    It was touted as a miracle pill: a narcotic pain reliever that could change the lives of people suffering from chronic pain, but with little, so its maker claimed, and thousands of doctors believed  risk of addiction.

    Since OxyContin was introduced in 1996, Canada has recorded the second-highest number of prescription opioid painkiller addictions -- and the world's second-highest death rate from overdoses.

    So why publish this on a website seamingly used to advocate the benefits medical cannabis?

    Largely to save lives. Sudies have been showing that the gateway theory is a myth, and if it does excist, that same 'gate' swing both ways.

    Studies now suggest that using cannabis to quit deadly addictions such as OxyContin, (Opiopates) and even fight against alcoholism.

    What Are Opioids? Opioids are substances that act on opioid receptors to produce morphine-like effects. Opioids are most often used medically to relieve pain.

    If publishing this video could save only one life, than to me, it outweighs any criticism I may receive for doing it. Puff puff pass.

  • Canada's medical marijuana corruption

    Whether you agree with it or not there are over thirteen thousand people in Canada who have a medical marijuana license and they can legally smoke pot.

    It's allowed under a federal program created over ten years ago. Health Canada doesn't charge for a medical marijuana license and the program is supposed to be easily accessible.

    But 16x9 investigation has uncovered numerous cases that put its legitimacy into question, like doctors who demand hundreds of dollars for seeing patients and filling out forms and patients who then use that license to grow and sell marijuana on the black market.

    This is an investigation into Health Canada's medical marijuana licence program that reveals some doctors and lawyers profiting from the program - and 16x9 exposes an underground market for the illegal drug.

  • The Choice is Ours

    Throughout our history, humanity has set its sights on seemingly impossible goals, and found a way to realize those goals against all obstacles. This awe-inspiring potential is on full display in the opening moments of the new documentary The Choice is Ours, as retired NASA astronaut and professional astronomer Jeff Hoffman testifies to the glories of space travel.

    With unparalleled willpower and ingenuity, we crafted the tools and technologies to explore what was once limited to the fabrications of Hollywood myth makers. But even from atmospheres beyond our own, the earthbound challenges we have yet to conquer remain in full view. Having manned multiple space flights over the course of many years, this reality became apparent to Professor Hoffman as he gazed upon the surfaces of our planet from his capsule. "There's a view of the impact that humans have had on our planet, and that can be pretty scary," he reflects.

    The most pressing issues facing humankind today - from climate change to widespread crime to financial calamity to the rapidly depleting natural resources of our planet - take center stage in The Choice is Ours, but they're approached from a refreshingly unique perspective. This elegantly produced film promotes our capacity to invoke positive change in the world, and considers the behavioral and cultural shifts which must take place to make this possible.

    The Choice is Ours is a production of The Venus Project, an organization devoted to uncovering innovative new approaches to problem solving. The organization's founder, 97-year old futurist Jacques Fresco, serves as the principal guide throughout the film's narrative. With convincing and articulate insight, Fresco argues for a reconsideration of what is possible in each of us, and by extension, the world at large. In examining whether our behaviors are determined by human nature, or by absorbing the environment which surrounds us, the film offers clues as to how we can begin to rebuild the reality of our planet from the ground up.

    If defeating self-doubt and apathy were the rules which governed our species decades ago, would we have ever invented the technology to venture into outer space? By applying the same intensity of positive focus to global pursuits, we can improve the view of our planet, even from the stars.

  • The Cash Crop: Canadian Cannabis

    In the latest episode of our Canadian Cannabis series, we take a look at how Canada is missing out on an economic windfall by continuing down a path of restrictive marijuana policies.

    Fucked Up's Damian Abraham, a medical marijuana user and overall weed enthusiast, went out to Vancouver and Denver to compare the grey market of dispensaries in British Columbia (which are now in the crosshairs of the federal government) to Denver's regulated legal weed economy. He meets with weed entrepreneurs in both cities and chats with the decision makers who are trying to make pot easy to get on both sides of the border.

  • Toronto's Cannabis Candyland

    Toronto is in the middle of a grey market, marijuana dispensary boom. Since Canada?s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was elected in 2015, weed entrepreneurs have been illegally opening up shop all over the city.

    Even though there's no guarantee that Trudeau's plan for legal marijuana will include storefront businesses, these operations are opening almost daily.

    Not only do these shops sell weed, more and more customers are coming through the doors of their local dispensary looking for marijuana edibles. While these stores insist they're providing a medical need to cannabis patients, can a weed soda or a chronic cookie really be considered medicinal? VICE host and medical marijuana patient Damian Abraham does the tough job of trying to figure that out.

  • The Truth 365

    In less than ten years social media has taken the world by storm. We can now communicate with almost anyone from anywhere effortlessly and instantly and the ways we use social media are endless: to stay in touch, for entertainment, to express ourselves, or to satisfy our curiosity about a planet millions of miles from earth.

    With your help, we plan to harness the power of social media to protect our most vulnerable citizens, our children. Our goal is to stop a killer, a silent killer that takes the lives of children day after day, 365 days a year. This is the bully or the monster that comes in the middle of the night and steals our kids. Four years ago, Melinda faced this killer and survived but she was one of the lucky ones.

    Over 2,500 kids a year die at the hands of this killer called cancer, childhood cancer. What's shocking is that our country is doing very little to prevent these deaths and the public is unaware. Every day, children are dying.

    Every day, children are being diagnosed and still nothing is being done about it and people don't know. We didn't know, we didn't have any idea that there was this many families out there, these many children and how terrible these diseases are. Once you do start to realize that, you know that something needs to be done.

    Melinda too was unaware until this beast nearly took her live. She vowed that if she survived she would do everything in her power to help expose the truth, eradicate cancer and end the suffering for all children. That brings us to today and this film. She's here to fulfill this promise but she needs your help. We need your help. You have the power to give these kids something that they never had... a voice.

    They're young, innocent kids who need someone to stand up for them. The truth is that US government spends billions of dollars a year on cancer research but very little goes directly to childhood cancer research. The government has millions and billions of dollars set aside for cancer research but so little of it is spent on children. It's very little, a fraction. Right now, it's estimated that about four percent of the National Cancer Institute's budget is directed for childhood cancer research.

    Kids are dying because they lack treatment options. We cannot sit here and wait for the next 10 years. In 10 years more children will die. You could help stop this by exposing this hidden reality. If people really knew what was going on with little kids, maybe that funding would change. At the end of this film, we will tell you exactly how you can stand up for these kids in a way that will make a big difference. It takes so little to take a stand and it means too much if thousand, ten thousand, a hundred thousand, a million people take the stand.
