Medical marijuana has no health risks: WHO
Post Date: 2017-12-14 11:10:35 by Deckard

The World Health Organization (WHO) has officially given the tick of approval to cannabidiol, a relaxing compound in medical marijuana, ruling it is not a dangerous drug. The compound, also known as CBD, can be an effective treatment for cancer, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and in palliative care, with WHO now ruling it does not have any risks of addiction. The ruling means that it should not be a scheduled drug – meaning that it is not drug that has a high potential for abuse or is illegal to manufacture or distribute. WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence announced: “Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic value for seizures ...

U.S. States Tried Decriminalizing Pot Before. Here's Why It Didn't Work
Post Date: 2017-12-08 02:51:44 by Gatlin

In the past five years, eight states and Washington, D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana for adults. Today, 68 million people live in areas where marijuana is treated like alcohol or tobacco. The drug is sold in stores, millions of tax dollars are being raised from its sale, and an increasing number of businesspeople are profiting in this lucrative new industry. Long seen as either a hippie accessory or a dangerous gateway drug, legal marijuana is booming. Pot is so popular that, in 2015, its sales surpassed Girl Scout cookies, Oreos, and Dasani bottled water. By 2026, analysts predict it will match, and eventually outpace, America’s $50 billion wedding industry. How did this ...

DEA Claims Synthetic THC Made by a Group of Criminals is Safer Than Actual Weed. Seriously
Post Date: 2017-12-02 14:03:47 by Deckard
1 Comments
As the Free Thought Project previously reported, one of the manufacturers of a fentanyl drug was exposed for lobbying against marijuana, while simultaneously bribing doctors to push their dangerous opioids. Now, after the federal government granted Insys permission to make a synthetic version of cannabis, they are claiming that it’s safer and more medically valuable than actual weed. Seriously. The DEA recently announced through the federal register that the synthetic THC made by Insys, sold under the brand name Syndros, will be listed as a schedule II drug, meaning it can now be prescribed by doctors. In the meantime, actual THC—containing the exact same properties, but able ...

VA study shows parasite from Vietnam may be killing vets

Veterans returned to the U.S. after fighting in the jungles of Vietnam a half century ago, but hundreds of them may be dying from a silent bullet — a slow-killing parasite living in the men decades after the war, a new study revealed. Liver flukes, parasites that infect a human when raw or undercooked fish is eaten, are being investigated as the cause of a rare bile duct cancer among veterans who served in the Vietnam War. It could take years for symptoms to show up, but when they do, the host is left with tremendous pain and given just a few months to live. The Department of Veterans Affairs this spring commissioned a small pilot study to look into the link between liver flukes and ...

The DEA’s investigation of Forest Tennant tries to criminalize differences of opinion about pain treatment. Forest Tennant, who has been treating and researching pain at his clinic in West Covina, California, since 1975, is well-known as an expert in the field, having published more than 200 articles in medical journals and given more than 130 presentations at professional conferences. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), all of that was an elaborate cover for drug trafficking. Or so you would have to surmise from the affidavit supporting the search warrant that the DEA served on Tennant's offices and home last week, which describes "invalid ...

Mysterious Marijuana-Related Illness Popping Up In Emergency Rooms
Post Date: 2017-11-22 13:42:13 by Gatlin
4 Comments
A mysterious marijuana-related illness is popping up with increasing frequency in hospital emergency rooms, particularly in states where cannabis is now legal. The symptoms are severe abdominal pain and violent vomiting — and most doctors are initially stumped when they encounter patients with the problem. The illness is cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome, which is linked to heavy, long- term use of marijuana, according to experts. For some reason, the nausea and vomiting of CHS can be relieved with hot showers or baths, which can serve as an important hint for physicians trying to diagnose a patient. The condition is especially puzzling considering cannabis’ accepted reputation ...

For 17 years, Chalfonte LeNee Queen suffered periodic episodes of violent retching and abdominal pain that would knock her off her feet for days, sometimes leaving her writhing on the floor in pain. “I’ve screamed out for death,” said Queen, 48, who lives in San Diego. “I’ve cried out for my mom who’s been dead for 20 years, mentally not realizing she can’t come to me.” Queen lost a modeling job after being mistaken for an alcoholic. She racked up tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills, and her nausea interrupted her sex life. Toward the end of her illness, Queen, who stands 5-foot-9, weighed in at a frail 109 pounds. Throughout the nearly ...

FDA, DEA Launch Massive Assault On Kratom – Drug War for Miracle Plant Ramping Up
Post Date: 2017-11-17 07:21:36 by Deckard

By Brandon Turbeville, Natural Blaze To no one’s surprise, the U.S. government, after hysterically declaring a “national emergency” over America’s opioid crisis, is once again setting its sights on Kratom, the non-addictive natural plant that has helped thousands of Americans wean themselves off opioids. In 2015, the DEA announced its plans to place Kratom on the list of Controlled Substances (in the same scheduling level as heroin to be exact) but, amid public outcry, the agency backed off, deferring to FDA “review” and “advice.” Many optimistic  Kratom activists were tempted to rest on their laurels, trusting that the ...

Health Effects: Alcohol vs. Marijuana

Business Insider has an interesting scorecard. Less addictive: marijuana by a wide margin. Harder on the heart (moderate use): likely marijuana, albeit current evidence is inconclusive. Links to different types of cancer: strong ones for alcohol.  Marijuana has none of the links to lung, head, and neck cancers that tobacco cigarettes have. Poses more of a risk while operating a motor vehicle: alcohol. Links with domestic violence: alcohol. Linked more with weight gain: surprise, alcohol (“munchies” notwithstanding). Adversely affects memory: both, in different ways. Linked to increased risk of psychiatric problems: both, in different ways. And as Laurence reminds us from ...

Epileptic Girl Sues Sessions to Legalize Medical Marijuana Nationwide

A 12-year-old girl suffering from epilepsy is suing Attorney General Jeff Sessions in order to legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes on a federal level. A motion by the US government to dismiss her case has been denied. Alexis Bortell, 12, was joined by four other plaintiffs in her lawsuit, filed in US District Court in the Southern District of New York on July 24, according to court documents. Other defendants named in the case are the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Acting Director of the DEA Chuck Rosenberg and the US government. Bortell has suffered from epilepsy since she was a little girl, and treatments in her home state of Texas failed to relieve her suffering. ...

The Republican Establishment Is A Total Disgrace For Blocking Cannabis Medicine For Wounded Veterans
Post Date: 2017-11-10 07:48:59 by Deckard

The Republican establishment recently blocked veterans’ access to medical marijuana, making sure our veterans remain addicted to dangerous, deadly opioids. The Veterans Equal Access amendment was blocked by the Republican-led U.S. House, ensuring that Big Pharma continues to cash in on the biological destruction of returning veterans. The very political party that claims to be pro-military, in other words, has just thrown veterans to the pharma dogs. This, coupled with the routine prescribing of mind-altering psychiatric drugs to veterans after near-instant “PTSD” diagnoses means that our brave men and women in uniform have in many cases been turned into ...

The Great Flu Vaccine Hoax: New Evidence

Apparently, the powers-that-be want everyone to take the seasonal flu vaccine out of loyalty and blind faith. Because actual science reveals the hoax. A new study, published in the PLOS Journal on 10/23, by contributing authors from the Scripps Institute and the University of Pennsylvania, is titled: “A structural explanation for the low effectiveness of the seasonal influenza H3N2 vaccine.” Oops. Low effectiveness? The public has been taught to believe the vaccine is quite effective. Here is a key quote from the study: “It is common to use chicken eggs for culturing clinical isolates and for large-scale production of vaccines. However, influenza virus often mutates to ...

Legalizing marijuana sends a dangerous message to kids

One day during my youthfulness, I was engaging in a joint that I had bought, and suddenly I experienced side effects that weren’t normal. It was obviously laced with something that sent me on a trip that scared me to death. During this event, I asked Jesus to help me and promised to never smoke weed again. He did help me and I never smoked weed again. Now, I’ve had my trials and joys in my life just like everyone else and times where I’ve soared and others that were devastating, but throughout these experiences, I did not turn to marijuana to help or comfort me; I turned to Christ, the One who rescued me. A few weeks back, there was the election where several pot ...

Study: Nearly 70% of online CBD marijuana extracts are mislabeled
Post Date: 2017-11-08 05:49:56 by Gatlin

With 29 states and the District of Columbia having now legalized medical marijuana, many consumers are trying out various types of extracts containing cannabidiol (CBD)—a relatively safe, non-addictive component of marijuana that does not generate a “high” and has shown potential for treating a variety of conditions, including pain, anxiety, and epilepsy. But those buying CBD extracts online may not be getting what they signed up for, according to new research. In a study of 84 CBD products sold by 31 companies online, blind testing found that only about 31 percent of them contained the amount of CBD listed on the label (within +/- 10 percent). And some of the products ...

With online medical marijuana, it’s buyer beware

(Reuters Health) - People who buy medical marijuana online may not necessarily get exactly what they expect when their package arrives in the mail, new research suggests. Online, almost 70 percent of products made from cannabidiol – a marijuana plant extract also called CBD – had higher or lower concentrations of this drug than the label described, researchers report in JAMA. Too little or too much CBD can be unsafe or ineffective. For the study, researchers searched online for medical marijuana products and bought 84 products marketed as containing CBD from 31 different companies. Roughly one in five of the products also contained THC, the chemical in cannabis that makes gives ...

Parents, your fears have been confirmed: Drinking alcohol and smoking pot really may affect your teen’s future. The news should really not be a surprise. There’s been ample research—and even more media coverage—on the effects substance use can have on the teenage brain. New research adds to the connection. Researchers at the University of Connecticut studied 1,165 people over the course of their teenage years into early adulthood. Specifically, they wanted to know how heavy drug and alcohol use might impact key adult milestones like working full time, getting married and completing their education. In general, the subjects who used lots of pot as teens were less ...

Marijuana 'may be worse than cigarettes for cardiovascular health'

Research suggests that marijuana use may raise the risk of death from hypertension by more than threefold. People who use marijuana may be three times more likely to die from high blood pressure than non-users of the drug, a new study finds. The researchers say that their findings indicate that marijuana use is a greater risk factor for poor cardiovascular health than cigarette smoking. Lead study author Barbara A. Yankey, of the School of Public Health at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and her team recently reported their results in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. High blood pressure, or hypertension, arises when the force of blood pushing against the blood vessel ...

A new study has showed that more frequent current marijuana use is associated with a measure of cognitive dysfunction. Weed smokers, beware. Previous studies have already linked smoking up to psychological problems and increased risk of stroke and heart failure. Now, a new study has linked marijuana use with cognitive dysfunction in people with HIV infection who have an alcohol or other drug use disorder. While researchers at Boston University School of Public Health (BUSPH), Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM), and Boston Medical Center (BMC) did not detect effects of lifetime cumulative exposure, the study showed that more frequent current marijuana use was associated with a ...

Marijuana use may lead to 26% increase in the risk of stroke and a 10% increase in the risk of developing heart failure, an Indian-origin researcher has found. “Like all other drugs, whether they’re prescribed or not prescribed, we want to know the effects and side effects of this drug,” said the study’s lead author Aditi Kalla from Einstein Medical Centre in Philadelphia, US. “It’s important for physicians to know these effects so we can better educate patients, such as those who are inquiring about the safety of cannabis or even asking for a prescription for cannabis,” Kalla said. The study drew data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample, which ...

MARIJUANA: WHY DANGEROUSLY POTENT POT IS MAKING PEOPLE LOSE THEIR MINDS AND MEMORIES
Post Date: 2017-11-06 15:05:30 by Gatlin

High-potency pot is causing psychiatric issues, including addiction and memory problems. New strains of the recreational drug have higher levels of the active chemical and not enough of another compound that keeps the drug safe. And as a new study this week documents, the riskiest pot is coming from the black market— which could be an argument for expanding legalization. The new report, published this week by Manchester Metropolitan University in the U.K., tested 50 samples of cannabis in the city of Manchester. The study was conducted by Volteface, a London-based policy think tank seeking reform for marijuana laws to improve safety of the drug by making it legal, and thus limiting ...

New research presented today at APHA's 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo examined the effect of marijuana use and dependence on life achievement in young adults. The study found that young adults dependent on marijuana and alcohol were less likely to achieve adult life goals, defined by the study as educational achievement, full-time employment, marriage and social economic potential. Researchers with UConn Health examined data from the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism, supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Study subjects included 1,165 young adults, whose habits were first assessed at age 12 and then at two-year intervals until they were ...
