dementia cure? – Chemical found in cannabis may REVERSE the ageing process
www.marajuananews.com
Olivia Lerche DEMENTIA is currently incurable - but scientists have revealed a chemical component of cannabis could boost memory in old mice. Experts said the finding opens up a whole new avenue of future research into the disease. How to spot if someone is suffering from dementia Results published today suggest that THC, a chemical component of cannabis, could improve the learning capabilities of rodents. Experts have said the whole new chemical system, called the endocannabinoid system could be a ‘potential target for new avenues of research which could include illnesses like dementia’. Dementia is a set of symptoms which can include memory loss, difficulty problem solving, thinking and can lead to behavioural changes such as a change in temperament or mood but it can affect people in very different ways. Low doses of THC were administered over a period of 28 days in young - two months old and mature - 12 months old and old 18 months old rodents. The researchers then tested the mice for their memory and learning skills and found that the older mice had their memory and learning abilities restored to similar levels to the younger mice. Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory They found that these changes appeared to affect the activity of certain genes in the hippocampus, an area of the brain important for memory and learning. However, there is as yet no evidence that THC would be able to work the same way in people. “This study shows that a component of cannabis, called THC, could have a beneficial effect on memory and learning in older mice,” said Dr Doug Brown, director of research at Alzheimer’s Society. “Though an interesting finding, the study does not shed light on the effect of THC on people with dementia, as it only looked at age-related memory decline in mice. “The study also does not reveal anything about the effect of cannabis on dementia, or memory problems in old age, as THC is only one of many chemicals that make up cannabis, and we don’t know what effects the other chemicals might have.“ Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Future dementia cure: Chemical component of cannabis could improve memory Early signs of dementia This new study investigates this in old mice showing signs of age-related worsening of memory function. Dr Michael Bloomfield, clinical lecturer in Psychiatry at University College London and the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, said: “This new, well-conducted study published in the respected journal Nature Medicine investigated the effects of low doses of one of the major active ingredient in cannabis, delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), on memory function and brain cells in mice. “It's been known for some time that regular high doses of THC during adolescence, a period when our brains are still developing, is potentially harmful for memory [...]

Top 5 Cannabis 420 Marijuana News Stories of the Week including Annie Dookhan on The Johno Show
www.marajuananews.com
Top 5 Cannabis News Stories of the Week including how chili peppers and weed can help your stomach to Pueblo County Colorado attempt at building a National Marijuana Museum to what happened at the Philly Smoke Session and finally to Annie Dookhan convicted of dry labbing test results. (18+) *LEGAL MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENT* In “Your Gut Needs Cannabis” News... Scientists trying to help people with irritable bowel syndrome, colitis and other stomach ailments are turning to an interesting combination of chili peppers and cannabis. They found that exposing immune cells to hot temperatures caused the cells to become highly activated. Meaning they went to work to protect the body very similar to how a fever can help immune cells work better. Surprisingly, immune cells exposed to chili pepper in a Petri dish behaved just like cells exposed to higher temperatures. To test this theory they gave mice capsaicin, which is found in chili peppers. That activated a special kind of cell that suppressed immune responses in the gut. In 1980, scientists discovered Anandamide when researchers were trying to make sense of why our body, especially the brain, has cannabinoid receptors. Scientists believe that nature didn't develop these receptors just so humans could get stoned. Anandamide is similar to the cannabinoids found in marijuana, but our body actually produces it naturally. The mice given capsaicin were shown to also have a stimulated production of anandamide, which helped heal their guts and suggests that other cannabinoids like marijuana might have a similar effect. In “Maybe social media isn’t the best place to promote that kind of thing” News... The underground party known as the "Philly Smoke Session" was busted by philadelphia police and 22 people were arrested at the event, 175 others were released without charge. The event was heavily promoted on social media as a Spring Fling. In addition to the arrests, police confiscated fifty pounds of marijuana and 100 pounds of THC-infused edibles, four handguns, and $50,000 in cash. Police say they also executed two search warrants on homes owned by the event coordinators where additional contraband was found. The following day, protesters stood outside police headquarters in support of the almost two dozen arrested. In “Her own husband called her a liar” News... The single largest dismissal of criminal convictions in U.S. history is taking place in Massachusetts as I speak. 24,000 drug convictions were tainted by a former state drug lab chemist who pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and falsifying tests. Annie Dookhan worked for Massachusetts law enforcement from 2003 until 2012. Dookhan pleaded guilty in 2013 to charges of obstruction of justice, perjury and tampering with evidence. She was sentenced to three years in prison and was paroled last year. Prosecutors said Dookhan admitted 'dry labbing,' or testing only a fraction of a batch of samples, then listing them all as positive for [...]

CBD oil helps autistic boy speak again
www.marajuananews.com
Tracey Watson At first, when Kalel Santiago of Puerto Rico survived a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma, his parents, Abiel and Gladys, were overjoyed that the two years of grueling surgery, radiation and chemotherapy treatments had worked, and their little boy was going to be okay. But while he was in the hospital, they started noticing some behavior that disturbed them, like hand flapping and walking on his toes; worst of all, he was totally unable to speak. At the age of 3, little Kalel was diagnosed with severe autism. Abiel and Gladys gave themselves a crash course on everything related to autism, and were fortunate enough to get Kalel accepted to a special surf-therapy school in their area, where their little boy thrived. Though settled happily in his new school, Kalel was still totally unable to speak. Then the Santiago family read about the potential of CBD oil in the treatment of autism and decided to try it. The CBD oil they purchased was derived from hemp oil, which is legal in the U.S. After giving Kalel the oral CBD spray twice a day for two days, the results were nothing short of miraculous: After years of never hearing their child utter a single word, they received a call from Kalel’s teacher asking what treatment they were trying, because Kalel had suddenly spoken at school that day! At first, he was only able to say the vowels, A, E, I, O and U, but to the parents’ joy, very quickly added consonants, full words and complete sentences, even telling his mother he loved her. “He’s been connecting — like he’s awakening to seeing the world,” said Abiel. “He’s looking you in your eyes, he’s been trying to say different things and imitate what we are saying. He’s saying ‘uncle’, ‘aunt,’ the names of my two kids. It’s something amazing that I cannot explain.” Anecdotal evidence like this can be found all over the Web, with thousands of parents confirming the miraculous healing ability of CBD oil derived both from hemp and marijuana in the treatment of their children’s debilitating health conditions. (RELATED: For the latest in mental health be sure to visit Psychiatry.news) In 2013, researchers from Stanford University’s Department of Neurology conducted a survey to explore the use of CBD-enriched marijuana in the treatment of children with severe epilepsy. All the parents involved in the survey were members of a Facebook group dedicated to sharing information regarding this treatment method for their children. Nineteen of the responses met the criteria for the study: An epilepsy diagnosis and treatment using CBD-enriched cannabis. The causes of epilepsy varied: 13 of the children had Dravet syndrome, four had Doose syndrome, one had Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and the final child had idiopathic epilepsy. Over 80 percent of the parents (16 of the 19) reported a reduction in how often their children had seizures when using the CBD-enriched marijuana. Two of the children completely stopped having s [...]

DEA JUST ADMITTED TO SELLING DRUGS ON STREETS
www.marajuananews.com
Youth ‘Informants’ Forced To Help The War on Drugs, carried out by the DEA, continues unabated since its establishment in the 1970s during the Nixon administration era. For years, countless arrests have occurred, many of them for victimless crimes involving cannabis. Large sentences are dealt, some carrying hefty jail times. Only this week, Canada unveiled their legislation to fully legalize cannabis, acknowledging the War on Drugs is fruitless. “We know that criminal prohibition has failed,” said former police chief turned MP Bill Blair. “Legalization seeks to regulate and restrict access to cannabis and will make Canada safer.” But cannabis isn’t the topic for debate. Blair summoned up what is pertinent to the War on Drugs across every nation: that it has failed. The hypocrisy that is the DEA’s refusal to acknowledge the medicinal benefits of cannabis cannot go unnoted; yet, more importantly, they have been caught red-handed, admitting tacitly during a House Judiciary Committee Hearing that the DEA sells drugs to people on the streets with the goal of catching “bigger fish.” The War on Drugs is perpetuated by the Drug Enforcement Agency who insists on locking people up for years at a time, for possession of what is still scheduled as a Class A substance, though now legal in many US states. In the first week of April, the DEA was questioned over whether they allow shipments of drugs into the community for the sake of making a bigger bust down the track. The Washington Post reported on the transcript between Louisiana Democratic Rep. Cedric L. Richmond asking the DEA’s appointed acting director Chuck Rosenberg on the issue: “RICHMOND: This committee held many hearings, and was furious about the Fast and Furious program. At least from my knowledge of DEA and other drug agencies, oftentimes part of a bigger sting is letting transactions and other things go through. Now, it’s a very specific question. In DEA’s past, present, future, any times do you let drugs hit communities to get the bigger fish? ROSENBERG: We’re not supposed to, no, sir. RICHMOND: Okay. Are you aware of any instances where it may happen? ROSENBERG: I’ll have to check and get back to you on that.” Although Rosenberg didn’t outright confirm it, he didn’t deny the allegation either. If he had, he would have perjured himself at the committee hearing. The Washington Post notes Rosenberg’s unwillingness to be forthcoming unsurprising as there is “considerable evidence that DEA does allow drugs to enter communities in the hopes of bringing down major players in drug dealing and distribution.” Eighteen months ago, the DEA was also criticized by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General for approving illegal activities of sources. “These inadequate DEA policies and procedures related to OIA greatly increase the risk to the DEA, the U.S. government, and the public from the involvement of DEA confidential sources in OIA,” the audit repo [...]

How to Get a Free Joint on 420 – Top 5 Cannabis Marijuana News  #trump420
www.marajuananews.com
How to Get a Free Joint on 420 - Top 5 Cannabis News. Hey Stoners Welcome to The Johno Show I’m your weedtuber host Jonathan. (18+) *LEGAL MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENT* Story Number 1: Back in 2015 Merriam-Webster Dictionary added more than a thousand new words to its online reference site and shockingly included the word Budtender. Now, just two years later and the Cannabis Culture’s influence on the world is apparent with words like “dabbing” and “Kush” being added to Dictionary.com this year. In “Looks like their ready and rarin’ to go” news... In a historic bipartisan move from the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee; a bill was approved making it legal to buy and sell marijuana in Texas. Two Republicans joined the committees three Democrats to give House Bill 2165 a 5-2 historic victory. This same committee voted 4-2 in favor of a bill to decriminalize marijuana just two days prior. Expectation that bill 2165 will survive to make it into law is extremely low. Just the fact it made it out of committee in Texas is unprecedented. If the bill does in fact move forward and becomes law it would make Texas the fifth state in the U.S. to legalize recreational marijuana. Even more surprising is that the bill is being lead by a deeply conservative, Tea Party-backed Republican; who wrote an op-ed piece last month explaining why his belief in God, distrust of government and criticism of the “War on Drugs” led him to sponsor the marijuana legalization bill. He says quote: “As a Christian, I recognize the innate goodness of everything God made and humanity’s charge to be stewards of the same, I don’t believe that when God made marijuana he made a mistake that government needs to fix.” Story Number 3: In another historic bipartisan effort both a Republican and Democrat from Florida introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives that would reclassify marijuana as a Schedule 3 drug. If the bill were to become law, the new classification would make it easier for people to obtain medical marijuana and easier for researchers to obtain cannabis for further study. Reclassifying marijuana to a schedule 3 would put it in the same group as anabolic steroids, Tylenol, and codeine. Story Number 4: Of the 54 million passengers who went through Denver International Airport in 2015, the T.S.A. stopped just 29 for possession of marijuana. In those cases, as long as the amount was legal for personal possession in Colorado — one ounce of dried flower, for example — the local police simply asked the flier to dispose of it, either by throwing it in the trash or taking it home. All 29 complied, and no tickets were issued. T.S.A. agents with dogs that are sniffing people in line by security checkpoints are looking for explosives, not marijuana. Dogs assisting Customs and Border Protection agents, however, are searching for illicit drugs along with other illegal substances, but only among passengers arriving in the United State [...]

Top 5 Cannabis News: TSA Changes Mind on Your Weed – Marijuana News on The Johno Show
www.marajuananews.com
Top 5 Cannabis News Stories including the TSA Changes Mind on Your Weed on The Johno Show. TSA security officers do not search for marijuana or other drugs. (18+) *LEGAL MEDICAL CANNABIS PATIENT* ENTER FOR A CHANCE TO WIN THE SUPERIOR 420 CONTEST: http://bit.ly/2oUrYhE In “Canadian’s Caught Doing The Right Thing” News... For the first time in North American history, Canadian supermarket chain Loblaw and Shoppers Drug Mart, announced that employee benefit plans would now include coverage for medical marijuana. The company employs nearly 200,000 people and represents the largest corporate acceptance of medical cannabis in North America. This is a major policy change and the first of many Canadian companies that will most likely follow in their footsteps. Last year, Loblaws president and executive chairman, said he could envision his company’s retail outlets dispensing medical marijuana in the near future. The majority of Canadians can’t get reimbursed for the cost of medical marijuana because insurance companies don’t cover it as standard practice. Yet!! In “ Do I look thinner to you” News… A new study, published in Archives of Osteoporosis, found regular cannabis consumers who partook more than five times per month had an on average lower body mass index (BMI), a measure of body fat based on height and weight, when compared to non-users. The researchers surveyed 4,743 participants nationally between the ages of 20 and 59 to investigate the relationship between cannabis use and various health outcomes. Previous studies have found cannabis use to be linked to a lower BMI, lower body fat percentage, and smaller waist circumference. Preclinical animal trials even suggest that cannabis can serve as protection against obesity. Researchers believe that cannabis protects against excess fat gain through its interaction with the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for managing metabolic function. A dysfunctional or overactive endocannabinoid system may contribute to fat accumulation and obesity, and cannabinoids may help keep the system operate properly. In “Yes, I’m Going to Cover This News Again Because It’s Important” News… On Tuesday of last week the Transportation Security Administration according to their “What Can I Bring?” web page had officially declared that flying with medical marijuana was okay. Then less than 24 hours later the TSA corrected themselves and switched the positive green checkmark to a negative red X. The incident has only added to the confusion surrounding whether marijuana users have anything to fear in bringing pot onto a plane. And thus have made some weed travelers extremely paranoid. While others including myself admit to nearly always traveling with pot. Now let’s break that down for a second, in case you're envisioning me traveling with 20 pounds of cannabis in my carry-on. No, I bring a vape pen or cookies or some other form aside from the flower itself. And remember here is the s [...]
