Cannabis is stealing all of the medicinal herb headlines lately, which is understandable enough for many reasons including the fact that it’s the only medicinal plant many people know. As thrilled as I am about legalized weed here in Colorado, I think it important for us all to know that there are many herbs that can treat many diseases.

This does not prevent the bastards from pushing chemo and radiation to ensure that the last year or two of your life really sucks.
