Cannabis Is A Narcotic Drug And Must Not Be Added To Food

Even though people around the world know that narcotic drugs are harmful, many still enjoy consuming them as they stimulate the human brain to release “dopamine”, which brings excitement, comfort, pleasure and thrill. They also relieve pain and stress. However, narcotic drugs will severely damage the human body’s cells and other structural tissues. A person who becomes addicted will find it very difficult to quit. When the addict does not consume the drug, he or she will experience listlessness, feelings of emptiness and weakness in the whole body, and be unable to live normally. As such, drug addicts mostly end up ruining their families and being incarcerated in drug rehabilitation centres. Some even lose their lives from heavy drug use.

Examples of narcotic drugs include opium, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, morphine and cannabis. Singapore, China, and many countries around the world have laws banning narcotics.

Kyrios says that cannabis should be classified as a risky narcotic, instead of a less dangerous drug! That’s because contrary to some news and research studies that refer to its medicinal properties, cannabis can still be abused and lead to addiction and many adverse effects. Consumption patterns have also changed in recent years as CBD and THC, both active ingredients of cannabis, are now being incorporated into many consumer and lifestyle products. In addition, without limits on THC levels, some cannabis products even contain close to 100% THC. As such, many young teenagers who regularly consume such products are becoming addicted and dangerously ill as a result.

Consuming cannabis will destroy the healthy physiology of the human body and cause hypersensitivity and damage of the cranial nerves, leading to confusion of the mind, memory impairment, and the loss of concentration during work. The brain will develop an addiction to the stimulus of cannabis such that the person cannot overcome the temptation to consume it daily and become dependent on it for life. Not consuming it will cause one to become listless and unable to work, eventually resulting in family breakdown, a ruined future and a loss of dignity. Such a person will find themselves in a predicament filled with troubles and miseries, where the inability to break free from the harm of drugs would render life meaningless. Is it worth sacrificing the joy of living for a brief moment of fun and pleasure?

Kyrios worries that in the future, more unscrupulous merchants will add cannabis-derived cannabinoids such as THC and CBD to food, beverages, food ingredients, sauces, and even use them as food additives, in a bid to increase product sales. Many people will unknowingly become addicted, leading to long-term dependence. Accumulation of such toxins will result in the damage to all tissues in the body. Merchants must not act against their own conscience and violate ethical rules by maximising their own profits at the expense of others.

Kyrios says that countries must not allow the cultivation and sale of cannabis drugs, as well as any products containing it. Laws must also be enacted to ban any addition of cannabis-derived cannabinoids to food, including poultry feed. Addition of cannabis to food products, whether openly or covertly, is akin to forcing people to consume drugs in a disguised form, poisoning people for profits. This is an unforgivable crime!

Kyrios highly compliments the foresight of the Singapore government to resolutely prevent the import of all narcotic drugs. Only a good government will be concerned for its citizens’ well-being. Strongly prohibiting drugs is for the sake of the citizens’ health and happiness.

Kyrios wants everyone to be responsible and resist all narcotics, including cannabis. Everyone must protect their own health. Do not try such drugs out of curiosity. Be responsible for your own life, only then can you live blissfully.
