Howdy folks!

It’s been a while- but you’ll be getting a double dose this month to make up for a missed month of information. To get started- we have major good news and major bad news. The good first- Rick Simpson, who should win the nobel prize, has released his book telling the story of the Phoenix Tears. You can get all 176 pages for $9.99 at his website– and I strongly recommend that if you are reading this newsletter you read Rick Simpson’s book. In it, he describes in intricate detail, with suprisingly excellent writing, the entire journey he has been on, including the proper process for making the cannabis oil. A lot of patients stories are described as well, their diseases, and experience on the oil. This is all useful information you may not be able to find online, and certainly not all in one place. I have read the book in its entirety, and not only was it a great Cannabis book, it is a great Human evolution story, told with honor, integrity, and spitting fire where it needs to be spat. It is a phenomenal tale- you will be shocked and amazed at what actually took place during Rick’s rise to fame. All for re-realeasing a panacea, a cure all- the Phoenix tears.

To Rick- you are a true hero of mine for the courage you have shown in releasing such information. I am thankful I came across it, and used it with great success to help those in need. I wish you the best and ultimate success through the rest of your long life, and I understand now the reasons you may not return to your home country of Canada. I still hope you get to see your Mom and those you want to see in that region. I thank you again, on behalf of all those I have treated and myself and my family, for what you have done, are doing, and I know will do. Thank you- is all I can say.

And now for the bad news… My Uncle, and the star patient in my film Vitamin Cannabis, has been arrested by the Federal Government in his homestate, a legal medical state where my uncle was a registered patient. The worst part, is the last communication I have from him was about how he had made the cannabis oil, cured a friend of brain cancer with a 60 gram reset, had the medical proof, and was about to go public with it. That “going public with it” part never happened….

To my Uncle- I’m so sorry this has happened. I know you were trying so hard to do what was morally correct, and success in curing loved ones meant the powers that be had to do something to stop you. Sooner rather than later. You alone were that much of a threat to them. Your courage in allowing me to tell your story in my film, has already helped others make the same leap of faith you did when you first told me you had cancer, and I first told you about the Phoenix Tears, and you decided to take 60 grams and extend your life.I am thankful for you in my life- and the lessons you taught me about good living and strength in family. I have nothing but love for you- and I wish you all the positive energy in the world to see you through this. I know God is there too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart- please know how sorry I am. God bless you Uncle.

It feels tough to follow that with any kind of news- but I have to go on- and to lighten the mood- did anyone see the story on the study that said CT Scans could be causing 2% of the cancers world wide? Oh wait- that wasn’t positive- but it is true. Let me try again…

Did anyone see the story of the guy busted in Vermont for Cannabis possession, who then took his farm tractor to the police station that busted him and ran over 7 of their cars with his steel beast?? The best part is, two of the officers had just finished washing their cars by hand before the tractor attacked. The next best part? The 7 cops in the station had to chase the tractor on foot, because all their cars were just destroyed. They failed to aprehend the man in the tractor, and another county’s deputies (who presumably still had cars) caught up with the man and arrested him for multiple felonies.

In a non related story that I so badly wish was related- Colorado’s Pot Police, the Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division ( MMED) of the Colorado Division of Revenue, spent $70,000 a piece on 7 totally tricked out black S.U.V.’s, that apparently were designed to chase potheads across dirt roads at 60 mph. They carry advanced everything, upgraded everything, and now that Colorado’s pot boom (at least for the dispensaries, the black market is now flourishing) is over and the tax dollars have dried up, the MMED doesn’t even have enough employees left to need the 7 S.U.V.’s, so they are loaning them out to other government agencies. The MMED had over $7 million dollars at one point, and now they are so broke they won’t even authorize new employees for the pot shops that do still exist, so a hiring freeze is now in place because you can’t hire new employees until the MMED approves them, and they won’t do that again until March of 2013 due to “budgetary issues.” So you can’t get a job in the pot shops unless you have already been approved. Bullshit. Corrupt Bullshit. I really wish the Tractor man would have taken on the MMED’s 7 S.U.V.’s they blew their taxpayer money on, but alas, no such luck. Hey MMED, we could probably make another $7 mil for you to mindlessly blow on stupid shit if we set up your S.U.V.’s at the Denver Coliseum and let Tractor Man run them over. Just a thought…

In Oil related news, we have helped make some oil with a high CBD strain of weed specifically designed for CBD content, and test results just came back at 40% CBD, which is very good, as our original oil had around 3% CBD and 29% THC (also less than 1% CBN). In theory, a blend of CBD and THC would be good for certain cancers, but in reading Rick Simpson’s book, he isn’t quite sold on CBD for internal ingestion, which is our primary focus. From my experience, the high THC has worked all the magic that needs to be worked in almost every case, but it does make patients have THC “trips” occasionally. We will experiment with the high CBD oil (though there is very little of it at present) and report back in newsletters if possible. We would also like to encourage anyone out there doing CBD internal ingestion work to contact us with any information, we would love to hear from you!

Additionally, rumors of a Tommy Chong documentary on the Phoenix Tears in Colorado proved to be false, but we wish him the best in his treatment. We also know there are many more documentaries on the oil being made in Colorado and elsewhere. We wish all these film teams the best of luck in their quest to document the truth behind the healing magic of the oil- and we look forward to seeing your films!

More Colorado news- An 87 Year old man was recently busted for growing 400 plus pot plants (I’m sure he would say 420), that he was licensed to grow according to state constitutional law- meaning he had the “Red Card” permits and was making oil and edibles for people, which requires more plants. The cops left him with some of his plants- but I just want to say that this man should not be charged with anything- he should be put in the book of world records- for coolest grandpa. He should not face jail time, he should be given a medal for being so old and growing so much damn pot. His plants were huge! There’s no way a jury of 12 is gonna convict this guy of his supposed crime- so it amounts to the cops robbing him and leaving him struggling to fulfill patients needs. It’s again- Bullshit. Corrupt Bullshit.

On one more Colorado corrupt Bullshit note- letters went out to 10 more dispensaries in the state ordering them to close because they are within 1000 feet of schools or day-cares. 10 places closing or relocating at the cost of a few stamps to the federal agent that sent them out. Meanwhile, and I could not make this up- the Denver City council revises it’s liquor code so that now you can open a bar and serve alcohol right next to a school. I kid you not. The limit used to be 500 feet, but that was just too inconvenient to drinkers and developers. I’m not saying I care if my kids school is next to a bar (I probably would) but it’s amazing to see the slanted view of things. Cannabis curing stations closing, while poison flows freely anywhere it wants.

We were also thrilled to hear the recent news of a genuine “Jury Nullification” in New Hampshire for a Rastafarian man found growing Cannabis plants on his property for sacramental use. For those of you unfamiliar with Jury Nullification, it basically allows a jury member to decide that the prosecutor has presented his case and it seems to be correct, but if he or she disagrees with the punishment the accused would receive if a guilty verdict is entered, the jury member can nullify the trial and find the defendant not guilty. The defendant then cannot be retried due to double jeopardy. I bring this up because of this little known fact: Jury Nullification, done by the hundreds, kept many good bootleggers out of jail in the waning days of prohibition. When juries refused to convict their friends and neighbors for boozing or making booze, the federal government knew the battle was over and moved to correct the problem, thus ending prohibition. The government has also kept Jury Nullification a secret ever since then, and we were glad to see it brought back for Cannabis as a sacred plant, in the state of New Hampshire. Way to Go NH!! If all of us register to vote (which makes you eligible for jury duty) and we then show up to jury duty, get selected, and happen to pull a drug case, in theory you could nullify the whole trial by forcing a not guilty verdict, and- done by the hundreds- prosecutors would stop prosecuting certain drug cases, and the federal government would be forced to change the laws or look really stupid as everyone is breaking the laws with no penalty or enforcement. It worked once before, it could work again…

Other efforts to legalize marijuana continue in Colorado. On our ballot in November is Amendment 64, which would basically set up Colorado’s medical marijuana system, including aspects of HB 1284 (which was written by law enforcement agents), into Colorado’s state constitution. It has received a wave of negative attacks from the anti-pot side (95% funded by a Republican Drug Treatment Facility operator), including the oft used link from marijuana to Heroin use as a gateway drug, which has proven false or we would have heroin shops here in Denver. The critics have also cited drug court influenced statistics that more teens seek drug addiction treatment for pot than any other drug, which is a true stat, but only because teens busted for a couple joints at a party are offered drug treatment and a clean record (Read: Can still get federal college loans) as a plea deal, versus fighting the charges and possibly ending up with a criminal record ( Read: No Student Loan money for you). No wonder so many young people caught with an 1/8 of weed or a pipe choose Bullshit drug addiction treatment instead of the criminal record part, so the numbers are skewed one way to say the least. Another tactic included the republicans changing the Colorado Voter guide ( a book that gets sent to every Colorado voter that highlights the pros and cons of each issue on the ballot) to have 366 words against the legalization amendment, to only 208 for it. The messed up part is, the words were even initially, until someone in government intervened to tip the hat in the favor of the prohibitionists. Underhanded and seedy- that’s pot politics in the place where Rocky Mountain High is our state song.

Last but not least, I will be speaking at an event in Colorado Springs on October 26th sponsored by the THC ministry. I believe Dr. Bob Melamede may be there, and his film, along with a video from me, will be shown. I hope to have our instructional video called “Vitamin Cannabis: How to Make the Cure” finished by then as we continue to get countless requests for help in making the oil, fixing the oil, etc.. I am a huge fan of the poster that was put together for this event- that boldly states “CANNABIS CURES CANCER.”

Damn right it does. I’m proud to again scream it from this electronic mountaintop. Won’t you join me in making some phoenix tears, using it, and feeling better? I hope you do. :-)

God bless you all- Capn Cannabis- September 2012 cannabischorus@gmail.com
