"We found the cure for the plague of the 21st century! We can PREVENT and TREAT deadly cancers with a medicine that doesn't kill healthy cells.
"Chemotherapy attacks every type of cell causing them to die, it's non-discriminatory. The anti-cancer constituents in marijuana effectively kill cancer cells without hurting healthy cells. There is no nausea, hair loss, or other toxic side effects of medical marijuana. It's proven! How can we morally and ethically withhold this effective cancer prevention & treatment that has no negative side effects?" -DR LINDSEY PEARSON
