Dr.Christina Sanchez explains how cannabis kills cancer cells

Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain explains how THC kills cancer cells. Cristina Sánchez The goal of her research is to understand and exploit cannabinoids as potential antitumoral agents in breast cancer.

Now this is a ball breaker. Human Rights comes into force when a fully informed 'patient' addicted to nicotine (smoking) can mediate harms/lower risks by smoking an alternative.

 

Cannabis not only displaces tobacco uptake but reduces harm where it doesn't. Suppression of this option voids the public health imperative. It is not enough to say "No' and leave nothing but worst case outcomes for those who can't say No..

Sometimes I just want to look at complete grow journals by other growers. I know I get a lot of ideas and inspiration from seeing how other growers do their gardens. That's why we made this page to start cataloging grow journals from around the net. Each of the 5 grow journals has tons of pics showing the plants from seed to harvest, and we will be adding more. Contact us if you'd like to get your grow journal added, too!

Drug Testing for cannabis in the work-place: [the search for evidence to support the policy]

Drug Testing for cannabis in the work-place: [the search for evidence to support the policy] | Pain Killer the weed | Scoop.it

 COMMENTARY Taking its questions in turn, the answers from this review appear to be:
• Do the acute effects of cannabis impair performance? Yes, but only for the few hours it remains active in the body.
• Does cannabis withdrawal impair performance? Not known but unlikely to be any appreciable impact.
• Are long-term cannabis users at increased risk of job accidents? No direct evidence and findings and implications of studies of cognitive impairment are unclear.
• Are those who test positive for cannabis or who self-report use at increased risk for injuries or accidents? Unclear; findings mixed and research methodologically unsound.
• Does workplace drug testing deter drug use among employees? Probably, but could be other explanations for dips in positive tests.
• Does workplace drug testing reduce injuries or accidents? Unclear due to methodological limitations of the research.

Research Finds 'Weed' May Block The Spread of HIV

Research Finds 'Weed' May Block The Spread of HIV | Pain Killer the weed | Scoop.it

"While this article will not address in-depth the origin of the SIV-to-HIV crossover event, it should be noted that the prevailing explanation known as the 'bushmeat' hypothesis – crossover presumably caused by human contact with the blood of chimps hunted in Africa – overlooks several important facts: 1) SIVs have been in close contact with humans for at least 32,000 years without the emergence of HIV.[i] 2) The HIV epidemic occurred suddenly in the mid-20th century coterminous with the introduction of vaccines with the original HIV-afflicted African populations. 3) The monkey tissue based vaccine production process has already produced similar cross-over events, with millions around the world being infected with SV-40 contaminated oral polio vaccines.  Given these facts, HIV should not be classified as a zoonosis[ii] (an infectious disease transmitted between species), but a direct result of human activity, and likely biomedical intervention, specifically vaccines."
