Is perhaps a sign this things are no longer nedded so to highten the vibrations of old earth. No idea how much weight this thought can haveWonder if the point of the original post was to get people thinking.
I believe we agree that there is a time and place for narcotics such as morphine, so eliminating opium would pose a hardship on many people.
Those who profit from heroin and cocaine also profit from synthetics such as fentanyl (synthetic opiod).
So, how would eliminating the plants help? Am I missing something?
Some people use drugs as escapism, not for personal growth, so removing the plants would remove one route of escapism, and force people to deal with their problems instead of running away from them. Getting rid of the source plants would also, probably, push at least some people to investigate and try other methods of pain relief, like meditation or reiki.So, how would eliminating the plants help?

Check out the previous posts.

This has turned into a very interesting discussion about medicinal use and abuse of plants. Before big Pharma got into the act, people relied on mostly women who knew how to treat illness and injury with herbs and tonics. Then, as always, someone decided there was a buck to be made, and these knowledgeable people were effectively run out of business.
As world trade expanded, the Victorian era saw addictions to opium and cocaine. It was possible for anyone to buy tablets and tonics legally.
When the knowledgable person is out of the mix, misuse grows. When opium and cocaine came to Europe, their properties were unknown, but they were quickly adopted as panaceas for almost every ailment. Then we have opium dens in Asia, where people could forget the troubles of their lives.
What are the threads here? Many people will do anything for relief from physical or psychological / spiritual pain. People looking for financial gain exploit these troubles. Legitimate uses of morphine, for example, are replaced with synthetic substitutes, which can be more easily produced for the masses.
I can see the immediate value of cutting off the supply to the people making money from heroin and cocaine. However, in the long-run, it does not address the synthetics that are plaguing large swaths of the population. Would it not just prompt the money-grubbers to concoct more dangerous synthetics (meth)?
Looking at who is using the pill supplies flooding this country, suggests a deeper issue - people wanting any kind of relief from their lives.

This is a great thread - so many people have joined in and come up with great ideas.I think the whole post from David Topi is one of those mind-stretchers, where the concomitant realisation is that our Higher Selves have energetically more say and a bigger overview of an entire situation, than the avatars of those Higher Selves physically present here on Earth.
Perhaps he was mistakenly identified as a plant?Note that I just sent David an email asking how things were as his last posting was on the 21st of October last year, so it's been a while!
