area. Hemp is being used to clean contaminants at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site. This is known as phytoremediation - the process of clearing radioisotopes as well as a variety of other toxins from the soil, water, and air.[45]

It still painful to keep reading the propaganda related to Cannabis. It's like the glass full or the glass empty. Drug companies are very hard at work... discrediting the single natural plant that have hundreds or more of positive uses. Of course nature is a complex organism and every abuse and lack of knowledge have consequences, as everything : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_poisonous_plants . Someone that have serious mental problems can be exacerbate by everything. Anything can be a trigger. Let's read some good news and true news : 700 and plus Cannabis Studies around the world / Compilation ( since this compilation dozen or more international official studies have be additionally performed : PDF document -->>>> http://marijuanacourses.com/700-cannabis-studies-2012.pdf Follow the propaganda / money : Anti-Cannabis Academics Funded by Prescription Painkiller Manufacturers By Sara Dilley — 9/8/2014 Legalization opponents have turned to academic researchers in an effort to keep prohibition alive. If you’ve tuned into the news recently, you’ve probably heard academics make vague claims that marijuana is too dangerous, too risky, and too untested; that it’s unsafe for medicinal use. You may (or may not) be surprised to learn that many of those key researchers are actually paid by Big Pharma.

This week, VICE proved that the leading academic opponents to cannabis are paid by drug companies who manufacture prescription painkillers. These include professors from Columbia and Harvard Universities, as well as one private practitioner who is certified by the American Society of Addiction Medicine.

Dr. Herbert Kleber of Columbia University has warned against the use of marijuana in the press, citing that it may cause “wide-ranging addiction and public health issues.” What he neglects to mention is that he has served as a paid consultant to leading prescription drug companies, including the maker of OxyContin (Purdue Pharma).

Dr. A. Eden Evins of Harvard Medical School is another anti-cannabis academic with ties to Big Pharma. A member of Project SAM, an anti-marijuana advocacy group, she is also a “consultant for Pfizer and DLA Piper, and has received grant/research support from Envivo, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer.”

This news confirms beliefs long-held by cannabis activists who suspected painkiller manufacturers of financially supporting anti-cannabis legislation, and it’s no surprise. Cannabis is known to effectively treat chronic pain without the dangerous side effects of opiates, as demonstrated by the 25% decrease in painkiller overdoses in states with medical cannabis access.

Posted by Google Plus icon Fuzzie Jenkins on 03/12/2013 in Medical Marijuana Studies

Drug overdose deaths increased for the 11th straight year, federal data shows. Despite growing attention to the risks of prescription pill medicines, most accidents involved the ingestion and overdoes of these pain relievers. A report by the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that pharmaceuticals, especially opioid analgesics, have driven this increase.

In 2010, the CDC reported that there were 38,329 drug overdose deaths nationwide. Medicines, mostly prescription drugs were involved in nearly 60 % of overdose deaths in that year. Opioid drugs such as OxyContin and Vicodin contributed to 3 of the 4 medication overdose fatalities. Anti-anxiety drugs like Valium were another common cause of medication-related deaths, among 17% were suicides."

Because cannabinoid receptors, unlike opioid receptors, are not located in the brainstem areas controlling respiration, lethal overdoses from Cannabis and cannabinoids do not occur.[1-4] However, cannabinoid receptors are present in other tissues throughout the body, not just in the central nervous system, and adverse effects include tachycardia, hypotension, conjunctival injection, bronchodilation, muscle relaxation, and decreased gastrointestinal motility.

Although cannabinoids are considered by some to be addictive drugs, their addictive potential is considerably lower than that of other prescribed agents or substances of abuse.[2,4] The brain develops a tolerance to cannabinoids.

Withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, insomnia with sleep electroencephalogram disturbance, restlessness, hot flashes, and, rarely, nausea and cramping have been observed. However, these symptoms appear to be mild compared with withdrawal symptoms associated with opiates or benzodiazepines, and the symptoms usually dissipate after a few days.

Unlike other commonly used drugs, cannabinoids are stored in adipose tissue and excreted at a low rate (half-life 1–3 days), so even abrupt cessation of cannabinoid intake is not associated with rapid declines in plasma concentrations that would precipitate severe or abrupt withdrawal symptoms or drug cravings." source: http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/healthprofessional/page6

In a mere half century, MacArthur, with the Marijuana Regulation Law [Hemp Control Act], managed to totally wipe away even the memories of hemp culture, which endured for several thousand years after its beginnings in the Jomon Period.” (Yamada 1995)

" Alternate energy.

By 2050, one-third of the world's energy will need to come from solar, wind, and other renewable resources. [...] Alternative energy refers to energy sources that have no undesired consequences such for example fossil fuels or nuclear energy. Alternative energy sources are renewable and are thought to be "free" energy sources. They all have lower carbon emissions, compared to conventional energy sources. These include Biomass Energy, Wind Energy, Solar Energy, Geothermal Energy, Hydroelectric Energy sources. Combined with the use of recycling, the use of clean alternative energies such as the home use of solar power systems will help ensure man's survival into the 21st century and beyond."
