Why is Marijuana Illegal?

How this list came about-

“If the truth won’t do, then something is wrong!”

Those were the furious words of my grandfather to my Mother. I had walked in from joyfully stuffing my face with red raspberries in the garden, straight into “war zone”! My gentle grandfather in a fury, his hand raised! Mom was just beginning to shrink back away from him. They saw me and quickly sent me away. But it was too late, the scene and the words were seared into my 5-year-old brain. That was over 55 years ago, but I still remember it clearly. My grandfather was a minister, one very short step away from God in my 5 year old mind. It was one of those life changing moments. It is still rare for me to tell a lie. I never found out what my Mother’s lie was.

As I child, I suffered a traumatic head injury. Another child tried to murder me with a hammer. I was left with frequent migraines. At 19, like many rebellious teens, I tried cannabis. It took about a year for me to make the connection between using cannabis and the absence of my normally frequent migraines. I have used cannabis ever since.

I am an avid reader. While perusing an old book on herbal medicine, I read how the little old ladies of Mexico made and used a cannabis/tequila rub on their arthritic hands. Then I met Joey, an epileptic musician. He told me another interesting fact- when he had pot he could cut his medication in half! On a camping trip years later, I smelled an unmistakable odor. Following my nose, I was totally shocked to find a grandmotherly lady in her 70s puffing away on a delicate oriental pipe. “Parkinson’s. And the pot’s way cheaper than the pills!” Her nephew kept her well supplied, she said. We had a nice chat about various medical uses of cannabis.

Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, arthritis, and my migraines! What else was it good for? Yet every news article on cannabis that I saw, claimed one new horror after another. Men grew breasts and were impotent. Women became sterile or miscarried. It made you crazy and murderous. Made you lazy and do nothing. It caused cancer and heart attacks…What I had learned on my own and from others and what I was being told in the press were so different!

What was the truth? I began researching. I printed the first studies up and kept them in a notebook, just as a personal reference. The notebook quickly filled. I started a Word file of the URLs and on July 30 2007, I posted it. It continues to grow.

Here’s some of what I have found. All I’ve done is copy the URLs, then put them all in some semblance order for everyone to use as a reference. Please feel free to share this list with anyone who could benefit from it.

Local High School Student Dies From MRSA

PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) ― A Philadelphia public high school student died earlier this week of a confirmed case of MRSA, the school district announced.

Saalen Jones, a senior at Martin Luther King High, passed away Tuesday at Albert Einstein Medical Center.

Jones, 17, was a cornerback for the Martin Luther King football team. It was not immediately known how Jones was exposed to the bacteria………..
cbs3.com – Local High School Student Dies From MRSA

Saalen Jones is just “collateral damage” in the War on Drugs. Being an athlete in school, he likely didn’t use drugs. Yet it is the War on drugs that killed him.

If we had been researching cannabis for even a year or so, we would by now have had potent cannabis salves to fight MRSA. We have a plant that can produce chemicals that apparently stop MRSA in it’s tracks, and our government won’t let us have it! How WRONG can you get?

Rest in peace, Saalen.
