“WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER”
the chemicals found in marijuana prevent and even heal
several deadly cancers? Could the tumor-regulating properties of
“cannabinoids” someday replace the debilitating drugs, chemotherapy,
and radiation that harms as often as it heals?
Discover the truth about this ancient medicine as world-renowned scientists in the field of cannabinoid research illustrate their truly mind-blowing discoveries in this feature-length documentary.
Using original and archival footage, the film presents controversial but highly convincing evidence that this forbidden herb has healing properties beyond any other plant on the planet— interacting as it does with the body’s own “endocannabinoid system” to keep us fit and disease-free.
“What if Cannabis Cured Cancer” explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the “endocannabinoids” inside us—along with any cannabinoids we ingest—fit together like a key in a lock. Thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body’s healthy cells.
Like the old parable of the beggar who was sitting on a treasure chest but never bothered to look inside, governments and the medical establishment have been slow to realize the miraculous anti-cancer properties of marijuana. Finally, in this extraordinary documentary, the truth comes out.

|“KURT CANNABIS MEETS CONNIE CANCER”
Comedy Puppet Short
Included on the DVD of “What if Cannabis Cured Cancer”
Directed by master puppeteer, Steven Ritz-Barr, "Kurt Cannabis Meets Connie Cancer", is an outrageous bit of puppet theater, imagining a comical meeting, somewhere in the liver, between the mean, bitchy, diva, "Connie Cancer" (voiced by Roseanne Barr), and the cool, hip, and rather wise, Kurt Cannabis ("A Clockwork Orange" star, Malcolm McDowell). Their witty banter builds into a battle of wills, as evil Connie tries to destroy all the healthy cells in her way, while mellow Kurt is equally determined to stop her in her tracks. The comedy short ends with perhaps one of the funniest death scenes in puppet history. Written by Len Richmond, with creations by the great Russian puppetmaker, Eugene Seregin.
“EVERYTHING BAD IS GOOD"
More and more people are rejecting their doctor’s advice, pharmaceutical drugs, hospitalization, and surgery. They simply don’t trust the system anymore and realize that the profit motive, the merchandising of medical services, and the unwillingness of many doctors to open their minds are informing too many disastrous medical decisions. These progressive patients are taking control of their health and looking for their own cures.
Award-winning BBC filmmaker Len Richmond interviews survivors of cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening illnesses, who, after being given a death sentence by conventional doctors, went on to heal themselves solely with natural means (herbs, diet, etc). Len also speaks to renegade medical doctors, Ayurvedic healers, and Chinese herbalists who firmly believe that there is another way, a better way.
“Everything Bad is Good” is an entertaining, witty, one-hour documentary that captures an exciting new movement that’s transforming the way people think about their health and mortality. This film may save your life.
Certain to be attacked by the medical establishment and pharmaceutical interests, “Everything Bad is Good” is a daring work of art and revolution.
WRITER/DIRECTOR - Len Richmond
All Movie Guide: With an
extended television background that includes writing work on such
popular shows as Three's Company in the U.S. and Agony in the U.K.,
writer-turned-director Len Richmond honed his storytelling skills on
the small screen for just over two decades before opting to step into
the director's chair for the comedy A Dirty Little Business. His
award-winning television series, Agony, has been broadcast in 36
countries including twice on PBS.
Its American spin-off, The Lucie Arnaz Show, ran on CBS. A subsequent move to Paris found Richmond lending his pen to the French detective series Le Chinois, starring Charles Aznavour; with a stint on the highly-rated U.K. beauty salon comedy Split Ends following later that same year. In the decade following his work on Split Ends, Richmond eschewed television writing in favor of penning articles for such well-known magazines as Cosmopolitan and Forum, where he served an extensive stint as a popular sex-advice columnist.
Though his editorial work on The Gay Liberation Book and the publication of his first novel, Naked in Paradise, may have signaled a shift away from his original career as a television writer, film reviews for The Time Out Film Guide as well as celebrity profiles in Time Out Interviews showed a writer still very much taken by the entertainment industry. Richmond cemented his devotion to the screen by writing and directing, A Dirty Little Business. An independent comedy starring Michael York as a Russian entrepreneur in search of the American dream. A Dirty Little Business offered a gleefully irreverent behind-the-scenes look at the American sex-toy industry and featured a bouncing pop soundtrack by London techno-pop duo Erasure.
