The pharmaceutical industry started out trying to help. Now they are only helping themselves to our health and money. Shame on them and shame on us for not stopping this madness sooner.

We are left to assume governments know best but that is often not the case. Authority is warped and corrupted by big money interests. Cannabis activists are simply seeking to have their chosen intoxicant treated in the same manner as alcohol. Because we know alcohol is a much more dangerous substance than cannabis we didn’t think there would be a fuss. With freedom being eroded and the general population too docile to care, cannabis is kept illegal. In the limited testing to date, pot has scientifically been shown to kill cancer while leaving healthy cells alone. That is an amazing fact. History is going to wonder how we came to prohibit marijuana even after the health benefits started coming out. Big pharmaceutical companies stand to lose huge profits when cannabis is finally adopted as a wonder medical herb. Until then, growers will keep growing and activists will keep on pushing. Governments will keep doing what they are doing too, they will concern themselves with the maintenance of their privilege. What a crazy world, let’s all band together and get the cure for cancer legalized. I didn’t realize this was a radical notion, I thought it was an obviously compassionate one.
Expensive art on the walls, plush leather sofas and the faint whiff of rich oak. The top floor of a pharmaceutical company is rarefied, filtered air. America is the largest economy on the planet and the pharmaceutical industry is its biggest business. These chemical companies are so powerful within the political system that whatever regulations they want, they get. Globally these companies sell a cool trillion dollars worth of drugs. A trillion dollars in annual sales has bought planes, senators, countries and even common sense.
Cannabis cannot be patented (though they will certainly try to!) so it is of no use to these giant corporations. From all the great science coming out of Israel and Spain we can now clearly see that the plant is a health giving natural substance. The plant when consumed does two very important things. Firstly it is one of the most powerful anti inflammatory agents known to medicine (twice as effective as a cortisone injection) and secondly it regulates cell function. As we age, our bodies naturally develop wear and tear related injuries. These injuries become inflamed and cause pain. Cannabis can step in and bring down this inflammation. I have personally seen organically grown cannabis taking chronic pain away. Pot through regulating human cell functions can kill cancer cells. There are many examples of cannabis oil curing cancer. You see these charity organizations raising millions for cancer research, why isn’t it being used to investigate cannabis and cancer?
Pharmaceutical companies get the money that we raise at charity events and use it to develop drugs that prolong life, not cure the disease. So after getting free money, these pharma drug pushers then sell the drugs back to the public at an obscene profit. Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to the harsh, immoral world of capitalism. Profit before everything else, including sick, dying people. Cannabis can be grown in a small space anywhere. The medical benefits of cannabis keep expanding. Society will be healthier when medical marijuana is finally embraced. Unlike the snake oil sales men that give one pill for your illness and then five more for the side effects, cannabis does the job in a powerful, yet non toxic way. There is no argument left. Big pharma is just playing for time and trying to enrich their executives while they still can. There is a place for pharmaceutical companies, but not at the heart of government. Governments are supposed to look after the interests of the people, corporations only seek to maximize their profits, when government does the bidding of business it is for profit and usually to the detriment of society.
Sick people don’t benefit from cannabis prohibition. The kids (mostly black) that get locked up for possession of the plant don’t benefit. Society now has power thirsty, military police, huge numbers of non violent “criminals” and sick people being pumped full of toxic chemicals that treat one disease but create many more. So who benefits? Surely it couldn’t be that bunch of perma-tanned pharmaceutical executives that award themselves millions of dollars in performance bonuses each year? Cannabis prohibition has taken the only serious threat to the pharmaceutical industry out of the equation. As long as marijuana is illegal they will continue to bask in the trillion dollars they make each year. The corruption is so deep and pervasive that the whole world now thinks cannabis is a dangerous substance. Junk food, pills, booze and inactivity are all a part of our modern life. We have legalized the unhealthy and made illegal the healthy. They might as well ban exercise along with cannabis because it makes about as much sense. We can put rockets into space, replace a mans defective heart but we can’t accept science when it comes to pot? Someone is profiting from this monstrous situation and it isn’t the general population. The only way this situation changes is when we force it to change.
Drug dealers don’t like other drug dealers selling on their turf. For decades, big pharma was the only candy man in town worth talking about. They own the government, have slick advertisements for their drugs and have bigger profits than the illegal drug dealers. When you put legal drugs and cannabis side by side it is the legal stuff that is killing. Cannabis comes from nature. It has evolved over millions of years into the plant we have today. It is in sync with us and the environment. Big pharma drug dealers will lose huge amounts of profit when marijuana is legalized. They are and will fight legalization every step of the way. We have the numbers but they have the money. We will see which is more powerful in the coming years!
