Ex-Bear Jim McMahon: Medical marijuana got me off narcotic pain pills

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, January, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Former Super Bowl champion and Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon says an unfairly demonized drug helped him recover from the pain of his football career: medical marijuana.

McMahon was in Chicago this week, where he attended Tuesday's Bears reunion marking the 30th anniversary of their Super Bowl victory. He was also featured in an ESPN "30 for 30" screening of a documentary about the team, which includes a focus on his health struggles.

Now 56, McMahon has been plagued by debilitating health problems following his 15-year career and multiple concussions in the National Football League. He has been diagnosed with early onset dementia and has severe headaches, depression, memory loss, and vision and speech problems. He also said he suffered a broken neck.

This is a notice of a conference of significance in the medical cannabis field. The Research Summit will be held on March 22-23 at the Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

After viewing the advertisement for the event I question the premise, as the cannabinoid system itself has no adverse effects; the phrasing of the event’s summary implies a bias toward finding harm, a charge that Dr. Sanjay Gupta and other have levied against the NIH and NIDA for some time.

The discussions will include a Michigan contingent, as Dr. Christine Rabinak from Wayne State University will participate in the section reserved for Therapeutic Potential: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Pain, PTSD/Anxiety. 

She was the lead author on a paper published in 2013 regarding marijuana use and PTSD.

Bernie Sanders Puts High School Marijuana Essays in Congressional Record

Category: Politics | Posted on Fri, January, 29th 2016 by THCFinder

Although Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has been campaigning hard for the past several weeks in hopes of making an impressive showing at the upcoming Iowa Caucus, this has not stopped him from continuing his fight to end marijuana prohibition in the United States—showing Congress that even the youth of the nation support legalization.

As part of his annual State of the Union essay contest for Vermont high school students, which consisted this year of around 800 entries, Sanders recently filed the work of several finalists in theCongressional Record, two of which are essays focusing on the desperate need for the federal government to reform its policies against marijuana. 

Pointing out the dreary U.S. economy, Mikayla Clarke, who attends Bellows Falls Union High School, wrote in her essay that legalizing marijuana would serve as an avenue for digging the nation out of $18.7 trillion of debt.
