Medical Cannabis 30 Years Later: A Question?

Medical Cannabis 30 Years Later: A Question?

On November 20, 1982 the US federal government sent a Florida citizen 300 cannabis cigarettes in a shiny tin can.

The US government, known the world over as a champion of preying on the sick with a weapon they call the war on drugs, continues to send the same man the same ration of cigarettes 29 years later.

This delivery of medicine is part of a “Compassionate” program that exists to study “new drugs”, in this case, marijuana. Over the 29 year period the government has performed no such study.

Irvin Rosenfeld of Florida will begin his 30th year of smoking cannabis cigarettes on November 20, 2011 and he feels great.

“Having used cannabis for a serious illness for almost three decades puts me in the record books as the longest in your face proof that the medical cannabis policy in the US is illogical and mean.” Irv spoke from his stock brokerage office where he is a senior vice president of investments.

“While smoking cannabis is derided by my federal government I have suffered no negative consequences from the experimentation, unobserved by them, that they have allowed me and three others to participate in” Irv added.

Irv and three other federal cannabis patients were medically examined by Patients Out of Time. The non-profit assumed the responsible agency, NIDA, would never dare conduct such study fearing rightfully that the finding would likely be and was found to be very positive for all four patients.

Such a study is thought by Congress to have never been completed yet has been published since 2002 at and is known as “The Missoula Study.”

“When the medical team finished their extensive three day long study of my health they declared me in excellent condition for my age and affliction. For the federal government to continually assert that there is no adequate science proving therapeutic value to cannabis is absurd. I stand as a living, breathing example of just how wrong they are and how disingenuous their statements about the medical utility of cannabis have become.”

Irv continued, “I intend to live another 30 years or at least until I see all patients afforded the same health care option that my government affords me. Please excuse me it’s time to take my medicine.”

Irv is on the Board of Directors of Patients Out of Time, a 501c3 educational charity, as are the other three federally supplied cannabis patients.

A media conundrum continues on this issue. Is the US government lying while patients sicken and die, while Vets suffer from unethical treatment, or do we believe the tens of thousands of patients like Irv and his colleagues and the science that supports their lives – that is the question?

Irvin will be in Colorado November 15-21, 2011 for a book tour and to promote his educational endeavor – Colorado Connect.
