Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

I'm a disabled Vet with 4 rods 2 pins. Degenerative disc disease, Type 2 Bipolar disorder, PTSD, insomnia and others. I'm medical card holder for the past 2 years. I have been able to cut 3/4 of the prescription drugs out of my life because of medical marijuana. I am able to be a productive member of my family now. I used to be a walking zombie drooling on myself because of all the drugs and interactions they had with each other. Now I get to be a grandfather and a husband again. I am very thankful for this program and so is my family. This stuff works we need to stop fighting this. So many people can benefit from this.

We need to get our Governors to read the real science, not the crap bogus crap they have been spewing for since 1937. They need to see us face to face...

We need our Governors to read the real science and what they herd or read about 20 years ago, that's all bogus science and has been proven to be so.

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

Som3.scientist. hasn't figured out this is not medicine. Rather over 500 essential nutrients required by the endo cannabinoid and other systems of your body's 210 cells health or homeostasis and these bafoons still want to call of medicine only to legitimize their jobs as doctoes. Research is massive on these compounds with over 40,000 reports already available and a shyte load of ancillary historical.data that just screams at you who this plant really is amd these idiots want to play games. This is the sacred Tree of Life And through her we attain good health, sustainable and longevity with virtually zero disease. That's what happens when it is used regularly as a FOOD a source of vivital.akd essentiap.nutrients.do your god damn reading, mr. Scientist. It's already there, the answers. I did and I'm only at somewhere approaching having read over 26,000 reports in the past 34 months. If someone, anyone tells me we need more research I want them to do it to my face, so I can punch them in theirs. The biggest and last con these animals want to shove.up.oir asses. This plant virtually 3nds disease if you fucking eat it every day.qnd consume not only.the 48 admitted nutrients,about half fatty acids and all the terpenoids, terpenes and cannabinoids, about 240 alone of these, plus a host of other types, double the amino acid types, a number of 100% use able protein s, one, edestin, a.know genetic repairants comprises about 63% of the seed oil and albumin qlso, another 30%. Jesus Christ these people are either completely.stupid or bold face liqrs. Scientist? Don't make me.laugh.

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

Jeg er kronisk smertepatient efter ulykke for 12 år siden. Intet medicin har virket. Medicinsk cannabis har fjernet mine smerter, angst og depression. Jeg tager både cbd og thc olie og har nu fået livet tilbage. Her i Danmark er det også ulovligt med vi er mange syge der bruger det og sætter vores liv over loven.

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

Well Jeff, I have done as you recommended. However, I seriously wonder if this has any effect at all. I also have to wonder about the expense of having someone answer the phone to take my comment and relay it "supposedly" to the President. I am not quite sure why money is being wasted this way rather than having a comment line where our views are recorded. I don't feel that having someone take my comment in person is any more reliable that the President will hear it or care.

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

I have suffered with chronic pain for 12 years and just last year I was formally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.. As I had suffered for so long it first started out as I had suffered a herniated disc and after several years and $1,000`s of dollars later I was told I had degenerative disc disease but they still couldn't understand why I had so much pain other than looking at me as I just wanted drugs.. And Finally 2014 I was able to get the diagnosis that made much sense Fibromyalgia!! Although I was relieved to finally be able to put a name to what I have been suffering from, I am still not Free to be able to use a God given plant that is used as medicine.. I Have tried all pain meds, and over counter meds, all meds for fibromyalgia, and some anti depressants along with other meds to try to help and all I got was more pain and sickness, more agitation and Very Depressed and I fell into a deep Dark place and I didn't want to do anything or go anywhere in fear of my Anxiety..I became very Moody and very Emotional I hated who I became although I always switched up my meds so I wouldn't become a victim to addiction of pain meds I still didn't like the way it made me feel and seeing so many fall deep into ADDICTION I finally took myself off of everything except I take Tramadol once a day when needed so I may not take it everyday because I really don't want to, but if I use Cannabis then I face going to Jail or my kids taken from me.. I think it is so ridiculous we can't have the freedom to this miraculous plant giving the fact that it has medical and health benefits, but of course we can Drink Alcohol to get High and this has many different ways it kills, as well as pills that get you High and kill also in many ways, including cigarettes, sleeping pills, and of course our very own Food, yes people our Food is killing us!! Let's take a stand for our Freedom to have access to a Natural Drug that has good benefits and let's just say when compared to these other drugs, Cannabis is the only thing that makes sense..

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

Let's hear what the government experts, the DEA said; In 1988, DEA Administrative Judge Francis Young wrote in his ruling;
"Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within a supervised routine of medical care."

Re: “It's Official: Marijuana Is Medicine

For Cancer patients, for kids suffering from Seizures, and for so many others, safe, legal, access to Medical Marijuana is a matter of life and death. Please call the whitehouse comment line at (202) 456-1111 and ask that the President have Marijuana removed from Schedule 1. Ask everyone you know to call them too, and to keep calling until he does it.

I'm a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research. The clinical evidence of the value of Marijuana as a life saving medicine is now so strong that the need to remove Marijuana from Schedule 1 has become a moral imperative. Google Medical Marijuana testimonials. Google Medical Marijuana Cancer Patient Testimonials.

This weekend over 3,000 Americans died, in pain, of Cancer. Every single day, 1,500 Americans die of Cancer after suffering horribly. it. Every single minute another American dies of Cancer. Every American Cancer patient deserves the right to have safe, legal, and economical access to Medical Marijuana. Every single one.

Americans who need Medical Marijuana shouldn't be used as "Political Footballs" Please call the Whitehouse comment line at (202) 456-1111 and ask that the President take immediate action to remove Marijuana from Schedule 1 so American Physicians in all 50 states can prescribe it.

Oncologists have know it for more than a quarter of a Century that Marijuana is a "wonder drug" for helping Cancer patients
.
The American Society of Clinical Oncologists wants Marijuana removed from Schedule 1. So does the American Medical Association, the professional society of all Physicians. A strong majority of Americans want Physicians in all 50 states to be able to prescribe Medical Marijuana. So do their Physicians., Cancer patients can't wait.

The need to immediately, completely, legalize Marijuana throughout the world is one of the most pressing moral issues of our time, because of its medical benefits and because of the damage prohibition causes to America and to the world.

Complete legalization is critical -- its vital that there aren't "strings" or "hoops" that Cancer patients and others who need Medical Marijuana are forced to jump through
.
"Charlottes web" is NOT the solution. Cancer patients and people who suffer from chronic pain need THC, not just CBD. The "Berkeley study", where 96% of stage 4 Cancer patients who had a wide variety of Cancers achieved remission, used high dose Medical Marijuana oil, 72% THC, 28% CBD, 1 gram/day (oral) over a 90 day course of treatment. It was a small study, and not placebo controlled, but those kinds of results are clearly remarkable, have been widely reported on in the press, and demand the need for immediate large scale clinical trials.

More and more present and former members of law enforcement agree about the need to end prohibition, and have formed a rapidly expanding group of current and former undercover cops, FBI, DEA, prosecutors and Judges, from all over the world, called

LEAP -- Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

because they've seen the damage prohibition causes to America and the world.

See http://www.leap.cc/

I'm a Scientist. Not a politician, not a cop.

But as a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research, I feel even more strongly about the need to ensure that no Cancer patient is denied it, because I'm so impressed with its benefits for Cancer patients.

I urge everyone reading this to PLEASE call and email the Attorney General, the press, Congress and the President today.

Medical Marijuana helps with Alzheimer's, Autism, Cancer, seizures, PTSD and chronic pain, and has helped many Americans, including many veterans, stop using Alcohol, and hard drugs, both legal and illegal ones.

Every minute an American dies of Cancer.

Every 19 minutes an American dies of a prescription drug overdose.

Many vets become addicted to prescription opiates and die from them.

NOBODY has ever died from smoking too much pot.

Cancer patients are seeing remarkable results using high dose Medical Marijuana oil, in many cases achieving complete remission, even for stage 4 cancers -- there are many excellent articles on the web, and videos on youtube with patient's personal stories about their experiences with it -- and every Cancer patient that uses Marijuana to ease their suffering benefits greatly from doing so.

It is immoral to leave Marijuana illegal, for anyone, for even a second longer.

For Cancer patients, its a matter of life and death.

Cancer patients can't wait.

Medical Marijuana has an unmatched safety profile, and for people who suffer from so many diseases, of so many kinds, its a medical miracle -- and the scientific evidence behind it is rock solid.

For Cancer patients, Medical Marijuana encourages apoptosis and autophagy of Cancer cells, while leaving normal cells untouched, is anti-angigogenic, anti-proliferative, and is anti-angiogenic.

Its also synergistic with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, making both more effective.
For many Cancer patients its meant the difference between life and death.

For everyone else, its a far safer alternative to Alcohol, and infinitely safer than Cigarettes.

Either take them off the market too, or legalize Marijuana right now.

2016 is too far away, Its too long to wait. Every year we lose more Americans to Cancer than died in WWII.

Between now and the 2016 elections, roughly 1 MILLION Americans will die of Cancer.

And Its a horrible way to die.

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

Label me hardcore, I guess. The notion of a benign but intensely partisan governor's office overseeing cannabis regulation is one of the biggest pipe dreams to be found in AB 266. Remember Ah-nold? Christine Whitman? Pete Wilson and George Deukmejian, for crying out loud? Why don't we put the governor in charge of alcohol and tobacco regs while we're at it?

There's nothing historic about seeing a bad bill pass the Legislature when more meaningful reforms are sorely needed. Nothing in Brown's portfolio suggests he is remotely interested in fair and balanced cannabis regulations. Rather, he has unleashed the regulatory hounds and we are so excited about getting any form of attention from the Legislature that some advocates are actually promoting AB 266 as real reform. Considering every city and county in California can opt out of the regs from Day One, banning everything that state law provides for, including dispensaries and personal cultivation, I'll save the term "historic" for Legalization 2016. Even then, I'll wait to see what watered-down initiative gets passed before I celebrate.

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

Really, credit is due to the Assembly! Bonta's office has worked hard. Also, the McGuire Senate bill 643 seemed the best. What's up with that bill?
The restricted areas of the state will fold eventually with successful, implemented regulation and legislation. Like "the war on drugs" marijuana demonization lingers stubbornly. It's becoming daylight in California, and America, eventually, the long time existing burgeoning marijuana industry.
