Elderly cancer patient growing organic medical cannabis terrorized in armed raid when federal agents, helicopter descend on his property


(NaturalNews) An 81-year-old good Samaritan from Martha's Vineyard has become one of the latest victims of the failed Nixon-Reagan drug war, after Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) goons, in conjunction with state police and National Guard soldiers, raided his home, assault weapons in hand, over four backyard cannabis plants that he had been growing to make medicine for himself and a few of his friends in need.

Paul Jackson's labor of love crafting organic, home-brewed cannabis tea has helped many a suffering individual overcome their ailments, including his late wife whose final days as a pancreatic cancer patient suffering through chemotherapy were made a whole lot less excruciating thanks to the medicinal effects of cannabis. And since medical marijuana is legal in the state of Massachusetts, what Jackson was doing for the benefit of himself and his loved ones isn't even against the law.

But none of this was of any concern to the armed thugs who brazenly descended upon Jackson's property both from the woods behind his home and from above via a black helicopter to seize and destroy his plants. The DEA-funded "eradication mission," as it's being called, had one heartless goal in mind: destroy all the green plants because they're scary and bad.

"They just come charging through and start cutting it down," Jackson, a renowned organic gardener who's earned more than 300 ribbons at the Martha's Vineyard Agricultural Fair, told the Martha's Vineyard Times about the jarring experience he endured at the hands of a rogue police state.

"I told them they don't know what they're doing, they're destroying it and it could be used for good purposes. I know because I went through it before." Speaking directly to a reporter from The Times, Jackson added, "You wrote about it in The Times. I had the article framed, took it out to show them; I said, 'This is proof of what it does,' but they didn't want to hear it."

Every human being has a God-given right to grow healing plants without government intervention

Jackson was referring to a piece published in The Times entitled, "Love, life, and death: A Martha's Vineyard marijuana story," which tells the story of Jackson's wife Mary, whom he had been married to for 53 years until she died, and how she was able to get off morphine, a deadly drug, by taking safe, all-natural cannabis instead.

"I never ever saw pain in her face," Jackson recalled, with tears in his eyes. "She was eating and happy, right up until she died. You had to see it to believe it. People don't understand it. It's a beautiful plant and it works beautifully."

Healing plants are an amazing gift from God, and growing them doesn't have to be a full-time job. The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box 2.0 is an easy and inexpensive way to produce your own medicine without chemical pesticides and herbicides.

Jackson continues to brew organic cannabis tea in his home, and has no plans of stopping simply to appease the unjust sentiment among authorities that cannabis is evil. He also keeps a store on hand to help his friends and neighbors, many of whom are finding real relief from cannabis after trying pharmaceutical pill after pharmaceutical pill, only to suffer horrible side effects while experiencing no relief.

As to why Jackson doesn't rely on local medical dispensaries for his cannabis, he told The Times that his homegrown organic cannabis is clean and better for healing, as opposed to the chemical-laced strains provided by big grow operations controlled by the state. He's seen the difference with his own eyes, and he'll never go back.
