Stanford University released a study that will most likely add more fuel to the already contentious debate over medical marijuana, especially regarding its possible use by kids. The study, released in April, shows that cannabinoids, which are found in cannabis, might help treat autism. In the human brain, endocannabinoid signaling affects memory formation, learning, and other processes, but forms of autism can block these signals. When cannabinoids were present in the brains of mice being studied, these signals were able to get through. While more research is needed, autism groups are hopefull about the possibilties of medical marijuana. As the Autism Daily Newscast put it, "Many children with autism are already given cocktails of drugs that may be even stronger than marijuana, with serious side effects and limited results.

Despite Colorado's marijuana laws, employers allowed to ban it's use

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
able-to-ban-marijuana-useAlthough Von Miller plays professional football in Colorado, where marijuana is legal, he still has to play by the rules of the NFL.
 
Amendment 64, which was approved by Colorado voters in November 2012, is now enacted as Article 18, Section 16 of the state constitution. The amendment allows those 21 years of age or older to use and possess marijuana.
However, the amendment states: "Nothing in this section is intended ... to affect the ability of employers to have policies restricting the use of marijuana by employees."
 
In short, even though the law permits marijuana use, private businesses don't have to. Marijuana is one of the drugs banned by the NFL.
 
Miller is appealing a four-game suspension for an unspecified violation of the NFL drug policy. The Denver Post received documentation that showed Miller tested positive for marijuana multiple times during his 2011 rookie season.

New Study: Cannabis Can Inhibit The Pain Associated With Bone Cancer

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 28th 2013 by THCFinder
bone-cancer-mmjA new study conducted by the Department of Diagnostic and Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota, and published in the most recent issue of the journal Neuroscience, has found that cannabinoids – compounds found in cannabis such as THC – can stop the pain associated with bone cancer by activating an individual’s cannabinoid receptors.
 
“These results indicate that activation of either CB1 or CB2 receptors reduced the spontaneous activity of C-fiber nociceptors associated with tumor growth as well as their evoked responses”, states the study’s abstract, “Our results provide further evidence that activation of peripheral cannabinoid receptors may be a useful target for the treatment of cancer pain.”
 
The potential of cannabis as a treatment for cancer pains is an important one. As researchers note; “Pain from cancer can be severe, difficult to treat, and greatly diminishes patients’ quality of life. It is therefore important to gain new information on the mechanisms of cancer pain and develop new treatment strategies.”
 
Obviously further research is needed to help validate these findings, but they’re certainly promising.
