‘Run from the Cure’ brings to light the injustice done to millions of people suffering from the degenerative disease, Cancer.
It tells the tale of Rick Simpson, who after surviving a serious head injury in 1997, tried to relieve his medical condition through the use of Hemp Oil and in the course found that Hemp oil, with its high concentration of T.H.C. cured cancer and other illnesses.
In a bid to help others he propagated the use of hemp oil to sufferers, curing and controlling the illnesses of hundreds of people until the day when law declared hemp oil illegal and charged Rick of possessing and trafficking marijuana; this move deprived thousands of people of getting better.
This film features interviews with people who were stopped from testifying on Rick’s behalf at the Supreme Court of Canada in the Infamous Rick Simpson Trial held on September 10, 2007; the highlight being the interview of a man who was totally cured of his ailment by the use of Hemp oil.
