Recently I have read some articles based on Medical Marijuana and some of the positive effects which could be gained by taking it internally. I'm not talking about smoking it. But I'm talking about Topical creams. The thing that bothers me about the whole situation is there was no scientific study done back when it was made illegal not to mention that but most other more heavy illegal drugs are used in many of our pain killers right now which are much more serious and dangerous and addictive. Does heroine or opium which is used as a by-products in painkillers make them safer then the actual drugs which are illegal. I would imagine the answer to that would be no because you still can get addicted to them and you can overdose and kill yourself with painkillers too. So if illegal drugs with even more serious side effects of Marijuana is banned then why not accept marijuana as a more excepted treatment to health problems. It makes me wonder if maybe the effects of marijuana are actually too good to actually pass as a drug. Like the cannabinoid found in marijuana can actually block cell growth or stop the growth of blood vessels which turn into tumors so why can't this be used to help people with untreatable cancers like brain cancer or tumors which can't be treated. Another thing I found very interesting when I was looking up information about during the 1970's when it was made illegal besides the government believing that it had no medical value at that time they still distributed it to patients under the Compassionate Use Investigational New Drug (IND) program between 1978 and 1992. They found over the past 20 years that cannabinoids have an effect in immunity which is the protection against infectious diseases. Some other studies on laboratory animal's which were done showed even better results including the reduction and removal of tumors and also the fact that cannabinoids can not only stop cancer from growing and kill cancer cells but also help protect normal cells. Another study done with mice showed that cannabinoids can protect the colon from inflammation and have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer as well as used in the treatment of people who have colon cancer. There was another study done on liver cancer which showed that cannabinoids damaged or killed cancer cells and showed it had anti-tumor effects. Of course just hearing it from me might not be enough so why not read it for yourself from the government website this way you know I am not just making it up. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/patient/Page2#Section_5 Of course all of this proof and yet there is still legal problems with the use of marijuana makes me wonder if maybe they would rather not cure people at all. How much positive results do you need to get something approved for use? Sounds to me like it should have been used for full medical treatment months ago. This is the kind of stuff which makes me angry. Sure just like alcohol marijuana can be used and abused by people but if it can be used to save people then we should be using it because people will always find a way to abuse a good thing anyway. But if we can save lives especially those of children. Just recently there has been cancer patients who have been going viral do we really want to not use methods which can cure these children simply because something is illegal if we know that it could possibly cure different types of cancer? How many people will need to die for things to change? Really makes me wonder.
