Cannabis protester prepared to starve

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, February, 19th 2011 by THCFinder

A TIMARU cancer patient facing a jail term for growing cannabis he uses to alleviate pain says he will go on a hunger strike if he gets locked up.

Peter Davy, 51, has pleaded guilty to cultivating cannabis and to other related drug charges, but says he uses the drug only for medicinal purposes for himself and his partner, who suffers from multiple sclerosis.

It is not the first time he has been before the courts on drug charges and the judge indicated that when Davy is sentenced on March 16 he can expect to receive a jail term.

But Davy is refusing to go quietly.

"I will be going on a hunger strike the moment I am given a prison sentence and I absolutely do not want to be force-fed under any circumstances. I will also be refusing all cancer medication.

"I am 100% committed to continuing with a hunger strike until I am dead," said Davy. "I hate confrontation and I hate publicity, but I have nothing to lose and somebody has to make a stand... or nothing ever changes."

Davy, who has done extensive research into the medicinal benefits of cannabis, says he started smoking cannabis only after he was diagnosed with a pituitary tumour 10 years ago and discovered it helped alleviate the symptoms better than any drugs the doctors could prescribe him.

"Not one legal drug had the slightest beneficial effect. They turned me into a zombie, slowed my brain to a standstill and made it feel like mush, made me suicidal," he said. In desperation he tried cannabis, and it helped.

He did not support the use of cannabis as a recreational drug and accepted its potentially dangerous side, but he believed that for people like himself and his partner, who were in constant pain because of terminal illnesses, cannabis use should be permitted.

Cannabis can cure cancer. There is scientific proof. But the medical industry doesn't want you to know.

Category: Culture | Posted on Wed, February, 16th 2011 by THCFinder

Listen very closely because this post is important. Recently I have come across different documentaries all speaking of the intense medical potential with hemp oil. It can cure cancer. But also other illnesses. And to anyone who doesn't want to get high, you don't have to. The oil doesn't do that.

To put it simply: Certain compounds in cannabis including THC attack only cancer cells while protecting healthier cells.

Endocannabiniods that exist in Cannabis exist naturally in the human body. They are part of your nervous and immune systems. Whether or not you smoke pot you have these chemicals already present in your body. Some have them more then others, some have them less. They act as tumor regulators, mood regulators, anti-depressant, anti-inflammatories and so on.

Hemp oil works naturally with the body and regulates internal systems.

This is the case of Rick Simpson. Rick Simpson had a serious head injury in 1997. He sought relief from his medical condition by using medicinal hemp oil. Rick then discovered that hemp oil cures cancer as well as other illnesses. He tried to share it as many people as he could. (He now claims to have helped around 2500 people.)
But when his story went public the authorities snatched the medicine - Leaving potentionally thousands of people without their treatmant - and leaving Rick with charges of possessing and traficking marijuana.

Watch the documentary about him entitled Run From The Truth: The Rick Simpson story. In it, among other things, we are told of people who were not allowed to testify on Rick's behalf during his trial. Including a man who was CURED of terminal cancer by Rick.

The documentary can be found on YouTube.

However you can also download the documentary for free on this website. I find that to be easier.

Pay a visit to Rick Simpsons website. It is full of information and there are instructions on how to make your own medicinal hemp oil if you suffer from illness.

Working for the human rights of cannabis consumers

Category: Culture | Posted on Thu, January, 6th 2011 by THCFinder

 

Trees Nonprofit: "Working for the human rights of cannabis consumers".

Our Trees non-profit has just begun to sprout.

We are in that exciting state of affairs that includes the filling of positions to learning the strengths of our group. As the holidays come to an end the "core" group of Ents will be tuning in on quite a few of the steps of incorporating as a nonprofit in the great state of California.

One of our priority goals was choosing our organization's name. We eventually decided to go with CRISPIN (Cannabis Recreation Is Safe Prohibition Is Not) for collateqal use. The official name will be Cannabis Culture Consortium.

We feel that name and branding are one of the most critical choices of any start up. We need a unique Brand that defines our non-profits goals without alienating our group from the established reform groups, MPP, NORMAL, LEAP, and SAFER and etc.

We have a great group with a multitude of talents, with computer skills, poets, songwriters, business owners, lots of students and a few members with blogs. People of all ages and from all walks of life will be adding their diversity to make us a unique niche force in the pro-cannabis movement.

One of our goals is maximizing communication with goals of establishing both Internet and physical communication techniques. From songs and rhymes to the power of the Internet, we will spread the word "The time to end prohibition is now".

Another of our core goals is education, one focus will be showing recreation with cannabis is safe. In todays society we have our law enforcement imprisoning and even killing people over various cannabis related crimes, this is an enormous violation of cannabis consumers basic human rights. The herb cannabis has a history, 6,000 years of use by humans for both medicinal purposes and as a sacramental herb that was used by several religious sects. The seed was a very important food source in old China, and is also known to have health benefits. There is a lot of information that we feel every voter in the world should possess if we expect to make a change. 

At "Trees non-profit" our New Years Resolution is:
"Working for the human rights, of cannabis consumers"

Happy New Years!

Roommates arrested for growing, selling marijuana

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, January, 3rd 2011 by THCFinder

Police have arrested three roommates for allegedly growing and selling marijuana out of their Iowa City residence.

 

According to criminal complaints, Iowa City Police Street Crimes officers served a narcotics search warrant at 2151 Keokuk St., No. 14 on Sept. 30. Police identified the occupants as 20-year-old Christopher J. Reasoner, 21-year-old Simon R. Olesen and 18-year-old Taryn M. Stroud.

 

Police said they obtained the search warrant after purchasing marijuana from Reasoner on Sept. 21 using a cooperating individual. Stroud participated in the sale and also bragged about their marijuana grow operation, police said. The transaction was monitored by Street Crimes detectives.

When officers served the warrant they allegedly found plants being grown and cultivated plants, police said. Police said they also found items used in the manufacturing and selling of marijuana, including grow lights, packaging materials, a digital scale and cash.

At the time the warrant was served, there were other people in the residence using drugs, police said. The roommates admitted to growing and selling marijuana, according to police.

All three roommates were charged with controlled substance violation, Iowa drug tax stamp violation and keeping a drug house. Reasoner and Stroud face an additional count of controlled substance violation and gathering for use of drugs.

Do College Girls Smoke Marijuana?

Category: Culture | Posted on Tue, December, 28th 2010 by THCFinder

Marijuana is everywhere these days: the news, on TV, in ardent political discussions about medicinal pot. Then, of course, there is the popular stereotype about college students and pot - you know, that all college kids do is smoke.

But what about college girls? Do they use marijuana as much as their male peers? In an article for Her Campus, Amanda First investigates about the relationship between female college students and the most popular illicit drug.

Marijuana. Weed. Grass. Bud. Mary-Jane. Cannabis. Whatever you call it, you've probably seen it, smelled it, or smoked it at some point. Marijuana is, after all, far and away the most commonly used illicit drug in the world, with about 4 percent of all adults consuming it regularly and 0.6 percent on a daily basis. Humans have used the drug as far back as the third millennium B.C. for recreational, spiritual, and medicinal purposes, and in recent years a very public debate on weed's legality has caused many to question how harmful it really is.

And just as marijuana has pervaded our national culture, so too is its skunky smoke as much a part of the air in our college campuses as the smell of Easy Mac. At my school, weed is so common that the university barely gives you a slap on the wrist for being caught smoking--a violation results in a brief alcohol education class and a mark on your record, while in high school it meant immediate expulsion. But even though it's all around us, weed is still illegal--and still dangerous in many ways.

But how bad is it, really? HC talks to college girls, both users and non-users and Deb Lewis, Cornell's alcohol and drug expert, to get the low-down on getting high.
