“Over the course of the next several months, Randy’s condition improved so dramatically that his doctors expressed feelings ranging from wild excitement to stunned disbelief. “Keep doing whatever you’re doing,” they would counsel.
However, when Randy and Molly would inform them of the methods they had adopted in treating Randy’s condition, the doctors did not seem interested in hearing it.
“In Pennsylvania, the doctors won’t acknowledge it,” Molly explains. “They skim over it every time.” -from Does Cannabis Treat Cancer?
I’m writing about marijuana again because yesterday a friend of the Brown Piglet gave him a tie dyed marijuana t-shirtand I liked it – it reminded me of the 60s..….a time so very, very different from this one. Back then I didn’t feel any of the fear or unease I feel nearly all the time now. I don’t remember ever wondering if humans would be able to survive on this Earth….I just remember the smell of incense which I always associate with peace and I remember a feeling of belonging, of Woodstock and the psychedelic clubs and the music..especially the MUSIC…it was a GOOD time.
At the same time, the Brown Piglet got his t-shirt, he had just planted his first plants in our greenhouse.He has his medical cannabis card and license to grow a limited number of plants for himself as he has been diagnosed with PTSD.
And then also I had gotten an email from Green Flower Media about a man who was cured of Stage 4 cancer using cannabis. * there are many cases of healing using cannabis..again, easy to research Watch and Read: Does Cannabis Cure Cancer
So I thought about these things: About how just in the last couple weeks, I have been behind 4 drunk drivers or seemingly drunk, weaving all over the road. And I thought about how alcohol is so wholly promoted and advertised, no matter the huge number of deaths caused by drunk drivers and the violent behavior so often connected to alcohol.
I thought how the government is heavily invested in bringing in the dangerous drugs like heroin, cocaine [this is very easy to research and I have already written about this in MAPLE SYRUP FOR THE BRAIN ]
while, at the same time, arresting and jailing people for marijuana is a BIG, LUCRATIVE BUSINESS here in the US. [again,so easy to research]
“America’s four-decade war on drugs is responsible for many casualties, but the criminalization of marijuana has been perhaps the most destructive part of that war. The toll can be measured in dollars — billions of which are thrown away each year in the aggressive enforcement of pointless laws. It can be measured in years — whether wasted behind bars or stolen from a child who grows up fatherless. And it can be measured in lives — those damaged if not destroyed by the shockingly harsh consequences that can follow even the most minor offenses….”
-Jesse Wegman The Injustice of Marijuana Arrests/The New York Times
But I decided rather than write anymore I would post some music, some songs about marijuana for the lighter touch which we all need in this world….speaking for myself, I’m so tired of ‘the news’, the violence, the hatred, the insanity and except for maybe one, the politicians. So here’s some music for humor, happiness, a light in the darkness..all that music brings:
PS I don’t smoke marijuana…I just can’t stand injustice, the lies and the propaganda
