Police Drug Tests are a Fraud

Drug test kits used by police are total science fraud: They produce positive results 70% of the time, no matter what is being tested

 

 

Most sane people – even a significant percentage of law enforcement authorities – now freely admit that the War on Drugs has been a complete and utter failure.

 

It’s been a costly war, both in financial and human terms. Millions of Americans are serving time in prison for minor non-violent drug offenses, while billions of dollars are still being wasted in a futile effort to stop drug use in our nation – an effort which many believe is more about preserving big budgets for law enforcement agencies than anything else.

 

An unknown number of completely innocent citizens have been the victims of false positive results of drug-testing kits routinely used by law enforcement authorities. These kits have been shown to produce up to 70 percent false positive results for marijuana and other drugs.

 

Drinking tea and visiting gardening stores warrants SWAT team raids?

 

In an almost unbelievably unfair recent case, a Kansas couple was denied justice by a federal judge after being the victims of a SWAT raid on their home in which authorities falsely suspected them of growing marijuana.

 

The bizarre series of events began when Robert Harte and his son visited a garden supply store where they purchased hydroponic equipment to be used for a tomato-growing science project for the boy’s school.

 

From The Washington Post:

 

“A state trooper had been positioned in the store parking lot to collect the license plate numbers of customers, compile them into a spreadsheet, then send the spreadsheets to local sheriff’s departments for further investigation. Yes, merely shopping at a gardening store could make you the target of a criminal drug investigation.

 

“More than half a year later, the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department began investigating the Hartes as part of ‘Operation Constant Gardener,’ basically a PR stunt in which the agency conducts multiple pot raids on April 20, or ‘4/20.’ On several occasions, the Sheriff’s Department sent deputies out to sort through the family’s garbage. (The police don’t need a warrant to sift through your trash.) The deputies repeatedly found ‘saturated plant material’ that they thought could possibly be marijuana. On two occasions, a drug testing field kit inexplicably indicated the presence of THC, the active drug in marijuana. It was on the basis of those tests and Harte’s patronage of a gardening store that the police obtained the warrant for the SWAT raid.”

 

The ‘saturated plant material’ turned out to be tea.

 

Is this justice?

 

After the Hartes were cleared of any wrongdoing, they spent $25,000 in lawyer’s fees to find out why they were targeted in the first place. Once they learned what had really happened, they filed a lawsuit.

 

But in late December 2015, U.S. District Court Judge John W. Lungstrum threw out all of the Harte’s claims.

 

The judge ruled that the SWAT team raid was not a violation of the Fourth Amendment, even though it was based on the flimsiest of circumstantial evidence.

 

He further ruled that the police had probable cause and that they did not use excessive force – even though the family was held at gunpoint for more than two hours while their home was searched.

 

The judge said that the Hartes had not been defamed and that the police were under no obligation to know that the test kits were faulty.

 

The Hartes say that they will probably appeal, but it’s clear that at least in Kansas, law enforcement officials and the federal district courts are still aggressively fighting the War on Drugs – no matter whether justice is being served or not.

 

It’s time we throw out these faulty drug testing kits, at the very least. The best course of action would be to completely legalize marijuana, decriminalize all other drugs, and begin treating drug dependency as a health issue – instead of continuing to support the prison industry, corrupt law enforcement agencies and the ridiculous and futile War on Drugs.

 

Enough is enough. …

Cancer Test: Cheap and Accurate

cancercells

More than 95% accurate, this early detection cancer test could save your life without the risk of radiological screenings

 

 

The second leading cause of death, cancer kills more than half a million people annually, while the cancer drug industry rakes in $100 billion each year while simultaneously causing more cancer.

 

However, this wouldn’t be the case if the cancer treatment industry was more interested in curing and preventing cancer than it is in simply just treating it.

 

The good news is that there are alternatives for preventing and curing cancer, although information on this can be difficult to access, as it’s routinely suppressed by the medical establishment and their paid-for media, who’s not interested in providing “care” unless it’s profitable or generates repeat business.

 

One of the greatest tools in beating cancer is early detection, and no, this does not mean you should include radiological imaging as part of your annual checkup, as that can cause more cancer.

 

However, a little known test called the AMAS test, or the Anti-Malignan Antibody Serum test, is incredibly beneficial for cancer screening and monitoring. The best part? It’s relatively inexpensive and over 95% accurate.

 

Developed by the brainchild of neurochemist Samuel Bogoch, M.D., Ph.D., the AMAS test “definitively determines whether or not cancer is present” by testing for anti-malignin antibodies, which are produced by all cancers.

 

How AMAS testing works

Written by nutritional biochemist Timothy J. Smith, M.D., The GcMAF Book describes the benefits of the AMAS test, as well as explains exactly how it works.

 

“Our immune system recognizes an antigenic protein on the surface of cancer cells,” which Dr. Bogoch named “malignin,” Dr. Smith wrote in Chapter 13 of his book. “When our immune system identifies the presence of malignin, it starts making anti-malignin antibodies.”

 

Dr. Smith has dedicated 40 years of his life to studying and practicing alternative, nutritional and conventional healing principles, and was instrumental in introducing acupuncture to the American medical community in the early 70s.

 

He’s written several books that focus on naturally preventing and treating common ailments such as heart disease and cancer. All three of his books are available free online here.

 

As noted in Chapter 13, the following points are pertinent to AMAS:

 

  • AMAS is a naturally occurring antibody present in serum of all people, including children.

 

  • The AMAS test accurately detects all types of early cancer.

 

  • The AMAS test is positive if any type of cancer exists anywhere in the body.

 

  • The AMAS test is more than 95% accurate. If repeated, accuracy improves to 99%. False positive and false negative rates are less than 1%.

 

  • AMAS is the earliest anticancer antibody to appear.

 

  • AMAS detects cancers long before imaging can find them.

 

  • AMAS detects cancer very early—so early, in fact, that your doctor may not yet be able to find the cancer with imaging.

 

  • Early detection dramatically increases the possibility of a permanent cure

 

  • AMAS goes down with successful cancer treatment.

 

  • Normal AMAS levels in successfully treated cancer patients indicate absence of malignancy.

 

While the AMAS test kit is free, the price of the actual test costs around $165 (USD), not including doctor’s office fees. To order a kit today, click here.

 

As Dr. Smith explains, our bodies are constantly making cancer cells, meaning anti-malignin antibodies are present at low levels in everyone all of the time; however, a healthy immune system will actively destroy cancer cells as they form.

 

But in those with a weakened immune system, cancer cells will replicate out of control, resulting in an AMAS level that will rise beyond the baseline of 135, indicating that the immune system is not working sufficiently enough, thus resulting in cancer growth.

 

“The cutoff point for a positive AMAS is 135,” wrote Dr. Smith.

 

“More than 99% of patients with cancer have AMAS levels above 135. AMAS levels below 135 are seen in normal individuals who do not have cancer.”

 

Aside from screening for cancer, AMAS can also monitor for the presence of cancer during treatment.

 

Conventional doctors dislike the test because it’s unable to detect the cancer’s type or location in the body; however, this is often unimportant for alternative cancer treatments, as they specifically target cancer cells, thus protecting healthy cells and tissues.

 

When searching for information on AMAS, many mainstream websites which are funded by the medical establishment paint the test as being inaccurate and basically a waste of time. However, don’t be fooled, as that’s an expected reaction considering that the test could significantly lower cancer rates and threaten the medical establishment’s growing annual revenue.

 

Broad-based studies on AMAS have found that dozens of researchers and medical centers have “conclusively demonstrated the value” of the test as a screening method for early cancer detection.

 

AMAS can identify breast cancer as small as a pencil dot

Not only can the AMAS test detect cancer at extremely low levels, but it can replace harmful follow-up detection methods that use radiological imaging such as CT scans, MRIs or X-rays.

 

It’s important to note that the AMAS maker recommends the test “be used in the context of good clinical judgment by a physician experienced in the treatment of cancer,” or preferably a naturopath.
