I am here to expose you to the most medicinal plant know to man, hemp. Medical miracles are a common occurrence when using cannabis oil derived from this specific medicinal plant.

RUN FROM THE CURE , The Rick Simpson Story

A film by Christian Laurette - After a serious head injury in 1997, Rick Simpson sought relief from his medical condition through the use of medicinal hemp oil. When Rick discovered that the hemp oil (with its high concentration of THC) cured cancers and other illnesses, he tried to share it with as many people as he could free of charge. He was able to help cure and control hundreds of people's illnesses but when the story went public, the long arm of the law snatched the medicine, leaving potentially thousands of people without their cancer treatments and leaving Rick with unconstitutional charges of possessing and trafficking marijuana.
