Michael Komorn Posted May 17, 2011 Report Share Posted May 17, 2011 Marijuana: The Illegal Herb That Fights Cancer By Joseph Mercola, LewRockwell.com Medical marijuana is now a $1.7-billion market in the U.S. This means thatsales of medical marijuana rival the annual revenue generated by Viagra, a$1.9-billion business. What’s more, the medical marijuana market is expected to nearly double inthe next five years, and that’s just in the 15 U.S. states where the drug islegal. If another 20 states pass medical marijuana laws, which projections showis possible, the market could grow to $8.9 billion by 2016. According to MSNBC: “The cannabis industry as a whole – including the underground blackmarket and medical gray market – generates anywhere from $18 billion to $35.8billion a year.” In the video below, “Run From the Cure – the Rick Simpson Story,” it’ssuggested that pharmaceutical companies and big business may be with holding apotential cancer cure – hemp oil – from the public inthe interest of personalprofit. “…perfectly balanced 1:3 ratio of naturally-occurring omega-3 andomega-6 essential fatty acids…unlike other seeds and nutritional oils, such asflaxand fish fish oil, hemp seeds also contain super omega-3 stearidonic acidand super omega-6-gamma-linolenic acid in nutritionally relevant amounts thathelp to reduce inflammation and improve mental functioning, as well as make upfor potentially impaired fatty acid metabolism.” They also noted that the reason why industrial hemp cannot be grown in theUnited States is because the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) refuses toacknowledge that hemp is not the same as marijuana. As TreeHugger reported: “The United States is the only industrialized nation where growingindustrial hemp is illegal. And because of that we’re missing out on hugeeconomic opportunity… Apparently even though Canadian cops can tell the difference betweenhigh-THC cannabis plants (marijuana) and low-THC plants (industrial hemp), theUS DEA can’t be bothered.” Michael A.
