Legalize it, you farktards.

I don't normally wish pain and suffering on people, but I'm very willing to make an exception for all the idiots who have maintained for years that weed is the worst thing in this entire world and has absolutely no redeeming values.  Yes, DEA and Congress, I'm looking at you.

Keep it illegal.  Makes it easier to get and cheaper.

FTA:  So, smoke it up to cure cancer?
"That's one thing I've been trying to fight against for quite a few years now," Liu said.
The bottom line here, he says, is that when all of the chemicals are burned or eaten at once - the usual way cannabis is used medicinally and recreationally - the positive, cancer-fighting effects could be lost in the mix.


That's the part many people seem to ignore. Smoking weed does not and WILL not "cure" cancer, nor will mixing it into brownies, making an extract and putting it into your vape, or any other foolish claims.

vudukungfu: Legalize it, you farktards.


Totally agree. There's zero valid reason to keep weed illegal. None. Not a shred of fact.

In my day, we didn't have medical marijuanie, gay marriage or women sporting Brazilians. Just an onion on a $300 Ferragamo belt from Barneys, with $10 off for the blood stains from the beatdown of the previous owner.

Ugh, this sounds like another one of those studies where something is put in a petri dish/solution outside of the human body and found to kill cancer cells.  Yes, so add some cannabus compounds to the many thousands of of other compounds that work on killing cells outside the human body.  Science people!

I am all for the legalization of pot. However, it does not cure cancer, nor much of anything else besides stress.
 
2013-10-23 09:28:20 AM
Legalize it.

However, this kind of stuff is unmitigated bullshiat.

Cures lack of desire to eat. Least for me.
 
2013-10-23 09:32:16 AM
Given what has happened to me in the last 48 hours, I could use some legal weed.
 
2013-10-23 09:32:25 AM
But legalizing it reduces paranoia, making it less likely people will check themselves for cancer.

Study it out, people. Pray on it.

My friend is dying from cancer. Weed isn't helping other than it gets him to eat and eases the pain of chemo a little.

So it isn't helping other than the ways it is helping.

Using cannabis makes more sense then using drugs that's side effects are worse than the actual ailment the drug was prescribed for, in my opinion.
 
2013-10-23 09:36:48 AM
It already is legal. I live in the throwback state of AZ, and if I pay enough $$$, I can get at the store right down the street.
 AZ, people.

Nice, selective post.

I have lost count of how many things have been claimed to "cure cancer" in mice or in a petri dish and haven't worked in humans.  Nothing to see here.

Weed cures cancer now?

It would be intresting to see if they put legalize canbis on the presidential vote ballot coming up.
I bet we would get record amount of voters.

He said the anticancer activity of THC has been "known for sometime ..."

This guy is a farking liar. Pot is a scheduled narcotic with NO LEGITIMATE MEDICAL USE. The government told us so. Who are you going to believe some commie chinaman or good old uncle sam.

I remember trying to database a fully-complete, all-encompassing herbal. What I learned was that pretty much any food-like item we put in our bodies is simultaneously cancer-causing and cancer-defeating. Yay, omnivores?

I still think smoking weed is a bad idea.  Did it myself as a youth, watched all too many friends lose ambition, turn to crime, and otherwise ruin/end their lives because of it.  Of course I can say much the same about booze.  Not everyone has the support system/personal strength to handle it responsibly.

If only.  Was more along the lines of being unable to function at their low paying jobs, getting fired, and turning to burglary to pay for their next bag.  Mind you this was in the days of $20 bags.

Sort of like how that loser Alexander Flemming who noticed that Penicillium rubens released a substance with antibiotic properties.

Of course, as we all know, his test was in a dish/solution outside of the human body and that is why penicillin never really worked out.

Real science!
 
2013-10-23 10:24:03 AM
Who/what is really keeping it illegal? Isn't it just a matter of the FDA to change it's Schedule I status? I don't think it actually needs an act of congress to happen unless a new law was passed to either outright ban or to ban the banning.

Eh, I think I covered that with my not everyone has the support system proviso.  These weren't necessarily college bound kids to start with.  From my own experience, I can certainly say that smoking made me lazy and not care.

Anyway, I'm off to go be productive, carry on without me.

I just got my Michigan card for a form of spinal arthritis. The anti-inflammatory effect of marijuana actually helps prevent my vertebrae from fusing together. Humera can do the same, but Humera's side effects are pretty scary.

I'm old and retired.  The productivity in this case is going to change a ceiling light bulb for an elderly lady.  You know, volunteer work.  But you just stick to your preconceived notions.
