Every woman is at risk for breast cancer. Every 12 minutes a woman in America dies of breast cancer. Breast cancer is the most common malignancy. The #UnitedStates has the 9th highest incidence of breast cancer. #Belgium has the highest. About 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2018. A manโ€™s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. Older woman are more likely to develop breast cancer. Breast cancer rates are low in women under 40. Less than 5% of women diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S. are younger than 40. Rates increase after age 40 and are highest in women over age 70. The median age of diagnosis of breast cancer for women in the U.S. is 62. The median is the middle value of a group of numbers, so half of the women were diagnosed before age 62 and half were diagnosed after age 62. The median age of diagnosis varies by race and ethnicity. #Blackwomen tend to be diagnosed at a younger age than white women. The median age for black women is 59 compared to 63 for white women. Breast cancer is thought of as a womanโ€™s disease, but men can also develop a form of breast cancer. Each year, over 400 men die from breast cancer. Breast cancer incidence of new cases is slightly lower among #AfricanAmerican women than among white women. But breast cancer mortality is higher in African-American women. Breast cancer mortality was 39 percent higher in African-American women than in white women. A main reason behind the differences is when a woman gets a mammography screening. Women who donโ€™t have health insurance are much less likely to get mammograms than women with health insurance. In 2013 women ages 40 and older only 38 percent of those with no health insurance had a mammogram in the past 2 years. #HistoricallyBlackInCannabisUniversity #Fcancer #BCAM #BreastCancerMonth #IAmHBCannU #BeingHBCannU #WeAreHBCannU www.HBCannU.com

That's a significant increase compared to 1990, when Black Women were 17% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women and are more likely to develop breast cancer at a younger age. Breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death among black women, surpassed only by lung cancer. #Triplenegativebreastcancer is the more aggressive and have poorer #prognosis , in part because there are currently no targeted therapies for these tumors. Some studies suggest black women are more likely to be diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer as a result of #African ancestry, while others find the cause to be related more to certain behavioral risk factors, such as reproductive patterns that are relatively more common in black women (including giving birth to more than one child, early age at first pregnancy, and lower rates of breastfeeding). #Cannabis can slow the growth of #tumors by hindering their ability to hijack #BloodVessels for their own purposes, hampering the migration of #CancerCells throughout the body, and it actually speeds the death of these uncontrollable multiplying cells while leaving the healthy cells intact. The cannabis plant is the only plant that shares a #cannabinoid system with humans. #HistoricallyBlackInCannabisUniversity #Fcancer #BCAM #BreastCancerMonth #BreastCancerAwareness #iamHBCannU #weareHBCannU #livingHBCannU www.HBCannU.com

Lord, help me, that was my immediate response when I was diagnosed with breast cancer," Betty I. Thomas said. Her confession occurred Saturday as an almost silent rain offered a baptism for people gathered together for the 10th annual #HealingStreamBreastCancerAwareness 5K Walk/Run inside Cadwalader Park in #Trenton , N.J. Audrey Walker, one of about a dozen Healing Stream members, stretched a smile across her face and looked toward heaven. "Those clouds may be up there but you gotta look closer, #LA I can see the sun," she rejoiced. "We're getting more support and we're getting more information out. to the community, that's really the main objective.We have many people in this community who are unaware of the issues involving #breast cancer. This walk highlights the issue and offers information for people going through this health issue. Early detection matters. More importantly, people diagnosed with breast cancer should know, need to know, that they don't have to go through this alone." Walker discovered her breast cancer situation during a self-examination. "I found mine 13 years ago during a self-examination. Found that lump and called my doctor -- immediately," Walker remembered. "Called him Friday and the following Monday I had a #mammogram which eventually showed some cancerous cells which lead to a lumpectomy. And then a year later, cancer appeared again and I went through #chemotherapy . Thirteen years later, hear I am. But I will say that I'm alive today because of early detection." The Healing Stream event attracted a predominantly #AfricanAmerican audience of women and men. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes disparate cancer death statistics for African American women compared to their #Caucasian female sisters. #HistoricallyBlackInCannabisUniversity #Fcancer #BCAM #BreastCancerMonth #BreastCancerAwareness #iamHBCannU #weareHBCannU #livingHBCannU www.HBCannU.com

๐Ÿƒ #HBCannU ๐Ÿƒ #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸƒโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ Kalakuta Diaries tells stories of the seamy side of life in Felaโ€™s iconoclastic home and lot more. It could be outlawed elsewhere, but smoking of weeds wasnโ€™t in his republic tof course he prefers to call it โ€œ#AfricanGrass โ€ and if you couldnโ€™t charge cows and goats for grazing on grass, why should you charge Fela for feasting on natureโ€™s grassy environment? That was his contention, but the Nigerian ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ government didnโ€™t just buy into his grassy defence. #Cannabis has been outlawed in #Nigeria for many decades, and Fela wasnโ€™t to be treated like a scared cow. On many occasions, the minions of the law were after the #Afrobeat king, and the lead-up to his arrest and arraignment in court was always melodramatic. Donโ€™t forget, no #Nigerian soldier, soon after it was released, loved his song, #Zombie . The songโ€™s lyrics ofย โ€˜Zombie no go unless you tell am to go/ Zombie no go stop unless you tell am to stopโ€™ย was a scathing commentary on their soulless lives and that of total submission to the military command to maim and kill without compunction. On one particular occasion, a group of soldiers, led by the late Major General #MusaBamaiyi , was nosing about in the #Kalakuta Republic to get a whiff of him smoking marijuana in order to arraign him and possibly put him behind bars. That opportunity came when the cops caught him red-handed one day with a mould of marijuana. To them, that was it: the maverick musician would soon be cut out from the world and, therefore, wouldnโ€™t trouble anybody anymore or serve as a negative influence on the youths. But #Fela could play the James Bond sometimes, and so he did. Aware that catching him with prohibited marijuana was too empirical an evidence to be condoned, Fela instantly swallowed the stuff. The cops were perplexed by his brazen attitude, beat him up and whisked him away to the dreaded Alagbon police station. But another drama was yet to unfurl. The police and the nation waited for Fela to defecate the swallowed marijuana, but he didnโ€™t twenty-four hours later. His daily ration of vegetable soup had dissolved the marijuana. Thus, Fela was let go.
๐Ÿƒ @HBCannU ๐Ÿƒ #BlackInCannabis #CannabisLiteracy ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸƒโœŠ๐ŸพโœŠ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿƒ #FelaAnikulapoKuti , born in #Abeokuta , #Nigeria in 1938, was a singer-composer, trumpet, sax and keyboard player, bandleader, and politician. #Kuti was one of #Africa 's most controversial musicians and throughout his life he continued to fight for the rights of the common man (and woman) despite vilification, harassment, and even imprisonment by the government of Nigeria. Born to #Yoruban parents, Kuti was strongly influenced by both parents, his mother being #Funmilayo , a leading figure in the nationalist struggle. Practically all of his records are dominated by political events and discussions from the approach of #PanAfricanism . In 1954, Kuti joined the Cool Cats as a singer in that highlife band (highlife being the rage of the #Lagos music scene at the time). During this period Kuti developed his own unusual sound which he described as highlife-jazz. In 1968 Kuti announced the arrival of #Afrobeat , within the year was promoting his sound all over the #USA on a 10-month tour where he became influenced by American jazz. When he returned to his homeland he opened a nightclub, the Shrine, and changed the name of his band to Africa 70 (and later to Egypt 80). His bands traditionally included the typical huge line-up consisting of many singers and dancers, numerous saxophonists, trumpeteers, drummers, percussionists, and of course, many guitarists blending African rhythms and jazz horn lines with politicized song lyrics. His music was intricate, rather than calling it Afro-beat you might more arguably consider it #Afrojazz . Entire recordings often consisted of just a few songs and this propensity for jamming set up a roadblock for Fela to attain commercial acceptance in the United States. He also abhored performing a song after recording it, and this led to audience disinterest in the U.S. where the people wanted their music to be recognizable hits. Fela Anikulapo Kuti died on Saturday, August 2, 1997, at 4pm (local time) in Lagos, Nigeria.

This disparity is well documented. Just a few years ago, the #AmericanCivilLibertiesUnion reported that #AfricanAmericans were nearly 4 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession than whites, even though use of the drug was roughly equal among both populations. Prop 64 not only promised to reduce or expunge certain past convictions, it also presented employment opportunities in the newly legalized cannabis industry as a gateway to the middle class for many underserved communities. As the head of a statewide organization that supports many minority-owned cannabis businesses, I know firsthand that black communities are not seeing the promised opportunities of this new marketplace being realized. Since Prop 64 was implemented back in January of this year, less than 15 percent of California cities are operating functional, licensed cannabis markets. Thereโ€™s more: Recently, the stateโ€™s Bureau of Cannabis Control has notified more than 900 cannabis-related businesses across the state to cease operation because they are unlicensed. These dispensaries, delivery services, cultivators, brands and farms โ€“ many of them owned by or employing people of color โ€“ were perfectly โ€œcompliantโ€ for decades before Jan. 1. The barriers of entry to licensure are incredibly high, whether it be fees or unduly high state and local taxes. Combined with local bans, this is leaving no path for small, minority-owned and operated businesses to get a foot in the legal market. Breaking down these walls will be key to ensuring more diversity of applicants and allowing the licensed market to triumph over the illegal market. #HistoricallyBlackInCannabisUniversity #IAMBlackInCannabis #WEAREBlackInCannabis #BEINGBlackInCannabis www.BlackInCannabis.com
