    The European Union's ban on herbal medications is going into effect by this April, 2011. What this means is unless an herbal product, produced for medical treatment, has been tested and paid licensing fees, that product will be pulled from the shelves and banned for sale to the public.

    Herbal remedy companies have had seven years to comply with this act. Regardless, many will continue to produce their products, just for the underground market claims some herbal health advocates.

    Herbal remedies have been around for as long as there have been people. Herbal teas, infusions and tinctures are staples in many cultures for treating a variety of health issues. However, some have been concerned that these herbal remedies vary and may be dangerous as they are not regulated.

    The EU are all set to launch a Ban on common garden herbs and plants making them illegal presumably with penalties for growing, possessing and selling these natural plants. This includes all Chinese herbs, all Indian herbs, all Western herbs. The list runs into the hundreds of herbs banned in the E.U.

    15 April 2010)– From April 2011, European legislation (EC Directive 2004/24/EC) which has already been passed in 2004 will come into force which will effectively mean that ALL Herbal medicines will disappear from the shelves in our High Streets or internet shops within the EU. Freedom of choice in medicine is being taken away. You will only have access to treatments which are Pharmaceutical Drugs based in order to treat your own and your families ailments. No Chinese herbs, No Ayurvedic (Indian) herbs, No Western herbs, NO MEDICINAL HERBS WHATSOEVER. Chinese medicine practitioners will lose access to the majority of the herbs and medicines on which they rely. Consumers will NOT be able to buy any Chinese herbal products within the EU.

    This can definitely happen in America. Anybody want to start a grassroots effort and send herbs to Europe? :)
    I'm sure America is already in the works to ban the use
    of herbal remedies. After all, the pharmacy companies aren't making money.

    The parmacies have been lobbying for years to stop herbal medicines. I guess we will have to go underground with this too.

    The E.U is about 27 European countries, right? There's:

    Austria
    Belgium
    Bulgaria
    Cyprus
    Czech Republic
    Denmark
    Estonia
    Finland
    France
    Germany
    Greece
    Hungary
    Ireland
    Italy
    Latvia
    Lithuania
    Luxembourg
    Malta
    Netherlands
    Poland
    Portugal
    Romania
    Slovakia
    Slovenia
    Spain
    Sweden
    United Kingdom

    And there are several candidate countries as well.

    So, out of 196 countries in the world (The most recent country being South Sudan), at least 27 of them will be without herbal remedies through the E.U. . .

    Interesting turn of events. The Netherlands have been selling herb seeds to the US and sneak mailing them in. Now it will be them buying herb seeds from the US and us discreetly mailing them to them!

    Back on topic… That is a big pile of fresh road apples is what it is! The EU will sell you one of the most addictive and toxic ‘herbs’ know to man (store bought cigarettes) but not a tea to make you feel better or help to relax. It is nearing time to join those in the streets and put a stop to all this nonsense.
