Antonio Escohotado Espinosa, philosopher, jurist, writer, essayist and university professor.
The story of Positronics and Antonio Escohotado began many years ago, when the RCN party was presented in Navarra for the legalisation of marijuana. We held a benefit concert where, among others, Raimundo Amador, Karra Elejalde and Antonio himself were present.
It was there that our friendship began to forge, and from that moment on it only grew, fertilised and flourished, until the time came to produce a strain with its own choice of taste, flavour, smell and intoxication. Thus Cum Laude was born.
After this first meeting, we met as judges at various cups, including the Djamba Cup in Ibiza, where he fell in love with our sativa variety Claustrum and we began to work on his variety.
We had several meetings at his house to taste sativas, which was what he liked best. Cum Laude, his variety, his taste, his way of feeling and enjoying, was born out of those meetings with wonderful conversations, stories and anecdotes.
It will be impossible not to remember every day the master, Escohota, as he liked to be called and as his closest contacts did. He changed the way of thinking of generations, he made many people start reading with his marvellous work, which is extensive and impressive.
He is the author of “Historia general de las drogas”, an incredible piece of writing that puts everything in its place and, in his own words: “the pharmacological enlightenment, which presents this field as just another object of knowledge, where the quintessence of danger is concentrated in ignorance”.
Antonio left us earthly on 21 November 2021, but he will never leave us his legacy, his spirit, his vision and his thoughts.
Every day we will remember you and we will light in your memory the smoke of freedom, to let you fly among its aroma and its nebula of colours. See you always Escohota!
