In the "Apple" create "hemp" fraction

November 20 2006

Unregistered League legalization of hemp, which now includes 15 people can join the ranks of the liberal Yabloko party. Moreover, form the basis of a new party faction under the name "nonconformist". It must combine the extravagant social movements and groups that are not yet paying attention to other policies.

League legalization of cannabis, which is headed by Dmitry Zlotnikov, well known as the initiator of the so-called Moscow "Hemp march" in support of the idea of legalizing marijuana. This year, the capital city council has banned the holding of such a procession in the Arbat and the Boulevard Ring. It is worth noting that the organizers of the march said its share 2,000 people.

Instead, on May 7 near the fountain "Friendship of Peoples" at VVC, is decorated in the leaves of hemp, were unauthorized "hemp festivities. They had seen the youth leader of Yabloko, Ilya Yashin and his long-standing "politpodruga Irina Vorobyev. Incidentally, in his "LiveJournal" Ilya Yashin, talking about his frequent trips to London and Amsterdam, mentioned a visit cafes and other establishments where they could smoke marijuana. Reviews of these establishments, as well as on the public, there assembled, were the most benevolent. That is why Yashin, who is now in favor with the leader of Yabloko, Yavlinsky is clearly not averse to join the ranks of the party advocates the legalization of marijuana - people are mostly not poor and intelligent.

"The problem of legalization of marijuana and the free cultivation of cannabis have long passed into the political arena - has told us the chairman of the League of legalizing hemp Dmitry Zlotnikov. - For all their appeals, we always use an article about cannabis, taken from the Great Soviet Encyclopedia, published in the 30-ies the last century. Then hemp actively cultivated and used in the national economy, and noble konoplevodov awarded titles and medals. In this article, it follows that cannabis is useful in medicine.

We believe that the official medicine has not provided any evidence of harm of marijuana for health. But many believe that it has beneficial effects on the psyche, especially in stressful situations, which makes people kinder and more peaceful. Only that there were confirmed reports that during the recent Lebanon war, Israeli army soldiers allowed to smoke marijuana to relieve stress.

Another evidence of marijuana use is the creation of Bob Marley and based their song style of reggae. Those mellifluous tones soothe the nerves and, indeed, give the rest of the hateful reality.

League legalization of cannabis does not offer to do so immediately. We stand for an open discussion of the problem, including at the level of high politics. If the "Apple" will offer us in our ranks, we are likely to be so decided. Personally, I have long been lovely this party, which takes care of those in other parties are sent directly from the doorway. There are environmental group and watchdog group. Their synthesis and may be nonconformist faction, to help the voice of those who go against the flow, but wants only good for people, what they still do not understand. "

However, many scientists do not share the views of Mr. Zlotnikov on the harmlessness of marijuana and the prospects for its legalization. Indeed, in the beginning and middle of last century, marijuana, as well as a number of other psychoactive substances such as cocaine and LSD-25, used in medicine, including psychiatry. But further studies showed that the harm from their health much more than good. That is why in 1972 the UN adopted a special document on the prohibition of psychoactive substances, including marijuana, and pervasive control of their production and distribution.And cultivation of hemp, except for technical grades, were outlawed.
