Could it be…the herb that has been used safely for thousands of years, BY HUMAN-BEINGS, amongst many other biological members of our natural world…CURES CANCER? I don’t understand what the dilemma is here. The plant has been proven scientifically, but still remains a taboo to the far right, republican, tea-bagging idiots!
If I were to make a reasonable deduction with the information above…it seems to me, that religion is hindering the treatment of millions of Americans by being the “popular” vote in big government!” This does not come as much of a surprise to most of us, considering the U.S. is the largest Christian country in the world and that is fact, not anything else. There are many good Christians out there, don’t get me wrong. I am not so much trying to attack religion, as I am just verifying, that science does take the proverbial “back seat” to religion, in our government and the way they pass laws for all of us.
The people of our country generally know what they want for themselves as individuals. Americans generally accept others very readily and for the most part, are very good, hard-working and honest people. This is what I want to believe anyways…I hope there aren’t that many stupid people in my country! It’s the government that slows things down and hinders freedom…based greatly, on religious beliefs. I know many agnostic and atheist individuals that are THE definition of good neighbor. Maybe people like these would be better suited for government office and apply more science in decision-making. Regardless, we NEED more science and less judgment by people who don’t have a clue, like most of our politicians!
Religion has been a hinderance to our progression as a species in many ways, that the original writers of the bible, did not intend. It has to be religion keeping this medicinal plant, this natural treatment, from millions of Americans in need. The science is in…and SCIENTISTS almost ALL AGREE, that Cannabis is a highly beneficial plant, capable of treating MANY diseases and ailments with far fewer side effects than BIG PHARMA’s infinite listings of medications! Not only is the plant an excellent medication but it is also used for everything listed in the table below and has been…for thousands and thousands of years!
This natural plant has been taken away from all of the hard-working, law-abiding, peaceful Americans in the United States of America! I support President Obama, but SHAME on him for not assisting Americans with legalization of this PLANT!
Prohibition and the WAR ON DRUGS has been a tragically lost war…on THE BLACKS and THE POOR! The U.S. imports a tremendous amount of industrial hemp when our very own, first president of the United States of America, George Washington, farmed Hemp! The Constitution is Written on HEMP PAPER! This is just INSANE to me!
How can our Egyptian ancestors have designed the greatest monument ever built and used marijuana? Marijuana benefits are NEVER points of drug education and Marijuana. The Great Pyramid still stands, thousands of years after being built and guess what? Cannabis is still used every single day of the year, by millions of people, around the globe!
Medical Marijuana, or Cannabis as I like to refer to it, treats many medical and psychological conditions. Particularly interesting is how well Cannabis treats PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, which we have hundreds of thousands soldiers diagnosed with PTSD due to our government’s decisions, right or wrong, it is because these Americans pay the way for the elected officials. All big corporations, big government and the elected politicians, lobbyists, lawyers, etc…live off the blood and sweat of the average American. We are the back-bone and WE should be heard! Cannabis is a schedule 1 drug, making it as bad as heroin, in the government’s classification system. Alcohol isn’t a schedule 1 drug but it does so much more damage than any of the illegal drugs. Don’t get me wrong, I agree that there needs to be controls on the dangerous drugs, but I completely disagree with the Federal Government’s outdated and just plain WRONG information on Cannabis as a medication. It is absurd, to say the least.
We are making some headway in the fight to legalize the plant, Cannabis! You can see the states that are red, are also mainly Republican states…driven by religion, not science. Kansas doesn’t even accept evolution as a possibility! If you listen to the current Governor speak, every other word is God! He spoke at the Governors state to state dinner last night, I listened, I counted the word God at least 9 times in 30 minutes.
You can’t tell me, religion is just a mouse in the room…IT IS THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM!
Antibacterial, pain-relief, nausea relief, anti-epileptic, ANTI-CANCER! What more do we need? We have the scientific data! We have the double-blind, placebo studies…decades of studies! Medical Marijuana has been legal in California since 1997! Many other countries have been decades ahead of us in the scientific studies on Cannabis…not a shocker as we all know how conservative and slow our government processes can be…and this is all due to lack of science. Too much pride and personal views influencing politics…much larger than that, is the money from big industry and Big Pharma!
The history, the science…should be enough shouldn’t it? If we approach this plant as we do Hops, Barley, Wheat and Tobacco, we wouldn’t even be speaking about it right now. It’s a plant that needs no processing like alcohol and tobacco. It can be grown, dried and used for medicine!
I am an insulin dependent diabetic. My youngest child has Crohn’s disease and is on very harmful chemotherapy drugs. Cannabis, if it was legal, can be grown with hardly any psychoactive THC and almost all CBD. CBDs are cannabidiols…these reduce inflammation and treat Crohn’s, insulin dependent diabetes, high blood pressure, PTSD, alcohol withdrawal syndrome, and the list goes on and on. You can search this website for more articles and links to all of the benefits being held from Americans.
The science is in and it indicates the Cannabis plant is an effective medication. This should move it out of the Government’s scheduled 1 category. There are many known medical uses. These several, simple sentences are fact and should change the laws regarding its schedule and it’s use! Freedom should not be illegal!
