Israel, on the other hand is leading the way on studying the medical benefits of marijuana.
Pot has been researched for years, it's nothing new. Now take another hit.

Because despite its medical benefits, pot is still not just illegal, but schedule 1, in the US.

Also, when I say pot cures cancer, I have given the references, which provide all the details you need. There are thousand of cancers, and the benefits have been proved only for 173 forms. In some case it cures completely, in other case it shrink the tumor, etc. Pot can cure some sciatica very efficaciously too. You can find a good cannabis dictionary of all diseases whose cure benefits from pot. Pot seems to have a large spectrum of medical use, because it seems to act at some deep level on the immune system, white cells, etc.

I am not a big fan of pot, but I do care about politicians lying and hiding facts about health (and not just health). This endangers the quality of life, if not life itself, of all those I care about. About cannabis it is beyond any reasonable doubts that they have lie to us since the start.

The illegality of cannabis is just a symptom of a graver problem, a sort of confusion between means and goal in economy, which eventually give the power to the bandits and criminals.

on the other hand I am a fan of pot..

and asian guy is a serious rethuglican hater of weed...

dont bother trying to convince a hard head like him, of anything...

and riccardo had one bad experience.....and since he too, is a one dimensional thinker, like asian guy??

he thinks NOBODY benefits from the medicinal properties of pot.

how silly huh??

but then again were talking about someone who hates poor people, so it is no suprise he hates MMJ patients.....we are a lower, middle income group...

that is really the root of it.

if you read some of his other, hitleresque diatribes on other threads?? you would know what I meant..

he regularly advocates genocide for the japanese and palastinians..

Don't say what I think, just say what you think. I have smoked pot going back years, I used it to get high. I quit years ago and then tried it for medical reasons, it didn't help..okay? I never said NOBODY benefits from pot. Many do. I'm all for Medical pot. I doubt 90% of the pot users that got a medical card really are using it for a medical reason. They are selling it and using it to get high. I'm for it to be legal, just stop making the claims it cures this and that, just admit you like the feeling of being "high" and move on. Many of the people using pot for cancer and other ailments get more benefits from the oil, not the bong.

then be more precise in your posts.....

you often make it sound like MMJ is worthless....

which it isnt.

if it was??

I wouldnt be prohibited...

it contains many properties not yet realized.

you say reseach has been on going for years??

in the US???? not that much actually?

compare it to how much money has been spent developing chemotherapy drugs....

and that is JUST one area where MMJhas shown promise.

there are many.

it is people with emperical knowledge of its effects on the ground....that would be a great source of knowledge to tap into.

but currently you can still get expelled from your college for smoking in the dorm(would you get expelled for drinking?)

so MMJ research isnt the first thing that federal auditors and legislators think of when they are designing grants and other gifts to acedemia.

....and not he first thing that school administators think of when they are designing their budgets...

people are still DISBELIEVERS!!

and that ignorance is the problem.

every day, run of the mill MMJ patients would be a great source of info for research??

but currently?? they are being harrased to no end by the federal government. SO, participating in collegate studies might not be their highest priority.

Wow. Look at who's trying for the middle of the road- nice buddy. There's a change. Just a tip, usually it's for turning not for travel.
And Medical Dispensary Cannabis is priced to discourage resale- it's not like Valium or OxyContin-you could produce it for yourself but at a price. If the market price is less than the cost of production you have a real reason to buy.
Controlling these factors helps to determine the producers the customers and the market.

exactly, were not advocating studying the science off bong hits....

that area HAS been fully researched..

I know because I used to do some of it...

the science of what is contained in the 400 chemical compound is what is exciting right??

big pharma is scared whitless.....

for obvious reasons....

It came from the pot website...NORML

and from the420times.com

Are you saying a pot site is not accurate? why would a pot site be putting out a high figure?

cheaper yes....

patients prefer purchasing medicine from dispensaries because they can find the strain they want.....

each strain and sub strain has a unique chemical make up, and thus must be considered different kinds of medicine...

and it is.... a science surrounding that aspect of MMJ, is emerging online.

formal research of the effects of different strains is only being conducted at places like oaksterdam U.

and other small facilities that value MMJ and dare to cross the feds...

i always found it fishy that the feds go RIGHT after those who are doing research....they are henchmen for big pharma, just like the eradication crews...

In truth??

all patients who consult with their doctors, over strain reccomendations, are doing "research" on the topic...
