Ganja in Parliament premises

  • 14 Dec 2005 21:57:58 GMT

    Parliamentary personnel are `allowed` a certain quota of this medicinal plant.

    Going to see a doctor or the village vedamahattaya of his/her constituency takes time and energy, when they can look after the voters during that time.

    Better to grow it in the back garden.

    After all it is fresh!!

    This is nothing new in our country. This clearly explains the sudden changes in the behaviour pattern of JVP & JHU. Do not put the blame on the House Keeping Staff as they work for their master who should be responsible.

    No human being likes to hear irritating speeches of our parliamentarians. Therefore, housekeeping staff used to have Ganja puff before the assembly. It is much safer and cheaper than alcohol and also they are not allowed to drink while on duty. Having Ganja in the premises will make their life easier and they would stay on the MOON until these parliamentarians go home.

    Consuming Ganja is BAD. Growing them inside somewhere like Parliament is WORSE. But recognizing the flower of a plant which is well known for its deadly cynic poison like Niyangala (or Karthigai in Tamil) as the `National` flower is a DISASTER.

    Kartigai in Tamil is November, a very special month!

    I could be wrong. However, what do you call Niyangala (Gloriosa superba) in Tamil? Niyangala is the flower that was declared by Animals as the `National` Flower of Tamil `Nation`.

    Mr President

    Nice Idea. Now we know how you were going bridge the budget gap.

    This is just too funny.. This is why nobody considers Sri Lanka a real country, it`s just a joke of a country with pot smoking politicians.

    Hi Mucha,

    So you are going to make Cannabis Sativa as the National flower of SL? Not a bad idea at all Mucha. For a demoralized society like ours this is a good plant to elevate our mood and improve our imagination, really it is hallucination.

    It will improve our religious and cultural fervor and more importantly make us believe that it is true and what else do we need?

    You know it distorts sensory perceptions, it is good for our private bus drivers too, while hammering down Kandy road at 150km/h they will think it is only 50km/h and thus more pressure on the gas pedal, and you will be the front seat passenger.

    And for many the cost of living may appear as the lowest in the world!

    Mucha, if we could combine cannabis with coca plant(Erythroxylon Coca)then we will be one step more as coca is a good stimulant. Just imagine our folks with hallucination and stimulation, what a paradise to live in.

    Regarding our neighbouring country Eelam, Gloriosa Superba is not that poisonous, it does not have a cyanogenic compounds, its yam has colchicine, it causes gastro-enteritis and more importantly used to induce abortion. So not a bad plant for export to the neighboring SL where there is a great demand.

    Mucha, have you seen this plant and its flower? It is a beautiful monocotyledonous plant, a creeper, beautiful leaves with leave tips modified into tendril and multi coloured ribbon like flowers, mostly blooms around the time Thalaivar was born.

    It is a creeper. Can you remember once Dingiri referred to minorities as creepers! Hence this is the national flower of Eelam, but they do not creep on trees (majority) but on the dividing fences.

    Bye Mucha, make up your mind, Nada

    Puravidya Charkavarthi Mr. Medhananda Ellawala has conducted a survey in the parliment grounds and found that the Ganja plantation had been their since the days of King Pandukabhaya.
