Cannabis is the best natural expectorant to clear the human lungs of smog, dust and the

phlegm associated with tobacco use. Marijuana smoke effectively dilates the airways of

the lungs, the bronchi, opening them to allow more oxygen into the lungs. It is also

the best natural dilator of the tiny airways of the lungs, the bronchial tubes - making

cannabis the best overall bronchial dilator for 80% of the population (the remaining

20% sometimes show minor negative reactions). (See section on asthma - a disease that

closes these passages in spasms - UCLA Tashkin studies, 1969-97; U.S. Costa Rican,

1980-82; Jamaican studies 1969-74, 76.) Statistical evidence - showing up consistently

as anomalies in matched populations - indicates that people who smoke tobacco

cigarettes are usually better off and will live longer if they smoke cannabis

moderately, too. (Jamaicna, Costa Rican studies.) Millions of Americans have given up

or avoided smoking tobacco products in favor of cannabis, which is not good news to the

powerful tobacco lobby - Senator Jesse Helms and his cohorts. A turn-of-the-century

grandfather clause in U.S. tobacco law allows 400 to 6,000 additional chemicals to be

added. Additions since then to the average tobacco cigarette are unknown, and the

public in the U.S. has no right to know what they are. Many joggers and marathon

runners feel cannabis use cleans their lungs, allowing better endurance. The evidence

indicates that cannabis use will probably increase these outlaw American

marijuana-users' lives by about one to two years - yet they may lose their rights,

property, children, state licenses, etc., just for using that safest of substances:





Cannabis lowers blood pressure, dilates the arteries and reduces body temperature an

average of one-half degree, thereby relieving stress. Evening cannabis smokers in

general report more restful sleep. Using cannabis allows most people a more complete

rest with a higher amount of "alpha time" during sleep as compared with prescription or

sleep-inducing patent sedatives. Prescription sleeping pills (the so called "legal,

safe and effective" drugs) are often just synthesized analogs of truly dangerous plants

like mandrake, henbane and belladonna. As late as 1991, doctors, pharmacists and drug

companies were fighting off new legislation to restrict these often abused compounds.

(L.A. Times, April 2, 1991). Unlike Valium, cannabis does not potentiate the effects of

alcohol. It is estimated that cannabis could replace more than 50% of Valium, Librium,

Thorazine, Stelazine, other "-zine" drugs and most sleeping pills.


It is unconscionable that, over the past two decades, tens of thousands of parents have

committed their own children, aged 11 to 17, to be treated by massive doses of

so-called "-zine" drugs in order to get them off pot, at the urging of parent groups,

the PDFA, the feds and administrators and doctors from federally approved, private and

high-profit drug rehabilitation centers. Often, "-zine" drugs do work to stop these

youths from using pot. They also stop a kid from loving his or her dog, too - and

children stand a one-in-four chance of suffering from uncontrollable shaking for the

rest of their lives. But at least they're not high.


The U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta said that 20-40% of "-zine" drug users

have or will develop permanent lifetime pasies (shakes), November 1983. These

prescription neurotoxins are chemically related to the pesticide and warfare nerve gas

Sarin. Hundreds of private drug-rehabilitation centers and their leaders keep this

policy alive and in front of the media, often quoting discredited reports from NIDA or

DEA (see Chapter 16, debunking) because they earn fat profits selling their useless or

destructive "marijuana treatment" for children. After all, a relapse just means using

marijuana against after a number of bouts with an "authority." This is mind control and

an attempt to destroy individual free will.




One well known effect of THC is to life the spirit, or make you "high." Cannabis users

in Jamaica praise ganja's benefits for meditation, concentration, consciousness-raising

and promoting a state of well being and self assertiveness.5 This kind of attitude

adjustment, along with a healthier appetite and better rest, often represents the

difference between feeling like you are "dying of" AIDS or cancer and feeling like you

are "living with" AIDS or cancer. Cannabis also eases small pains and some big ones and

helps senior citizens live with aches and pains like arthritis, insomnia and

debilitating infirmities, and enjoy life in greater dignity and comfort. Legend has it,

and medical evidence indicates, that cannabis is the best overall treatment for

dementia, senility, and maybe Alzheimer's disease, for long-term memory "gain" and

hundreds of other benefits. U.S. statistics of the 1970s indicated that you will live

eight to 24 years longer if you substitute daily cannabis use for daily tobacco and

alcohol use. New research is outlawed, of course.




Every U.S. commission or federal judge who has studied the evidence has agreed that

cannabis is one of the safest drugs known. With all its therapeutic uses, it has only

one side effect that has been exaggerated as a concern: the "high." The DEA says this

is not acceptable, so cannabis continues to be totally illegal in utter disregard for

both doctor and patient. Every day we trust physicians to determine whether the risks

associated with therapeutic, yet potentially dangerous drugs are acceptable for their

patients. Yet, doctors are not allowed to prescribe the herb that Federal Judge Francis

Young in 1988 called "one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to

man." We don't put out doctors in charge of stopping violent crimes. The police,

prosecutors and prison guards should not be in charge of which herbal therapies people

may use to treat their personal health problems.



Missing Nixon tapes

excerpts begin with the Nixon doctrine on why marijuana is much worse than alcohol: It

is because people drink "to have fun" but they smoke marijuana "to get high." This

distinction was evidently enormously significant to Nixon, because he repeats it...


"You know, it's a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing

marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob?

Richard Nixon missing tapes



"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see

paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of

life as paradise."

>From Benito Mussolini contributing to the "London Sunday Express," December 8, 1935


"You're enough of a pro," Nixon tells Shafer, "to know that for you to come out with

something that would run counter to what the Congress feels and what the country feels,

and what we're planning to do, would make your commission just look bad as hell."

Marijuana does not lead to physical dependency, although some evidence indicates that

the heavy, long-term users may develop a psychological dependence on the drug"

Clinical experience suggests that it is helpful for patients with severe nausea and

vomiting, arthritis, glaucoma, muscle spasms, premenstrual syndrome, seizure disorders,

the AIDS weight loss syndrome, asthma, fibromyalgia, Tourette's syndrome, and

depression, to name a few.

Many thousands of patients are using cannabis to treat these and other disorders. Given

the legal risks, they would not be doing this if they did not believe it was helpful to

them. These patients are in urgent need of a legal accommodation that allow them to use

a medicine which they know is important to their well-being.

Prohibition causes depression


Peter McWilliams: 1950 - 2000

"As a result, his AIDS viral load, which had been "undetectable," soared to dangerous

levels. Peter was also very fragile psychologically. Aggravated by his health and legal

problems, he often suffered from debilitating bouts of depression. Certainly, he was

badly damaged by being in federal detention, and he knew from that experience that he

could not survive very long if he were sent to prison.

The San Bernardino County district attorney's office declined to file charges against

David Fawcett, a crusader for medical marijuana who says he uses the drug to treat

shingles and clinical depression.

I think they refer to moderate, occasional use, whitecluster, not the everyday, every way, ounce a day smoker... Of course, burning a substance and inhaling the smoke is going to coat your lungs, it's the thc and other cannabinoids in it that are the expectorant... A vape would probably make a lot of difference to your lung function, but then again, taking a break from choofing might do better... For almost all of us I think! :huh:


Just givin' you shit whitecluster, nothing personal. :o

The sleep thing definitely doesn't apply to me. Waking up from a stoned sleep I feel energetic for a couple of hours, but always want to go back to sleep again, and when I do I sleep for another 4-5 hours. But normal straight sleep and I'm fine, and generally have more energy throughout the day.
