Medical Marijuana Bill Wins in the New York State Assembly
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, June, 5th 2013 by THCFinder
On Monday, a bill that would allow medical marijuana use sailed through the New York State Assembly, passing with a clean 95-38. If the bill makes it through the Senate, folks with "severely debilitating or life-threatening conditions" could be prescribed pot by their doctors.
Yesterday's Assembly session heard many compelling arguments for medical marijuana--one of which came from Assemblywoman Deb Glick (D), who shared a story of her sister's chemotherapy treatment. But an unexpected anecdote also came from Assemblyman Richard Gottfried (D), a co-sponsor of the bill, who argued that marijuana wasn't similar to other criminalized drugs in that it was "one of the most benign, clinically active substances known to humanity."
"Nothing is completely safe--I wouldn't say that about marijuana or anything else," Gottfried added. "President Bush almost choked to death tossing pretzels in his mouth."
So there you have it. Too much of a good thing--including pretzels and pot--is a bad idea. But isn't one perhaps more likely to choke on a pretzel if one is dangerously high? Just kidding, Assembly. You do us proud.

Marijuana has newly discovered benefits with profound possibilities
Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, June, 4th 2013 by THCFinder
WASHINGTON, June 4, 2013 — According to new scientific evidence, breaking out the bong for some Mother Nature has multiple health benefits. According the American Journal of Medicine (AJA), the benefits are remarkable and some fly in the face of what should be expected from a drug that produces the ‘munchies’, a rabid appetite. The AJA reports no weight gain from marijuana users and reports marijuana may help prevent diabetes type 2 and obesity.
These benefits apply specifically to perennial pot smokers and not to former smokers. Socio/political cartoonist Garry Trudeau’s character “Mr. J” would be proud; obesity and diabetes type 2 benefitting from his product.
Diabetes 2 occurs when the body’s cells become resistant to insulin and cannot process insulin correctly, resulting in a potentially life-threatening metabolic disorder. The American heart Association estimates at least 35 percent of the American population has Type 2 diabetes, and diabetes type 2 is a leading cause of illness and related disabilities. Diseases such as kidney failure, heart failure, liver failure, nerve damage, arterial obstruction/restriction and a host of related diseases may be positively affected by research in this area.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are an estimated 285 million people in the world with diabetes and 90 percent are diabetes.
