Seriously...

Until people start talking about:

Legalizing HEMP, and stop limiting the debate to "medicinal" marijuana...we will continue to get nowhere.

It's like the government one day made all the colors of the rainbow illegal, and then a group comes out protesting for the legalization of the color blue instead of THE RAINBOW...lol

umm...HELLO?...What about all the OTHER colors? By using HEMP as the rally cry for it to be legal in ALL it's entirety, that would make the strongest protest and point.

Ron Paul even speaks of this...he says: "What about HEMP"?

Are we really that ignorant?

Anyway...that poor child is obviously malnurished. That is to say not getting the proper healthy, organic food and Vitamins, Minerals, and especially Trace Minerals his growing body needs to be healthy.

I guarantee he is vitamin B6 deficient. This vitamin is the most important in regards to the nervous system.
-OUR BRAINS ARE PART OF THAT SYSTEM...they don't call them NEURONS for nothing!

What do you think is going to happen if your nervous system can't regenerate itself normally?...just watch this video again.

Then he gets diagnosed with some B.S. symptoms and will probably eventually be put on some pharmaceutical drug that will make him even worse. And by all means wash it down with some mountain dew!

This is the furure of America if we do not start taking responsibility for ourselves.

We've been hypnotized to believe that:

Synthetic pills w/ dangerous side effects = Good

Organic plants w/o dangerous side effects = Bad

Somehow, their hypnosis worked with a lot of people.

it seems so ridiculous

it seems so ridiculous doesn't it?

Wow, the confusion on the

Wow, the confusion on the interviewers face when that Harvard medical guy said that MJ is a wonder drug and not dangerous tells it all about the MSM. Wtf is confusing about using a natural substance as an alternative to the highly dangerous and addictive synthetic drugs which corporations reap massive profits off of?

marijuanna

GOD said i give you ALL the seed bearing plants(ALL)
not some,not just these and not these,but all of them
before the isrealites had there first stone temple,they were using marijuanna in their services and devotions to their GOD(the one who gave them the seed bearing plants)
and GOD looked at his creation and said (it was good)
to dsay what he created as bad is to say he can make mistakes,or you,his creation, are somehow smarter than he
why oh why would scientists find in all animal thc receptors in their brains?
why would the fed gov feel the need to patent this plant?
after all they did not create this nor have a hand in its growing( us patent #6,630,507)
why would the likes of dupont and the railroad execs be behind the illegalization of hemp amd marijuanna? (money)

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

The ORIGINAL medicine plant...

First recorded history being in the The Lost Book Of Enki...the tablets being tooled over 6000 yrs. ago and referring to the arrival of the Annunaki 450,000 yrs. prior to that writing !!!

I believe it is in book 6...but may be in 5...anyway it is the book that talks of the arrival to earth.

Discover Costa Rica

the human condition is drawn

the human condition is drawn to new experiences, and mind altering substances are included.

THC (aka cannabis) is the ONLY substance that I know of that has a built in "safety check" against our propensity to over indulge.

NOTHING ELSE is as safe as cannabis for recreational use.

WHY WOULD WE DENY OUR SELFS THIS?

70's Anti-Marijuana Propaganda with Commentary from Bill Hicks

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Of course it is.

Only a complete moron would speak out of line about a plant that has so many purposes. We have been lied to about everything. We are processed and manufactured lemmings. For anyone that opposes this herb I surely hope this person doesn't drink alcohol, doesn't take any synthetic drugs, no coffee and no tobacco, for all of these are much more poisonous and destructive than pot.
As most law enforcement will note from experience, they would much rather come to a disturbance with someone on cannabis than someone drunk off alcohol. Alcohol makes one careless, rude, violent and fearless where as pot will make one agreeable, relaxed, cautious and thoughtful. What recreational pastime sounds more humane and responsible.,Over 400,000 die every year in this country alone from alcohol, not to mention the countless spousal abuse cases directly related to alcohol. I have never heard of a case where anyone became a headline for violence when on marijuana.
Time to grow up, wake up and not put up with irrational propaganda set to remove our rights.
Putting people in jail for this is another big reason this country is clueless. Almost one million people were put into jail for pot, it would be laughable if it weren't true. Many are hard working Americans paying taxes and have no other bouts with the law.
I'm so done with this ridiculous argument. People are so ignorant.

You mentioned the magical and dangerous word

"thoughtfull" - now you know how dangerous that can be, wouldn't want that to break out in a war moungering, materialistic society with debt up to its eyeballs. That stuff is contagious and could ruin a bankers world in no time flat!

Nice point

Big Pharma will have no part cause its grown easily, they cannot monopolize the market they loose. Federal government makes money on pot being illegal also gives many unnecessarily needed jobs their validness. Crooks robbing us blind making unconstitutional laws to gain revenue and break good people.

"The State can only survive as long as a majority

[of the citizenry] is mentally programmed to believe that theft is not wrong if it is called taxation or asset forfeiture or eminent domain, that assault and kidnapping is not wrong if it is called arrest, that mass murder is not wrong if it is called war."
~ Bill St. Clair

“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those that do evil, but because of those that look on and do nothing”
~Albert Einstein

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

You have the right

You have the right to do anything that you want with your own body as long as you don't harm others by doing it. This includes eating anything you want want or taking any drug that you want. However, you are responsible for the consequences of your actions. This right exists regardless of law or government policy, although you may be punished for exercising it.

I also believe that parents should be able to choose how their children are treated medically. If marijuana can help then that is great.

I would not think based on what I saw in the video that marijuana was necessarily the best choice for these situations, but I do not know what else they have tried in the past. I think that bio-nutritional treatment and a carefully controlled diet could probably do much more for these children, but the parents may not know or understand these treatment options and they can be very difficult to implement and maintain. But these are my opinions and the parents have the right to do what they think is best for their children.

If these parents were giving their children SSRI's or Ritalin or any other pharmaceutical which I believe is much more dangerous, then this would not have been newsworthy.

It is unfortunate that much of the discussion seems to be about what is good or bad about marijuana rather than our failed drug policy or parental rights.

@ all who responded to Death Drug

New ideas as well as truth are often attacked by those not ready to consider concepts beyond their current level of understanding. Truth is first ignored, then ridiculed, then attacked, then truth wins. I can give extensive personal experiences as a former marijuana user, as well direct mystical experiences of the Holy Spirit through natural methods, i.e, prayer, meditation, mantra, yoga, one-pointed service, grace, studies, knowledge of Self.

Getting stoned is a dense, dark, and false path.

For spiritual teachings on Marijuana, go to Summit Lighthouse at www.tsl.org, or contact Sacred Mysteries Bookstore in Montana for esoteric teachings on Marijuana, at www.sacredmysteriesbookstore.com

This drug is the perversion of freedom, and the Nephilim plan to dumb down America and our youth through recreational as well as pharma drugs. Please, don't be fooled by them...straight and narrow gait is the way.

Sorry to hear that...

This sacred plant is nothing close to a dark and false path. Perhaps to someone who abuses it, but then abuse of food is a dark path also.

Prayer? really....

Scary mofo.

Jesus Camp is a 2006 documentary directed by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing about a pentecostal summer camp for children who spend their summers learning and practicing their "prophetic gifts" and being taught that they can "take back America for Christ."

*NOTE*
I feel that religion has a LOT to offer, but it also has MANY PITFALLS, a critical mind can glean one from the other; but that is a rare thing these days and as a whole, religion preaches dichotomy and blind faith lead by the pew that is motivated by insidious ideals and it honestly scares me; as a simple review of history will show why.

buy buy buy

I'm open to the argument, not attacking it, I've just seen nothing to support it... and I'm not going to buy from there as my budget is TIGHT right now. Aslan isn't Tash haha

My experience is pretty much "Those guys who made Reefer Madness aren't the only ones who *LIED* about the plant."

I have some knowledge of the Nephilim and

the warning against sorcerers in the Bible. However, where do you find the documentation that the Nephilim created this plant or any other plant? I don't the Nephilim had that power!

Just like poison can be medicine,

medicine can be poison. The trick is for each of us to find our own balance, and we need freedom in our societies and our minds in order to discover this balance.

...This is so amazing to me...

...By all means lets everyone only talk about the marijuana that gets you high...
...PLEASE, PLEASE...REALLY...
...It's so important that folks be allowed to smoke "medicinal" marijuana...
...We must legalize it...alright, whatever...
???...WHAT ABOUT HEMP...???
...You know, the stuff George Washington said should be grown everywhere...?
...The stuff that does not get you high because you do not smoke it, instead, it can actually be used for so many things it is astonishing...
...The stuff that once WAS used, but then our loving government declaired it illegal to grow here...
...Lets not use that as a banner issue to generate some real interest...
...no...continue to ignore the REAL important issue...HEMP...and by all means lets just talk about the stuff you smoke to get you high...hahahaha...
...Pathetic...it really is...
...and the parents better look at what they feed him...that looked like a mountain dew bottle in front of him, no wonder he's the way he is...
...EVERYONE better wake the FK up and look at what they are eating and drinking...yea, it really is that simple...
...Don't believe me, just keep drinking soda instead of water, and eating processed non-organic foods...GMO is best actually, oh, and the few times you do actually drink water, make sure it has plenty of flouride in it, that stuff is really good for you too...hahahaha
...enjoy your idiocy...just keep away from me...
