If you study drugs for any length of time, one thing you'll be amazed by is the remarkably arbitrary line drawn between "acceptable" and "unacceptable" drugs.

Tobacco is regulated less than alcohol even though nicotine is highly toxic. Marijuana is medicinally illegal, even though drugs derived from THC are not.

Drug regulations are much more about society than science.

I don't know that it 'cures' anything but it definitely relieves pain and nausea. A lot of people with AIDS and cancer are so nauseous from drugs that they can't eat and marijuana not only relieves the nausea but increases the appetite as well. I have had personal experience with its medicinal benefits with zero negative side effects.

I had a friend with Lupis (sp?) at school, and we found out one afternoon that we shared the same paediatrition as you see them here until you are about 16, he was a very old school fellow, the doctor, and on one coincidental bumping into her in his surgery I noticed she was wearing a hat to hide her new hair loss. I didn't want to ask her about the chemo as such, but I asked how she was finding ways to deal with the sickness and she absolutely bowled me over when she grinned and said he had recommended she utilise the medicinal smoke approach. As I talked to her, it hit me. Whatever it takes, you know.

It must be my lack of sleep, but I read that to say "with zero gravity effects" and thought wow that's some good shit.

Marijuana does indeed have legitimate therapeutic values. I really don't see why it can't be used as medicine for this reason.

Well yeah, then there's that...the getting high part is definitely not a negative side effect, imo.

It's not a matter of what's right in the United States - very rarely has been. The reason for not wanting to allow medicinal marijuana use is simple...THE DRUG COMPANIES DO NOT WANT THIS "DRUG" TO BE USED!!! PERIOD!!!!!! They would rather make billions on all the junk they have peddled to America and the World. This is not to say that some drugs actually do some good - that they do - but if you were to really look into the Drug Companies and the "drugs" they are selling you'd be shocked. There may be an even more diabolical reason - prison for profit.
How many thousands of people in the United States are actually in prison for marijuana possession???

I find the suggestion that drug companies are trying to supress medicinal marijuana use outlandish. Don't you think drug companies would be practically salivating at the potential profits they could tap into with the medicinal mary jane market? If the government did legalize marijuana, it wouldn't be Tom, Dick, and Harry selling it anymore, it would be Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Bayer.

The involvement of pharmaceutical capital could bode very well for the development of cannabinoids as drugs. While smoking some Maui Wowie isn't as bad as lighting up a Marlboro, smoke is still pretty darned bad for you.
