Alcohol Mortalities

Alcohol has been linked as a direct health hazard to humans, and results in around 75,000 deaths per year in the United States of America. The study ( reported here ) states that near 35,000 people die of health problems, cirrhosis, cancer, and other diseases, while almost 41,000 people die in fatal accidents caused by driving.
Marijuana, however, has killed nobody, harms nobody in the long term, and cures five forms of cancer when processed properly and ingested.

So the United States government has deemed marijuana to be illegal,
and alcohol to be legal. Not only that, but the very nature of the Center for Disease Control appears to be attempting to alter truth by posting lies. More investigation is needed, here. Their statement of 41,000 deaths due directly to alcohol means that there were ONLY a little less than three thousand deaths due to vehicular manslaughter, lost control of car, speeding, wreckless driving, stupidity, and drug use (such as heroin, amphetamines, and other prescription or OTC drugs)
Actually, I find it somewhat disconcerting that they have studies that have NOTHING to do with disease at all, such as automobile deaths.

Modern thinking in a modern age.

So Our Government has Decided That Blatant Lying is Appropriate

patent number 6,630,507 states unequivocally that cannabinoids are useful in the prevention and treatment of a wide variety of diseases including auto-immune disorders, stroke, trauma, Parkinson’s, Alzeheimer’s and HIV dementia. The patent, awarded in 2003, is based on research done by the National Institute of Health, and is assigned to the US Dept. of Health and Human Services.

22 million people have cancer, half a million will die this year

If you have enough people to put up four games of cards.
One of them has cancer.

Every fourtieth card party, that one will die.

22 MILLION people have cancer.
More than half a million will die from it.
Marijuana cures cancer.
The idiots have put such an onus of fear and loathing (for no reason, either) onto it that researchers could not even get more to test with.
Prostate cancer mean anything to guys?
Brest cancer mean anything to you girls?
Lung cancer mean anything to anyone?
Brain cancer?
Skin cancer?

OK, it's harmless as a recreational outlet, but, politicians being what they are (getting everything they are taking away from health care, a big fat retirement package that includes guaranteed yearly raises) have decided that if they move too fast to help those with cancer, help those without jobs, that they will appear as something weak to the general population. And to make things worse, our congressmen and senators cannot even use a google search bar. They don't even know that 125-175 million people WANT to smoke recreationally, they don't know it cures cancer, they don't even know why their cars keep them warm (cannabis insulation, probably)

So, you have sixteen friends.
You like your friends.
and marijuana cannabinoid oil MIGHT just cure that.

Write to your Congressman, Congresswoman, Senators, President, Governor, state legislator, mayor...

Legalize marijuana.

Well, people who will emphatically state that their mission is the more important mission...

Todd Rokita, (In a letter back to me about his "stand" on marijuana and its possible cures)

"Thank you for contacting me regarding medicinal marijuana.  It is good to hear from you.

As you may know, several measures have been introduced this Congress regarding medicinal marijuana. I believe every American citizen deserves to be treated with the best medical care and receive adequate medication at reasonable costs.

That being said, I do not support the legalization of medicinal marijuana. That is why I support the current Federal and Indiana laws governing the sale and use of medical marijuana.

I am sorry that we do not agree on this issue. Healthy debate and discourse are benchmarks of a vibrant republic and we are lucky to live in a nation that honors that belief. I will do my best to represent you and the people of Indiana's 4th District well.

Again, thank you for contacting me, please stay in touch. "

Steel industry, as automobiles will start using more cannabis body parts because of the better durability, inexpensiveness, and that it is biodegradable

Pharmaceutical companies, because there are many health benefits from marijuana that can be had for a fraction of cost compared to their prices

Automobile manufacturers, because retooling their machines means hiring more men

Alcohol industry because marijuana doesn't kill brain cells, nor is it addictive

Tobacco industries, because not only is marijuana not addictive, it can also help people break their tobacco addiction

Privatized prison builders because full cells means more work for builders

Privatized prison owners, because full cells means more profit

Fuel industries because lightweight vehicles give batteries and hybrid vehicles a better chance at working

Police agencies because most get to confiscate and sell property of people caught smoking marijuana

National Institute of Health because they have invested their time and effort up a blind alley, and now refuse to admit wrong doing (credibility, and it also means that the Center for Disease Control and the DEA and the FDA all have the same stake in selling the untruth)

Politicians getting lobby money from these and similar industries

Lobbyists that get paid to say it is bad and buy government votes to do so, too

Drug dealers, because there would be no profit if there wasn't a law against marijuana

Lumber corporations because cannabis can replace most items made from trees without tearing down a forest

Import companies profiting on the products from China, India, Europe, and Canada, because if it were legal to grow cannabis here, we wouldn't have to import it.


WHO DOES want marijuana legalized?

Anyone who has,  Breast cancer, Lung cancer, Brain cancer, prostate cancer, or skin cancer, or has relatives and loved ones with those cancers

Anyone who has friends, loved ones or family with Alzheimer

Those with MS or CP

Glaucoma patients

People who would rather get a relaxing buzz without killing brain cells or becoming addicted, as a matter of Freedom and Choice

Folks who live on the Southern border and are tired of the "war" going on that's killing their friends and neighbors

Folk who are interested in lessening our carbon footprint

Unemployed people, as legalization means hundreds of thousands of jobs

As well as a multitude of us that realize that it is not a significant priority in this day and age

Given That All Those Colleges and Universities Say Their Studies Show That Marijuana is Beneficial

Not even the benefit of the doubt?

The list grows with each coming month. The National Institute of Health, in their devious endeavor to portray marijuana as bad, inadvertently opened the flood gates to the cure for cancer.
Interesting that their narrow mindedness continues, of course. It has gone on for some 80 years.
The NIH has grown to encompass nearly 1% of the Federal government's operating budget. The NIH now controls over 50% of all funding for health research, as well as 85% of all funding for colleges and universities. That's a total of about two thirds of ALL money spent on research and medical study, and in America, that total is about $500 Billion Annually. (1)

that means that, since NIH controls 2/3 of the money, that they wield about $300 Billion a year, spent where THEY want to spend, to state what THEY want to state, and call the shots THEY want to call.

And you can bet that Colleges and Universities take them up on their offers of money. And even so, they rarely get any new "dirt" to throw at marijuana, and more often than not, the researchers recognized the significance of the study, and continued as far as they could into a cure for cancer.


But what will they say to America, to the politicians, to the President? I mean...that's a LOT of LOOT that they throw around.
What news from the Mark?
Well, I'm glad you asked.
They give us Dr. Harry J. Anslinger's words.
And his absolute guarantee of credibility...

even though he is NOT a doctor...
even though he never DID the research he claims to have done...
even though his claims were rarely, if ever, backed by physical evidence...

But still, those are the very words that the National Institute of Health use today.

And now they have gone and given those words to the President of the United States of America as if they were the truth.
Fact is, the NIH acts more like Bush junior and Cheney than the responsible bastion of research they portray themselves as.

The Cure for Cancer in Our Generation!

This can either be a great day for this generation, or, a mark against us in our ignorance.
Marijuana, as it turns out DOES cure at least five types of cancer:
As well as, when used in conjunction with smoking, calms the tremors in MS patients, CP patients, and even improves the memories of Alzheimer patients. 
Unlike Surgery or radiation treatments, both quite steadily used by doctors and hospitals, and chemo therapy which basically kills an entire segment of the patient with the hopes of reviving the patient but not the cancer. All the methods used by the medical establishment to cure cancer quite barbaric and medieval when compared to eating a pea sized solution of good marijuana, which, by the way, will NOT get a person high, but the active ingredient makes the body create the very chemical needed to kill the cancer cells.
In essence, marijuana helps the brain to create these cancer eating cells much as the blood system creates white blood cells to battle infection.

And, as I am not a doctor, perhaps you would like to know just who  states this?
Harvard study released on April 17, 2007 shows that the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread!
Researchers at Harvard tested the chemical THC in both lab and mouse studies. They say this is the first set of experiments to show that the compound, THC actually naturally produced receptors to fight off lung cancer.

that's right up there with smarter than I, as well as PROVEN results on rats and mice. But the testing has been progressing steadily and the answers are turning up consistently that the THC in marijuana can and does cure cancer...

The ominous part is that this isn't the first time scientists have discovered that THC shrinks tumors. In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had been funded by the NATIONAL INSTITUTE 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.

So, in an ex-president Nixonesque move, the NIH actually tried to create damaging reports of marijuana and THC, only to find themselves converting doctors and physicians who did the studies into believers that, indeed, the THC content of marijuana 
Now, you may ask why did I say "Nixonesque" and I will tell you.
Because ex-President Nixon commissioned a bulldog of a Republican to do the most extensive study ever done on marijuana. Raymond P. Shafer did exactly that, his commission and team collected evidence from medical studies, law studies, arrests tallies, environmental studies, and in the end found that marijuana was being used as a political tool of pandering to the public. 

The National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse was created by Public Law 91-513 to study marijuana abuse in the United States. While the Controlled Substance Act was being drafted in a house committee in 1970, Assistant Secretary of Health Roger Egeberg had recommended that marijuana temporarily be placed in schedule I, the most restrictive category of drugs, pending the Commission's report. On March 22, 1972, the Commission's Chairman, Raymond P. Shafer, presented a report to Congress and the public entitled "Marijuana, A Signal of Misunderstanding" which favored ending marijuana prohibition and adopting other methods to discourage use. The Commission's report acknowledged that, decades earlier, "the absence of adequate understanding of the effects of the drug" combined with "lurid accounts of [largely unsubstantiated] Marijuana atrocities" greatly affected public opinion and labeled the stereotypical user as "physically aggressive, lacking in self-control, irresponsible, mentally ill and, perhaps the most alarming, criminally inclined and dangerous." However, the commission found that the drug typically inhibited aggression "by pacifying the user... and generally produced states of drowsiness, lethargy, timidity, and passivity."
After the Commission's widespread study and analysis, it concluded that "Looking only at the effects on the individual, there is little known danger of physical or psychological harm from the experimental or intermittent use of the natural preparations of cannabis.
Specifically, the Commission recommended "a social control policy seeking to discourage marijuana use, while concentrating primarily on the prevention of heavy or very heavy use." The report noted that society can provide incentives for certain behavior without prosecuting the unwilling, citing the example that "the family unit and institute of marriage are preferred means of group-living and child-rearing in our society. As a society, we are not neutral. We officially encourage matrimony by giving couples favorable tax treatment; but we do NOT compel people to get married."
The Commission recommended decriminalization of simple possession;
The criminal law is too harsh a tool to apply to personal possession even in the effort to discourage use. It implies an overwhelming indictment of the behavior which we believe is not appropriate. The actual and potential harm of use of the drug is not great enough to justify intrusion by the criminal law into private behavior, a step which our society takes only with the greatest reluctance.
The commission found that the constitutionality of marijuana prohibition was suspect, and that the  executive and legislative branches had a responsibility to obey the Constitution, even in the absence of a court ruling to do so:
 While the judiciary is the governmental institution most directly concerned with the protection of individual liberties, all policy-makers have a responsibility to consider our constitutional heritage when framing public policy. Regardless of whether or not the couurts would overturn a prohibition of possession of marijuana for personal use in the home, we are neccessarily influenced by the high place traditionally occupied by the value of Privacy in our constitutional scheme.
The Commission also found that "the use of drugs for pleasure or other non-medical purposes is not inherently irresponsible; alcohol is widely used as an acceptable part of social activities." 

And so we come to my original statement up there...
Will we be regarded as the generation that found the cure to cancer as well as re-ushered in freedom, as well as open the door to countless jobs?
Will we be remembered as we remember curmudgeons who claimed that the horse and buggy will ALWAYS be the chief means of travel, and that MAN Can Never Fly!
