Freedom from Tyranny

Fifty-three years ago I was standing in a sea of black people when Martin Luther King Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech. It was a peaceful crowd. There were a few whites, but not many. My sister and I were standing near one of the TV cameras and near the end of the speech I saw the red light go on. We were on live TV. At the time we didn’t know how important that day was.

We are still working on Dr. King’s dream to be free from tyranny. President Nixon’s war on marijuana began a decade later. That war has ruined the lives of many blacks. It was a clever ruse. Prohibiting marijuana has no rational basis. Cannabis is a medicinal herb that is also used socially. Today we are creating a new paradigm where Cannabis is no longer demonized.

The healing properties of Cannabis are recognized by the vast majority of Americans, but the laws are slow to change. Anti-marijuana propaganda has produced an irrational fear. The Cannabis Wave community is revealing the truth and creating a new landscape. The tyranny of the past will no longer stand.

Trust is Essential

Let’s talk about trust. Why do we trust some people? Why don’t we trust some people?

When you trust someone, you believe that they will do what they say they’re going to do. If you don’t believe them, you don’t trust them.

Trust is essential to cooperation. Without trust, anger and frustration boil to the surface.

Who do you trust? First you have to trust yourself. Then you can find other trustworthy people like you. Cannabis Wave guides are trustworthy helpers who can show you the way.

Respect for Cannabis

Let’s talk about respect. As a member of Cannabis Wave, you are one of the people who respects Cannabis. Too many people don’t respect the cannabis plant. They think it’s just garbage. They’ve been told a lot of stories about the “devil weed”. They blame it for making them do stupid things.

In reality, cannabis changes the way you perceive the world. It shifts your focus onto the now. Thoughts about the past and future recede into the distance. This adjustment allows new ideas to percolate into your mind.

The “Laugh Factor”

One of the issues we need to address is the “laugh factor” associated with cannabis. After decades of propaganda and jokes about marijuana, people tend to laugh when talking about the medical use of cannabis.

We need to put that behind us so we can let people know that cannabis is a valuable medicine.

Why does marijuana make people laugh?

Cannabis Friendly Jobs

We have a lot of work to do. The laws are changing rapidly and people who secretly used cannabis are coming into the light! It’s a rough call. The old guys manipulated the laws on marijuana that made it difficult to be open about cannabis use.

Many companies have policies that discriminate against people who use cannabis. These policies are changing.

Cannabis Wave is creating a job exchange to match people looking for work with employers who are cannabis friendly.

Marijuana propaganda

Cannabis has been used by humans for thousands of years. Today, we are coming out of a period of ignorance and suppression. Cannabis is both medicinal and social. The artificial barrier society has built between medical use and recreational use will come down when people realize that this plant is valuable for it’s ability to do many things.

There is nothing to fear from marijuana. The negative propaganda about marijuana is just that … propaganda which is designed to promote fear.

Let us ride the Cannabis Wave!

Determined by time, we find ourselves at a new beginning. So many Cannabis initiates have been undermined by mentioning the word marijuana that the discussion ends there, not having the tools of knowledge to go further in detail.

Our stories get lost in the criminal system and the essence of the plant itself gets lost in commercial enterprise.

We all have a voice and common interest in the new Cannabis arena. But so many questions go un-answered. The cloak of illusion is a strong fabric which can be raised if we all understand the real truth.

That’s exactly why we have created the Cannabis Wave forum. To tell your truth with integrity and honor. To know the Cannabis history, the political agenda. The awe-inspiring magic of the plant itself.

Let us ride the Wave together. Welcome.

American Alliance for Medical Cannabis (AAMC)




In 2001, the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis was formed by Dr. Jay R. Cavanaugh to promote the medical uses of marijuana. AAMC became a member of the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis which filed a petition with the federal government to remove marijuana from their “no medical use” classification. Nine years later the government denied the petition.

AAMC now has directors active in 21 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin). We are helping patients find the resources they need in order to benefit from medical cannabis. The AAMC website continues to be a valuable source of information for hundreds of thousands of people who want to know about medical marijuana and how to use it.

We must continue our efforts to educate decision makers about the medical use of marijuana. The scientific record shows that marijuana is remarkably safe and effective in the treatment of serious illness. In order to overcome political resistance to accept the existence of medical marijuana, we must combine our efforts and strengthen our voice. We need patients, gardeners, business owners, scientists, lawyers, and politicians to join together and help create the change we must have.

Please take a moment to become a member of the American Alliance for Medical Cannabis. Together we can make our voice heard.

Dr. David Bearman





After working for nearly forty years in substance and drug abuse treatment and prevention programs, Dr. David Bearman has a few questions, including: “Why should the government stand in the way of an individual to take responsibility for their health?” And, “Why should cannabis be in a separate category from other herbal remedies?” Dr. Bearman believes that “it is clear to all but the most scientifically illiterate that cannabis and cannabinoids are medicine.”

A pioneer in free and community clinic activities, Dr. Bearman is one of the leading physicians in the U.S. in the field of medical cannabis. His decades of work in substance abuse treatment and prevention qualify him as an expert, not only in conventional treatment and prevention, but in the therapeutic use of cannabis as well.

In his essay, The Tipping Point, this Santa Barbara physician and surgeon asks another, intriguing question, “Are we finally nearing the end to a long pointless war of hysteria?” Bearman continues, “We may have finally reached a tipping point in this long war on our sanity,” and cites several indicators that the war against cannabis might soon be over:

  • In December, 2005, the FDA finally approved phase III clinical studies for tincture of cannabis, to be conducted by GW Pharmaceuticals
  • Two of the most ferocious former federal drug warriors, Congressman Bob Barr and Dr. Andrea Barthwell, Deputy Drug Czar under President George W. Bush, have seen the light and switched sides, now working as spokespeople for the Marijuana Policy Project and GW Pharmaceuticals, respectively.
  • The Hinchey – Rohrbacher Amendment continues to slowly gain support, and that support is expected to increase dramatically in the near future.
  • In June 2001, Professor Lyle Craker applied to the DEA for a license to grow and study cannabis at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. The DEA has ignored a ruling in the case to approve his license.
  • Growing numbers of U.S. physicians are openly supporting medical cannabis.

Dr. Bearman believes that these indicators are undeniable proof of Americans’ collective change of mind about the worth of cannabis as medicine, and that the real issues raised by medical cannabis are Constitutional and philosophical.

Bearman and other informed observers believe that, with the great interest shown by the pharmaceutical industry in the development of new cannabis-based drugs and synthetic cannabinoids, we will benefit from a better understanding of brain chemistry, and that different strains of condition-specific cannabis will continue to be developed, along with similar synthetics, making the future of medicinal cannabis look promising indeed.
