The Cannabis debate

I came across a very interesting article posted on Facebook last night, claiming that Cannabis in pure oil form can cure cancer. Yes, cure. I know you’re probably casting your eyes to the ceiling, after all there are so many articles out there claiming to cure cancer, and lets face it, most of them are total scams that take vulnerable people who are so desperate to try anything, for a complete ride whilst raising their hopes sky high, only to be cruelly devastated in the end.

This article however is interesting for the simple fact that there are many links at the end of it, inviting you to do your own research into the topic and not just to take the authors word for it. The literature claims that the US government has known since 1974 that cannabis cures cancer. In 72′ Richard Nixon wanted a larger budget for his war on drugs, and thought that if he could prove that Cannabis caused lung cancer like normal cigarettes do, then he would get the support he needed. He gave the Medical College of Virginia 2 years to do a study on the effects of THC on the body. In 74′ the study was completed and it turns out that THC, when ingested in highly concentrated forms such as eating Cannabis oil, will attack any mutated cells in your body while strengthening and rejuvenating the healthy cells. Not only that, it had no side effects whatsoever. Really does sound too good to be true doesn’t it? It was even shown to combat super bugs like MRSA. Apparently when Nixon saw the report he was furious and threw the entire report in the trash, deeming the study highly classified information. In 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research and granted exclusive rights to major pharmaceutical companies, who then set out to try and develop synthetic versions, but never successfully achieved that.

I think it’s worth mentioning that smoking cannabis has been shown to harm the lungs, but drinking it in concentrated oil form is a completely different story.

The only reason why we found out about the study a few years ago was thanks to dedicated medical and law professionals who filed Freedom of Information requests. The government of course lied about these studies for various reasons, and probably one of the biggest and first reasons that springs to mind is of course Pharmaceutical companies.  They spend billions every year lobbying to keep the use of Cannabis illegal because they make trillions out of unsuspecting people like you and I, who would sacrifice their life savings if it came to it, just to have very expensive cancer treatments in order to stay alive, and all the while they’re happily pocketing the money.Cannebis image

Now, I have to stress once again that I’m not saying this is all true beyond a shadow of a doubt. I think however that it is worth looking into further. I know too, that one can do all the research in the world on the internet, but those are just articles. How do we ascertain beyond a shadow of a doubt that these radical accusations and claims are true? Make a couple of calls to high places? Beats me, but I will leave you with the following websites to visit. Read the articles and decide for yourselves. Me?   If my doctor had to tell me tomorrow that my cancer had become terminal and that I no options left for treatment, I would be open to trying anything, and as long as I was certain that cannabis wouldn’t do me any harm if I did try it, I’d definitely give it a try. Hell, what more would I have to lose at that point. Nothing…that’s what.
