CNN – Nearly half the respondents in a survey of U.S. primary care physicians said that they would seriously consider getting out of the medical business within the next three years if they had an alternative. . . A U.S. shortage of 35,000 to 40,000 primary care physicians by 2025 was predicted at last week’s American Medical Association annual meeting.
Scientific Blogging – Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore have shown for the first time that the emotions aroused by joyful music have a healthy effect on blood vessel function.
Music, selected by study participants because it made them feel good and brought them a sense of joy, caused tissue in the inner lining of blood vessels to dilate (or expand) in order to increase blood flow. This healthy response matches what the same researchers found in a 2005 study of laughter. On the other hand, when study volunteers listened to music they perceived as stressful, their blood vessels narrowed, producing a potentially unhealthy response that reduces blood flow. . .
Compared to baseline, the average upper arm blood vessel diameter increased 26 percent after the joyful music phase, while listening to music that caused anxiety narrowed blood vessels by six percent. . .
During the laughter phase of the study, a 19 percent increase in dilation showed a significant trend. The relaxation phase increased dilation by 11 percent on average; a number that the investigators determined was not statistically significant.
Most of the participants in the study selected country music as their favorite to evoke joy, according to Dr. Miller, while they said “heavy metal” music made them feel anxious. “You can’t read into this too much, although you could argue that country music is light, spirited, a lot of love songs.” says Dr. Miller, who enjoys rock, classical, jazz and country music. He says he could have selected 10 other individuals and the favorite could have been a different type of music.
In 8 of the 10 initiatives, drug reform got a higher percentage than did Obama!!!
NORML – Millions of Americans cast votes Tuesday in favor of marijuana law reform, approving nine out of ten ballot measures seeking to liberalize penalties on cannabis use and possession.
In Massachusetts, 65 percent of voters approved Question 2, which replaces criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana (punishable by up to six-months in jail and a $500 fine) with a civil fine of no more than $100. More than 1.9 million Massachusetts voters (and all but three cities) backed the measure – a greater total than the number of voters who endorsed President Elect Barack Obama (1.88 million). Question 2 is expected to become law within 30 days – making Massachusetts the thirteenth state to decriminalize the personal use and possession of cannabis. However, opponents of the measure – which include the state’s governor, attorney general, and all twelve state district attorneys – note that lawmakers still have the legal option to amend or repeal the new law.
In Michigan, 63 percent of voters approved Proposal 1, which legalizes the physician-supervised use and cultivation of medicinal cannabis by state-authorized patients. More than 3 million voters endorsed the measure, which received approximately 150,000 more votes in Michigan than did Obama. Proposal 1 goes into effect on December 4th, at which time nearly one-quarter of the US population will live in a state that authorizes the legal use of medical cannabis.
Thousands of voters in various municipalities also backed local ballot initiatives supportive of marijuana law reform. In Arkansas, 66 percent of Fayetteville (population: 67,000) voters approved Question 16, which directs law enforcement to make activities related to the investigation and prosecution of adults who possess up to one ounce of marijuana their lowest priority.
In Hawaii, Big Island (population: 172,000) voters approved a similar initiative, which directs law enforcement to make activities related to the investigation and arrest of adults who possess up to 24 ounces of cannabis and/or 24 plants their lowest priority. The measure, which voters backed by nearly a 3 to 2 margin, also forbids the County Council from accepting government funding to promote federal marijuana eradication efforts on the Big Island.
In Massachusetts, voters in four state House districts (encompassing 15 towns) passed nonbinding public policy questions directing each district’s state representative to vote in favor of legislation to legalize the medical use of cannabis. More than 70 percent of voters in each district backed the measures.
Finally, voters in Berkeley, California endorsed Measure JJ, which eliminates local limits on the quantity of medicinal cannabis that may be possessed by patients, and liberalizes municipal zoning guidelines for patient dispensaries.
By contrast, California voters rejected a statewide sentencing reform measure (Proposition 5), which sought expand the diversion of non-violent offenders to drug treatment and would have decreased minor marijuana penalties to a non-criminal infraction. Numerous politicians, including Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Democrat US Senator Dianne Feinstein, joined forces with law enforcement and the California Beer and Beverage Distributors to lobby against the measure, which gained just 40 percent of the vote.
Voters in Michigan and Massachusetts passed MPP’s landmark ballot initiatives to change marijuana policy in their states.
Today, voters in Michigan and Massachusetts passed MPP’s landmark ballot initiatives to change marijuana policy in their states.
Of the 13 marijuana policy statewide initiative victories in the history of the country, we just scored the second and third most important. (The first was California’s medical marijuana law in 1996.)
MPP’s Massachusetts initiative was the first time in history that a decriminalization initiative appeared on any statewide ballot, and voters passed it by what appears to be an overwhelming majority. The measure removes all criminal penalties for possessing an ounce or less of marijuana — replacing it with a $100 fine, which can be paid through the mail without lawyers or court appearances, just like a speeding ticket.
And Michigan voters passed MPP’s medical marijuana initiative, making Michigan the first Midwestern state to permit medical marijuana use by seriously ill patients (and the 13th in the U.S.). Michigan now becomes the second largest medical marijuana state in the country (second only to California). And as a result of tonight’s victory, almost one quarter of the nation now resides in states with medical marijuana laws.
Despite formidable opposition (including lies and dirty tricks from our opponents), common sense won — in large part because of thousands of MPP supporters who donated as generously as they could to both campaign committees.
The majority of these donors don’t even live in Michigan or Massachusetts but donated because this is what the movement for changing marijuana laws is all about — a partnership between people across the country, giving whatever they can afford in order to push change forward. The people of Michigan and Massachusetts owe a debt of gratitude to thousands of people in the other 48 states and Washington, D.C., who donated money for victories that they won’t personally see in their own states. And this is exactly how it works: In the upcoming two-year cycle, we’re going to be choosing a new slate of states, and we’ll all pitch in nationwide to pass those too … which includes passing bills through state legislatures too.
I’ll have more on our upcoming plans for you soon. But for now, please join me in celebrating two incredible victories.

Hypothesis on the symbiosis of humans and the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis.
11/5/2002 Stephen H. Saunders
This paper is dedicated to two of the greatest farmers I know- My Father Stephen G. Saunders and my Grandfather, James Levi Evans.
This paper points to several key physiological correlations between the chemical components found in the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis, and the chemical components required for the biological functioning of the mammalian species, Homo Sapiens.
The first correllary which bears scrutiny is the correllation between the nutritional requirement for Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) for proper maintenance of brain tissue, skin, and hair, and the chemical composition of the fruit produced by the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis. The essential fatty acid profile of the fruit of the Cannabis Sativa plant contains the full spectrum of essential fatty acids required by humans on a daily basis, perfectly balanced nutritionally down to the tenth of a percent, with nothing added, and nothing left out. This corrollary, when combined with the historical and cultural fact that the fruit of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis has been consumed for food for thousands of years by humans suggests that the consumption of this fruit has played a major role in the formation of the current chemical and physiological structure of the brain, skin and other physiology of humans.
The second correllary can be found by examining the structure and composition of neuro-receptor sites which exist on the surface of the brain of the species Homo Sapiens. The surface of the human brain contains minute areas which are called neuro-receptor sites which function to allow chemical compunds to interact with and have an influence in creating and maintaining all of the various chemical states of the brain. These receptor sites vary in size and shape, and thus allow various compounds to lock in to them, causing various changes in the chemical composition of the brain. Some of these receptor sites are substance-specific, which means that they will only allow specific compunds to lock in to them. Some receptor sites are susceptable to a phenomenon called blocking, which is created by compounds which, when locked in to certain receptor sites, create changes in the chemical composition of the human brain by preventing other compounds from locking in.
The chemical compound manufactured by the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis that sometimes has a psychoactive effect on the brain chemistry of humans called TetraHydraCannabinol (THC) consists of a particular formation of a compound called Cannabinol which is also manufactured naturally by the body to aid in the proper functioning of the cornea of the human eye, and support the ability of the human eye to discern the difference between lines and shapes. This compound has a neuro-receptor site in the network of neuro-receptor sites found on the surface of the brain of humans which is substance specific which is to say that no other chemical compounds are able to lock in to these receptor sites.
The surface of the brain of humans contains more of these substance specific neuro-receptor sites THAN RECEPTORS FOR ALL OTHER CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS PUT TOGETHER.
The arrangement of these substance specific neuro-receptor sites for Cannibinoids across the surface of the human brain has been scientifically described as ubiquitous.
Ubiquitous is defined scientifically as the state of being everywhere at the same time.
A symbiosis between the two species which would influence this level of chemical integration would require many tens of thousands of years of consumption of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis by humans to create such an enormous influence on the physiological structure of the brain of the species.
While virtually every creature on the planet has substance specific neuro-receptor sites for TetraHydraCannabinol (THC), the mammalian species Homo Sapiens has the unique condition of being capable of ingesting and utilizing TetraHydraCannabinol (THC) in such enormous capacities over all other chemical substances which influence the functioning of the brain of the species.
The Cannabinoids are found on the leaves and flowers of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis, as well as inside the fruit or seeds. The Cannabinoids are ingested by humans and delivered to the brain by consumption of the seeds/fruit as food. The Cannabinoids are also delivered to the brain by consumption of the leaves and flowers of the plant by burning and breathing the resultant smoke, or eating the leaves and flowers. The latter methods, which use the leaves and flowers create a psychotropic/psychoactive effect on the brain.
In examining the use for the Cannibinoids in the physiology of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis, we find that the plant manufactures the compound for use as a filter that blocks the upper end of the spectrum of light of the sun known as ultraviolet or UV light.
The TetraHydraCannabinol (THC) is a protective shield for the plant against UV radiation.
In light of these empirical facts, this paper demonstrates proof of species symbiosis between humans and the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis, predicated upon scientific proof which answers the following questions:
a) Does the deprivation of the full and balanced spectrum of Essential Fatty Acids delivered by the fruit/seeds of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis from the nutritional diet of humans create adverse effects on the health of the species?
Correllations between the historical date of the political prohibition of the fruit/seeds for use as a food source in the United States, and the ensuing decline in the use of the fruit/seeds as a food source throughout the rest of the world due to martial enforcement, AND the rise of aberrative forms of disease and illness cannot be overlooked.
b) Does the effect of filling the ubiquitous numbers of substance specific neuro-receptor sites for TetraHydraCannabinol (THC) located on the surface of the brain of humans create for this brain, as it does for the leaves and flowers of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis the effect of blocking or screening the brain and its brainwave activity from the effects of the radiation of Ultraviolet (UV) light?
Current commercial research and development into the use of THC as an effective ingredient in the manufacture of sunscreen for human skin suggests that its function in the substance-specific neuro-receptor sites on the surface of the human brain, acts for the brainwave activity of the human brain in a similar capacity.
c) While the consumption of the leaves and flowers of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis by humans through oral ingestion and smoking has been a part of human culture as far back as recorded history, is the sudden and sharp rise in the chronic smoking of the leaves and flowers of the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis by humans a symptom of malnutrition due to insufficient consumption of the seeds/fruit of the same plant, which would, as a staple in the diet of humans provide enough quantities of non-psychoactive/psychotropic cannabinoids to the brain, in addition to the vital, balanced profile of Essential Fatty Acids delivered by the seeds/fruit of the plant?
While there are many, many additional corrollaries which support the hypothesis of symbiosis between humans and the plant species’ Cannabis Sativa, Indica, and other hybrid strains of Cannabis, this paper focuses on physiological and biological data and ensuing questions and call for research outlined above.

OPEN MESSAGE TO ALL AMERICANS:
TO FIND THE HEALING LOOK TO 1938
TO FIND THE RAPIST LOOK TO 1938
TO FIND THE HEALING LOOK TO 1938
TO FIND THE RAPIST LOOK TO 1938
THIS IS A CLARION CALL TO THOSE IN THE NATURAL HEALTH INDUSTRY TO WAKE UP AND TAKE A STRONG AND POWERFUL STAND TO SHAKE OFF A PARASITE!!!!!
Use this information to research further, and fill in the missing gaps. There is much that relates to other industries in this Nation that were formed and controlled by the same form of “WEAPONIZATION” that was used against this Nation in the area of the Health of the individual, including the agricultural industries.
IT IS TIME FOR IT TO END.
The first initial attack on America’s health came in the wake of world war II.
It came from South America where the MIC (NAZI) set up a process of refining coca leaves in to coca-cola syrup, and bringing it North to dispense to the masses through the doctors.
The plan was to get the country strung out on cocaine and provide gold (who knows where they got that from?) and use it to fuel the rise of the age of industry.
After allowing the country to percolate through the “roaring” twenties, the cocaine and gold was cut off, and the country fell into the “great depression” whatever industry was still left standing was bought out and the newly forming industrial America was firmly in their control.
They continued the Attack on America’s health by expanding the newly formed, FDA.
They required all doctors to join and follow the FDA dictates or be discredited and eventually legally eliminated from the medical profession.
They then summarily eliminated the TOP FIVE LINES OF PREVENTATIVE DEFENSE against illness from the culture by manufacturing junk science quack reasons, and required the doctors to stop using them.
The preventative health practices are:
1. Hempseeds and Hempseed Oil as food. (For the reasons why this is health related see SYMBIOSIS http://www.majik.org/downloads/symbiosis.pdf)
2. The “Re-Scheduling” and regulation, and in the process, elimination of, the number one and number two most widely prescribed medicine in America up until 1938 which was HASHISH and Cannabis Extract.
3. The elimination of Colon hydrotherapy or ENEMAS, dismissed as “useless”
4. The elimination of Ear-Coning or “Candling” for the removal of Candida yeast and debris from the inner ear, dismissed as “useless”
5. the elimination of the use of silver as an anti-pathogen, specifically in the form of silver colloidialized into water, dismissed as “useless”
The rise of the Pharmaceutical Industry followed immediately after…
The “CONSTITUTION” of the Nation is another way of saying the “HEALTH” of the Nation.
Officially the Constitution of the Nation has been under attack at the level of the individual “Constitutions” of each and every person that has been alive in this Nation since 1938.
Officially, the Military bodies of this Nation owe the people of this Nation a DIRECT attack with the intention of the complete elimination of the FDA, and this is in process, as we speak directly and indirectly by forces who have pledged to uphold and protect the Constitution of the Nation. The process will be gradual, measured and was planned all along, and will make very little attention by anyone as it happens, and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it. This is not current or direct terrorist activity but a part of a planned agenda by those benevolent forces who control the future of this Earth, as ugly as that may sound.
The FDA is due for reformation, and it is quite obvious that the connection between food and health and the knowledge of this has been WEAPONIZED and used against the Nation for the benefit of a small group. Those activities are now under investigation and scrutiny by those in control of the future of this planet. Remediation planning is underway.
A full formal investigation and hearing on abolition or possible reformation, and remediation for the following Entities: FDA, IRS, FRS, DOA, AMA is necessary at this time.
It’s time for all of us to get PARASITE-FREE!
There is alot of information out here about the fact that EVERY OTHER one of us is infected with some form of toxic parasite that needs to be cleared from the body periodically, and could account for much of the other symptomatic disease that is suffered by many Americans.
Mainstream medicine appears to be ignoring them and misdiagnosing in order to prescribe drugs and surgeries.
Here is a link to place that has more useful information about all of this:
The findings of a review by researchers from the University of Massachusetts Medical School reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine, are unambiguous. Antipsychotic drugs, the most toxic of all psychotropic drugs, are being prescribed inappropriately for nursing home residents. In 1995, the percentage of U.S. nursing home residents who received antipsychotic drugs was 16 percent. In 2000-2001, the percentage skyrocketed to 28%. Of those 58% received doses “exceeding maximum levels” During the study period, more than 200,000 nursing home residents received antipsychotic drugs but did not have appropriate indications. In 2001, Medicaid spent over $3 billion for antipsychotics, more than it spent on antimicrobial agents, cardiovascular drugs, or antidepressants.
DW, GERMANY – A patient suffering from multiple sclerosis has been legally allowed to buy cannabis at the pharmacy under strict conditions. It’s the first time Germany has permitted the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Germany’ Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices for the first time approved the application of a 51-year-old woman suffering from multiple sclerosis to legally buy cannabis from a pharmacy to ease her symptoms. . . So far, cannabis has been illegal in Germany — only possession of small amounts of the drug are allowed — and its use for medicinal purposes limited to scientific studies and aims that “are in the public interest.”. . . In 2005, a court ruling threw into question the complete ban on cannabis for medicinal purposes. The German Federal Administrative Court ruled that the health of individual patients also lay in “the public interest.” That means that the Bonn-based Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices now has to consider each application for use of cannabis for medicinal purposes on a case-by-case basis. http://www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,2144,2746463,00.html
