The Cannabis Papers a Citizen's Guide to CannabinoidsSalem-News.com
Any student of history can tell you we are not the first Americans to confront untruths.
(CHICAGO) - This is a book project called The Cannabis Papers: a citizen's guide to cannabinoids. It is written by "Publius" - a pen name once used by the founders and redrafted by the folks at Illinois NORML.
The book's essays will be released first online and then published together later this year. The latest release is essay #15 The Birth of the ECS.
Part One: LIFE
Part Two: LIBERTY
Any student of history can tell you we are not the first Americans to confront untruths. To voice our truth through language, to create a new set and setting, we turned to a collection of essays known as The Federalist Papers.
During 1787 and 1788, James Madison, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton wrote 85 essays in support of the US Constitution. They used the pen name "Publius" in honor of a famed Roman republican - someone they saw as a defender of liberty.
We are "Publius" in 2010 for the same purpose - to make our sum greater than our individual parts. In doing so, we have created a series of essays to detail the role of cannabinoids in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The essays take truths like "all human beings - in fact all mammals - use cannabinoids" and offers suggestions and ideas on how this will effect reform in the immediate future. Simply stated, cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system modulate other systems within the human body - and that fact alone represents a revolution in how we will soon be thinking about nature and cannabinoids.
