I plead guilty to brain cancer and cannabis

31 January 2013, 16:00
I plead guilty.

My crime?

Brain cancer.

My potential cure?

Is years behind development thanks to propaganda and has plenty of scientific publications and existing medicines indicating cure for  my disease and other cancers potentially  lie in the CBD component found in the cannabis plant:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=brain%20cancer%20cannabis

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-19760397

My sentence?


Death (I hope not) and probably 30 years of what could have been a good quality life.

How is brain cancer a crime?

The dame flawed laws deem  that the substance that could save my life is  remain illegal have lead to my conviction as it is deemed that cannbis may impact me mentally (ignore the fact that it may add 40 years to my life) thus I plead guilty for being born with a rouge cell in my brain that has impacted me mentally irrespective.

Brain surgery should be illegal too...

That's no way for me to thank my neurosurgeons is it (I apologize)?

Well it's not my stance, but the public support of laws that read(simplified):
" Outlaw anything that could affect the mental health of an individual. Be it good, bad or unproven."  Try having a brain surgery (or 4) and see if you're the same mentally.

Scientific research on cannabis has shown it to potentially be a pathway to a cure for many cancers (see link above from BBC and look on pubmed).

Years behind from propaganda that could probably have saved someones who faded away whilst you read this article.

The pioneers of medicine

Are extinct. Loss of freedoms to pioneer our own medicines from any natural substance has lead to the extinction of pioneers of any disease you can imagine left to a small group of people in a distant country.

Alexander Flemming struck it lucky, had freedom to do so and turns in his grave when hearing how 7 000 000 00 have handed their rights of health from birth to death into a fraction of people's hands and thrown their rights to pioneer medicine to the hands of draconian laws.

Is Rick Simpson an Alexander Flemming of his time?

You can do your own research on that on YouTube. Personally I would not go to YouTube as my first reference for finding testimonies as there could be many a fraud who has profited greatly through a conspiracy video or two on YouTube.

Rick Simpson appearshas made no money. Giving his cure freely and showing the world how to potentially make their own. Another  issue that needs to be discussed is health fraud- a furnace that stems from distrust and denial of freedoms that serve as ignition sources combined with the laws that prohibit the pioneering of medicine by any member of the public (who  of course should also prove it to be worthy and safe as a treatment) for the intended use. Innocents also run to fraud after finding out laws further mandate that doctors wait for the scientific studies when patients can', but refuse (doctors) to be fight for their own right to be a building block of medicne by trying a safely tested medicine  for another condition that has  been shown to have relevance to another disease.. I refer you to "Sativex" a cannabis based medicine that is used for MS and could at least be tried upon me given that the same phramaceutical has a patent based on the same compund in development toward my brain tumor:

patent:#gwp42002

I rest my case

I am ill and was born with this.  Myself and others receive something short of a death sentence knowing that cures lurk in the near future, but have been stifled by propaganda and loss of rights of the public to pioneer medicine on their own. Apparently we are less capable or have inferior capabilities to even "take a leap of faith" and "strike it lucky" like Alexander Flemming.

If you're a doctor

I question you if you read this and don't act. Especially so if  you are amongst those who wait for the science behind everything. Perhaps take a refresher at medicine school and realize the freedoms and pioneering it took to get to everything we know in medicine today. Some of it waited for research, but in Alexander Flemming's case he pioneered it. Collectively doctors are closer to the powers that decide on laws and I know there are many a doctor who share my sentiments here. Hope someone acts.
