Does Government Suppress Marijuana Truths?

Recent studies have reached the interesting conclusion that marijuana is a cancer preventer. One was done in California, funded by the government, designed to link marijuana and lung cancer. The government's hope was that if it were proved that marijuana causes lung cancer, then it could argue that we certainly should not legalize it. But the study showed that even after heavy use there was absolutely no connection between marijuana and lung cancer. The doctor conducting the study also concluded that marijuana seemed to act as a cancer preventer.

Other studies done at European universities have reached the conclusion that among many cancer cell lines, if the cannabinoids in marijuana are present when a cell goes defective, the cell dies every time. Simple cancer is a defective cell, not dying as it should, but replicating. A German study published in the Jan. 2 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute said cannabinoids were found to slow the spread of lung and cervical cancer tumors and may also have an anti-cancer effect.

The Drug Enforcement Administration, not too long ago, was reprimanded by its own law judge for continually rejecting the application of a New England professor for the marijuana to do real research. Last I checked he had been waiting six years for an approval, and I think he is still waiting.

So, is it possible that the DEA is culpable in the deaths of cancer patients ever since they first rejected an honest request for marijuana to do research? Are our legislators using the war on drugs to scare the people to get re-elected? Would the government ignore the welfare of its own citizens to continue this wasteful and misguided policy?

Americans need to start demanding the answers to these questions now! The cure for cancer could be in our hands. When do you think the DEA will allow us to find out?

Do you really think they want to find a cure for cancer? Not in the U.S.

Financial gain is the only reason people in the U.S. do anything. So what makes them more money, extending life with drugs and chemo and doctors, or curing it?

Seeing that there are more people employed by cancer then actually have it, the answer is easy.
