“And sometimes cancer just happens so get over it.”

VJ Sleight MA TTS on Jun 12, 2012 at 14:54:06

“We don't know all of the reasons of why people get cancer--it strikes everyone. But that doesn't mean we should stop looking for the causes because that will lead to better treatment and prevention. There isn't just one thing that causes cancer, just as cancer is not just one disease--but many and each could be caused by something different or a combination of things.”

“It's just like letting the fox watch the hen house with the CEO of JP Morgan Chase's Jamie Dimon, playing the fox. Let's not forget Jamie Dimon feels the same way as the Republican lackeys that he's bought and paid for. I thought no one could be that stupid. Was I wrong!”

“On the behalf of myself and the millions of other cancer patients. Stop the talk and walk the walk. Do something! The talk has been going on since Refer Madness in 1936. I think that's enough talk don't you?”

“So sorry that you are ill with Cancer and unable to get help with Marijuana. One thing I wish you would add in your pleas to our Government, is that not only do Cancer patients need to use Medicinal Marijuana for their issues; but people with Chronic Pain issues such as myself, having had to deal with this for 16 years and counting could use this as a pain killer rather than always swallowing pills that don't help much.
I pray you are doing better day by day.”

“There is actually no way that I would ever vote for a Republican. You are right, there is more than 1 issue on the table here and that issue does not warrant voting for a person who would say anything just to get elected. The Republicans think they are really suave at this. Though part of their problem is that they must be watching black and white TV before the remote control came out while the rest of the planet is using a 4g internet network. They are really out of touch with reality. There are other countries ready to except their conservative views. It's called the Middle East. If I wanted to live there I would move there.”

“I've seen the same movie too. The Republicans are so full of crap, just like the Democrats, they will say whatever takes to get elected then do whatever their hidden agenda was. Obama really pissed me off on this one as I'm a cancer patient and use medical marijuana to stay alive so that I can keep paying my f ing taxes. You would think they would be interested in working with me. But they would rather sell death in the form of cigarettes to impoverished island nations and guns to Syria. What a bunch of imbeciles that run this country. We should send all of them home. I assure you we won't miss a single one of them.
I still cannot fathom that we pay 4.66 billion for free healthcare for millionaire senators who do nothing but try to make it worse for the rest of us everyday.”

“yes hes made you mad but are you willing NOT to vote for him? just for that one policy? hes makeing a calculated view. and i bet he would be willing to relax some polcies on pot. but their is no way you should even think of voteeing for a republican, just because of one policy. thats what repubs do with abortion. no one wants abortions but is a nessesity in some cases. just think of the things repubs will do if they get into the presidency, LOWER MINWAGE, RESTRICT WOMENS RIGHTS even further, KIDS RIGHTS, WORKERS RIGHTS. just because hes against weed its not enough for me EVER to vote for a repubs EVER. and i smoke weed everyday! to me if WE dont get healthcare neither should the federal/state workers! after all we pay for their salaries!”

“If you can't eat you die.
You obviously have never had Cancer or Chemo and therefore are clueless as to the cramping, nausea, constipation and the difficulty in getting food past your teeth when all other medicines don't work.Can you imagine chicken tasting like a cotton shirt or cheerios tasting like sand? Here's one for you and this happened to me. You are fast asleep and are woken up because you are starting to throw up.
So until you get some experience in a Chemo Chair please try a little compassion for those of us with Cancer that need MMJ to stay alive.”
