Our mission is to deliver compassion to the healthy and coverage to the sick. Our goal is to teach the world that healthy people use medicine too, that recreation is a subset of medicine, that there are many herbs that can be used for preventive medicine and performance enhancement and that there is no such thing as an illegitimate cannabis user … no such thing as the “non-medicinal” use of drugs … there is only abuse and beneficial use.
The whole human race would benefit medicinally, economically and spiritually from a broader definition of “medicine”. As was noted in “Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rocky Mountains” by Terry Willard PHD, “Medicine, in the Indian sense, connected most things that were good.” Anyone can learn what is good and not good about herbs. And you don’t need to be a doctor to practice medicine – ok, maybe you need to be a doctor to play with pills, knives and needles, but medicine is so much more than that. To be a herb dealer, you need to know about what you’re selling, you need to know what a fair price is and you need to know how to avoid poisoning people – these are skills anyone can learn.
The Stressed and Depressed Association promises to devote 10% of all sales of cannabis that is sold to those with anxiety and depression to go towards providing poor people with more serious and life-threatening ailments with free cannabis. We must all become the dispensaries we wish to see in the world.
