Post Drumpfter Day

I got a nice bump in visits yesterday (but isn’t that like a day late and a dollar short). Thanks for visiting.

trumphigh

One of my focuses on this blog has been medical marijuana and cannabis decriminalization. You notice that I hardly mentioned it in regards to this sElection. I don’t really know Clinton’s position, but it was not as strong as Bernie’s (and frankly, I knew she would never be POTUS). Trump says it is a state’s rights issue (which is cool by me). But face it, if I had been a one issue voter, say, like John Friend, who kept repeating that immigration is the single most pressing issue, then I would have soundly supported Bernie Sanders.

There are Drumpfters out there who don’t care about cannabis or are outright against it (like John Friend, btw). So, when their Don assigns someone like Rudy Gulliani as AG, they may find solace knowing that Rudy will fight that scurrilous weed until they die.

Forget those that suffer. Forget that people end up in prison, losing social status, work, losing any ability to succeed because of a bogus war on drugs. Lives ruined over a plant, when even the most braindead pot head would do nothing to harm a soul. They may not be productive, but does that mean they should sit in prison?

Most people now know of its medical efficacy. Many people know of its relaxing and mind opening effects. But the stalwarts who pride themselves on never even trying it seem to think they hold some moral upper ground. They have no problem with its illegality and even want more stringent laws to fight this evil weed.

Trump is surrounding himself with the likes of Rudy and Newt and Chris Christie (well known for his anti-weed stance). If ya’ll think that this administration is going to lighten up on weed, please show me some sort of proof this will happen.

There were some successes in America during this sElection:

4 of 5 states passed legalization (which I do not fully support, but anything is better than what we currently have): California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada. Arizona did not. That is 8 states plus the district of Columbia  that have legalized weed to some degree.

4 more states voted in medical cannabis: Florida, Montana, North Dakota and Arkansas

The people are turning the tide. But I hold no hope from Trump to push the legalization/decrim agenda, as long as he is appointing known anti-weed advocates.

Zen, The Pain, and Never Apologize

Yep. I have had limited postings lately. The job has been a killer of late… long hours and mega stress. Seems like I don’t have the time to read and search for the ever elusive solution to the woes I have identified.

So, today, I simply want to highlight a few posts that have stoked my interest.

First is Zen Gardner. I have read his site for many years. I generally throw out about half that he posts as too esoteric for my tastes or too David Ickeeee to be totally true. I have considered him a decent fellow, but now he tells us about his past:

Following my original wake up and getting deep into spirituality and looking for how best I could change the world, at 22 years old I joined the Children of God, later to be known as The Family. Many of my generation tried various alternative lifestyles, new religious movements and the like, most of which turned out to be cults in one form or another, as was my case. I didn’t fully escape until 1999 after many years of trying to change the group from the inside because I felt I had to give it my best shot before leaving, having invested so much of my heart and life in it and what I thought it stood for during those many years and wanting to leave with a clear conscience.

Sadly the cult descended into heavier and heavier control systems and strange doctrines and serious endemic abuse that appeared as the years progressed into the later stages. If you’ve never been in such an insular setting with heavy duty militant religious indoctrination 24/7 this may not make any sense to you.

People I talk to personally about this era of my life always ask, “Why didn’t you just leave?” A good question, but unfortunately it’s a form of mind and spirit control that convolutes your reasoning and even basic sense of ethics as the programming progresses and wraps around your mind and soul, always justified by “God’s will” and “we are the endtime spiritual revolutionaries going where others have never dared to go” in order to pioneer a new world supposedly based on the literal teachings of Jesus, updated of course by a modern prophet.

It took him 27 years to figure out it was a cult that raped children. And he was leadership within the cult. Not only leadership, but he was in charge of their “image management“.

An image manager’s job in a pedophile cult would likely involve painting a rosy picture of the cult as wholesome to the outside world.

However Zen Gardner, in a blog post titled My Missing Years, is now attempting to play the victim and blame the cult leadership – of which he was a part – for the cult’s depravities. He is attempting to downplay his personal involvement by blaming the same cult whose image it was once his job to massage.

It is unlikely that somebody who spent 27 years of their adult life in a pedophile cult, rising through the ranks to become a leader and media chief, would not have some idea of what was going on behind the scenes. That is not how cults work.

I don’t know Zen. I understand that he does not live in the USA (having moved his family to S America, I believe). Now I wonder what the motive for that exodus was.

Moving on, how many of you older folks feel the pain from arthritis or other neuropathic causes? You ruin your stomach with the over the counter stuff and your life with the prescription meds that give you heart attacks and the like. But did you know that THC can alleviate that pain, in very small doses?

Abstract:

We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study evaluating the analgesic efficacy of vaporized cannabis in subjects, the majority of whom were experiencing neuropathic pain despite traditional treatment. Thirty-nine patients with central and peripheral neuropathic pain underwent a standardized procedure for inhaling medium-dose (3.53%), low-dose (1.29%), or placebo cannabis with the primary outcome being visual analog scale pain intensity. Psychoactive side effects and neuropsychological performance were also evaluated. Mixed-effects regression models demonstrated an analgesic response to vaporized cannabis. There was no significant difference between the 2 active dose groups’ results (P>.7). The number needed to treat (NNT) to achieve 30% pain reduction was 3.2 for placebo versus low-dose, 2.9 for placebo versus medium-dose, and 25 for medium- versus low-dose. As these NNTs are comparable to those of traditional neuropathic pain medications, cannabis has analgesic efficacy with the low dose being as effective a pain reliever as the medium dose. Psychoactive effects were minimal and well tolerated, and neuropsychological effects were of limited duration and readily reversible within 1 to 2 hours. Vaporized cannabis, even at low doses, may present an effective option for patients with treatment-resistant neuropathic pain. PERSPECTIVE: The analgesia obtained from a low dose of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (1.29%) in patients, most of whom were experiencing neuropathic pain despite conventional treatments, is a clinically significant outcome. In general, the effect sizes on cognitive testing were consistent with this minimal dose. As a result, one might not anticipate a significant impact on daily functioning.

Big Meds and the Alcohol Industry (among others with a profit motive to keep cannabis illegal) don’t want you to know this. They want to synthesize the chemical constituents and give that to you. But it won’t work like the real deal works.

However, the alcohol industry does not make money by attempting to decrease drunk driving. As long as they can use the government to keep their competition illegal, however, they will. And, this email is evidence that they are trying to do just that.

Nothing highlights the hypocrisy, immorality, and sheer idiocy of the drug war quite like marijuana prohibition. Here we have a medicine that kills cancer cells, saves the lives of countless epileptic children, heals broken bones, relieves pain, treats PTSD, is not dangerous, and exhibits a variety of other incredible benefits – yet the state will kill you over it.

So why do these tyrants keep it illegal?

If you want to know who profits from ruining lives and throwing marijuana users in cages, we need only look at who bribes (also known as lobbies) the politicians to keep the war on drugs alive. Aside from the alcohol industry throwing money at tyrannical legislation, they are joined by law enforcement and big pharma.

Below is a list of the top five industries who need you locked in a cage for possessing a plant in order to ensure their job security.

  1. Police Unions: Coming in as the number one contributor to politicians for their votes to lock you in a cage for a plant are the police themselves. They risk taking massive pay cuts and losing all their expensive militarized toys without the war on drugs.
  2. Private Prison Corporations: No surprise here. The corporatist prison lobby is constantly pushing for stricter laws to keep their stream of tax dollars flowing.
  3. Alcohol and Beer Companies: These giant corporations hate competition, so why not pay millions to keep a cheaper and far safer alcohol alternative off the market? Case in point, the WSWA.
  4. Pharmaceutical Corporations: The hypocrisy of marijuana remaining a Schedule 1 drug, “No Medical Use Whatsoever,” seems criminal when considering that pharmaceutical companies reproduce a chemical version of THC and can market and sell it as such. Ever hear of Marinol? Big pharma simply uses the force of the state to legislate out their competition; that happens to be nature.
  5. Prison Guard Unions: The prison guard unions are another group, so scared of losing their jobs, that they would rather see thousands of non-violent and morally innocent people thrown into cages than look for another job.

How many of you still believe the reefer madness? How many would rather stop suffering? How many of you still believe these corrupt thieves and murderers that your best interest is their goal?

Suckers.

Never Apologize to the Liar Cult

If you are non-jew apologising to a jew then prepare yourself, because you will be the subject of outrageous and shrill demands from them for your various alleged ‘sins’.

You will always be held responsible for things you yourself have never done.

So don’t apologise to jews… ever.

From The Nation

DavidB points out that older folks are beginning to turn the tide of their brainwashing from the Reefer Madness of old. Of course, I have been preaching about this miracle drug as long as I can remember. I knew back in the day (70’s) that the propaganda was a lie unsupported by anyone I knew who partook of the “evil weed”. Murder, rape, theft, brain damage, lung cancers, depression, etc, etc, etc have all been proved to be mad claims. On a quick side note, if you are depressed, it ain’t because of the weed:

Study: Marijuana Use Does Not Cause Anxiety or Depression

The worst “side effect” I’ve ever known about it is demotivation (if using too much), but it is likely that these individuals would have a demotivation problem without it, as well. It really depends on how much one uses and a correct education of the substance could re-educate people to consume appropriately. Do I have to point out that demotivation hardly calls for jail time? I know many worthless assholes who have never partaken, but I don’t want them going to jail.

So, when I read that my peers are finally starting to understand that the “evil weed” is actually immensely beneficial (aka “good”) and are finding ways to help their ailments without the destructively harmful chemicals known as pharmaceuticals, my heart jumps for joy because I have been trying to educate these folks for decades.

The 55-and-older crowd is now the fastest-growing demographic of pot users in the country. Between 2013 and 2014, the number increased from 2.8 million to 4.3 million. In California, where medical marijuana is legal, seniors are learning how to fill their prescriptions — at a pot shop. They want to know the highs and the lows of marijuana use for the aches and pains of growing old, reports CBS News correspondent Barry Petersen.
. . .
Seniors account for only 14 percent of the nation’s population, but they use more than 30 percent of all prescription drugs including some highly-addictive painkillers. So pot is fast becoming a pill alternative. Marijuana use is up 53 percent with the 55-and-over crowd.
. . .
Harborside in Oakland is one of California’s largest medical dispensaries. Owner Steve DeAngelo wants more seniors to make the switch. “There’s [an] ironic, almost tragic phenomenon, which is that seniors, who are one of the groups who can most benefit from use of cannabis, are the single group which remains most opposed to reforming cannabis laws,” DeAngelo said.

That opposition started when seniors were just juniors, kids growing up with movies like “Reefer Madness” and government anti-drug campaigns. It’s still illegal under federal law, but now almost half of Americans live in a state where medical or recreational pot is legal.

The inevitability of the truth is here for all to see, even covered in mainstream outfits that previously demonized anything about it.

Myth-Schizophrenia

Per the Washington Post:

New research published today in the journal JAMA Psychiatry found that using marijuana as an adult is not associated with a variety of mood and anxiety disorders, including depression and bipolar disorder.

Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD)

I told you that the stuff was made for your body.

MM_CU02

As hard as that is to believe (due to all the decades of brainwashing we’ve been subjected to), there are benefits to the miracle plant which include filling the deficiencies that lead to “migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other treatment-resistant conditions“:

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Ethan B. Russo’s paper of December 1, 2003 explored the concept of a clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) underlying the pathophysiology of migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and other functional conditions alleviated by clinical cannabis.

METHODS:

Available literature was reviewed, including searches via the National Library of medicine database and other sources.

RESULTS:

A review of the literature indicates that significant progress has been made since Dr. Ethan B. Russo’s landmark paper, just ten years ago (February 2, 2004). Investigation at that time suggested that cannabinoids can block spinal, peripheral and gastrointestional mechanisms that promote pain in headache, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and muscle spasm.

CONCLUSION:

Subsequent research has confirmed that underlying endocannabinoid deficiencies indeed play a role in migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome and a growing list of other medical conditions. Clinical experience is bearing this out. Further research and especially, clinical trials will further demonstrate the usefulness of medical cannabis. As legal barriers fall and scientific bias fades this will become more apparent.

The list of ailments this miracle medicine can help (and cure) is extensive. As a matter of fact, there may be NO ailment that it cannot help in some way. Why do you think Big Meds wants it kept illegal (obviously profit motives)? Or why would they try to synthesize the constituents for profit (which has caused horrible outcomes that the real thing never has caused in history)?

endocabbinoid-ssystem

tobacco_kills_cannabis_heals_postcardsMany people I know are still so hoodwinked about it. Maybe you believe the lies (like how it might make you stupid, even as a heavy user, when I contend it does the opposite). Maybe you had a bad experience and didn’t like getting “high”. But what I am talking about isn’t the wonderful high (in my opinion), but the medical efficacy that one gets from it via ingestion. If you are hung up on smoke harming your lungs, then vaporize it and there is absolutely ZERO affect on your lungs. But one can take a rice sized drop of the oil on their tongue or added to a drink. Or, if it were truly legalized (as it should be), then one could add it to a salad for raw consumption (and no way to get high). Even the old standard lie about the joint being SEVEN TIMES MORE CARCINOGENIC AS CIGARETTES has been proved false (as I have claimed many times in my life). As a matter of fact, it PROTECTS against cancer (and is far less harmful, if at all, than cigarettes).

Even some of my closest links to the side over there are against weed and its legalization (and these are supposedly people with a liberty bend to their writing/work). I cannot grasp such a contradictory stance. Hence, my guess it is either ignorance or misunderstanding or a personal bad experience.

People do not have to be unproductive dope heads to heal themselves.

But why do I feel I need to write such an obvious sentence?

Maybe The Long-Haired Freak Could Use A Good Sativa Blend

Apparently, the fried egg in a pan meme was not good enough for the Aussies.

Seriously, now. It is to the point that only the most ignorant, unlearned people are still hood winked by such stupid caricatures, or alternately, those with a moneyed interest are still using such foolishness to protect their business.

Briefly, who profits from the drug war?

Police do and are generally big spenders when it comes to prohibition. But why? Well, cops (especially drug enforcement cops) are profiting by keeping a job. No brainer, right? But please consider the Federal grant money these criminals with badges get, not to mention their play-purties.

Did I mention Asset Forfeiture? Big Money is made by police departments by TAKING money, even when no crime has been committed (with a few criminals with badges sticking a roll of hundreds in their pockets while bosses aren’t looking could NEVER happen, could it?).

Did I mention that police and our government manufacture reasons to keep the scam going?

Yes, there are some cops that still believe the decades long rhetoric which has been blasted into their thick skulls/thin brains, but those numbers are waning and one can easily find cops (usually ex-cops) that understand that it is a huge racket. (I can appreciate that site.)

Who else profits?

Alcohol companies.

What?!? The purveyors of death and ruined lives pay to stop drugs? Apparently, they want a monopoly on killing people.

Of course, people who are in the “treatment” game need a slice of the life-destroying game. And we should never forget the drug-testing industry, who can work closely with the treatment industry.

The Big Money is the Private Prison Industry. But I would say that the Biggest Money is in the pharmaceutical world, where they sell poisons while simultaneously selling the world on the lie that cannabis is NOT a medicine that could cure/help many sufferers from the ravages that the chemical companies (masquerading as health related care-givers) inflict on a brain-washed public.

The Real Efficacy Is The Whole Plant

Big Meds want to make their Big Money from breaking down the plant into different individualized components. But the fact is that virtually anyone and everyone who has used this plant will tell you the plant works better than the “medicine” produced. Here is Dennis Hill’s graphic and explanation:

doi:10.1016/j.tips.2009.07.006

Which is better for healing, whole plant medicine or a single element pharmaceutical? Why is it that patients given the choice prefer the whole plant? There are many reasons for this, but they generally boil down to one thing, all the various cannabinoids, enzymes, terpenes, phenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and other elements in cannabis work together synergistically to provide a robust healing effect. One researcher calls this the Entourage Effect. Here, entourage refers to the aggregate of all the synergistic elements in the cannabis plant. Below is a chart showing six different cannabinoids and their effects on the human body. So we see how many different benefits arise from this entourage of cannabinoids. The variety of cannabis terpenes, flavonoids, and enzymes are also beneficial.
There is no doubt that pharmaceutical houses will want in on the cannabis bonanza. If they follow their tradition we will see single element drugs giving us synthetic THC or CBD, but my hope is they will see the wisdom in whole plant medicine.

~Dennis Hill

Why Weed? ‘Cause God Made You That Way

Whether you believe in Intelligent Design or Evolutionary design (whether God put them there or we evolved them), the fact is that your body has more cannabinoid receptors than any other receptor known to man. What possible purpose could this have? What are the chances that we have these receptors, but aren’t supposed to use them?

Atheists may have a hard time with this, because they don’t believe there is an intelligent design. Religionists may have a problem with it because they find it impossible to reconcile the propaganda of decades that told them how evil cannabis is, yet they have a body designed to receive this medicine.

No, the fact is that our bodies were designed to be this way.

If there is not a medical reason for our body to receive these cannabinoids, why are they there?

BBC special on Cannabinoid Receptors…below an article by Steve Kubby, Sierra Times …A new study published in Nature Reviews-Cancer provides an historic and detailed explanation about how THC and natural cannabinoids counteract cancer, but preserve normal cells. It is hard to believe that the knowledge that cannabis can be used to fight cancer has been suppressed for almost thirty years , yet it seems likely that it will continue to be suppressed. Why? According to Cowan, the answer is because it is a threat to cannabis prohibition . “If this article and its predecessors from 2000 and 1974 were the only evidence of the suppression of medical cannabis, then one might perhaps be able to rationalize it in some herniated way. However, there really is massive proof that the suppression of medical cannabis represents the greatest failure of the institutions of a free society, medicine, journalism, science, and our fundamental values,” Cowan notes. Millions of people have died horrible deaths and in many cases, families exhausted their savings on dangerous, toxic and expensive drugs. Now we are just beginning to realize that while marijuana has never killed anyone, marijuana prohibition has killed millions.

And now the government agencies are forced to admit its efficacy regarding cancer (this is major)

US National Cancer Institute Now Lists Cannabis as Potential Cancer Treatment

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) is the United State’s primary agency in which cancer research and training is conducted. They are part of a larger umbrella of governmental agencies that comprise the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NCI is largely responsible for the running the National Cancer Program, providing cancer-related information to the public, as well as developing programs and recommendations for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer.

Now listed on the the NCI’s Cannabis and Cannabinoids page, which is assumed to be the United State’s official position regarding Marijuana’s potential application in treating cancer, are the following facts:

  • Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.
  • A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.
  • A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
  • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.

The page also discusses several other potential medical applications for Cannabis and Cannabinoids such as pain relief, appetite stimulation, as well as it being an effective treatment for nausea, anxiety, and depression.

The page concludes by stating the FDA has not approved Cannabis or any Cannabinoids for the treatment of cancer, but that two Cannabinoids (dronabinal and nabilone) are currently approved for the treatment of chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting.

The NCI’s page on Cannabinoids and Cannabis as a treatment for cancer gives the impression that the currently schedule I substance, Marijuana, holds tremendous potential for medical applications.

“Cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells”

 

The time draws near that America will embrace this miracle cure.
