    South African Pensioner uses Cannabis Oil for Cancer


    Harry du Plessis is a South African Pensioner who lives in Durban South Africa.. A year ago he was diagnosed with Stage 4 prostate cancer, with additional kidney and liver cancer complications. He has been on insulin for the past 35 years for diabetes and has suffered from hyper tension since the age of 26.
    In November 2013 he started using cannabis oil as the doctors told him to go home and make himself comfortable as the medical world had done all they could.


    He opted for cannabis oil treatment of a gram a day in October 2013, and six months later he has been off insulin for over 4 months and his hyper tension medication has been halfed.


    Results from the medical profession show that his liver and kidneys are cancer free but official test results are expected later this week.


    Now that he is feeling better, the medical fraternity wants to put him on chemo rather than finding out the root of his cured health. Harry is determined to join other participants from 241 cities around the world who are joining the Global Cannabis March that occurs annually on the first Saturday in May.


    Harry will be marching down West Street, Durban in KwaZulu Natal South Africa – the home of Durban Poison – at 11h00 to deliver a cannabis manifesto to the Mayor of Durban on the City Hall steps.


    For more details on the Durban March please contact the co-ordinator Sarah-Jane Bow on +27 79 756 7116. To speak to Harry’s son concerning his fathers treatment contact Darrel du Plessis on +27 72 371 3722.
