Title: Melissa Etheridge Arrested For Having Cannabis Oil She Used to Help With Cancer

It was reported this week that rock musician and cancer survivor Melissa Etheridge was recently arrested in North Dakota after police found cannabis oil on her tour bus.

The arrest took place on August 17 but was not publicized until TMZ broke the story yesterday. Like millions of people with cancer across the world, including myself, Etheridge has discovered that cannabis oil not only treats the after-effects of chemotherapy but also promote apoptosis, which prevents cancer from developing again.

In October 2004, Etheridge was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer and endured a lumpectomy with five rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. It is not clear what her preventative regimen has been this past decade, but it is safe to speculate that cannabis oil has played a role in her continued remission as well as treatment for pain and nausea.

Etheridge looked confident after her arrest and can be seen with a huge grin in her mugshot photo. She pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.

Just weeks after her arrest, fellow rock musician Todd Rundgren was also arrested at the very same spot in North Dakota when police found two small vape pens filled with cannabis oil on his tour bus.

Cannabis oil is legal for medical patients who live in California, as Etheridge does, but the laws are still comparatively harsh in North Dakota, despite the fact that measures were recently passed in the legislature to start a medical marijuana program. As of now, North Dakota exists in a legal gray area because politicians are dragging their feet and bickering about how the program will be implemented.

This situation is sadly common throughout the US. Even in my state of Maryland where I am fighting my cancer, medical cards are available so patients can avoid arrest, but the political process has stalled the establishment of dispensaries for over a year, forcing sick patients into the black market.

In the past several years, the science and strong anecdotal evidence proving the medical value of cannabis has continued to grow, especially in regards to cancer treatment. Just in this past year, we have reported on multiple incidences where studies have confirmed the healing power of cannabis, to the point where organizations tied to big pharma and the US government are now forced to reverse their position on the medicine.

Etheridge said in a recent article that she does not live a party-oriented lifestyle, but found that cannabis is one of the best medicines for a cancer survivor.

“Because I am a musician, people often assume that I must indulge in the fast-paced life that often comes with playing on the road. But they would be wrong. Coming up in the business in the 1980’s, I saw plenty of drugs, but it never really appealed to me. I’m not even much of a drinker,” she wrote in her article at newapproachmissouri.com.

She continued: “But when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2004, I found that there was one substance that helped me through: Cannabis. My doctors gave me what they called ‘dose dense’ chemotherapy, which is stronger than usual. They could prescribe that level of chemo for me because I was able to take time off work to fight my cancer full time. Unfortunately, the dose dense chemo made the side effects even worse. My friends told me that medical cannabis could help me handle chemotherapy, so I gave it a try. It worked even better than they said it would. Not only did it treat my nausea better than anything else I tried, it alleviated both my physical and emotional pain. I continue to use cannabis to treat the lasting gastrointestinal effects of the chemo and to help me get a good night’s sleep.”

Etheridge is scheduled to perform the national anthem at the Chiefs vs. Steelers game this Sunday to raise awareness and funds for the “Crucial Catch” campaign, with the goal of helping unknowing patients catch their cancer early.

No gray area. Marijuana is currently illegal in North Dakota.

I wondered how long it would take for the first self-righteous asshole to show up.

Somehow I knew it would be you.

Obviously you've never had a spouse, child, parent or loved one who has suffered or is suffering from cancer and the effects of chemotherapy.

I don't care one iota what people use to treat their cancer or the cancer of a loved one. It's none of my business.

What I do care about is when they make it public and say it's the best thing ever. Their anecdotal stories are self- serving, misleading and have no place in modern medicine.

You have success treating your cancer with marijuana? Healing crystals? The blood of a newborn goat? Fine. Keep it to yourself.

anecdotal stories

Leukemia has a new foe — one reviled by the U.S. DEA, loved as a tool for law enforcement profiteering, and purposely maligned by Big Pharma — cannabis.

A new study found that, in combination with traditional chemotherapy, cannabinoids — the active compounds in cannabis — significantly improved treatment of leukemia.

Adding cannabinoid therapy to a traditional cancer treatment regimen meant doctors could lower the dose of chemotherapy while minimizing its oft-debilitating side effects, such as nausea.

Researchers also found the order in which the two medicines were administered proffered different results — more cancer cells die, or experience apoptosis, when cannabinoids follow chemotherapy.

“We have shown for the first time that the order in which cannabinoids and chemotherapy are used is crucial in determining the overall effectiveness of this treatment,” explained Dr. Wai Liu of St. George’s, University of London, and lead author of the study, quoted by the Daily Mail.

anecdotal stories

You cited a scientific study, not an anecdotal story. If certain cannabinoids found in marijuana have an effect on fighting leukemia, I'm all for it.

From the study: "These extracts are highly concentrated and purified, so smoking marijuana will not have a similar effect."

Just to be clear.

I have a granddaughter that is was diagnosed with leukemia about 4 years ago... and after 1.5 years of chemotherapy.... has shown no signs of the disease coming back. She's 11 now. If the doctors treated her with a big fat doobie every day, she'd be deceased now.

No, none of the above, but I do have an anecdotal story. I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1991. Underwent surgery to remove a barrel tumor. Followed by Radiation Therapy, and then Chemo. I wore a colostomy bag for approximately one year. The chemo was nasty. Then they opened me up again and reattached the bowels together to function normally. A year or two later they opened me up again to fix a twist and blockage of the intestine from that surgery.

That's three surgeries, radiation, and chemo. By the grace of God I was able to get through it all without resorting to cannabis or alcohol, although I have to admit that I considered weed for the nausea. That was my PERSONAL choice.

If you want powers not granted by the US Constitution, reserved to the States, or to the People, pass an amendment, you scofflaw totalitarian goon!

It'll never happen. Despite the D&R party's worst efforts America largely remains "The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave"! (void where prohibited by "law", aka illegal legislation). Liberty yet lives in the heart of Americans (Canaries excluded).

You'd probably be more happy in China, N. Korea, the Philippines, or Saudi Arabia, with your own kind.

Maybe Donny Trump can get you a job with his buddy Duterte, for a sizable campaign contribution?

One day I would love to live in a country where the police have better things to do with their time than make BullBush arrests like this.

Those cops should be ashamed of themselves,but are too stupid to understand they were wrong.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

She was entering the U.S. from Canada and a K-9 unit alerted border patrol.

No, no, no. You're supposed to treat cancer with chemo and a big fat doobie. Then when the cancer goes into remission, you credit the big fat doobie.

I challenge any of these "medical" marijuana dopers to substitute marijuana for their doctor-prescribed "big pharma" drugs.

"If you want powers not granted by the US Constitution, reserved to the States, or to the People, pass an amendment ..."

I agree. But, in the case of controlled substances, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Gonzales v. Raich 545 U.S. 1 (2005) that the federal government has the power to regulate marijuana.

If you insist on ignoring or violating that law deemed constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court, then you do so with your eyes wide open, you scofflaw anarchist goon!
