Illegal Healers VS. Precription Killers

Updated on June 14, 2016

This is the way the government and pharmaceutical get and stay rich by legal addiction!

Becoming addicted to prescription pills, and exposing the risk of taking them.

I am a disabled veteran. I am on several medications to treat my condition. One of these is a very dangerous, addictive, and possibly a killer drug. I have severe PTSD, I'm antisocial. I don't even go outside unless I have to. In fact I don't even look out the windows throughout the day. I'm confined to my home and I'm ok with that. Among that I have schizophrenia, Severe panic and anxiety attacks, bi polar disorder, I have hallucinations, can't stand people, and I am paranoid.

The most dangerous of these drugs which are prescribed by a physician is Xanax. This drug is for my severe panic attacks. I am on the highest dosage allowed and I still have panic attacks. For the most part the drug works but it is a dangerous and addictive drug, not to mention it can kill you easily kill you. Some of the less harmful possible side effects of Xanax (alprazolam) include:

  • drowsiness, dizziness, feeling tired or irritable;

  • blurred vision, headache, memory problems, trouble concentrating;

  • sleep problems (insomnia);

  • swelling in your hands or feet;

  • muscle weakness, lack of balance or coordination, slurred speech;

  • upset stomach, nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea;

  • increased sweating, dry mouth, stuffy nose; or

  • appetite or weight changes, loss of interest in sex.

    The serious side effect are:

  • depressed mood, thoughts of suicide or hurting yourself, unusual risk-taking behavior, decreased inhibitions, no fear of danger;

  • confusion, hyperactivity, agitation, hostility, hallucinations;

  • feeling like you might pass out;

  • urinating less than usual or not at all;

  • chest pain, pounding heartbeats or fluttering in your chest;

  • uncontrolled muscle movements, tremor, seizure (convulsions); or

jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

I have had some of the less harmful side affects, but I have also get the serious ones more often. Every day you see a disclaimer on the TV that says if you have taken this drug and you or some you know has suffered, this and that, or even death please call for information about a class action lawsuit. Well I haven't died yet ,but I feel that I may not make it to my forties. It seems that longer time goes on the more immune I become. So where do I turn to next? I can't increase dosage without endangering my life, as if it not all ready in danger,

The doctors don't seem to know what to prescribe. I know that everybody is different , but for 12 years I have went to several doctors, in which they would tell me that I was just depressed or that I was too young for all this. So for 12 years I tried to put on a face of normality and pretended to be ok so I could work and pay child support and survive. In these 12 years I must of had close to 20 jobs. All of them I just walked out from because I couldn't handle being around people, or I the noises scared me, or I would have bosses that had no idea what was going on inside of my head, so I had to leave.

Now my mom has to take care of me and pay my bills and distribute my medicines. It makes me feel helpless and shameful. Here I am a 32 year old and my 66 year old mother is taking care of me while I am trying to file for disability. On top of that I have legal pressures from the prosecutor for child support. All while I can't work and the support piles up more and more. I love my son and I am always here for him, but I feel ashamed that I can't work to put food, cloths, and shoes on him. It's a terrible feeling.

I don't know what the future holds. I guess none of us do, but I know something has to give. I can't pretend to be normal anymore, it has taken a toll out of me and lead me to a nervous breakdown. That's when I knew I had to get tough with the doctors and let them know how serious of the conditions I was having. Finally I found a doctor that is listing to me and specializes with the conditions I have. Which I thank God the he sent her to me. I was ready to give up. Even though I am getting the help I need now it still doesn't lower my fears of the medicine's I'm on. But the scary part is around 34,000 died last year from prescription drugs that the people who were taking them thought they were safe.

The next portion of this will be about illegal healer that hasn't hurt or killed anyone and has endless benefits. I'll talk about how many uses it has and also the medical benefits it has without and dangerous side affects and basically wont hurt you or kill you. America needs to hear this because the government is in big pharmaceuticals pocket and are preventing a product that could pull in so much taxes we could actually pull our county out of debt.

Medical marijuana is a natural medicine not altered or extracted from other plants to make a pill. It also has endless benefits to big industry making cheaper p

This is just for some of the known medical benefits, but the government prevents medical trials to find actual benefits for the plant. No I do not call marijuana a drug. By definition a drug is made by either extracting juices or saps from different plants, mixing them together, drying them out, then pressing them into pills. You might as well say its the same way cocaine is made.

Marijuana on the other hand is grown, pruned, matured to ripened age then cut from the plant then just dried. No other process is necessary. from there chop it up and smoke or add to food and consume it. So far only 2 deaths have occurred due to marijuana because the two men had cardiovascular complications in which they could had just as easily died from walking up a flight of stairs.

I remember a few years back hearing a story about a young girl, I think she was 7 or 8, that had close to 300 seizures a month. Expert botanist cross breed some strains of marijuana and made a new species just for her seizures. She started treatment and went from 300 a month to 1 or 2 a month. This is a merical plant. I can't even imagine how relieved this girl was, that a simple plant had almost completely cured her from her seizers.

Right now there a 5 states that sell legal marijuana. One of those is Colorado. They made so much money off the taxes the state actually had to give back money to tax payers because they paid too much in legal sells of marijuana. Why doesn't the government wakeup? This could bring us out of debt. Another place where it's legal is Washington D.C. our nations capital, But somehow they still have a problem with it. You would think if they really didn't want it around it would be legal at the nations capital. 20 other states are approved for medical marijuana, and with most of those states have decriminalized it to almost like getting a traffic ticket.

So all of this covers the benefits of medical and legal marijuana. Next I will talk about how industries can use the waste products from the stems, leaves, and seeds to make as many things that you could probably never think of making with a plant that already has so much to offer.

Capitalist and the Revolution of Industry.

So Many Uses Hard To Imagine How Much Good It Could Do!

On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much fiber as 2 to 3 acres of cotton. Hemp fiber is stronger and softer than cotton, lasts twice as long as cotton, and will not mildew.

Cotton grows only in moderate climates and requires more water than hemp; but hemp is frost tolerant, requires only moderate amounts of water, and grows in all 50 states. Cotton requires large quantities of pesticides and herbicides--50% of the world's pesticides/herbicides are used in the production of cotton. Hemp requires no pesticides, no herbicides, and only moderate amounts of fertilizer.

On an annual basis, 1 acre of hemp will produce as much paper as 2 to 4 acres of trees. From tissue paper to cardboard, all types of paper products can be produced from hemp.

The quality of hemp paper is superior to tree-based paper. Hemp paper will last hundreds of years without degrading, can be recycled many more times than tree-based paper, and requires less toxic chemicals in the manufacturing process than does paper made from trees.

Hemp can be used to produce fiberboard that is stronger and lighter than wood. Substituting hemp fiberboard for timber would further reduce the need to cut down our forests.

Hemp can be used to produce strong, durable and environmentally-friendly plastic substitutes. Thousands of products made from petroleum-based plastics can be produced from hemp-based composites.

It takes years for trees to grow until they can be harvested for paper or wood, but hemp is ready for harvesting only 120 days after it is planted. Hemp can grow on most land suitable for farming, while forests and tree farms require large tracts of land available in few locations. Harvesting hemp rather than trees would also eliminate erosion due to logging, thereby reducing topsoil loss and water pollution caused by soil runoff.

Hemp seeds contain a protein that is more nutritious and more economical to produce than soybean protein. Hemp seeds are not intoxicating. Hemp seed protein can be used to produce virtually any product made from soybean: tofu, veggie burgers, butter, cheese, salad oils, ice cream, milk, etc. Hemp seed can also be ground into a nutritious flour that can be used to produce baked goods such as pasta, cookies, and breads.

Hemp seed oil can be used to produce non-toxic diesel fuel, paint, varnish, detergent, ink and lubricating oil. Because hemp seeds account for up to half the weight of a mature hemp plant, hemp seed is a viable source for these products.

Just as corn can be converted into clean-burning ethanol fuel, so can hemp. Because hemp produces more biomass than any plant species (including corn) that can be grown in a wide range of climates and locations, hemp has great potential to become a major source of ethanol fuel.

Literally millions of wild hemp plants currently grow throughout the U.S. Wild hemp, like hemp grown for industrial use, has no drug properties because of its low THC content. U.S. marijuana laws prevent farmers from growing the same hemp plant that proliferates in nature by the millions.

With all these qualities like reversing logging companies, bio-degradable plastics, and all the other uses I say again, the government needs to wake up. It's time for change, and with a new election maybe the next president will get smart and see how beneficial it would be to the economy not just for taxes to get out of debt, but create jobs, less people dying from prescription pills, more room in prisons for real criminals, and helping the environment. Come on Big Brother get on the wagon with rest of us. It will do nothing but good for the country.

With all the Medical and Industrial Benefits, Let's Make This Happen.

How Do You Feel About Complete Legalization Along Side With Medical Marijuana?

Beautiful Plant

Just Some of the Benefits of Medical Marijuana

In a Nutshell

The benefits of marijuana far outweigh the negative hearsay. Even crime has went down 13% in almost all the states with medical or legal marijuana. Try to keep an open mind about all of this. For so many years it has gotten a bad reputation because people didn't understand the facts. It is ultimately up to you to make you own minds about it.

Remember alcohol was illegal once, but alcohol is far more dangerous and kills more people every year than any drug.

Let me know about your thoughts negative or positive I would love to hear your opinion.
