“On 01-12-17 the National Academy of Sciences released a comprehensive review of research on marijuana and concluded that marijuana does indeed have medical value.
The review concluded: “One of the therapeutic uses of cannabis and cannabinoids is to treat chronic pain in adults. The committee found evidence to support that patients who were treated with cannabis or cannabinoids were more likely to experience a significant reduction in pain symptoms. For adults with multiple sclerosis-related muscle spasms, there was substantial evidence that short-term use of certain “oral cannabinoids”—man-made, cannabinoid-based medications that are orally ingested—improved their reported symptoms. Furthermore, in adults with chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, there was conclusive evidence that certain oral cannabinoids were effective in preventing and treating those ailments.”
This is not the first time that the scientific community has made claims about marijuana as medicine.”

Pesticides & Cannabis Consumer Product Safety
A cautionary tale: a cannabis consumer contacted me saying a gram of dab he purchased at 502 recreational pot store in Spokane, WA tasted like “burnt plastic”. He was very curious about what he was ingesting. I suggested he take sample to Trace Analytics for pesticide screening.
The results were shocking. This particular product tested positive for Metalaxyl, a state approved fungicide -however, 200ppb is the “Upper Level of Quantification” (considered acceptable trace amount) but this sample came in at a whopping 94,786ppb! I talked with the grower/processor and they were very cooperative BUT my warning to Medical Marijuana Patients – read the labels, ask about pesticide testing.

No one should be sucking up pesticides or fungicides. Most (good) growers are paying attention and are working to produce safe, clean medical-grade cannabis products.

An 8-month old boy was diagnosed with a massive, centrally-located, inoperable brain tumor. His father did extensive research and started giving the baby daily doses of 3.8% CBD tincture on his pacifier. Chemotherapy, radiation and surgery had all been recommended by oncologists but after 4 months the brain tumor was gone. At 8 months of CBD therapy the brain structure had returned to normal.
Watch this video Dr. William Courtney who treated him. The imaging of the tumor as it shrank is tangible documentation that brain tumors can be successfully treated by Cannabinoid therapy. (Ed. note: no one is more surprised by the result than Dr. Courtney himself.) Watch video
Clean, Safe Cannabis: PESTICIDES ARE NOT THE SOLUTION
By Darlene Brice, Cannabis Consumer Research
Anyone who has ever grown marijuana knows that bugs can kill or damage an entire crop. In a matter of days mold, different types of mites, thrips, fungus gnats, aphids, and other nasty buggers can wreak havoc in the entire garden causing heavy financial loss.
The WA State Liquor & Cannabis Board approved over 200 different pesticides growers can use to keep the bugs at bay. Big problem. Random sampling of cannabis sold in retail stores are testing positive for pesticide residue. Some industry insiders estimate that possibly up to 70% of the pot legally sold in stores have some level of pesticide contamination.
Adopt a Felon
We are continuing the project activist and master grower David Van Scyoc and we were working on when he died suddenly. He was a felon and we decided that we need to help people caught up in the War on Drugs to get their records expunged of marijuana-related felonies. Read More Are you a felon looking to get your felonies off your records? Maybe we can help. Read More
Mr. Miracle Man “David Van Scycoc” is one of those souls you know you will never cross again. When he passed last year, I could only think of myself. How much I miss him, how much he was teaching me, how many in-siders he introduced me to. Poof! He was gone and I have mourned him as a Brother. We worked so hard to get to this point. He was a soul I will never cross again. I thought he was handsome and beautiful and kinder than anyone I know. Good Travels, Dear David.

Keep the Kettle Falls Five Free!!
Update: The Federal trial of the Kettle Falls 5 resulted in a guilty verdict for “manufacture of a controlled substance”. This was expected as the prosecutor had evidence the Kettle Falls 5 were growing marijuana on their own property for medical purposes under WA state Medical Marijuana statutes. The Feds failed to convict them of conspiracy, intent to distribute and weapons charges which have a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years in Federal prison. Not guilty! This is a win for all Americans who find themselves in the Federal justice system for growing plants. Thank you Kettle Falls 5 for making legal precedence.

Grammie’s a Pothead
by Cheri Sicard, Hightimes.com
“Despite the stereotype of marijuana users as burned-out teens munching on Doritos, today, the fastest growing demographic of cannabis users is actually baby boomers and senior citizens. This increase of use is for good reason—cannabis has proven itself to be a powerful weapon against the ravages of age.
Unfortunately, not all of us were born with Fulla Nayak’s incredible genes. According to HighTimes.com reporter, Cheri Sicard, we can learn a lesson from her habitual cannabis use. Following is Sicard’s list of compelling reasons why you, your parents and your grandparents should consider adding cannabis to a healthy routine of good diet and exercise.

Medical Marijuana patients need your attention and support in WA state. WA has no legally approved Medicinal Cannabis. Rick Simpson’s Oil is now illegal and unavailable.
It is shameful that the Medicine (Charlotte’s Cure, etc) is available in other states but not in WA because of petty. absurd laws and regulations, backward politics, SB 5052 and the continuing War on Drugs.

Where Will the $$ Go?
” In Washington state, 80% of the taxes that come in from sale of cannabis is earmarked for prevention, treatment, research and evaluation of the implementation of I-502. Colorado, on the other hand, has targeted the first $40 million in tax revenue for school construction.” Maria L. LaGanga
