The US government may be starting to officially recognize medicinal benefits of marijuana, as a government-funded research group has released a report claiming that weed can kill cancer cells. The Daily Caller reported the National Institute on Drug Abuse has issued a report that recognizes potential medical benefits of marijuana, something the US government has rejected in its classification of pot as a Schedule I drug – along with heroin, LSD and ecstasy.

“Recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others,” the NIDA report said. “Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumours. Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.”

Well, I am happy to say that I was wrong and that Korben was right, because it really is able to kill some cancer cells. Fair play and again I am very happy to be wrong here.

My apologies Korben.

Didge you are irritating beyond belief sometimes but this is why I like you: you're more real and honest than most on here.


Anyway, concerning the OP, the government will never allow marijuana to be used - they make too much money out of chemo and the strain of marijuan they use will be so tampered with it wont be weed anymore but something else entirely.

Thanks Eddie,You know I always state clearly if I am wrong and am honest to admit like I was here.


I think the Governement cannot ignore its usage, as what is it going to cost the NHS compared to chemo? Cehmo will cost far more due to the countless side aeffects alone. Again many more tests will need to be done before it can approved, which sadly does take a few years. The fact is though this will be way cheaper than chemo, but again it is only affective on some cancers, sadly, with have not found the Holy Grail of a cure to all cancers.
Still positive news this and again I see marijuana will be decriminalising within the next decaade and on some other drugs, as the war on drugs has never worked. The Prohibition era should have been enough evidence to show the war on drugs will not work.

Any way, is very very late, so am off to bed.

I know one old rastafarian - known him years - he got diagnosed with Cancer (I'm not sure which) but he told me he was gonna smoke pure weed until he needed hospitalisation

That was five years ago.

Last I heard he was still alive and still smoking da weed

As i always say 1oz of prevention is better than 13 weeks of kemo Smile

And as i have said till i am blue in the face, the view you get from the media is biased towards 1% of smokers who are raving Neds
who drink and take Es and coke and "like cant speakl ike  proper English like because they are all like  "buzzing " "chung " like  (translation http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine /4074004.stm  ) "

I have smoked 30 years plus i am 53 this year,i look in early 40s i have and have had no major health problems other than a cold

it cured my crippling migraines after i started smoking

i am not saying its right for every one drugs just like alcohol effect people differently and more proper research needs done
its none addictive (seriously )
its none toxic
Nobody has died from a overdose (cant be done period)
some study s even suggest it can have a beneficial effect on drivers causing less accidents rather than more and less fatal ones at that (that`s open to debate )

And remember we a talking about a drug that has been used for thousands of years a drug that you could grow your self
ask your self why would that be made illegal


people get drunk on alcohol by the millions every day
yet to much of it will ether kill you or Seriously damage your organs it makes you take more risks ,it is the main cause of domestic violence ,its a poison for Christ sake and it Legal  


Bloody madness really

You're right KD but the street stuff isn't a,ways good

It's the tobacco you mix with it that is addictive and causes the Cancer

Not sure about youths smoking skunk either - I think that stuff is way too strong

they are two types resin and bush

resin can be mixed with anything and is to increase bulk

bush not so much ,they are urban myths of powdered glass or sugar sprinkled over the buds to add weight
but i have never seen it

And people who claim its far stronger than it used to be are only partly correct because that`s not "strictly" true IMO
unfortunately recent events means that i am unable to contribute to a discussion close to my heart and one that i have a great deal of relevant personal experience and insight to in anything more than vague terms and examples
A topic many of you have only heard media reports concerning and would perhaps benefit from a more first person view

Mindblowing Microscopic Footage of Cancer Cells Being Eliminated by Cannabis Oil

Did you know that studies showed the effectiveness of cannabis at killing cancer cells as long ago as 1974?

In 1974, a study from The Washington Post said that THC effectively:

   “slowed the growth of lung cancers, breast cancers and a virus-induced leukemia in laboratory mice, and prolonged their lives by as much as 36%.”

The information was suppressed and people were incarcerated for up to decades for using or selling the harmless, absolutely miraculous medicine from 1974 to 1998 (and further on, as you know). In 1998, another study came out from Madrid’s Complutense University that indicated THC can cause cancer cells to die, and unlike chemotherapy the THC kills nothing but the cancer cells, leaving the brain of course completely unharmed

Yes I have read that ingredients can cause cancer cells to expire rather than to grow.

chemo may be well trusted but its unpleasant and has many side affects
fatigue
mouth sores
nerve damage
neutropenia and infections
diarrhea
constipation
hair loss
it can damage fast-growing healthy cells.
Chemotherapy can also damage the cells that line mucous membranes throughout the body, including those inside the mouth, throat and stomach
Each person with cancer reacts differently to chemotherapy

so your right not to let it near you nether would I

they are no side affect from cannabis cheers
