The History of Medicinal Marijuana

The History of Medicinal Marijuana

Medicinal Marijuana has been used for thousands of years and records in China exist from 5000BC documenting its use. Medicinal Marijuana is now legally recognised in Switzerland, Holland, United States of America, India and France. The THC molecule is the most powerful of natural medicines.

It's unfortunate that thousands of law abiding citizens have to suffer the side effects and addiction of sub optimal pharmaceutical treatments. The 'herb' is mentioned in the bible and administered for thousands of years and formerly available on the U.K. National Health Service but was abolished in 1973 due to 'over prescription' and government pressure from big business interests. Industry sources have claimed that pharmaceutical companies would loose as much as 20% of total revenue.

Effective for over 100 aliments, marijuana has always been recognised through written history. The oldest books are made of cannabis hemp, including the 1st Bible and the final draft of the US Constitution. Only in the last 26 years of UK prohibition have numerous vested interests attempted to distort science and history.

The 'Hemp For Victory' affair highlights how past industrialists, publishers, paranoid bureaucratics have built whole bureaucracies based on false premises. Their attempts to suppress information with the doctoring of the U.S. National Archives, National Library of Congress as documented by Anita Roderick's new movie 'The Hemperor'.

In the near future the
In the near future the opinions of the politicians and lawmakers regarding cannabis use will be irrelevant. It will be the will of the people that change the course of history and cannabis will be available to those whom wish to use it for either medicinal or recreational purposes.
The People Want Medical Marijuana
There was a recent poll on the "Sunday Night" program that showed more than 2.8 million people said they wanted medical marijuana legalised in Australia, the poll was a staggering 96% in favour. Since that program aired there have been so many stories in the media exclaiming the benefits of medical marijuana and there has been a noticeable increase and concerted effort to lobby politicians to have another look at the out of date laws. Keep up the good work people and lets all look forward to a new paradigm in cannabis legalisation.

Rheumatoid arthritis/Marijuana

I sit here in pain 24/7 with the Rheumatoid disabling me more each day. On a USA Rheumatoid chat line my friends Ava & Mary tell me their Rheumatoid is almost in remission after 4 months on MMj. They both moved to Colorado to get it and Mary is now returning to work and Ava can enjoy retirement without any more disability and about 90% less pain. Mary found a Rheumatologist who writes scripts for MMj for her medical card as he sees how it has helped her. Australia must catch up, think how many jobs -- made and grown here by Aussie companies who pay tax would pay off that budget deficit, more money for public hospitals, research fund etc. etc.

Medicinal use of Cannabis and cannabis oil
For anyone unfortunate to have an illness that degrades quality of life or life expectancy I personally think fk the law, do what ya gotta do to get ur cannabis treatment. Even if you end up in legal trouble resulting in fines or jail it still beats death, incapacitating pain or debilitating seizures.
Many of our members are using
Many of our members are using CBD Oil to fight cancer and also to help treat the adverse symptoms of chemo and radiation therapy with great success.
