Before you start thinking ‘what the’ there is a strong positive message Angry wants to portray with this rock track! With an eye towards the future and a product, we should all be supporting 'Realise Legalise’ stands firmly on this terra firma.
“Brothers and Sisters, we are living in strange and therefore exciting times, as to this, there can be no doubt! Depression, anxiety, and the fear of the future go hand in hand with the promise of a better world that we can all play a part in creating. We are constantly bombarded with talk of sustainability, conservation, preservation, and a growing acceptance of a dependency on renewables!
Renewables! Just what are renewables? I hear voices asking. Some would call them gifts from God. Some would quite rightly refer to them as gifts from nature, the creational process, the provider, they are, put simply, that which comes from the natural realm. From Mother Nature herself! They are Earth, Wind, Water, and Sunshine! Truly gifts, from the Divine!
It is with this spirit of embracing that which is natural to further the comfort and well-being of humanity and in the spirit of true debate that I want to play a small part in opening the conversation around the utilization of one of Nature's gifts, the genus Cannabis.
Launching a new solo project/band, l was energized to revisit and then continue a personal journey, crusade if you like, that started many years ago. ln recent years I have been inspired by personal relationships with people from all around our homeland as they struggled to gain access to medicinal cannabis to relieve their own suffering or that of a loved one, also I came across a book written by a doctor, Dr. Teresa Towpik, which I urge all interested to seek out and read, her book, 'lntroduction to Medicinal Cannabis, An Easy Guide For Doctors and Patients', enlightened and educated me to the amazing contribution medicinal cannabis does and can make when medically provided.
There are many more worthwhile uses for genus cannabis in the manufacturing sector which would gift us with products that are sustainable and therefore renewable, prime example it could, I’m advised, revolutionize the manufacture of paper, cardboard and, building materials and even replace plastic.
Why then are we afraid to open honest debate into Cannabis? A gift from the past that can benefit our future.
l, for one, am not afraid.” - Angry Anderson.
