POT TV – TMZ 105 No Regrets, No Quarter Given. Watch The Mernahuana Zone every Tuesday from 4:20 – 7:20 PT on Pot TV. In this episode: I’ll be zipping back from a show up-and-wave court appearance before Tuesday’s webcast.
No word from the Supreme Court of Canada on when they’ll accept our case, but they’re dealing with prostitution and soon the right to die. Meanwhile or federal parliament is too bogged down in scandal to ever deal with weighty issues. Unlike the Quebec legislature which has announced plans to introduce legislation dealing with peaceful put down this week.
Plenty of people are weirded out by death. Completely understandable. Five years ago I woke up in the stroke unit, surrounded by three fellows who were waiting for end of life nursing care. They weren’t going anywhere, unlike me, who could go home in a few weeks. I used to have plenty of determination, but this experience, which I don’t talk much about, has dramatically changed me.
This week I came across a great TedTalk, which I followed up with some research of my own. The top five regrets of people at end of their life is fascinating to examine. It was compiled by hospice workers.
1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.
3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.
I think people who inhale are more likely to have fewer of these regrets, but I don’t have the proof. Plenty of my friends, dare I say almost all the close ones, are chasing a life of they can call their own. But not all my friends are cannabis enthusiasts and those one’s also won’t have too much worry about these five regrets.
At one time, government worried a legal cannabis society would result in workers not working. They’d become lazy. One reason to study cannabis in Ontario was to determine if the work force would become more interested in bud and less in the rigours of making the one percent their profits.
Are cannabis people more likely to chase their dreams?
It’s important this time of year to put down the social media and get on outside. We’ve been having a great time filming Spots To Smoke Pot Toronto. Lastly, summer recess is a great time to visit your MP and MPP or MLA to discuss why repealing marijuana prohibition is important. Bring them the list of the top five regrets of the dying and see if that motivates them.
