  1. Ok lil off topic but couldn’t some one sue the federal government an make them at least reschedule cannabis cause the United States has a patent on the second psychoactive molecule in cannabis CBD an it states it is good for cancer and seizures. So wouldn’t that alone mean they are contradicting what they claim on it having zero medical uses. Shouldn’t that be took to the Supreme Court an have them to at the very least knock it down to schedule 2 category.

  2. Here’s a little story to fire you up. I work with sick patients on a daily basis. A patient of mine on this particular day had shared her recent diagnosis of stage 4 terminal cancer. I have worked with this patient for a couple of years and we have had talks about the benefits of medicinal marijuana in the past, which she had used. Upon her most recent diagnosis she was given 2 years to live. I could tell she was heavily medicated with opioids, she confirmed. With recent studies showing the combination of medical marijuana and opioids helping reduce the amount of opioids needed I had asked if she was still supplementing. To my utter astonishment she told me that her pain doctor was drug testing her and threatened to discontinue her opioids if she tested positive for foreign drugs. WTF is going on! She is literally going to die within a couple of years yet the only drugs she is permitted to take is the pharmaceutical heroin her doctor is pushing. Where is the empathy?humanity?What happened to doing the right thing? This truly broke my heart and infuriated me at the same time. This is only one instance of many I’ve encountered over 15 years of working in this field. I feel OUR time is coming and because of shows like yours we can have open, honest and intelligent conversations that give the truth about the benefits of this beautiful flower.

  3. FACT,,,, I QUIT SMOKING TOBACCO,, IN 1996,,COLD TURKEY,, WHICH IS JUST AS ADDICTIVE,IN ALASKA WHERE CANNABIS IS LEGAL, AND IT WILL BE 21 YEARS THIS AUG, AND IT HELPED ME GET OFF THE OPIATES, AFTER I LITERALLY SHATTERED MY RIGHT FEMUR.. YOU CAN NOT TELL ME,,IT DOES NOT DO,,JUST THAT,, PERIOD.

  4. This is what we need seeing more of. We have talking points but we want to see the studies…. I don't need it to believe but those that talk all the shit against cannabis sure do!. I'm glad to have studies done it will only prove us more and more right about it. Great video Brandon. I shared this one… I usually do but this one for sure
