    It’s Time to Wake Up And See That Cannabis Can Help Others

    It is very unfortunate that a prominent senator from such a prominent political family should be stricken with such a life-threatening brain tumor. It is more unfortunate, however, that a real cure has not been found for these types of cancers by now with all of the technology at our disposal. Fifty percent of patients with this type of tumor die within a year and most are dead within three years. It is also very unfortunate that we have suppressed research into the one plant which may be that cure.

    Research on cannabis (marijuana) has been suppressed in this country for more than 35 years. The only research that was allowed after the Shafer Commission report told President Nixon that marijuana possession should not justify criminalizing the American public, was research to prove it was harmful. Since they couldn’t find anything harmful, they didn’t allow any at all.

    In the past decade doctors in Spain, Italy and Israel have published dozens of medical research papers, showing that components of cannabis actually stop the growth of cancer tumors and in many cases reduce them to nothing, with no damage to living cells. A human trial has even been conducted on the exact same kind of tumor as Sen. Ted Kennedy’s with great results. This information is readily available on the Internet, yet our government sees fit to continue its war against cannabis and therefore its war on patients.

    Ted Kennedy may be cured of this brain cancer, but it won’t happen in the United States of America. He would have to “volunteer” for “research” in another country. That makes it a hard decision for a U.S. senator.

    The most unfortunate thing of all is that we have millions of people in this country who could benefit from this herb we call a drug, yet they will go to jail if they use it. This is a plant that is proven less harmful than alcohol or tobacco, less addictive than caffeine and more beneficial than many, many dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. When will we wake up and learn that Mother Nature will always be kinder to us than we will be to ourselves?
