Healing with Cannabis 2

  1. Healing with Cannabis

    When should inhumane laws made by men supersede human suffering?

    What right does anyone have to forbid the use of a plant that has not been proven to do great harm?
    Alcohol and Cigarettes are legal all over the world....consumers are encouraged LEGALLY by advertising to use them. Many thousands die from using these LEGAL poisons. They have been proven harmful to all humanity. And still profits are made at this terrible cost of life and pain.

    The real message is what is happening here on OGF (www.oregongreenfree.com).
    People are TALKING about the things they can do....after using Medical Cannabis. Sharing the information that comes from their own experiences.
    Talking about strains of Medical Cannabis that give the most relief for their ailments.
    Talking about being able to give up potent LEGAL intoxicants like Oxycontin and Vicodin and many other pharmaceuticals with debilitating side effects.
    Medical Cannabis is working for them better than anything else now available.

    Anybody here have tremors from the side effects of Medical Cannabis?
    Today a friend told me about a woman in the nursing home she works in.
    They (her physician) gave this patient a new anxiety drug and the side effects are so bad, the woman can't feed herself anymore from the tremors (known side effect of this drug).

    Medical Cannabis may not work for everyone....but the right to have a choice in the matter should not be up to any government, and laws that are not compassionate WILL be ignored. It is HUMAN NATURE and perhaps the first law in self-preservation (since before mankind lived in caves), to find what will ease your suffering.

    IMHO Good governments and good laws are our destiny, and it is our duty to pursue that goal. We need to pick leaders that know this TRUTH:
    Cannabis is very effective as a medicant for a vast array of human ailments.
    Cannabis has been unfairly demonized by the WAR ON DRUGS.
    It is time to go after real criminals and stop arresting sick people.

    Is the United States Federal Government Really Delaying Clinical Research?

    Nearly everyone (including the American and Oregon Medical Associations and American Cancer Society) supports research efforts involving marijuana as medicine. The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) www.maps.org/mmj is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit research and educational organization. Please learn for yourself and make up your own mind about the current climate for clinical research. Please recall that under our current U.S. federal system of laws, it is illegal for doctors to prescribe marijuana/cannabis as medicine even to dying and suffering patients to whom we routinely give drugs
    such as morphine.* from Dr Bayers web page.

    What do you think? Should we take up the banner for these victims of questionable laws? March in your city, and wave those banners in the Million Marijuana March in your part of the world.

    Copy and paste letters and articles, even this letter: I humbly release this energy into the Universe to help educate, regarding the beneficial use of Medical Cannabis.

    These are only my opinions and thoughts and are not meant to be offensive or cause harm.

    I embrace the world with healing energy and lovingkindness for it CAN change the world.
