Life lessons

Mardi Grass and Prohibition

In the first weekend in May is Australia’s biggest Cannabis Law reform rally, Mardi Grass. There are workshops, smoke ins, entertainment and food. It’s a great weekend in Nimbin so book your accommodation now.

This year I will be appearing as one of the MC’s and filling in some of the “in between space” with interesting bits and pieces of poetry along the lines of Helping to End Marijuana Prohibition.  The following piece was written during one of the weekend Medical Cannabis workshops that are held quarterly in Nimbin.

Here’s a poem called medicine

If you were the parent of a child who was sick would you give Cannabis to your son named Rick

If you were the wife of a man with cancer would you give cannabis as a life enhancer.

If you see a doctor and you knew a cure pharmaceutical poisons or a herb that’s pure.

If alcohol does harm but healing why are they dropping cannabis dealing.

If an healing Herb heals not harms why does the government twist our arms.
