Don't be stupid, what "smells fishy" is that neither you nor this doctor are fulfilling your burden of proof.
What do you mean? What "burden of proof"? This is a conversation, not a trial. This is an internet discussion forum. I'm a friend. Just please explain to me what exactly you want me to "prove" to you?
Neither I, nor anyone else, is obligated to do your homework for you.
Again... what does that mean? You're not making any sense to me; I'm sorry.
If you want to make a scientific argument, YOU go to PubMed and supply us with a well-written argument with appropriate citations.
Can I get you a cup of coffee while I'm at it? How about a bowl of soup? Here, open wide... here comes the spoon.
Why would I do your homework for you? You can type "cannabis" or "cannabis and cancer" in pub med's search engine and hit 'ENTER' just as easily as I can.
I am not going to do it for you; considering the fact that you appear to be seriously demanding that I do such, you really aren't in any position to be questioning anyone else's intellect.
I never asked you to do anything for me at all. In obvious sarcasm, I asked you to ignore Genesis 1. That's all. Unfortunately, you seem to have taken me seriously as to that request. So I now ask you instead, in all seriousness, to please believe the first chapter of the Bible.
I didn't ask you to do anything for me. Rather, you asked me
, "Does Dr. David Allen have any actual science backing his claims up?" I said, "Yes," and pointed you toward them. But holding your hand is not enough. You need me actually pick up the spoon and put it in your mouth. And if I did, if I cited some study or even three, you could easily just spit the mashed peas all over my face anyway. No thanks.
Go read it yourself if you're sincerely interested. I sense from your tone that you're more interested in being a sarcastic critic than in actually reading about this topic on your own. I could be wrong. But because that is my gut feeling, I'm not going to obey your commands nor even fulfill your requests. There have been times on this website forum that I've been forced to do the homework for my sarcastic critics. And those times have shown me it is, in a sense, like throwing pearls to swine.
Wow, look at all those grandiose claims of cannabis being the universal panacea without a single scientific source.
There are plenty of sources that are easy to find on the internet with Google and Pub Med. However, there aren't enough sources in the world to convince you that Genesis chapter 1 is true, much less that cannabis specifically is good.
I'd love to know what the heck mechanism of action you think the chemicals in this plant have that it can be used to treat warts (viral infection), MS (autoimmune disorder) and Parkinson's (neurodegenerative).
I'm a scientist and a doctor, but I'm not a medical doctor. Between two and four years ago, I read about twenty medical articles about the topics I have spoken here about, and much of it I did not understand. But a lot of it I did understand, especially the conclusions. If you want to read similar articles, or perhaps even the same ones, I have pointed you to where you can find them. I did not save them myself. I read them between two and four years ago.
But you don't have to be able to understand every word of every medical journal in order to see that when Dad finally decided to leave the laws of this world behind and give the child cannabis, in an attempt to save his life, the child was healed. http://www.kxly.com/news/Dad-Gives-Toddler-Battling-Brain-Cancer-Medical-Marijuana/-/101270/680588/-/biwphfz/-/index.html
. You can also see a video of the story at http://abcnews.go.com/Health/video/dad-gives-ailing-son-medical-marijuana-13527143
. Or, see also see these men who treat their Parkinson's Disease with cannabis. You can see the medical relief of their disease almost *immediately*: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEOoa6Q4Bds
and also http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUSbJWpafnU
. There are hundreds of other diseases and thousands of other personal examples.
Love your neighbors, for Christ's sake! The federal government has repeatedly lied to and deceived the U.S. population in order to achieve the current situation. See, for one small example of many, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7PlWcnIens
. If you will study the history of the prohibition, as I have, you'll find it very possible, if not even likely, his was done at the request of industrial lobbyists, often in the pharmaceutical lobby. The same have been heavily funding "the war on drugs" propaganda for at least as many decades as I've been alive.
May God grant us peace,
