The War on
Drugs, you see, is actually a war of Big Pharma to
control health care by eliminating any competition.

Feds raided numerous Montana businesses involved with medical marijuana, seizing
millions of dollars in bank accounts involved with this new industry in Montana.
You can read about that at "Constitutional
Rights Under Siege".
Republicans in the Montana legislature are now pushing through a bill to overturn medical marijuana laws. Rep. Ellie Hill, D-Missoula, criticized the bill for overturning the public vote for medical marijuana. I think its absolute hubris to ignore the will of voters of Montana, she said.
Indeed the entire health care system has been hijacked by the same big money of Big Pharma and the medical-industrial complex which lobbies both Republicans and Democrats. Nationally, it is one more symptom of a sick economic system which bails out Wall Street at the expense of Main Street. Politicians take a lot of money from Wall Street to get re-elected, and they rarely bite the hand that feeds them, rubber-stamping much of the health care reform legislation that is written by Big Pharma lobbies.

has moved very far from
high purpose of discovering and producing useful new drugs. Now primarily a
marketing machine to sell drugs of dubious benefit,
uses its wealth and power to co-opt every institution that might stand in its
way, including the US Congress, the FDA, academic medical centers, and the
medical profession itself."

marijuana issue is just the canary in the coal mine. If it dies, being denied
the public's pure intention for health freedom, what is there of freedom of
choice for building health in one's own body?
Think about it, if we don't have a choice to use natural remedies for our own bodies, we are slave to a sick system of government which fronts for a sick health care system that mandates insurance and numerous government subsidies for toxic chemical drugs for whatever ails you. Many synthetic drugs have genetic mutational effects as well as serious carcinogenic consequences for the health of vital organs in the body.
This self-perpetuating disease care system is rather ingenious in a nefarious way. Drug-side effects are treated with other drugs with more side-effects which are treated by other drugs until many seniors are walking pharmacies with half a dozen prescriptions drugging them out of any semblance of health. That's very profitable for Big Pharma but it's killing more than 100,000 American annually with prescription drugs. That's the common conservative number often quoted by drug-pushing media conglomerates, but the real number is closer to a quarter-million Americans dying yearly from the 'ethical' drug cartels.
Thanks to this sick health care system, many Americans are so sick and tired of being sick and tired that they are too sick and tired to realize they are victims of the system. They actually believe that drugs build health when they are only treating symptoms of disease, and there's a huge difference. The 'BS' (Belief System) -- that drugs build health -- is the Big Lie which is so BIG and so bold and so often told on the boob-tube that people believe it!

patent, own and profit from nature, so they make something unnatural and call it
'good'... 'miracle drugs'... so you feel better in the short term while toxic
drug settlement in your tissues compounds degenerative disease in the long
term. It's a plot out hell with such pervasive 'BS' that we call this sick
disease care system 'health care'. And everyone wants 'health care'... like
we want endless terror war for peace. DUH!
Such fork-tongued, two-faced deception may serve the pound of treatment worth 16 x's an ounce of prevention, but it doesn't serve common sense.
And so it is with Republicans in the Montana legislature who exude moral indignation that the public voted for something the Fed's consider illegal... excusing themselves from common sense by saying that the mucky mucks in foggy bottom know better! Big DUH! It's like they are saying. "How dare we think for ourselves and choose freedom from the sick medical-industrial complex?"
Call me a medical heretic, but after developing three holistic healing centers over 20 years, I still know the common sense value of building health as the best way to remedy disease. If you don't believe me, watch this video: "The Most Astonishing Health Disaster of the 20th Century."
Rather that reforming the Medical Marijuana law in Montana to responsibly serve the public in a more conscientious way, the Montana legislature is considering a repeal of the health freedom which the people of Montana voted for. One Republican stated on Montana PBS radio the other morning that politicians should not be making medical decisions... as if he didn't have a brain to watch the 'Science of Cannabis' and conscientiously represent that science with legislation that supports it.
It's called, "My mind is made up. Don't challenge me with the science on the issue". Such lack of love is actually the cause of all contemporary evils; quick to judge, easy to anger, slow to understand... prejudice, fear and ignorance go hand-in-hand.
Granted, there are a lot of stiff-necked senior politicians who saw the government propaganda film 'Reefer Madness' a long time ago, and like a child with PTSD from false-flag terror, they have their mind made up that this herb is the devil's drug. So like children, they turn to 'father government' and Big Pharma collusion with Big Daddy for salvation. So much for State Rights... or sovereign individual rights for that matter.
There's no real civic responsibility for such immature adults. They may speak with high-sounding words but they are ethical infants, saying, "How dare we reject the wisdom of a sick health care system which puts profit for drug companies above a healing herb we can grow for free in our back yards?
Cannabis is a natural herb. It's not a drug. The problem is that it works better than drugs for many health conditions. And it has a pleasant side-effect of causing 'euphoria' whereby sick people feel better.

The War on Drugs, you see, is actually the war of Big Pharma to control health care.
The real danger of radiation is now like a silent terror alarm going off against an invisible domestic enemy. But the danger is real, even though ignored by the 'business-as-usual' corporate media. The right to alarm the public -- to mobilize their hearts and minds -- seems to be reserved by a government which used terror to rally public support for endless war following 9-11. It used the terror of non-existent "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq to expand the Middle East war for Israel and Big Oil. It used the terror of economic collapse to bailout the Fed banksters who make a killing creating debt with endless wars. But this terror trumps them all, and even the power elite are scared shiftless.
It may seem cynical to consider official terror-based propaganda as a ploy to exploit the physical and human resources of humanity, but the terror of this health crisis will not bolster the fortunes of Wall Street and health care reform for the growth and benefit of the medical-industrial complex which looks at cancer treatment as the golden calf. This radiation danger opens a whole new can of worms.
People take their health for granted until they lose it, and with the terror of cancer, they'll pay just about anything to get it back, typically losing their life savings on 'promising new treatments' before they lose their lives. The problem is that conventional cancer treatment with toxic chemo has the nasty side-effect of wiping out the immune system, your first line of defense against radiation.
Common sense would say that if we're going to begin healing the sick health care system, we need to take the profit out of sickness and put some profit back into natural healing practices. What we call 'health care' is 97.5% disease care, and there are too many people making a killing off disease, literally, and too few people building our health holistically.
Common sense would also say that we've got bigger fish to fry than regulating marijuana out of availability. The radiation from Fukushima blanketing America is a full-blown assault on our immune systems. If I had a 'grow house', I'd be growing all my own vegetables and herbs for optimal health.
Common sense may be uncommon, but it sure beats the alternative.
