Truth in Media: Feds Say Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding The

Truth in Media:

Feds Say Cannabis Is Not Medicine While Holding
The Patent on Cannabis as Medicine



Ben Swann travels to Colorado to learn the truth about cannabis as medicine and
what 
government isn't telling you

CBD Oil… you’ve probably heard of it by now. Thanks to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta,
and his special report “Weed” millions are now aware of the cannabinoid rich oil
being used to help children in colorado with epilepsy. 
Especially this one little girl Charlotte Figi after whom the Charlotte’s Web strain
of cannabis has been named.


I WANTED TO LEARN WHAT CBD OIL AND THE PUSH BEHIND IT IS ALL ABOUT SO
I TRAVELED TO DENVER, COLORADO. HOME TO LEGALIZED MARIJUANA AND THE
 STANLEY BROTHERS, THE FAMILY BEHIND THE CHARLOTTES WEB STRAIN OF
CANNABIS OIL.
The Stanley’s were the ones to prove in Charlotte Figi’s case that CBD rich cannabis oil
can prevent seizures in children.


“We have this strain that we were going to use for cancer patients because studies have
shown that CBD helps stop the metastasizing of cancer. We went ahead and tried it and
after she (Charlotte Figi) had it a week she went a week seizure free” says Jesse Stanley.
Charlotte Figi’s life was transformed by CBD oil. Now to understand what is unique
about CBD oil, you have to understand what a cannabinoid is.

IN MARIJUANA THERE ARE MULTIPLE CANNABINOIDS INCLUDING THC, CBD, CBN,
CBA, THCA, THCB AND OVER 160 OTHER COMPOUNDS IN THE PLANT INCLUDING
TERPENES FROM THE PLANT THAT CREATE THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEDICINE.

To be clear, in order to get a high from cannabis you need a high level of one cannabinoid, THC.
Again, just one particular cannabinoid. In the Stanley’s case they began growing cannabis with
lower THC and higher CBD.
“CBD is known to be a neuro-protectant, it is also one of the few things that causes neuro-
genesis.
So its not just seizures that this helps in epileptics, it is auto-immune disorders whether that’s
cancer, crohn’s, lupus, there are so many different types of things” says Stanley.

Today, in the stunningly short time since Charlotte Figi’s story became famous, the Stanley’s
have thousands of patients on a waiting list for their CBD oil. In fact there are thousands of
families who have already traveled to Colorado for this CBD oil and thousands more on the way.

They are called cannabis refugees.
All of that has led to other states wanting to legalize CBD oil. The governor of Utah signed a
CBD bill into law legalizing possession of the oil. A bill in Alabama has passed the legislature
and is awaiting the governors signature.
Lawmakers in Kentucky, Florida, South Carolina, Wisconsin and other states have or will
consider CBD bills this year.
“We’re at 20 states right now, so you already have twenty laws on the books that the people
wanted or the people’s representatives wanted” says Mark Slaugh of iComply, a Denver
based company which is fighting to keep small growers compliant with state regulation on
marijuana.

There are eight strict guidelines that must be followed. Mark says states are jumping on board
with CBD but not with marijuana.
“I think what most politicians don’t realize when they start trying to play where the puck was
and not where the puck is going to be is that regulating just one compound greatly underserves
most of the patients who really need this medicine. So along the lines of medical efficacy it
isn’t reasonable” says Slaugh.

The reality that Mark addresses is how media and politicians are jumping on the CBD train
because it doesn’t get you high, but they are ignoring some very important medical facts about
cannabinoids.


I talked with Shona Bonda about this very issue.
“I was diagnosed with crohn’s disease. In my first year I had my first bowl resection and i went
downhill after that. My immune system recognized that there was something wrong and it
essentially attacked itself.” “You’re in pain constantly and you can’t think straight.
It’s hard to go through your day to day life when all you can do is think about pain.
It is a terrible disease” says Bonda.

SHONA’S CONDITION WAS SO BAD THAT HER TEETH LITERALLY BECAME SOFT
AND THE ROOF OF HER MOUTH HAD TURNED BLACK. SHE COULDN’T STAND AND
SAYS SHE PARENTED HER CHILDREN FROM THE COUCH. DESCRIBED A LIKE
HAVING A STOMACH FLU EVERY DAY FOR YEARS, DESPITE ALL THE MEDICATIONS
AND DOCTORS, SHONA WAS ROTTING FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

Her break came when she saw the YouTube documentary “Run From The Cure” by
Rick Simpson which explained how to extract CBD and THC oil from marijuana.
Shona had started smoking marijuana just to be able to function but she wasn’t getting better.
Shona’s husband at the time wanted to get her a vaporizer… but that vaporizer became the
road to so much more.
“He went and got me a very old fashioned vaporizer from the 1970’s.
I was reading a book and I pinched off the tube for way too long and oil started forming on the
dome. So he went and got a rubber spatula and I started scraping off the oil three times a day
and I started putting whatever
I could get into a gel cap. Within three days I didn’t need my cane anymore to walk and I started
healing quite rapidly. So rapidly that I started to write in a journal” says Bonda.

That journal would become the book, “Live Free or Die”, Shona’s mantra for her own life and
the lives of the people she continues to educate across the country on the benefits of cannabis
oil.

But politicians and media are making CBD oil into the good kind of cannabis while arguing that
THC is the bad kind of cannabis. While that is not how any of this works, that is the case that is
subtly being made.

As that happens, two forces will likely come into play. One, in order to push the market away from
small sellers and harvesters of CBD oil, states and the feds will likely create a regulatory climate
that is so difficult to manage, they will, through cronyism force CBD oil into the hands of a few,
which in turn limits supply and forces the price to rise considerably.

Two, big pharmaceutical companies will being putting out a “safe”, “legitimate” form of CBD oil.
That is already starting to happen.
“GWB pharmaceuticals out of Great Britain has been producing Evaz which is a 50/50 blend of
CBD and THC. They have no real research behind whether or not 50/50 is even the right ratio
and they certainly don’t include the other terpenes and other chemical compounds from the
cannabis plant. So we could see the bone tossed to the pharmaceutical dog, its certainly a
possibility but i think that if more people would take a stand for de-scheduling marijuana, regulating
it in a manner similar to alcohol is really the best model to move forward with” says Mark Slaugh.


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, IS WHERE THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ACTUALLY STANDS
ON THIS ISSUE. CANNABIS, MARIJUANA, IS TODAY STILL A SCHEDULE 1 DRUG.
THAT MEANS, ACCORDING TO OUR GOVERNMENT IT HAS NO MEDICINAL USE
AND HAS A HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE. DOES OUR GOVERNMENT REALLY BELIEVE
THAT? NO. IN 1999, THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES FILED
FOR A PATENT FOR THE USE OF CANNABINOIDS FOR MEDICINAL PURPOSES.

Also in 1999, HHS filed for a second patent, specifically for cannabis oil for the treatment of
disease. That’s right, our government through the taxpayer funded Department of Health and
Human Services holds two patents on cannabinoids and cannabis oil to treat certain diseases
like Alzheimer’s and auto-immune diseases like crohn’s.


Truth means that Humanity is Greater than Politics.

MEANWHILE, OUR GOVERNMENT THROUGH TAXPAYER FUNDED AGENCIES LIKE THE
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE PURSUE, ARREST AND IN PRISON AMERICANS WHO WOULD
ATTEMPT TO ACCESS OR USE CANNABIS OIL TO HEAL THEIR OWN BODIES.
BECAUSE IN PUBLIC THEYCLAIM CANNABIS OIL IS NOT MEDICINE AND IN PRIVATE THEY
SEEK TO OWN THE RIGHTS TO THAT MEDICINE.

US Federal Government Confirms:
Marijuana Kills Certain Cancer Cells And Could Cure Brain
Tumors

April 12th, 2015 | by 







It is easy to say that marijuana is close to being legalized by the United States Federal Government.

As it stands, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). This means that marijuana is one of the most strictly regulated drugs, apparently because it is considered to have “no medicinal value” to the public.
But it has now emerged that the US federal government has admitted that marijuana may in fact serve as a useful treatment for brain tumors, one of the  most dangerous type of cancers. Brain tumors can occur at any age, and the exact cause of brain tumors is not clear to researchers. The most common symptoms of brain tumors include headaches, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, seizures, memory problems, mood and personality changes, balance and walking problems, nausea and vomiting, changes in speech, vision, or hearing.
This new stand by the Federal Government is said to be based on a major study published in November 2014 by researchers at the St. George’s University of London, that found that marijuana can be an effective drug to fight brain tumors. The National Institute on Drug Abuse has said in its new revised guidelines that “recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others. Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation”.
One of the lead researchers of the study, who made the discovery, explained that it is refreshing news that the US government is taking a new stand on marijuana.


Meanwhile, the study has triggered many well-respected personalities across the US to publicly speak their mind about marijuana. In February this year, the new US’s Surgeon General, Dr Vivek Murthy, said that he is optimistic that the US government will stick to its current position on marijuana so that more research can be carried out to fully explore the drug’s benefits, for the benefit of all people.
“We have to see what the science tells us about the efficacy of marijuana. We have some preliminary data that for certain medical conditions and symptoms, marijuana can be helpful. We have to use that data to drive policy-making,” he told CBS This Morning show in an interview.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has also adjusted its official position on marijuana and called for the government to drop its Schedule I status in order to facilitate more research on its effects.
A bill was also recently introduced in the Senate by some senators- Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D.-N.Y.) that would reclassify marijuana as a Schedule II drug, to allow exploration of its medical benefits.



This means that the hard-line stand on marijuana is gradually becoming weakened.

The government’s acknowledgement of the study augurs well for advocates for medical marijuana usage. The drug’s Schedule I classification has stifled scientific inquiry into the effects of marijuana (both good and bad) and has resulted in a catch-22: Marijuana is labeled Schedule I because it’s assumed to have no medicinal benefits, but that prevents people from figuring out if it has medical benefits, which then causes it to continue to be classified as a Schedule I drug….
Critics say that because it is labeled as Schedule I, scientists generally cannot acquire funding from anywhere to determine if it has any medicinal benefits to human beings.
Hopefully, with the advent of this revelation, and the initiative taken by some lawmakers to change the traditional stand on marijuana, companies and individuals who can afford to will be willing to sponsor new research into marijuana to determine its efficacy. The government too should make a concerted effort to also sanction in-depth research, to clear the air for the usage of the drug in a well-regulated manner for the benefit of the entire world. After all, if we can turn a “deadly poison” into a boon to the society, why should we not do it?

Shona Banda Drug Arrest: A Prime Case for Jury Nullification


If there ever was a "poster child" for the absurdity of the drug war, the case of Shona Banda must be it. Suffering from an extreme case of Crohn's disease, the relief she found was from cannabis oil. 

When her 11-year old son made the mistake of mentioning in school the medicinal benefits his mother had received from ingesting the oil, the state swooped in and took away the child and brought the mother up on charges. 

She faces more than 30 years in prison for the non-crime of treating her own medical condition. Today on the Ron Paul Liberty Report:
