According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, about every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Globally, it is the most common type of cancer among women, but it can be diagnosed in men as well, affecting each gender regardless of size, race, or income level. There are over 3.3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States today.

    Seriously?
    The Susan G. Komen foundation spends about 80% of its donations on internal costs (awareness campaigns, advertising, legal consultants and top flight research-which never produces palpable results; for “the cure” which is a registered trademark !!!
    I am truly sad to see “Pinkwashing feel-good campaigns making their way into the cannabis mainstream.
    This must stop. This must stop NOW.

    Therefore, I urgently appeal to the people who subscribe to Leafly, and those who have approved the showcasing of these ‘pink products to resist the Super-pac corporate takeover of The Cannabis plant for its own greedy, nefarious purpose.
    SGK was a major political contributor in the 2016 Presidential Election…

    The Cannabis plant does not just kill cancer ( RSO should be a good reference reminder)- it is also a immune-stimulator in the Endocannabinoid system of the human body targeting the CB2 receptors located throughout ones body.
    Potentially, with careful and proper administration, it has been used in Israel on elderly rest home patients, with conclusive results.
    This “groundbreaking research” has hardly made its way out to the masses, because of selective groups whose influence suppresses
    the importance of these findings…they pose a threat to the well being of Medicine stakeholders and policy makers.

    Why ruin a good thing ? This “Pink” model is clearly producing good results ( highly paid salaried positions for those working hard-to not cure, but to treat-through various procedures, drugs, equipment which are not subsidized by these campaigns). Awareness and Research.
    That is what they sell. Not a remedy or counteractant. Just hope. Please give generously…for hope’s sake.

    Again, I hereby implore the policy-makers at Leafly to carefully consider allowing these corporate charlatans to invade a culture of
    self-healers. We are quite wise and savvy to their campaigns of emotion; and how that induces people to show their humanity by
    creation of events of participation: with sizeable donation dollars attached !

    Never mentioned anywhere is- get ready for it …
    PREVENTION.

    Why not ? Simply stated, its lethal to the Fundraising Industrial Complex. Let’s please call it for what it is.
    Corporate parasite infestation. And like spider mites, will quietly build their colonies, while the unsuspecting are oblivious.
    Only after a critical point is reached, it becomes visible that the plant is being overtaken by these parasites (a fitting metaphor)
    and prospects for recovery are bleak. You may liken Leafly to a Cannabis plant. Pink parasites are colonizing. Awareness is free.
    Don’t take money for it.

    I am calling out the Pink. By personal boycott.That is my own decision.Survey the facts, and draw your own conclusion.
    Be aware of feel-good campaigns… from Pinks and Movember slacktivism. We all could use a waking up.

    Responsibly yours,
    Torontosaurus Ex

    What about breast cancer among males?
    Not much awareness about that.
    Probably not that interesting anyway for the Pinks.
    Subverts their agenda.
    Live long and prosper.

    It is frustrating, but there is no attempt to censor comments. The reason for the “waiting for approval” is because Leafly has no full time moderators, therefore all comments go into a queue until staff can clear the comments.
