Cannabis on Trial, Fake Protesters and Arguments Against the Truth | Cannabis News Network

A report about the “Trial of the plant” in South Africa, doctors for life, fabricated protesters and excellent testimony of key witness professor David Nutt.

After seven years of preparing, the Trial of the plant is on its way.
Jules Stobbs and Myrtle Clarke are the driving force behind the Constitutional hearing to beat the cannabis prohibition in South Africa with facts.

This unprecedented hearing with expert witnesses in The Pretoria High Court lasts for a month and we are halfway. Their opposition is not only the state of South Africa but also from Doctors for Life, a pro- Christian alliance. A group of people who believe cannabis is as bad or even worse as heroin.

They tried everything to stall the hearing:

https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2017-07-31-dagga-trial-stalled-over-live-streaming-rights/

On their website they urge for international support to fund their legal Battle against the Dagga couple. http://www.doctorsforlife.co.za/pg/

Because of the delays caused by the stalling‚ US oncology professor Donald Abrams‚ didn’t get a change to testify.

Anti-dagga protesters from KwaZulu-Natal‚ who are staying in a Christian rehab Centre, stood outside court from day one. Their protest posters and transport being paid and arranged by The Gauteng Department of Social Development. https://www.timeslive.co.za/news/south-africa/2017-08-14-gauteng-pays-for-protesters-at-dagga-trial/

Inside the courthouse, key witness of the case, Professor David Nutt took to the stand. Nutt is a psychiatrist‚ neurologist and a world expert in the comparative harmful effects of drugs. He worked for the UK government‚ but was fired in 2007 for telling the truth. http://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lancet/PIIS0140-6736(07)60464-4.pdf

The Lancet is one of the world’s oldest and best known general medical journals.

Professor Nutt faced a cross-examination from the state and Doctors for Life advocate Reg Willis to show dagga was more harmful then Nutt had proven in his testimony. All Willis said and brought to the stand, Nutt cracked all his objections.

In the end of the hearing Willis called Nutt a moron (accidentally recorded). It seems that some people do NOT want to hear the TRUTH!

The trial of the plant continues until August the 25th.

One Doctor for 200 Emergency Patients (Excerpt from ‘Doctors in Baghdad’)

According to the medical journal the Lancet, more than 2,000 doctors have been killed in Iraq since 2003. Ever-present violence in the country affects everyone, but when patients die while under medical care, doctors face the added dangers of kidnapping, robbery, and revenge killings at the hands of bereaved families.

The Iraqi government’s fight against the Islamic State has diverted resources from the Ministry of Health to the war effort, and doctors say the country’s medical facilities are inadequate for its growing population. The situation is prompting medical professionals to leave Iraq, making things even worse.

In this excerpt, Farouq Ali, a pediatrician in Baghdad, explains some of the problems Iraqi doctors face, from budget cuts to becoming targets of revenge by bereaved families.
