Nancy Pelosi: ‘Cannabis…Is a Therapy That Has Proven Successful’ for COVID-19
By Terence P. Jeffrey | July 31, 2020 | 2:51pm EDT


(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) countered a reporter's statement that the HEROES Act included elements that were “not directly related to COVID”--such as a provision allowing banks to do business with marijuana retailers--by stating that “cannabis…is a therapy that has proven successful” in dealing with COVID-19.

“Republicans and the administration got a lot of heat when they released their bill because there was a lot of unrelated things in there, including money for the FBI building, money for the defense, to replenish the wall,” the reporter said to Pelosi.

Only when combined with $12/pint ice cream, however. :whistle:

Nancy's therapy of choice.

During a press conference on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) defended including cannabis in the House’s coronavirus legislation and argued cannabis “is a therapy that has proven successful” and is related to coronavirus.

Pelosi was asked, “Republicans and the administration got a lot of heat when they released their bill. Because there was a lot of unrelated things in there, including money for the FBI building, money for defense to replenish the wall. There’s some things in your bill that’s not directly related to COVID, like they’re talking about cannabis or the SALT reduction. Are those things that you’re willing to also strip out of the bill?”

Pelosi responded, “Well, I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this. This is a therapy that has proven successful, and it is by no means of the caliber of money or misrepresentation that remodeling the federal building is for over a billion dollars so that another hotel doesn’t come in there and compete with the president’s hotel. That’s what that’s all about. That has nothing to do with the coronavirus. So, we’re going to have to come to some compromise on the legislation. I just don’t accept that there’s any equivalence in what you put forth there.”

Pot treats Covid-19?   So people with compromised lungs are supposed to smoke pot to improve that lung function?   

Does anyone have any doubt... that Pelosi is just pandering to the drug-addicts in her district.  What's next?  Heroin as a sure cure to Covid-19?   She's certifiably nuckin futz.

Probably by a lot of independent research all over the nation....

So introducing smoke into the lungs of someone suffering from a serious lung ailment is a good idea?

And they gave Trump hell for his cures?  Wow....

Perhaps she was referring to CBD oil??  I see it as a possibility -- but the research was done by a dental college in Georgia -- so I don't think there' enough research and because it is CBD oil, I doubt that the research will be given much consideration.

CBD may help avert lung destruction in COVID-19

Cannabidiol, or CBD, may help reduce the cytokine storm and excessive lung inflammation that is killing many patients with COVID-19, researchers say.

While more work, including clinical trials to determine optimal dosage and timing, is needed before CBD becomes part of the treatment for COVID-19, researchers at the Dental College of Georgia and Medical College of Georgia have early evidence it could help patients showing signs of respiratory distress avoid extreme interventions like mechanical ventilation as well as death from acute respiratory distress syndrome.

"ARDS is a major killer in severe cases of some respiratory viral infections, including severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and we have an urgent need for better intervention and treatment strategies," says Dr. Babak Baban, immunologist and interim associate dean for research at DCG and corresponding author of the study in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research..........

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

Except... she specifically mentioned cannabis, not CBD oil.   And let us not forget... that Pelosi is a lying, detestable "bitch w/a C" who, while accusing Trump of causing deaths... couldn't care LESS about all of the deaths in her own district, city, area, etc..... and then she has the ballz to say "let's be prayerful".   I know who it is that she prays to.  I call him Lucy for short.

Yes, she did specifically state cannabis, but then again were talking about Nutty Nancy who isn't playing with a full deck anymore.
