Does cannabis really fight cancer?

Wasn’t it nice when we were kids. We believed what we were told and then took a nap. As adults, doing the same thing has let big business run riot with our environment and our health. Drilling in the Arctic is a good idea. Who cares about its pristine environment the profit depraved, psychopaths in suits say. Fast food is good for you their studies have found. Load up on sugar and salt like it is going out of business!

But we are not children, and we are responsible for both ourselves and our environment. Each of us has an important role to play. From simple acts of kindness to examples of incredible bravery (Edward Snowden) we all must play our part. For reasons of greedy profiteering cannabis has been prohibited by the world. America lead the charge against the plant based on racial propaganda. Over the decades this initial propaganda was reinforced with new arguments based solely on ideological ideas rather than scientific facts. In 1947 the US government studied cannabis and its effects on epilepsy. It was clearly shown that cannabis was a cure for the affliction. This was not the kind of information that the government wanted to release so they suppressed it! In 1974 at the Medical College of Virginia, scientists looked at how cannabis affects cancer cells. To the displeasure of the government, they found that cannabis kills cancer cells. Again this information was kept secret. There was a drugs war to be fought, even if the drug they were fighting was perhaps the greatest medicinal plant that will ever be known to man.

Below are a list of scientific studies done on cannabis and cancer. They all show that the plant helps fight the deadly threat of cancer. The power of the internet spreads information and connects people. I hope this helps to do both.

Blood cancer is deadly because it can carry the damaged cells throughout the body. Three different studies attest to cannabis’ ability to fight this type of cancer.

And finally brain cancer. Because our brains are so delicate, operating is a drastic step. Cannabis easily gets into the brain and helps fight cancer there.

These studies have been carried out inspite of the ban on cannabis. When we finally have an end to pot prohibition we can properly explore the benefits of medical marijuana. Shame on anyone who denies the medical properties of cannabis. We don’t need toxic pills for most of our modern day illnesses. We need good diets, exercise and a little of mother nature’s cannabis plant.
