Medical cannabis laws are unique — your back pain may qualify for medical marijuana use in one state and not in another. Every state has their own unique set of laws which define what condition you must have before the state will write a prescription, or arrest you.

After searching through various state laws I found just one state that allowed diabetic patients to use medical cannabis legally, Florida.

African Americans are 1.7 times more likely to have diabetes as non-Hispanic whites.

State arrest records have long shown blacks are 3X more likely to be arrested for simple possession. Black Americans, as a percentage of population, consume marijuana at a proportional rate to white Americans.

The March 2006  American Journal of Pathology Study, conducted at the Medical College of Virginia, showed rats treated with cannabis (from 1-4 weeks) experienced protection from diabetic retinopathy (a condition characterized by retinal oxygen deprivation and a breakdown of the blood-retinal barrier, is the leading cause of blindness in working age adults).

A 5-milligram daily injection of cannabis significantly reduced the incidence of diabetes in mice. Marijuana use also delayed the onset of diabetes.

    Oh the “unbearable WHITENESS of cannabis legislation.” So last millenium…

    No one buys into that RACISM cover-up of reality anymore.. do they? seriously? who they kidding?

    As more & more EVIDENCE-BASED SCIENCE comes to light, people are realizing they’ve been LIED to by their OWN government and the reasons why are even MORE disturbing & shocking than any a dope-deal ever was…

    We now know that CANNABIS PROHIBITION is actually a RUSE for modern-day $SLAVERY$ which IS a CAPITAL OFFENCE – as it constitutes a form of TREASON against America’s hard-fought & WON Emancipation Proclamation…. it is a betrayal of the civil rights movement.

    so pretty much from the legislators to the courts, the lawyers, social workers, prison guards, prison engineering construction firms, anyone & any corporation that profit$ from “prison” as a “social policy” and anyone else involved in cannabis prohibition IN FACT is GUILTY of COLLUSION, of AIDING & ABETTING the CRIME of modern-day SLAVERY and it is INDICTABLE with far MORE severe penalties than any black kid caught with a gram or two…

    …but that will never happen right? Only Time will tell…

    So long as the phoney “war on drugs” is waged… SLAVERY in America is alive & well and in CONTEMPT of its own Constitution’s Emancipation Proclamation… and that, to me, is what modern-day TREASON looks like.

    “Remember everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.”

    “Legal” doesn’t make it right, honest or good… but apparently any fool can make it so.
