Cannabis a Cure for Cancer

Today, the first article will be on marijuana, as a activist and civil rights advocate this is a subject that really needs a lot of attention from alternative news sources as the main stream media is conveying a lot of FUD to the general public.
Cannabis prohibition is one of the ugliest civil rights violations of the 20th Century. As the 21st century begins we are still living with prohibition.
I say that Pot Prohibition is one of the ugliest civil rights violations because the laws are incredibly harsh and the use of SWAT teams too often leads to unneeded deaths.
There are lots of things that need advocacy, but most do not involve death for choosing a safer, healthier recreational drug. That and it is also one of the most incredible medicinal herbs known to mankind, and its seeds were a famous source of food in Ancient China, today Chinese have hybrid hemps that have extremely large seeds to be eaten as a food.
Enough of my thoughts on the subject and on todays Article of interest:

Our Government Knew 36yrs ago that Cannabis Kills Cancer!

Usually, any story that even suggests the possibility of a new treatment for cancer is greeted with headlines about a “cancer cure” – however remote in the future and improbable in fact it might be. But if marijuana is involved, don’t expect any coverage from mainstream media, especially since mainstream editors have been quietly killing this story for the past thirty years…

That’s right, news about the abilility of pot to shrink tumors first surfaced, way back in 1974. Researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the National Institutes of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice — lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.


Now lets take a look at Rick Simpson and his website Phoenix Tears, there is a lot of good information on how to use Cannabis as a cancer cure, and he tells of his misadventures with the RCMP.

My name is Rick Simpson.

Throughout man's history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge hemp has always been used as a political and religious football.

The results of the cases can be readily replicated by any practitioner, medical or otherwise, anywhere, to cure malignant melanomas and more importantly, save lives. The topical application of hemp oil salves or balms helps to control or cure various skin conditions. Taken orally, the oil tends to seek out and destroy cancer cells in the body, but as with any drug, too much can cause side effects; most notable with hemp oil is drowsiness. Unlike opiates and their derivatives, hemp oil is not addictive.

I think everyone has heard of MRSA the staff infection that defies antibiotics. There have been a lot of MSM stories about this vile disease, but here is something msm has been awfully quiet about.

Technology Review
Substances harvested from cannabis plants could soon outshine conventional antibiotics in the escalating battle against drug-resistant bacteria. The compounds, called cannabinoids, appear to be unaffected by the mechanism that superbugs like MRSA use to evade existing antibiotics. Scientists from Italy and the United Kingdom, who published their research in the Journal of Natural Products last month, say that cannabis-based creams could also be developed to treat persistent skin infections.

Stay well!
