  • Audio is horrid. How unprofessional

  • Half been seeking help to get medical marijuana. I have medical records and been seeing different psychiatrist . I live in the Marianas Islands. I really need help. Thank you for time and consideration.

  • Kudos to Dr. Gupta…a true American hero for exposing the hypocrisy and injustice perpetrated by the U S government. It's actually criminal what the government has done – from denying people medication to jailing those who would take that risk and use it regardless of 'scheduling!'

    Here, I must take strong exception to the gent who spoke about pharma corporations aggressively pursuing natural, plant-based medications because he's ignoring the history of big-pharma. It doesn't take much effort to learn that it was J D Rockefeller, who despised homeopathy, and Andrew Carnage, who essentially highjacked the U S medical schools with endowments and structural donations. This, in order to pave the way for pharmaceutical companies to produce petroleum-base "medications" through the fractional distillation of crude oil – the waste byproducts from his other cash-cow, Standard Oil. This history shows that it IS the patentability, and therefor profitability*, of drugs which is of utmost importance because the end result is a molecule *synthesized and patented from petroleum, but first found and studied in NATURE. We're still paying for the greed of the Robber Barrons of the last century; and the corruptibility of politicians of the same era, and THAT story needs to be told (lookin' at you, Dr. Gupta!)…too many people are dying from the horrific side effects of these "patent(ed) medications."

    I have to wonder – if the FDA (which is funded some 45% by pharma companies) was founded to protect the public from "snake-oil" medicines, at what point does it all come full-circle when today's "medicine" causes the likes of 'tears in the intestinal tract,' 'genital gangrene,' 'cancers,' and even DEATH?!

  • Never knew anyone who detrimentally used cannabis; it was always alcohol or mixing things. Legalize cannabis for medical purposes!

  • Never met one person who did a single harmful thing on cannabis it was always alcohol or mixing things

  • Ok. I can't hear or read that fast. I would have liked to hear his findings.

  • NO REASON WHY THIS PLANT SHOULD BE ILLIGAL, were at a point where we just have to explain its legitimacy to the world that's blind to its potential. now we have to wait on science to make records set in stone so the gov and world can know what to go by.

  • Can you please upload again with an updated version with better sound

  • They don't mention the magic term everyone should know…" endocannabinoid system!" That's what this whole thing is about…

  • If you were trying to keep us from hearing this you failed. I held it to my ear and heard the whole thing . ha

  • hemp act of 2018, DR you are incorrect, the plant IS 50 STATE LEGAL, as is CBD

  • It cures Cancer DR, I left $cca in 2020 and haven't looked back CML is a HOAX ,, 500 Mg CBD Isolate, what does a decade of TKI's do to your brain?

  • another establishment token that's never n probably won't ever smoke weed in his life. trash that used to tow the line on weed, now that there's money, the trash does a 180

  • One thing I would like to ask dr Gupta is would it work for me with hemi facial spasms I’m 84yrs old.

  • Not loud enough you should use a mike

  • I have always used SCIENCE in everything I do. This is why everything I say or do is in the 'ball park'. Having a badly damaged brain sure slowed me down but has also given me a different 'perspective' in life.
    I am asking please help me LORD;
    FOOTBALL players need to be "eating" THC-A that protects and heals the brain, not INTOXICATING.
    I was addicted to pain killers from emergency disc removal in my neck. Stopped cold turkey and drank to relieve pain. This is why I wrecked.
    This has become a "SPIRITUAL FIGHT" !
    Okay, I am going to try telling everyone why I push so hard to legalize growing. I don't care if you believe me. I already have been ahead of science.
    What I need is to have CANNABIS be my main diet, eat no meat. I have seen this in "meditation".
    Everything I have listened to has been right so why stop ?
    I received a registered 5.5 brain injury on 08-30-2008.
    I not only know WHO I am, but "WHY" I am !
    I am from a LONG LINE of HEALERS Black Elk is my great great grandfather.
    ~ HEAL EARTH ~ On 08-30-2008 I had the worst motor bike wreck with no helmet on to survive in MONTANA. I died 3 times in life flight. It crushed my chest breaking all my ribs many times, putting ribs into both lungs. I was in an 87. day coma, waking with a registered 5.5 brain injury. I was told that THC saved my brain from lack of oxygen. Smoking MARIJUANA is opening my airway to accept oxygen. But the biggest is that MARIJUANA is HEALING my brain
    ~ It is THC-A that gives my brain what is needed to MAKE new CELLS.
    ~ MARIJUANA was used to make HEMP illegal.~
    ~ It can HEAL humans, humanity, economy, EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE ~ CARBONS are killing clouds. HENRY FORD proved that "oil" fuel exhaust made them in 1927. That is why he made 60,000 cars run on HEMP fuel in 1942, with 0 carbon output.
    It has been EARTHS health !
    HEMP takes 4 times the CARBONS to grow than trees.
    HEMP revitalized the SOIL.
    HEMP puts off more OXYGEN than tree.

  • Medical Cannabis and a Good Diet are a medical necessity for all those of us who have been innocently and ignorantly consuming such hard to avoid Mitochondrial Poisonous Polyunsaturated Vegetable Oils in our diets and got one or more of many more modern thus Metabolically Caused Diseases and CANCERS. These barely existed before about 1900 when industrially manufactured Vegetable Seed Oils and foods started becoming available. You need to exclude all manufactured snacks, takeaways, restaurant fried and manufactured foods to avoid all these vegetable oils. The ideal solution for ultimate healthy longevity is to go fully VEGAN and take Cannabis Supplementation to boost your damaged Endocannabinoid System until you are better (maybe 2 years or so) while getting all vegetable seed extract, typical industrially refined cooking oils out of your diet. You can certainly use some polysaturated animal food-based oil/fat as in all animal products if you are not quite so ill or worried about living as long and remaining perfectly healthy. Best luck from your optimally self reeducated and friendly family GP Dr David who wants to see you be actually cured of all the modern diseases that are definitely so dietary-based in origin.

  • If you think the government and pharmaceutical companies haven’t researched marijuana you are crazy. It’s just not made public. Pharmaceutical companies doesn’t want it legal because it would cut into their profits. The government most (politicians) don’t want it legal because they get campaign donations from the pharmaceutical companies who don’t want it legal.
