The Saga of Rick Simpson's Attempt to Cure with Cannabis Oil
by Paul Fassa
(The Best Years in Life) A few years ago, a small Canadian community's success with curing cancer naturally was crushed, forcing its provider into exile in Europe. Rick Simpson had discovered a cure for himself and then had shared it at no cost with others in the small rural town of Maccan, Nova Scotia.
Canada provides a tax based single-payer medical system. So paying for mainstream treatments was not the issue. Since the medical monopoly's treatments rarely cure and have nasty side effects, efficacy without side effects was the only issue.
Rick offered results without side effects, and the Maccan residents took advantage. The results were amazing with even cancer patients. There are always problems promoting alternative cures. But here was an additional obstacle. The cure was hemp oil with the illegal substance THC.
This was the beginning of the recent surge of cannabis oil used successfully for cancer, Crohn's Disease, children's chronic epileptic seizures, and other ailments. This oil is much more potent medically than smoking or even vaporizing cannabis, and it's not just for “getting high”.
Rick Simpson experienced a head injury at work in 1997. Afterward he was afflicted with a severe post concussion syndrome. He was put on pharmaceuticals, which created dysfunctional side effects. He heard about the medical benefits of marijuana. So Rick purchased a bag and began smoking daily.
Eventually, both the post concussion syndrome and the pharmaceutical drug fog vanished completely. Rick's doctor discouraged him from smoking. So Rick decided on growing his own THC hemp and extracting the oil from whole plants. He reduced a pound of plants by slow boiling in a solution to get a small tube of thick THC concentrated oil.
Soon after he began, Rick was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma. After one of the three cancers was removed surgically, it came back. So he decided to try the THC laden hemp oil topically. Within days, all three skin cancers were completely healed. Rick deduced that THC hemp oil cured cancer, but smoking marijuana would not.
So Rick began sharing the hemp oil within his community without charging. Everyone experienced remarkable improvement by taking a drop orally twice daily or applying it topically. Rick Dwyer, the manager of the local Royal American Legion branch was very impressed. His father's terminal lung cancer was cured in weeks after the medicos had sent him home to die.
Quickly the word was out locally about Simpson's THC hemp oil. Several others were cured or greatly benefited without side effects from a variety of serious ailments, including cancer, heart disease, and MS.
Then both Ricks decided there should be town meetings in the Legion hall about the THC hemp oil, and that they would see what to do about spreading the word. Naively, they wanted the world to know about this natural cure.
The Consequence of Healing
The publicity from a curious Canadian media raised enough of a stir for the Legion to close the Maccan branch and fire Rick Dwyer as the local manager. Then the locals became concerned about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RMPC) clamping down on Rick Simpson's life saving operation.
So Rick Simpson went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to acquire legal exemption for using his oil as medical marijuana. He took 14 dozen sworn affidavits from those he had helped in Maccan. But those affidavits were disregarded and his request was turned down. Nine months later he appealed to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court.
This time, Rick had ten cured citizens and six doctors present to testify. Their testimonies were not even allowed. His appeal was rejected, and his little local operation of supplying free cannabis cures was threatened. Slowly it dawned on him that it wasn't just the legal system that prevented natural cannabis cures.
Rick Simpson realized that the cancer industry is focused on treating, not curing, for high profits. Monopoly medicine and Big Pharma's concern for maintaining a massive cash flow have been the prime motive for keeping all natural cures down.
Fortunately, minor variations of his oil are being produce in legal medical marijuana states. And there are a few individuals who produce the oil that can send it to others safely.
