National Institute of Health: They found, that THC slowed the growth of three kinds of cancer in mice: lung cancer, breast cancer, and leukemia. In 1999, scientists in Spain repeated the experiment, with equal results.

IF THEY KNEW THIS 10 YEARS AGO--WHY ARE THEY TESTING ON MICE, INSTEAD OF GIVING PEOPLE DIEING WITH CANCER THE CHANCE/OPPORTUNITY TO BE TESTED ON?? IF IT WERE ME, I WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO BE TESTED ON, JUST FOR THE CHANCE AT A LONGER-MORE PRODUCTIVE LIFE! I WISH MY BROTHER HAD BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS! IS IT POSSIBLE IT IS NOT AVAILABLE BECAUSE IT WOULD COST THE PHARMS/HOSPITALS MILLIONS IN LOSSES?? I PUT NOTHING PAST OUR GOVERMENT!

I took a class in '94 about AIDS, and they told us that AIDS patients would use marijuana to help with their pain, and appetite. Several people had even put on weight because of the marijuana. I personally think that anything that can help someone with their treatment should be made available to them. Signed and noted.

I have never understood why marijuana is illegal for medical purposes. Many other drugs, such as morphine, Dilaudid, Percodan, OxyContin, Vicodin, Darvocet, and others are far more addictive and far more harmful to the body long-term (although I'm not saying they shouldn't be used - they're just more harmful in some ways). And alcohol is certainly more harmful than marijuana.

I think that the powers-that-be are so concerned about marijuana because it can actually be grown by anyone in his own back yard. And that makes it harder to keep out of people's hands.

This medicinal so called drug has been covered up for hundreds of years by the government who do not want us to know it's health benefits, they want us to buy into the pharma industry which as some of us know is a big scam, selling poisonous medication for profit, which is also tested on animals which does not help humans at all as their results are inconclusive.
Marijuana is a herb not a drug!

Signed and noted, its never been illegal in my mind. None of these self-serving "man-made " laws have ever meant much to me, even when i payed dearly for those thoughts. The Only laws are the universal ones and the imbedded instinctiveness in us ALL to do what is required at the time. Thx Brenda. Our hearts make the "law"......

Signed and noted. It's illegal because it benefits government and organized crime, that's all. Otherwise, everything Mae said above. Thank you, Brenda!

People have gotten it into their heads that marijuana is a bad thing. Its only bad because of the idea of smoking it as a way of getting high. It became public knowledge as a result and then classed as a bad thing so laws came into affect.

They tested marijuana on mice because the scientists being completely dumb dont have a clue of what they do. Typical vivisectors that they are they test all sorts of ideas on animals, they are paid to do so.

Many pants or flora also have different affects on maany animals for some animals a particular plant is poisonous but with a human the plant is harmless.

Many tests have in the past proved useless and caused untold casualties of death or serious illnesses from pharmaceuticals tested on animals.
Big pharma is a money making machine which will do anything to keep those facts covered up. Its all backed by the governments.

Most people already know animal testing or vivisection (which it is anyway), is completely inaccurate. Results always prove misleading.

An example is when arsnic was given to animals it did not affect them but with humans it is indeed a poison.
Vivisectors once gave a powdered glass to cats in milk, they drank it all. No harmfull effects were noticed.

The Hans Ruesch centre site has a few examples, the book Slaughter of the innocent has a few more facts, Naked Empress has yet more facts but of course the books were never published world wide enough. The scum stopped the damaging novels getting to enough people which would indeed have ruined the pharmaceutical industry big time.

Theres plenty of information out there one just has to find it.

WHy the vivisectors tested the marijuana on animals is obvious, to satisfy curiosity.

Why the tests in the first place? Everyone already knows what marijuana is and it is not a harmfull substance. Getting high is silly but vivisection was not needed to prove that.

Governemnts back vivisection, they back the entire pharmaceutical industry. The whole point of that is to keep people away from natural remedies used from plants. If the people realized what comes from the earth is the actual cure to cancer as well as all other diseases and what they eat, the pharmaceutical industry is officially finished!

The vivisectors know this, the governments know this, they depend on the liars to keep it all going.
Many people have died because of big pharma. They are one of the biggest liars in history.
They will deny every last attempt against people who know the truth. Animal rights folk have been beaten because we did not attack them on their grounds, we did not attack them on medical grounds.

So its time we all did. For the animals and especially for all those people who suffered because of the lies they believed in big pharma and suffered for it.

I saw in an old medical text once that marijuana used to prescribed by physicians for certain ailments (long before our "war on drugs", of course.)

Every study I've ever seen shows that marijuana is not a deadly drug. It is positively mild compared to various other narcotics. I just cannot understand why people who need it are forbidden to use it, even through prescription.

Of course, I also believe that drugs should be completely decriminalized in total. But, even for those who don't believe in legalizing drugs, marijuana just isn't really something we should worry too much about.
