COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Mar 27, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Cannabis Science, Inc. a pioneering U.S. biotech company developing pharmaceutical cannabis (marijuana) products, is thrilled to announce that Muse Productions out of SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – announced today the Premier date of CHRONIC FUTURE – KILLING CANCER. The first of many Documentaries’ centering on the successful cancer treatments Cannabis Science has been reporting.
CHRONIC FUTURE – KILLING CANCER will premier on April 5th, 2012, at the Harkins Theater on Shea and Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Media are invited to the 5:00pm airing (limited seating) with a Q & A to follow. A VIP airing will start at 7:00pm. CRONIC FUTURE will remain in rotation through the month of April at this Harkins Theater.
CHRONIC FUTURE is a documentary created by Henry Miller and Cory Pritchard. It tells the story of Arizona’s Governor, Janet Brewer’s attempt to close down medical marijuana dispensaries and Allan Sobol, along with advocate attorney Tom Dean, fight to keep them. After the win in court, the story continues as it introduces patient after patient with debilitating ailment where medical marijuana healing ingredients have successfully treated the disease.
Perhaps the biggest revolution to this story is the apparent success and healing power that cannabis has when used to treat cancer patients. Cannabis Science (nasd otcbb:CBIS) is a pioneering US biotech company that is developing pharmaceutical cannabis products. Cannabis Science has worked with 4 patients who administered Cannabis Science approved extracts to self-treat basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas (skin cancer).
The film covers everything from seed to success in the political and medical arena. As the unfortunate dark side the film also illuminates and exposes the story of how the government has avoided and covered up the successful medicinal use of marijuana, and decades of hypocrisy and misdirected messaging.
Photo-documentation on the Cannabis Science website ( www.cannabisscience.com ), shows that concentrated marijuana extract, topically applied to skin cancer, dramatically reduces the tumor burden and in some cases appears to have eliminated the cancer as confirmed by biopsy.
Dr. Melamede comments, “Chronic Future is a very important film. It highlights the extent to which prohibitionists are willing to impede the voice of American Citizens as expressed at the ballot box. How is it possible that our representatives in the various levels of government are allowed to get away actions that are undemocratic, and in fact treasonous. The documentary should outrage every American.”
The objective of the CHRONIC FUTURE documentary is to tell the truth about the benefits of medical marijuana, the government cover-up, and through the power of the media, reverse the negative stigma and propaganda the government has instilled in the public since the 1930s.
