We've balanced the doom and gloom of prescription med, with snap shots of Celebrities whose self described Marijuana odyssey's led them further from Hades and closer to Heaven


Prince's former drug addiction was recently revealed by an insider, telling how he was addicted to  pharmaceutical opiates throughout his career.  Doctor D, incognito said Prince would spend up to $40,000 for a six-month supply of the painkillers Dilaudid and Fentanyl.  Right now, it's true, Prince is in no pain, but his fan's certainly are.


CBD helps reduce over-cravings - to slow down or stop drinking at the point where alcohol becomes toxic.


Michael Jackson

Jackson's autopsy showed he had a massive pharma-drug cocktail of propofol,  lorazepam. Midazolam, Diazepam, Lidocaine, and Ephedrine in his body.


Glenn Frey - Eagles

Fry's manager attributed his untimely and premature death to dodgy Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment   Indicated in this horrific disaster were disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) which include Methotrexate Sulfasalazine Leflunomide Azathioprine Cyclosporine.  



Elvis's cocktail of death included various amounts of Ethinamate, Methaqualone, Codeine and Barbiturates. Chlorpheniramine, Meperidine, Morphine and Valium.  Elvis started life poor and ended ghetto style, fat from eating double cheeseburgers and gobbling prescription drugs. 


Marilyn Monroe

The iconic bombshell ingested a bottle of barbiturates at reincarnation time. Some speculate conspiracy.  .If there was a conspiracy relating to John F Kennedy,  the assassins were well aware that these pills could KILL.  Then again, maybe Pot could kill you, a bale of weed could fall on your head.  Joking aside, in roughly 28,000 research studies worldwide on Cannabis, Cannabinoids, CBD, THC there is not a single documented case of death directly attributed to Marijuana within the duration of the studies.  Still, novices should beware that high THC varieties can, in the words of guru, Dr. Paul Hornby, scare the living beJesus out of you. 




Willie Nelson

Country Music's version of Bob Marley, Willie Nelson is over 80, evidence that weed is a very, very slow working gateway drug.  Willie continues to trumpet weed's medicinal effects and now has operates a Medical Marijuana business


Merle Haggard

At one time, Country music legend Merle shunned Marijuana.  As a young man, Merle went on the Country circuit, where musicians took a lot of pills and what-not. Eventually he ran into some reasonable Pot smoking buddies and tried it, then did a 180.  Soon enough Mr. Haggard learned that he had a lot to learn about Marijuana.

Lebron James, Clint Eastwood, Pussy Generation and Cannabis Legalization



Merle's saga is important because it shows  a transformation that the country is making now:  Enlightenment, moving from ignorance and disinformation - to experience and valid information.


"We don't smoke Marijuana in Muskogee;
We don't take no trips on LSD
We don't burn no draft cards down on Main Street;
We like livin' right, and bein' free.

I'm proud to be an Okie from Muskogee,
A place where even squares can have a ball
We still wave Old Glory down at the courthouse,
And white lightnin's still the biggest thrill of all

We don't make a party out of lovin';
We like holdin' hands and pitchin' woo;
We don't let our hair grow long and shaggy,
Like the hippies out in San Francisco do".


“At the time I wrote ‘Okie From Muskogee,’ I didn’t smoke, It was 1968. I thought it was responsible for the flower children walking around with their mouths open. It was not so. But if a guy doesn’t learn anything in 50 years, there’s something wrong with him.”

Melissa Etheridge

Music Icon Melissa had breast cancer and underwent the horrors of chemo. She chose MMJ over the Elvis solution.  She credits Marijuana with helping her get through the ordeal, Marijuana was uplifting mentally and especially helpful in easing nausea and loss of appetite from chemotherapy.  Melissa has enthusiastically entered the MMJ business community with her own label of medicinal wines.

"Instead of taking five or six of the prescriptions, I decided to go a natural route and smoke Marijuana."

Whoopi Goldberg

Whoopi had terrible PMS and Glaucoma.  She too chose MMJ over the "Elvis / Monroe solution".

"These glaucoma-induced headaches come on like freight trains — like, BOOM, my head starts hurting, my eyes start bugging, my whole body starts to tense up. But then I find her, and it relaxes everything and calms everything. It helps my head stop hurting, and with glaucoma your eyes ache, and she takes the ache out. It’s wonderful.

The high is different, too. It feels like a gentle, warm breeze at the beach. It’s like someone undoing a vise grip, very slowly. It’s not overpowering — and I’m certainly not looking for that high high. I’m looking for relief."
