cannabis prohibition - is it actually due to the huge profits

"first a WARNING - to those suffering - posts such as the one below from balogh - do not send money, chances are they are conmen and in any case highly illegal.

"and that is the second problem - why is cannabis illegal to grow and possess even in one's own home?

"Why did Mr Cutler have to risk is freedom by using oil illegally produced, when a pahramaceutical company is allowed to grow the plants to extract all the active constitituents and make an expensive alcohol-based spray called Sativex, mainly for pain and MS, but so expensive that many health authorities refuse to supply it?

"one can of spray costing over £100 - one could grow the plants and make oil safely and efficiently at home for just a few pounds.

"the claim that cannabis can halt or cure cancer has been around since the 1970's, ignored by governments and cancer research charities, whilst people take ineffective treatments that save just a few lives and make many people worse, at great cost and great profit to the pharmaceutical giants.


"is it actually due to the huge profits?

"People need to demand that the oil be produced and prescribed - and it's already being grown and made to make Sativex, which makes a mockery of the Misuse of Drugs Act schedules that say cannabis has no medicinal uses.

"Corruption leading to premature death - somebody has to answer for that!"
Cannabis oil cured my terminal cancer

CANCER patient Mike Cutler yesterday hailed cannabis as a miracle cure for the disease after his symptoms vanished when he began taking the drug.

Mike, 63, was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2009 and was given a transplant. But in late 2012 he learned cancer had attacked the replacement organ.

In desperation he began researching online and found a YouTube video advocating the use of cannabis oil for cancer.

He decided to try it – and claims that three days after taking the banned Class B drug his excruciating pain disappeared. Two weeks later he began coughing up blood, which he believes contained the dead cancer cells.

The grandfather-of-nine went for a biopsy at the Royal Free Hospital in London in May and doctors told him the cancer cells had gone.
Retired builder Mike, of Hastings, East Sussex, recalled: “Finding I could die was terrible, so I began searching for something that could help me.

“I couldn’t accept that I was going to die. And when I found I was cured I was completely shocked.

“I’m a normal family man, not a druggie. But I had a serious illness and this helped. I can’t believe cannabis oil isn’t being used regularly as a treatment. It is a miracle cure. The NHS should use it.”

Mike resorted to illegally buying the substance from a dealer and used it to make his own tablets, taking one a day.

He is now campaigning for law changes to allow medicinal use of cannabis.

He spoke at a debate on the subject with Professor David Nutt and Green MP Caroline Lucas in Brighton.

Mike’s claim came as research published last week by the University of East Anglia revealed the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis, Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, can help fight cancerous cells.
