Back in the 80’s I had the great privilege of touring a lab at the University of The west Indies, where two reknowned and acclaimed professors, Drs. Manley West And Albert Lockhart extracted an enzyme from marijuana they call canasol. This medicine allegedly worked like magic against glaucoma, a disease of the eye causing blindness.
The story goes that an old Rasta man was their subject of study who used marijuana in everything from tea to stew, and of course the most popular, smoking. This individual we were told was able to describe the details of a ship passing on the horizon from his perch on a hilltop, down to the letters on the ships side. This was a feat that people with otherwise perfect vision couldn’t do. To add insult to injury this man was well over eighty years old. And of course he could run like Elijah. He boasted good health and had never seen a doctor in is life.
When we were touring this lab, regrettable it was its last parradus as under firm instructions it was been dissolved under governmental instructions that had bowed to the opposing philosophies that marijuana was bad for you. The professors lamented that finally they had a medicine that was relatively inexpensive to produce. Another important variable was that the raw material grows over the island prolificly, and creates an abundance of supply to corner the world market in preventing and curing glaucoma.
It is noteworthy that hey never advocated the smoking of the weed but endorsed it as a plant that could cure not only glaucoma, but many other ailments too as other medicines were apparent and ready to be extracted.
Any way the Sheriff shot that idea and killed the tree before it could grow. (click for more information on Canasol, Manley and Lockhart)
Notice my cynical approach to this article entitled HEALTH DISCOVERIES (SO WHAT!). I say so what, because there are so many health discoveries in our time that are much more beneficial to us, but the powers that be killed them all. So what... as I throw my hands up in hopelessness. So what… as the world will never know. So what… the populace is just a commodity to be used for the bigger conglomerates with money to lobby and sell poison and hide these secrets. So what… for these health discoveries that can kill cure and eradicate certain diseases from the common cold to cancers, who cares!
It is never my intention to correct this Majestic Injustice of putting the wool over the people’s eyes, that if you can’t pop a pill you can’t be made well. I can only help maybe someone some of the time. We probably deserve this too; the proliference of ill health and big multi dollar corporations to sell us pills and potions. Ever since our decision to go with the Wicked One we have put our existence in a tail spin that only the Almighty One can correct. So it will have to take a “total destruction for a solution” (See Bob Marley song) as “no one can stop them now”.
The destiny then is total destruction for a system, confirmed by the teachings of Jehovah. In the meantime though see what you can do to perpetrate good health to you and your family.
