Suzanne Sherman aka The Red Hot Chilly Prepper and host of The Wasatch Report joins me today for a discussion about medical cannabis laws & how it can affect patients' rights to bear arms.  Most state cannabis laws don't provide protections from the federal government for patients who choose to exercise their rights to bear arms.  So a medical cannabis license holder or an adult use partaker cannot purchase a firearm from a local gun shop that is a Federal Firearms Licensee without lying on the Firearms Transaction Record form 4473.  Lying on this form is perjury and punishable by a prison sentence up to 5 years.  Until the states agree to protect cannabis users from federal gun overreach, users of cannabis - and particularly those with a medical card - are at risk of having their right to bear arms infringed by the Feds. But wait there's more!  We also touch on a range of topics like COVID-19, federal supremacy, nullification & civil asset forfeiture.  Today's episode is a veritable treasure trove of liberty related topics, but you might want to wear your steel toed boots.  Because Suzanne and I do a little toe stomping.

My jaw nearly hit the floor when Bridget Dandaraw-Serritt listed off her autoimmune disorders with - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, & Sjögren syndrome.  And per Bridget this is just the tip of the iceberg. Each of these ailments is debilitating in and of itself, but the combination of the above .  Using cannabis allowed her to get off of 9 prescription medications. Which is great because she was taking over 6,000 pills each year!  Cannabis has yielded her a plethora of other health benefits.  Her lupus is now in remission, and she lost 60 pounds once she got off all the prednisone.  Plant based medicine has been a huge boon for Bridget.

Join Bretigne Shaffer and I as we take a trip down the rabbit hole of medical freedom.  Bretigne is a longtime libertarian journalist, and she's a resident of California.  There has been a push in recent years in CA (and several states) to mandate vaccines for children.  And in some of those states there are no medical exemptions - even for kids who have had past reactions to vaccines (like our guest from Monday's show, Sarah).  This overstep by government is quite alarming to liberty lovers like myself and Bretigne.  So I wanted to discuss this issue and expand on some of the topics Sarah brought up in Monday's episode.  We hope to strip the emotion out of this subject and approach this issue like we do cannabis - on the basis of natural rights, bodily autonomy, and personal liberty.  I hope you'll join us on this little jaunt. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Sarah Morris first remembers blacking out when she was 5 years old, but she wasn't diagnosed with dysautonomia until almost 25 years later.  Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.  You know that system of the body that handles trivial things like  circulation, temperature regulation, digestion, etc.  And Sarah has had difficulty in all these areas.  She can get hypothermia in the middle of the summer in Georgia.  She has a Groshong line inserted into her vein to allow for easier access when she needs iv fluids, and she also has a lot of trouble with digestion.  Her body lives in a fight or flight state.  But cannabis helps ease her nausea and allows her to eat and gets her parasympathetic system to kick in so her adrenals are not in overdrive.   Cannabis allows her to be herself in spite of her many health issues.

Dwayne Bottoms told me something no one else has ever told me on the podcast - that he bought cannabis for medical use during a missions trip - with his pastor's blessing!  If that doesn't show you how times and attitudes are changing around cannabis I don't know what will. Dwayne began using cannabis a few years ago to treat his Parkinson's Disease instead of opioids replacement.  After almost losing his marriage, Dwayne decided it was time to kick his opiates for good, and he now uses cannabis and one pharmaceutical drug to treat his Parkinson's.  Parkinson's is a progressive disease, so it's an uphill battle for Dwayne.  But with the help of cannabis and his trusty sidekick, Ash, he's taking on this fight day by day.

Ted Metz went to see a dermatologist for what he thought was a rash.  Turns out it was a very aggressive squamous cell carcinoma.  Within a couple of months the small place behind his ear grew to the size of a peach.  After his diagnosis Ted started a routine of concentrated cannabis oil (Rick Simpson oil) while awaiting surgery.  The day before his surgery a large chunk of the tumor fell out.  Ted's surgery lasted about half the projected time, and the surgeons were able to easily find the edges of the tumor because it had started to die.  His RSO routine had definitely been working. Ted continued to medicate with cannabis post-surgery and during radiation which was excruciating.  His prognosis is good, and he's continuing to be an outspoken advocate for the plant.

Our nation has morphed from one founded upon the principles of life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness into a behemoth that routinely locks its citizens in cages over a plant and other victimless crimes.  Somewhere this nation clearly went off the rails.  For episode 100 I wanted to take a deep dive into the subject of Natural Rights and Common Law.  Who better to invite on to discuss those issues than an author who has more than 2,000,000 words published on the very subject?  So on a whim a few weeks ago I reached out to Richard J. Maybury via his publishing company, and to my delight I received an email from his wife a couple of days later asking me when I'd like to schedule a time to chat with him.  I was on cloud nine when I got her email, and today, I'm thrilled to air the discussion Richard and I had about his book Whatever Happened to Justice which explains in detail the concepts of natural rights and common law and how our current legal system has gone awry. I hope you enjoy episode 100, and I hope you come away from our discussion more well informed on this very important topic.  Full show notes can be found at www.cannabishealsme.com/100  Help us get these stories out to more people!  Become a Patron http://www.patreon.com/chmpodcast  Rate/review us on your podcast app  Tell THREE people about the show every week --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Karen Gray of Scotland had to break  the law in the United Kingdom to get cannabis medicine for her 6 year  old son.  Doctors had tried every prescription medication under the sun  to help control Murray’s seizures, and they just seemed to get worse.   His seizures ran the gamut – from absconce to myclonic to tonic clonic  to drop seizures.  At the time of administering cannabis oil to Murray  he was lying in a hospital bed unresponsive.  Karen had traveled to  Holland to get prescription grade very low THC cannabis oil for him.   She dosed Murray with the oil unbeknownst to his doctors who would have  had to take the oil from her and report her to the authorities.  After  Murray’s release from the hospital and feeling emboldened by the success  they’d seen, Karen decided to purchase a cannabis oil with more THC – a  20:1 ratio of CBD to THC, respectively.  After switching Murray’s  medication he has been seizure free since June of 2019.  Unfortunately for the Gray family  the UK’s National Health System does not cover the cost of Murray’s  plant based medicine, so the family spends 1400 pounds PER MONTH for his  medication.

As a longtime listener of the Dangerous History podcast my ears perked up when host CJ Killmer did an episode on Harry Anslinger.  Knowing his propensity to take deep dives into subjects & historical figures I was surprised that episode was only an hour long.  So I invited him on the show to expound on his episode a bit and talk about the man behind the initial war on cannabis.  Full disclosure.  We may have gotten side tracked and talked about economic policy, central planning, US foreign adventurism and civil liberties.  Ya know.  Just run of the mill libertarian stuff.  Enjoy!

Monica Perez joins me to discuss a documentary from 2006 - AKA Tommy Chong.  She had watched the movie a few years ago and discussed it on her blog, but I just recently watched it.  We talked about the documentary and Operation Pipe Dreams - the sting operation that the federal government used to ensnare Tommy Chong.  Monica and I discuss how the Feds targeted Tommy because he came to fame doing the Cheech and Chong stoner movies and "glamorized" cannabis use.  The movie is a startling reminder that if the government wants to make an example of you they'll spare no stolen resource in order to do so.

Elizabeth Futch is a medical refugee.  Like too many ailing Texans she had to leave her family and friends so that she could get legal access to plant medicine in Colorado.  Elizabeth was so debilitated by her fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis that she could barely walk.  Today she is hiking mountains and helping her husband run his welding business.  But her heart yearns for the day she can return home to her loved ones and her farm in rural East Texas.  I know you'll agree with us that Texans should not have to leave home to get access to medical cannabis!
