During hearings on marijuana law in the 1930’s, they made claims about marijuana’s ability to cause men of color to become violent and solicit sex from white women. This imagery became the backdrop for the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 which effectively banned its use and sales.
However, with so much information coming out about the medical value of marijuana and that marijuana is not as dangerous as alcohol, National Cancer Institute took the initiative of finding out whether marijuana does have medical properties in it.
However, it’s downright comical how the government doesn’t bat an eyelid to the more severe mishappenings in the society but find it absolutely justifiable to lock marijuana growers and buyers for cheap labors and locking them up. This destroyed a lot of families.
Marijuana is still illegal in many countries in-spite of not falling under the SCHEDULE 1 rating. Schedule 1 includes drugs which are dangerous, addictive and don’t hold any medical merit. Under NCI (national cancer institute) cannabis, cannabis decrease the hurtful side-effects of chemo and also as a drug to enhance chemo.
Other than this, there have been cases all around the world where they use cannabis to treat and cure cancer. In spite of all this, the government and media yet disagree on bringing the reality to light.
NCI On Marijuana And Its Anti-Tumour Activity
Experiments were conducted on mice and rats which showed that cannabinoids help in resisting inflammation of the colon and may help in reduction of colon cancer-causing cells. It was also helpful in preventing the growth of blood vessels which would help a tumor grow. Study of cannabidiol also showed the death of cancer cells which have a very little effect on normal breast cells. It also showed that cannabinoids helped in lessening the growth of cancer cells and also prevented it from studying.
Increasing The Appetite Of Cancer Patient:

Cannabis For Pain Relief:
Molecules that bind cannabinoid are called cannabinoid receptors have been studied for anti-inflammatory tests. They help relieve the pain of spinal cord, brain and nerve endings.
It is funny how our government runs. Maybe its priorities aren’t in place. What else can we say when the government approves the circulation of Oxycontin in our society. Oxycontin is an extremely addictive drug which gives to 11-year-old kids for a painkiller.
