Cannabis (Marijuana) is one of the most powerful plants on the planet. Personally, I am a pro-cannabis Christian. For some, the subject of Christians and Cannabis will be a sensitive one, and as with most things worth discussing, one blog post is not sufficient to encompass all ideas and aspects of a position on a topic, but it’s a start. This is the first of many articles and blog posts on GrowTheHeckUp that will explore the benefits, dangers, drawbacks, pros and cons of Cannabis (Marijuana) use vs. the pharmaceutical drugs most often prescribed for comparable ailments.
“If you have a loved one that’s [sic] suffering and dying and even if there is a law in place, as far as I’m concerned, I would grow the plants, bring them to full growth, and then I would produce the oil and save their life, because the effectiveness of this medication is just beyond belief” -Rick Simpson, Cannabis Activist”
Rick Simpson is a medical marijuana activist who has been providing people with information about the healing powers of cannabis oil medications for more than a decade. Rick cured himself of a metastatic skin cancer back in 2003. Since then, he has devoted his life to spreading the truth about cannabis oil. Despite his progressive work with cancer patients, Rick Simpson has met an absurd amount of opposition from Canadian authorities, as well as pharmaceutical companies, government/health agencies, and UN offices, despite his claims to have successfully treated over 5,000 patients (free of charge). He believes that it is common to have all types of cancer and diseases cured with the use of high quality cannabis oil as the main method of treatment.
Rick has reported treating patients with all types of conditions including, but not limited to, cancer, AIDS / HIV, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, leukemia, Crohn’s disease, depression, osteoporosis, psoriasis, insomnia, glaucoma, asthma, burns, migraines, regulation of body weight, chronic pain, and mutated cells (polyps, warts, tumors).
