Cannabis cancer

Scientific research carried out by the American government in 1975 showed the powerful cancer fighting ability of THC and other compounds within the plant. They have known since then that cannabis combats tumor growth and in some cases kills the cancerous cells altogether. There is a reason we instinctively don’t trust our governments, and this is the reason. Big pharmaceutical companies, who know they couldn’t get the complete patent for cannabis, bought and paid for the silence of politicians. We know that politicians have first and foremost, their own interests at heart, so if big business will give them election money and then a million dollar salary when they are voted out(usually over some scandal, like voting against the people’s wishes or interests) whose side do you think they are on?

Prescription meds for that are horrible and I want off them.

        Fingers crossed you get the requisite support. 😉
