34 Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer

34 Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer

WIKI-Cannabis5

There’s still a lot of confusion across the nation about whether or not marijuana is effective for cancer patients. Odds are you’ve heard something about it but weren’t sure whether the information was reliable or definitive. So, in order to help clear things up, here is a list of 34 studies showing that marijuana cures cancer, categorized by the type of cancers being cured in each study. As you sort through the articles, note that the consistent theme between them is that cannabis shrinks tumors and selectively targets cancer cells. As bills and voter initiatives to legalize medical marijuana spread from state to state, remember that we’re not just talking about mitigating the side effects of chemo (though this is another viable use), we’re talking about curing the cancer itself as well as preventing its spread. I’ve taken the liberty of only including articles from credible scientific journals, removing any biased or otherwise improperly cited studies. Enjoy!

Understanding Prohibition

In its history, America has experienced two major periods of drug prohibition. This first was the Federal alcohol prohibition from 1920-1933. The second is the current war on drugs, which began in 1971.

According to Prof. Angela Dills, during these periods of prohibition in America, both homicide rates and police enforcement costs increased. This makes sense, as prohibitions never actually eliminate use. Rather, prohibitions convert peaceful and legal markets into black markets. In black markets, when disputes arise over sales territory, product quality, or money, the government legal system is not available. This forces drug dealers to resolve disputes on their own, which often leads to violence.

The violence of black markets, along with the enforcement of drug policy, attracts the attention of law enforcement. Law enforcement is costly, and the time spent enforcing drug laws could have been spent preventing other crimes like murder, theft, and rape. Drug prohibition not only generates more violence and increases the cost of law enforcement; it also distracts law enforcement and puts citizens at greater risk of crime.

The South Is Still Doing It Again

wpid-facebook_719960198

I pointed out that the south is beginning to attempt various forms of legalization of weed. Looks like others are joining in.

 

Bill to Legalize and Regulate Marijuana Introduced in Alabama

Many traditionally write off the Southern United States as an area dead to cannabis law reform, but one Representative is behind a new effort that can change all of that.

This week, Rep. Patricia Todd (D-Birmingham) has introduced House Bill 550, the Alabama Cannabis and Hemp Reform Act of 2013. This measure would legalize the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana and the cultivation of up to 12 mature marijuana plants by those over the age of 21. It would also authorize the Department of Revenue to establish marijuana retail outlets. You can read the full text of the measure here.

Governor will let Kentucky hemp bill become law

By BEN FINLEY

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Kentucky law will now allow industrial hemp farming – but only if the federal government ever lifts restrictions on the plant.

Gov. Steve Beshear on Friday said he will let the bill become law without his signature. The governor said he won’t actually sign the legislation out of concerns, shared by some in law enforcement, that marijuana growers could camouflage their illegal crops with hemp plants.

Hemp is similar to marijuana but has a negligible amount of THC, the psychoactive compound that gives marijuana users a high. Hemp can be used to make products including the cosmetics and nutritional supplements sold at stores such as Whole Foods Market. Proponents of hemp farming say it could be a cash crop for U.S. farmers.

I swear: if they ever legalize hemp in TN, I am becoming a full-time farmer.

B’Man’s Hypocrite Watch: Steve Katz

Katz represents the Hudson Valley in New York and voted against legalizing medical marijuana

Katz represents the Hudson Valley in New York and voted against legalizing medical marijuana

 

Maybe he’s mellowed out.

According to The New York Post, Steve Katz, a Republican state assemblyman from Yorktown, New York was arrested on pot possession yesterday despite the fact that last year he voted against legalizing medical marijuana.

A former veterinarian, Katz was pulled over Thursday morning for driving fifteen miles over the speed limit near Coeymans, New York.

The state trooper who stopped Katz noticed the smell of marijuana.

According to the New York state police, Katz was not disruptive.

Spokeswoman Darcy Wells told the media that Katz ‘was cooperative and handed the trooper a bag of marijuana.’

The assemblyman was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana and is due in court later this month.

What a POS. Instead of voting for the stuff that heals, he votes against it and then uses it himself. Being a hypocrite does not surprise me though: He’s a Jew.Just look at all the Jews in congress that are trying to take away guns from citizens while surrounded by armed thugs or actually own guns themselves (or get their husbands to buy them) or try to enact laws to take away citizens’ guns and right to purchase, while exempting government officials.

Jesus was correct when he called them all out for the liars and hypocrites they are.

Hundreds of pot smokers light up Washington in fanfare midnight countdown as state legalizes marijuana

article-2243954-16609057000005DC-209_634x397

With not an arresting officer in sight crowds of smiling people lit joints under Seattle’s Space Needle on early Thursday morning celebrating marijuana now legal under Washington state law.

Hundreds gathered at Seattle Center for a New Year’s Eve-style countdown to 12am, when the legalization measure passed by voters last month took effect. When the clock struck, they cheered and sparked up in unison.

The South’s Gonna Do It Again

 

Maybe us dumb ole southern rednecks are smarter than you think we are. Mississippi, long ago, decriminalized mara-gee-wana. Many people do not know this. I even pointed out what a tremendous draw it would be for Mississippi tourism, making the state the Number One Tourist destination in America. I also pointed out a Hero in Mississippi who wanted to legalize medical marijuana in Mississippi… State Senator Deborah Dawkins. Which is fitting because Ole Miss actually grows what little marijuana is authorized by the Federal Government for years.

I wrote:

It appears that one redneck Mississippi woman, State Senator Deborah Dawkins, understands what ole Jefferson meant, and wants medical marijuana legalized in Mississippi. She is a hero, since there aren’t many, if any (in Mississippi), ready to address the obvious. Any sane person knows. Any person that has a relative who hurts knows. The only people that don’t know are the ignorant or the ones that profit from its illegality. There are no more in-betweens.

Who Profits From Prohibition?

I recently shared with you just who is truly against the legalization  initiatives. They pour money in to fight it… and guess what? They are the very ones that PROFIT the most from its continued illegality. Imagine that.

1.) Police Unions: Police departments across the country have become dependent on federal drug war grants to finance their budget. In March, we published a story revealing that a police union lobbyist in California coordinated the effort to defeat Prop 19, a ballot measure in 2010 to legalize marijuana, while helping his police department clients collect tens of millions in federal marijuana-eradication grants. And it’s not just in California. Federal lobbying disclosures show that other police union lobbyists have pushed for stiffer penalties for marijuana-related crimes nationwide.

2.) Private Prisons Corporations: Private prison corporations make millions by incarcerating people who have been imprisoned for drug crimes, including marijuana. As Republic Report’s Matt Stoller noted last year, Corrections Corporation of America, one of the largest for-profit prison companies, revealed in a regulatory filing that continuing the drug war is part in parcel to their business strategy. Prison companies have spent millions bankrolling pro-drug war politicians and have used secretive front groups, like the American Legislative Exchange Council, to pass harsh sentencing requirements for drug crimes.

3.) Alcohol and Beer Companies: Fearing competition for the dollars Americans spend on leisure, alcohol and tobacco interests have lobbied to keep marijuana out of reach. For instance, the California Beer & Beverage Distributors contributed campaign contributions to a committee set up to prevent marijuana from being legalized and taxed.

4.) Pharmaceutical Corporations: Like the sin industries listed above, pharmaceutical interests would like to keep marijuana illegal so American don’t have the option of cheap medical alternatives to their products. Howard Wooldridge, a retired police officer who now lobbies the government to relax marijuana prohibition laws, told Republic Report that next to police unions, the “second biggest opponent on Capitol Hill is big PhRMA” because marijuana can replace “everything from Advil to Vicodin and other expensive pills.”

5.) Prison Guard Unions: Prison guard unions have a vested interest in keeping people behind bars just like for-profit prison companies. In 2008, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association spent a whopping $1 million to defeat a measure that would have “reduced sentences and parole times for nonviolent drug offenders while emphasizing drug treatment over prison.”

I have pointed you to the many law enforcement officials that recognize that the system is rigged AND the Liar-In-Chief that says one thing campaigning, but does another when elected.

 

But that is nothing new, is it?

 

A States’ Rights Issue

 

The Federal Government will force its brutish self over the state’s rights that places like Washington showed recently.

 

Did you hear the arguments against made in the video, which rely on issues that have nothing to do with the ballot initiatives (no one is suggesting that children will be allowed to partake)? That “sleight-of-hand”, in and of itself, is telling. As a Doctor told me a few years ago, kids have easy access now and suggested that if one wanted to find marijuana for one’s own healing, just ask a teenager.

No matter, when states vote and pass this type of legislation, there is an almost immediate relief that locals feel.

King County (Washington) dropping misdemeanor marijuana cases

The King County Prosecutor’s Office says it’ll immediately dismiss all of its misdemeanor marijuana possession cases because of the passage of I-502, legalizing marijuana possession of one ounce or less.

So, this will likely be a Federal Government versus State’s Rights showdown. GOOD! About time!

And this doesn’t address all the cities that are passing their own laws of decriminalization (as the above video points out), which includes 90+ in Illinois alone.

 

Who benefits from legalization?

 

My God! Can you imagine the lives saved, the money saved, the lives unharmed by the Police State, the taxes earned, etc. if they would simply stop feeding their prohibition profiteers? It truly is a no-brainer when one considers all the harm created by prohibition.

I have covered this subject for years now and if you are new to the blog, you might want to take some time reading thru the many posts I have published regarding it. I promise you will learn something.

 

Other Southern States Initiatives

 

Arkansas voted on legalizing the Devil Weed for medical purposes and barely lost. In 2007, Eureka Springs took it to the brink of legalization:

In November 2007, Eureka Springs voters passed an ordinance directing police and prosecutors to make possession of less than an ounce of marijuana a low law-enforcement priority. Under Arkansas law, such possession is a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

In Tennessee this past summer, medical marijuana got a legislative hearing (I pointed this out here), but failed, in spite of some of the most stringently atrocious and antiquated laws against its use in the nation:

Did you know that in Tennessee possession of any amount of marijuana — even as little as a single gram — can land you in prison for up to a year, with a mandatory fine of between $250 and $2,500? Or that there were over 23,000 marijuana-related arrests in Tennessee in 2007, and over 82% of these arrests were for simple possession of small amounts of marijuana? That’s almost 20,000 families impacted by arrest, prosecution, fines, and related effects such as denial of employment or public benefits.

You can read more about the negative consequences of Tennessee’s marijuana laws in this excellent profile by Jon Gettman, Ph.D.

This is particularly offensive when one understands All The Reasons Pot Is Good For You  (which include):

  • Preventing blindness from glaucoma
  • Better for your lungs than tobacco
  • Controlling epileptic seizures
  • Stops CANCER from spreading
  • Decreasing anxiety
  • Slows the progression of Alzheimer’s
  • Eases the pain of Multiple Sclerosis
  • Lessens side-effects from treating hepatitis C
  • Treats inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Relieves arthritis discomfort

Even the National Cancer Institute recognizes its huge benefits for treating the symptoms of cancer.

 

The southern cake-taker

 

Could Alabama be next?

Will we hear all the other Mississippi Kids start saying they are Alabami-bound?

Arthur and I Both Were Right

Arthur Silber called it:

Yeah, I wuz.

I find that … not very interesting, personally. As the returns were coming in, I kept thinking: “Oh, please let Romney win! Puuuhleeeez!” Not, you understand, that I wanted the motherfucker to become president. I don’t want any motherfucker to become president. (See the discussion here, particularly in the second half of the essay, about how profoundly and severely damaged someone has to be to want that kind of power.)

But if Romney had won, that would have meant that I missed something in my analysis. Or didn’t calibrate the different elements involved the right way. Now that would have been interesting to me. I would want to figure out how and why I got it wrong. But … I didn’t. Oh, well. Maybe I’ll make lots of mistakes tomorrow!

Anyway.

Aw, fuck. Honestly, I can’t think of anything else to say at this particular moment. I mean, Jesus H. Fucking Christ. Another four years of this shit?!?!?!?!?!

And so did I.

I called it already over a year ago (tongue in cheek, but there is SOME truth to the post).

But now, after hearing Bro Nat explain that the Jews favor Obama 65% to 24% over Romney, who could question that Obama has it in the bag?

Not that my call was any miracle… hell, the Jews wanted him in, so…

There are some dreamers out there that believe this win for Obama is a mandate to make change. That he should take this opportunity to finally start being a human being and do a few things, you know, humanely. Global Research says that he now can change from his last four years of systematically sucking the balls of the rich to helping the poor (what a dreamer they are). They suggest that Obama should remember how Netanyahu worked against him to get Romney elected and somehow man up and get some revenge… or something.

Seriously now.

I am considering moving to Washington or Colorado, where at least a few sane people live:

Not that it was an easy win for the sane ones. There was some Big Money fighting to stop the initiative:

1.) Police Unions: Police departments across the country have become dependent on federal drug war grants to finance their budget. In March, we published a story revealing that a police union lobbyist in California coordinated the effort to defeat Prop 19, a ballot measure in 2010 to legalize marijuana, while helping his police department clients collect tens of millions in federal marijuana-eradication grants. And it’s not just in California. Federal lobbying disclosures show that other police union lobbyists have pushed for stiffer penalties for marijuana-related crimes nationwide.

2.) Private Prisons Corporations: Private prison corporations make millions by incarcerating people who have been imprisoned for drug crimes, including marijuana. As Republic Report’s Matt Stoller noted last year, Corrections Corporation of America, one of the largest for-profit prison companies, revealed in a regulatory filing that continuing the drug war is part in parcel to their business strategy. Prison companies have spent millions bankrolling pro-drug war politicians and have used secretive front groups, like the American Legislative Exchange Council, to pass harsh sentencing requirements for drug crimes.

3.) Alcohol and Beer Companies: Fearing competition for the dollars Americans spend on leisure, alcohol and tobacco interests have lobbied to keep marijuana out of reach. For instance, the California Beer & Beverage Distributors contributed campaign contributions to a committee set up to prevent marijuana from being legalized and taxed.

4.) Pharmaceutical Corporations: Like the sin industries listed above, pharmaceutical interests would like to keep marijuana illegal so American don’t have the option of cheap medical alternatives to their products. Howard Wooldridge, a retired police officer who now lobbies the government to relax marijuana prohibition laws, told Republic Report that next to police unions, the “second biggest opponent on Capitol Hill is big PhRMA” because marijuana can replace “everything from Advil to Vicodin and other expensive pills.”

5.) Prison Guard Unions: Prison guard unions have a vested interest in keeping people behind bars just like for-profit prison companies. In 2008, the California Correctional Peace Officers Association spent a whopping $1 million to defeat a measure that would have “reduced sentences and parole times for nonviolent drug offenders while emphasizing drug treatment over prison.”

Cops and prisons folks will have to lay-off workers criminals with badges. The health sick care industry now has to fight REAL medicine. And the poisonous, life-depleting alcohol industry has a safe alternative.

Here is how the law will work in Washington:

This law legalizes the possession of marijuana for adults age 21 and older. The only marijuana that would be legal to sell in this state would be grown by specially-licensed Washington farmers and sold in standalone, marijuana-only stores operated by private Washington businesses licensed and regulated by the state. There would be a 25% sales tax, with 40% of the new revenues going to the state general fund and local budgets, and the remainder dedicated to substance-abuse prevention, research, education and health care. Advertising would be restricted. A new marijuana DUI standard that operates like the alcohol DUI standard would be established.

Not exactly the ideal law for someone like me who knows how to garden and would prefer to grow their own. But it is a start.

I will make another prognostic, crystal ball, bump on the head call:

The Feds will immediately start the fight against the people, for we know that they are not about to give up the Big Money without a fight.

Yeah, a different Christ, but I would be willing to bet that the real One would say about the same thing. As a matter of fact, He was anointed in some.

I have written about this subject here before (although now I realize that the Nazis did not use fluoride), but that is besides the point. You can also read more about it in my feature, Jack Herer’s “The Emperor Wears No Clothes: Chapter 10“.

Today’s The Big Day, But I’m Not Holding My Breath

Once again, medical-marijuana advocates are taking to the courts to eliminate the biggest barrier to legal use—the federal law that classifies marijuana as a dangerous drug with no valid medical use.

On Oct. 16, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, the federal appeals court that usually handles cases involving government regulations, will hear oral arguments on Americans for Safe Access v. DEA. It will be the first time in almost 20 years that federal courts have considered the science of medical marijuana, says ASA spokesperson Kris Hermes.
