RE: Amherst, Nova Scotia - March 17, 2008AMHERST - Rickey Logan Simpson has twice been convicted of drug charges and has twice been a free man the same day as his sentencing.
To: Mr. Cacchione,
On Thursday August 14, 2003 at approximately 4:10pm, the power grid blew in Toronto as it is part of the Eastern Seaboard. For the first time in a long time, there was absolutely no reliance on Big Brother for a 24 hour period. For the first time in a 2 year period of living in Toronto, I met my neighbors. We met & barbequed all our spoiling meat, even drank wine together. It was a warm, wonderful night that anyone could look up into the sky to see the stars. For the first time in Toronto, we could see the stars!
I wish I could say the same thing for Rick Simpson’s situation. How can big brother play such a destructive role in the lives of Canadians? BIG BROTHER: DO NO HARM! The choices that are being made in Canadians’ names are atrocious. The human condition is being used for all the wrong reasons within this insidious mind control unit: the government.
I really don’t understand why the government has declared war on a plant. There have been other marijuana judgments in various parts of Canada that have challenged the status quo and been vindicated for meaningless charge of having a herb in their possession. Why is it so difficult for our Establishment to vindicate a plant's ability to save a life? This is insanity, and the red-neck janitors are holding executive office at the moment. Please excuse them, looks like the janitors need a cigarette break. Please don’t give them any hemp oil to cure their eventual lung cancer, nor any of their family members who may also have a cigarette habit.
This is all people want: informed choice. Any tangible learning process of the natural world SUSTAINS the natural world. Canada is unfortunately moving into a time period of tyranny. What are you going to tell your generations when the whole world turns into the police state you are helping to create?
Please allow me to explain this letter as it hasn't been sent yet. After viewing the film Cannabis Cures Cancer - "Run From The Cure" The Rick Simpson Story
@http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-7331006790306000271&ei=ezGZSJ-qFoWE4QKTjL0p&q=Rick+Simpson+Story&hl=en, I have yet another ideal to strive for. This movie has me convinced that something bigger than our Government is running things around here. I realize the antagonists are a Masonic group that like the colours red & blue on every coat of arms, such as the Government (liberal red & conservative blues), the Royal Canadian Legion, and the RCMP. The judge is just a pawn in the game of life it seems.
The problem for marijuana is the ignorance of the benefits of the plant. There has been lots of proven research as to the validity of the the health benefits. Please allow me to report scientific information regarding the benefits:
Professor Xia Zhang, and his neuropsychiatry research unit team at the University of Saskatchewan, in 2005, found that rats treated with HU-210, a potent synthetic cannabinoid, on a regular basis showed neurogenesis - the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus. The effect is the opposite of most legal and illicit drugs such as alcohol, nicotine, heroin, and cocaine. "Most 'drugs of abuse' suppress neurogenesis," Zhang says. "Only cannabis promotes neurogenesis." As a medicine, the plant is used to ease pain in multiple sclerosis patients, combat nausea in cancer patients, and stimulate appetite in people afflicted with AIDS. It has also been used to treat epilepsy and stroke.
June 18-20, 1999 Acapulco, Mexico. Professor Manuel Guzmán’s research teams at Complutense University and Autonoma University in Madrid, Spain found that cannabis’ active ingredient, THC, killed tumor cells in advanced cases of glicoma, a quick-killing cancer for which there is currently no effective treatment. Guzman says that the experiment, published in the March 2000 issue of Nature Medicine, tested THC at very low doses and at a late stage. He predicts that THC should work better if given earlier. Guzman's team says, “the drug …provoked a death spiral in cancer cells.” He injected the active cannabinoid compounds directly into the brain cancers after laboratory studies showed that THC killed glioma cells while leaving normal brain cells unharmed.
The plight of Rick Simpson has been an uphill battle. Mr. Simpson has developed an actual hemp oil that when ingested, has cured cancer. He has been jailed repeatedly for administering a medicine that contains THC. This movie gives testimonials regarding the state of the Cancer Establishment from the Rebels' point of view. Please watch this movie, and I'll discuss with myself if I should send this damned letter.
