23 Health Benefits Of Marijuana
Post Date: 2016-08-27 20:43:04 by Deckard

States around the country — more than 20 in total — have legalized medical marijuana.  Experts have been changing their minds too — recently, CNN's chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta reversed his opinion on medical marijuana. While recreational pot usage is controversial, many people agree with Gupta's new stance, and believe that the drug should be legal for medical uses. And even though the benefits of smoking pot may be overstated by advocates of marijuana legalization, new laws will help researchers study the drug's medicinal uses and better understand how it impacts the body. Currently only 6% of studies on marijuana analyze its medicinal ...

We rarely worry about marijuana. So why is it still a Schedule I drug? On August 11th, the Drug Enforcement Administration announced its decision to keep marijuana classified as a Schedule I drug. The federal government has historically referred to this category as the “most dangerous” group of substances, including drugs like heroin and bath salts. As a resident physician specializing in mental health, I can't make much sense of this. Every day, I talk to patients about substance abuse. Whether evaluating patients in clinic, in the emergency department, or on inpatient units, my colleagues and I screen patients for substance use. It's a ...

Massive price increases on EpiPens raise alarm Chris Woodyard and Mary Jo Layton, USA TODAY and Asbury Park (N.J.) Press 12:28 p.m. EDT August 23, 2016 Two U.S. senators are raising concerns about massive price increases on a drug used under emergency conditions for food allergy reactions to see if they are justified. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has written the manufacturer, Mylan, asking for the reasons behind the price boosts for EpiPen, an epinephine auto-injector used to treat allergy reactions that has seen its price rise from $57 in 2007 to about $500 today. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., wants the Federal Trade Commission to take a look. "I am concerned that the substantial ...

A massive spike in insulin prices is causing a health crisis for millions of diabetes patients who depend on the lifesaving drug, doctors say.Now, after years of rapid increases having nothing to do with available supply and not matched elsewhere in the world, those in the U.S. insulin supply chain are blaming one another.

Taxpayers on the Hook as Obamacare Exchanges Near the Edge of Collapse [Full Thread]

The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses. Even the liberal Capitol Hill newspaper is warning of a possible “Obamacare meltdown” this fall. Three states – Alaska, Alabama, and Wyoming – are already down to just a single insurance company, as are large parts of several other states, totaling at least 664 counties. UnitedHealth is pulling out completely, Humana is pulling out of 88 percent of counties it was in, and ...

But a U.S. government source told CBS News that the government would allow more research into marijuana, senior investigative producer Pat Milton reported. A nurse practitioner and two former state governors filed petitions asking federal agencies to have marijuana reclassified as a drug with acceptable medical uses, CBS New reported. Marijuana has long been classified as a “Schedule 1” drug with “no currently accepted medical use and high potential for abuse,” which ...

Former Federal Judge Nancy Gertner was appointed to the federal bench by Bill Clinton in 1994. She presided over trials for 17 years. And Sunday, she stood before a crowd at The Aspen Ideas Festival to denounce most punishments that she imposed. Among 500 sanctions that she handed down, “80 percent I believe were unfair and disproportionate,” she said. “I left the bench in 2011 to join the Harvard faculty to write about those stories––to write about how it came to pass that I was obliged to sentence people to terms that, frankly, made no sense under any philosophy.” She went on to savage the War on Drugs at greater length. “This is a war that ...

A Kenyan court on Thursday upheld the use of anal examinations to determine a suspect's sexual orientation, dismissing the argument that the procedure amounts to torture and degrading treatment. There was no violation of rights or the law, Mombasa High Court Judge Mathew Emukule said. "I find no violation of human dignity, right to privacy and right to freedom of the petitioners," he said. Two men had sought a court ruling to stop enforced anal examinations and HIV tests of men accused of being gay after they were subjected to the procedures. The two were arrested in a bar near Ukunda along Kenya's Indian Ocean coast in February 2015 on suspicion of engaging in gay ...

A 15-year-old Canadian boy suffering from severe effects of insulin-dependent diabetes died because his religious parents refused to seek proper medical care, the CBC reports. Emil and Rodica Radita are on trial for first-degree murder after their son, Alex, died in 2013 from what prosecutors say were the effects of his parents’ refusal to seek medical care and rely on prayer and home treatment instead. Alex was diagnosed with diabetes as a 3 year old. The condition can be controlled by monitoring blood glucose levels and giving insulin. But his parents believed that doctors caused the condition by treating him for it and left his diabetes untreated. The result was that by ...

The chickenpox virus never leaves the body and it can come back as the painful rash of Shingles. If you’ve had chickenpox, you can get Shingles at any time. It doesn’t matter how healthy you feel. Shingles can strike when you least expect it and can cause a blistering rash that may bring deep, penetrating pain. The Shingles rash can last up to 30 days, and for most the pain lessens as the rash heals. But some people who develop Shingles experience long-term nerve pain that can last for months, even years. As you get older, there’s a greater chance Shingles can happen to you. It’s a simple fact that your immune system can weaken with age. And as a result, your chances ...

How low can Obamacare go? Fewer than 1 in 10 Americans lacked health insurance in 2015, the first time ever in the nation's history that the uninsured rate has fallen so low, and a clear sign of Obamacare's impact. The U.S. uninsurance rate fell to 9.1 percent last year, according to data released Tuesday by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It was the first time the percentage of people without some form of health coverage has gone into single digits, and a 2.4 percentage point drop from 2014. The number of people uninsured in 2015 was 28.6 million, which was 7.4 million fewer than 2014, according to the CDC. Since 2011, when the uninsured rate ...

A noted Princeton University professor has attacked the very notion of transgenderism, saying that the belief “that a woman can be trapped inside a man’s body” is ludicrous and superstitious, with no basis in medical fact. Robert P. George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton, sent out a tweet late Sunday evening questioning the science behind the transgender movement, in reaction to the Obama administration’s threatening letter to educators mandating accommodation of gender-confused teenagers. There are few superstitious beliefs as absurd as the idea that a woman can be trapped in a man’s body & vv. But in the Age of Feeling . . . — ...
