Alternative Cancer Treatments: Medical Marijuana

My father was recently diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, and medical marijuana is one of the tools we are using in an attempt to decrease the cancer and recuperate his health. At this point it is just a matter of weaning him off of the pharmaceutical drugs and getting back to natural treatments (without the negative side effects of prescription drugs) as soon as possible. Medical marijuana is an important tool in making this process successful.

Check out Rick Simpson’s work at for more information about hemp/marijuana oil (also known as “Phoenix Tears”) and its ability to cure cancer.

“I am here to expose you to information about the most medicinal plant known to man — hemp. Medicinal miracles are a common occurrence when using oil derived from this specific medicinal plant.” – Rick Simpson

Alternative Cancer Treatments: Rife Machine Explained

My father was recently diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer, and the Rife machine is one of the tools we are using in an attempt to decrease the cancer and recuperate his health. This device and process explained by my good friend and physicist Ken Rauen:

The Rife machine, opposed by the American Medical Association (AMA) and nearly completely outlawed by the U.S. government since the 1930s, can be an effective tool to treat cancer. The Rife machine’s history is fascinating and carries many parallels to hemp’s prosecution in the same decade (viciously opposed by the AMA and corporate interests, outlawed by U.S. Congress, and nearly wiped off the face of the planet even eighty years after the fact).

Royal Rife - Rife Machine

“Royal Rife was a man who could well have been at least 80 years ahead of his time. Not only did he invent one of the most powerful microscopes ever seen, he used to identify foreign matter, which he called a virus at the heart of every cancer. He then went on to work out the energetic frequency of each of the different viruses he found and build a zapper which could adjust frequency and kill off the virus leaving healthy cells untouched. He was ridiculed, attacked and his work stopped. He died a pauper. Only now are scientists once again thinking there might be a virus at the heart of every cancer, as Big Pharma contemplates the profits involved in developing a myriad of vaccines.” ~ Chris Woollams (The Work Of Dr Royal Rife)

Adam Kokesh and Joe Rogan: What Anwar Al-awlaki Really Said

Adam Kokesh and Joe Rogan discuss what Anwar Al-awlaki was really saying (at least at one point) and what it means in terms of the government’s ability to label and attack people without presenting any evidence. Heartfelt appreciation to Adam for helping bring this issue into the spotlight.

Why We Can’t Ignore the Assassinations of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki and Anwar Al-awlaki

The assassinations of Abdulrahman Al-awlaki and Anwar Al-awlaki, two U.S. citizens killed by U.S. drone strikes in Yemen, carry extremely dangerous implications for individual liberty, due process, and severe abuse of government power. We cannot let these incidents slip through the cracks.

Anwar Al-awlaki: What the media and government don’t want you to see

Footage of Anwar Al-awlaki in October 2001 discussing the deaths of innocent civilians in the U.S. and Middle East.

Awlaki, a U.S. citizen born in New Mexico, was assassinated by a U.S. drone strike in Yemen on September 30, 2011. Al-awlaki was on the CIA’s hit list, signed off by the Obama Administration, for 17 months prior to his assassination. No evidence was ever presented against him in court, his citizenship was never revoked, and he was given no opportunity to exercise his constitutionally-guaranteed rights to due process and a fair trial.

If no evidence is presented against Al-awlaki in court, even nearly a year after his assassination, does this suggest the government indeed has no solid evidence against him justifying his assassination?

Read more about Anwar Al-awlaki’s case here.

Anwar Al-awlaki

“Our position needs to be reiterated, and needs to be very clear. The fact that the U.S. has administered the death and homicide of over 1 million civilians in Iraq; the fact that the U.S. is supporting the deaths and killing of thousands of Palestinians, does not justify the killing of 1 U.S. civilian in New York City or Washington D.C. And the deaths of 6,000 civilians in New York and Washington D.C. does not justify the death of 1 civilian in Afghanistan.” ~ Anwar Al-awlaki; October 2001

Adam Kokesh: Dismantling Intellectual Property Myths

Adam Kokesh beautifully discerns and dismantles the numerous flaws surrounding intellectual property, as interpreted and enforced by the government, and the very negative role intellectual property has in limiting market competition and societal advancement. As Adam explains, intellectual property indeed does not help the “little guy,” it actually puts precisely the “little guy” at a severe disadvantage to corporate giants and those with the lawyers and resources to use arbitrary government intellectual property and patent laws (backed by government force, as with all laws) as a dangerous tool to reduce and/or prevent competition (and innovation).

In this interview Stephan Kinsella, an intellectual property lawyer, expands on Adam’s arguments and explains intellectual property’s unknown and harmful history going back several centuries:

DEA: Alcohol Prohibition Worked

From the International Association of Chiefs of Police and DEA’s 2010 report:

DEA - Alcohol Prohibition

And from the 2011 paper I wrote on prohibition:

As we have explored, marijuana is proven to be a less dangerous substance than tobacco and alcohol. Not only is it less dangerous in terms of its addictive properties and physical harm to people, it has critical cannabinoid chemicals that may relieve pain and aid the recovery of certain illnesses. Given these scientific findings, it is clear that public policy is not weighing the individual and societal costs and benefits of marijuana, alcohol, and tobacco. Alcohol and tobacco have a host of health dangers that are generally well accounted for in today’s society, but marijuana is stilled shunned by the government and many in society despite scientific evidence proving contrary to the conventional opinions held of marijuana.

Of course, prohibition of alcohol was official constitutional policy, as demanded by the Eighteenth Amendment, in the United States between 1919 and 1933. The Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution declared it illegal to produce, transport, or distribute any intoxicating liquors in the United States. The Amendment was the result of many years of pushing from the nation-wide temperance movement for alcohol prohibition, not entirely unlike the anti-marijuana campaign that would seriously gain traction with Anslinger’s work in the early 1930s. However, the passage of national prohibition did not necessarily go as planned or hoped by those in the temperance movement. Yes, liquor prices shot up (the price of beer increased approximately 700% during the Prohibition era), but high prices due to Prohibition gave rise to stronger alcohol products offered to the public through the unregulated black market. The black market cartels (which came about exclusively because of the criminalization of alcohol) produced less diluted and more intoxicating liquor products, simply because it was more efficient for them to concentrate alcohol into stronger products (Thorton).

Per-capita consumption of alcohol had already been declining in the U.S. since 1910. After alcohol consumption in the U.S. hit an all-time low during the depression of 1921, it actually began to increase starting in 1922. This is curious, considering that after the Prohibition policy was enacted alcohol consumption reversed its downward slope and began to increase.  Especially alarming is economist Mark Thorton’s research finding that the “homicide rate increased from 6 per 100,000 population in the pre-Prohibition period to nearly 10 per 100,000 in 1933” (Thorton). Once Prohibition was repealed in 1933 with the Twenty-first Amendment, “the rate continued to decline throughout the 1930s and early 1940s” (Thorton). Homicides spiked in 1920 after Prohibition became official national policy, and homicide rates continued to increase until Prohibition was repealed in 1933.

Harry Anslinger, Bureau of Narcotics, and the Assault on Cannabis

harry anslinger.jpg (581×760)

Harry Anslinger

Harry Anslinger, the first appointed Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics starting in 1931, led an ardent anti-marijuana campaign in the U.S. during the 1930s. In his July 1937 article, “Marijuana, Assassin of Youth,” Anslinger laid out numerous case claims of people who had smoked “the weed” and simultaneously lost control of their actions and killed innocent people. Because marijuana (scientifically known as Cannabis sativa) grew in essentially every state in the U.S., Anslinger reasoned that its common growth in nature explained why “gangsters perhaps have found it difficult to dominate the source.” The Bureau of Narcotics, formulated under the U.S. Treasury Department, was the vehicle through which marijuana was characterized as a drug that turned people into violent beings with little or no control over their actions.

“No one knows, when he places a marijuana cigarette to his lips, whether he will become a philosopher, a joyous reveler in a musical heaven, a mad insensate, a calm philosopher, or a murderer.” ~ Harry Anslinger

Anslinger’s concerns and anti-marijuana efforts were indeed passionate, but his claims lacked scientific backing from the medical community. Some in the medical field at the time actually believed marijuana might have beneficial health uses. Melvin Urofsky, a current Professor of History at the Virginia Commonwealth University, explains that the American Medical Association did not show up to one of Anslinger’s key congressional hearings on marijuana to support his claims. In fact, Aslinger purposefully misled medical organizations as to when to show up to congressional hearings, thus preventing their testimony on marijuana. The AMA’s lack of appearance didn’t faze Anslinger, as he “lied to the committee and told them that the AMA favored strict regulation of marijuana.”

Racism was also a common factor in Anslinger’s attack on marijuana. Marijuana was typically associated with Mexicans and blacks; groups who were generally lower class and looked upon in a negative light.  Among several known racist remarks, he said, “Colored students at the University of Minnesota partying with female students (white) smoking [marijuana] and getting their sympathy with stories of racial persecution. Result pregnancy.” The 1937 Act passed by Congress and signed into law by President Roosevelt listed marijuana as a narcotic, conveniently adding to Anslinger’s Bureau of Narcotic’s jurisdiction of illegal drugs to regulate and enforce. This possible play for power, racist concern of marijuana’s effects, and the neglect to consult legitimate medical organizations during congressional hearings puts a serious dent in the work and intention of Harry Anslinger in his campaign against marijuana. Despite this, it is largely because of Anslinger’s efforts that marijuana was criminalized and cast into such a negative light in the U.S.

Resist the Police State

The police state is upon us. Drones now fly over our skies, U.S. citizens can be indefinitely detained without a trial, and police forces are increasingly militarized for duty. Wake up, education yourself and your friends and neighbors, because without an informed populace things will only get uglier. Times are rapidly changing, be ready. Stay informed, anticipate new directions, and prepare for the unexpected.

“The American Republic is in remnant status. The stage is set for our country eventually devolving into a military dictatorship, and few seem to care. These precedent-setting changes in the law are extremely dangerous and will change American jurisprudence forever if not revised.” ~ Ron Paul
