Transcription to follow: The Medical Marijuana the government supplies four of us today, has been grown at the University of Mississippi in Oxford since the ’70′s. It grows every year I guess. And they ship it to North Carolina and they get it rolled into papers, and then they look like a Pall Mall, I wish I had one now, but I am leaving tomorrow and all of those are gone. All I have in there now is my utencils and things like that. They don’t smell like marijuana sometimes, I don’t know. This new batch I can’t wait to get back home and really pay more attention because I automatically just took them out of the thing to make my oils, so I could bake with it and stuff because I have to concentrate because of the low THC. It didn’t dawn on me till after I was doing my little capsules, I’m looking at it, hey wait a minute, I haven’t had to clean this, this is clean. Oh my god, what is this, then I read, oh this is from last year. Wow that is awesome. That’s great. So I am looking forward to humidifying it, which you always have to do, because it is freeze-dried and then rerolling it and smoking it, or vaporizing it. I will definitely be doing both when I get home. I have to carry my cannabis with me, because I don’t want that suitcase to get lost with 6 tins a 6 month supply of marijuana for me. So what happens is, I just put it in my back pack, and my purse. I carry it with me all the time. And always wonder what craziness is gonna happen next. But I carry a little card

How to Win & Influence Congress, with Rep. Barney Frank

Examining legislative stategy and benefits of stopping the drug war, Rep Barney Frank,(D) MA, addresses the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML)in Washington, DC, April, 2001. Saying that the people are far ahead of the politicians on these issues, Rep.Frank also knows that an elected official will always give priority to constituants over lobbyists – if the constituants are actively expressing their wishes. Rep. Frank also states that voting and calling your Congressperson is much more effective than parades, etc. National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws: www.norml.org This video was produced by Cannabis TV http for the Western North Carolina chapter of Americans for Safe Access, as an instructive tool for understanding socio-political aspects of drug policy reform, especially for our goal of introducing legislation for protection of medical marijuana patients, caregivers and doctors. www.asawnc.org

Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 Opposed by the AMA (American Medical Association)

1936 – 1938: William Randolph Hearst’s newspaper empire fuels a tabloid journalism propaganda campaign against marijuana. Articles with headlines such as Marihuana Makes Fiends of Boys in 30 Days; Hasheesh Goads Users to Blood-Lust create terror of the killer weed from Mexico. Through his relentless misinformation campaign, Hearst is credited with bringing the word marijuana into the English language. In addition to fueling racist attitudes toward Hispanics, Hearst papers run articles about marijuana-crazed negroes raping white women and playing voodoo-satanic jazz music. Driven insane by marijuana, these blacks — according to accounts in Hearst-owned newspapers — dared to step on white men’s shadows, look white people directly in the eye for more than three seconds, and even laugh out loud at white people. For shame! 1936: DuPont obtains a patent license to manufacture synthetic plastic fibers from German industrial giant IG Farben Corporation. The patent license is obtained as part Germany’s reparation payments to the United States after World War I. A few years later, IG Farben manufactures deadly Zyklon-B gas, used in Nazi death camps to murder millions of Jews (along with many homosexuals and drug users). DuPont owned and financed approximately 30% of Hitler’s IG Corps, the military-industrial backbone of the fascist Third Reich. 1937: The year the federal government outlawed cannabis. — DuPont patents petrochemical manufacturing processes for making plastics, as

More Medical Marijuana Doctors Press Releases

Medical Cannabis, Past & Future, with Michael Aldrich, PhD

April 5.2008 – After Fifth Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, held in Pacific Grove, CAMichael Aldrich, PhD, looks back to 1964, tracing the roots of the “marijuana movement” in America and Dr. Raphael Mechoulam’s isolation of THC in Israel. Citing new science and research since the “discovery” of the Endo-Cannabinoid System in 1989 and it’s role throughout the body, Dr. Aldrich examines medical Cannabis in the 21st century, anticipating many aspects and applications of this remarkable plant. Conference hosted by Patients Out of Time. DVDs are available. medicalcannabis.com

Could the chemicals found in marijuana prevent and even heal several deadly cancers? Discover the truth about this ancient medicine as world-renowned scientists in the field of cannabinoid research illustrate their truly mind-blowing discoveries. “What if Cannabis Cured Cancer” explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the “endocannabinoids” inside us, along with any cannabinoids we ingest, fit together like a key in a lock. Thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body’s healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis, and perhaps even the future of medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor Peter Coyote. QUOTES: “What If Cannabis Cured Cancer summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for prevention and treatment. This documentary presents compelling evidence that our current policy on cannabis is counterproductive and foolish. An excellent film.” -Andrew Weil, MD *** “A hugely important film.” -Julie Holland, MD NYU School of Medicine *** “What If Cannabis Cured Cancer brings to light a host of recent findings that have potentially game-changing implications for the future of marijuana as a medicine. A must-see film.” -Marijuana Policy Project Washington, DC *** SPECIAL BONUS: Comedy puppet short

British Citizenship – Medical Cannabis

In 2009 I was given the opportunity to take part in the BBC Citizenship project for British schools. I now finally qualify for Sativex. It’s actually wrongly advertised by British doctors as a complimentary medicine when it’s a ‘full on’ Disease Modifying Drug. It’s strange how slowly the law changes in the favour of the chronically ill. Some British patients are now traveling to the Netherlands for their cannabis medicine. Countries such as Germany and Denmark purchase Sativex, made by GW Pharmaceuticals, as pain and spasm relieving medicine. Sativex is a cannabis tincture that should be made more accessible to those in need. I am now the British representative for the the International Association of Cannabinoid Medicines (IACM) and recently delivered a presentation at a convention in Bonn, Germany. Her interest lies in ‘whole plant’ cannabis research and medical use. British laws stand in the way of essential cannabinoid research and development. Put ‘cannabinoid’ in Google and inform yourselves, if you please. Thank you.

Pam has the hepatitis C virus. Some of its symptoms can be similar to those of HIV. Treatment for hepatitis C is similar to chemotherapy for cancer. Cannabis can help Pam manage both the symptoms of hepatitis C and the side effects of effective treatment. Please help Pam and support a medical cannabis law in Illinois.

Has the War on Drugs Failed and Is It Time for the Feds to Back Off on OxyContin and Marijuana?

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 15, 2009

“The Prescription Addiction Radio Show – Breaking the Silence” has long focused on the growing misuse of prescription drugs and accused the drug companies, medical professionals, elected officials, public officials and regulatory boards of remaining silent on the growing epidemic of prescription drugs that has infected every community and street in our country. According to the State of Florida Medical Examiners Commission, the reported reality has become that about 70% of the drug related deaths in the State presently include a prescription drug. (http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/Content/getdoc/c75b8a3c-95ea-41d1-96c5-3b00c9c6eeb4/2008InterimReport.aspx)

The phrase “War on Drugs” was first used by President Nixon in 1969 and has come to symbolize the continuing challenge of stopping the influx of illegal drugs both being produced in our country and imported into our country. Judge Gray has been an outspoken critic of the method in which the War on Drugs has been waged. As a Judge, he has seen the damage and destruction drugs have done to individuals and families. As an author, he has both documented the damage and offered solutions.

Radio host Larry G and Novus Director Steve Hayes are not proponents for the legalization and decriminalization of drugs to solve the growing problem of drug misuse. According to Larry G, a registered pharmacist for over 30 years, the growing epidemic of legal narcotic prescription drugs is a clear indication that our country’s perspective on drugs continues to fall short. He also believes that the possible addiction to marijuana and negative outcomes from marijuana continue to be downplayed by the proponents of “medical legalization”. The radio show questions the logic of groups such as NORML, Drug Policy Alliance and Marijuana Policy Project.

Judge James P. Gray, Larry Golbom and Steve Hayes understand that dialog and discussion will bring about the realization that opponents and proponents for revising the drug policies in this country are closer together than most realize and, thus, closer to solutions. If you are interested in understanding not only the extent of the problem but what we each can do about the problem, then this is a show that you and your friends won’t want to miss.

The Prescription Addiction Radio Show is dedicated to exploring some of the challenges we face in trying to turn around the explosion in the misuse of prescription drugs.

The Prescription Addiction Radio Show believes that addiction is a predisposed disease, whether created by poor personal choices or created from following the advice of your doctor. No individual wishes it upon themselves.

Medical Cannabis Prescribed In Israeli Nursing Home

For more news visit ? english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ? http Add us on Facebook ? facebook.com Some medical patients suffer from such severe pain that no medicine can help. However, there is a natural remedy which can bring some relief. A geriatric home in Israel prescribes medical cannabis to some of their patients suffering from certain ailments. Here’s more from our Israeli bureau. At Hadarim Geriatric Home, medical cannabis is weighed and given to some of the patients. Among them… Moshe Rott. He receives medical cannabis as a powder mixed with tobacco. [Moshe Rott, Medical Cannabis Recipient]: “What does it do? It makes me tranquil and less uptight. I’m able to take it easy, and I feel restful. Before that my hands were in pain, like someone suffering from Parkinson’s disease. It stopped after three months. My hands don’t shake anymore, and it’s totally different.” A television program on medical cannabis caught the attention of the geriatric home’s head nurse. [Inbal Koren, Head Nurse, Hadarim Geriatric Home]: “We were simply looking for some kind of medicine that will bring relief… and we found it.” Since the 19th century, cannabis has been known to ease pain. And since 2008, the Israeli Ministry of Health has given limited permits for companies providing medical cannabis, allowing patients to use it for the relief of diseases and severe side effects. According to the Chairman of the Israeli Pharmaceutical Federation, there are some concerns that the

Church of Scientology Distributes Drug Abuse and Addiction Facts Internationally


Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 29, 2009

Members, friends and allies of Scientologists and Church of Scientology missions and churches in countries around the world are carrying out an all-out international effort this month to do something effective about drug abuse and addiction in their communities.

Treating April as “Drug Information Month,” volunteers distribute copies of 13 separate drug education booklets, which give simple and direct facts about drugs. These free booklets cover the effects of drugs such as marijuana, alcohol, prescription drugs, cocaine, heroine, crystal meth, crack, painkillers, LSD, Ecstasy, and Ritalin (known as “kiddie cocaine”), and show how these substances destroy a person’s health, creativity, family and relationships.

Scientologists distributed over 3,000 drug facts booklets in Hamburg, Germany, and thousands more in Berlin and Dusseldorf. Volunteers in Cagliari, Italy helped several hundred people learn the truth about drugs, many of whom asked for more booklets to pass on to their friends.

Teams in Marseilles, Angers, Clermont, Bordeaux, Nice and Lyon, France passed out more than 10,000 booklets. In Paris, volunteers went right to the most notorious neighborhoods in the city, passing out booklets to at-risk teenagers and youth while local police quietly stood by to guard against retaliation from drug dealers.

“Our booklets were in such high demand,” said one of the volunteers. “We had teachers coming up to us to ask for copies for their students, two medical doctors wanted them for their waiting rooms and a professor liked them so much he grabbed some booklets and joined us.”

In Amsterdam, where the sale of so-called “soft drugs” is legal and “coffee shop” is a code name for a hash bar, volunteers passed out over 500 drug education booklets. In Auckland, New Zealand volunteers handed out some 1,200 copies at a marketplace.

Countless lives are lost to drugs. Newspapers and TV news shows spotlight the famous artists who die from drug overdose, but most people have experienced personally the loss of a friend or family member through drug abuse. Many of those who resort to selling sex are supporting their habits. Our prisons are full of men and women who are there because they dealt drugs or are drug addicts who committed crimes to support their habits. Governments, nonprofit organizations and private individuals spend billions every year in an attempt to combat this tragedy.

Scientologists and Scientology churches, missions and groups partner with people from all faiths, professions and walks of life to do something effective to counter drug abuse.

Marijuana Study Shows No Lung Cancer Risk

Dr. Donald Tashkin UCLA Geffen School of Medicine Pt 2 of 2. Conclusion of 2 part interview with the famous research doctor from UCLA Geffen School of Medicine. Pulmonary research on use of marijuana and interaction with the lungs was funded by the Federal Government to prove that lung cancer is caused by smoking marijuana, however the results proved cannabis does not cause lung cancer. Cannabis was made illegal because the paper industry was split between the hemp and the wood pulp factions. The wood pulp people had more money and won, which caused a negative ripple effect in our society such as the loss of a valuable medicine. Since the prohibition of cannabis began the cancer rates have grown at an alarming rate. Cannabis is used for thousands of purposes and it’s loss of use has caused great hardship to everyone. It is time for truth to prevail and prohibition to stop.

Video in the public domain. Q. Does marijuana have any medical value? Any determination of a drug’s valid medical use must be based on the best available science undertaken by medical professionals. The Institute of Medicine conducted a comprehensive study in 1999 to assess the potential health benefits of marijuana and its constituent cannabinoids. The study concluded that smoking marijuana is not recommended for the treatment of any disease condition. In addition, there are more effective medications currently available. For those reasons, the Institute of Medicine concluded that there is little future in smoked marijuana as a medically approved medication. Advocates have promoted the use of marijuana to treat medical conditions such as glaucoma. However, this is a good example of more effective medicines already available. According to the Institute of Medicine, there are six classes of drugs and multiple surgical techniques that are available to treat glaucoma that effectively slow the progression of this disease by reducing high intraocular pressure. In other studies, smoked marijuana has been shown to cause a variety of health problems, including cancer, respiratory problems, increased heart rate, loss of motor skills, and increased heart rate. Furthermore, marijuana can affect the immune system by impairing the ability of T-cells to fight off infections, demonstrating that marijuana can do more harm than good in people with already compromised immune systems.
