Science Finally Explains How Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells And It's Pretty Amazing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

Only recently we had published an article explaining how scientists at the National Institute of Health (NIH) have found cannabis to be a potential killer of cancer cells. You can read the article here.

On that note, we're going to talk about a scientific explanation that supports the NIH claim: "cannabis and cannabinoids may have benefits in treating the symptoms of cancer or the side effects of cancer therapies."

A molecular biologist, Dr Christina Sanchez, at the Compultense University in Madrid (Spain) spells out the exact mechanism at work, wherein the THC - "the main psychoactive constitute of the cannabis plant" - completely destroys the cancer cells.

Cannabinoids is a group of compounds that comprise cannabinol and the active components of cannabis. These bring the cannabinoid receptors in our body alive. Dr Sanchez explains how our body itself produces endocannabinoids that activate various processes within, "creating a healthy environment". According to her, it's important to note that cannabis has the potential to kill anything cancerous, without giving birth to any psychoactive effects.Read More:http://www.indiatimes.com/news/world/science-finally-explains-how-cannabis-kills-cancer-cells-and-its-pretty-amazing-244847.html

Alaska: Third Round Of Proposed Marijuana Rules Under Consideration

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

alaska marijuana legalizationIf you live in Alaska, check out the message I received below and get active:

Dear Johnny:

The third round of proposed rules drafted by the Marijuana Control Board (MCB) has been issued, and those who wish to provide feedback may do so before 4:30 p.m. Thursday, September 10. The current set of rules addresses regulations related to cultivators, product manufacturing, and testing.

If you wish to be heard, please take a moment to provide your feedback to the MCB. And take a look at the campaign’s comments, available here.

As with previous rounds, most of the proposed rules are reasonable, but several areas should be improved. For example:

— The draft rules would prohibit the sale of marijuana-infused cooking oil directly to consumers — which could be burdensome to medical marijuana patients who wish to create their own edibles.

— The rules seek to impose an artificial limit on the percentage of THC available in any product, despite the fact that the federal government has approved a medicine that contains 100% synthetic THC.

— They would prohibit cultivators from allowing odors to be detected by the public, even for large operations in rural areas.

For a closer look at our comments, take a look at our letter to the board. And if you wish, you can either submit your own comments or click here to send an email to the board immediately.

Then, please forward this email to other Alaskans who support fair rules for regulating the state’s emerging marijuana marketplace.

US Sen. Elizabeth Warren Is 'Open' To Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

Category: News | Posted on Fri, September, 4th 2015 by THCFinder

U.S. senator and democratic darling Elizabeth Warren has changed her stance on marijuana legalization. 

According to Boston.com, she told Joshua Miller of The Boston Globe on Wednesday that she is now open to ballot questions seeking to legalize pot.

“You were opposed to legalization in 2012. As a Massachusetts voter, what’s your position today?” Miller asked Warren.

“I’m open to it,” she replied. “I think we’ve learned more. A couple of states have legalized marijuana for recreational use. Frankly, I think we ought to be learning what we can from those states.”

Warren also said that she is a proponent of marijuana research and has been "pushing the federal government" to step up its game. 

This week, the Massachusetts attorney general ruled in favor of a proposed ballot question calling for the legalization of recreational pot. Sponsors of the initiative need to gather nearly 65,000 signatures by November 28 to secure a spot on the 2016 ballot.
