"We used injections in the animal testing and are also testing pills," he said. "But you could never get enough Cannabidiol for it to be effective just from smoking."

Challenge accepted.

The cancers mellow out?


Cancer Cell 1
"Whoa. What if we're all like, small, and in the body of some even bigger living thing"

Cancer Cell 2
"Duuuude, that's heavy. Maybe we all are, like, parts of god. And how we live our lives, and how we treat our surroundings, either helps of harms him"

Cancer Cell 1
"Or her"

Cancer Cell 2
"Wow, i don't even know what a her is but that's trippy."

Cancer Cell 1
"I'm not so sure anymore we should keep expanding the way we have. I mean, what if all that stuff we're thinking of invading is important to god?"

No way, man. I get it. The black car represents cancer, you know? And the chick, see, she's the one who's got the cancer, man. Probably some stage-four super aggressive stuff, man. She looks terrified! And the white car, you know, is marijuana, right? Saving the day and shiat, fark yeah it is, man!

I totally get it.

// what?

I don't know what it's from, but it doesn't really seem all that out of place in here.

I heard this in the voice of Neil from The Young Ones.

Mr. Eugenides: Except that in this case you're comparing a drug that farks you up mentally with one that keeps you clear headed. So if you have a drug that doesn't work as well and has side effects I'd say use the good stuff. The good stuff isn't pot.

Are you suggesting that the various drugs given for cancer are without side effects? Or that it's somehow unacceptable to have a drug that alters your baseline state?


I'm speaking as someone who has had to deal with chemotherapy more times in the past 30 years than I hope you ever have to. I've seen the side therapys change and while pot may have had a place 20 years ago, it has been far surpassed.

Appeal to authority much?

You don't legalize a drug for it's side effects.

m2313: Old news.
Or maybe I have too many stoner friends?
But yeah, I've known the mechanism of it essentially going in and "shutting down"/"suiciding" the cancer cells for a while.


If it's not a legitimate cancer the body has a way of shutting that down

GAT_00: Desprez, a molecular biologist, spent decades studying ID-1, the gene that causes cancer to spread. Meanwhile, fellow researcher Sean McAllister was studying the effects of Cannabidiol, or CBD, a non-toxic, non-psychoactive chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Finally, the pair collaborated, combining CBD and cells containing high levels of ID-1 in a petri dish.

"What we found was that his Cannabidiol could essentially 'turn off' the ID-1," Desprez told HuffPost. The cells stopped spreading and returned to normal.

So, the Cannabidiol can be synthesized I assume? Cool. But to people who are inevitably going to come in here and demanding we legalize pot, I would point out that nobody has proved that smoking pot stops cancer. Use the actual medicine, not the excuse.


Thank god. I'd hate to be high all the time.

MrHelpful: Weaver95: now remember - it is the OFFICIAL policy of the US government that cannibis has NO valid medical properties. if you use cannabis in ANY way for ANY reason, the US federal government WILL find you, they will arrest you and they will put you in jail. No exceptions, no excuses, zero...tolerance.

enjoy your slow and painful death from cancer, and be comforted by the knowledge that cannabis will never be used to save your life.

I guess you missed the part of the article which said you cant smoke enough pot to get the healing effect. In other words, there's no connection between smoking pot and stopping the ravages of cancer. But, you're a zealot and that's what zealots do - conveniently ignore things which don't fit their narrative.


You hear that Weaver? You're a zealot! A pot zealot!!! I mean, o my f'in god!! I mean.. what's it like? Are the hours good?

why create a synthetic when you could easily grow and extract what you need from the plant itself? cheaply too, not to mention that the plant itself is relatively easy to breed into useful strains.

of course, once you admit that cannabis DOES have useful medical properties, the ENTIRE argument against legalization falls apart. And that's why we'd rather let people die a horrible painful death than legalize the meds that would save their lives.


Well, there's THAT, there's the fact that legalized cannabis would mean people would start buying books and newspapers printed on hemp paper instead of wood paper, and the devil weed makes colored folks play jazz music and look at white women.
