Are you concerned about the growing number of cannabis shops in your neighbourhood?
You shouldn’t be. The contents of these little shops are helping people of all ages lead happier, healthier and more productive lives. The pills you pick up at the pharmacy without a second thought for yourself and your loved ones may be far more dangerous, and with the monitored and moderate use of THC and/or CBD, you might be able to eliminate some of those monthly prescriptions altogether! Don’t worry about a shop being near a school, as kids can’t see in the door, let alone buy any of the products. And keep in mind that kids have been selling pot to one another for decades- at least this is safe and regulated, and isn’t laced with anything questionable. The “budtenders” are typically well trained, knowledgeable, informative and cautious.
The chemical components of cannabis include CBD and THC. The high comes from the THC, which can help reduce pain, but CBD doesn’t have the high many people want to avoid when dealing with the general public.. It DOES, however, impact the brain, making it function better. More health benefits of cannabis are being discovered all the time, now that governments all over the world are finally realizing how insane it was to criminalize this medicinal plant in the first place. Although research has been allowed, off and on, over the past few decades, the freedom to truly discover the magic of this “weed” is growing, and with it, widespread use and appreciation. There are still haters out there, but that is mainly due to a lack of education, or brainwashing throughout generations of people who wrongfully believe that marijuana is no different than crack or heroin.
Of the chemical compounds in cannabis, the many cannabinoids have been proven to provide relief from chronic pain. The use of medical cannabis is quite effective in many patients who would have otherwise been prescribed opiates, which are highly addictive. For decades, doctors weren’t allowed to prescribe medical cannabis, and those who could benefit from it feared legal repercussions, so they opted for dangerous opiates instead. The misinformation and propaganda that led to the criminalization of marijuana so long ago is likely a big part of the reason there is an opioid pandemic today
Cancer patients aren’t the only ones who can benefit from medical marijuana while undergoing the nausea and loss of appetite that comes with chemotherapy and the pain of radiation. The treatment for hepatitis C has similar side effects that include nausea, fatigue, depression, and muscle aches. Cannabis can help reduce the side effects while making treatment more effective at the same time. There is even evidence to suggest that cannabis can help fight certain types of cancer.
Multiple sclerosis is one of many diseases or disorders that lead to painful muscle contractions. These painful symptoms can be reduced with the use of cannabis. It has been associated with glaucoma treatment for decades, as it helps temporarily relieve the painful pressure on the eyes associated with the condition. The endocannabinoid in cannabis contains anti-inflammatories that don’t only work on the eyes and body, but the brain as well. Diseases like Alzheimer’s, and even aging itself, leads to cognitive degeneration and inflammation of the brain that can be slowed with the use of cannabis. These anti-inflammatories work all over the body, and the use of CBD and THC are effective for arthritis and muscle pain when used internally or rubbed over the affected areas in the form of a cream or balm.
Seizure disorders including epilepsy can be treated with CBD. A growing number of patients and parents of children with extreme and regular seizures are finding that CBD has changed and improved the quality of life for themselves and their loved ones.
Regarding mood disorders,from anxiety and depression, to extreme mood swings as a result of autism, users find that cannabis can help them calm down and control how they feel- the feeling of anxiety that some patients get from use can be curbed by moderating and monitoring the dosage. It is also often effective in sleep disorders. It can help sufferers of ADD/ADHD improve focus and cognitive performance, which is much safer than prescribing drugs that are commonly sold on the street instead of actually used by the patient. In addition, patients with PTSD from various traumas experience a “fight or flight” response when they are triggered. Cannabis calms the individual, preventing the reaction from getting out of control. According to Bone Research Laboratory in Tel Aviv, cannabis actually helps heal bones and helps strengthen the bone in the process of healing, making it less likely for the patient to break the bone a second time.
Addiction- Those suffering from withdrawal, or still tempted to reach for a bottle or a needle to escape the world around them can reach for cannabis instead, which is FAR safer and less addictive. The long-term effects may include a reduction in cravings for riskier substances, as cannabis is effective for nausea and can aid in sleep deprivation.
The list goes on and on…increased lung capacity, help with tremors from Parkinson’s, gut-healing properties, the regulation and prevention of insulin and therefore diabetes and weight gain, and overall FUN in the right environment with a pizza on the way!
Don’t turn your nose up at this incredible plant. Talk to your doctor to see if cannabis can benefit you and your loved ones and then visit your nearest budtender or CBD dealer for guidance, details and relief from all that ails you, mind, body and soul!

Canadian Officials’ Twitter Accounts Flagged by US State Department
Twitter accounts used by the Canadian government have been caught in the U.S. government dragnet attempting to counter online disinformation, a recent iteration of the so-called Twitter Files released by journalist Matt Taibbi reveals.
Taibbi published a new thread on Jan. 3 which provides further details on how the U.S. government and its agencies interacted with Twitter to pursue its agenda. Internal company files are being released since Elon Musk took over in late October.
Taibbi’s latest thread is labelled “Twitter and the FBI ‘Belly Button,’” in reference to the bureau asking Twitter whether it should be the main point of contact between “industry partners” and the U.S. government (USG).
The mention of a Canadian link was in relation to a campaign by the U.S. State Department’s Global Engagement Center (GEC) to counter Chinese propaganda.
The stated mission of the GEC is to counter foreign propaganda and disinformation that runs counter to U.S. interests.
“When the State Department/GEC – remember this was 2020, during the Trump administration – wanted to publicize a list of 5,500 accounts it claimed would ‘amplify Chinese propaganda and disinformation’ about COVID, Twitter analysts were beside themselves,” wrote Taibbi.
“The GEC report appeared based on DHS [Department of Homeland Security] data circulated earlier that week, and included accounts that followed ‘two or more’ Chinese diplomatic accounts. They reportedly ended up with a list ‘nearly 250,000’ names long, and included Canadian officials and a CNN account.”
Taibbi provided screenshots of purported internal conversations of Twitter staff related to the GEC request.
Senior legal executive Stacia Cardille sent an email to policy director Nick Pickles on May 7, 2020, providing “transmittal information” from the State Department.
“We are providing these 5,500 accounts that display inorganic behavior and follow two or more of the 36 Chinese diplomatic twitter accounts that we have identified in the report,” reads the message.
“Due to the fact that these accounts follow two or more of these diplomatic accounts, and a good portion of them are newly created, we believe they are suspicious.”
The State Department did not request any action to be taken on those accounts and said the information was being shared for “situational awareness.”
Previous iterations of the Twitter Files have shown U.S. government agencies requested the social media company take action against accounts sharing information on COVID-19 which diverges from the U.S. government’s view or that related to the elections, with ensuing censorship in many cases.
Later on May 7, 2020, Pickles commented in an email to an unidentified interlocutor on the GEC request.
“I am assuming that the policy/comms folks on their side [USG] haven’t reviewed the list line by line, so curious how they’d react if told their analytics colleagues had included the Canadian military and CNN…” he wrote.
The day after receiving the information from the State Department, Twitter was pushing back in the media on the claims that its platform was being used to spread Chinese disinformation.
CNN reported Twitter as saying that an initial review of the over 5,000 accounts did not support the government’s claims and that many accounts belonged to “government entities, nongovernmental organizations, and journalists.”
“The GEC provided Twitter with a small sample of the overall dataset that included nearly 250,000 accounts,” a State Department spokesperson told CNN, adding that it’s “not surprising that there are authentic accounts in any sample.”
“Our overall analysis is based on a confluence of factors that drive our assessment, which we stand by.”
Then Twitter head of safety Yoel Roth commented in an email to colleagues on May 6, 2020, that the GEC “blitz” on the issue was “at least in part an attempt to insert themselves into the conversations we’ve had with DHS, FBI, ODNI [Office of the Director of National Intelligence], and others.”
A month later, Roth emailed Cardille and others saying that Twitter, Facebook, and Google found the involvement of the GEC in a meeting between industry and government on election security problematic.
He said this was in part because of the GEC’s “mandate for offensive IO [information operations] to promote American interests” and their sharing of reports “based on shaky methodology.”
Taibbi’s thread also highlighted the GEC’s attempt to counter Russian disinformation, noting a report it released in February 2020.
“The GEC flagged accounts as ‘Russian personas and proxies’ based on criteria like, ‘Describing the Coronavirus as an engineered bioweapon,’ blaming ‘research conducted at the Wuhan institute,’ and ‘attributing the appearance of the virus to the CIA,’” he wrote.
Taibbi said this report “still led directly” to some media picking up the story.

Public Health Canada to Collect Online Data to Target the Vaccine Hesitant
The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has announced a contract with a social media intelligence collection firm based in the U.K. to obtain data on vaccine hesitant individuals in order to be able to deliver targeted messaging to break through their hesitancy, contract details indicate.
“In preparation for increased vaccination education, promotion, and outreach, The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is requiring the services of a consultant to analyze the vaccine related conversations on social media and PHAC social media initiative and campaign performance,” says the tender notice description posted online on Dec. 22.
The notice says the contract will be awarded to U.K.-based Pulsar Platform if no other supplier submits a bid meeting the requirements before the closing date. The estimated value of the contract is $339,000.
Pulsar describes itself as an “audience intelligence company” using artificial intelligence and “smart human minds” to comb through conversational and behavioural data on social media.
The notice says the consultant will need to analyze Twitter and other online sites and platforms spanning three years of historical data.
PHAC is seeking to obtain information on individuals who are participating in and influencing online conversations about vaccination.
It wants reports produced by the consultant to “provide PHAC an actionable understanding of the vaccine conversation landscape online and the conversation participants, while determining a conversation baseline,” according to the Statement of Work.
Once this data is obtained, PHAC will run a tailored messaging campaign, which it says will seek to target “communities of interest,” such as “indigenous peoples and millennial males,” states the Advance Contract Award Notice.
The study is to be rerun within a three to four month period to “monitor shifts in attitudes and confidence levels,” says the notice.
PHAC lays out how the consultant must conduct its work, including the establishment of a “keyword-based social listening tracker to capture social media conversations around vaccinations in Canada.”
Data must also be parsed along conversation themes such as “experiences with long Covid, previous vaccine side effects, engaging with mis/disinformation, shift in perceived risk of infection.”
PHAC also seeks to obtain a breakdown of reasons for vaccine hesitancy for different regions and cities to allow more targeted messaging.
Along with identifying regions, cities, and subgroups such as First Nations communities, PHAC is also requesting segmentations of key audiences to include “demographics, interests, affinities, online behaviours, and the leading topics of vaccine hesitancy conversation, per each sub-community.”
The Statement of Work provides an example of what the consultant should do once a sub-community has been identified.
It says that once a community of “Toronto University Students that indicate low confidence in vaccinations” has been identified, then some factors should be investigated.
These include their reasons for being hesitant and the topics of their conversations, the media they consume and the content they share, and the tone they use when discussing their vaccination status.
The Epoch Times contacted PHAC to find out if previous such programs have been implemented and to learn more about how the data from private individuals will be protected, exploited, and if it will be shared with other departments.
PHAC was also asked whether it consulted the Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC) on the program. A response was not obtained before publication time.
The OPC was also contacted to know whether it was aware of PHAC’s social media collection program, but a response was not received immediately.
PHAC has been embroiled in a data collection-related controversy in recent months when it was revealed it was analyzing the anonymized movement of millions of Canadians through the tracking of their cellphones, unbeknownst to them.
PHAC had been obtaining the data from carrier Telus and other cellphone tracking companies, but in December 2021 it sought a contractor to directly access data from cellphone towers to conduct its analysis.
The data has been used to measure the compliance of Canadians while provinces implemented COVID-19 lockdowns.
When this became known, MPs started examining the issue and the Commons ethics committee told the government last spring that Canadians should be allowed to opt out of the data collection program.
The OPC also said it was investigating the matter, but the results have yet to be announced.
PHAC and the OPC have been asked about the status of the contract and the investigation.
