Cannabis Culture

Already an apology is due,
which is only better
than one already overdue,

Yes, I know cannabis
is a place of multiple
and diversely celebrated
subcultures,

And, yes, I realize chaos
and complexity may be civilly sipped
and thirstily gulped
from diverse alcohol
subcultures,
pedigrees,
castes of enumerated strength,
weakness,
risk,
opportunity.

Even so,
although it may feel peculiar
to follow this bi-cultural thought experiment

Let us explore
what we might heuristically mean
by a Cannabis Culture (CC)
versus Alcohol Culture (AC),
as we might pursue a feminist
versus patriarchal history.

I have two CC sons
in their AfricanAmerican 20s,
both politically and economically at high risk
of lifetime failure to thrive.

To mental light
and physical power survive,
younger son is dominated by dark fear;
older sun by redhot anger
burning against an ecopolitically punishing system

With win/lose
hostile
white privileged
lack of good and healthy
RightBrain
interdependent networking manners

Oblivious to CC dense
possibilities
for healthy
cooperative
multi-therapeutic intent;

Stuck in blood poisoning
AC self-traumatizing medication
worthy of a patriarchal
capitalist
straight
white supremacist wounded child
traumatized by Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Hostile
oppositional
defiant
aggressive
curiously threatened by CC organic-fed
and clear watered
bicameral awareness
of polypathic climate anxiety

About outside degenerating subclimates,
faltering public, global healthcare systems
and concomitant inside struggling
polycultural CC values
for multiculturing ego-health
encountering empathic eco-wealth.

It interests CC biased me,
and causes grave AC concern,
that RightBrain prominent
younger son’s disenfranchising fear
wishes older sun’s angry hot potential allies
were more LeftBrain curious
about therapeutic values
of nonviolent communication.

Angry-CC suns are often under-
and unemployed, in part,
because their trauma medication
is a hiring barrier
to securing a secular job,
and to attracting a sacred vocation,
while their AC former friends
and learning peers,
more white and patriarchally privileged
pass with patriotic fervor
their blood
and uncriminalized background tests.

Angry-CC solar flaring suns
demand their Fear-CC brothers
and timid sisters
aggressively demonstrate empowering eco-political courage
to erupt CC hegemony.

Yet all the CCs and ACs above
behave as if we suffer less
because of our employment marginalizing,
and potentially criminalizing, choices

And feel as if we win more
when we suns and windblown daughters
recognize and appreciate each AC/CC
bicamerolling Other

When we organize deep CC nonviolent listening circles,
open to our patriarchal
capitalist
straight
white AC
LeftBrain degenerative nemesis.

Alcohol-natured and Old Cannabis-spirited
indigenous nature/spirit wisdom
among bicameral polyculturalists
could synergetically co-mediate global thinking
and feeling

Bilaterally rebalancing internal
external co-passion communions

Globally conscious
Ego/EcoSystemic CC
politically resonates with
and for
and of public health solidarity systems
reconnecting all bicamerally co-binary
eco-wealthy EarthTribes.
