More LIVING PROOF The “NEW Miracle Drug”, Cannabis, Helps Heal The Sick

We’ll have a better idea about Gupta’s impetus after we see  “Weed 2: Cannabis Madness: Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports” at 10 p.m. ET Tuesday

Is he now truth-telling about Cannabis for the sake of truth, and health, and to uphold the physician’s motto “do no harm” – or is he shilling, ever so slyly, for Big Pharma, so that when the uninformed masses hear his reports in the background over dinner, the underlying message will be ‘we’re not sure about the safety of the plant, even slight amounts of THC could hurt children (!), but trust the doctors to give you a pill form that is safe and approved by authorities with very white teeth.

Because let’s be honest, children are being healed of the devastating effects of Dravet Syndrome (“severe epilepsy”) not through a pharmaceutical version of cannabis, nor after more time-consuming research on the various components of the plant, but by simple farming that can be done practically for free by anyone. If a doctor is true to his/her motto, s/he would not suggest that it is preferable for Big Pharma to meddle in this medicine that works, as is, better than anything the medical industrial complex has come up with by far.

If Cannabis cannot kill, yet pharmaceuticals are the fourth leading cause of death in the US, I would expect someone whose motto is “do no harm” to have a bias for whole plant medicine. It goes without saying that in our current economic climate, with no affordable health care available, any medicine that is affordable, safe and effective (especially to this degree – practically, if not totally, miraculous) should be espoused by one who claims to be interested in healing, and who might want to be seen as a compassionate human being.

  1. Marinol: Less effective than the real thing. Made to make the user feel bad.

    It takes over one hour for Marinol to reach full systemic effect,[99] compared to seconds or minutes for smoked or vaporized cannabis.[100] Some patients accustomed to inhaling just enough cannabis smoke to manage symptoms have complained of too-intense intoxication from Marinol’s predetermined dosages. Many patients have said that Marinol produces a more acute psychedelic effect than cannabis, and it has been speculated that this disparity can be explained by the moderating effect of the many non-THC cannabinoids present in cannabis. For that reason, alternative THC-containing medications based on botanical extracts of the cannabis plant such as nabiximols are being developed. Mark Kleiman, director of the Drug Policy Analysis Program at UCLA’s School of Public Affairs said of Marinol, “It wasn’t any fun and made the user feel bad, so it could be approved without any fear that it would penetrate the recreational market, and then used as a club with which to beat back the advocates of whole cannabis as a medicine.”[101] United States federal law currently registers dronabinol as a Schedule III controlled substance, but all other cannabinoids remain Schedule I, except synthetics like nabilone.[102]


  2. “While cannabis is not known to cause death, Marinol was cited by the FDA as being responsible for 5 deaths (4 direct and 1 indirectly involved) between January 1, 1997 and June 30, 2005.[96]”
