Weeding Out A World Of Pain: A full-time carer for her mother, father, and now her husband, well-known Golden Bay activist Victoria Davis, 62, says her husband Buzz can’t function without [Medical Marijuana].
— "He was depressed and miserable when he lost his legs," she says. "Wouldn’t eat, didn’t want to do anything when he was in the hospital. As soon as he came home and started self-medicating, his attitude got better, he started eating more, he’s more positive, and he doesn’t have to suffer any of those side effects."

"There’s a big wave of support that really wants to see some intellectual dialogue take place and not this fear-mongering and misrepresented information. This is the first time I’ve ever stood up for an issue and nobody – to my face, anyway – has said it’s bad or horrible.

"I’ve had widespread support; heaps of people from what I’ve considered to be conservative, Right-wing, and elderly."

Patch Readers Overwhelmingly Support Medical Marijuana
— “This plant should be free to grow by anyone. The medical and industrial uses of this plant are amazing and the side effects are among the safest and benign in all of history for such a powerful and useful plant. No one should have the authority to tell another what they can grow and use to help their own body. These people that prohibit it are not given any right under god to deny any other human on this earth from growing a plant.” Said commenter John Porter.

President Obama “does not mind” debating the legalization of drugs (by UnivisionNews1)

“I don’t mind a debate on issues such as decriminalization,” Obama told Univisión’s Enrique Acevedo while in Colombia for the Summit of the Americas. “I personally don’t agree that that’s a solution to the problem, but I think that, given the pressures that a lot of governments are under here — under resourced, overwhelmed by violence — it’s completely understandable that they would look for new approaches and we want to cooperate with them.”

What does Cannabis cure? ASTHMA

More than 15 million Americans are affected by asthma. Smoking cannabis (the “raw drug” as the AMA called it) would be beneficial for 80% of them and add 30 years in the aggregate of extended life to current asthmatics over presently legal toxic medicines such as the Theophylline prescribed to children.

"Taking a hit of marijuana has been known to stop a full blown asthma attack." (Personal communication with Dr. Donald Tashkin, December 12, 1989 and December 1, 1997.) The use of cannabis for asthmatics goes back thousands of years in literature. American doctors of the last century wrote glowing reports in medical papers that asthma sufferers of the world would "bless" Indian hemp (cannabis) all their lives.

Today, of the 16 million American asthma sufferers, only Californians, with a doctor’s recommendation, can legally grow and use cannabis medicines, even though it is generally the most effective treatment for asthma.

(Tashkin, Dr. Donald, UCLA Pulmonary Studies (for smoked marijuana), 1969-97; Ibid., asthma studies, 1969-76; Cohen, Sidney & Stillman, Therapeutic Potential of Marijuana, 1976; Life Insurance Actuarial rates; Life shortening effects of childhood asthma, 1983.)

Myth: Marijuana Can Cause Permanent Mental Illness.

Fact: There is no convincing scientific evidence that marijuana causes psychological damage or mental illness in either teenagers or adults. Some marijuana users experience psychological distress following marijuana ingestion, which may include feelings of panic, anxiety, and paranoia. Such experiences can be frightening, but the effects are temporary. With very large doses, marijuana can cause temporary toxic psychosis. This occurs rarely, and almost always when marijuana is eaten rather than smoked. Marijuana does not cause profound changes in people’s behavior.

Cannabis may offer the best medicinal pain relief yet

Early studies demonstrate that cannabis is hugely effective in treating neuropathic pain. The cannabinoids allow nerve cells to reverse the communication path. Cells sending trauma notifications to the main trunk would normally continue doing so until the stimuli was resolved. From a practical standpoint, it is difficult to eliminate pain the moment it is recognized, but from a human level, once the person is cognizant of the problem, there is no benefit to remaining in pain. Cannabis simply tells the alarmed cell that authorities have been notified and that the problem will be resolved shortly. It doesn’t, as is popularly believed, relieve pain by making cells “stoned” or unfocused so as to disrupt communication.

"The best gardeners of my generation are not hybridizing roses, are not working with orchids, they are working with this incredibly valuable and incredibly interesting plant cannabis. I mean think about it, it’s a weed, this things a weed. It’s a weed that’s worth in the open market is $6,000 - 7,000 per LB; pretty good for a weed.

But cannabis only fetches that price because of that one particular molecule that gets people high. It’s name is THC and it was discovered in 1964 in a lab in Jerusalem.”
