Good morning!
My name is Virgil Anderson, and I’m a mesothelioma cancer patient at The National Cancer Institute.
I was reading through kyusmjparty.weebly.com, and I was hoping you had a minute to check mesothelioma.net. Mesothelioma dot net is the world’s most comprehensive informational site on mesothelioma treatment.

Because of this cancer’s very poor prognosis, our site cover a wide range of therapeutic treatment options, including medicinal marijuana and CBD oils. You can read more at mesothelioma.net/medical-marijuana-mesothelioma/.
In fact, we have over 1000 pages on health therapies alone, ranging from nutritional to naturopathic therapy.
Ultimately, I was hoping you could take a minute to review some of that information and consider consider linking back to our site. If you need additional literature, or would like to hear about other treatment options, please let me know. I’d be delighted to chat.
I applaud your work at kyusmjparty.weebly.com, and I appreciate your time in advance. Anything you can do to help would go a long way.
Hope you’re off to a good start in 2017, and God Bless.

How Medical Marijuana Helps Mesothelioma Patients

 

When it comes to treatment options for cancer, individuals will typically undergo aggressive chemotherapy in order to combat the equally rapid growth of the cancer cells. The treatment, however, can leave patients feeling drained if they do not make the necessary lifestyle changes. Fortunately, however, medical marijuana is available as an option to help reduce the severity of chemotherapy side effects.

 

Appetite Improvement

 

One of the most advantageous reasons to consider medical cannabis as a supplementary medication is for the advantages it offers individuals struggling with nausea and appetite suppression. Medical cannabis is often used as a way to encourage patients to eat more, and it can be one of the best medications to apply for singular benefits because of how few side effects the supplement has.

 

Pain Management

 

Medical cannabis can also be invaluable for those who want to manage the regular pains and aches that come with chemotherapy. Because of the heavy toll that the primary medication can take on the body, many individuals may feel as though they do not have as much mobility or comfort available to them. Medical marijuana can be used as a pain management tool, reducing the aches while also improving the individual’s response to the pain.

 

Mood Stabilization

 

Cannabis can be a powerful tool when it comes to mood elevation. Many individuals may feel their moods worsen when they undergo chemotherapy and feel the side effects that come from it. With cannabis, however, individuals will feel much more optimistic about their treatments, which can lead to a better recovery in the future, as the body will respond to how the individual feels.

 

Those interested in such a program should be sure to speak with their doctor in order to determine what type of treatment will work best for their needs.

 

 

Dr. Juan Gonzalez, Bowling Green Kentucky Holistic Practitioner is found dead


By Erin Elizabeth

March 4, 2017

UPDATE: Police are treating his death as a HOMICIDE, reports the mainstream media.

Police have now confirmed that 59-year-old old Dr. Juan Gonzalez, a board certified holistic doctor, has died.

Dr. Juan Sanchez Gonzalez had a business degree from WKU and multiple degrees in naturopathic medicine. He retired from the United States Army with his last assignment at Fort Knox, Kentucky, but appears to have had a thriving practice with many loving patients who are now mourning his death online.

Since arriving on the scene on Friday night, the Bowling Green Police Department have released few details. We know that detectives were called to the business at 1022 31-W Bypass for a welfare check and found a man dead inside the building upon arrival. They’ve finally released the name and it’s being treated as a murder.

“Usually I’ll park in the back in the mornings, but today I wanted to park a little bit closer, so it’s definitely going to make me and probably everyone else in the area a little bit more cautious and aware,” said Alicia Jones, who works at Robertson Auto Sales.

Businesses say that owner, Dr. Juan Gonzalez, has a car that hasn’t moved from the scene since the incident, but they know little of the owner beyond that.

Many owners in the area weren’t at work when the police arrived on scene due to the late hour, but Saturday Jones told 13-News the daylight didn’t do much to erase her uneasy feeling.

“It was alarming when I found out what was going on, but hopefully it will get resolved soon [along with] the mystery of what happened and why.”

Our heart goes out to his family and friends. We truly hope they discover who killed this holistic doctor whose patients rave about him.

He was so against the neoconservative Iraq war he dedicated his album to it. As a result SONY refused to publicise…


Michael Aydinian

Yesterday at 2:23pm ·

I was not going to post anything today but my friend Jamie Rous sent me a link about George Michael. I was never a fan. Nevertheless I was shocked to hear he’d died at 53. This link, however, focused on what we weren’t told about him & it sure knocked me bandy. I’ve always been a free-thinker. I felt religion was baloney at 10. I risked expulsion from school at 14 when I was the only pupil who refused to go to morning prayer. Around this time I was also convinced what I was hearing about Israel in the media didn’t add up. Yet I’ll admit – I had absolutely no idea about this.

Even though I was mystified as to why in the last 25 years or so George Michael didn’t rake it in when seemingly all he had to do was walk into a recording studio, should I have known better? I merely assumed he’d either made his whack & couldn’t be bothered or he’d lost his touch. Since my foray into social media & the Internet began in 2011, long after the censorship & vilification of the singer/songwriter, how was I supposed to know? So, what this clearly indicates once again is the enormous power of the media. Not only can they suppress the truth but they then character assassinate anyone brave enough to speak out.

It sickens me no end: I realise now all these lewd stories about George Michael may well have been total fabrications by the Zionist media. It really is a case of ‘don’t mess with us. We’re bastards & we will screw you’ & this most definitely applies to stars & celebrities. I mean they deliberately lied about Iraq, Libya & a host of countries. Millions have died as a result. No sorry; no nothing & THEY STILL LIE THEIR ARSES OFF! Therefore, one has no option but to conclude they’ve no scruples whatsoever. Worse still, while they’ve the audacity to brand those who dare to speak out sexual deviants, they pull out all the stops to protect the real pedophiles & perverts! The entire mass-media is placed on clam up alert so the public remains largely unaware our corridors of power are riddled with child molesters, while behind closed doors sufficient pressure is applied on the Police to drop, what are, open & shut cases of child molestation.

Case in point: How many people know about Tony Blair’s prosecution in 1983 in Lewes Crown Court where he was convicted of performing an improper sexual act in a men’s public toilet? He was fined £500 but for some reason allowed to commit perjury by only giving his middle names in court – Charles Lynton. To this very day the media have kept this astonishing piece of news out of the headlines. It goes without saying – had the truth been known, Blair’s political career would have hit a brick wall. Instead he went on to become war-monger extraordinaire & the perfect Zionist puppet by dutifully perpetuating media falsehoods in order to go to war. Now read this piece by Asghar Bukhari & Nina Saddique & tell me you don’t feel somewhat perturbed.

“Not many people know this but, George Michael was Pro-Palestinian & against the Iraq War.

BBC banned the single he sang for Gaza & the powers that be absolutely assassinated his character/reputation & his credibility. When addressing Blair’s decision to go to war he said….
One of the central issues is being lessened in the British media and the American media, which is the importance of sorting out the problems in Palestine…..

…..and the worldwide perspective is that America is about to attack Saddam Hussein for oil and (Israeli Premier Ariel) Sharon is left to get on with his own business in Israel and that those two things show an absolute double standard…..”

George Michael RIP – researched and written by Nina Saddique

‘Now you have probably never heard of this, and that is how the pro Israel media works. All they ever told you about George Michael after his comments were designed to destroy his public image. They turned him into an out-of-control freak show. Sex and drugs – that’s all the headlines were about.

Buried was the story they didn’t want people talking about. He was so against the neoconservative Iraq war he dedicated his album to it. As a result SONY refused to publicise it. A clue as to why was found in WikiLeaks when an alleged hack by a North Korean showed that powerful Jewish Zionist executives at the top of Sony Entertainment were fuming that certain artists had shown their support for the Palestinians and were discussing how to stop it.

The split between him and Sony over this ended his career as he promised never to sing for them again. Their refusal to terminate his contract meant he lost hundreds of millions of pounds in lost album sales – which suited them fine. They had destroyed another pro-Palestinian voice.

He continued to speak out after this which was the last straw for the establishment who vilified him. He was blacklisted by the music industry in the USA according to an interview he gave years later and had to flee America due to threats of violence against him due to his opposition to the neocon war and the Media hate campaign. He lapsed into drink and depression and would never be the same again.’

I’d just like to add this cannot be mere coincidence. The list is simply too long. There is a finite number of people in the public eye. Only a small percentage have the balls to speak out against war, yet an inordinate number of these well known figures end up suffering premature deaths. How can it possibly be? The late great George Carlin touched on this….. (click caption below for my website & other captions)

There are many, many more – Aaron Russo, Bill Hicks, Jimi Hendrix, a host of journalists – I could go on forever adding to the list of famous people opposed to war, dying in mysterious circumstances. For now I’ll simply mention John Smith – the Labour Leader who was all set to become Prime Minister & so crucially would never have colluded with GW Bush & the lies of Wolfowitz, Perle & Feith in order to attack Iraq. His untimely ‘death’, when he was full of beans, opened the way for Blair to become Labour leader & thus pursue a course of action Smith would never have even contemplated. Add the sudden deaths of Robin Cook, Blair’s Foreign Secretary, who due to his opposition to the Iraq war had resigned & the out-&-out murder of Dr Kelly, UK’s chief weapons inspector to Iraq, who’d flat out stated Blair & the media was lying about Saddam’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, what the hell are we supposed to think?

Now ask yourself – how many war-mongering, mass-murdering vermin die prematurely? I can’t think of one! What I do know is some of the greatest scumbags in history like Dick Cheney & David Rockefeller receive the kind of medical treatment most ordinary folk have little or no idea even exists! I’ll say it one more time – we really do live in a sick world.

RIP George. I’m sorry. At least I realise now you were a man who stood up for what was right.

George Michael RIP: Now you know why the media told you what they did

Cannabis convict Eddy Lepp free from prison


Lepp, age 64, hailed as a “marijuana martyr” by supporters

SAN FRANCISCO — Free after eight years of federal imprisonment, one of the nation’s most celebrated cannabis convicts came home to California on Wednesday, walking off a United Airlines flight into the warm embrace of supporters — and a profoundly changed world.

Charles “Eddy” Lepp, a defiant 64-year-old Vietnam vet and ordained Rastafarian minister, was convicted on federal felony charges in 2007 for doing something that California now considers legal because of last month’s passage of Proposition 64: growing marijuana.

 

“I’m very honored. I’m very humbled. Thank you so much for caring,” Lepp told friends and family at San Francisco International Airport, tears streaming down his creased cheeks.

Then he vowed to fight for national legalization of cannabis and presidential pardons for first-time nonviolent drug offenders.

“Just because I went to federal prison doesn’t mean I got off the horse,” said Lepp, who will be on drug-monitored probation for five years. “It is still a long, long ride — and I’ll be there when it’s done.”

Radiation oncologist tells panel that former cancer patient’s trials changed his perspective on medical cannabis


09/21/2016 06:02 PM

526275994

 

FRANKFORT — A radiation oncologist says his experiences watching a cancer patient ultimately lose her battle with the illness while also defending herself against charges of growing marijuana caused his perspective on medical cannabis to change completely.

Dr. Don Stacy, who practices in the Louisville area, told the Interim Joint Committee on Health and Welfare on Wednesday that the woman, a 25-year-old female, had developed head and neck cancer.

And after various prescriptions did nothing to help her cope with complications of her chemotherapy and radiation treatment, she found relief in marijuana.

The cancer ultimately disappeared, and she married and had a kid.

But her ending wasn’t a happy one.

“Unfortunately her cancer recurred after treatment,” Stacy, medical liaison for the Alliance for Innovative Medicine, told lawmakers. “Her husband abandoned her. She then started aggressive treatment again to try to control her recurring disease, which led to a variety of severe side effects. Based on her experience initially, she decided to try to restart to smoke cannabis again.”

The woman, who was sexually assaulted in that time, eventually began growing marijuana at her home, sparking the interest of law enforcement.

“She was arrested, her child was taken away from her, and she ended up dying of her cancer.”

Stacy said the woman wasn’t the only patient who informed him of marijuana use, adding that the patients who self-report using cannabis say it is “highly effective at minimizing their symptoms” that can include nausea and pain.

Medical marijuana is legal in 25 states and the District of Columbia, and the issue has shown marginal progress in recent legislative sessions.

But lawmakers indicated that they’ll need to see more before signing onto a bill legalizing pot for medical use.

Sen. Ralph Alvarado, R-Winchester, said he’s keeping an open mind on the topic and wants to see more clinical trials on medical marijuana. Groups like the American and Kentucky medical associations and those advocating for victims of multiple sclerosis have also said additional trials are needed, Alvarado said.

“They claim it improves (symptoms of multiple sclerosis), and when I’ve asked their folks what is your official stance as an organization, they say we want more studies on this topic to know if it’s going to work or not,” he said.

Senate Majority Whip Jimmy Higdon, who read from a recent Politico article authored by his son, James Higdon, on South Carolina Senator and former presidential candidate Lindsey Graham’s evolution on the subject, says he’s on the fence about medical cannabis.

One important factor will be how it’s defined in legislation.

“Bills like Sen. (Morgan) McGarvey’s bill, I could support a bill like his that deals with end-of-life issues for Hospice patients,” said Higdon, R-Lebanon.

McGarvey’s bill, Senate Bill 304, would have created a classification of medically necessary marijuana and a task force to craft enabling legislation, specifically for end-of-life scenarios, for the 2017 session. SB 204 and other previous efforts to legalize medical cannabis haven’t gotten past their respective committees.

In July, Sen. John Schickel, a Union Republican and chair of the Senate Licensing, Occupations and Administrative Regulations Committee, held an informational heaing on the issue in hopes of advancing debate during the legislative interim.

Rep. Tom Burch, who chairs the House Health and Welfare Committee, said lawmakers will continue to grapple with the subject in upcoming sessions “until we finally do something about it.”

“In 1974 I voted to criminalize marijuana, so I was one of the bad guys I guess,” said Burch, D-Louisville.

This Week In Louisville History: The city battles the 1918 Flu Pandemic


800px-1918_flu_outbreak2

By John King

On Oct. 18, 1918, an emergency meeting was held at the Seelbach Hotel concerning the rapid spread of the influenza virus in Louisville. The outbreak, known later as the 1918 Flu Pandemic, would infect nearly 500 million people worldwide and spread quickly around the world aided by the movement of troops involved in WWI. Military installations tended to be hit hardest, and Louisville happened to house the largest World War I Army training camp in North America, Camp Zachary Taylor. Camp Taylor housed over 45,000 enlistees and officers in 1,530 buildings over 3,376 acres.

On Sept. 24, the Louisville Times had reported over 100 soldiers at the camp had caught the flu. By the next day, that number more than doubled, and within a week it had infected 2,100 soldiers. Officers at Camp Taylor enacted measures to protect the city — soldiers were prohibited from entering movie theaters, restaurants and other establishments in Louisville. To enforce this, military police were stationed in strategic locations in town to stop soldiers from having contact with the public, but it was too late. On Oct. 12, the health department reported 2,300 cases in the general population.

By the time members of the state Board of Health, the U. S. Public Health Service, military authorities and Kentucky health officers met at the Seelbach Hotel, the city was in a desperate situation. The Louisville Board of Health reported citizens falling over in the streets across the city. The state Board of Health ordered, effective the next day, all saloons, soda stands and malt shops must close between 6:30 p.m. and 6:30 am. An order closing all churches, schools and places of amusement was also in effect.

The Louisville Times reported that Louisville citizens banded together, volunteering their services. The Women’s Service League and the Louisville Automobile Club worked together in organizing a motor pool to help nurses carry out home visits. Women in particular aided in the effort, donating their automobiles and services to help nurses make an astounding 2,589 house calls by the end of the month. Nurses were working seven days a week trying to stop the epidemic. The Louisville Board of Health reported having to force nurses and volunteers to take breaks and rest as they were pushing themselves too far in trying to keep up with so many infected.

Two-faced Kentucky calf makes people do a double-take


By Josh Breslow

Connect

TAYLOR COUNTY, Ky. (WDRB) — As Stan McCubbin walked his property Friday on Spurlington Road near Campbellsville, he noticed something out of the ordinary.

“From a distance, I thought I had twins lying together,” said Stan McCubbin. “I saw two noses. I thought it was twins and then when I saw her, I was just completely blown away.”

“He was just like, ‘I’ve got a two-headed calf, so I was in shock,” said McCubbin’s wife, Brandy.

Lucky — as she’s known — really earned her name.

“She has two heads, but I’m okay with that,” said the couple’s five-year-old daughter Kenley.

“I said she was lucky to live, and our little five-year-old, Kenley, said ‘That’s her name — Lucky’,” said Brandy McCubbin. “She is lucky and we’re blessed to have this happen on our farm.”

While the family says the heifer calf is lucky to be alive, Lucky does have her share of problems.

The middle two of Lucky’s four eyes do not blink or function. She can stand up but she walks in circles and then falls over.

The good news is that the calf is eating, but it takes a little extra help to get her fed.

Another interesting note — when one of her mouth moves, so does the other.

Most with this incredibly rare genetic mutation are stillborn, but the McCubbins say Lucky seems to be healthy for now.

“I’m just thinking, ‘How many days do we have?’ and I mean, it’s a blessing that we get to go through this with our children and our family and it’s just something unique and rare,” said Brandy McCubbin.

“It’s something I’ve never seen before and I think it’s amazing. I think it’s something these kids will get to remember forever,” said Stan McCubbin.

Since Lucky’s birth, the McCubbins say they’ve had several visits from people who have heard about the calf with two faces and just want to see her up-close.

This is me at 21 years old. This is the day I graduated from the Detroit police academy…


Merri McGregor

Yesterday near Harrison Township, MI ·

This is me at 21 years old. This is the day I graduated from the Detroit police academy at 4:00pm, went home and took a couple hour nap, woke up at 9:30 that night and reported to my first tour of duty at the 12th Precinct for midnight shift. Look at that smile on my face. I couldn’t have been more excited, more proud. Armed with my dad’s badge that he wore for 25 years on my chest, one of my mom’s sergeant stripe patches in my pocket, my lucky $2.00 bill tucked into my bulletproof vest, a gun I was barely old enough to purchase bullets for on my hip and enough naive courage for a small army, I headed out the door…my mom snapped this photo on my way.

The next 17 years would bring plenty of shed blood, black eyes, torn ligaments, stab wounds, stitches, funerals, a head injury, permanent and irreparable nerve damage, 5 ruptured discs, some charming PTSD and depression issues and a whole lot of heartache. They brought missed Christmases with my family, my absence from friends’ birthday get-togethers, pricey concert tickets that were forfeited at the last minute because of a late call and many sleepless nights.

I’ve laid in wet grass on the freeway for three hours watching a team of burglars and orchestrating their apprehension, I’ve dodged gunfire while running down a dark alley in the middle of the night chasing a shooting suspect, I’ve argued with women who were too scared to leave their abusive husbands until they realized they had to or they would end up dead. I’ve peeled a dead, burned baby from the front of my uniform shirt, I’ve felt the pride of putting handcuffs on a serial rapist and I’ve cried on the chest of and kissed the cheek of my dead friend, coworker and academy classmate even though it was covered in his own dried blood and didn’t even look like him from all the bullet holes. I know what a bullet sounds like when it’s whizzing past your ear, a few inches away, I know what the sound of a Mother’s shrilling scream is like when she finds out her son has been killed in the middle of the street and I know what it’s like to have to tell a wife and mother of 3 that her husband was killed in a car accident while on his way home from work.
Smells, pictures, sounds and sights are burned and engrained into our minds…things we can never forget, no matter how hard we try; things that haunt our sleep at night and our thoughts during the day; things that we volunteered to deal with so that you don’t have to. Things I don’t want my sister, little cousins or YOU to even have to KNOW about.

I never once went to work thinking, “I’m gonna beat someone tonight.”; “Hmmm…I think I’m gonna kill someone tonight.” I DID, however, go to work every night, knowing that I was going to do the best I could to keep good people safe, even if that meant that I died doing so.

We ALL need to start being more understanding and compassionate toward one another. Violence doesn’t cure violence and hate doesn’t cure hate. I’ve seen and experienced both sides of the spectrum since I left the PD and I get it. I truly do. But this all has to stop.

Are cops perfect? No. Are there bad cops? Yes. But please…understand that the vast majority of police are good, loving, well intentioned family people. They have husbands and wives and children and parents and pets and cousins and mortgages and electric bills and lawns that need cutting, just like you. They have hearts and consciences. They aren’t robots, they’re not machines and they just want to help keep the wolves away from the sheep. I KNOW there’s people who don’t deserve to wear the badge but they’re SO VERY few and far between. It breaks my heart to see all this hatred and anger flying around. All it’s doing is encouraging more of the same.

If you’ve read this far, thank you for listening. I’m not gonna sit here and tell you that if you hate or don’t support one side or the other, to unfriend me and never speak to me again…I hope those are the people who come straight TO me. Because I’ll be more than happy to hug you and pray or meditate with you. I’ll be more than happy to listen to your concerns and let you vent and empathize with your feelings. But then I’ll encourage you to help me find a solution to end all this nonsense because if we’re not part of the solution, we’re part of the problem. Love to all of you. ALL OF YOU. We’re all SO much better than this.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️✌️❤️❤️❤️❤️✌️
