My History Making Vote, How I first met Dr. Bob, and an amazing event in Colorado Springs

Howdy Folks!

I’d like to share a story with you to start…

In 2002 the late great Colorado marijuana activist Ken Gorman and I were headed down to Colorado Springs to support a libertarian candidate for governor (Ralph Shnevlar) who was running partially on a pro-pot platform, and to promote the CD I produced for Ken called “It’s a Cannabis Christmas.” Upon arrival at the rally, Ken introduced me to Dr. Bob Melamede, a local professor who knew a ton about Cannabinoids, and the endocannabinoid system within the body. After listening to Dr. Bob speak at the event, his words struck me with such resonance, I knew I needed to know more. I arranged to have a meeting with Dr. Bob one on one, and to my surprise, he invited me―a young know nothing pot activist―to his home in the springs so he could show me some documentation that would back up with science what he was claiming cannabis could do. When I arrived we had a long conversation about the potential medicinal benefits of cannabis, and Dr. Bob showed me firsthand the x-ray photos of mice that had cancerous brain tumors being injected with THC, and the cancer going away. I saw with my own eyes the x-rays- and the mice’s tumors starving to death. That was back in the late summer of 2002.

Flash forward to 2010, when I am growing cannabis legally under state law in a house in the Denver ghetto, when my roommate bursts out of the bathroom where he had been reading a magazine, and says “some guy in Canada is claiming refined cannabis oil can cure cancer.” I remembered what Dr. Bob had shown me 8 years prior, and even though my roommate and I had severe doubts about what was claimed by Rick Simpson, when I told my friend the story of the mice who had been injected his eyes lit up and we both realized maybe it could work―and we would like to try it. We then found a way to make the oil ourselves.

The rest, as they say, is history, and it is still ongoing, as we don’t know if Cannabis will be legal here in Colorado, what has happened to my uncle, and will I ever get to legally make the medicine for others again? Through all that, I am so thankful that I went and saw Dr. Bob in 2002, to see those mice photos and hear that story. It led me to being rich at heart, as I know now not only that cannabis does cure cancer, but that I have the power to make the medicine myself. What a wonderful feeling that is…

And speaking of photos that can change people’s lives…we had a fantastic event in Colorado Springs the other night. Thanks so much to the THC Ministry for all their hard work putting this “Cannabis Cures Cancer” event together. Dr. Bob Melamede wowed the crowd with photos of a patient who used Cannabis Oil to cause a giant scalp tumor to fall off, leaving a healthy layer of skin underneath. Truly AMAZING pictures! And further proof the oil works. You can see all of Dr. Bob’s press releases at CannabisScience.com.

I also had a chance to talk with the sister and father of “Bill Smith”, a Colorado patient who is using Cannabis Oil to treat his rare condition. Their story, as partially featured on National Geographic Channel’s “American Weed”, is remarkable. Check out their website IamBillSmith.com for the whole story (Nat. Geo only used 20 minutes of 120 hours of footage they shot) and to keep updated on Bill and his family’s struggle to use a working natural medicine to treat his very serious condition. We wish them the best…

Stories also came to us at this event about “Realm of Caring”, a Colorado organization which is performing Cannabis miracles using the oil on all types of patients. They do all this despite the threat of persecution from the government. I have good information the testing is going extremely well. :-)

I also had many conversations with wonderful people about a variety of cannabis topics, including the right PH for water for making full melt bubble hash, is BHO ( Butane Hash Oil) Phoenix Tears (A Big No!), and a wonderful hand blown pipe came into my possession that I greatly appreciate! Vitamin Cannabis was shown to 25 people who seemed to really be into it, and Len Richmond’s “What If Cannabis Cured Cancer” finished off the night of exposition. There was laughter, there were tears, but―most importantly―there was hope for people who are sick and in need of real help. My thoughts and prayers are with all the patients whose family attended. The Cannabis Oil does work and you have a chance as long as you have breath left in your body, no matter what the medical establishment tells you your “time frame” is.

On a final note, a historical opportunity for everyone in Colorado to have the right to grow six Cannabis plants hangs in the balance by just a few thousand votes. I have already voted YES on Amendment 64 in Colorado, and despite my reservations about it, let me officially endorse it as of right now. Regardless of all the negative issues with 64, a million plus people in Colorado will be able to grow 6 Cannabis plants and keep their whole harvest. I know it can take a while, but six plants, grown 6 feet tall each, could give the grower enough to make oil very easily. Knowing that everyone in the state 21 and over can make their own Cancer cure is a GREAT THING- regardless of all the BS that will come with the new law. If you have the same reservations as I do, Vote Yes on 64, you will feel good doing it, and please encourage everyone you know to vote Yes as well as it may be very, very close. I have a feeling, though, that even a few Romney votes will be Yes votes on 64 as well, so I’m predicting a narrow 420 vote  victory. I’ll be posting a newsletter late Tuesday night or as soon as the election results for Amendment 64 are in this November 6th.

Thanks to everyone who attended the event- we hope to see you all again!

Peace and positive thoughts your way- Capn Cannabis
