Road Trip: In Search of Good Medicine - Pure Life, West L.A.

Posted on  January 18, 2013 by  News Admin

  On the heels of continued raids by the DEA of four legally run dispensaries in Los Angeles, West L.A. dispensary owner Yamileth Bolanos is pretty much at the end of her Hemp rope, so to speak. Bolanos, who is founder and owner of Pure Life Wellness, has been at the forefront of cannabis activism in the city of Los Angeles, where recently dispensaries were threatened with closure by city officials. With the creation of GLACA, the "Greater Los Angeles Cannabis Alliance," Bolanos, with other longtime dispensary owners, banded together to create their own entity in order to deal with the powers that be, driven by the philosophy that "strength in numbers" matter. "We founded GLACA in 2006 to help create ordinances on how dispensaries should behave, because the city would not instate ordinances until 2010," Bolanos said. "Those who were operating safely and were respectful of their neighbors needed a way to differentiate from profiteers who did not care about patient safety, or were otherwise problematic in their behavior." Gangsta Land Visits to a few Los Angeles area dispensaries had this savvy dispensary patient concerned, as the environment in some definitely had a little too laid back feeling, in my humble opinion. Rumor has it an Armenian faction - a strong demographic in the Los Angeles area - has a corner of the city's cannabis market. But in my mind, any product that has the capacity to make a good deal of income would attract a business-minded, entrepreneurial faction...

Cannabis and Pain: Soothing a Soft Society

Posted on  November 14, 2012 by  News Admin

  Knee surgery this past week has me thinking about pain, true tolerance, and why so many Americans are bent on being anesthetized.  The Institute of Medicine states, 100 million Americans suffer from some kind of pain at a cost of $635 billion a year. ABC News reported in January of 2012, 80 percent of the world's pain meds are consumed in the good old U.S. of A. Experts site our increased life expectancy, cancers, and a soft, sedentary lifestyle as the cause, but what of the rest of the world? Why are Americans suffering so? Or are we? Got Pain? Virginia Woolf, who suffered from mental illness that eventually caused her to end her life, said that people in pain are "forced to coin words himself, and, taking his pain in one hand, and a lump of pure sound in the other (as perhaps the inhabitants of Babel did in the beginning), so to crush them together that a brand new word in the end drops out." In other words, a person's pain is their own and relative to their experience, and putting a meter on it is illusive at best.  Growing up in the 1960s and 70s, I only remember simple aspirin as a remedy for everything from headaches to fevers. And really, even aspirin wasn't always the answer, as a headache could be quelled with a glass of water and nap - it still can, but most today run to the medicine cabinet for a pill. Medicine...

Cannabis Cures Cancer: Look At Me, I'm Cancer Free!

Posted on  October 29, 2012 by  News Admin

  After just a few weeks of ingesting raw cannabis and taking Nternal oil at night, the spider-web-like mass found in my left breast during both a mammogram and subsequent ultra-sound, was nowhere to be found during the first scheduled biopsy.  While there was still a target point for a biopsy, and the oncologist wanted to proceed, I made a deal and bought another month of time. I continued to ingest a green drink made with cannabis in a blender daily, and began ingesting RSO (Rick Simpson Oil), also known as Phoenix Tears, nightly. During the second scheduled biopsy one month later, the "target point" was gone, with the attending physician declaring, "No biopsy needed." Technical Error The attending ultrasound technician (also attending during the first scheduled biopsy) wrote it off as a "technical error" on the part of both the initial mammogram technician and the ultra-sound technician prior. The thing is, as written in the two previous essays, I too saw the spider-web-like mass with my own eyes, peering over both technicians shoulders. I remember saying to the mammogram technician, "Wow, that looks like a spider-web," not having done the research yet, and being unaware of what Lobular Carcinoma looked like.  Sadly, the medical community's hands are tied when it comes to acknowledging cannabis as a cure for cancer. As long as our federal government has it scheduled with heroin, including it in its miserably failed "War On Drugs," how can they?  60 Grams In 90 Days Just after...
