What if Cannabis Cured Cancer? (2011 Documentary)

What If Cannabis Cured Cancer - 2011 Recommended Documentary

This documentary is filled with great information for those people who are just learning about cannabis

“Using original and archival footage,”WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” presents highly convincing evidence that this forbidden herb has healing properties beyond any other plant on the planet— interacting as it does with the body’s own “endocannabinoid system” to keep us fit and disease-free. “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.

FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST “I recommend an excellent documentary film, ‘WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER,” by Len Richmond, which 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 cancer prevention and treatment.”- ANDREW WEIL, M.D.”

Irish Mother’s Passionate Rally Cry For Access To Cannabis For Her Daughter

We previously posted some videos on Irish Mother Vera Twomey’s campaign to get access to whole cannabis plant medicine for her daughter Ava – A Mother On A Mission – Cannabis Revolution For Ireland?

Ava suffers from a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome which causes her severe seizures. Cannabis has shown to reduce and even completely stop seizures in people. Ava is on CBD oil which has massively reduced her seizures but hasn’t completely eradicated them. CBD is legal in Ireland but Ava needs a whole cannabis plant medicine, which is the full spectrum of cannabinoids – including THC.

In this video, Published on Apr 8, 2017 by communities against water charges  on Youtube sees Vera passionately address the large crowd gathered to protest water charges in Ireland’s capitol city, Dublin. Vera makes a very interesting point by asking why should she and her daughter facilitate the government by leaving the country to gain access to cannabis where it is legal to do so. A question that every family could ask when in a similar situation, especially when they know cannabis can alleviate problems and save lives. Cannabis has been shown to help with thousands of diseases and ailments but governments continue to deny it to citizens who need it most, which is unfortunately to the advantage of the big pharmaceutical companies. Please find out what is going on locally and get involved wherever you are in the world, we need to end the madness of cannabis prohibition….

“On a beautiful sunny day in Dublin, Vera once again made the trek from Cork to Dublin to speak to the crowd about her struggle to get her daughter Ava who is 7 years, old medicinal cannabis to control her seizures from a rare form of epilepsy called Dravits Syndrome. Make it medicine, Make it Happen!”

Legalisation of medicinal cannabis would verge on the immoral, says Irish pharmacist politician

Kate O’Connell rejects claim that medical marijuana Bill would cut overdoses and save lives

Proposals to legalise medicinal cannabis are “madness” and “verging on the immoral”, the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Health has been told by the Fine Gael TD Kate O’Connell. O’Connell, a practising pharmacist in Dublin, said the proposals would undermine existing regulations that are designed to protect the public.

She was responding to the People before Profit TD Gino Kenny, who said his Cannabis for Medicinal Use Regulation Bill would save lives by reducing overdoses from other drugs. Ms O’Connell said the arguments for legalisation rested on “fake facts”, anecdote and hearsay, separate from scientific evidence about the effectiveness and safety of cannabis.

“I see this Bill as undermining the current regulatory framework we have with the Health [Products] Regulatory Authority and the Pharmaceutical Society of Ireland, who are internationally recognised as the competent authorities,” she told the committee.

She pointed out that a recent report from the authority found a complete lack of clinical and scientific evidence for medicinal cannabis and that patients can already obtain a cannabis product provided that a competent, qualified hospital consultant judges that it is needed. Ms O’Connell asked what would happen if a person with epilepsy had a fit after taking medicinal cannabis and then crashed a car. “On whose hands is that?”

She added that after speaking against the Bill at a previous meeting she had endured “10 days of vile abuse” online

Why Marijuana is illegal ? – Epic Joe Rogan Rant

This is an epic compilation video of Joe Rogan explaining (and passionately ranting in parts) why the cannabis plant is illegal.

It helps connect some of the dots you may be missing in the complexity of the so called ‘war on drugs’ – which is really a war on people…mostly poor people. The video is accompanied by a nice background track and some simple but effective images that really helps drive Joe’s points home…The ‘war on drugs’ is the cause of the real harm but is kept in it’s perpetual state to profit a small number of already extremely rich people…
