A 2-Minute History of Marijuana

Approximately 7.6 million people die from cancer each year according to an article titled "ACS Report Focuses on Global Cancer Toll" which was published by the American Cancer Society. Now, as we sit helplessly by and watch public figures like Farrah Fawcett, Amy Mickelson, Steve Jobs, Lance Armstrong, Nelson Mandela, Ted Kennedy suffer from this horribly insidious disease, how long must it be before the U.S. Government owns up to the fact that they know a cure exists and releases the information to the general public?

The 1975 report of the federal government began its discussion of medical marijuana by stating "Cannabis is one of the most ancient healing drugs." The report further noted: "One should not, however, summarily dismiss the possibility of therapeutic usefulness simply because the plant is the subject of current sociopolitical controversy."

The list of medical uses of cannabis from historical references includes:

Anorexia, Asthma, Nausea, Pain, Peptic Ulcer, Alcoholism, Glaucoma, Epilepsy, Depression, Migraine, Anxiety, Inflammation, Hypertension, Insomnia, Cancer.

Interestingly, relief of many of the symptoms marijuana was used for in these illnesses are many of the same symptoms that have been proven in modern research. This should not be surprising unless we want to assume that all of the experience of thousands of years did not have some factual basis.


It is well known that a man named Rick Simpson in Canada, discovered that Hemp Oil with THC is successful in killing cancer cells and removing the symptoms of cancer. A member of the Royal Canadian Lodge, he was instrumental in making his own medicine and in curing dozens of members of his lodge and the local townspeople, many of whom were suffering from the devastating effects of various types of "incurable" cancer. Here is a short 8-minute video where Rick Simpson provides his public service by showing you how to prepare your own medicine:
