Cannabis Connecting the Troubled in Northern Ireland | Cannabis News Network

Clark French, the founder of the United Patients Alliance, traveled to Belfast for the first ever held Medical Cannabis Summit in Northern Ireland. A landmark occasion!

His exclusive report for Cannabis News Network shows that cannabis can bring people together in a conflict area.

The conflict in Northern Ireland during the late 20th century is known as the Troubles. Over 3,600 people were killed and thousands more injured.

Over the course of three decades, violence on the streets of Northern Ireland was commonplace.

In 1998 The Good Friday Agreement restored the self-government to Northern Ireland and brought an end to the Troubles.

Clark heard a lot about how cannabis is healing some of the division here and was really interested to find out how cannabis is helping to bring these 2 historically divided communities together.

Like the story of Neil Paine, a former British soldier serving in Northern Ireland in the past. He is using cannabis for his trauma and pains. He is now at ease amongst fellow cannabis patients.
Patient stories and seeing cannabis help people in need runs deep in Northern Ireland.

There is no doubt that people from both communities are seeing the benefits to their friends and family from consuming cannabis.

YouTuber Becomes First In U.K. To Win Civil Damages In Revenge Porn Case (HBO)

American YouTube star Chrissy Chambers has made legal history in the United Kingdom by becoming the first victim of revenge pornography ever to win civil damages in a public settlement.

“To every victim of this insidious kind of attack, I am here to say: You can fight back and win. You will heal and move on – and you will not have to take those steps alone,” Chambers said in a public statement outside the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

Chambers and her partner, Bria Kam, are two of the most popular lesbian content creators on YouTube. Their channels have close to one million subscribers.

Before coming out, Chambers had a British boyfriend who recorded videos of him having sex with her without her knowledge or consent. He posted them online years after they broke up.

Chambers and Kam waged a very public battle against revenge pornography, documented on their YouTube channel. The landmark victory comes after years of legal struggles on both sides of the Atlantic. Chambers spoke exclusively to VICE News about her story​
