José Mujica, more commonly known as the president of Uruguay, signed into law the legalization of cannabis at the end of 2013, and for that – for signing a piece of paper – he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Meanwhile, somewhere in the dark reaches of central Europe, Rick Simpson is forced to live in hiding thousands of miles from home; yet despite that enormous obstacle Rick is still helping people suffering from serious illnesses like cancer.
Rick Simpson is a hero: fact. That may sound hyperbolic to some of you, but just think about it. This is a man who risked imprisonment to give away – yes, give away – cannabis oil to sick and dying people. He risked his personal freedom not for profit or ideology but because he had discovered a medicine that could heal people, and he wanted to heal as many as he could. He dedicated his life to getting the message out there about cannabis oil being a cure for cancer, through lecture tours and documentaries and radio interviews. All this he did for the good of mankind. And instead of the authorities commending him for his efforts, and beginning clinical trials into cannabis oil, they sent the DEA and Canadian drug forces after him and tried to lock him up.
Jesus spent his life healing people and asked others to do the same, yet in the USA and Canada Rick Simpson has been persecuted for healing people and telling the world about cannabis oil. Somehow these Christian nations have morphed into the Roman Empire. It’s, frankly, shameful that the authorities believe they can justify spending tax dollars on “bringing to justice” a man who grew medicine and then gave it away to cancer patients.
Call off your DEA attack dogs, Obama, and instead phone the Nobel committee. We have a shoo-in for the 2014 award.
Watch Run From The Cure and see what all the fuss is about.
