News Flash: Medical Marijuana Is Good

|| By FITSNEWS || While South Carolina’s law enforcement community continues to wage a senseless war on medical marijuana, there is growing acceptance that the drug provides tangible health benefits to patients.

Hell, even the U.S. Surgeon General admits as much …

“We have some preliminary data showing that for certain medical conditions and symptoms, medical marijuana can be helpful,” newly installed Surgeon General Vivek Murthy told CBS this week, adding “you have to use that data to drive policy-making.”

Indeed … which is why S.C. Senator Tom Davis and State Rep. Jenny Horne are pushing legislation that would greatly expand the state’s medical marijuana statutes (legislation we have enthusiastically embraced).

Twenty-three states have legalized marijuana for medical purposes.  Four states – Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington – have legalized pot for recreational purposes, although an effort has been made to tax it to death.

Also, it’s nice to hear an appointee of U.S. president Barack Obama make such a comment in light of his administration’s dangerously hypocritical prior positions on medical marijuana.  Obama has since declared that marijuana decriminalization – for medical or recreational purposes – is an issue that should be left up to the states.

We have consistently maintained that American adults should have the right to produce, distribute, sell or consume any drug they wish … operating on the belief that individual liberty and the free market should trump government’s desire to moralize and over-regulate.

Furthermore, we believe commercial activity associated with decriminalized drugs should be regulated and taxed in a manner consistent with the way alcohol is regulated and taxed.  Perhaps even less stringently.  Pot certainly shouldn’t be assigned an “extra” tax simply because elected officials at the local, state and federal level are failing miserably in their efforts to prioritize core functions of government.

The “War on Drugs” has been a costly, demonstrable failure … it’s time to reverse that failed policy and pursue the decriminalization of marijuana and other drugs for medical, recreational and commercial purposes.

Marijuana is more than just good — its a “Gift from God”

Here’s a comment I posted earlier. Hopefully the moderator will allow me to re-post it.

Marijuana is a “Wonder Drug” for Cancer patients, for Kids who suffer from Seizures, and for so many diseases of so many kinds.

Its a fast and highly effective pain reliever, and its incredibly safe. Its the only painkiller that users can safely self-tirate over a wide range and is the only painkiller that is physically impossible to overdose on.

Its a rapid acting and incredibly safe and effective anti-depressant — it doesn’t takes weeks to start working like SSRIs, and rather than increasing the chances of its users committing suicide, a real problem when young people are given SSRIs, it reduces suicide rates.

When used recreationally, its far safer than Alcohol, and infinitely safer than Cigarettes. Its helped countless people detox from Alcohol and hard drugs and not relapse on them.

Marijuana, and its cousin, Hemp, feed the hungry (Hemp for food and Hemp animal feed), heal the sick (Medical Marijuana), clothe the naked (Hemp Fabric), and house the homeless (HempCrete building materials).

Marijuana oil may have been the “miracle” healing oil used in biblical times and talked about in the bible.

Its easy and cheap to grow and can be easily processed into food, medicine, clothing, paper, and housing supplies, at very low cost, with very little equipment, and that’s incredibly important in the third world.

For Cancer patients, and for the entire world, its truly a “Gift from God”

FastEddy23 February 7, 2015 at 12:09 pm

Of course. However “normal” kids also smoke it, which too often is a net negative for their lives and life style … as is booze.

To “sell” pot as a medical solution is one thing. If chemotherapeutic were pleasant and occasionally inspiring, it could be the drug of choice instead.

Too much of any good thing is almost always destructive.

BrigidBernadette February 7, 2015 at 4:09 pm

It is precisely an ‘asshole conservative’ who works for medical legalization in this state. Tom Davis–Republican-is the one who got the tincture available for use and study and drug development in South Carolina. Get your facts straight.

unclewillie1 February 7, 2015 at 9:37 pm

I like Tom Davis. My post referred to asshole conservatives like Sheldon Adelson who, for purely political reasons, pumped $5 Million into the group formed to defeat a Florida Constitutional Amendment to regulate Medical Cannabis.

Jeff deutsch February 7, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Here’s a comment I posted long ago. I hope the moderator will allow me to re-post it.

I’m a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research. The evidence of the value of Marijuana as a life saving medicine is now so strong that the need to remove Marijuana from Schedule 1 has become a moral imperative.

This weekend over 3,000 Americans will die, in pain, of Cancer. Every day after that, 1,500 more Americans will die, after suffering horribly, from it. Every single minute another American dies of Cancer. Every American Cancer patient deserves the right to have safe, legal, and economical access to Medical Marijuana. Every single one.

Americans who need Medical Marijuana shouldn’t be used as “Political Footballs” Please call the Whitehouse comment line at (202) 456-1111 and ask that the President take immediate action to remove Marijuana from Schedule 1 so American Physicians in all 50 states can prescribe it. Go to petitions.whitehouse.gov — there are two petitions you can sign electronically there, one to take Marijuana off of Schedule 1, the other to legalize it completely.

Oncologists have know it for more than a quarter of a Century that Marijuana is a “wonder drug” for helping Cancer patients.

The American Society of Clinical Oncologists wants Marijuana removed from Schedule 1. So does the American Medical Association, the professional society of all Physicians. A strong majority of Americans want Physicians in all 50 states to be able to prescribe Medical Marijuana. So do their Physicians., Cancer patients can’t wait.

The need to immediately, completely, legalize Marijuana throughout the world is one of the most pressing moral issues of our time, because of its medical benefits and because of the damage prohibition causes to America and to the world.

Complete legalization is critical — its vital that there aren’t “strings” or “hoops” that Cancer patients and others who need Medical Marijuana are forced to jump through.

“Charlottes web” is NOT the solution. Cancer patients and people who suffer from chronic pain need THC, not just CBD. The “Berkeley study”, where 96% of stage 4 Cancer patients who had a wide variety of Cancers achieved remission, used high dose Medical Marijuana oil, 72% THC, 28% CBD, 1 gram/day (oral) over a 90 day course of treatment. It was a small study, and not placebo controlled, but those kinds of results are clearly remarkable, have been widely reported on in the press, and demand the need for immediate large scale clinical trials.

More and more present and former members of law enforcement agree about the need to end prohibition, and have formed a rapidly expanding group of current and former undercover cops, FBI, DEA, prosecutors and Judges, from all over the world, called

LEAP — Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

because they’ve seen the damage prohibition causes to America and the world.

See http://www.leap.cc/

I’m a Scientist. Not a politician, not a cop.

But as a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research, I feel even more strongly about the need to ensure that no Cancer patient is denied it, because I’m so impressed with its benefits for Cancer patients.

I urge everyone reading this to PLEASE call and email the Attorney General, the press, Congress and the President today.

Medical Marijuana helps with Alzheimer’s, Autism, Cancer, seizures, PTSD and chronic pain, and has helped many Americans, including many veterans, stop using Alcohol, and hard drugs, both legal and illegal ones.

Every minute an American dies of Cancer.

Every 19 minutes an American dies of a prescription drug overdose.

Many vets become addicted to prescription opiates and die from them.

NOBODY has ever died from smoking too much pot.

Cancer patients are seeing remarkable results using high dose Medical Marijuana oil, in many cases achieving complete remission, even for stage 4 cancers — there are many excellent articles on the web, and videos on youtube with patient’s personal stories about their experiences with it — and every Cancer patient that uses Marijuana to ease their suffering benefits greatly from doing so.

It is immoral to leave Marijuana illegal, for anyone, for even a second longer.

For Cancer patients, its a matter of life and death.

Cancer patients can’t wait.

Medical Marijuana has an unmatched safety profile, and for people who suffer from so many diseases, of so many kinds, its a medical miracle — and the scientific evidence behind it is rock solid.

For Cancer patients, Medical Marijuana encourages apoptosis and autophagy of Cancer cells, while leaving normal cells untouched, is anti-angigogenic, anti-proliferative, and is anti-angiogenic.

Its also synergistic with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, making both more effective.

For many Cancer patients its meant the difference between life and death.

For everyone else, its a far safer alternative to Alcohol, and infinitely safer than Cigarettes.

Either take them off the market too, or legalize Marijuana right now.

2016 is too far away, Its too long to wait. Every year we lose more Americans to Cancer than died in WWII.

Between now and the 2016 elections, roughly 1 MILLION Americans will die of Cancer.

And Its a horrible way to die.

BrigidBernadette February 7, 2015 at 2:47 pm

Thank you for posting this. I signed on to pain management from cancer, and had to give it up, otherwise they will withhold medical treatment for pain –the two or three puffs a day so i can eat. I have lost 30 pounds since then. And not in a good way–it is from going entire days without eating at all. Electrolytes all messed up, anemic, etc. Sucks.

BrigidBernadette February 7, 2015 at 2:55 pm

But I don’t take FITS position of across the board legalization of the heavy stuff, we simply need common sense drug policy, with categories based on science not political grandstanding. I lived in NYC during the late 80s crack epidemic, if you can call it that. I saw things that most people will never see in their worst nightmare, just walking down the street. And when they inevitably show up in emergency rooms, with gaping abscesses all their body, mouths burned, gruesome things growing out of them–we all pay. And the city paid dearly, entire areas destroyed from it. It came in little plastic vials, you would walk down into the subway and they would crunch under your feet. And then step over a half-dead person laying on the filthy ground. Until you see it, you wouldn’t believe it. So T-Rav doing some lines in his upper class milieu is not representative of what cocaine does to people. The reality is demonic.

GrandTango February 7, 2015 at 3:28 pm

BB, I think the lower-brow, puff-early-and-often, abuser types (like FITS) really hurt your right to use whatever pain management options there are…

When the most irresponsible are put forth to argue the case, no one has any trust in them…Especially with current the state of the nation right now…thanks to the types I’m speaking of…

A respected and rational member of society, like yourself should be THE ONLY voice speaking to this need for marijuana as a medicine.

The dopers and the liars need to butt out…so that they don’t hurt the credibility of the NEED of those who are legitimate.

BrigidBernadette February 7, 2015 at 4:04 pm

After years of Legalize It activism from NORML, it ended up being a Republican who pushed through to get the tincture available in South Carolina for that suffering girl with epilepsy. I hope they can get approval for Epidiolex as soon as possible. The whole Colorado thing really clouded things, but I guess someone had to go first with wider legalization. Hippies do themselves no favors with this issue. If the professionals, responsible adults, and contributing citizens who use it to ease anxiety and garden variety aches and pains instead of alcohol, xanax, SSRI anti-depressants, porn, gambling, whatever people use to combat the extreme stress of the past few years would step up, that would also help give a better public face to the reform movement. But when FITS and others advocate we have a free-for-all drug policy, it really doesn’t help. It is not all or nothing. And it is counter-productive to suggest so. The expensive incarceration of people who get busted for having a few plants in their yard has got to end. Interesting that harsh criminalization for cultivation turns someone from a person with a green thumb and a peaceful hobby into a dangerous criminal, while illegal alien criminals walk free, and people who kill their own kids get less time than a ‘trafficker.’

Liz Gunn, Mande Wilkes, and who was that other one–the one who decided to tell us the groundbreaking news that rape is bad–aren’t cutting it for you? She used the SPLC as a source, if that tells you anything about her awareness level. They drove me away from this site for a while. They are an embarrassment to women, and I think he publishes them to feed his misogyny. That new website about fashion and politics, more silliness. Dorothy Rabinowitz at the WSJ, Heather MacDonald at City Journal/Manhattan Institute, Phyllis Chesler, Sheryl Attkisson, the ever provocative pro-men critic Camille Paglia, and of course, the godmother of female public intellectuals Phyllis Schlafly, are the women I aspire to be like. The academe is incapable of producing dignified self-respecting heavy hitters like Mary McCarthy anymore. The Algonquin Roundtable has been replaced by salon reviews and mommy-blogs. If a woman is parroting and squawking about ‘the intersection of race, class, and gender,’ run for the hills. If she is wearing tampon earrings whilst babbling about the fake phoney fraudulent ‘war on women,’ conveniently ignoring the real war on women throughout the muslim world because it’s too hard for their toxic estrogen-poisoned brains to handle, then you know that woman (Melissa Harris-Perry) will have a great career ahead of her, sadly. The dumbing-down of dumbness continues apace, and men are not spared either. Witness the imbecile Thomas Friedman. He gives beta-males a bad name.

GrandTango February 7, 2015 at 6:07 pm

Very intuitive, mature and knowledge-based.

Also: I gather you don’t consider governess-wannabe Cindi Ross Scoppe an “Occupier” in the elitist class of great minds?

I think FITS used to have a crush on the Cruella-like prose prophet for the leftwing gentility. FITS, smittenly and affectionately, referred to Ross-Scoppe as Pippi Longstockings I think. Very typical of that intellect level.

You’d be suprised by how many very successful people smoke a joint daily. I think it best the government get the f#*k out of our lives and worry about sh#t that really matters like this countries climbing 18 trillion dollar debt! Damn, we tried this with prohibition and it did nothing but breed organized crime. When liquor was made legal, the US did not turn into a country filled with raging alcoholics as predicted. It will also not be “addicted” to pot. 4 states have legalized it. Let’s put it on a referendum for recreational use and let the people decide. I know this would never happen in SC. We will be the last state in the union to legalize it.

The war on drugs has been going on since 1971 at a cost of 800 billion. NEWS FLASH. It’s not working!

We could free up so many law enforcement man hours to concentrate on other things, not to mention the extra prison and jail space.

Let’s tax it and earmark for roads

GrandTango February 8, 2015 at 5:57 am

Why is it that you have a gaggle of degenerates always promising how benign vice will be…if you just relax the laws against it…and let everyone do as they please…????

Your problem is: every time we give in to your excuses and promises of “How-good-it’s-gone-be” it turns out you are liars, and stupid in the ways if public policy.

We need to demand more responsibility…not immature and dangerous behavior from people who cannot handle it. Put down the joint, and CONTRIBUTE. Quit begging to be even more irresponsible. You’ve damage our society enough, already.

I had a good friend die several years ago from colon cancer. He told me the marijuana was better than the pergosets. Something about it being easier on his system which by that time was a shambles any way. He made me see marijuana in a new light. That and the ruined lives the “war on drugs” has caused is enough to change about anyone. I say we decriminalize it like yesterday.

They will withhold pain meds if I test positive. Pain management that is, you are correct that when pain was only under the control of my oncologist, it never came up. But if I had told him, you better believe they would have looked at ANY pain complaints as ‘drug seeking.’

Bible Thumper February 7, 2015 at 8:57 pm

BrigidBernadette, I wish you the best and hope you can get any treatment that might help. I believe that marijuana eases pain, nausea and improves appetite. It may treat or ease other symptoms.

There is, however, little evidence that it cures anything. I don’t who Jeff deutsch is. He has a discussion account. I have found the same comments post all over the country. When I tied to google searched for the “Berkeley” study of marijuana, I didn’t find anything but his comments. That is not surprising since Berkeley is not technically the name of any college or university. They are hoping you will assume they are referring to University of California, Berkeley. I haven’t confronted him, but I think he is a fake.

Jeff deutsch February 8, 2015 at 10:30 am

Please post your experiences on every article you can find on the web, call the whitehouse comment line and tell them and email the president. The more people know the truth, the sooner every Cancer patient in the US will be able to have safe, legal, access to the benefits of Medical Marijuana.

We shouldn’t deny medical treatment to people because some use that substance recreationally. Recreational users will get cannabis regardless. For the last few decades even over 80% of high school seniors have reported that cannabis is “easy to get”.

In all honesty, if some medical cannabis ends up being used by recreational users, this is not a bad thing. It is better they buy product that has been professionally produced with quality controls from licensed establishments rather than support a crime-ridden underground market that would not hesitate to sell hard drugs.

a simple study of the marihuana tax act of 1937 shows the complete fraudulence of marijuana prohibition, its use to protect corporate interests- especially the petrochemical industries- and exposes all the ridiculous propaganda that zombie-brained sheep have been regurgitating for decades. then, all you need to do after that is watch every pharmaceutical drug commercial where they openly admit that all the side effects caused are worse than any of the symptoms that all these crappy pharmadrugs cant even alleviate. but then they knew tobacco caused cancer all along and lied about that for decades. oh and alcohol only cause all manner of diseases, violent activity, addiction, and is the no.1 cause of vehicular deaths. i’m all for outlawing marijuana if they outlaw tobacco, alcohol, and all these obscene pharmaceuticals that corrupt bought-off doctors pimp the way a pedophile offers candy to children. there’ a reason they keep marijuana illegal, but pimp all this other garbage that causes all kinds of problems and i know what it is and why.

Greedy, selfish and callous Liberals will perpetuate outlandish lies to pervert reasonable laws for their uses. They don’t care who they hurt, as long as they serve themselves.

Every Cancer patient that’s benefited from Medical Marijuana should post that fact as widely as they can, and should call the whitehouse comment line and write an email to the President telling him about it. The more he knows the truth, the faster he’ll act to change the law to allow Physicians to prescribe Medical Marijuana the same they do every other Medication.

Your posts are full of lies. (see his other posts in this thread) Show me a link to a legitimate website reporting where a Berkeley study had 96% remission for stage 4 cancer patients. Where is your evidence that the ASCO voted in support is removing marijuana from Schedule 1. These are the only claims I’ve tried to track and find no evidence for.

Well, I did find this: http://reason.com/blog/2015/01/26/pediatrician-group-says-marijuana-should
In the first sentence is a link to the pdf of the AAP policy statement. As far as the suggestions that cannabis kills cancer cells, believe me, people come out of the woodwork suggesting the craziest things, otherwise known as scientific ‘woo,’ and it is surprising the number of people that believe peach pits, injecting hydrogen peroxide into the blood, and a litany of other remedies for cancer exist, they are just being held back by Big Pharma so they can continue to make money from chemo, goes the argument. Most of that stuff goes back to Jeff Rense and the early days of the internet, and is carried on by snake-oil creeps like Dr. Oz. However, having said that, it does not rule out that a natural substance may unlock an unknown polymerase that attacks cancer cells. Until recently, research couldn’t even be conducted because it would mean producing, obtaining, and utilizing MJ, which was the issue with MUSC and the seizure research. BUT again, throwing that into the mix when addressing the use of medical MJ for neuropathic pain or nausea is again further clouding the issue, and runs the risk of discrediting the whole argument. It would be more effective to leave out conjecture and focus exclusively on the humane relief and mercy for suffering patients, period. Other valid points he makes get lost and rejected by the inclusion of what sounds like woo, but may not be in the long run. As with any effective political movement, it has to be precise and sound for it to gain traction and ultimately prevail.

As much as I wish that cures would be found for purely altruistic reasons, profit is the driving force. Clinical studies are expensive. Currently there is no way for a company to profit from studying a natural product that can’t be patented. It’s also difficult to profit from a new use of a drug when the patent has already expired.

If we could find a way in which companies could profit they would conduct clinical studies.

Sadly, Obama has the power to use his effin pen and make this all go away, while he sits there and lies, saying he does not: http://www.forbes.com/sites/jacobsullum/2014/01/31/obama-who-evidently-has-not-read-the-controlled-substances-act-denies-that-he-has-the-power-to-reclassify-marijuana/

I cannot find anything regarding ASCO. http://www.asco.org/advocacy/policy-statements

Bible Thumper February 8, 2015 at 2:37 pm

I found an ASCO paper touting the pain releaf of marijuana, but it required membership to read. I never found them voting to remove it as a schedule 1 drug.

I knew three people who died from lung cancer.All from smoking cigarettes.They had easy access to pot but didn’t want it.Marijuana increases appetite,but doesn’t kill pain.If anything,it exacerbates pain.It should be legalized,but doctors and government should stay out,except for decriminalization/legalization so,no matter why you want it,you can get it.Calling it Medical Marijuana is a sham,just like you.

If Republicans have a anti-vaxx problem, how come the vaccination rates are lower in blue states?

MSM perceptions vs. Reality
Get rid of your ignorant biases. Republicans support solid science in favor of vaccination. Just because the the MSM ambushed a few Republicans doesn’t change the facts. It’s Hollywood liberals who oppose vaccination.

Dope peddling is like prostitution. Easy money if your soul is for sale.

And both are a scourge to society, extremely damaging, that the pop culture exalts, while hating God.

As we discuss our need for weed, world leaders and diplomats have attended the Munich Security Conference. It is such an appropriate location considering the main topic of conversation was Ukraine.
I found a letter to the editor written soon after Chamberlain returned from another trip to Munich. As you read, it might be useful to substitute a few words in your own mind. I offer a few suggestions.
Ukraine for Czechoslovakia.
Crimea, Luhansk and Donetsk for Sudetens
Putin for Hitler
Merkel, Hollande, Cameron, and Obama for Chamberlain
Russia for Germany

‘The Funeral of British Honour’

To the Editor of the Manchester Guardian


The flowers piled before 10, Downing Street are very fitting for the funeral of British honour and, it may be, of the British Empire. For sheer degradation the frenzies of last Friday beat even the night of Mafeking.

I appreciate the Prime Minister’s love of peace. I know the horrors of war – a great deal better than he can. But when he returns from saving our skins from a blackmailer at the price of other people’s flesh, and waves, laughing with glee, a piece of paper with Herr Hitler’s name on it, if it were not ghastly, it would be grotesque. No doubt he has never read Mein Kampf in German. But to forget, so utterly, the Reichstag fire, and the occupation of the Rhineland, and 30 June 1934, and the fall of Austria! We have lost the courage to see things as they are. And yet Herr Hitler has kindly put down for us in black and white that programme he is so faithfully carrying out. (For he keeps his threats, though not his promises.) Alliance with Italy and England; the annihilation of France; the conquest for the German plough of the Ukraine; a Reich of 250,000,000. And then?

I may be wrong. No one can tell. There are no sure prophecies in politics, as even Bismarck owned. But just because all roads lead none knows whither, all the more reason to keep the straight path of honour. This is the really unpardonable thing in the conduct of Mr. Chamberlain. Even if what he did were the right thing to do, this was not the way to do it. Any really great man who had felt forced to sacrifice a small nation that trusted in him would at least have returned full of anguish and of shame. But Mr. Chamberlain, though he had good intentions, has no finer sense of honour. He lent himself with complacency to the shrieking adulation of a London that had lost all dignity, without one thought for the agony of Prague. Leaders should have some touch of finer mettle. Mr. Chamberlain, canting of “peace with honour,” has debased the moral currency of England. And not for the first time; and not, I fear, for the last.

Meanwhile the past is past, however shameful. What now? If we have any respect we shall remedy at once that outrageous omission by which all Sudetens in Czech prisons are to be liberated, while no word is said of the Czechs dragged across the frontier into German captivity or arrested in Germany. Secondly, we shall compensate Czechoslovakia for the property we have forced her to leave to the invader – the machinery in Czech-owned factories, the fortifications, and their artillery, – which belonged to the Czech State as a whole, not to the Sudetens, as indefeasibly as the very streets of Prague. Thirdly, unless we propose to barricade ourselves behind pieces of paper kindly autographed by Herr Hitler, we shall look a little better to our defences, even if it means conscription in the near future.

[From a letter by F. L. Lucas of King’s College, Cambridge, British anti-appeasement campaigner, to the Manchester Guardian, 4 October 1938]

America has no leadership representing us, here or abroad.

The un-American they have placed in the White House is as much our enemy as those who hate us, and want to use us to feed their greed, and enhance their power.

Just like after the prayer breakfast with Muslim leaders and he criticized Christians, I’m sure after meeting with Putin, Obama will hold a press conference to talk about how the United States took the Southwest from Mexico. I honestly would not be surprised.

GrandTango February 9, 2015 at 8:37 am

There are a few policy issues I understand that are debatable w/ Obama. In other words, he has his view, and he was elected…You have to accept and respect his right to forward his ideology.

But his disdain for our country – and our way of life -is bewildering. The fact that he gets out and bashes us, but will not be honest about the danger of ISIS is unbelievable…Only his most rabid apologists are still defending that…I think he has destroyed the credibility of the Democrat Party in the process. That is totally unacceptable…
