Since the founding of Indonesia in 1945, our nation has never published literature or results of research on cannabis plants. Indonesia was introduced legally to cannabis with what is called the Narcotics Law no. 9 of 1976. Since then local media initiated the idea that cannabis is harmful to both society and peoples brains, something which they have consistantly maintained. To this day no Indonesian citizen can avoid this propoganda.

Now as conditions have changed, information can be accessed easily through the internet. Anyone can quickly and accurately find true information about the benefits of the cannabis plant. As a result, many people are wondering, is it actually true that cannabis is something that is very dangerous?

You would be correct to assume that all the information promoted through media and Badan Narcotika National (like DEA in USA) about cannabis has been lies. Because of this, we would like to offer the opportunity to help upgrade your mind with correct information regarding cannabis. If you dont you run the risk of harboring lies, and who wants their mind filled with lies?

After having for five years studied legal strategies to work with the government and media, we realized the importance of medical cannabis. Cannabis can treat various types of chronic diseases such as epilepsy, diabetes, cancer, asthma, heart problem, and so forth . Unfortunately peoples access to both medical cannabis and truthful information about it had been closed.

America’s leading news agency, CNN, had issued a medical cannabis documentary titled Weed and Weed 2 : Cannabis Madness . Weed the film clearly shows a toddler who recovered from epilepsy after consuming cannabis oil while weed 2 is more inclined to shows the politics of medical cannabis.

At the same time, one of CNN’s correspondents, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, released 2 important statements, “I apologize because I didn’t look hard enough, until now. I didn’t look far enough. I didn’t review papers from smaller labs in other countries doing some remarkable research, and I was too dismissive of the loud chorus of legitimate patients whose symptoms improved on cannabis.”
In addition to CNN chief medical field also said, “I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed cannabis as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof. Surely, they must have quality reasoning as to why cannabis is in the category of the most dangerous drugs that have “no accepted medicinal use and a high potential for abuse.”

In accordance with America’s DEA standards, Indonesia simliarly has Narcotics Law No.35 of 2009 which places cannabis into a class 1 narcotics rating. This means that cannabis is viewed as having no medical value and is not allowed as medicine under any circumstances.

Recently America has made a large shift in its view of cannabis. It is widely viewed that its schedule 1 narcotics rating is undeserved, and in two of fifty states cannabis is legal for recreational use. In twenty-one out of fifty states, plus Washington DC, cannabis has been legalized for medical use.

Currently Indonesia is vulnerable to cannabis based medicines from abroad due to our own lack of cannabis development. Most viewed threats would be from the United Kingdom and China. However, Indonesia could develope its own medicinal niche as Aceh Cannabis, an indigenous landrace strain of cannabis, could potentially serve broad medicinal purposes. Acehnese people have been using cannabis root decoction to treat diabetes and cannabis seeds as seasoning for cooking beef or mutton. In addition, they also produce oil by mixing cannabis seeds with coconut oil for various treatments.

Indonesia has hope in you, in everyone. We hope that you can open your mind and find forgiveness for yourself for having misjudged cannabis. We hope you can see that our society has 12 million diabetes patients, 15,000 women who develope cervical cancer annually, 1.8 million people suffering from epilepsy, and tens of millions who die each year from heart attacks.

Our previous incorrect views of cannabis have prevented so many people now from being able to use cannabis in a medicinal form. Despite this God has bestowed the Indonesian people with the cannabis plant that grows in Aceh which could potentially be a wonderful medicine. Nature has provided so much and asked so little in return. Now is the time for the people of Pancasila, this Godly nation to recognize and utilise the work of God, our cannabis plant, for our brothers and sisters who really need it.

Documentary Film premiere Weed (Medical Cannabis) simultaneously in 9 cities.

If you are in Indonesia, or plan on being near one of these locations on the 20th, LGN would like to invite you to join us in celebrating World Cannabis Day by viewing the movie Weed at one of these various locations. Please see the poster for more details.
