Activation Of Cannabinoid Receptors May Treat Alzheimers Disease

cannabis-helps-treat-alzheimersA new study published by the journal Neurobiology of Aging has found promising evidence to suggest that Alzheimer’s disease is significantly worsened by a deficiency in the body’s cannabinoid receptors, indicating that the disease could be treated with cannabis, which naturally activates these receptors.
 
For the study, researchers implanted mice with Alzheimer’s disease, and examined a control group compared to a group which was deficient in cannabinoid receptors. Researchers found that the mice which were deficient in a particular cannabinoid receptor “showed impaired learning and memory deficits” compared to the control group.
 
According to the study’s abstract, “The surviving mice showed a reduced amount of APP and its fragments suggesting a regulatory influence of CB1 on APP processing, which was confirmed by modulating CB1 expression in vitro”.
 
Researchers conclude that these “findings indicate that CB1 deficiency can worsen AD-related cognitive deficits and support a potential role of CB1 as a pharmacologic target.”
 
These findings help to confirm a study published recently in the journal Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, which found that cannabis can slow, and potentially even cure Alzheimer’s disease.

As U.S. Embraces Marijuana, Sports May Need To Follow Suit

Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, September, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
us-embraces-mmjFor an advocacy group seeking attention, tying its cause to the kickoff of the NFL season is never a bad strategy.
 
Such was the thinking behind a billboard unveiled Wednesday by the Marijuana Policy Project not far from Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium — home of the Broncos, who hosted the Baltimore Ravens Thursday night in the first game of the 2013 NFL campaign. “Stop Driving Players To Drink!” the 48 X 14 foot message says. “A Safer Choice Is Now Legal (Here).” The visual: a football next to a beer mug.
 
Why didn’t the Marijuana Policy Project post an actual joint on the billboard? “We want people to take a look at the billboard ad and ask themselves about why we treat alcohol differently from marijuana,” says Mason Tvert, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project. “With the marijuana leaf, there tends to be this knee-jerk reaction of not liking it.”
 
Recreational marijuana is now legal (for those over 21) in Colorado and Washington, home to the Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. But the NFL and other sports leagues won’t be allowing players to smoke up in those states. Drug policies are collectively bargained between leagues and players, and in the NFL, marijuana is prohibited. Under labor law, the NFL can punish players for doing something legal — as long as the players have agreed to the policy, which in this case, they have.

John McCain On Marijuana: 'Maybe We Should Legalize'

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
legalize-mmj-says-mccainSen. John McCain indicated he may be changing his stance on marijuana legalization during a town hall event in Arizona on Thursday.
 
Arizona Daily Star columnist Tim Steller tweeted that McCain said "maybe we should legalize" during the Phoenix event:
 
McCain isn't the first one in his family to show signs of support for marijuana legalization. His daughter Meghan McCain came out in favor of pot legalization -- and admitted she'd smoked a joint -- in June 2012.
 
McCain didn't just address the topic of pot legalization during the town hall. He faced a tough crowd during the event while discussing the situation in Syria, with many in the crowd largely opposed to military action.
