Granny Storm Crow's MMJ Reference List- July 2010
This is my third year of sharing "Granny's list" with all of you. Last year, I told you "How this list came about." This year, it's "Why you should be sharing my list!"
From 60 pages, a symbolic celebration of my then 60 years on Earth, my list has grown to an equally symbolic 420 pages of links, in hopeful anticipation of it's re-legalization in California this fall and the dawning of medical freedom in other states.
Hundreds of studies about cannabis and how it heals- and all were done in an environment of "strong discouragement" on the part of the US government. How large my collection would be if research into this healing herb had been unrestricted? What would we know if we could have researched during those 70- odd years of prohibition?
As a medicine, cannabis is potentially invaluable- this collection is ample proof of that! From stopping hiccups, to halting breast cancer's terrible spread, cannabis works! But there are still too many "may"s and "might"s when it comes to cannabis. We need more solid research, which will not, and cannot, happen until cannabis is legalized and rescheduled.
When I began using cannabis medically over 40 years ago, there was no such thing as "medical use"; not even the concept existed! Education has made the difference. Somewhere along the line, every one of the people who have voted to legalize medical use in their state, learned that cannabis was an effective medicine, perhaps from a relative's use, or from a program they saw, or a study they read. They learned the truth.
In a Canadian survey of doctors, a majority admitted that most of what they knew about cannabis came from their patients! They had learned only the "government line" in medical school. That was in Canada, where medical use is federally legal! So how much does your doctor really know about cannabis? My list gives you a way to educate him.
And you shouldn't stop with your doctor. Local city councilmen and commissioners have the power to ban dispensaries through local ordinances. It is easier to educate them before it's an issue. They need the medical facts about cannabis to make logical decisions!
We all know someone who has diabetes, fibro, cancer or MS. They shouldn't have to suffer, physically, financially, or legally, for using an herbal medicine. One they could easily grow if sane cannabis laws were in place. Home-grown is cheaper than any pill!
Cannabis, with its remarkable safety record, should be the first medicine tried, not be the medicine of last resort! It is only by educating others, that we can bring cannabis back into mainstream medicine where it belongs. Please share the facts about cannabis with those around you, and back them up with medical studies from my list.
The simple truth is "Cannabis heals". And as my wise old grandfather once said,
"If the truth won't do, then something is wrong!"
OK, have at it! Grammar errors, spelling errors, awkward sentences- don't pull your punches! I want the feedback! The upcoming "Summer 2010 list" should be as close to perfect as possible! We've got lots of minds, and elections, to win this year!

It is a collection of studies on MMJ as a medicine is it not?
I think you should nail that point home... in your sentence that starts:
Hundreds of studies about cannabis and how it heals-
Should be more like: "Grannies list contains hundreds of studies about cannabis and how it heals"
Other then that the only other critique I have is I would of liked to see hyperlinks when you mention your previous two introductions.
Keep up the good work, I love what your are doing here, GP is a great place!

The new list will be available to everyone in a couple of weeks. It's going to be a mere 420 pages of links for all of you to share with your friends, family, doctors, and politicians! We have some elections to win this fall and lots of minds need educating!

I'm changing the intro on my list and this is what I have. Since I am always worried about the quality of my writing, I would appreciate your honest opinions of this piece.
