'the Queen Victoria using cannabis for menstrual cramps' claim is absolutely apocryphal. It was put out by NORML in an ad in the 70s and was purely speculative based on the fact that her royal physician Sir Dr. Reynolds had written about use of cannabis tincture for this condition and b/c she was a sufferer of this condition.

Yep, I concluded this when I first heard about Diego Pellicer. He did not grow cannabis hemp...he grew Manilla hemp. No matter. Hemp for victory in WWII was launched b/c of Japanese blockade of Manilla hemp from the Phillipines

Bob helped me through some rough patches in my personal development. We had nice conversations at Cafe Solstice and we always greeted each other when we passed. He had a training in Jungian Psychotherapy (not mentioned here in his bio). I always saw him to be kind and a good listener. I wonder how he died...Rest in Peace, Bob
