Howdy from the wild wild weed filled west.  Happy Fourth of July everyone! May this message find you well and happy after this fine Patriot’s Day.  :-)

I’d like to start by saying Colorado tourism is up 3%, and I think it has a lot to do with our “friendly” attitude towards a beloved plant. The tax numbers are in, and 2012 saw over $5 million dollars collected in revenue by the state of Colorado, and that’s just in actual pot sales, and the tip of the iceberg. Tax revenue benefiting us all will continue to, pardon my pun, grow and grow, and pardon my pun again, like a weed! It’s beautiful times for all things pot in the state of Colorado…

In local regulatory news, the Department of Revenue “lost” some of the pot shop licenses, which were on a computer hard drive that somehow went missing or was deleted, the DOR won’t say. It’s suspicious to say the least, and incompetent at best, but oh well, it really doesn’t make that much of a difference to the average pot smoker.

Separate from cannabis but related, Colorado’s Crime Lab operator retired after a scathing report indicating falsification of lab test results for drug cases at the Colorado State testing lab. It seems the lab techs weren’t really doing their jobs like they should have been, instead they were “dry testing” drug samples (by using them?) and then reporting them as drugs despite not actually lab testing them. Some samples were outright changed to benefit police reports, and other issues of corruption at the lab have come to light, putting thousands of convictions at risk of being reviewed. It has happened in other places, no surprise it is happening here. What is surprising is it was happening at all; it seems like no place is immune to corruption anymore, but at least now it seems to also come into the light at lot quicker. Time will tell the ultimate results of this abuse of power.

And speaking of corruption, it was revealed the CEO of the Komen foundation, the pink ribbon starting race putting on non-profit organization that is apparently “racing for a cure” and accepts donations for cancer research, just gave their CEO a raise in salary to $684,000 a year, which is way more than the head of the United Way and other huge non-profits make. At the same time, the Komen foundation is cancelling races across the United States due to “lack of funding.” This organization is not looking for a cure, and it takes advantage of well-intentioned people who mean to donate to cancer cure research, but instead donate to a CEO’s inflated salary. Then the org spends virtually no money on actual research, and a ton of money buying machines from huge pharmaceutical companies to diagnose more people with cancer. Which of course will mean more treatments with chemo and radiation. Rick Simpson and Christian Laurette were right folks! The Pink Ribbon “Race for the Cure” people are actually “Running from the Cure” and have been contacted numerous times about the effectiveness of the Cannabis Oil, and have refused to respond. It’s up to each of us to tell others about the cure – and not by wearing a pink ribbon, but by mentioning Cannabis…

I’d like to interrupt this diatribe of negativity by pointing out some positive things in Colorado’s new laws, including the ability for ordinary citizens to have 72 ounces of a liquid cannabis concentrate or extract, of which the Cannabis oil falls into the category of! So basically, you can have enough Phoenix Tears on you to empty out most hospitals children’s cancer wards, and it would be totally legal. Awesome!!  You wouldn’t make Big Pharma any money, but you would make some parents very happy – and eventually kids are not going to die from cancer anymore :-)

And on another positive note, a study has revealed high CBD inside a humans system can help them eliminate cigarette smoking. My first hand anecdotal evidence confirms the study findings: on my heavy CBD “Batch Two” Vitamin Cannabis Oil, I still smoke, but curse myself whilst I puff and the cigs are not as enjoyable. I’m trying to quit –maybe more CBD could give me the will to finally kick the habit!

Okay, back to the negative, as the pendulum swings both ways. The U.S. Federal government did not legalize industrial hemp as part of the farm bill like it was so close to doing, so it will be another year before Colorado growers can plant their ten acres without fear of federal persecution, but some are doing it anyways. The Feds did allow for universities in hemp legal states to begin research projects, which is cool. I have a feeling our colleges will be looking into non-flammable hempcrete for building houses in our very flammable forests.

In Florida, an outright ban on pipes has been passed, and a second offense carries automatic jail time. I’m not sure if this also covers apple bongs and pop can pipes, but I assume it does. Imagine getting jail time for a toilet paper roll pipe! Clearly some individuals are still lost in a daze of endocannabinoid deficiencies. There are a lot of seniors in FL, so soon enough the benefits of the plant will reach even them; although it may take longer, seeing what is happening now with Florida politicians…

On a final note, in the early days of Colorado as a state, people flocked to our mountains and hot springs to seek relief from tuberculosis, and many places catered to those seeking respite from ailment. Today in 2013 I am witnessing history repeat itself, as thousands of people are coming to Colorado to seek cannabis oil, cannabis edibles, and just plain cannabis, to ease their suffering, and the pains of their loved ones. It is beautiful to see so many seeking to make their homes here. I can tell you from having seen 37 of 50 states, Colorado has something special, and our laws are only part of it. Our people, our spirits and souls all thrive on Rocky Mountain air and water. There is something here radiating positive energy, and it is being felt the world over, and drawing kindred spirits here, to take their rightful role, in the cannabis revolution.

I send some of that positive energy to you now~

Thanks for coming with me on this journey~

Happy 4th of July 2013- Capn Cannabis

Howdy readers!

A jolly time we are having in Colorado’s Wild Wild West. So good in fact, that “High Times” Magazine, and all Cannabis based print media, has been labeled as “Porn” by the Colorado legislature, and must be kept behind newsstand counters. Kush magazine used to be free at 7-11; High Times used to be visible up front. Now I can’t even find them most places. But weed stories are on the news almost every night. Crazy times…UPDATE: Colorado has just thrown out this law and my nug porn will return to normal places J

I was sent a link to an Italian Government sponsored study on “Future Cannabis Medications” that cited Rick Simpson’s method twenty times! I want to emphasize, the study does not focus on if Phoenix Tears Cannabis Oil works, but on what the best way to extract the cannabinoids from cannabis is. People in the world know it works! Is Naphtha really best, as Rick has always said? Check out the study results for yourself at the link at the bottom of this post/e-mail. I have said before Rick Simpson will win a Nobel Prize for re-releasing the phoenix tears formula. If he keeps getting cited by official government studies like Italy’s, it is going to happen. And he deserves it, I might add!

Speaking of Rick Simpson, he looks incredibly young, vibrant, and healthy in the movie American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny, by Kevin Booth. I saw the film at Cherry Creek Mall Cinema in Denver, a rare pot event in upscale Cherry Creek, but it was great to see it on the big screen. Did you know there are no cannabinoid receptors in the part of the brain stem where breathing and cardiovascular function is controlled (medulla oblongata), and that is why it’s impossible to overdose and die on cannabis? Its information like this, along with Cash Hyde’s incredible story, that make me say everyone should see this movie. Prohibition is going by the wayside, and its films like Kevin’s that will help push it into the fire. I spark one up for Cannabis Destiny – go see it!!

A study in Israel also determined Cannabis is effective in protecting the brain both before and after traumatic brain injuries. There seems to very little this plant is not effective at. Treating dogs can be another use of Cannabis, a veterinarian in CA reports. I have seen this and can verify the effects of the oil on dogs can be as amazing as on people, and it usually takes less oil. Another web posting describes Mango’s and its ingredient Myrcene, and their effect on “getting high” with cannabis. Reportedly the mango extract can make the high “higher” if used an hour before, and can lengthen the high if used while already high. Mango in the raw may be even better than the extract. Mango Smoothie, anyone?

In local Colorado news, Rev. Brandon Baker of the THC Ministry, which put on my film premiere in Denver and subsequent screening in Colorado Springs, is suing the State of Colorado for the illegality of the blood draws in the new THC DUI law. I applaud Rev. Baker for his efforts, and would like to add Olympic athletes can win Gold medals and have 149 nanograms of THC per ML of blood, but in Colorado we are considered “impaired” at only 5. That doesn’t make much sense – the limit should be much higher or determined on a person’s actual roadside sobriety and ability to drive a vehicle. Let alone the issue of a cop forcing you to a hospital to have your blood drawn and its blatant unconstitutionality. The law will probably stay on the books, though…sad.

On a happier note: HEMP IS LEGALIZED IN COLORADO! As is recreational Cannabis, of course. But all Colorado residents can apply for a permit to grow 10 acres of industrial Hemp. I’m gonna try and do it :-) I was able to be in the Governor’s office for the signing of the Hemp Production act in Colorado, and a video of the event can be viewed below. I also did a short “History of Hemp: Hemp for Victory!” Video documenting how hemp became legal in our state. A third video released the past month also shows the complete press conference and signing of our recreational marijuana regulation bill, which will allow pot shops to open in Colorado in January of 2014, and sell to anyone 21 or over. It’s gonna be awesome :-)

We also have a special “Batch Two” of Vitamin Cannabis with a much higher CBD content, and it is wonderful to be in a position to have such a blessed medicine. Fight for your Cannabis rights, folks – it will mean the world to you in the future!

 

Positive thoughts your way

Hello everyone- I hope your flowers are in bloom and some THC/CBD per day is keeping the Doctor’s away. :-)

I was visited by Lady Harlequin and CBD Bill the other day, and I posted a video of it you can watch here:

<iframe width=”420″ height=”315″ src=”http://www.youtube.com/embed/E4afLD1BufM” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen></iframe>

CBD Bill has a lot of great information about Cannabidiol, which may be the glue that sticks us together as it relates to the endocannabinoid system. Bill will also give you a cutting of his CBD heavy strain Harlequin if you contact him at the e-mail address in the video. It’s awesome to see people with incredible plant knowledge coming to Colorado to share what they know, which can benefit us all. I hope to continue to bring you videos through my YouTube that contain rare people and plants. If you listen close, CBD Bill imparts vast knowledge. Let’s prove this cannabis panacea cure-all, get cured, never get disease, live 150 years, and go to space. It’s a fun message, and entirely possible with Cannabis. :-)

In local Colorado Cannabis news, our Governor will sign into law the legislatures Amendment 64 (marijuana legalization) implementation bills, and also legalize industrial hemp, on Tuesday at the Colorado State Capital. It’s sure to be a historic signing – and I’m proud of our state, and her people. Legal hemp and somewhat legal cannabis with THC – wow! There was a time we all thought it would be California that legalized first. Now I get to watch history happen here in my state – incredible! Don’t worry, I’m sure your next, Cali!

In Global Cannabis News, the International Olympic Committee has decided to increase the amount of THC allowed in an athletes’ blood without disqualifying him to 150 nanograms of THC per 1 milliliter of blood. So athletes can win a Gold medal as the best in the world at something with 149 nanograms of THC per ML of blood in their system, but Colorado said I can’t drive with more than 5 nanograms of THC per ML of blood or I can get a THC DUI. Good for the IOC for recognizing THC in the system does not mean impairment, and as CBD Bill points out in the interview, THC and CBD at a 1:1 ratio would mean the impossibility of being high, no matter what the levels, but a user might feel tired. I think a THC DUI level set at 150 nanograms is a lot more fair and reasonable than 5. Ridiculous… It’s going to take some time to work all this out…

I’d also like remind Denver-ites to RSVP to American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny- a film by Kevin Booth of Sacred Cow. I have seen the film, and it is amazing!  A must see for oil makers, oil users, cannabis juicers, and all Cannabis advocates or consumers. Hemp Girl and I will be at the premiere in Cherry Creek on June 6th at 7:30 PM at AMC 8 – but you must buy tickets in advance to help make it happen. It will be an epic event, for sure, and you will leave changed, and empowered to do more for the movement and your own family. Reserve your tickets now at http://www.tugg.com/events/3877  for the Denver event, or look for a premiere in your area.

As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail cannabischorus@gmail.com. Big things are on the horizon – let’s ride the wave!

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
