Medical Marijuana in America: The Map

Washington, D.C.: NORML has updated its homepage's medical cannabis section, including a newly designed national map of medical marijuana states to reflect the recent surge in states that have passed so-called 'CBD-only' legislation.

Currently in the United States, 35 states have reformed their laws via legislation or binding voter ballot initiative to allow qualified patients medical access to cannabis products. This time last year, 21 states and the District of Columbia had medical cannabis laws on the books--a sixty percent increase in a single year.

Study: Cannabinoids Can Cause Cancer Cells to Burst

August 2, 2014, A new study published last week by the journal Biochemical Pharmacology, and published online by the National Institute of Health, has found that cannabinoids can increase a cancer cell’s susceptibility to cytolysis, which occurs when a cell bursts due to an imbalance.

“Cannabinoids have been shown to promote the expression of the intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (ICAM-1) on lung cancer cells as part of their anti-invasive and antimetastatic action”, says Burkhard Hinz, the study’s lead author. “Using lung cancer cell lines (A549, H460) and metastatic cells derived from a lung cancer patient, the present study addressed the impact of cannabinoid-induced ICAM-1 on cancer cell adhesion to lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and LAK cell-mediated cytotoxicity.”

For 29 years I didn’t know I had been born with a hole in my heart…   I had been smoking cannabis for 11 years when they found the problem. They rushed me to surgery to correct the defect.
