Making claims like cannabis cures colon cancer is irresponsible.
Sorry, but it is.
Unless you can prove it in a proper scientific test, under controlled conditions then all you are doing is giving ammunition to the prohibitionists. Cannabis loony makes crazy claims...
Not trying to be confrontational here, but have you tried google before jumping on the "irresponsible/bad science" bandwagon?
Here's some material you might have found:
What this means to me is that the antitumor effects of cannabis is well documented, as well as its ability to stop the propagation of metastasis and protect the tissue surrounding the tumor.
Does this mean that everyone who's got a tumor should start using it? Nope.
Has Graywolf ever said that cannabis, without a doubt, cured those two people's cancer? Not quite:

Twice now I have supplied cannabis oil to colon cancer patients and when they showed up for surgery 30 days later, the cancer was gone.
He has only stated the facts. You might blame him for not giving you enough facts, but can you exclude with 100% certainty that cannabis cured those tumors? If not, then personally, I consider that information a favour. Considering how expensive and ineffective chemoterapy is, and adding to that the fact we know since the 70ies that cannabis does have an antitumor effect, what I consider irresponsible is to let hundreds of thousands of people every year (just in the UK) die as we wait for the medical establishment to verify something that, in my personal view, would be relatively simple, safe, and surely not immoral to figure out on our own.
Sorry for the tirade everyone, have fun.
