The topic of legalizing currently-illegal drugs is a difficult, complex subject that many are finding should be more carefully analyzed with the end result of changes being made to current laws. IF this story is true (like many other cannabis-healing stories have proven to be) then we have a huge problem, the solution to which is being strongly headed off by pharmaceutical companies and ordinary citizens who have been trained to believe that "all illegal drugs are bad and have no place in our society".
That being said, I am not convinced that our drug-related problems would magically disappear if all drugs were made "legal" and I am not a proponent of such. However, we have to understand and believe that all life forms on this planet were placed here by God for a reason and their applications on our behalf can be used for good just as they can be misused for evil. Being treated with Cannabis oil is NOT the same as smoking pot and we have to get off the stupid train and start working toward changing laws that will allow us to embrace more alternative treatments to illness and disease that stand to threaten the pharmaceutical companies.
As a living child of God, I have every right to pursue whatever treatments and therapies that I see fit without having to worry about being arrested, tried before a jury of sheeple who have no understanding of jury nullification and locked up for the rest of my sick life.
This is one of those movements we should seriously consider putting our support behind, but it should be done wisely so as to maintain our morals, values and respect to our precious bodies, which are surely a gift from God.

A young boy named Landon Riddle was diagnosed with Leukemia, and was told by his doctors that he only had an 8-10% chance of living for more than a day or two.
“His whole chest was full of leukemia tumors, which is why he couldn’t breathe. They started him on chemo, but told us that he probably wasn’t going to make it,” his mother, Sierra Riddle said.
After two months of Chemotherapy, Landon became sick and would refuse to eat. According to his mother, he would vomit up to 50 times a day, and the doctors eventually lost hope, seeing no other solution than Chemotherapy.
Then one day, Landon’s grandmother suggested that they look into cannabis oil treatment.
“We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as the piled on drug after drug. Then my mother came across cannabis oil online,” Riddle told RYOT.
The family then fled the state of Utah for Colorado, where cannabis oil treatment was legal.
In just days, Landon began vomiting less and less each day and finally began to eat.
“Our hearts were filled with joy that cannabis brought back the smile to Landon’s face. Landon started getting better and better! It was as if a miracle had happened! He was smiling again and started to eat again!” Sierra wrote on her blog during his treatment.
“It is atrocious that anyone on the planet would be charged for choosing cannabis over pharmaceuticals. My heart goes out to Adam Koessler and Rumor Rose, along with uncountable other families that are affected by cannabis prohibition. Get ready for the fight of your life. Having a sick child is a battle in itself, but making this choice is a whole new world. You’re going to need thick skin, intuition, and a solid team. Don’t waste time making sure every other pharmaceutical does more harm than good. If it feels wrong in your gut, it’s probably wrong,” she added.
Now, Landon’s cancer is in remission.
