Interesting Facts

Using cannabis for cooking and for medicinal purposes has been around for centuries with the earliest recorded uses dating back to around 3000 BC during the Shen Nung era. He wrote that he prescribed it for beriberi, constipation, ‘female weakness,’ gout, malaria, rheumatism and absentmindedness." In 200 BC the Greeks used it to treat sore eyes. There have been many uses for cannabis over the many years of mankind. In 1619 in America it became law that you had to grow it on your farm and was legal tender until the early 1800s. In 1932 prohibition begins and almost all studies as a medication come to an end. In the past 10 years there have been many studies and they are beginning to learn that cannabis could be a very important part of treating many illnesses. Here are just a few:

• Migraines

• Slows tumor growth

• Helps to prevent Alzheimer’s

• Relieves symptoms of chronic disease

• Glaucoma

• Seizures

• Helps relieve pHs

They are also finding that it will help with aids patience, cancer patients and so much more. Currently marijuana activists are working for marijuana reform and fighting for medical marijuana laws. The U.S. National Institute of Health spent $1 million on medical research to investigate the therapeutic effects of synthetic chemicals that mimic the effects of smoking marijuana. At Temple University, research is also being done on synthetic marijuana. Meanwhile, the U.S. government, which supposedly has no interest in the medical marijuana race, has patented medical marijuana. US Patent 6630507 was assigned to the United States of America, as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services on October 7, 2003 and protects Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants. The Compassionate Investigational New Drug program, or Compassionate IND, is the Investigational New Drug program allowing a limited number of patients to use National Institute on Drug Abuse-provided medical marijuana grown at the University of Mississippi. There are five remaining patients in this program who receive 9 pounds a year on tax payer funded money. This program began in 1978 by a lawsuit brought against the FDA. In 1976, Randall who had glaucoma, had successfully used the Common Law doctrine of necessity to argue against charges of marijuana cultivation because it was deemed a medical necessity (U.S. v. Randall)

At this time of writing this book, there are thirteen states that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes and another eleven on their ballots for their states. In California in 2010 will be voting to legalize marijuana for recreational use with prop 219. In the polls there is an overwhelming support for legalization of marijuana. There are many pros and cons to this measure depending on what side you are on.
