Ooooops! Who spilled the beans?
--by Bonnie Colleen McCool
Animal and human mother's
milk are packed full of cannabinoids.
Breast milk is the
largest natural source of cannabinoids in the world except
for the cannabis plant. The true facts are cannabis plants and our bodies
have inborn occurring endocannabinoids
or signaling molecules that activate cannabinoid receptors within our brains.
are essential to nurturing new life. Some scientists speculate that cannabinoids
play a protective role in the brain, slowing the rate of disease.
The truth is out and spreading like wildfire!
cures cancer! This truth
will not be suppressed, until every household knows the clamor, the swelling
protest, exposing dark,
dirty secrets of heinous crimes against humanity!
Does anyone you know or love
have cancer? Eleven thousand people recently raced for a cure in El Paso,
but we actually seem to be running FROM the cure!! It is down right sinister,
crime against humanity, for the
medicinal uses of cannabis to be suppressed.
THC is the
active ingredient in cannabis. Watch the herb
in action in the Seth Group's petri dish. An internet search for "THC
cancer" brings up thousands of research papers from all over the world.
Ooooops! Who spilled the beans? SCIENTISTS
and PATIENTS all over the world, that's who!
In a cannabis study on cancer
conducted in 1974, researchers at the Medical College of Virginia, who had
been funded by the National Institute of Health to find evidence that marijuana
damages the immune system, instead found that THC slowed the growth of three
kinds of cancer in mice - lung and breast cancer, and a virus-induced leukemia.
The Drug Enforcement Agency shut down that study and buried that life saving
information. In 2000, it was validated again when researchers in Madrid announced
they had destroyed incurable brain tumors in rats by injecting them with THC,
the active ingredient in cannabis.
This is an
atrocious scandal, too ghastly to be ignore, more explosive than sex in
the oval office! Yet where are the headlines? Where is the outrage in major
news media? Are they like Mexican journalists, afraid to tell truth to power?
Fear losing their jobs not their lives, so far at least.
pharmacy lobbyist have
paid for road blocks to cannabis research. For all these decades, the
medical profession has been treating cancer patients to killer cocktails of
antiangiogenesis drugs that cut off the blood supply to tumors while also
killing healthy cells! Ifosfamide destroys the patients bladder and kidneys.
And as a last hope treatment, thaledomide, the sleeping pill that produced
clubfeet and webbed fingers will also starve tumors. These poison drip cocktails
come with side effects you can count on to make life no longer worth living.
Radiation is another poisonous, "cure" and surgery often triggers
the cancer to spread. We all know someone who has suffered these hellish treatments.
One day these, "cures," will be looked on as a step back to the
dark ages in medicine.
Texas straight talker, Paul
says we are "politicizing
pain." The debate over medical marijuana or cannabis is really a
controversy over whether this very safe, effective, easy-to-grow herb should
be allowed to compete
with expensive dangerous pharmaceuticals
the sick and dying is an un-American activity.
testify to Cannabis'
help in treating post traumatic stress,
chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, gastrointestinal (GI) tract disorders,
Cancer, epilepsy, glaucoma, hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS and more! They swear
it is an effective safer
replacement for very dangerous pharmaceuticals.
Profiteering has no place
in medicine, which must be concerned with the well being of the individual
not the bottom line. Doctors who have monitored cannabis use by hundreds of
thousands of patients in California and Oregon can document a consistent pattern
of using less pharmaceuticals including cutting opiates use byhalf. Repealing
prohibition of marijuana would bring other much needed healthcare reform.
Cannabis medicines were once
drugs of choice in the United States. Until they were declared
illegal, they had been used in about 30 prescription medicines for a 100 specific
Texas polled at 75% overall
for medical marijuana. At the center or heart of this great state that number
jumped to 83%!

"Tater" Nixon's chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, wrote in his
diary back in 1969, that "[Nixon] emphasized that you have to face the
fact that the whole problem [welfare] is really the blacks. The key is to
devise a system that recognizes this while not appearing to ..." Nixon's
motive was further corroborated in 1995 by Nixon's other aide, John Ehrlichman,
during an interview with Dan Baum, author of Smoke
and Mirrors, when he told Baum, "Look, we understood we couldn't
make it illegal to be young or poor or black in the United States, but we
could criminalize their common pleasure. We understood that drugs were not
the health problem we were making them out to be, but it was such a perfect
issue for the Nixon White House that we couldn't resist it."
Marijuana prohibition began and remains about
racism, power and control. One in 106 whites are incarcerated. One in 36 Hispanics
and one in 15 blacks are incarcerated! Prohibition is a policy still used
by racists to fulfill their agenda. It is a great shame on US; we
incarcerate more of our people than any other nation in the world!
Harassing the sick and dying
is un-American and unchristian activity! We have spent close to a trillion
dollars waging war on a disease, a sickness! We lock up sick people. Use is
considered abuse so nonviolent social users are incorrectly locked up as addicts.
Rarely is the true addict treated as a patient instead of a criminal.
Medicine has become just another
big business with profits more important than the well being of the individual.
Our under treatment of pain is medieval or just plain evil! Dr. David E. Joranson
of the University of Wisconsin Medical school thinks, "The use of pain
medications has become a crime story when it should be a health care story."
Most Americans and Texans agree and believe health care is the responsibility
of the individual. The use of marijuana has been demonized and made a crime,
when in truth, it is a health care story about a safer choice!
It is a fallacy to believe
the evils of the drug war are unintended. Felony convictions disenfranchise
mostly poor and minority Americans. Tricky Dick Nixon was really good at hiding
tyranny under the guise of good intentions, a con used by the servants
of tyranny, throughout history.
His DEA could be called the
Drug Encouragement Administration. Use of drugs in the last 35 years has increased.
Drugs are more potent and available. This Agency (according to the governments
own numbers) has had a greater than thirty-fold increase in budget and has
4 times the agents.
This unscientific and senseless
policy triggers violence in our streets and on our borders. Corruption is
rampant, official lawlessness rules as it did during alcohol prohibition.
The DEA and other drug warriors
seem blithely unconscious of the societal harm their policies cause. If you
research it you will find that there were few overdose deaths before prohibition.
Public safety should come
first. At least 230
US citizens have been murdered in Mexico in the last 5 years. Former presidents
of Brazil, Columbia and Mexico have called for a change in focus to reducing
harm and tackling organized crime.
Across America paramilitary
drug raids trigger violence rather than lesson the risk. The outrageous
violence and official lawlessness triggered by the drug war will end with
repeal just as these policy created problems disappeared with repeal of alcohol
ask YOUR state and federal representatives to support a blue ribbon commission
reviewing the effectiveness of drug prohibition. Our corrupt system attracts
those interested in milking it for all it is worth. Restore justice and attract
more of those who will make the system run with the milk of human kindness.
Some of our leaders live in
a state of denial. Others are like bad horseman; too concerned about staying
in the saddle to worry about where they are headed. Many are outright servants
of tyranny; good at ignoring the rule of law, history and science while catering
to the needs of special interests but very bad at determining what is best
or safer for the individual or society.
Gain better control by regulating
all drugs like we do pharmaceuticals, tobacco or alcohol. We tolerate the
salesmen of these drug gangs that cause more death annually than all illicit
We can never agree on everything
but surely we can agree that responsible behavior; weighing the choices and
making a safer, wiser decision is to be encouraged in America not criminalized.
Cannabis is the safest health choice in social drugs and as medicine it does
not have the negative side effects of many prescription drugs. A policy that
disregards science and punishes families of citizens for making a safer
health choice in a social or medicinal drug is bordering on insanity or
The war on drugs devastates
the lives of drug users and their families. Taking children from the homes
of parents who made a safer health choice is senseless policy. Taking property
from these same, destroyed by government families, is
U.S. police arrested
an estimated 873,000 persons for marijuana violations in 2007, according to
the latest FBI annual Uniform
Crime Report. That total, the highest ever recorded for marijuana violations,
made up 42.1 percent of all drug arrests.
across the US 36.4% of the murders, 59.6% of the rapes and 45.1% of the
aggravated assaults became cold case files! The cumulative effect of this
is horrendous. While we police nonviolent folks' social, religious and medicinal
use of drugs; murderers and violent sexual predators roam free.
Warriors can earn their pay
and get their adrenaline rush catching murderers, sexual predators and other
perpetrators of violence. Many of whom we know are out there, somewhere. Then
our peace keepers will truly be making our neighborhoods safer.
The Netherlands drug policy
of peace; no drug war cost and no ruined lives, is worth considering. They
tax cannabis just like any other commodity and medicinal use is legal. They
incarcerate one per thousand of their citizens compared to seven out of every
thousand of US citizens behind bars; making the "Land of the Free"
have the largest prison system in the world. A recent survey showed 19% of
Dutch teens have tried cannabis and less than 3% have ever used any illegal
drug. Their public schools are exemplary while ours sometimes seem more like
prisons than institutions of learning and free thought.
Switzerland and Netherlands
do a much better job with their violent crime. Their drug laws help lessen
the harm to society by triggering less assaults and homicides. Their teen
drug use is down. Could it be because they live in a safer, saner world? Maybe,
but California's teen use of marijuana is down so maybe it has more to do
with drug sales being handled by legitimate business people less likely to
sell to a child or to recruit a minor to sell to their peers.
Texas increased its spending
on cell blocks by 346% between 1986 and 2000. During that same period spending
for higher education increased 47%.
The,"World Prison Population
List" (seventh edition), by Roy Walmsley is out with the latest available
information. The US holds top ranking at 738 per 100,000 people. Our closest
competitors Russia with 611. Texas has an imprisonment rate pushing 1,000
out of every 100,000. "There's no country on the planet - no dictatorship
on earth - as comfortable with locking people up as the state of Texas."
-- Tami Halphen, A
Blue Activist in a Red State
"After millions of people
arrested and incarcerated, it is clear that the "war on drugs" has
reshaped the way America responds to crime and ushered in an era of instability
and mistrust in countless communities." According to a report from the
Sentencing project, a half million poor souls are presently incarcerated
for drug offenses. Drug abusers deserve medical help. Instead we lock them
and nonviolent users in prison, a breeding ground for crime.
According to a new report
released today by the
Pew Center on the States, at the start of 2008, 2,319,258 adults
were held in American prisons or jails, or one in every 99.1 men and women.
Texas beat out California as the nations prison leader.
"A close examination
of the most recent U.S. Department of Justice data (2006) found that while
one in 30 men between the ages of 20 and 34 is behind bars, the figure is
one in nine for black males in that age group. Men are still roughly 13 times
more likely to be incarcerated, but the female population is expanding at
a far brisker pace. For black women in their mid- to late-30s, the incarceration
rate also has hit the one-in-100 mark. In addition, one in every 53 adults
in their 20s is behind bars; the rate for those over 55 is one in 837."
Our DEA overseers have harassed
the sick and dying, shamed and destroyed families, locked up and killed many
(including enforcement) over one of the safest therapeutically active plants
known to man; while FDA"overseers"allowed more pharmaceutical killers
on the market. Both agencies exacerbate problems instead of solving them.
They should be disbanded.
When we fight against drugs,
we fight for the souls of our fellow Americans," said President Bush.
Like flagellant priests, overzealous drug warriors draw blood daily from their
brothers for their medicinal and social drug use. President Obama, please,
don't let them carry this nation one step further down this depraved path!
Fellow Americans, we are out
of control! We, the people, have no say in the running of this country. We
have turned over the reins to a few cold-hearted, power-mad, morally bankrupt
evil doers with little or no ethics, who in a careless bloodletting, feeding
frenzy worship nothing more than the almighty dollar.
War is a tool governments
use to make us more accepting of their waste of our precious lives and resources.
War creates a booming economy for some on the suffering of many. The Iraq,
Afghanistan war and drug war are smokescreens for corruption but something
smells rotten! Politics and money, there's a way to separate them, DownSizeDC!
The military and law enforcement
have recruitment problems because current policy attracts those interested
in working in a corrupt system and milking it, thereby creating a pervasive
disrespect for the law. Our system could run with the milk of human kindness,
if America had the ethical, efficient and constitutionally limited government
our founders envisioned.
Changing whose in charge

Freedom tells it like it is! The beauty of it is when we focus on downsizing

The World Trade Organization
and the United Nations are more big government, money hungry beasts that we
must tame or cut down to size. Both are meant to be helpful organizations
devoted to fairness and cooperation between nations and to preserving life
as we know it. In reality, as with most big government programs it doesn't
work that way! They often make things worse for the very people they're intended
to help, making us pay with our precious lives and resources.
the World" is the official name of our Statue of Liberty. Boy did we
miss the boat somewhere! With more people in prison here than anywhere else
on earth, is this the way to be the land of the free? With modern unbiased,
science based statistical reporting, we can see where our laws are causing
more harm than good and change accordingly. We can't take that necessary evil,
money out of the equation but we can demand compassionate policy and ethics
from our leaders when peace lovers, liberty lovers, true patriots unite!
Leaders responsible for current
quagmire will one day answer to a higher power for their crimes against humanity.
It's time to end the terror by changing our intrusive, big-bully policies,
both foreign and domestic. The monetary costs are staggering and the human

One of my 2011 Rebel with Just Cause portraits
will be shared by Bradley Manning and Julian Assange: for posting the Afghanistan
war diaries on wikileaks. It is not a crime to expose war crimes. Marc Emery
is our hero and wins the other 2011 portrait for taking a stand for justice
against a morally bankrupt, violence triggering, nightmare policy.
One 2012 Rebel is journalist and poet Javier
Sicilia, whose son was killed in drug prohibition-related violence inspiring
him to galvanize Mexican society and awaken international debate. In the summer
of 2011, tens of thousands marched across Mexico to protest the drug war and
the 50,000 drug prohibition related deaths in the previous five years.
Americans are not the only rebels with just
cause but it is our patriotic duty to rebel against big government corruption
Kevin Zeese is the other 2012 Rebel for his
tireless efforts for peace. He is the Executive Director and cofounder of

Since 2006 I have awarded two free portraits
yearly, each dedicated to the freedom philosophy or the American dream. I
call it the, "Rebel with Just Cause Award." It is given to true
American patriots; those who stand for freedom against tyranny and injustice.
The real visionaries, who laid down America's laws, those who defined what
an American patriot would be, were rebels with just cause. It's not just our
right it's an American's patriotic duty to rebel against big government corruption.
I apologize, due to health and family
