Scooby - the Guardian article notes (about that drug trial):
"Earlier reports suggested that the drug contained cannabinoids, an active ingredient found in cannabis plants, but the minister said it did not contain the drug or any derivatives of it."

Signed both.

The medical profession is increasingly recognising that cannabis can be the most effective treatment for certain pathologies - when will Federal law catch up?

Signed, thanks AniMae. This site is becoming increasing difficult to do anything I went from Microsoft Edge to Internet explorer and am now using google chrome. I sent a message to the support team but had to do it in wordpad and copy and paste it into their contact form because i was unable to type more than a few letters into the form itself.While I am able to type in google chrome there is lag time between my actual typing and the words appearing on the page. I get the message that care2 is not responding due to a long running script which I'm assuming is because of the ads. Is anyone else having similar issues?

Scooby, Doo - I did a c2nn on the French Experimental UNKNOWN drug, that caused so many people to be harmed, and sadly one person to die.- you can read the report here -

A shocking case of misinformation, to frighten people off using cannabis as a pain killer,in my opinion -&- why no public retraction? . The drug that was being trialled is not known, despite reports it was a new cannabinoid-based painkiller.- read on ..

Marijuana works MUCH BETTER than most drugs for a great variety of ills, both Physical and Psychological - it is a true MIRACLE PLANT. Potentially you, most everybody, could grow-your-own medicine. Or grow it and GIVE it away to your neighbors.....
It is NO WONDER that Big Pharma has gone VICIOUSLY ALL-OUT AGAINST CANNABIS.
Its use would INSTANTLY obviate the "need" for MOST OF ITS ARTIFICIAL DRUGS developed in the last 50 years. And the idea of FREE MEDICINE.... oh, no, not THAT!
Marijuana SHOWS UP THE INNATE HORRORS OF THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM. The Greedy, Selfish, TOTALLY EVIL AND IMMORAL $Y$TEM WHERE EVERYTHING - even everything NECESSARY TO LIFE - food, life-saving medicine, the water, the air - is PRIVATIZED FOR PROFIT$$$.

It would not surprise me in the LEAST, in fact I think it EXTREMELY LIKELY - that the Drug Trials for SYNTHETIC Marijuana WERE SET UP DELIBERATELY TO SCARE PEOPLE - and the Drug Companies DELIBERATELY COMMITTED MURDER IN ORDER TO SCARE LEGISLATORS INTO KEEPING MARIJUANA ILLEGAL AND KEEPING BIG PHARMA'S EVIL IMMORAL UNSCRUPULOUS PROFIT$$$$$ GOING.....
This is why THE ENTIRE CORPORATE CAPITALIST SYSTEM - MUST GO!
WE must destroy IT - or IT will destroy US - which is ALREADY HAPPENING as we see here!!!

#2,649. Thank you Susan V. and AniMae. It's ridiculous that marijuana its't available to anyone who wants it. I'm fortunate to live in Colorado where it's legal. EDWIN, I am having similar issues with Care2. As well as the lag time, which includes giving green stars, the slide bar will become immobile, there are miscalculations of butterflies, special day cards are not given, some comments won't post and the delay is so frustrating that getting anything done that requires typing takes forever. It probably is the ads and all of the information gathering that flashes in the lower left hand corner in most sections. I know it isn't my computer. I have zero problems anywhere else

I also changed from IE to Google Chrome, which I'll admit did help a lot, but still having some of the similar issues as everyone else I've spoken to. But, like AniMae said, the Care2 Support Team is working on it, and things should get better for us! Do you submit your concerns at the Feedback & Suggestions thread? I've found I get much better results from there, especially from Eric, than just using the Care2 Contact Form, actually I never got a response from using the Contact Form, only from the F & S thread. Best wishes! :-)

As a greenhorn, I planted 40 years ago, in my home canton in the Italian-speaking Switzerland the "most beautiful Ticino" absolutely phenomenal Outdoor Marijuana (and not this nasty chemical contaminated indoor grass). Unfortunately, I can take since 10 to 12 years simply no longer smoking Grass (Bull shit, sorry). ~ Suddenly one day I got, after smoking joints always really strong psychoses and believe me, they were really not funny, really a shame, because it had so helped me, my broken discs to tolerate pain. Although in Switzerland the smoke of "narcotics" (still) is always prohibited by law, the tendency is towards, grass to smoke at least on the basis of state legalize. Is also time, alcohol was until 20 years ago, for example, extremely expensive, then the prices go down just 50 % and here our stupid government has willingly participated. Result: From 8,000,000 inhabitants, there is sure to 200,000 heavy alcohol addicts, and latter, our health insurance costs billions Swiss francs annually. Where is the logic here well??? ~

US Government Admits Marijuana Kills Cancer Cells

Share on TwitterShare on Facebook

The National Institute on Drug Abuse updated their website recently, pertaining to marijuana. While it still states clearly that:

“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.”

It follows by saying that there are now 2 FDA-approved medications containing cannabinoids in pill form. These drugs, dronabinol (Marinol) and nabilone (Cesamet), both of which contain THC. There is also a drug used in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe called

There is also a drug used in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe called nabiximols (Sativex). Sativex is a mouth spray containing THC and CBD, used to treat muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis. In addition, a new creation called Epidiolex, is a CBD-based liquid drug is intended to treat certain forms of childhood epilepsy, though it has not yet undergone clinical trials.

NIDA states that THC increases appetite and reduces nausea, and may also decrease pain, inflammation (swelling and redness), and muscle control spasms. It also states that CBD is useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and possibly even treating mental illness and addictions.

Most of this is common sense for those in the medical marijuana community. Though NIDA states on a linked page that the effects of marijuana can include paranoia and the worsening of symptoms of schizophrenia, CBD is a treatment for these exact conditions. Strange how they can do that, say one thing, say the opposite, and still be credible.

The big change on their page is that they cite
“…recent animal studies have shown that marijuana extracts may help kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others. Evidence from one cell culture study suggests that purified extracts from whole-plant marijuana can slow the growth of cancer cells from one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that treatment with purified extracts of THC and CBD, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation (Scott, 2014).”

This recent study conducted by a group of scientists at St. George’s University, London, was published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal in November.

“The benefits of the cannabis plant elements were known before but the drastic reduction of brain cancers if used with irradiation is something new and may well prove promising for patients who are in gravely serious situations with such cancers in the future,” Dr Wai Liu, Senior Research Fellow and lead researcher on the project.

So What Is Going on With Medicine?
The hypocrisy here is what it has been for hundreds of years. The birth of the medical profession was one of the causes of the mass executions of witches in Medieval times. Those with the knowledge of Nature’s remedies were viewed as a threat to the control over the masses sought by the educated medical class. It is also worth noting how this persecution allowed the dominance of men in a field formerly presided over mainly by women, stripping them of power.

Any healing must be controlled, because it allows independence. Without their control of our health, suddenly they cease to have purpose, and value. This is also a reason for control of power sources, religion, land, guns, media, and free speech.

The irony in controlling marijuana as a medicine is that most of our medicines come from natural origins.

Opium, Morphine, Aspirin, Atropine, Ephedrine, Quinine, Emetine, Digoxin, Tubocurarine, Reserpine, Artemisin, Vinblastin, Menthol, Cocaine, Papain, Tetracycline, Salacylic Acid, Capsaicin, Senna, Cortisone….. The list goes on and on.

The fact that we can be healed by a plant is dangerous to these companies that would rather take the plant, synthesize it into a pill, and charge lots of money for something that could be grown at home.

You can read more on their website.

“…recent animal studies have shown that marijuana extracts may help kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others. Evidence from one cell culture study suggests that purified extracts from whole-plant marijuana can slow the growth of cancer cells from one of the most serious types of brain tumors. Research in mice showed that treatment with purified extracts of THC and CBD, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation (Scott, 2014).”

This recent study conducted by a group of scientists at St. George’s University, London, was published in Molecular Cancer Therapeutics journal in November.

“The benefits of the cannabis plant elements were known before but the drastic reduction of brain cancers if used with irradiation is something new and may well prove promising for patients who are in gravely serious situations with such cancers in the future,” Dr Wai Liu, Senior Research Fellow and lead researcher on the project.

So What Is Going on With Medicine?
The hypocrisy here is what it has been for hundreds of years. The birth of the medical profession was one of the causes of the mass executions of witches in Medieval times. Those with the knowledge of Nature’s remedies were viewed as a threat to the control over the masses sought by the educated medical class. It is also worth noting how this persecution allowed the dominance of men in a field formerly presided over mainly by women, stripping them of power.

Any healing must be controlled, because it allows independence. Without their control of our health, suddenly they cease to have purpose, and value. This is also a reason for control of power sources, religion, land, guns, media, and free speech.

The irony in controlling marijuana as a medicine is that most of our medicines come from natural origins.

Opium, Morphine, Aspirin, Atropine, Ephedrine, Quinine, Emetine, Digoxin, Tubocurarine, Reserpine, Artemisin, Vinblastin, Menthol, Cocaine, Papain, Tetracycline, Salacylic Acid, Capsaicin, Senna, Cortisone….. The list goes on and on.

The fact that we can be healed by a plant is dangerous to these companies that would rather take the plant, synthesize it into a pill, and charge lots of money for something that could be grown at home.

N & S.

THC-free Cannabis is NOT marijuana, a drug. I believe its demonization comes from the confusion of the two. It [the former] has been recognized as a plant that is not only harmless but has healing properties, and, as such, it should be legalized for technical, nutritional, and medical use.

According to CARE2's own guidelines regards NOTING:
Vet the news in the "Newly Submitted" category by noting the news you like, or demoting news that's not relevant - vetting is your way to add your opinion on what news gets shown on Care2's news network. up to 10 times a day.

My inbox is full of your inane responses. More than 10, so you're engaging in pointless behavior. I gather you've not even bothered to sign OR share/reshare the petition, which is the whole point of being a member of CARE2.

The problem we've seen that I had at the moment, is that the signature isn't being recorded at the moment, specifically with regards to CARE2 petitions. I had signed and had to resign a few. As long as I share, which means a greater audience sees them (over 1,500 "friends" on social media), then the likelihood is that more will see and sign.
