Aloha. I'm fresh out of 50 months in federal prison for operating The 
Hawaii Cannabis Ministry where we helped to prevent and treat pain, 
disease and spiritual disconnection. Just reporting, not complaining.

What a great and unexpected education I received in prison. Now, it's 
time for me to make some lemonade.

Please know that there are now multiple U.S. Patents for cannabinoids 
in the prevention and treatment of pain and disease including for 
cancer. Also, the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2012 was given to the 
study of the two main cannabinoid 'receptors' CB1 and CB2.

Fresh, fertile Cannabis hemp, or marijuana seeds, are reportedly the 
single healthiest food on Earth. Google and see the science for 
yourself. We need a polar shift in values right now from cannabis 
being illegal to essential for our health, wealth, happiness and 
overall well-being.

I attended a talk titled "Designing Novel Medications: The 
Endocannabinoid System as a Therapeutic Target" at the U.H. Cancer 
Center on Thursday, Oct. 16 by Dr. Alexandros Makriyannis, the 
Director for the Center of Drug Discovery at Northeastern University 
in Boston. I got to spend 5 to 10 minutes with the good doctor in 
private before the event.

Dr. Alex is a very nice guy, but his work is all about microscopes 
and molecules and completely misses all the simple, effective home 
remedies that can be made with fresh cannabis hemp, or marijuana.
