Nancy Pelosi says cannabis ‘has been proven’ as a ‘successful’ COVID-19 treatment

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was just caught in the act of touting an entirely unproven treatment for COVID-19 — something that Democrats have relentlessly hammered Trump for allegedly doing since April. 

Donald Trump has touted a number of studies showing that the anti-malarial hydroxychloroquine shows promise as an experimental treatment for COVID-19, and Democrats along with the mainstream media have run a months-long smear campaign against him for recommending a drug that isn’t officially approved for coronavirus.

However, Nancy Pelosi had no problem turning around and touting cannabis as “a therapy that has proven successful” for COVID-19. You read that right — Cannabis.

The best evidence available to back up Pelosi’s claims that cannabis has any relevance to the COVID-19 treatment conversation is a report from CBS News in mid-July that some experts from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute have recommended that studies should be launched to explore the possibility of using CBD — a compound found in cannabis — as a therapy for COVID-19.

From CBS:

Experts from the University of Nebraska and the Texas Biomedical Research Institute are recommending that scientists study the anti-inflammatory properties in CBD as a potential treatment for lung inflammation caused by the coronavirus.

There is no scientific evidence that cannabis or its compounds can help with COVID-19 specifically, but in a peer-reviewed article in Brain, Behavior, and Immunity, the authors said further research is needed to understand if CBD can help patients infected by the virus.

Conversely, there are at least 12 studies already published showing that under the right circumstances, hydroxychloroquine is an effective therapy for COVID-19 — some are peer-reviewed, and some are observational.

Pelosi’s comments came on Friday when reporters asked her why the hotly-debated forthcoming Phase 4 coronavirus rescue package includes provisions supporting the cannabis industry.

“I don’t agree with you that cannabis is not related to this,” she told reporters. “This is a therapy that has proven successful,” going on to attack Republican counter-proposals to the Democrat bill produced in May.

Shockingly — or not — there has been very little mainstream media coverage of Pelosi’s touting of an actually unproven treatment for coronavirus.

      1. She’s probable been using it for quite some time because at her age its hard to get around and she will take the illegal way out first and foremost. Remember she is always above the law. HAAAHAAAHAAA!!!!!!

  1. I guess if you die “HIGH’ you dont know its happening or dont care. . ..COME TO THINK ABOUT IT SHE APPEARS TO BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE EVERY DAY

  2. What other mind altering drugs are the Democrats using to cause their convoluted thinking? Communism is their favorite sport!

  3. Is Pelosi touting Cannibis As a cure for COVID 19 now ? Has she or her husband just bought a bunch of stock in the product ? Seems strange she’s shouting about it as a cure now. I would be suspicious of this crazy woman and not believe one thing that comes out of her evil mouth .

    1. She said treatment theropy…..not cure.
      Anywho….then why do dems wanna keep it off the market…..
      Because she lines her purse with the money she gets from big pharma.
      Its more about the money.!

  4. With pelosi it figures , what else do you expect from a career organized crime , seditious , treasonous , anti-America -soros buddy / NWO agenda criminal skank like her ?

  5. Her plan is obvious. If people are ‘stoned’,
    they’ll either vote her way, or…not at all.
    Even after all these years, I thought
    that Nancy couldn’t possobly sink any lower,
    ….and she just proved proved me wrong!!

  6. Lord help me, if I start coming up with illusions like her.
    “Fake News,”can’t you report that she obviously inhaled?
    Nancy, it’s time for you to retire.

  7. Any believers and follower of ms piggy Piglousy are as ignorant, stupid and dumb As well. Of course if you’re always stoned inhaling CBD you’ll always think you’re fine and in control. CBD is frying their brain cells to the point they become Brain dead zombies. Piglousy is smoking too much of the stuff that her brain cells are almost depleted. ZERO!! NONE!! GONE PERIOD!!

    1. You know Mr. Aguon if you would kindly educate yourself on a subject that is obvious you know nothing about so I will give you some things to look into yourself. The first thing is CBD does not contain THC. THC is the compound that gives you the euphoria (The high). CBD is already in your DNA. The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a bodily system made up of neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors (endocannabinoids) and cannabinoid receptor proteins. Cannabinoid receptor proteins are located across the vertebrate central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.

  8. This “THING” …. Crazy Nancy Pelosie needs to be kicked the hell out of Our Congress …period!!!! Are or are they not … Congress Members have to be “Sane – in their right mind,” to hold any Federal Office as such a in Our United States Congress???????

    WTF!!!!!!!!

      1. and don’t leave out SLIM JER NADLER, all 4 are 100 ++++ % UNFIT to HOLD a ELECTED position in GOVERNMENT ( city, county, state, or federal). And locking them up until SATAN comes for them , is being nice.

  9. It appears that PEWLOSI has jumped into a race with BIDEN to see who can get to the Funny Farm First …. what a great mind she has !

  10. Pelosi just had to endorse something because Trump did. Only problem his works hers does not. After all the democrats have been murdering Trump for his endorsement so why not her?

  11. Now that explains it! Nutty Nancy hammered President Trump for suggesting that hydroxychloroquine could be or might be a therapeutic medication to help against this virus. She made a national televised statement that he wasn’t a doctor and was unqualified to make such a recommendation and railed him for admitting he was taking the drug.
    Now, Nutty Nancy is proclaiming she is qualified and or certified to make a claim that cannabis or a component of it, is a therapeutic way to manage Covid-19. So let me get this straight, whatever the President recommends is invalid but if Nutty Nancy recommends it, it’s valid. Appears to me that Nutty Nancy will never and has never acknowledged that Donald Trump is the President of the United States. SHE has stated he was impeached and is not a legitimate President. So, Nutty Nancy doesn’t care at all about the chain of command since Mike Pence would be the President if he (Trump) had really been impeached and removed from office. This is very dangerous! Nutty Nancy believes she is the Commander in Chief! STOP THESE PEOPLE BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! TRUMP MUST WIN 2020!

    1. Hydroxychloroquine will keep you from getting it and if you have symptoms, the hydroxychloroquine, zinc and Azythromax is the cure.

  12. what they say to take, I’ll take the opposite. VOTE out the IDIOTS, in November 3rd 2020. Then to start off 2021, let have a 3 day grouping trial for TREASON, 20 or 30 of the demoCOMMUNIST formerly elected and their crews .

  13. All of yall need to be educated on cbd. Cnd has no thc in it. The thc os what gets you high. Try doing research on cbd before you judge what it does. Ive been doing cbd for years now and i have no pain and sleep very well.

  14. Which of Swamp Queen Pelosi’s relatives own a pot farm Or s it just that she and her husband own stock in the pot industry? Something surely has effected her warped thinking on this.

  15. CBD and “Pot” are NOT the same thing. Marijuana and Hemp are in the same plant family, but full-spectrum CBD has NONE of the THC which causes euphoric highs. The body actually has CBD receptors, as the body actually manufactures these chemicals internally and there are many wonderful benefits to having adequate amounts of CBD in the body. PLEASE, take the time to become educated in its benefits. Learn why and who had the whole cannabis plant family criminalized. The perpetrator was actually a Secretary of the Treasury whose pharmaceutical interests and synthetic nylon production (vs hemp used for cloth, rope and other products since George Washington) would be infringed upon if the benefits of CBD were allowed to continue. He hoodwinked Congress and had it banned. STUDY and know the facts!

  16. I find it intriguing at best to see the extent to which some of these Democrats will go toin an effort to discredit this President and get the support from a sea of empty chairs (if you will) from which they are gaining support from. I am totally amazed at some of the tactics that are employed and implied from the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff(of course he as been rather quiet recently) Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer and others. Surely they must realize that even a 9 or 10 year old child would be able to realize that they are lying. yet, there are actually grown adults who are still supporting what facts prove are lies. It is amazing.

  17. Pelosi is all in for science as long as it agrees with whatever she claims. Most of the time science facts do not support her claims.
