After Hsu’s mother signed for the package, the officers presented a warrant for Hsu’s arrest. According to an SETN report, Hsu is currently in detention at the Taoyuan Detention Center.

    Cannabis has real and proven medical applications for use under naturopathic advice and does not cause strokes or heart failure. Yet something “out there” does these things and more, in spades, and is actually PROMOTED by the so-called “medical community” and “official authorities” who generally evince a panicky knee-jerk reaction to this natural plant material. When is this two-faced and unhelpful discrimination going to end?
