California: First Cannabis Sanctuary State?

Will California become the first Cannabis Sanctuary State?

California Assembly Bill 1578 will do just that.  Similar to Immigration Sanctuary cities like San Francisco and New York, which have passed legislation protecting immigrants from Federal agents seeking to round up and deport illegal aliens, this bill would do the same for marijuana growers and consumers.

German researchers evaluated the impact of dronabinol on leukemia cells. Investigators reported that synthetic THC displayed “remarkable anti-proliferative as well as pro-apoptopic efficacy … in a broad spectrum of acute leukemia cell lines.” These findings “provide a promising rationale for the clinical use of cannabinoids … in distinct entities of acute leukemia,” they concluded.

Preclinical data dating back over four decades has consistently documented the… Continue reading

We Don’t Know, But It’s a Question Worth Asking.” Dr. Mikovits, whose long and distinguished career in immune dysfunction and retrovirology said, “Given the potential to mitigate human suffering and lost potential, not only is cannabis as a cure for autism a question worth asking, it is criminal not to do so.” Continue reading
