Medical Marijuana: Best for Anxiety and Anguish

Marijuana is a safe, effective sedative/tranquilizer.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Bonnie King, Dr. Leveque There is a massive amount of vastly different medications for PTSD, most of which make no pharmacological sense at all and obviously most did not work.

In my Sep 10, 2013 article, I compared psychological therapy to pharmaceutical therapy. The only information which was divulged was that cannabis/marijuana therapy was better than either psychological or pharmacological non-cannabis/marijuana therapy.

Wrongful Deaths at the VA: VA Pays $200 Million in Malpractice Claims

If the "troops" are so important, why does it take the US Gov't so long to act?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - VA hospitals When the wrongful death malpractice claims at the Phoenix V.A. Hospital hit the news it was all about Phoenix...Phoenix...Phoenix with 40 dead veterans waiting for a diagnosis, not even medical care, which would have prolonged or saved their lives. The report includes information from about 175 VA Hospitals and found that almost all of them had dozens of inadequate care and wrongful deaths. All of this should NOT be happening!

The V.A. has paid out a high amount for their medical malpractice claims but it seems to feel that it is someone else's money. None of the malpractice doctors have paid out a cent which seems to be a gross and bad disincentive!

Butane Hash Oil: What`s Going On?

BHO is the new way to medicate for many

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - BHO vaporizer Many marijuana patients are using a new process for extracting the Cannabinoids from marijuana, but some don’t seem to completely understand the safety requirements of the use of Butane for extraction.

First of all, Butane is highly volatile. Much more so than gasoline, and it is also much more explosive if there is any kind of a spark or flame nearby. This could be a gas water heater, or anything with a pilot light, or someone taking a few tokes from a joint.

The VA Medical Death Trap: A scandalous record of drug abuse

Marijuana should be the drug of choice. MEDICAL MARIJUANA COULD HAVE SAVED THESE VETERANS YEARS OF PAIN AND TURMOIL.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - PTSD The recent reports of “drug wait lists” for Veterans seeking VA medical care is egregious beyond understanding for Veterans who were willing to sacrifice their bodies, minds and lives for the 99% of American people who, for some reason, do not seem to understand or care for the plight of the 1% which is the number of Veterans who wore the uniform and faced the cruel enemy which is BATTLE.

The New York Times printed several articles delineating the cruel consequences of battle and the worst features of inadequate or dangerous medical care of Veterans of current and previous wars.

VA Medical Malpractice with Death: They are killing our Veterans!

Are our VA hospitals equal to NAZI death camps?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - American flag A recent expose’ of at least 40 medical malpractice deaths at the Phoenix Arizona VA hospital brings to the forefront the fact that VA medical care is more dangerous than combat itself.

My first article about this subject was published on Salem-News.com Feb 26, 2009, “VA Malpractice with Veterans and President Obama”, with the hope of alerting whoever might be in charge, but nothing appears to have happened except for many more expose’s and articles about the obscene reports of millions in financial payouts such as the recent report from the Dayton, Ohio Daily News which posted “VA Malpractice payouts hits a 10-year high”.

Marijuana: Good for Mental Diseases

40,000,000 patients say “Yes”

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - marijuana medicine There appears to be a great controversy about whether Marijuana/Cannabis is beneficial for mental disease or if it is really harmful.

One thing I noticed is that if a research physician or group wants to get a huge grant from a federal anti-marijuana agency, is for them to have the word marijuana near the words “drug abuse” or “dangers”. For this, there are hundreds of studies and/or articles.

PTSD: The Other Ultimate Sacrifices And Marijuana

Is there any limit to what Veterans must endure? Where is the "support for troops" now?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Dr. Phil Leveque PTSD I have nothing but honor and utmost respect for the 300,000 of my fellow dogfaces in WWII who died so that I could write these stories honoring them.

I was committed to combat late in WWII, but many in my company and my battalion whom I knew well were killed, many just in front of me. It is an eerie feeling just to remember “there but by the grace of God, go I”. This happened too often when I was in a combat zone but for only about three months. I even get those feelings today, 68 years later. This is PTSD.

PTSD: Anxiety, Fear and Anguish

One dictionary said “depression is sadness”, if that is so, PTSD is cancer of the soul.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Suicide sadness “Marijuana works best,” say combat Veterans. I base this statement from my experience with hundreds of Vietnam veterans who discovered that C/MJ worked better than any other medicine given them by the medics for “battle terrors”, and its sequel, PTSD.

The military, especially the owners of the combat infantryman, have been calling PTSD “depression”. I researched many websites to see if I could find a medical definition. What I found was seemingly unlimited advertising for anti-depressant drugs which did not offer signs nor symptoms of depression.

Autism, ADD, ADHD;
Marijuana Therapy VS Dangerous Lethal Drugs

Adderall, Dexedrine, Vyvanse, Concerta, Strattera, and Ritalin are the deadly culprits.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Cannabis/Marijuana The New York Times just published a new big article on December 15th, 2013 about the extreme dangers of this type of medicine and the repugnant, craven quakes who make millions of dollars advocating for and writing prescriptions for these drugs.

These actions have boosted sales from $2 Billion to $8 Billion a year in the last 10 years. And in the process have produced many Multi-Millionaire Doctors.

Marijuana: Does it Cause Men to Grow Boobs?
How about women?

Man-boobs, or "moobs"... C'mon, it's the munchies, not the marijuana!

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - candy bars I was astonished to read this in the Oregonian (Dec-4 2013) from the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Oregonian is notorious for printing this adverse garbage. In the same edition was a story about the lack of good, anti-nausea medications.

It is well-known by anyone who reads that marijuana is one of the best anti-nausea medications, better than the two standard medications mentioned in the article: Dramamine, which is really Benadril, and Zofran, which only works about half of the time. Cannabis/Marijuana (C/MJ) is the best drug for nausea and vomiting.

Flickering candle

Dr. Phil Leveque (RIP) - USA

Salem-News.com Medical Expert/Staff Writer

In a unique segment, Salem-News.com brings viewers the words and wisdom of one of Oregon's most famous doctors, Dr. Phillip Leveque, a man who fought in World War Two and fought to make access to marijuana a matter of reality. He was instrumental in the initial changing of Oregon law that allowed medical the use of Medical Marijuana in the first place.

He was a fighter since his days in the Army during World War Two, when he captured 26 Nazi officers in a single day by himself. More recently, this veteran physician fought for the rights of patients who use marijuana as a medicine and for veterans suffering from PTSD, something he was no stranger to.

The world is changing fast and medical marijuana is a daily reality for thousands of patients in Oregon, and hundreds of thousands of people nationwide who suffer from a variety of illnesses.

But who can pot smokers turn to for medical care? Needless to say, a vast majority of users are hesitant to discuss their use with physicians, and doctors are fearful when it comes to discussing a substance that potentially violates the law.

Federal laws still consider possession of pot illegal, even though states and individual counties have adopted their own standards. Because of the federal shadow cast on the situation, hundreds of thousands of legal users and millions of illegal users, go without adequate medical advice.

We are extremely proud that we were able to bring Dr. Leveque's expertise to our readers. This lifelong healer and former WWII combat soldier was on our primary team of writers at Salem-News.com for 8 years.

We lost Dr. Phil Leveque on May 2, 2015, but his works live on through our pages and beyond. We are forever in his debt for sharing his worldly views on so many topics, and enlightening us all.
