Cash Hyde. Pioneering cannabis patient who steeled the resolve of medicinal rights advocates, and gave hope to patients online all over the world. Dead at 4.
It was brain cancer. Radiation worked against the tumor, but it might have killed him if his father hadn’t been able to sneak cannabis oil into his two-year-old’s feeding tube. Cannabis helped Cash pulled through once, but the cancer returned. He died this week in the arms of his brave, heartbroken parents.
A crowning example of the power of anti-pot propaganda is that his doctors were okay with treatments that are deadly by design, like chemo, but wouldn’t even discuss the use of cannabis, a nontoxic medicinal flower that has never killed anyone. Ever.
The Feds treated the Hydes like criminals, and the state of Montana shut down the dispensaries. Cash was forced to go without his healing medicine while his parents scrambled to find other ways to get it for him.
The cruelty! The insanity! The healing power of cannabis. All revealed in the very brief life of this little boy.
Wake up America! Cancer research groups have been sitting on the good news since the seventies, and in 2003 your own government filed a patent on the medicinal effectiveness of the flower (#6,630,507, entitled Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants).
Look it up. It’s true. Ask Obama; he knows.
Cannabis is not rising in the polls and being legalized outright because we’ve finally given into the demands of stoners. It’s not dope. It's medicine. For Cashy Hyde it was life-giving, and his story is all the President should need to make history and end the war.
