The writing is on the wall. All you need to do is know where to look. People all over have won their battle with cancer using cannabis treatments. The battle is finding the right cannabinoid levels and administration method. In Tommy Chongs case it was a suppository of phoenix tears.

what we need is a chemical that can somehow read cell's genealogy and recognize it as a cancer cell. extremely hard to do even by non chemical means. the answer may not be a chemical solution at all as far as i can see. we may need a form of virus modded to destroy only cells that are vastly different from its neighbors.

I believe they are talking of Cannabis Oil...not smoking it.
I highly doubt it. It's likely they are referring to highly purified canabinoid agonists (i.e., THC, CBD and so on) and discuss the preclinical data. There have been very few studies in humans in regards to treating cancer www.nature.com... but this is now changing and a number are either planned or ongoing www.cancerresearchuk.org... clinicaltrials.gov... clinicaltrials.gov... clinicaltrials.gov...

While, I am in no way an expert on the matter, having only done little research on the issue.
It appears to me that due to the lack of evidence in human trials, because of the lack of in vivo studies, it is too early to claim cannabis as an end-all cure for even certain types of cancers.
I am, by no means, stating that there are not medicinal properties to cannabis, I know it has been used for numerous purposes from anti-nausea, to increasing the appetite of persons going through chemo.

If you are a true libertarian as I, and you find it humorous knowing the silly attempts of the ruling class to force people to their demands, you'd laugh like I and at the same time be sad and angry of the damage they created among others that wont be intimidated.

I still believe a strong mind can cure almost everything. The subconscious mind is too powerful.
