RUN FROM THE CURE - The Rick Simpson Story 3/7

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
I met a girl at the Maccan Legion and she said this guy, Rick Simpson had cured her of cancer, So I asked the girl if I could meet him. And so, she told him and Mr. Simpson came to the legion. At the time, he told me he had discovered he could cure skin cancer and diabetic ulcers with a medicinal oil called hemp oil. And I took this man as sincere, besides that his father was a veteran and I felt an obligation to check his story out as a veteran's child, And so he took me with him. And I investigated it as I should have And he took me to these people, and sure enough, these people were all saying that he had cured them out, he brought forward the evidence and a proof. and our executive and president and all of us agreed that we had to do something. And people are dying needlessly and suffering needlessly. So we held a meeting and we discussed what we would put it in the paper, the president and treasurer signed the letter and we put it in the paper asking for an honest and open review of this medicine. And we started writing letters to Provincial Command as well as we sent a tape, I spoke to the president of Provincial Command three times, telling them to please come up and look at this and direct us here! And so, they refused to actually address the issue! and as our members and executive members, people were dying all around us and people didn't know. and so we decided we had to do something in that, and so that’s when we proceeded to take the direction we did and that direction was to call in these politicians or health professionals and our enforcement officials, and all the people who should have been contacted over this issue. And when we did, we wrote them a letter, and we stated to come to this meeting. We would show you the evidence, the human evidence, the scientific evidence and the medical evidence and that's when they came in and shut our Royal Canadian Legion down! What was really shocking, was how they did it. There's a battle brewing between a tiny Legion branch in northern Nova Scotia, and the Legion command. The doors are locked here at the Royal Canadian Legion in Maccan, even past president Rick Dwyer can't get into the building. The charter has been pulled and the executives suspended because of their controversial support of the use of hemp oil as medicine. And as Royal Canadian Legion members, for us to sit here while people were dying and suffering horribly and us knowing that this works! I don't see where there is any honour to that! Dwyer's view on the oil changed after his 82-year-old father started using it. He believes that it has helped, eventhough the oil is not endorsed by the medical community. Dozens of people in Maccan have been using the oil distributed by Rick Simpson. He says the legal and medical communities are against him and his discovery. But the Royal Canadian Legion, and if you read their books, and what they're supposed to stand for, it seems to me that this is the right organisation to bring this out. The Nova Scotia Nonavut Command of the Legion says it can't be used as a soapbox to distribute any political message, especially one involving illegal drugs. Steve Russell says what the local branch is doing could damage the integrity and reputation of the legion. Basically, that's stating a policy, saying that the Royal Canadian Legion is in favour of this, through their use of our organisation, and that contravenes our general by-law. Legion Command will appoint a new management committee to replace the suspended executive. Rick Dwyer can't believe it! What greater integrity or honour for the Royal Canadian Legion to speak up on behalf of all the men, women and children who are suffering? Wessel says that the Legion Command is considering further disciplinary action against the executive here, but a final decision has not been made yet. Meanwhile, Dwyer says he doesn't care much about that, he is just glad he did the right thing. Dan MacIntosh CTV News Maccan, Nova Scotia. The Maccan Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion was so impressed it hosted meetings like this one aimed at spreading the word about hemp oil. But when they planned a big public meeting, higher ups at the Legion shut them down. The Provincial Command came here the day of the meeting and they come in, they locked the doors. and I come into the yard they had two RCMP officers here and that told me I was not allowed on the property. They are using the Royal Canadian Legion, its name, its insignias, and the buildings as a platform to promote the use of hemp oil as a medicinal drug. I don't care if this medicine comes from a tomato plant, a potato plant or a hemp plant! If the medicine's safe, and helps and works, why not use it? For Rick Dwyer, it's an emotional issue. One of the testaments to hemp oil's healing power is his father a military veteran suffering from lung cancer. This last time I was in, I didn't know it, but they said I was going to die in 24 hours, but I didn't. So, I took the oil and everything worked out right. But the Legion is not budging! They've suspended the entire executive of this branch along with any activities planned for the building until they install a new management team. There is no provincial or federal regulation that states that this marijuana can be grown and produced into hemp oil for medicinal purposes, and therefore it's illegal as far as the province is concerned. And the Royal Canadian Legion does not back illegal operations. Simpson has had trouble with the law. The RCMP confiscated 16,000 marijuana plants from his back yard last year, plants he claims were grown for medicinal purposes, a court case is unresolved and so are questions within the Legion about whether hemp oil is medicine or menace. It goes against the general by-laws of the Royal Canadian Legion. What I did, I'm proud of what I did! I'm proud of it! And for now since the Legion is the town only meeting place, getting the word out about hemp oil will prove to be more difficult. In Maccan, Nova Scotia, this is Global National's Ross Lord, reporting. Because they had us under martial law, we couldn't make a decision, except for the four management committee members, who I feel betrayed all the other members. The came in, they took our freedom of speech away, we weren't allowed to talk about why they shut us down, so why were they there? I mean when you shut a Royal Canadian Legion down, you owe the members and the executive at least an explanation of WHY you shut them down! And if they shut us down over a cure for cancer, then who's doing the right thing? Us or them? Canada is in a cancer epidemic I had to blame somebody Their silence is killing us. Part of the natural process of life. A chemical is innocent until it's proven guilty. It's not that simple. When I first got diagnosed, it was the "Why me?" You know, it's not in my family! I've tried to be healthy! I eat my veggies. I exercise a lot, and, I try to live a pretty clean lifestyle! Shopping' for healthy foods, right? We know all those things, those things are great, but there must be other things going on! It's NOT about me! It's why? why is it now one in two who has this stupid disease? And what are we doing about it? 1 in 2.3 men and 1 in 2.6 women will have cancer in their lifetime. Dr. Sam Epstein, he's a professor at the University of Chicago and he's written this book called "Cancergate" He's very outspoken about what we're not being told. He's a pathologist with solid science behind him. There is now, a growing and critical demand for the role of corporate social responsibility for winning the losing cancer war. The facts are this: These are clear data showing that Canada is in a cancer epidemic. Nearly 1 in 2 men and more than 1 in 3 women are getting cancer in their lifetime. This is what Canadians are told about prevention: "The Seven Steps to Health" The Canadian Cancer societies have ignored or trivialised these concerns, and told the public if you get cancer, it's your own fault! You smoke too much! Which is actually right, I'm not knocking that, or you drink too much, or you're obese, or you don't exercise enough. It's a lack of healthy lifestyle. It's your fault when you get cancer! It's not because we have taken no action to reduce avoidable exposures to carcinogens. Whose fault is this? It's the fault of the Canadian cancer establishment, who have not informed the public! The consumer has to realise two things: That their basic rights as Canadian citizens, are being denied and challenged by the government, by the cancer societies But they're there to save lives- the Canadian Cancer Society! In 2004, Rick Simpson contacted the Canadian Cancer Society about hemp oil curing cancer. This was their response... The Society does not endorse or support medical products of dietary supplements. Thanks for the information. We wish you luck in your work.

A Film By Christian Laurette - After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. When Rick discovered that the hemp oil (with its high concentration of T.H.C.) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge - curing and controlling literally hundreds of people's illnesses... but when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine - leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments - and leaving Rick with unconsitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana!
