  1. Those green crosses started my research on mmj back in 2009 while in CO. AR voters approved medical marijuana back in 2016. They’ve been dragging their feet so much that there STILL is no product available (except the black market). It’s all about money. They don’t allow anyone to grow their own here though. Since it’s not covered by insurance, low income people are still going to be left behind or forced to break the law if they grow their own.

    The DEA should be defunded. They jail and fine and impound, but all sorts of deadly drugs are still on the streets. I can’t be the only one coming to this conclusion. The whole “nanny state” thing is costing too much money and too many lives.

    If there’s a demand, the black market will meet it. They restricted pain pills so much even legitimate pain patients are left suffering. The black market just pops up with look-alike pills with chemicals thousands of times stronger than anything used in medicine. Just one of those pills can kill. Each batch is different so they never know what will happen when they take it. The chemicals used changes so fast they can’t even identify some of the opioids found in overdose victims.

    Sadly, it seems to me the crackdown is just making things worse. I don’t understand how they justify placing cannabis on schedule one. It’s all about money. Chemo and radiation are barbaric, making the patients lives miserable and still doesn’t work on everyone.

    Cannabis should be the FIRST medicine tried, not the last. It’s time to demand our government legalize cannabis. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel! We can’t ALL simply move to CO, and we shouldn’t have to. Access to safe and effective medicine should be a basic human right. Prison should be only for those who are violent and a danger to others.

    Alcohol and tobacco EACH kill more people in the US than even opioids, yet they are legal to anyone of age! There is no lethal dose of marijuana yet it’s scheduled one?!?! Our government’s greed is palpable. It’s obvious that these laws are NOT for our protection.
    It’s not gonna change until enough people contact their representatives and legislators making them use REAL science, not reefer madness!

    Funny how it’s legal in DC isn’t it?

  2. Very grateful for all this information , much respect to all . The plant is sacred as this lady explains no other man made medicine can compare . The plant has so many healing properties and there is a lot of research if one takes the time to find out for themselves . Big Pharma now owns the patent for a synthetic form , why use a synthetic form when nature has all we need ? why swim in a pool when we have the beautiful ocean ?

  3. thank u too doctors tell the truth and for me the thing no one died from none of this weed or cbd oil and my point one does not get high from cbd oil and we as humans have a system in are bodies for this there should be no debate about it should be legal like any other plant and im not a weed smoker i dont care how it makes me feel but it does not kill and yes kids should not be smoking it unless they have medical problems and also they are making lower cbd levels in weed strains makes me wonder i think thc and cbd work together

  4. Dr. Mercola is extremely knowledgeable about natural healing. His website is excellent. Here he is taking on a challenging topic and helping understanding about the politics and healing properties of cannabis.

  5. Weed motivates me to do things. I usually find it hard to motivate my self to do much, but on weed I feel a natural energy and ability to get things done. I also don't understand how people say anxiety is a part of this. I have serious anxiety and when I smoke I have no anxiety and never have, so I don't understand where this comes from. I have schizophrenia and smoked long before symptoms started showing. My symptoms started showing after a traumatic period in my life. I think weed helps my mental illness.

  6. I'm suffering from unbearable neuropathy from internal shingles…I know smoking actually makes my pain intensify..however I made some brownies and whalah !
    Here's the problem Not only do I live in a state that's still in the dark ages but I can't afford it….I'm considering becoming a medical refugee…I'm a musician and I haven't played in 3 yrs….any of you out there that understands what that truly means will sympathize…I'm on the edge…any suggestions would be welcomed.

  7. i. Re: schizophrenia; correlation vs. causation.

    ii. The United States government should be held accountable for lying to ppl about this substance.

  8. i have a problem with artificial drugs being prescribed to me with side effects like haldol prolixen invega risperdol clozapine causing involuntary movements and im going to go to colorado to cure my side effects with cannabis it works and i want to grow my own for personal use….

  9. you were so spot on about the hippies cause when they used cannibis they got spiritually awake and saw all the corruption and wanted to speak up for the truth ,and yes the government had to shut them up . great work you both doing thank god for you . i'm right behind you ,i been guided to the truth for years

  10. Cannabis should be a Sch 5 drug… Schedule I

    Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:

    heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote

    Schedule II

    Schedule II drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence. These drugs are also considered dangerous. Some examples of Schedule II drugs are:

    Combination products with less than 15 milligrams of hydrocodone per dosage unit (Vicodin), cocaine, methamphetamine, methadone, hydromorphone (Dilaudid), meperidine (Demerol), oxycodone (OxyContin), fentanyl, Dexedrine, Adderall, and Ritalin

    Schedule III

    Schedule III drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence. Schedule III drugs abuse potential is less than Schedule I and Schedule II drugs but more than Schedule IV. Some examples of Schedule III drugs are:

    Products containing less than 90 milligrams of codeine per dosage unit (Tylenol with codeine), ketamine, anabolic steroids, testosterone

    Schedule IV

    Schedule IV drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with a low potential for abuse and low risk of dependence. Some examples of Schedule IV drugs are:

    Xanax, Soma, Darvon, Darvocet, Valium, Ativan, Talwin, Ambien, Tramadol

    Schedule V

    Schedule V drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with lower potential for abuse than Schedule IV and consist of preparations containing limited quantities of certain narcotics. Schedule V drugs are generally used for antidiarrheal, antitussive, and analgesic purposes. Some examples of Schedule V drugs are:

    cough preparations with less than 200 milligrams of codeine or per 100 milliliters (Robitussin AC), Lomotil, Motofen, Lyrica, Parepectolin

  11. Excellent informative talk explaining CBD THC properties.
    ESSENTIAL Oils are not oils, or oily substances, they are water-like substances, (plant hormones) found within plant, it’s flowers, it’s seeds, it’s root, leaves, all need to be combined, blended dilution with carrier oils, in proper ratio, grape, olive soybean, hemp-seed oils, for essential oils to penetrate the skin.

  12. No medical use, so the government has a medical patent, look it up Patent#6630507, also they grow at Ole Miss University for medical use, This government has lost all creditability , these people just double down on stupid!!!

  13. I am just starting to get into the ECS and I have been on opiates for 5 year's now, I stopped taking the opiates and it was hard, but now I finally have my life back, big pharma tried to kill me but lost a customer in doing so.

  14. What we need is a million person match on the white house to get it moved from schedule 1 to schedule 2 so we can have doctor's say we can use it. I am a 100% wheelchair disabled veteran with really bad spinal pain all the time due to the Vietnam war and have had 7 low back surgery s with 10 disc removed and lots of rods and plates put in. The vs gives me 10mg of oxycodone and 15mg of morphine a day that doesn't help and if I use anything like this i loose all my meds because I have to drug test every 60 days

  15. I eat the stuff raw and it helps tremendously with neck and back pain i have suffered with for years. No pill Ive ever been prescribed has been strong enough to do so and all have come with horrible side affects and if taken long enough probably would have done unseen damage to my insides. Its not legal to use in my country but i feel zero guilt in using something so natural that absolutely should be available to everyone.

  16. I would, if it were legal, cook stews, health drinks and bake with it…my inflammation would be helped greatly. I am considering moving to Hawaii. I just don't get it!!:We all are already being pumped with all kind of toxic chemicals, but its illegal to use something that grows wild, naturally. Unbelievable. This is an old battle we the people have been dealing with for decades..when will it end already. This herb is a god given right…I am soon sick and tired of man (human being) trying to put a dollar sign on everything that's on this earth..Give it up. There're are some things, you just can't put a dollar sign on. gawddddd! by the way, you guys are fantastic.😊

  17. Oh we need doctors like this – a whole bunch of doctors like this one. I applaud her because I am sure she is being demonized for standing for non-drug therapy, even though she can prove that non-drug therapies do work.
