(NaturalNews) Raw marijuana is illegal in the United States and is not approved by the FDA for medical uses though many states have broken away from the Union preferring to help rather than hurt people, as the federal government seems to prefer. The federal government is ignoring the science that has repeatedly demonstrated that marijuana is not dangerously addictive, is less harmful than alcohol, and in no way causes the social ramifications that got it banned for in the first place. Charlotte Smith said appropriately, "Heaven would smile if we would drop the use of the word 'marijuana' which was given as part of their propaganda against The Holy Herb of Cannabis."

THC has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration because medical science confirms its use in a broad variety of clinical situations. Specifically a THC-containing drug called Marinol is FDA approved though it does not come close to effectiveness of natural cannabinoids. Synthetic copies of natural substances rarely if ever maintain the same pharmacological effects as the original and we know this to be especially true in the case of marijuana and the chemicals the pharmaceutical companies manufacture to simulate natural cannabinoids.

Marijuana is a very special natural medicine that increases our chances of beating cancer, though contemporary oncologists are mostly interested in it for its ability to mitigate the nasty side effects of chemo and radiation therapy. They would never think of it as an important part of the actual treatment of cancer.

Marijuana, whose botanical name is cannabis, has been used by humans for thousands of years. It was classified as an illegal drug by many countries in the 20th century. But over the past two decades, there has been a growing movement to legalize it, primarily for medical purposes. Medical marijuana use has surged in the 15 states, including the District of Columbia, that allow its use.

The endocannabinoid system is a set of nerve receptors and related body chemicals that deal with appetite, pain-sensation, mood and memory. The interesting thing about the nerve receptors is that they respond to cannabinoids, one of the components of marijuana. There are many pain-relieving medications available today. Without doubt pain medications are a blessing for the temporary relief of pain as well as for the people who are dying and suffering. The safest pain relievers though are the cannabinoids, which can be used for longer periods of time with fewer side effects and dangers.

I have written several books on cancer and have been championing medical marijuana in my protocols for over five years. I am now writing a book on cannabinoid medicine and even I am surprised with the depth of research that resurrects the popular marijuana medicine from the 1800s and early 1900s.

Medical marijuana is now a cutting-edge medicine -- one that has been around the block in the world of medicine and was especially popular in pharmacies until it was made illegal starting in 1913 just after the Federal Reserve Act was passed. The same interests that took control of the money supply took control of the pharmaceutical industry. These fast growing companies needed to make inexpensive drugs and pain medications illegal so they could legally get away with murder from the use of more dangerous synthetic drugs.

All research leads us to the undeniable conclusion that marijuana is the premier cancer medicine mankind has been looking for and finally has found. The problem is that there are special interests whose main interest is that real cures for cancer are never discovered. Actually it's a mistake to think in terms of cure; it's better to think in terms of effective treatment, for cancer is a very complicated phenomena with multiple and often concurrent causes. Treatments need to touch down on many if not all the causes to affect a permanent cure.

Everyone who knows of my work knows that I have never recommended single-shot cancer cures. In have always recommended magnesium to be taken with the baking soda. In Medical Marijuana I will strongly recommend that marijuana be taken with heavy administration of magnesium transdermally, orally, and by IV. Together cannabinoid and magnesium therapies will break the back of contemporary oncology's predilection to try to cure people by poisoning them with intensely toxic chemicals and radiation.

Oncologists also use sodium bicarbonate when they
administer chemotherapy to buffer the poisonous
nature of the chemo agents as they are administered.

Until this writing, magnesium chloride remained as the number-one priority in my cancer protocol with bicarbonate coming in second, even though bicarbonate offers more immediate benefit in terms of anti-tumor effects. Medical marijuana has been included with my core recommendations but I am now thrusting it to the forefront.

Despite the legal problems, it is time for the field of medicine to wake up to the true value of marijuana in the treatment of disease. Marijuana has moved into a first-place tie with magnesium chloride in my cancer protocol and I am now recommending that it be used universally. Its effect is just too good and its price too low. Some see goodness and affordability as unimportant but anyone with a humane heart must surely recognize the importance of accepting marijuana as a beneficial therapy. Doctors beware; in an age of financial and economic collapse we will be desperate for inexpensive medicines that are safe and universally available.

Modern oncology comes from pharmaceutical companies with a sordid past. Everything about chemotherapy shouts out medical madness. For instance:

"In the past decade and a half, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the following for first-line treatment of non-small cell lung cancer: navelbine, paclitaxel, gemcitabine, and docetaxel. In addition, docetaxel was also approved for second-line treatment. In 2006, the FDA also approved a labeling extension for bevacizumab (Avastin, Genentech, Inc.). We are repeatedly told that these drugs lead to a statistically significant improvement in survival, usually as demonstrated through one or two randomized controlled trials. What we are less often told is that the overall survival benefit of these drugs is in the realm of six to eight weeks! They hardly do anything in terms of real-life situations. Crudely put, the patient trades some serious toxicity for one to two months of increased survival," writes Dr. Ralph Moss.

"Doctors who truly care about their patients would do better to take a serious look at what is available in the field of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and advocate forcefully for clinical trials to further test the potential of the most promising less-toxic treatments," concludes Moss.

My Medical Marijuana book will be revolutionary for the medical field not only because it champions the use of marijuana but also because it combines cannabinoid medicine with magnesium and pH medicine. Add iodine into the mix and we have four super-hero medicines that when used together combine to form a protocol that works on the deepest levels of physiology to effect healing and health. Add a few more items like high-dose vitamin C, natural chelators, and superfoods and we already have a powerful anticancer protocol. (In one of my next newsletters probably titled "Natural Allopathic Medicine and Marijuana," I will lay out in more detail my full protocol.)
Marijuana is obviously useful for many more disorders than most doctors and the government realize. Not only is it a front-line medicinal for radiation exposure and cancer but also for diabetes and a host of neurological conditions. It is also the best and safest pain medication. Marijuana is effective in easing the inflammation of inflammatory bowel disease, and is very beneficial in easing the spasticity of multiple sclerosis.

Emerging Clinical Applications For Cannabis & Cannabinoids
A Review of the Recent Scientific Literature, 2000-2011

Different governments and states are arguing whether cannabinoids are appropriate to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with the medical evidence weighing heavily in marijuana's favor. In this regard we will in depth marijuana's positive use and contribution to helping with the human world of stress and emotional upset that occur with PTSD and many other disorders including cancer.

Contemporary medicine recognizes how stress is one of
the basic causes of disease but it does not recognize how
marijuana addresses stress in a way that other drugs cannot.

Modern civilization has made some incredibly deadly mistakes whose consequences are coming down hard on us right now. The biggest mistakes though have to do with how human leadership has been organized these past few thousand years. The elite families that have run down the centuries until their blood turned blue have made a religion of making mistakes. Their dark spirits have cast a great shadow over humanity and have touched down in an especially cruel and inhumane way by rejecting the natural good found in the exceptionally useful hemp plant that not only provides cloth for the shirts on our backs but also an exceptionally safe and effective medicine.

About the author:
Mark A. Sircus, Ac., OMD, is director of the International Medical Veritas Association (IMVA)

Dr. Sircus was trained in acupuncture and oriental medicine at the Institute of Traditional Medicine in Sante Fe, N.M., and at the School of Traditional Medicine of New England in Boston. He served at the Central Public Hospital of Pochutla in Mexico, and was awarded the title of doctor of oriental medicine for his work. He was one of the first nationally certified acupuncturists in the United States. Dr. Sircus's IMVA is dedicated to unifying the various disciplines in medicine with the goal of creating a new dawn in healthcare.

He is particularly concerned about the effect vaccinations have on vulnerable infants and is identifying the common thread of many toxic agents that are dramatically threatening present and future generations of children. His book, The Terror of Pediatric Medicine, is a free e-book offered on his web site. Humane Pediatrics will be an e-book available early in 2011 and then quickly as possible put into print.

Dr. Sircus is a most prolific and courageous writer and one can read through hundreds of pages on his various web sites.

He has recently released a number of e-books including Winning the War Against Cancer, Survival Medicine for the 21st Century, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rich Manís Poor Manís Cancer Treatment, New Paradigms in Diabetic Care and Bringing Back the Universal Medicine: IODINE.

Dr. Sircus is a pioneer in the area of natural detoxification and chelation of toxic chemicals and heavy metals. He is also a champion of the medicinal value of minerals and seawater.

Transdermal Magnesium Therapy, his first published work, offers a stunning breakthrough in medicine, an entirely new way to supplement magnesium that naturally increases DHEA levels, brings cellular magnesium levels up quickly, relieves pain, brings down blood pressure and pushes cell physiology in a positive direction. Magnesium chloride delivered transdermally brings a quick release from a broad range of conditions. His second edition of Transdermal Magnesium Therapy will be out shortly. In addition he writes critically about the political and financial crises occurring around us.
