Pure, Natural Coca Leaf – A Healing Gift Of The Divine Plant

Legalize Coca Leaf Medicines & Save The US Health Care System

Leave a comment

Diabetes, Cancer, Alzheimer’s and Heart Disease eat up well over 50% of the costs in the American health care system, and yet simple, natural Coca Leaf medicines – simple teas and tonics really – could virtually eliminate the bulk of the costs associated with Heart Disease and Diabetes, and could significantly reduce the costs associated with Alzheimer’s and Cancer.

But of course reduced costs would mean reduced profits for a host of players, so even though millions of lives could be saved and vast suffering and pain could be eliminated Coca Leaf medicines are not going to happen in America without some other reason. So how about this for a reason – saving tens of billions of health care dollars and keeping those savings right in the pockets of millions of Americans?

Considering the dramatic increases in health insurance costs being imposed on every single American by Obamacare, doesn’t it make sense for at least one state to take the initiative, legalize the importation of Coca Leaf by licensed Medical Marijuana dispensaries, and then research the impact on health care costs of people having access to this natural healing medicine? A state like Oregon, Washington, California or Colorado could take the lead in this initiative and would no doubt have such popular support that the Federal Government could simply be told to fuck off.

A quick glance at this graph should convince any sane person that health care costs are on a path to destroy Americans’ financial lives.

The dramatic increases in health care costs caused by out-of-control Pig Pharma, combined with the mandatory participation in Obamacare, means that the burden of higher insurance costs are being imposed primarily on the young and middle-aged. These are the people who have been the driving force behind the legalization of Medical Marijuana, and since they are the ones who will suffer most financially from Obamacare, I hope that they will come together and demand that Coca Leaf be made a legal, unregulated, freely available natural medicine as a health care cost containment strategy.
