If you didn’t already know him, meet Daren McCormick.
He lives in Nova Scotia Canada and is one of “Canada’s new oilmen”.
He heals the sick, illegally.
He is prosecuted, illegally.
He has and is being detained in an Amherst facility, most likely illegally, as no signed search warrant was produced before his arrest.
The following is the information which I have been able to collect about the ongoing situation. There will be updates as they are available and I urge you to visit the included links for more in-depth information.
His garden was destroyed.
But he is NOT!
“…they were antique guns…”
There are many people on both sides of the border that are watching the developments here. The East Canada Friends Group was created on Facebook to let people follow the information forthcoming and show their support.
Kevin James, founding member of Canadian Medical Marijuana Association, has been a promoter of Rick Simpson and RSO from the beginning. He was also involved with the Marijuana Party of Canada in Ontario during 2003. He also works with Americans for Cannabis.
Donna Thibodeau is a avid follower and patient of Daren as well. She is doing all she can to help the situation. This morning she sent this message to me concerning his last appearance in Court:
“I almost put charges on the first prosecutor, if they didn’t remove him. They changed prosecutors for the afternoon. I told them that he made me feel creepy and uncomfortable. Daren has a pending case on both of them. The head drug unit was also in the room and is also on Daren’s list…”
Additionally, this was posted yesterday:
Just got of the phone with Daren Mccormick …The cops will not let him have his law books or for him to see the Warrant to see witch house it was for…The cops raided his home and his Mothers House
“I think I had an undercover Cop in my driveway yesterday”…
These were the last words that I heard from Daren McCormick before I found out that he had been arrested and his Cannabis garden destroyed on August 23rd.
Daren McCormick was growing medicine to try to help save people from Cancer in Nova Scotia, Canada. He had been successful quite a few times and has patients that will testify to the fact to prove it.
He was a member of Phoenix Tears, a Rick Simpson group out of Nova Scotia Canada.
He was/is a grower. A grower who believes in the healing power of Cannabis and has spent his adult life fighting for this cause and being persecuted for it. Yet he does not give up.
Right now, as he sits in a Amherst, Nova Scotia jail awaiting Court with no bond set as of yet, his followers are watching fervently to see what is going to happen next.
Federally, Cannabis is a legal commodity in Canada IF you are a patient – which the plants that Daren was growing was definitely for patients!
“He was going to people with hemp oil, not charging anybody for nothing, and saving people’s lives,” Albert Dwyer said.
Dwyer said he suffered from colon cancer and used marijuana oil in place of radiation and chemotherapy with positive results. According to Dwyer, McCormick’s arrest was keeping medicine from those who need it.
“Why should they put someone in jail who’s saving people’s lives,” Dwyer said. LINK
The following is a summary of the case that Daren McCormick has filed against Justice Moir for his previous 3 1/2 imprisonment :
EAST-Canada friends The following is a summary of the negligence of Justice Moir of the Supreme Court in Nova Scotia, Canada. Full copies of the direct examination can be found on the website at the bottom. Specific pages that support the allegations are listed by allegation number, volume and page at the end.
Mr. Moir had an unusual case before him involving a person in Canada who had a different belief system. Mr. Moir, while he sat on the bench and made decisions involving this self-represented individual (SRI), was willfully or negligently blind to his responsibilities.
During the trial, Mr. Moir observed several problems, and his response to each calls into question his capacity to fulfill his office.
1. Disclosure was given up to the final moments before trial. Furthermore, the SRI had limited ability to read the disclosure. Finally, the SRI had not finished reviewing the disclosure. Mr. Moir responded to these issues by ignoring them, and continuing with the trial.
2. The SRI attempted to introduce a defence of Officially Induced Error, but did not have the background in law to distinguish Officially Induced Error from Entrapment. Mr. Moir responded to this by helping support this mistake, and by explaining that entrapment was a process taken upon appeal. Further, he made several claims that if he saw an error, he would stop the proceedings himself.
3. Mr. Moir reviewed case law on the SRI and his group prior to hearing from the SRI at trial, and Mr. Moir claimed to have decided on several issues he suspected he would hear. (Due to issues, the PDF containing the main support for this may not be uploaded.)
4. The SRI brings to Mr. Moir’s attention on several occasions that the arrest was made without a warrant, and the police arrested the SRI with drawn firearms. Mr. Moir ignored these repeated remarks, and neither addressed them in open court properly or in a voir dire (a different sort of court hearing).
The evidence on arrest, if excluded, would have negated the evidence in several charges. Based on the case law and facts of the warrantless arrest, there appeared to be a good chance of success in challenging the arrest and evidence taken at the arrest if Mr. Moir had acknowledged the existence of the issue.
From the time the police claim to have made the decision to arrest the SRI, they applied for and were given a search warrant for the SRI’s father’s home. The claim that the decision was made to arrest the SRI is contradicted by police documents. This begs the question of why they did not also apply for an arrest warrant. Furthermore, based on the behavior of the SRI immediately prior to arrest, there did not appear to be any reason to arrest the SRI.
5. The SRI, when asked if he was prepared to stand trial, stated that he was not ready. This was due to an inability to review disclosure sufficiently and due to new disclosure being received ten minutes before the trial. Mr. Moir proceeded with the trial regardless.
6. During jury selection, Mr. Moir challenged a juror on behalf of the SRI, and without consent from the SRI.

PATREON.COM·10 MONTHS OLD
This is the story of a man who gave away Cannabis Oil (later to be known as RSO or Phoenix Tears). Daren was charged and was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison the day after this video was made. Daren is out of prison now, and despite having done hard time, is back in full production and continuing to grow cannabis and help those in need. CLICK ON PICTURE BELOW!
The charges are as follows, according to cumberlandnewsnow.com :
• Production of marijuana
• Possession of marihuana for the purpose of trafficking
• Possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition
• Eight counts of unsafe storage of a firearm
• Eight counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm
• Eight counts of possession of a firearm knowing possession is unauthorized
• Two counts of possession of a firearm while prohibited.
Daren has never been charged with a violent crime with a firearm to my knowledge.
In other words, there was no need to charge him with firearms violation except for the fact that they weren’t legal for him to have in possession. HOWEVER, as a person who lives in the country around a bunch of farmers, I KNOW that it is NECESSARY that anyone who is growing any kind of crops whether it be corn, potato’s, hemp or cannabis – needs to have access to a firearm! So in my opinion those charges are bogus – he is not a violent person and should not be treated as such!
No one should lose their right to possess a firearm because of a violation of the law unless it is a violent offense.
Please take the time to read about what is going on in Canada. The “legalities” of legalization are overwhelming. At any time you can become a target for arrest. For growing a plant! The same thing is happening here. The only chance we have to be a free people is to insist upon REPEAL of the regulations and Statutes that have been enacted – just to enslave us.
With that, I will leave you with this famous quote:
Kissinger: “Control oil and you control nations; control food and you control the people.” US strategy deliberately destroyed family farming in the US and abroad and led to 95% of all grain reserves in the world being under the control of six multinational agribusiness corporations LINK
There are a number of informative links that I have included for your convenience. It’s a long story…

Above is a link to the full official version of the Documentary “RUN FROM THE CURE”, released January 28, 2008.
On June 11th, Shannon Dugas, Host of “The Couch” Radio Show, interviewed Tim Simpson, long time neighbor, advocate and friend of Rick Simpson.
It is a very interesting and informative show and I urge everyone to take the time to listen to it.

One of the all-stars of the cannabis counter culture, Ronnie Lee Smith ranks right up there with Rick Simpson, Jack Herer, and many others. Ronnie, at the age of 47 regretfully passed away in Colorado, on April 3rd 2014. The cause of death is said to be complications from leukaemia.
That’s why Ronnie’s case is particularly important. That’s because Ronnie died of a disease for which he has supposedly treated others in similar situations. Ronnie, with his rocket-scientist in-the-rough intellect, was as familiar to You Tube viewers as Rick Simpson.
I watched several of his videos months earlier. He was the go-to person when a patient needed help in either obtaining Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), or getting safe, reliable advice for their condition. He was also a professional comedian and a radio-show host. He was as compassionate as he was generous.
If you had a cancer and needed RSO, he would provide it at no charge. The true sign of selflessness is giving. He certainly gave and claims to have treated hundreds of patients over the years. He even ran for sheriff in 2010 in Gallatin County Kentucky; indicating that if elected, he would provide free, on demand, cannabis oil to anyone in the county who needed it.
Yet, everyone is asking the same question. If cannabis helps treat leukaemia, why did it fail to treat Ronnie, one of the most ardent supporters of health freedom using cannabis and other alternative strategies in America?
As we know, some families seem particularly prone to cancers of many types. In Ronnie’s family cancer was running wild; his brother Lester died of lymphoma in 2003, his mother died of brain cancer—metastatic from decades of smoking and the development of stage IV lung cancer—which had spread to her brain, three days after his brother died. A couple of years after that, his father died of prostate cancer. Had any of them tried cannabis oil? It did not appear to help, if they had tried it. Which is very disappointing to say the least. But I’m only guessing since there are no further details.
It would be of great benefit to know. I personally am trying to gather a database on the efficacy of marijuana in treating cancers but the existing data is so meagre and disorganized that, for the time being, I cannot make a determination. Those that make wild claims of treating cancers, especially those that actually run dispensaries or “clinics” like the ones located in the Bay Area of California, here in the US, are not willing to share their stories save for a few cases that end up on the internet. They say that they have treated hundreds of end stage cancer victims. If so, please provide the proof we need. Reveal these cases so that others may learn of these treatments. Being secretive does not help our cause.
Ronnie Lee Smith was born on August 20, 1966 at the old St. Elizabeth North Hospital in Covington, Kentucky.
Ronnie and Rick Simpson met around 2006. In 2007, Jack Herer enlisted Ronnie’s formidable brain in editing his now classic forthcoming book The Emperor Wears No Clothes. It was around this time when something odd happened.
After Jack and Ronnie became friends, Ronnie would help out making bubble hash with trimmings from Jack’s grow operation. It was then that Ronnie Lee Smith had discovered cancerous lumps “in between each knuckle”, and “a lump hanging out of my rear.” He next describes an astonishing event. Ronnie continues:
“While making the hash I would eat a spoonful on occasion, and I did that four or five times a day for a couple months. I noticed after a month that the lumps between my knuckles got softer and after 2 months, they were gone. Jack said that he wrote in his book about a college study where they killed cancer in rats with THC in the 70’s. His wife Googled the article and in the search, she found Rick Simpson and the story about the oil. This was 2006, and we called Rick, and Rick turned out to be a big fan of Jacks, so Jack had him on the Jack Herer TV show every week. Rick said he needed someone in America to make oil and I volunteered. He sent me referrals for 3 years before he got stuck in Europe. By 2010, I had cured over 200 people. I decided to run for Sheriff and make the cure available for free to anyone in my county. Ronnie Lee Smith co-starred in the hemp documentary about Jack Herer called [[The Emperor Wears No Clothes]], which was based on his popular book.”
At this point it appears that Ronnie’s leukaemia was in remission. From discovering the nodules between his knuckles in 2006 to the year 2010 he was doing great. By his own admission he had treated over 200 people by then.
Note, before we go any further, that Ronnie had initially used bubble hash which does not involve cooking or the use of heat. Therefore, Ronnie’s initial treatment stemmed from using the carboxylated (the acid) form of THC, CBD and the remaining cannabinoids. This is in sharp contrast to RSO which is a cooked formula and therefore de-carboxylated, and presumably the most powerful variation to take for medical conditions.
In other words, these are very different oils, yet they may possess similar powerful effects. There is continuing debate on the use of acidic forms such as fresh-squeezed marijuana and hashish (eaten) versus the decarboxylated RSO-type preparations. They both seem to have potent curative properties but many insist that cancers be treated with RSO analogues. Most of what I have written about involves RSO or RSO-like essential oils.
So what went wrong? Let’s examine what took place in the months preceding his premature demise.
On April 24, 2013, while driving through Yavapai County, Arizona, Ronnie was pulled over, searched, and arrested for possession of marijuana. The Arizona State Patrol found 2 ounces of marijuana in the trunk of Ronnie’s car, plus cannabis oil (Phoenix Tears AKA RSO). It was during a protracted jail sentence that he was not able to use RSO and this ultimately may have led to his death. Sometime between April and June of 2013, while Ronnie was in the Yavapai County Jail for over 3 months, the State of Arizona never allowed Ronnie to take his medical marijuana to prevent his leukaemia from regenerating.
On February 25, 2014, during a Bobby Pickles podcast, Ronnie Lee Smith explained how his cancer regenerated while he was in the Arizona jail. “I got arrested in Arizona and went to jail for my medical marijuana, which I told the cop was for cancer. So I was in jail for 3 months and developed hardcore leukaemia while I was in there, and then they had rushed me to Emergency Room and got me a [blood] transfusion. That was the only way I got out of jail, because they released me because I was dying and they didn’t want to pay the hospital bill.” … “They finally had to rush me to the hospital for a blood transfusion where they diagnosed me with leukaemia and said I would be dead in 2 weeks.”
As I have written previously some forms of leukaemia appear to be treatable using cannabis oil. The acute leukaemia being more difficult while the chronic forms and the paediatric leukaemia are the easiest to put into remission.
Do not underestimate the power of stress to induce illness or to reverse remissions in cancers. It’s the one problem that most people do not emphasize enough. Stress kills. Here’s a man with a deadly leukaemia which he had been able to keep in remission for at least six years. Now take away his medication and throw him into probably the unhealthiest, stressful, squalid condition possible and watch your cancer grow.
Prison food is notoriously unhealthy. Lacking in micro-nutrients, high in pesticide residues, high in sugars and carbohydrate—the preferred food for cancer cells to grow, and lacking in living nutrients. It’s not too much of a leap to suggest that three months of processed junk food contributed to decreasing his immunity. Add to that lack of sunlight exposure. Vitamin D is a potent anti-cancer hormone.
What I find astonishing is how law enforcement withheld his medication in a medical marijuana state. They knew that it could lead to a regrowth of his cancer and an early demise, yet did nothing.
Lastly there is some speculation that some of the last cannabis oil Ronnie took may have been tainted. Ronnie’s ex-wife presumably had some analysed but there is no further information.
