I am writing to express my most sincere and heartfelt apology. I am very sorry that I might have added to your suffering, caused you pain, failed to help you. I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t know that I was actually hurting you and doing something that wouldn’t truly help or cure you. I was a nurse following doctors orders and I figured those people knew what they were doing when they 1) injected intrathecal chemotherapy into your child’s spinal fluid 2) removed both of your breasts because of a cancerous lump of tissue 3) performed a brain biopsy for a brain tumor which led to swelling and death of your loved one 4) assisted in placing 100 Radioactive seeds into your husband’s prostate gland 5) gave “medicine” to a woman with Crohns disease that actually caused her to develop cancer 6) gave Phenobarbital to a child with Epilepsy even though I knew it was causing mental problems. I AM SORRY THAT I HELPED WITH ALL SIX OF THOSE PROCEDURES. Please understand, that is a list of only six procedures that I personally helped with – I “helped” my doctors to do many other things that I thought was right at the time, that I thought would help those people, but now, I am sorry that I did any of it and would not do it again.
Have you ever had to say that?” I’m sorry, I wont do it again” You see, I now must say that I know better. After years of studying the science within the cannabis plant, I now know that a possible curative agent was rarely even tried and the scientific community knew it all along. I have also come to the conclusion that they have not allowed cannabis to be used as medicine because it could turn their industry upside down and eliminate more than 50% of their profits, perhaps more. Certain Pharmaceutical companies might utterly collapse if people were to realize that they could grow many types of medicine and possibly even a cure for cancer in their own back yard. That is essentially what I am saying, but I am not the only one. If you are reading this and think I am completely wrong, I must ask you to search the internet for 6630507.
The original assignee of that patent is the United States Government. How can that be? Our government institutions like the FDA, DEA and the NIDA currently state that cannabis is a Schedule 1 drug with no known medicinal properties yet it holds a patent for cannabis to be used as medicine. It only makes sense if you look deeper and see why they might have done it – to protect certain industries and corporations over the welfare of us, the American people.
Lots of folks are going to tell me that cannabis can’t cure cancer. I believe they are wrong and it is our own government that has done everything in it’s power to keep that truth from us (Schedule 1 blocks research). Have you honestly examined why our own government would attempt to block legitimate scientific research of a plant? When I was growing up I remember watching a television commercial that went like this – “We must protect our environment because one day many new medicines might be discovered in our Rainforests”. It gave me hope that scientists were working to discover cures for diseases like cancer. Now I have to wonder if everyone leading our current “Medical System” has known better for years. They have been reluctant to change standard medical practices toward a natural remedy because it will damage their incomes.
Maya Angelou once said “Do the best you can until you know better, but when you know better, do better”. Now that I know better, I find that I could not in good conscience return to the hospital and assist with many of the things I used to do. Now, “I know better” and writing this Blog is my way of trying to do better. I want to educate patients to a possible alternative to assist in restoring their health. The use of cannabis may even be helpful in helping to maintain health. You are reading this, so you obviously have the entire Internet at your disposal. Today, I am happy to report that many people “know better”. Please learn for yourself, cannabis is medicine.
Thank you, and again I must say I am sorry that I didn’t know better. What I’ve learned about cannabis is not taught in Nursing schools or even Medical schools. When our own government tries to block us from knowledge that they already have patented, we must educate ourselves and each other and fight to “do better”. Please consider the following government patents as evidence that our government has “known better” for quite some time…
