Drop in IQ linked to heavy teenage cannabis use

I'm definitively in the camp that marijuana should be legalized, since I don't think any type of prohibition works, except for making the dealers or corrupt officials richer, and tempting kids even further. But i'm also in favor of education. And…Continue

To me, as a herbalist,marijuana is a medicine proven through the ages. It is has healing, culinary and cultural uses.

In regard to this study, as to the adverse effect if SMOKED preadolescent.

 Any plant should not be smoked except under qualified supervision.

That said, how many kids are permanently mentally damaged by  alcohol?

Another factor elates to our so called "Medical research".

It has degenerated to such a degree that one must question every aspect of any paper. Who wrote it? who benefits?  What industry commissioned , government or lobby the study?

Are the citations from the "peer group identities real or marketing company sponsored or made up personas?

 For further information I refer you to THE worlds leading medical researcher. His reputation is beyond reproach .https://profiles.stanford.edu/john-ioannidis

John Ioannidis also has numerous youtube

No difference, neither have THC. Cannabis oil does have THC.

What is the difference between hemp CBD oil and cannabus CBD oil?

If medical  Cannabis/Marijuana is legal in the state your reside then shouldn't it be tax deductable from state taxes as a medical expence - the same as other pharmicuticals?

http://www.alternet.org/drugs/10-benefits-medical-marijuanaAlternetCancer is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. resulting in at least 584,881 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Recent animal studies show that marijuana extracts can help kill certain cancer cells and even reduce the size of some of them. But, marijuana is still illegal in several states. The number of people who’ve died due to an overdose of marijuana? None.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse describes medical marijuana as “using the whole unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat a disease or symptom.” The Food and Drug Administration has, however, neither approved nor recognized the drug as medicine. So far, 25 states have approved the usage of medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana is available in a variety of forms. It can be smoked, vaporized, consumed as a pill or can be added to brownies, cookies and chocolate bars. Here are some of the benefits of using the drug as medicine.

The Hemp for Victory clip isn't very complete. Farmers who signed up for the program and grew hemp with male children of draft (into the military) age were exempt from the military because hemp was important for the war effort.

https://www.sacredherbmedicinals.com/

Welcome to a line of products based off our ever popular pain stick. Derived from ancient eastern medicine and a modern wonder recently returned to the masses from exile, cannabis.

Harnessing the anti-inflammatory properties of decarboxylated cannabis, and made from a blend of fifteen different herbs, essential oils, waxes and butters, our products are infused from all natural ingredients into natural oils. No concentrates are used in making our products. Our products are all handmade and hand packaged. Available in a variety of application methods so you can tailor your pain relief needs to fit your lifestyle. 

Our roll on oil is the base oil in our other products and is the most potent. The lotion is the easiest to apply on arthritic hands and is good for use on large areas. Our handy pain stick and lip balms are life tested and melt on your skin and not in your pocket. The soaking salts are popular for M.S. and Fibromyalgia for those who need whole body relief. Take a look in our store for even more great products.

If cannabus were taken off the list of the DEA list of schedule 1 drugs perhaps medicine that was benificial to patients could be studied and made available.
