News From NORML
Is it not amazing how scientific research continues to show us all, almost at a weekly pace, something new and potentially therapeutic about the cannabis plant? If a medical or biomedical explorer emerged from the jungle today with a plant that has numerous therapeutic benefits, was non-toxic, is an excellent source of fiber, fuel and fabric, and could possibly help medical patients worldwide with cancer, that person and plant would be cheered around the world.
Sadly, and with high irony, that plant does exist in our lives, it is called cannabis and possessing it in most of America will be met by fierce governmental opposition and intervention--not reward or recognition. However, it appears that science (and rational thinking) may just win the day here.
"Cannabinoids possess anticancer activity [and may] possibly represent a new class of anti-cancer drugs that retard cancer growth, inhibit angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels) and the metastatic spreading of cancer cells." So concludes a comprehensive review published in the October 2005 issue of the scientific journal Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry.
Not familiar with the emerging body of research touting cannabis' ability to stave the spread of certain types of cancers? You're not alone. For over 30 years, US politicians and bureaucrats have systematically turned a blind eye to scientific research indicating that marijuana may play a role in cancer prevention. Fortunately, scientists overseas have generously picked up where US researchers so abruptly left off, publishing dozens of studies on cannabinoidsą anti-cancer properties in the past few years.
NORML highlights this research in a new report, "Cannabinoids As Cancer Hope," by NORML Senior Policy Analyst Paul Armentano. You may read the full report and citations > here

OPED: Spice of Life - Cannabis
Sun, 01 Jan 2006. Almost a forbidden subject these days, but the stuff has such a long history that I feel justified in touching on the subject.
The argument nowadays is whether it is a medicine or a harmful addictive drug, and if you go back into historical record you'll find there has always been this dual role, this struggle between good and evil. Click > here < for more.

The individual analyses of the economists and drug policy experts, signed by five Nobel Prize winners in economics, expose the collateral damage of the drug war and offer suggestions on how the policies can "and should" change. "Academics and economists have great insight into this issue and for so long, they've been ignored,"ť said John Collins, the International Drug Policy Project Coordinator at the London School of Economics, which produced the report. "Evidenced-based data about the war on drugs has been lacking for too long. It's time that something changes."ť
Collins noted that the report, titled "Ending the Drug Wars,"ť is nowhere near a simple fix. "There is no single way to solve this issue,"ť he said. "It's an extraordinarily complex issue. We've tried to fix it with a singular approach 'the drug war' and that hasn't worked."ť The LSE's report joins a chorus of voices < www.drugpolicy.org/news/2014/05/groundbreaking-national-academy-sciences-report-us-needs-significantly-reduce-prison-po > speaking out against the war on drugs in recent years. "We're not saying, 'In 30 years, this is what our drug policy landscape should look like,'ť Collins said. "We're saying, 'This isn't working. We need to start moving in a different direction."ť >> www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/05/economists-slam-the-war-on-drugs-in-a-new-lse-report.html "

Study Finds Legalization of Medical Marijuana Not Linked to Increased Use in Teens - Researchers found that a rise in use of marijuana among US teens over the past 20 years is not linked to the legalization of medical marijuana in several states. Federal officials have argued that recent increases in use of marijuana among teens might be a result of better access to the drug in states where it is legal. However, a new study found that there is no evidence that legalization of marijuana for medical purposes increases teen drug use. Researchers compared surveys of marijuana use by teens conducted annually by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). > Read more >> www.cannabispharmacyjournal.com/2014/07/29/study-finds-legalization-of-medical-marijuana-not-linked-to-increased-use-in-teens/ "
