New Study Finds THC Kills Stomach Cancer Cells

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, July, 9th 2013 by THCFinder
cannabis-kills-cancersA new study conducted by the the Catholic University of Korea, College of Medicine, and published in the journal Anticancer Research, has found promising evidence that THC may be the best medicine available to treat stomach cancer,especially when traditional medicine has been ineffective.
 
During the study researchers used cancer cells that were resistant to chemotherapy, and dosed the cells with a synthetic form of delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), one of the primary compounds found in cannabis. Researchers noted a drastic reduction in the survival rate of the cells that were exposed to the synthetic THC.
 
When conducting the study researchers found that larger doses of THC led to higher rates of cancer cell death, validating the initial finding that it can be an effective treatment (natural THC is likely even more effective).
 
Although more research is needed, hopefully this study – in addition to numerous others that have been released recently – will pave the way for cannabis being used as a standard – and not alternative – medicine in treating various forms of cancer.

Medical Marijuana Deemed Kosher By Israeli Rabbi

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
kush-is-kosherRabbi Efraim Zalmanovich, an orthodox rabbi of some reputation, has issued a religious ruling sanctifying the use of marijuana as a medicine prescribed by a doctor to treat pain or other symptoms. In Israel, health care providers may prescribe marijuana for more than 30 health ailments, including Parkinson's disease, cancer, and chronic pain.
 
Zalmanovich specified that smoking marijuana for a recreational high or as an escape from the rigors of life is not sanctioned by religion, however.
 
"Taking drugs to escape this world in any excessive way is certainly forbidden," Zalmanovich said. "However, if the drug is administered to relieve pain, then the person giving it is performing a mitzvah."
In the Jewish tradition, a mitzvah is a good deed one must collect to enter heaven in the afterlife.
 
The rabbi's ruling clarifies an opinion by Rabbi Hagai Bar Giora, of the Israeli chief rabbinate, who in March told reporters, "If you smoke it, there is no problem whatsoever."

States high on high tech to track medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, July, 8th 2013 by THCFinder
mass-mj-trackingMedical marijuana is about to become a high-tech endeavor in Massachusetts, with the state exploring the acquisition of what is likely to be a multimillion-dollar IT program to monitor the so-called seed-to-sale production, transport and handling of what will continue to be a controlled substance.
 
The state is soliciting for consultants to advise regulators of the state’s new medical marijuana industry on how long it would take, and how much work would be required, to build a computer software system to handle “the Medical Marijuana Systems Project,” according to a state Executive Office of Health and Human Services request for information.
 
The state’s RFI lands nine months after Bay State voters agreed to let qualified sick people use marijuana.
 
Though marijuana is still banned under federal law, Massachusetts is among more than a dozen states that have legalized it for medicinal reasons.
 
One company that produced medical marijuana tracking software, MJ Freeway of Colorado, has already hired local lobbyists, the Herald reported last month, as part of a broader story on the big business behind medical marijuana.
 
The Department of Public Health’s medical marijuana rules call for the creation of “a single electronic system” that would “capture everything that happens to an individual marijuana plant, from seed and cultivation” to final sale, adding that the “system shall chronicle every step, ingredient, activity, transaction, and dispensary agent, registered qualifying patient, or personal caregiver who handles, obtains, or possesses the product. This system shall utilize a unique plant identification and unique batch identification.”

MARIJUANA GROW HOUSES: How many plants are too many?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, July, 7th 2013 by THCFinder
mj-grow-houseHopefully you will remember the story The Press-Enterprise wrote about the houses in Eastvale that had been converted into marijuana grow-houses.
 
We also wrote about the Special Enforcement Team deputies who uproot these operations.
 
Well, the other day we received an email from an anonymous person who mentioned these Eastvale farming operations and correctly pointed out that there is no limit to the number of plants you can grow for medicinal-marijuana use. Good enough.
 
I ran this person’s letter past a law-enforcement officer I know, and he pointed out something that the letter-writer left out: Why, if these people who are growing marijuana in Eastvale are doing so for legitimate medicinal purposes, did they illegally bypass the electrical system? And why did they damage the property they were renting by making wholesale changes to the house?
 
Anyway, here is the letter from the marijuana advocate, word for word. These are his opinions, not ours.
 
“City to pass anti-pot growing ordinance soon. The City needs to be very careful in doing it so they don’t trash the rights of qualified patients who grow their own lawful medicine. One size does not fit all. Not everyone who uses med marijuana is a pot head, a drug addict, or to ‘get high’.
 
“Take caution and Note that Prop 215 does not establish any limits on where or the amount of med marijuana qualified patients can cultivate for themselves; none whatsoever. The Legislature tried to limit how many plants can be grown by a qualified patient, and the state Supreme Court ruled that was an “unconstitutional amendment of Prop 215″ because the voters did not vote on any such numerical limits; People v. Kelley.
