It was touted as a miracle pill: a narcotic pain reliever that could change the lives of people suffering from chronic pain, but with little, so its maker claimed, and thousands of doctors believed risk of addiction.
Since OxyContin was introduced in 1996, Canada has recorded the second-highest number of prescription opioid painkiller addictions -- and the world's second-highest death rate from overdoses.
So why publish this on a website seamingly used to advocate the benefits medical cannabis?

In this 10 minute video above, you can learn about some of this medical research on cannabis conducted at the University of California in San Diego. You can also hear how cannabis helped one woman become seizure free when all other drugs failed.
When PBS interviewed a doctor who is against cannabis, his main complaint was that marijuana was not tested and approved by the FDA. He correctly observed that the natural herb contains more than 60 active components that have never been tested in isolation, which is how drugs are produced and patented. - See more at: http://www.calgarycmmc.com/cannabispatents.htm
Cannabis For Infant's Brain Tumor a Succ...

Medical marijuana is gaining acceptance, but could it even help kids? Dr. William Courtney has seen it happen, in an interview, told HuffPost Live host Alyona Minkovski about it. Saying he was "quite a skeptic 5 or 6 years ago", Dr. Courtney continued that "my youngest patient is 8 months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor."
The child's father pushed for non-traditional treatment utilizing cannabis. "They were putting cannabinoid oil on the baby's pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose... And within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy." The tumor was remarkably reduced after eight months of treatment.
Dr. Courtney pointed out that the success of the cannabis approach means that "this child, because of that, is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation... currently the child's being called a miracle baby, and I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is frontline therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects."...full article here
Marijuana Dispensaries To Display Warnin...

Lawmakers will continue to debate a proposal that would require retail pot shops and medical marijuana dispensaries to post a warning to pregnant women about the potential risks of marijuana.
source: CBS, Denver
The bill is in its third and final reading in the the state House before it heads to the Senate.
An earlier version of the bill was rejected amid disagreement over how to describe the risk marijuana poses to unborn and nursing children. The version approved Monday directs state health authorities to come up with warnings. The exact language of the signs hasn’t been determined.
The bill had bipartisan support but some opposition. Some wondered whether the requirement would violate the voters’ direction to regulate marijuana like alcohol. Although liquor products must include warnings for pregnant women, liquor stores aren’t required to post warnings in Colorado.

In a greenhouse in the mountains of the Galilee, a technician in a lab coat is coddling a marijuana seedling that is coveted for life-saving medical benefits for epileptic children, doctors say ? without the high. Named 'Rafael', for a healing angel called upon by Moses, this varietal of cannabis is for people who don't want to be under the influence, and it is available in oral doses in Israel. Israel has become a world leader in science on the medical uses of marijuana, and its producers could become major exporters of medical cannabis, experts say.
But so far the government has allowed them to export only their knowledge, not the actual product.
Interesting work they're doing, and potentially quite valuable. It's interesting that the Drug War stigma associated with marijuana is enough to prevent Jerusalem from allowing exports of stuff which won't get anyone high, but will give chemo patients their appetites back.
This is doubly strange for Israel, which has made itself quite rich on high-tech exports. Once again, government moves much more slowly than the private sector.

Dr. Robert Melamede http://www.cannabisscience.com Did you know that the human body is built out of cannabinoids? Endocannabinoids that is, the cannabinoid from within. They regulate the structure of everything within the human body including the mind, particularly open mindedness. Some people are cannabinoid deficient which makes them less likely to adapt and change with the times, so naturally they tend to spend the majority of their time avoiding challenging situations and changing the world for the better, this makes them ideal politicians. The world is split between these cannabinoid deficient BLPS (Backward Looking People) and FLPS (forward looking people) which one are you?

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, joined Dr. Staci Gruber, Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, for a discussion on medical marijuana. Gupta spoke of his experience studying the effects of medical marijuana and recounting stories of patients using the substance for its health benefits. Gupta described how his opinion has changed on the subject as a result of these encounters and the growing evidence to suggest its potential ability to treat neurological problems. Gupta and Gruber also spoke to the concern of giving medical marijuana to children and whether there are lasting negative effects of marijuana usage, both medical and recreational in adolescents under the age of sixteen.
