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.

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

water? I have grown marijuana indoors and I never used 1 gallon a day much less 6 gallons a day. Did know that alfalfa uses 15% of the water for California. Then after growing the alfalfa they ship it off to China cows to eat. talk about stupid... Leagalize Marijuana for recreational use.

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

It is disgraceful that BOE finds it appropriate to tax MEDICINE. When recreational Cannabis is legalized next year, I expect a medical tax exemption to be included in its code. Make it happen!

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

If AB 266 passes, it won't mean the end of "the century-long war on marijuana," it will be a mere retrenching of the war to the "ban-wagon" counties. Part of the reason LE is supporting this bill is surely that it preserves a large pool of potential arrestees for them in prime Northern California growing territory.

Re: “A Tectonic Shift for Marijuana

If they can keep us from growing it they can control the price. Grow your freedom and the economy by growing your own!
Unconstitutional ex-post facto laws will naturally and ALWAYS be defied.
The only drugs that are controlled are the drugs that the people demand.
Re-legalize drugs. All of them. The drug problem was created and multiplied when we turned human nature into criminal behavior.

Re: “Bay Area Medical Pot Takes One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

On Vallejo -- "to ask the city council for a total of $260,000 over two years".

They are asking for at least $500,000 total just to pay for the two legal positions for two years. That would not include the police costs. Anyone who wants to watch the video of the latest council meeting (3/24) in which 100 cannabis supporters showed up and around 50 spoke at the meeting which lasted until midnight, can go here -- http://www.ci.vallejo.ca.us/city_hall/city…

Re: “Bay Area Medical Pot Takes One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Berkeley just closed a dispensary a couple of weeks ago. They forced the house of compassion to close. Why was their fight not included in the article? Because they were black owned business?
