    The administration of THC reduces the tumor growth of metastatic breast cancer and “might constitute a new therapeutic tool for the treatment” of cancerous tumors, according to preclinical data published online in the journal Molecular Cancer.

    Investigators from Complutense University in Madrid assessed the anti-tumor potential of THC and JWH-133, a non-psychotropic CB2 receptor-selective agonist, in the treatment of ErbB2-positive breast tumors – a highly aggressive form of breast cancer that is typically unresponsive to standard therapies.

    Researchers reported, “oth Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol … and JWH-133 …reduce tumor growth [and] tumor number [in mice]. … [T]hese results provide a strong preclinical evidence for the use of cannabinoid-based therapies for the management of ErbB2-positive breast cancer.”

    In 2007, investigators at the California Pacific Medical Center Research Institute reported that the administration of the nonpsychoactive cannabinoid CBD limited breast cancer metastasis in a manner that was superior to comparable synthesized agents.

    Previous preclinical studies assessing the anticancer properties of cannabinoids have shown that they inhibit the proliferation of a wide range of cancers, including brain cancer, prostate cancer, oral cancers, lung cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, biliary tract cancers, and lymphoma.

    I saw Reefer Madness" and cancer or no cancer, there's no way I'm fucking with that stuff.

    I can top that. i paid .25 cents to see reefer madness, in college, and the projector broke, and nobody seemed to notice.. (true story, after a half hour one guy shouted, "hey i paid good money for this !!")
    seriously... the untapped potential of this wonder herb is tremendous, way more than alchohol, which is actually a depressant.
    it's remarkably non toxic, which is more than we can say about some of the fda approved test drugs.


    although in rare cases when one small puff will cause you to dive out a window and become a serial killer...oh well

    you know and the thing is, is that drugs aren't for everybody.... just cause pot is legal doesn't me that you have to start smoking it.
    or taking any drug, but weed isn't strong enough to be a drug, it's more like coffee or tea and tobacco, actually less than tobacco.
    everybody on this board knows someone who smokes pot... are they psychotic ?... no
    the chinese have been smoking pot for thousands of years and we owe them more money then they owe us. we borrow... you decide
    ... and to the people who have never tried it.... curious?
