our first article of disscusion will be the "Dr. Gabriel Nahas" studys
   
these studys were done in the early 1930's

Dr. Gabriel Nahas was hired by the government to prepare a set of "scare tactics" to disperse upon the nation.he had one objective to terminate and destroy the existance of cannabis. His conditions were so unscientific,baised,illogical, and meaningless he was fired from his job at National Institute of Health and in 1955 they called a press conference to completely dissassociate themselves from Nahas and his pointless experiments

experement
for this experiment gas masks were placed on the monkeys for five minutes which they were only permitted to breathe in the smoke of more than two severely chronic users would inhale in a lifetime! the animals died from asphexiation which they learned they also had brain damage because asphexiation of course deprives the brain of oxygen which leads to brain damage these conditions would have  been exactly the same if the experiment was done with burning wood

ARTICLE 2

the second article is regarding proof that marijuana increases brain cell growth

     Dr. Juanita King -Memorial University of Newfoundland

A recent study in the Journal of Clinical
Investigation suggests that smoking pot can make the brain grow.

Though most drugs inhibit the growth of new brain cells, injections of a synthetic cannibinoid have had the opposite effect in mice in a study performed at the University of Saskatchewan. Research on how drugs affect the brain has been critical to addiction treatment, particularly research on the hippocampus. The hippocampus is an area of the brain essential to memory formation. It is unusual because it grows new neurons over a person's lifetime. Researchers believe these new cells help to improve memory and fight depression and mood disorders. Many drugs -— heroin, cocaine, and the more common alcohol and nicotine — inhibit the growth of these new cells. It was thought that
marijuana did the same thing, but this new research suggests otherwise. Neuropsychiatrist Xia Zhang and a team of researchers study how marijuana-like drugs — known collectively as cannabinoids — act on the brain.

The team tested the effects of HU-210, a potent synthetic cannabinoid similar to a group of compounds found in marijuana. The synthetic
version is about 100 times as powerful as THC, the high-inducing compound loved by recreational users. The researchers found that rats treated with HU-210 on a regular basis showed neurogenesis — the growth of new brain cells in the hippocampus. A current hypothesis suggests depression may be
triggered when the hippocampus grows insufficient numbers of new brain cells. If true, HU-210 could offer a treatment for such mood
disorders by stimulating this growth. Whether this is true for all cannabinoids remains unclear, as HU-210 is only one of many and the HU-210 in the study is highly purified. But it is still chemically similar to THC very close in fact baisically the only difference is HU-210 is stronger but it has the same effects

"Occasional light use probably does not have very serious
consequences. [But] there is some evidence that marijuana smoke might
cause cancer."

Still, the positive aspects of marijuana are becoming more plentiful
as further research is done. McKim says it's not surprising that THC
and compounds like it could have medicinal effects.

 

"Many have been identified," he said. "It stimulates appetite in
people with AIDS, it is an analgesic, and blocks nausea in cancer
patients undergoing chemotherapy. And it treats the symptoms of
glaucoma."

ARTICLE 3

Research at UCLA shows that while smoking marijuana damages cells in respiratory tissue but somehow it prevents the cells from becoming malignant. Something in Marijuana exerts an anti-cancer effect, reports UCLA Medical School professor Donald Tashkin. Tashkin’s team interviewed 1,210 cancer patients and found that increased marijuana use did not increase cancer, where as smoking tabacco clearly was related to cancer. Tashkin found that even the very heavy marijuana smokers showed no increased incidence of the three cancers studied.  Although no association between marijuana and cancer was found, the study findings, presented to the American Thoracic Society International Conference this week, did find 20-fold increase in lung cancer among people who smoked two or more packs of cigarettes a day. Other important findings from this study are that THC has been shown to promote apoptosis and to counter angiogenesis.
