This is from Mainstream media, so do not use the pictures. I just found, that they shed a light on how natural plantations can look. An important Aspect is, that working places are generated that bring money into areas most in need. I can see no difference in organic Kakao or Tee planting to this here. Ethically and from the health perspective, too. Its our narrow cultural norms that ban this or allow that. Alcohol and tobacco for sure are more destructive and high risk behavior triggering than this Plant.
Anyway, as with all 3, educate yourself and do not fall for the illusion, that its great to learn just another habit that is difficult to stop. But if your reality is already a high risk behavior and doctor shopping slippery slope…you should educate on this plant. It might save your life until you drop pain meds. And if not, then it might be the lesser evil for sure. Or what do you think about this plant?
