Cancer the Forbidden Cures – Full Documentary
In the last 100 years dozens of doctors, scientists and researchers have come up with the most diverse, apparently effective solutions against cancer, but none of these was ever taken into serious consideration by official medicine. Most of them were in fact rejected out-front, even though healings were claimed in the thousands, their proposers often being labeled as charlatans, ostracized by the medical community and ultimately forced to leave the country. At the same time more than 20,000 people die of cancer every day, without official medicine being able to offer a true sense of hope to those affected by it. Why?
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced.

San Diego Union Tribune, 20 Oct 2014 - Regarding "Prop. 47: Right, right, right - wrong" (Oct. 16): I am a certified chemical dependency counselor working with this population for more than 20 years. Here's the truth: Treatment is more cost-effective than prison. Prop 47 will change sentences for only the lowest-level drug and property offense […]
San Diego Union Tribune, 19 Oct 2014 - Once again, we have the San Diego Unified School District police sending a negative message ("Drug-sniffing dog has increased presence on campuses," Oct. 8) to the students of our educational institutions: A police officer walking the halls of education with a German shepherd to detect illegal drugs. What coul […]
Chico Enterprise-Record, 19 Oct 2014 - Anything that helps move the ball down the field toward the goal of total re-legalization of cannabis will have my vote - and in this case that means voting no on A and yes on B. As our previous experiences with drunk waterfowl and exploding stills clearly taught, our ills will not depart until cannabis prohibition is s […]
Chico Enterprise-Record, 19 Oct 2014 - Addressing two recent letters, it appears Garry Cooper must have smoked a few bowls before looking into his crystal ball in predicting outrageous windfalls Butte County will reap from pot profiteering. What a joke. Growers predicted the same wealth for Colorado and Washington. Are they seeing the wealth in taxes pouring […]

Chico Enterprise-Record, 17 Oct 2014 - Your editorial on Sept. 20 was right on target, the supporters of Measure B are being deceiful with their ads. Measure A is about limiting large commercial marijuana farms that have sprouted up all over Butte County. Yes on Measure A will still allow granny to grow a few plants for her own medicinal use as under Proposi […]
Sacramento News & Review, 16 Oct 2014 - Also, What's Up With Law Enforcement Attacking Grows in Mendocino? My primary doctor told me that marijuana would probably relieve my peripheral neuropathy pain. I looked at all the ads in the SN&R issue. Problem is that I can't tell who is the most reputable doctor I should go to for an evaluation. C […]
The Chico News & Review, 16 Oct 2014 - I agree that Measure A is good and Measure B is bad. Honestly, everyone I know would be fine if the pot grows were kept in check, neighborhoods restored to peace and the criminal trafficking ceased. No one that I know cares if you party responsibly, or use it medically-we just don't want Butte County to become […]
The Chico News & Review, 16 Oct 2014 - Re "Down on Measure B" (Letters, by Jeanne Cecchi and Nancy Roybal, Oct. 9): In response to your last two letters from Measure B opponents, these women own wineries. How did they clear land for the grapes? Do they not water them? Do they not know that fermenting fruit is a putrid smell or the fact grapes a […]
