ADD, ADHD, Autism & Alcoholism: Fake Lethal Therapy & Rich Doctors

Patients use it because it is successful, NOT because it is addicting and if they run out they do NOT have serious withdrawal.

Marijuana bud

(MOLALLA, Ore.) - You should not wonder at the title, but it is based on facts. Specialty months-long expensive clinics have advertised to guarantee cures for all of them.

I’ll start with the first three. Medical Marijuana doctors in California found out almost by accident that cannabis/marijuana helped (ameliorated!) these young patients making them tractable enough to be near normal, a blessing for overwrought mothers and fathers.

There are very many “hard shell” Physicians, Psychiatrists in particular and also Clinical Psychologists, whatever that is supposed to mean, and even Clinical Social Workers (that really is a stretch) who believe the HOGWASH spewed by the government and especially the drug companies.

They both laud Ritalin and Amphetamines in many forms for ADD, et cetera, even with the knowledge that all of them have caused many deaths and the adverse effects are almost as bad as the diseases and sometimes worse.

One of the main uses of cannabis/marijuana (c/mj) medicines up to 1900, was to get patients OFF Opium, alcohol and tobacco and it was very successful, having much less of an addiction liability.

Patients use it because it is successful, NOT because it is addicting and if they run out they do NOT have serious withdrawal.

I have had many ADD mothers email to me stories of their successes with c/mj brownies.

This information was found on PTSD Leveque or PTSD and Marijuana as SHOW SYNOPSIS.




Portions of this article have been removed as the information was incorrect. For the record, Promises Treatment Center was wrongly named as the company in question, instead of Passages Treatment Center of Malibu, California and Chris Prentiss. Passages Treatment Center advertises on television and sells a book called The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure, which Dr. Leveque intended to take to task in this article.

Unfortunately, Dr. Sack and Promises Treatment Center were inadvertently named instead.

Our sincere apologies for the mistake to Promises Treatment Center, and to Dr. Sack specifically.

I'm glad there's SOMEBODY (in the media) telling the truth about this safe, effective, natural medicine. All kinds of lies abound, spewed by lobbyists for Alchohol, Tobacco, Big Pharmaceutical, Petrochemical, and Prison/Industrial Complex interests, to name a few. Thanks Dr. Phil, and Salem-News for printing the REAL deal; the unequivocal truth. So many lives can be improved, even saved, by this incredible plant's cannabinoids, which have evolved in synch with our own bodies' endocannabinoid systems for the mutual benefit of both the plants and humans smart enough to make use of them.
