It’s time for someone to look Mike Hyde in the eyes and tell him why he lost his 4-year-old son
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 06, 2013
From cannabinoid patents held by big pharmaceutical companies to hundreds of thousands of cannabis-related arrests each year, the war on drugs seems to be benefiting someone. But what about the innumerable cancer patients, many of whom are barely taking their first steps, who are denied access to relief every day? 2) American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny, now in theaters, asks, “Who is America’s longest running war really helping?”
Produced in association with United Patients Group, the latest documentary from filmmaker Kevin Booth is now playing in select theaters across the country. It follows the increase in pediatric cancer cases and the continuous push to keep the medical benefits of cannabis away from the people who need it the most. 3)
It questions the motives behind the 800,000 cannabis related arrests each year, the 2003 patent on cannabinoids held by the government, 4) the similar US patent application by overseas giant GW Pharmaceuticals, the restriction of cannabis oil as a cancer treatment in the case of young Cash Hyde, and the lies American people are told every day.
American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny overturns stones that powerful people have tried to hide the truth under. It takes a real look inside the history of marijuana and how this war got started. It shows how far cannabis has come over the years, and how far it still has to go.
“The truth is that we have seen, time and time again, that cannabis has the power to kill cancer cells,” 5) said Booth. “Here we are, with documented cases of cannabis sending cancer into remission, with a little boy whose life was stripped away when traditional Western medicine failed him, and the solution is there but we can’t have access to it? 6) It doesn’t make sense.”
“It’s time for someone to look Mike Hyde in the eyes and tell him why he lost his 4-year-old son. Why the only treatment that worked – that he proved actually worked – was discouraged by doctors and banned by the government,” Booth continued. “There are answers out there and we’re going to find them.”
