Research.
Research suggesting that of the 3882 studied who survived heart attacks, 124 reported using cannabis, 37 within a day of their heart attack and this may have been a factor.
Wow, that made the Gazette.
This changes everything.

that is pretty sad if this all riccardo is holding on to, as far as evidence.

dr lester grinspoon is very interesting...

he was a hater(in the 60's) before he really started to realize the benefits of cannabis.

his web site.....rxmarijuana.com is full of inspiring stories about how cannabis has helped people with a wide range of dibilitating diseases....

many of which dont live in states that have medical...or their ailment isnt presently recognized as being helped by MMJ.

the stories reminded me of other stories ive heard.

like the women with 5 kids in kansas city, with cerebal palsy...

who literally took half an hour to get a point across??/

she could speak normally after a few tokes...

I just read what Murray Mittleman, an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Public Health. That was just one source. What is your point? that smoking pot is good for the heart? how many people that have a heart attack are going to say they are pot heads?

the goal wasnt just taking out saddam to make the region more stable...

if youll wake up for a second??

youll see that the net politcial cost of invading Iraq??

was replacing a sunni dominated government with a shia dominated government....thus handing more influence to iran, which is also shite.. thus further DESTABALIZING THE REGION.

bush/cheney/rumsy/wolfy...were all convinced they could tell the iraqis what sort of government they should replace saddam with....

boy were they wrong!!

there is no "what now"

as iraq isnt a functioning society any more....

Oh dear, if you come across anything you may regard as good for your heart or good for your mind, I say grab it honey, with both hands and don't let go.
It might be your delusions or your esteem for obstreperous contention- but why not?
It couldn't be bad for your lungs.

Id say for a fool like you that it might be a good idea to use a lot of drugs, maybe at the same time.

of course it was corporate power that inspired prohibition of hemp/marijuana.
dow and dupont were working on synthetics that would chnage the world....
and they didnt just want to accomplish that!! they wanted market domination....."free markets" my a&&.
William randolph hearst and harry anslinger(head of the bureau of narcotic) colluded to launch a anti marijuana campaign.
you rememebr reefer madness>>
did smoking weed make you want to kill any one??
it is propaghanda in other words......
racist agiprop...
read "the emperor wears no clothes"
by Jack herer.
it is all laid out there..
About 20 years ago, I thought that book was crap because I found a bit too gross the idea that cannabis can cure cancer. Yet this has been confirmed and reconfirmed since, like all points made by jack Herer.
It is not normal that the media did not make the head-title on this, as it seems that the cure is more efficacious than the usual chemo and radio therapies. This explains also another curiosity. many people died from tobacco, and indeed even from second hand tobacco smoke. Then it is true that the cannabis tar contains very bad molecules capable of trigging cancer ... in vitro. But the statistics of cancer in vivo, among pot smoker does not reflect this at all (almost the contrary). The explanation is that cannabis heals and prevents more cancer than it produces it. If you can't stop smoking tobacco, at least add cannabis to it, it prevents, a little bit, the risk. Better: learn to smoke cannabis in place of tobacco.

A good link on the hidden American discovery that cannabis cures cancer, and its rediscovery in Spain later is:
