Marijuana is a green, brown, or gray mixture of dried, shredded leaves, stems, seeds, and flowers of the hemp plant. Marijuana has a chemical in it called tetrahydrocannabinol, better know as THC. All forms of marijuana are mind-altering (psychoactive). In other words, they change how the brain works. A lot of other chemicals are found in marijuana, too about 400 of them, some of which are carcinogenic.46 Marijuana is addictive with more teens in treatment with a primary diagnosis of marijuana dependence than for all other illicit drugs combined.

Definition of Carcinogen-A substance or agent that causes cancer. Related terms include the adjective carcinogenic and the nouns carcinogenesis and "carcinogenicity

Risks

Impaired judgment and motor coordination

Shortened attention span and distractibility

Anxiety and panic attacks

Increased heart rate

Increased risk of heart attack

Increased risk for schizophrenia

Impaired judgment

Problems with memory and learning

Lowered motivation

Decreased alertness and coordination

Addiction

 

Withdrawal symptoms from stopping drug use (in a chronic user): irritability, sleeplessness, anxiety, impaired appetite, and aggression.

 

A doctors response

Because of the serious physical and psychological effects associated with its use, Despite the fact that it is widely available, and even accepted in some families and communities, marijuana remains A legally restricted restricted harmful drug. It's main ingredient THC or Delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol, a mind altering chemical. Marijauna produced today has a level of THC that is up yo 25 times higherthan the type sold in the 1960s. And depending on how it is cut, it can contain hundreds of other harmful chemicals, many of which are carcinogenic.

 

Biologically, marijuana affects the brain, heart, lungs, -blam!- organs, and depresses the immune system. The effects on the brain include distortion of the senses, confused judgment, and decreased motor skills. Operating machinery and motor vehicles becomes dangerous. Effects on the heart include rapid heart rate and high blood pressure. Respiratory problems include pharyngitis, laryngitis, and bronchitis. Marijuana has been associated with lung, head, and neck cancers. It reduces the T-cells in the immune system that are needed to fight off infections. In pre-teens, marijuana use can retard physical growth and slow down development. High dose marijuana use can cause decreased fertility, breast enlargement in males, and breast milk production. Usually marijauana is inhaled smby smokign a "joint" for it's psychological effects. Within the first few minutes, it produces a sense of heightened well being and relaxation. Now that sounds good. But with continued use, the mental effects include short-term memory loss, shortened attention span, impaired learning, social withdrawal, and decreased motivation. Anxiety attacks, panic reactions, delirium, and hallucinations can occur. So pediatricians are very concerned about the harmful effects of marijuana and they do not support its use or legalization.

Now I would love to see someone try and say that these are all lies, to all you poorly misinformed marijuana smokers, if any of you can actually disprove any of this and.

My neighbor (a young guy of about 25+) phones me one night at about 23h00 - He is out of breath, asks if I can hear the dogs barking. (Nope) Then he says that there are footprints on his roof.  He maintains that someone is walking on his roof! - He sounds paranoid, delusional - but I humor him..

The house is one of the big thatch roofed houses with an incredible slope and that grass is slippery as hell.  Similar to this IMAGE

This guy and his buddies sit around the barbecue fire smoking pot for hours. 

 

It may have medicinal properties who knows - but smoking too much of it aint a good idea.

 

Makes you think of this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7pHDoJrrzA

ROFL... Dude, you must've been watching all those old propaganda videos from the 50's.

That is one of the funniest and stupidest video's I have ever seen done by the US government.

This is awesome! :jptdknpa:

 

But a couple of things...

A. What doesn't cause cancer?

B. The explanation of what happens to the brain in the mousey seems fine enough.

C. Did you put the quotes around joint or was the doctor speaking? Either way, it seems obvious you and he never smoked.

D. "Decreased alertness and coordination" What?? Have you seen those kids on the quad hacky-sac?

This was a great laugh, though. "The effects on the brain include distortion of the senses" :jptdknpa:

"joint" :jptdknpa:

 

I can't say the above is all lies. I can say I was a habitual user for probably seven+ years. I quit cold turkey and had one night of sleeplessness.That's it.

If this D.A.R.E. class you posted wanted to get people off weed instead of showing how benign it is, you should have talked about the dangers your wallet faces when entering a grocery store stoned. THAT will kill you.

Two mysteries surround pot.

1. Who first smoked it?

2. Upon smoking it, who thought it should be illegal?

The Top 42 Medical Studies That Prove Cannabis Can Cure Cancer

The negative stigma attached to marijuana is due to its supposed psychotropic effects, yet again, there is no such scientific evidence. Arguments against the use of marijuana are usually published in Psychiatric journals, which show no scientific evidence that cannabis is harmful to human health. All psychological evaluations from the intake of cannabis are largely based on assumptions, suggestions and observations.

Below is a list of 42 studies showing that marijuana cures cancer, categorized by the type of cancers being cured in each study. This extensive list only includes articles from credible scientific journals. It is important to note that we're not only talking about reducing the side effects of chemotherapy, we're talking about completely curing the cancer itself!

Over 100 Scientific Studies Agree: Cannabis Annihilates Cancer

Considering that up until about 85 years ago, cannabis oil was used around the world to treat a variety of diseases, including cancer, it is not surprising that the phasing out of cannabis to treat illness coincided with the rise of pharmaceutical companies.

Rick Simpson, a medical marijuana activist, is on a crusade to help others heal. He regards cannabis as the most medicinally active plant on the face of the earth, and shared this apparent miracle with others — completely free of charge. He now has thousands of testimonials from those who were healed from ‘incurable’ disease to back up his claims ~ that cannabis annihilates cancer.

For the naysayers out there who are still not convinced about the effectiveness of cannabis for curing cancer, the astounding healing attributes of the plant are well documented by a wealth of peer-reviewed studies.

Traditional medicinal plant backed by modern medicine

Breast cancer

A study in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics explored the relationship between the use of cannabidiol (CBD) and the subsequent down regulation of breast cancer tumor aggressiveness. The researchers concluded that CBD represents the first nontoxic agent to decrease the aggressiveness of metastic breast cancer cells in vivo.

Several additional studies support these findings, including “Pathways mediating the effects of cannabidiol on the reduction of breast cancer cell proliferation, invasion and metastasis” and “Cannabinoids: a new hope for breast cancer therapy?”

Furthermore, the journal PLoS One reports further evidence of how cannabinoids modulate breast cancer tumor growth and metastasis by inhibiting specific receptors.

Colon cancer

As published in Pharmacological Research:

“Studies on epithelial cells have shown that cannabinoids exert antiproliferative, antimetastatic and apoptotic effects as well as reducing cytokine release and promoting wound healing. In vivo, cannabinoids – via direct or indirect activation of CB(1) and/or CB(2) receptors – exert protective effects in well-established models of intestinal inflammation and colon cancer.”

The team concluded that the administration of cannabinoids “may be a promising strategy to counteract intestinal inflammation and colon cancer.”

Moreover, research in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology established that colon cancer cell lines were strongly affected by cannabinoids.

Leukemia

Cannabis was shown to induce cytotoxicity in leukemia cell lines, according the the journal Blood:

“We have shown that THC is a potent inducer of apoptosis, even at 1 x IC(50) (inhibitory concentration 50%) concentrations and as early as 6 hours after exposure to the drug. These effects were seen in leukemic cell lines (CEM, HEL-92, and HL60) as well as in peripheral blood mononuclear cells.”

It also did not appear that the cannabis was simply aiding other chemo drugs — it was independently bringing about results with the active compound THC responsible for cancer cell death in vitro.

Likewise, a study in the Molecular Pharmacology Journal found that non psychoactive cannabidiol dramatically induced apoptosis (cell death) in leukemia cells. “Together, the results from this study reveal that cannabidiol, acting through CB2 and regulation of Nox4 and p22(phox) expression, may be a novel and highly selective treatment for leukemia.”

Two additional studies, “p38 MAPK is involved in CB2 receptor-induced apoptosis of human leukemia cells” and “Gamma-irradiation enhances apoptosis induced by cannabidiol, a non-psychotropic cannabinoid, in cultured HL-60 myeloblastic leukemia cells“, also demonstrated the effectiveness of cannabis in promoting leukemia cell death.

Immunity

Research published in the paper Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Essential Fatty Acids found that cannabinoid compounds play a vital role in modulating the immune system to improve the outcome of a cancer diagnosis. In short, the team believes “[t]he experimental evidence reviewed in this article argues in favor of the therapeutic potential of these compounds in immune disorders and cancer.”

Moreover, the study Cannabinoids and the immune system confirms that cannabimimetic agents have substantial effects on natural killer cells, thereby providing therapeutic usefulness in reducing tumor growth and the induction of apoptosis. Therefore, cannabis demonstrates a “subtle but significant role in the regulation of immunity and that this role can eventually be exploited in the management of human disease.”

Cervical cancer

Uterine cervical cancer cells are significantly influenced by cannabis as well. Published in Gynecologic Oncology, the research team discovered that the compound induced apoptosis in cervical carcinoma (CxCa) cell lines.

Melanoma

The most deadly form of skin cancer, melanoma has relatively few options of treatment beyond prevention and early detection. With this in mind, the findings of the studyCannabinoid receptors as novel targets for the treatment of melanoma are of particular note. In animal tests, cannabinoids encouraged cancer cell death, while decreasing growth, proliferation and metastasis of melanoma cells.

Non melanoma skin cancers also respond well to cannabinoids. According to research in the Journal of Clinical Investigation:

“Local administration of [cannabinoids] induced a considerable growth inhibition of malignant tumors generated by inoculation of epidermal tumor cells into nude mice. Cannabinoid-treated tumors showed an increased number of apoptotic cells. This was accompanied by impairment of tumor vascularization, as determined by altered blood vessel morphology and decreased expression of proangiogenic factors (VEGF, placental growth factor, and angiopoietin 2). … These results support a new therapeutic approach for the treatment of skin tumors.”

These are just a few examples — among hundreds — that demonstrate the effectiveness of cannabis in eradicating cancer without adverse side-effects.

I have experienced drug and alcohol addiction, first watching my parents abuse, then growing into a full fledged drug addiction myself later in life. If I had simply stuck with pot my life could have been vastly different. I threw away 20+years of my life. Marijuana, while certainly not harmless, is way safer than any of the hard stuff, including alcohol. Simply breathing the disgusting air surrounding us creates health problems. Could smoking pot do the same? Sure it could, but I'm not going to stop. There's lots of things that can kill you. I truly wonder if I want to keep living in this awful world we live in anyway.

Does medical marijuana need THC to be effective? The psychoactive ingredient?

There are at least two species of the Cannabis genus, and breeders selectively grow cultivated forms for several purposes. I have hemp capsules, for example, a medicial herb.

I hate smoke, all smoke, and pot stinks worse than a wet dog. It seems to make people listless and happy. I know a lot of you like it, but the people I know who are habitual users seem to have changed over the years, as if their brains have been altered. It feels to me like they are retreating from the world. The lotus eaters of myth and legend.

I'll stick with my blueberry beer, one or 2 a day. Or none. It kills brain cells too.

Can most pot smokers go without their daily weed?
