Episode Two, A Deeper Look Into a Blinded Cancer Survivors Life

I talk about my early childhood surrounded by cancer, removal of my eyes and the long term issues this caused. I go deeper into my reasons for the use of medical cannabis and psilocybin and the benefits they provide on a daily basis.
Thank you for checking out this pod cast, please help others with kindness. Going through cancer isn’t easy and the smallest acts of kindness can really make a huge difference.

Episode One, An introduction to Cancer and Cannabis from a Blinded survivor

I sit down with a bowl of Dutch Treat which is a strain of cannabis in hand and discussed what it was like fighting cancer at a young age and growing up with no sight. I was diagnosed with cancer of the eyes at a month old and became blind by age two. The main topics of this podcast focus on cancer, the long term affects of radiation, the right to use cannabis as medicine and working with advocacy to achieve a goal.
I also address the use of psilocybin aka magic mushrooms to treat depression and pain management. Psilocybin helps you feel comfortable inside your own skin when you’re body is undergoing crazy surgeries and chemical attacks from chemo.

Cure for the munchies (Stoners Milkshake)

I don’t hide the fact I use medical cannabis to treat chronic pain and it is also a well known fact that cannabis causes tokers to chow down on some good munch food. One of my favorite quick foods for this is a milkshake full of texture, crunch, sugar and peanut butter!

    Things you’ll need.

  • Favorite flavor of ice cream. (Court or gallon)
  • Peanut butter (creamy)
  • milk (2 cups)
  • honey
  • Cap’n Crunch Cereal
  • Oreos (3 or 4 for each shake)
  • coco powder
  • chocolate chips

    Lets Blend It Up

      In a blender mix the following items to be blended together.

    1. Pour one cup of milk into the blender.
    2. Add ice cream until the blender is filled halfway with the sugary goodness.
    3. Add one t-spoon of coco powder. If you’re a fan of coco feel free to use this as a suggestive guideline.
    4. Pour in honey until you feel like its enough. I usually put in about four table spoons worth of organic honey.
    5. Add four to six table spoons of peanut butter. If you decided to use crunchy peanut butter be careful of the amount of peanut chunks on each spoon full.
    6. Close the blender and blend the ice cream and other ingredients together for ten seconds.
    7. Add in the chocolate chips, I usually throw in about two handfuls. For extra flavor I also use a variety of chips including vanilla, Carmel and yogurt which can be fun to experiment with.
    8. Next go in the Oreos, as you add each cookie crunch the cookies up to assist with the blending process.
    9. Now add in two or three handfuls of Cap’n Crunch cereal.
    10. If you have any sort of cannabis infused oil or butter you can add it in at this moment. Follow dosing instructions on the oil or butters packaging. If it doesn’t have any use small amounts and if it’s not enough you can always add more next time. Please make sure children aren’t able to get their hands on any of this treat.
    11. Blend all of this together until it becomes a smooth creamy milkshake.
    12. Add milk as needed if the shake is staying a thicker consistency.
    13. Pour into a frosted glass and enjoy.

Abuse of Authority by Cops

Wearing a badge given to you by citizens doesn’t mean you can mistreat the people who gave you the power. Following the law and policing the world doesn’t mean you can abuse your authority.
The way these cops act is a violation of the human trust, not only that but they’re setting a bad example for all law enforcement. Protect and serve, I don’t see protecting or service being offered in this video.
Cops don’t like being recorded because it means they’ll be held accountable. It is not against the law to record in the public domain and cops do not have the right to take your belongings without putting you under arrest.
This article offers some good advice and perspective.

Discrimination against medical cannabis users at EverGreen

Since 1967 the Evergreen College in Olympia Washington has been known for one of the most liberal schools in the United States. There’s a common stereotypical thought that Evergreen is a big school for cannabis users.
During my orientation today I found out that this couldn’t be further from the truth, the administration said cannabis is not allowed on campus. This isn’t a big surprise but what caught me off guard was the next statement.
“Even if you have a green card aka a doctor’s authorization cannabis is not allowed on campus, you may not smoke cannabis in the designated smoking areas. If you draw attention to yourself that you use cannabis, attention will find you…”
Smoke your cigarettes and pollute the air by spreading cancer through second hand smoke no problem but smoke cannabis to help with pain, ADD, ADHD, anxiety or treat cancer and you’ll be given a citation and possible expulsion from Evergreen!
Research is proving that cannabis is healthier than cigarettes. Cannabis smoke does not impair long function permanently and does not cause cancer. Yet you can go smoke a cigarette which has been directly linked to lung cancer and throat cancer
One of the reasons Evergreen is against cannabis patients is because the school receives federal grants and cannabis is still illegal on the federal level. However while the feds outlawed cannabis the citizens of Washington voted and legalized cannabis for medical and recreational use.
I think the fact my doctor wrote an authorization for cannabis should overrule any outcry from the school. After all what’s the difference if I take hard opiates and show up to class all drugged up.
If you’re saying cannabis isn’t allowed you should probably get rid of Tylenol, Excedrin and Advil. Oh wait you won’t because it’s legal on the federal level, I’m not asking Evergreen to stand against the feds. That’s my job as a citizen to speak out against a corrupt and unjust group of agencies and politicians.
What I am asking Evergreen to consider is to stand strong with the backing of its unique history and its popularity among young adults to help all students with medical cannabis requirements. I would not attend a school that told me I couldn’t take medicine to heal myself.
What are the students living on campus supposed to do if they can’t medicate with cannabis if they have an authorization for cannabis from their doctor? How do you think they feel, being told to sacrifice health for education and to be given a feeling of constant stress. The stress can’t be good for the ability to learn. How in fact does a college have the legal ability to determine what is and what isn’t a medication?
The argument is this, as a medical cannabis patient and advocate I find it unjust that a school can dictate whether or not my authorization from my doctor is legit and can punish me for using medicine.
