Censorship Equals Murder

Upon writing my Hub article Did The Illegal Criminalization of Marijuana Lead To The Downfall of America, I was simple stunned by the response from my readers and their willingness to share information on the subject. To me the article has received a huge amount of support, considering the subject is still not all that popular. The Medical Marijuana Mystery doesn't do this article justice for a title, but will have to do.

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act!

George Orwell

I had no idea that this subject was still so popular, but due to the enormous amount of support from readers and their willingness to share links to other sites (which I encourage, rules be damned) on the subject, I felt a follow-up article was necessary. In my original article I barely touched on the subject of the medicinal aspects of the plant cannabis.

First of all I think it is important for all to know that the term Marijuana is actually just slang that was created for disinformation purposes, such as Dope, Pot, Kind Bud, Reefer and a whole list of others. The plant is known scientifically as Cannabis and has three distinct strains, of which two (Cannabis sativa & Cannabis indica) are used primarily for smoking or eating and the other is what would be considered Hemp (Cannabis ruderalis) and is used primarily for textiles, clothes, rope, paper and other products.

The Columbia History of the World states that the oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating back to approximately 8,000 BC.

On another social site, someone actually tried to tell me that Hemp and Marijuana were to completely different plants, perhaps ignorance truly is bliss! Contempt Prior to Investigation is a concept I abhor and is the primary point of this article.

I too was blissfully ignorant of the uses of marijuana for medicinal purposes, now upon conducting just a few days of research am appalled at the disinformation and outright lies being perpetrated on the American people.

My own Father suffers from non-Hodkins Lymphoma, but would never, ever consider using marijuana to control his cancer. As a matter of fact his job would not allow him to do so.

Which leads me to another point if a person chooses to use a drug that is illegal to control a disease that is killing them should that person be liable for prosecution, how absurd?!

My point to this is why should a person be prosecuted for buying a drug that is imported into their country. They say that there is a War on Drugs and yet it has been proven in the Iran-Contra hearings in Congress that the CIA uses the illegal importation of drugs to finance their sale of weapons! (See Iran-Contra Affair)

My point is that if the Federal Government can't or won't keep it out of the country and it can be used to treat a variety of illnesses, why shouldn't I use it. It's not my fault that they are inept at doing their jobs or have been bribed.

Now let's get to some facts, the whole reason I'm so appalled and saddened by America's blissful ignorance of the facts and why censorship is the equivalent of murder.

I recently read an article by a fellow Hub writer on one of his sites called A Cookbook of Consciousness. This article (An Objective Look at Medical Marijuana) he says was inspired by my own recently published article mentioned above. In this article he list a site about a study done at the Medical College of Virginia in 1974 that actually proves that cancerous mice when injected with THC the active ingredient in Cannabis that gets one 'High' reduced the tumors and even cured some of the mice of cancer!

When a cure for cancer is illegal and actually censored from the American people, that to me is the equivalent of murder!

This study was immediately shut down and denied any further funding, as the whole point was to show that Marijuana was harmful to the immune system. This is clearly not the case and I will show evidence to prove this ascertain later in the article. What is truly appalling and bordering on criminal is that all of the records of this study were destroyed on the orders of the Reagan/Bush Administration, War On Drugs Indeed!

He goes on to say that another study done outside of America almost twenty-five years later backs up these facts. This study, known as the Madrid study, is actually the first credited study of the injection of THC into living animals, due to the censorship of the research in Virginia. The Madrid Study was published in the March, 2000 issue of Nature Medicine, but only ran once on February 29, 2000 on the AP and UPI news wires in America.

The study done in 1974 at the Medical College of Virginia was reported once in a Washington Post article under the Local section called Cancer Curb Is Studied.

"The active chemical agent in marijuana curbs the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice and may also suppress the immunity reaction that causes rejection of organ transplants, a Medical College of Virginia team has discovered." The researchers "found that THC slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36 percent."


The Madrid study using rats instead of mice found that . . .

"All the rats left untreated uniformly died 12-18 days after glioma (brain cancer) cell inoculation ... Cannabinoid (THC)-treated rats survived significantly longer than control rats. THC administration was ineffective in three rats, which died by days 16-18. Nine of the THC-treated rats surpassed the time of death of untreated rats, and survived up to 19-35 days. Moreover, the tumor was completely eradicated in three of the treated rats."

This folks is censorship, curing cancer would be a one time treatment and hence would not allow the medical industry to treat your symptoms indefinitely until you eventually die or go broke, or both. Since no follow up research has been done, at least publicly, the results of these studies are still debatable and I encourage all whom read this article to leave their comments on the subject either for or against, as intelligent discussion is healthy.

There are now currently 16 states that allow for the use of Medical Marijuana and yet the Federal Government still considers it a class 1 narcotic making it illegal. This is the same Federal Government unable or unwilling to balance the budget, that uses illegal narcotic sales to finance illegal Wars and censors alternative medical information while supporting the own corrupt activities.

Other interesting tidbits of information

Is that some studies have actually concluded that pot smokers live longer more disease free lives and that most pot smokers are considered non violent.

Here is an example that shows just how non violent pot smokers are . . .

The African Hemp Cults

One of the most interesting stories concerning cannabis in Africa relates to the way in which the drug transformed the Bashilange from a tribe of feuding warriors to one more dedicated to peace and goodwill.

The storyteller is a German explorer, Herman von Wissman.

The Bashilange were originally a very warlike people, Wissman tells us:

"One tribe with another, one village with another, always lived at daggers drawn... The number of scars which some ancient men display among their tatooings gives evidence of this. The Ben-Riamba, "Sons of Hemp", found more and more followers; they began to have social relations with each other as they became less barbarous and made laws."

The transition from feud to friendship was only one of the changes initiated by the hemp cult. An entire religion came into being based onriamba, the Bashilange word for cannabis, which became the symbol of peace, friendship, magic, and protection. Tribesmen were no longer permitted to carry weapons in their villages, they called each other friend, and they greeted one another with the word moyo, meaning "life" and "health". Although formerly cannibals, they abstained their previous custom of eating each other!

. . . and here I thought it gave you the munchies.

Examples of Censorship or Ignoring the Facts

In 2003 the US Supreme Court ruled that Television News Stations are not required to tell the public the truth. This law passed and not ONE TV News Station covered the story, does anyone wonder why?

Hurricane Erin, a category 3 Hurricane was 75 miles off the coast of Long Island on the morning of September 11, 2001 but was not reported at all, why?

Often controversial laws or news that might alarm the public or require embarrassing explanations by corporations simple go unreported. Those that provide the advertising dollars often are able to hush up embarrassing coverage.

Also government disinformation can lead to misleading newscast and confusion. Recently reported earthquakes in Virginia and Denver less than 24 hours apart and it two parts of the Country not known for many earthquakes went widely unreported Nationally.

The earthquake in Virginia was overshadowed by an advancing category 3 Hurricane and the earthquake in Denver was not reported on the National news. Both of these quakes had unusual seismic readings, closer to recorded underground nuclear explosions than true earthquake readings.

David Wilcock has interesting information on both of these earthquakes on his website Divine Cosmos, along with many interesting theories on the true nature of this planet and those that run it.

Another whistle blower with a unique story to tell is Stewart Swerdlow one of the few survivors of the Montauk Project, known for it's work in the Philadelphia Experiment.

Two things I want to leave you with before I go . . .

1.) This quote by Stewart Swerdlow about new legislation . . .

“The broadcast media’s ignorance and unwillingness to cover the National Defense Authorization Act, a radical piece of legislation which outrageously redefines the US homeland as a “battlefield” and makes US citizens subject to military apprehension and detainment for life without access to a trial or attorney, is unacceptable."

2.) Another new law that was recently passed and not mentioned in our media, is an excerpt from an article written by Suri Crowe on wavy.com . . . .

Congress quietly lifted a 5-year old ban on funding horse meat inspections last month. The legislation once again clears the way for horse slaughter houses to legally operate in the United States, for the first time since 2006. President Obama signed it into law November 18th.

This is the kind of censorship that is designed to confuse, divide and keep an ignorant public arguing endlessly over what is true and what is not while the elite continue to get rich and the public continues to pay for our ignorance.

Although the title America the Land of the Censored and the Medical Marijuana Mystery is slightly misleading, I hope that I have shown how censorship can affect the way we learn to view the world we live in.

Get a job. Here's one for you: http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/browse-care...

Seriously, great hub as usual, but slow readers and those with ADD like me can only follow about 500 words before they get distracted. I suggest sticking with one subject at a time.

Perhaps your right, I can always go back and do some editing. I noticed you neither voted it up or down, that's cool . . . I have a memory like a steel trap.

When you least expect it, expect it!

Pharmaceutical companies make too much money to allow marijuana to cut into their profits.


geordmc 5 years ago from Beliot, Wisconsin

It;s not just pharmaceutical companies. Gov;t also uses this as an excuse to spy and harass the general public and those of us who disagree with them!

rasta1 5 years ago from Jamaica

The American government pays Jamaican politicians and law enforcement to keep marijuana illegal. Then America turns around and legalizes it in California, Massachusetts, etc

I don't get it


somethgblue profile image

somethgblue 5 years ago from Shelbyville, Tennessee Author

Rasta1, Geordmc and C. Evans,

The States are actually helping their own people use it for medicinal purposes, two studies have shown it reduces cancerous tumors in mice and has cured some completely.

Read the http://hubpages.com/education/Did-The-Illegal-Crim... to understand completely the situation.

The reason it is illegal is because Billionaires want to remain Billionaires and don't care who they screw to do it!

Pharmaceutical companies cannot isolate the THC compound and hence cannot patent it, if they could it would be legal in some form.

Marijuana has many uses besides getting you high and can be used as a fuel source, feeding the hungry and replace STEEL, read the link and you too can be enlightened . . .


RobSchneider 5 years ago

Minor correction: they can make a synthetic THC, but they can't get rid of the high that accompanies it. In the Spanish study, the synthetic had "similar" results in shrinking tumours in rats to the actual THC. I think big pharma's dilemma is in justifying the use of a synthetic (patented, profitable) THC when the real thing works just as well. Then there's the question of whether they really want to create a cure, especially a cheap one.


somethgblue profile image

somethgblue 5 years ago from Shelbyville, Tennessee Author

Yes the cure is the problem, thanks for the correction!

Any thoughts on why we only see one side of the Moon, possible hub fodder?

Doesn't seem to be much interest in Medical Marijuana . . .


geordmc 5 years ago from Beliot, Wisconsin

It's not just the pharma co.s. According to federal law ONLY man-made drugs are capable of "curing" diseases. What a load of crap! For every illness there is a natural cure somewhere on earth. We just won't go look for it.


somethgblue profile image

somethgblue 5 years ago from Shelbyville, Tennessee Author

Yes Geordmc we often are more than willing to treat the symptoms (Mo' Money) than find the source or create a solution or cure!


geordmc 5 years ago from Beliot, Wisconsin

Makes you wonder how many actual cures are being kept from us now, doesn't it? All for the almighty dollar!


somethgblue profile image

somethgblue 5 years ago from Shelbyville, Tennessee Author

I don't wonder . . . there is a cure for every disease known to mankind, guaranteed and it starts with GREED!

Great hub though I agree with one poster it is a bit lengthy. I wonder if you ever came across the article on the development of a glaucoma medicine from marijuana by Jamaican scientist. http://www.cannabisculture.com/articles/59.html

The FDA have blocked the use of the medicine in the US while their scientist want to find how the two Jamaican scientist were able to get rid of the psycoactive components and isolate the active principles of the plant and produce the drug. Ever since I came across this article a few years ago I have never forgotten it.

Jamaica gets a very bad rap on the international scene for marijuana yet always wonder why it is such huge demand by the people of the same countries that label the drug as been bad.

I truly wish the USA's war on drugs would extend to a war on guns and ammunition as their inactive approach towards stemming the flow of guns and ammunition into other countries is appalling. They continue to benefit financially from this with little care as to what happens in these countries other than to turn around and behave holy righteous warning their citizens to be careful when travelling to countries such as Jamaica. Seems some of us make huge profits from hypocrisy.

Ohic32,

WOW that would be a great name for a hub . . . The Profit of Hypocrisy!

If you don't write it I will, but it is such a good idea I wouldn't want to steal it!

When I was doing research for this article and the Illegal Criminalization article I read extensively about the Rasta movement in Jamaica and Africa and how many of the tribe members live longer more disease free lives.

Cool . . . something old, something new, something borrowed, and I reckon you can finish the poem!


jenubouka 4 years ago

I probably should read the first part, but with the cancer part, the gov slides real close on that, in the effects of altering the chemicals of THC and taking away the "high" what a downer. My mom lost her battle to breast cancer and it was only after she was determined terminal did they allow her any kind of marijuana relief.

It is greed it is control yet as I read your article and comments I believe the public's constant fight for this will prevail, although we will get taxed out the ass most likely.

I hate the idea that this medicinal drug is so frowned upon while we shove addicts a synthetic replica of their drug of choice to "help" with withdrawals? HUH?

Harriet Beecher 2 years ago

I am Harriet Beecher, I live in San Francisco USA, I want to say a big thank you to Dr. Rick Simpson for saving my son’s life with his miracle oil on the 10th of January 2014 from his terrible brain tumor.

My son Ben was diagnosed of brain tumor last year October 5th 2013, the doctor told me there was nothing that could be done for my son and I was so scared to lose him because he is the only one I got, I lost his dad May 2011 and I was not ready to lose my only son. My co-worker told me about Dr. Rick Simpson cannabis oil and how it helped her dad so I collected his contact ricksimpsoncannabisoil_phoenix@outlook.com and wrote him, purchase the oil and used it on my son, last week we went for checkup and the doctor who told me that my son had few months to live confirmed that my son no longer has brain tumor.

I am so over whelmed and full of joy, I feel like shouting to the whole world, I just got my joy back. Am so grateful Sir, thank you so much. God will bless you Sir.

That my folks is why the AMA has censored a cure for cancer because they know it is out there ready for use and don't want to lose the Billions they are making in ineffectual treatments.


geordmc 2 years ago from Beliot, Wisconsin

It's not the AMA so much as it's Big Pharma paying off gov't because THEY CAN'T PATENT IT! So much for democracy where the majority is supposed to rule. Now it's who can give them more kickbacks.

I just wanted to point out that Harriet Beecher, the commentator from 2 weeks ago, is a spammer. Just go to your favorite search engine and type in the following: I am Harriet Beecher, I live in San Francisco USA, I want to say a big thank you to Dr. Rick Simpson for saving my son’s life with his miracle oil on the 10th of January 2014 from his terrible brain tumor.

You will see that identical comment (plus the rest of it) plastered all over the Internet on various comment fields throughout cyberspace. I'm assuming they are selling some fictitious miracle snake oil or something since they left a contact e-mail; ha-ha!
