St. Louis, MO – January 19, 2012 – Senible Missouri will be
screening the documentary "What if Cannabis Cured Cancer?" on Thursday, January 19th, from
6:30 – 8:30 p.m at the Tesson Ferry Branch Public Library.
This is receiving rave reviews and is being heralded as one of the best medical cannabis documentaries yet released.
"What if Cannabis Cured Cancer" focuses on the anti-cancer properties of the plant and the current medical research being conducted on its active, therapeutic compounds.
Research is emerging that cannabis may possess therapeutic properties that extend far beyond coping mechanisms for current cancer treatments. As this film explores, scientific studies are finding that cannabis may be able to actually heal and possibly even prevent certain types of cancer. This may be due to the fact that all mammals already possess a cannabinoid-producing system in their bodies called the endocannabinoid system. The administration of natural cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant appear to act as a supplement to this system which, in turn, results in greater overall health.
“Everyone will face chronic or terminal illness at some point in their life.” Says Mark Pedersen, founder of Sensible Missouri, Missouri's cannabis patient advocacy organization. "When that occurs, all Americans should have the choice of this safe, effective alternative."
Mark Pedersen will be available to answer questions following the movie.

I first met Brian at the 2009 Joplin Cannabis Revival. Brian is a Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor. He attributes his recovery to his use of cannabis as an adjunct to the chemotherapy he received.
