  1. The Pharmaceutical Companies and Cancer treatment centers will be going crazy trying to debunk this, It will defiantly affect their bottom line as a Cocktail of 5-15 different Med`s replaced with 1 or possibly 2,Resulting in a massive loss of sales and profits, Look for them to now fight Cannabis with a Fury. They cannot make big money off of Healthy people. You think these Corporations actually care about people? NO, They only care about their profits and you cannot make money off of a “Cured” Disease.

  2. How twisted the world is when monetary value replaces anoth person in our hearts, this person could be our brother, our sister, aunt, uncle alike,
    but it is this “green god” that stays forever in the normal person’s sight.
    Money talks,
    Money builds,
    Money deconstructs,
    Money kills,
    and endlessly,
    so long as they can sell “cures” in pills.
