We(ed) the people

In "Weed the People," filmmakers Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake take an unflinching look at the underground world of herbal medicine, where patients on their own conditions and spend thousands of dollars on federally illegal medicines that are concocted in suburban kitchens.

Nowhere is this phenomenon more compelling than in the treatment of children, who are ignorant of the stigma of medicinal marijuana and whose parents will stop at nothing to help them. "Weed the People" looks beyond propaganda and politics to reveal the legitimate science behind cannabis medicine and the compelling stories of ordinary people whose lives are inescapably caught up in the controversy.

In July 2013 new parents Tracy and Josh Ryan received the devastating news that their 7-month-old baby Sophie had an inoperable brain tumor. The doctors prescribed chemotherapy as the only course of treatment, but could not guarantee it would work. Tracy Ryan felt intuitively that western medicine alone would not be enough to save her daughter. After intensive research, the Ryans began Sophie on a regimen of medicinal cannabis oils, hoping for a miracle.

The most fascinating area of cannabis research revolves around an element of the marijuana plant called cannabidiol (CBD) a powerful antioxidant that does not produce the psychotropic effects of THC. CBD shows a unique ability to kill cancer cells in early laboratory tests.

  1. Dear Dr. Eastern George,

    When I saw your cancer miracle cure guide in the clinic I was
    honestly shocked about the claims it was making about finally curing
    the cancer of a lot of patients that we attending there.

    my husband have been following your guide since the past 7 weeks and, well our results I
    wouldn't have even dreamed of. His system is now in completely
    normal levels!
    That means no more chemo, and no more drugs again.

    Thank you for giving my husband's life back and curing his cancer totally

    Dr Eastern George
