Is Marijuana Legalization a Huge Win for Civilization? – Jason Silva

Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 12.58.18 PM

Jason Silva, host of National Geographic Channel’s Brain Games, calls marijuana legalization a huge win for civilization. Beyond cannabis’ therapeutical uses, Silva offers an argument that being able to choose to use cannabis represents a step toward cognitive freedom. The decision to legalize will also disassociate the drug with criminality and boost its association with an immersive altering of consciousness.

How trees helped my 70 year old grandfather! (via r/trees)

From r/trees

My grandfather has had multiple back surgeries and constant, sometimes severe, back pain due to spinal injuries. He is on a very high dosage of pain pills and often complains about how he can’t sleep with them and if he doesn’t take them, his back hurts him so much at times that he can hardly walk.

It started when he and I were sitting in their living room casually watching TV Tuesday morning and he mentioned not having been able to sleep for the past few days and that his back was still hurting quite a bit. I told him I thought trees  [cannabis] would help, and he asked if I knew anywhere to get some, how much it costs, etc. I quickly replied with, “don’t worry about that, I have some in my car,” and rushed out to get it. Then, I rolled him a joint, we smoked it together on their back porch, and went back in.

I went to get ready to go to work and ten minutes later he was out cold in a childlike slumber. I came back later that day and he was the happiest I’ve seen him in so long! Said he slept well throughout the day and that most of the pain went away. Now I’m about to go pick him up an eighth! I thought you all would appreciate another account of how good trees can be!

Joanne Crowther’s Story: Beating lymphoma with Cannabis Oil

Published on Mar 20, 2015

This is Joanne Crowther’s Story on how she beat Large B-cell lymphoma with Cannabis Oil. In the summer of 2009 Joanne was diagnosed with large B-cell lymphoma. The lymphoma was eliminated with chemotherapy in February 2010. The treatment caused significant nausea, vomiting, febrile neutropenia (fever resulting from abnormally low white blood cell count), and pneumonia requiring hospitalization.

In March 2010, a brain MRI revealed several cancerous lesions. These were resolved by April 2010 with whole brain radiation, as indicated by a post-treatment MRI. For a year-and-a-half, Joanne was doing very well, even participating in a half-marathon. However, in November 2011, a mass developed in her left thigh. Doctors removed the 3.2 x 2.5cm mass, and determined it was consistent with diffuse large B-cell inter-vascular lymphoma.

The removal of this mass did not eliminate the lymphoma. In early January 2012, Joanne began receiving medications to treat complications of the cancer. Furthermore, another head CT scan revealed a 6mm cancer lesion in the left superior pons. The test also confirmed resolution of the previous lesions in the right thalamus and basal ganglia. Shortly after the 3.2 x 2.5cm mass excision, Joanne noticed regrowth of some mass in the same area. She received five shots of radiation in January for the new growth.

More scans in February 2012 revealed new adrenal cancerous nodules. Joanne began taking the chemotherapy drugs cisplatin and cytabarine to combat the cancers. She was then hospitalized between April 23rd, 2012 and May 3rd, 2012 due to acute renal failure and hepatitis, which had been induced by cisplatin and cytabarine respectively. The complications permanently ended Joanne’s chemotherapy regiment, with chemotherapy stopping in late April.

Joanne was then diagnosed with relapsed intravascular diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and leptomeningeal disease.Without the strength to endure more chemotherapy or radiation, doctors could do nothing more, and Joanne was forced to try an alternative treatment.

In early May, she began taking cannabis oil. She started off with small rice-grain sized doses, but after a week felt no effects. She then upped her dosage to a gram of oil a day, and within two weeks noticed beneficial effects – in general, feeling better and having more appetite. On July 30th, 2012, Joanne had a follow-up examination. The documentation resulting from the examination is to the right. It describes how Joanne is doing much better since being off chemotherapy, and that the left thigh mass “actually regressed spontaneously.”

Two months later in Another exam from September 24th, 2012 it states Joanne is now in remission. The report also notes thatshe had been taking regular hemp oil supplements (referring to cannabis oil, not hemp seed oil)

Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana

The War on Medical Marijuana is OVERcropped-090317_77398720a.jpg

Under a provision in the spending bill passed by Congress over the weekend, states where medical marijuana is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.

LA Times

Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.

The bill’s passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so. Continue reading
