    Default A good reason to smoke weed

    Marijuana may stave off Alzheimer's
    POSTED: 7:57 p.m. EDT, October 5, 2006

    WASHINGTON, (Reuters) -- Good news for aging hippies: Smoking pot may stave off Alzheimer's disease.

    New research shows that the active ingredient in marijuana may prevent the progression of the disease by preserving levels of an important neurotransmitter that allows the brain to function.

    Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in California found that marijuana's active ingredient, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, can prevent the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from breaking down more effectively than commercially marketed drugs.

    THC is also more effective at blocking clumps of protein that can inhibit memory and cognition in Alzheimer's patients, the researchers reported in the journal Molecular Pharmaceutics.

    The researchers said their discovery could lead to more effective drug treatment for Alzheimer's, the leading cause of dementia among the elderly.

    Those afflicted with Alzheimer's suffer from memory loss, impaired decision-making, and diminished language and movement skills. The ultimate cause of the disease is unknown, though it is believed to be hereditary.

    Marijuana is used to relieve glaucoma and can help reduce side effects from cancer and AIDS treatment.

    Possessing marijuana for recreational use is illegal in many parts of the world, including the United States, though some states allow possession for medical purposes.

    So... If I get Alzheimer's, I should be able to blame the court system for not allowing me to do so...

    Wait, lemme get this straight. If you smoke shit that makes you forget
    everything now, it will prevent you from forgetting everything in the future?

    See, what was I telling you guys about natural medicines just the other day.....

    It's insane that this plant, proven medically beneficial time and time again, is suppressed by the federal government, though the reasons are obvious.

    You can't patent a plant. God owns the copyrights, not Eli Lilly or Astro-Zombieco or whomever.

    Legalize hemp, in all of it's forms. For the fiber. For the oil. For the seeds. For the buds. Fuck the drug companies. Fuck the timber companies. Fuck the oil companies. And any other corporate assholes who disagree.

    And for the record, I haven't smoked it since 2000. So don't try dismissing this as the ranting of a stoned liberal hippie

    I've never even tried it, but I agree with everything on this post so far.

    It's all about the cash.

    And this is what we want other countries to have (our political system that allows money to rule, not always the greater good).

    You'll hate me for this, fasty...yet why don't you ever use my favorite FORD variant:
    Fucked
    Over
    Rebuilt
    Dodge?

    By the way, that's not meant as a shot to fasty or to FORD. Being a former owner of several Ford Motor Company products (along with a P.O.S. Dodge Neon) I simply find it funny and appropriate.

    Okay then, how about just a liberal hippie. Just kidding, Ford. I tend to agree with you most of the time and this is no exception.

    It's all about money. That's why they'll never ban cigarettes in the US. We know they kill people, but tobacco companies are such a huge chunk of the economy. Not to mention the business they create for hospitals, health care, etc.

    And, for the record, I smoke. Wish I'd never started.....

    Well..... not all the beer companies.......



    (Brewed in Northern California - great stuff!)

    Though it is true that the corporate breweries were in on the pot prohibition scam back in the 1930's.
