Any serious studies being done on the effects of Autoimmune conditions like Cancer and MS with Cannabis? Why is no one talking abut that?

There is already a highly effective prescription drug that stops the progression of MS in over 90% of cases and has virtually no side effects, called low dose naltrexone. It is irrational that autoimmune diseases are still treated with immunosuppressants instead of immunostimulants.

1. Mr. Steinberg: You did a nice job with this article.

2. About low dose naltrexone: there is anecdotal evidence that it helps some people -- but the claim that it stops the progression in 90% of MS patients is just nonsense. Julie Stachowiak, an epidemiologist with a Ph.D in public health from Johns Hopkins who has MS and blogs about it at - http://ms.about.com - has just started using naltrexone and will be writing about her experience over the coming months. I recommend that MS patients interested in LDN follow her progress.

No matter how anyone wants to interpret it, this "second generation" technology embryonic stem cell would have the same genetic material and the same capabilities as the "first generation" technology embryonic stem cell. The cells are created by going backwards, introducing a handful of gene to reprogram the DNA of an adult cell, so that the cell reverts back to the state of a newly fertilized egg.
