    if yah have a sensitive enough test, every person on earth would pop positive for pot......we are hard wired for it to work with us.....our body produces atleast 2 chemicals that are basically identical to the main family of drugs in the pot.....guess what science has shown these "man made" chemicals seem to do? work directly with the immune system.........

    the hard science is there if you actually care to look and not just dismiss it.......
    Oh no, I don't doubt that..it's just that some people seem to like to think it's the answer to all of life's problems, and use it's benifits as an excuse to get wasted 24/7.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Cancer doesn't really have much of a cure. Really you need gene therapy, and we are getting better at it.

    actually yah look at most real patients......they are looking for relief without getting stoned....except for very few things the euphoria is a hinderance more than a help.....look at alot of the talk on the medical use blogs and there is lil talk about THC and what talk there is is of varieties with lower THC coupled with high CBD levels....

    gotta figure a whole lot of true medicinal users are coming off long term opiate use......they have had scripts to be stoned out of their gourd for a long time already.....aint what they are after.....

    marijuana is not a magic bullet for all ills but the science is there that it is atleast helpful for a hell of alot of things......and helpful with a lower number or intensity of side effects than alot of pills.....i fully qualify for a medicinal card in my home state.....have passed on it for legal reasons revolving around the fact i have two teenagers in the house with their friends constantly coming through and the fact part of my job involves pissing off various ppl via the editorial page of one of my papers and its a bad plan for me as far as legal complications that could very well arise....

    that said ive been taking opiate pain killers daily for over 6 years.....opiates aint meant for daily use......they work great for acute pain, to get yah through a busted bone or get yah through post op pain.....for chronic pain the side effects with daily use for months on end really, really, really suck.....the effective duration is to short, the tolerance builds up to quick, and the physical addiction issues are not pleasant......

    your skipping over a whole lot of studies......in the sence being discussed here we arent just talking smoking the raw flowers.....also discussing purified forms of the various active chemicals in the usual medical setting.....

    from the first link I found:
    http://www.scmedicalmarijuana.com/me...ing-marijuana/
    "His earlier studies have suggested that marijuana could be useful in the fight against cancer, however the new publishings seem to contradict those findings."

    actually boils down to the fact all cancers arent created equal....his findings still hold alot of weight in those cancers affecting cells involved with the immune system.....

    one of those things, some years ago it was discovered one bacteria normally found in the human gut has links to a certain type of cancer but remove that bacteria from the gut and other health issues pop up.....human life is actually a fairly delicate balance.....throw in differences in body chemistry from one person to the next and things get real complicated fast....

    my sister is highly sensitive to the strep virus and has it up to once a month on a fairly regular basis....if i have ever had strep it was never bad enough to go to the doctor for so if you go through my medical file you will not find one positive diagnosis for strep.....took 28 years for me to discover im allergic to sulfa antibiotics cause i am so rarely sick enough to need them....

    two kids, from the same parents, grown up in the same environment......two very different ends of the spectrum as far as disease......
