PATIENTS DENIED RIGHTS DEMAND THE REPEAL OF PROHIBITION
NCPW maintains that the United States Federal Government has illegally denied patients' constitutional rights, guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to equal protection by the law. By providing cannabis for medical treatment since 1978 and by allowing states to give legal access to some, while others suffer and fight for the same access, is inhumane.
Webster's Dictionary shows the following information for inhuman:
: very fierce or cruel
: having or showing no interest in individual people or their feelings;
lacking emotional warmth
Our government has done lengthy studies, including the Shafer Commission Report which was requested by President Richard M. Nixon, and the LaGuardia Committee Report on Marijuana prepared by the New York Academy of Medicine, on behalf of a commission appointed in 1939 by New York Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia. Every study suggests that cannabis is safer than most other drugs, should be legal, and would be beneficial in many ways to the patients. Many new studies are showing that ingesting cannabis and or its extracts can prevent diabetes, Alzheimer's, and many other diseases and health problems. http://cannabismedicaldictionary.com. Yet the government that paid for the studies hide and deny those very results, keeping cannabis in the Schedule I classification, with drugs, including heroin, cocaine, LSD, and stating that cannabis has "no medical value." Yet, no death, to date, has been directly linked to the ingestion or the smoking of cannabis.
"Schedule I substances are those that have the following characteristics: (a) the drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse, (b) the drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, (c) there is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision. No prescriptions may be written for Schedule I substances."
The first medical cannabis patients sued for "medical necessity." We feel that, due to the fact that cannabis could cure cancer and studies have proven that cannabis helps with many illnesses and their symptoms, access to cannabis is a necessity for every patient that could benefit from its consumption.
Sadly, though we tried, we were not afforded the right to sue. We still fight daily to change Federal Cannabis legislation. Please sign up below for important updates
