February Newsletter 2014

Folks, I wouldn’t be writing this e-mail to you if it wasn’t for Rick Simpson and Christian Laurette and the bravery they demonstrated in re-releasing an illegal cancer cure contained within a harmless plant. I have said many times they deserve a Nobel Prize for what they have done; they freakin’ deserve it. Lately, medical science has been backing up Rick’s claims to the utmost extent. I have big news in this newsletter, starting with filmmaker Christian Laurette’s “Run from the Cure 2″ movie trailer.

When RFTC came out originally, it changed the world, and my life personally. It allowed me to save family members, and random strangers, and confirm what Rick said to be outright true in every fashion. To have been a part of this epic journey where I was accidentally part of a legitimate, working, now medically proven cancer cure, can only be described as an act of God. I did not set out to do that, I set out to legalize marijuana. It just so happened the two were intertwined. I have always been a religious and spiritual person, to have witnessed with mine own eyes such miracles, such struggle overcome, and such joy, brings tears to my eyes. I am “Rich at Heart” my friends, and you can be too. Make some oil and cure someone – you will feel what I feel… :-)

Please watch the trailer for Christian Laurette’s second film about Rick Simpson here: http://youtu.be/Qv8yxuv6e1w.

Spread it to those who need to know that cannabis cures disease. And by those who need to know, I mean everyone! The film trailer is a work of art in its own right. The film itself is setting up to be a historic document telling how the cannabis oil cure was released from its cage. Please share it, share your comments, and add your verse to the poem that is this rising story. Rising like the phoenix, from the ashes of prohibition. I rate the trailer “Top Shelf” and am honored to have been a part.

In addition to that, special thanks to Justin Kander of Phoenixtears.ca for the links to THE FIRST OFFICIAL CLINICAL TRIAL OF HEMP OIL on cancer – a leukemia patient- who did have the cancer eliminated- but died from other causes.  You can see her test results over a 72 day period here: http://karger.com/Article/FullText/356446

About the rapidly advancing medical research into Cannabis oil, I am thankful for it to finally be happening. There were some holdouts who just wouldn’t believe until medical science started confirming it in clinical trials; well, here ya go! This trial, and others, have led a group in San Francisco to call for immediate clinical trials to begin in the U.S. This comes as President Obama says he will not reschedule marijuana through executive order, but he would sign a bill doing so if congress passed it and it came across his desk. It sets up a plan for certain representatives in un-pot friendly districts to still vote “no” on cannabis “legalization” to save face, while a bunch of others vote “Yes” and send a legalization bill across Obama’s desk, which he will sign – then roll up a fatty! Then it will be up to the states to decide what to do about pot… and I already know how my state feels :-)

And did I mention Hemp has already been legalized (for universities and state agricultural depts.) in the U.S.? Snuck into the farm bill just signed? Well it is, folks. Hemp is legal in my home state of Colorado for ordinary citizens, and the rest of the U.S.A. in at least some form (view article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/the-/obama-marijuana-legalization_b_4768009.html). Can you believe it? I know somewhere Harry Anslinger is rolling over in his grave. About fucking time – pardon my French. But About FUCKING TIME!! And soon marijuana will be re-scheduled. In time for 4-20-2014, I hope :-)

Wow, what a sequence of events so quickly :-) :-) :-) Trinity of smiles, folks…

In other news, it is entirely possible the Colorado marijuana market could generate – get this – one billion dollars the first year, with over $287 million of that being tax money going to the state. Right now the estimate is $500 million, but another several dozen shops are set to open in the next few weeks.  I talked with our lead grower and he said we produced 700 pounds of pot last year. At $5,000 a pound retail, that’s over $235 million dollars retail – just from one facility. Our company has double digit figures of facilities, and there are lots of companies like ours, in addition to actual dispensaries (I work for a wholesale cannabis grow company, stationed at a dispensary – the best of both worlds), and edibles manufacturers grows. Total, by my math, there are over 400 facilities in the state who will earn $3.5 million, and that puts us at the Billion Dollar figure. $375 million is the most conservative estimate, $500 million more realistic, but a Billion is certainly possible, especially if tourists flock to the state in the summer, which is already a given. A lot of people planning “Hiking” trips here this year…

$1 Billion, and $287 million in tax revenue – and that is not including at all the other money the state is raking in from tourism, taxes on burritos/scissors/ electricity taxes. It’s all adding up to a great economy in our state. How is yours doing in your non-legal state? The town of Carbondale on the Western Slope of Colorado is seeing so many people this winter due to their one open recreational dispensary that the grocery store, gas station, and other retailers are reporting sales numbers as if it was the peak of summer tourist season – and it’s a freezing winter while they are making this money. See the article here: http://mmjbusinessdaily.com/rec-shop-lifts-businesses-in-colorado-mountain-town/.

It’s all 50 year olds and over – a growing group of cannabis enthusiasts – most seeking relief from pain and a desire to get off multiple medications with nasty side effects. Might I just say, welcome! Bring us your broken, your tired, your sick and your poor! There are those here in Colorado who can help you heal!

There is a great article on CBD you can read by following this link: http://learnaboutsam.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/CBD-brochure5.pdf.

It explains some of what the hype is, and why there is so much of it. Articles have come out recently, a 22 year old with autism has “had his light turned back on” by a CBD version of Phoenix Tears Cannabis Oil. Another 3 year old was able to clap for the first time and is experiencing similar “coming out” of the human spirit from the depths of disease. It is a blessing to the mothers of these children – I can’t help but cry a little just writing this. The genuine relief they are experiencing, seeing their children healing – as I watch on the news – is a blessing. Thank you, Lord, for Cannabis, Christian, and Rick Simpson. Children are being healed…

In related news, Josh Stanley’s Realm of Caring CBD oil non-profit has expanded, and now has a northern Colorado office to handle the patients, which now number 300 on a waiting list. The Stanley family has started “Strains of Hope” which will provide Charlotte’s Web high CBD medicine to other states and shops to begin healing children in other parts of the country, and the world – as they have an international waiting list. Families that can are moving to Colorado – 1,000 already, and more each month. The flood of marijuana refugees seeking cannabis oil in our state continues to grow. Other groups have stepped up to meet the challenge and help provide the needed CBD oil for all these children. The sense of community is strong here – we all get along – to move forward, put prohibition in the past, and put healing on the agenda.

On a few final notes, I had the honor of installing Radio Frequency Identification Tags on all the cannabis plants at our grow the other day – one of the first in history. I fought against these “seed to sale” regulations, but now I help implement them. How ironic! But I’m happy, and it’s the best paying job I’ve ever had, including managing a $1 Million a year pizza shop (which I just was able to leave). I joke at work that I would follow whatever regulations they throw at us, even if they said we had to wear hula hoops while harvesting. It became a joke: the Hula Hoop Regulation, you better follow it, $1000 fine if you don’t. It’s a joke, but we mean it. We would wear hula hoops just to grow cannabis and heal people – if that’s what it took. :-)

Speaking of Hula Hoops, after window smashing raids a couple months ago, all but 3 of the DEA raided pot shops are back open and still awaiting any charges – which probably aren’t coming. The feds and state (and IRS) flexed their muscle – the shops with $1 Million dollar grows claiming $300 a day in sales while other similar shops sold $3000 are gone – now they claim what they sell, and pay the taxes on it. That’s what it was all about: taxes. Compliant shops will be fine as they have been. The boys raided better play nice to the state, but they are back open and that’s a good thing.

A new term is circling through the industry “Trimmigrant” – a term for both a cannabis industry employee who transfers over from trimming to budtending or another cannabis job (very common 4 everyone to start as a trimmer), and also a person who moves here from another state to take a job in the cannabis industry. It’s cool to see so many cool people linking together in one state for one purpose. I’m not a trimmigrant yet – I’m still enjoying my time exposed to so much cannabis as just a trimmer – but one day I hope to make Vitamin Cannabis pills legally in a lab.

In the meantime, I’m writing an epic book about the story I’ve witnessed, the people I’ve met, the cannabis oil I’ve made and consumed, and the crazy life in pre- and post-legalization I’ve lived. I’ll leave that legacy to my Cannakids; Kyle Jr’s now 3 years old, and Serafina Faith turns 2 next month. It feels like only yesterday Kyle Jr was a newborn, I was fearing federal charges, and pot was illegal. Now they will grow up in a world where marijuana is sold in stores, Dad’s not a criminal anymore, and the cure for cancer can grow in our backyard… How happy I am for that! :-)

One more thank you to Rick Simpson, Christian Laurette, & Justin Kander for their contributions to this newsletter, and my life in general. I wish you all the best life has to offer. To everyone who has been a part of the Vitamin Cannabis story, I wish you the same. J

To those that read this far, I love you – I truly do. Positive thoughts and energy your way!

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
