Marijuana: The Forbidden Cure for Cancer?


What if Marijuana was the cure for cancer? What if the Government knew marijuana was the cure for cancer since 1974? Why was the Federal Government shutting down the medical use of Marijuana in States where voters have approved it.  Why was the Federal Government forbidding research on  the medical use of marijuana? Why does the Federal Government say that marijuana has no medical value yet it obtained all patent rights on medical use of marijuana in 2003? Could it be the Federal Government is doing all these things to protect the profits of the pharmaceutical companies? Are millions of people suffering and dying every year because of the Governments dirty little secret?

The U.S. Government has known since 1974 that Cannabis could Cure Cancer

In 1974 researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana damages the immune system, found instead that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice — lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia. The DEA quickly shut down the Virginia study and all further cannabis/tumor research, according to Jack Herer, in his book, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes“. Then in 1976 President Gerald Ford put an end to all public cannabis research for many years.

October 7, 2003, Government Obtains Patent Rights on Medical Marijuana

 In 2003 the Federal Government obtained patent number 6630507. The patent claims that “Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.” The patent, awarded in 2003, is based on research done by the National Institute of Health, and is assigned to the US Department of Health and Human Services. The federal government, through the operation of government-owned research facilities, research grants to Universities and procurement contracts with private industry, funds almost 50% of the national R&D effort. Because of this enormous funding, the federal government has the most United States patent rights.

The F.D.A. on April 20th, 2006 Dismissed Medical Benefit From Marijuana

 The FDA stating “no sound scientific studies” supported the medical use of marijuana, contradicting a 1999 review by a panel of highly regarded scientists.

7-25-2010  Medical Marijuana In Veterans Affairs Clinics OK’d In States Where It’s Legal

Patients treated at Veterans Affairs hospitals and clinics will be able to use medical marijuana in the states where it’s legal, according to new federal guidelines.

The directive from the Veterans Affairs Department is intended to clarify current policy that says veterans can be denied pain medication if they use illegal drugs. Veterans groups have complained for years that this could bar veterans from VA benefits if they were caught using medical marijuana.

In March, 2011, The National Cancer Institute  proclaimed marijuana to have medical uses.

Why is this significant?  The new NCI assessment could have an impact on the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug, the harshest possible drug classification. The principal criteria for a Schedule I determination is that there is “no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.” The U.S. Justice Department will have a hard time maintaining that claim if challenged, considering a federal agency now recognizes marijuana’s medical use in cancer treatment.

July 9th, 2011, The D.E.A. Rules That Marijuana Has No Medical Use.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) ruled July 9th, 2011 that marijuana has “no accepted medical use” and should therefore remain illegal under federal law, regardless of the conflicting State legislation legalizing Medical Marijuana for patients who are prescribed marijuana by a Doctor, and despite hundreds of studies and centuries of medical practice attesting to the drug’s benefits.

The DEA has been arresting Medical Marijuana Patients and providers for years in States that have legalized marijuana for Medical use. Though it seems wrong or even evil to arrest a sick person for using a medicine prescribed by a Doctor and then throwing them into prison where the medicine is denied, the Supreme Court has ruled that they have that right, and they continue the attack against medical marijuana.

The Times are about to change.

The writing is on the wall for Medical Marijuana. Federal Government agencies such as the DEA and the FDA claim that cannabis has no medical value and yet other federal agencies say it does have medical use. With the Veterans Affairs approval of medical marijuana, the Federal patent on medical marijuana and The National Cancer Institute now recognizing Marijuana as a Cancer Treatment, it is only a court case away until marijuana is rescheduled from a class 1 drug.

More and more evidence of marijuana curing cancer is a guarantee that the DEA will soon find themselves out of a job on medical marijuana.  Furthermore Marijuana is currently being used as a natural cure for Cancer and many other ailments. That will not change no matter what the DEA or any other Government agency thinks about it.

As of  2016 there are 25 States that have Medical Marijuana Legalized. This is expected to go National with in the next decade. Over 70% of American citizens are in favor of Medical Marijuana. The internet provides instant access to information and studies from countries world wide on the medical use of marijuana. The obstruction and lies about medical marijuana is becoming more and more Politically Incorrect.
