Thank goodness that Eagle Rock Patch might possibly connect me with a grower—the shoe fits out of its sheer name.
I did not want to reveal my private medical history, but for the sake of justice I feel that I must.
Since Mr. Huizar is my neighbor, I am hoping he will do the neighborly thing and help me grow my MMJ. He must have a green thumb (since he probably grows his own). Actually that is a HIPAA violation and I cannot ask the councilman if he takes medications like medical marijuana.
If Mr. Huizar thinks he has a "cause" then he is mistaken. A "cause" is trying to make sick people well again. He is confused.
The person I voted for to represent me has failed. Señor Huizar does not understand basic science. If he can't understand the basis of life (or at least draw upon an educated adviser), then what other simplicities does he not understand?
He is extremely problematic and we must get rid of him unless he provides us with plots of land to grow on. I have lived in Eagle Rock for 28 years and have seen these guys come and go. I know when something stinks and it ain't MMJ. When you analyze his work on this topic it immediately draws one's attention that he might be involved with a cartel; he could be a don, jefe or matador (probably matador, the least of the least, but he doesn't scare me after what I've been through).
These are not accusations, just vivid so-called disillusions of a sick Eagle Rock homeowner. I have called Huizar's den to let him know that I am sick. I need a much better representative.
I refuse to die even though I have had full-blown AIDS and Hep C, for almost 30 years. I will make sure Huizar is voted out, even if I have to go door to door with my oxygen tank so I can reach my "gold standard" with regard to my Hep C treatment. If you are a boomer, surprise! Go get tested for Hep C and then let's see what you think about MMJ and Huizar.
Sciene is fact-based and is not political.
Hepatitis C - (the Gold Standard) A 2006 study performed by researchers at the University of California at San Francisco found that marijuana helps improve the effectiveness of drug therapy for hepatitis C, an infection that roughly 3 million Americans contract each year. Hepatitis C medications often have severe side effects like loss of appetite, depression, nausea, muscle aches and extreme fatigue. Patients that smoked marijuana every day or two found that not only did they complete the therapy, but that the marijuana even made it more effective in achieving a "sustained virological response," which is the gold standard in therapy, meaning there was no sign of the virus left in their bodies.
AIDS - Though the drug is illegal in the U.S., the FDA and American Cancer Society agree that the active ingredients in marijuana, or cannabinoids, have been approved by officials to "relieve nausea and vomiting and increase appetite in people with cancer and AIDS." The American Cancer Society says that "marijuana has anti-bacterial properties, inhibits tumor growth, and enlarges the airways, which they believe can ease the severity of asthma attacks."
I am a long-term survivor of full-blown AIDS and I don't carry the elite gene of non-responders. I have survived because of some very smart people and Señor Huizar is not one of them.
Marijuana: Why Is It Illegal Again? - There seem to be few, if any, reasons to keep marijuana off the market. It doesn't kill.
Full-blown AIDS and Hep C are tying to kill me. I will do everything I can to get Huizar voted out of office. I'm disabled and have some free time, when I'm not vomiting or having diarrhea, to stir up trouble for him. I usually do my due diligence, but I will look back on the day that I voted this "person" into office as one of my darkest days. Even after 20 different hospitalizations for my illnesses, that was my darkest day. I spent a week again in the hospital at Glendale Adventist just last month, but my darkest day was voting for Huizar.
Mon jour le plus sombre a voté pour Señor Huizar .... Mi día más oscuro fue cuando voté por Sr. Huizar.
He fooled me and made me think he would help me. Please honk when you see me in front of his Eagle Rock office on Colorado Boulevard until they arrest me.
Mothers ... I will not smoke in front of your children due to your alleged concerns. Feel free to let them see your husband get drunk, smoke cigarettes and then beat the crap out of you. The children will be fine seeing that, but God forbid they should see me taking my medicine. While you are being beaten, I will be picking up trash and making our community a better place, if I have the strength.
I was honored by receiving the Mayor's Community Service Award (presumably the best you can get from such a hick town). I have a separate award from the full City Council and the Mayor for good citizenship. I have a Merit of Citizenship award from the California State Assembly, and last (but not in the very least of my accomplishments and awards), I am a recipient of the highest award given by the American Hospital Association for my work with AIDS patients.
So here I am, a well-rounded expert Eagle Rock citizen on every side of this issue, and Señor Huizar won't give me a call? I called him, and he never called me back. I wonder just whom he calls for advice.
Clinical Uses of Marijuana
In February of 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released a report detailing the possible medical uses for marijuana and most productive avenues for research. The report highlighted five areas of medical care that they felt were most appropriate:
1. Stimulate appetite and alleviate cachexia.
2. Control nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy.
3. Decrease intraocular pressure.
5. Neurological and movement disorders.
Forgive me that I don't qualify under situation #3. That test is always negative because the other four ailments that require MMJ take care glaucoma as a blessed side effect from this evil herb.
