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.
