According to the US Government and their official cannabis website, cannabis does kill cancer cells! The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, advises that ‘cannabinoids may be useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking it, eating it in baked products, drinking it in herbal teas and even spraying it under your tongue. The site also lists other uses: Anti-inflammatory activity, blocking cell growth preventing the growth of blood-vessels that supply tumours, anti-viral activity and relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis. Cannabis may even be able to shrink brain tumours! I don’t know about the US of A, but here in Britain, doctors have been prescribing cannabis to multiple sclerosis sufferers for years. So it’s an official vindication to all those people who have been promoting ‘cannabis good health’ for decades then! Now that cannabis has been largely decriminalised for personal use, for the US Government to be so open and forthright about the benefits of cannabis, it can only mean one thing! A US pharmaceutical giant must have secured a big fat government contract to supply medical-grade cannabis to hospitals across the country!
My advice is, enjoy a joint while you can! One day in the not to distant future, new research is bound to reverse the above finding, and cannabis will be made illegal again! Meanwhile, if the healthy and the unhealthy ingested the much maligned and promoted plant for breakfast, lunch, tea and supper, well, perhaps the world would be a calmer place in which to live?
