"I do not consider myself a religious person in the usual sense, but there is a religious aspect to some highs. The heightened sensitivity in all areas gives me a feeling of communion with my surroundings, both animate and inanimate." - Carl Sagan 
"The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world." - Carl Sagan

"It will not be technology that changes weed, it will be weed that transforms and develops technologies with applications in a variety of industries we are only beginning to imagine.  The plant comprises more medicinal compounds than any other plant by orders of magnitude. It is a complete food source, and oil source and a fiber source.” - Kevin McKernan, founder of Medicinal Genomics

"Our endocannabinoid system is involved in essentially every single disease process that is out there, and this is why cannabis has such far reaching benefits, is that by balancing our own naturally occurring endocannabinoid system we can positively impact any disease process that’s out there." - Dr. Mike Steward

“The endocannabinoid system resides within all animals except the insect. It’s a 600,000 million year old messenger and receptor system integral to homeostasis or the management of balance within your body. From embryonic development to immunosurveillance there is not a single function in your bodies that is not influenced or modulated by the endocannabinoid system.” - Dr. Rachel M Knox, MD
