thoughtful and and (unfortunately) your correct thoughts on the
is all about. Freedom of self-medication and the right to use a plant that
was put here for us by God.
"governing body" of individuals can dictate to the public at large exactly what
they can eat, what medicines they may consume (or NOT consume – "vaccinations"
for example) makes it a sad time on earth for all of us.
continue to research what is going on with this plant and with our "governing"
of the people and remain interested in study of this fight for our freedom

AMSubject: Medical Marijuana Story
Greetings, I was reading your
article in the Leo. The sad state of affairs is that Marijuana
whether medical or not could prevent someone from being placed on a transplant
list for donated organs. In a recent newpaper (CJ) it presented a story
of a man who was denied a
liver transplant because of his medical marijuana use. In many persons
that use marijuana to encourage appetite and nutrition in
chronic illness, the person actually is able to maintain weight and
prevent cachexia. However, the people that approve the procedures within
hospitals to transplant organs still consider this an illegal drug despite how
it is prescribed or used. People do not know that this will affect their
chances for a new life when they are being placed on the transplant list and test positive for
this drug. It can be a reason for denial of an organ transplant.
It is so sad that one intervention that helps the person to live longer with
their disease also prevents their future survival. Our world has a
double standard and no one
will change that…
