    Has anybody researched any information outside of the ACS?

    Google;cannabis cures cancer research=777,000 results,botanist and cannabis curing cancer=5,870,000 results,Raphael Mechoulam(professor of medicinal chemistry,Univ of jerusalem)researching chemicals in cannabis since 1964=65,900 results.L=leading researcher in cannabis cures=2,990,000 results. Hmmm...seems worth looking into. Interesting fact in video "what if cannabis cured cancer" a botanist claims that the cannabis plant develope some certin chemicals in it to protect itself from UV rays of the sun. Rise up and demand your natural medicine,do not wait for big pharma to put in pill form and claim they found a cure. Its right there in front of us. They have found ingesting the oils of the plant best,no "high" effect then.

    If people can have faith in God, they can have faith in his creations.
    Read Psalms 104:14-15.

    PEACE brothers and sisters,Iove you all.

      Google can be a friend and a nightmare when looking for information:

      Space aliens cure cancer 1,400,000 results

      You could be most helpful to people who are very tired and not feeling very well if you could go to the library and research to find the actual studies, and evidence on cannabis, as well as any specific results that have been achieved for various cancers. Tommy Chong, of Cheech & Chong fame, has cancer.

      It's one plant of many. I am 100% behind you as far as decriminalization of growing or using the plant. It's an amazing plant for other uses too. I just don't see any use for it towards the cancer we're dealing with, with the exception of pain management and appetite.

      Hate to burst your bubble my friend, but as an avid user and proponent of legalizing cannabis, its' use has NOT prevented me from contracting cancer by any means. Granted, it may increase appetite, may reduce nausea, and other symptoms of cancer and the treatments there of, it ABSOLUTELY does NOT prevent/stop nor "CURE" cancer. FYI, it's already used in pill form by some oncologists (even here in the U.S.) to treat "symptoms" of cancer, they used it with my sister-in-law and yes it did help with a "few" of her symptoms, but as far as a cure or treatment "for" cancer I'm afraid it's useless.

      I strongly believe that it is likely that cannabis can treat cancer. GBM in particular. Look at the research done by The SETH Group: http://thesethgroup.org/ Especialy look at this video of their research with THC and GBM brain tumor cells: http://thesethgroup.org/videos.html

      I contacted the head research at The SETH group and this is what he told me:

      "Unfortunately, we are still a few years away from testing our cannabinoid compounds in humans. In Canada and Europe, GW pharmaceuticals sells a formulated extract (Sativex) of THC/CBD in a 1:1 ratio that can be taking orally. At this point, there is no clinical evidence demonstrating cannabiniods/cannabis can slow cancer progression but the preclinical evidence does suggest the compounds could slow the progression of many types of cancer. Only THC has been tested for its ability to inhibit brain cancer in humans but it was just a safety study."

      The safety study he mentioned is the only study of the effects of THC on GBM brain tumor cells in humans. It was done in Madrid. The title of the study is "A pilot clinical study of D
      9-tetrahydrocannabinol in patients with recurrent glioblastoma multiforme" published in the British Journal of Cancer in 2006. Maybe you can find it online.

      There have also been studies on rats in Spain and I believe Israel that show that THC can totally shrink GBM brain tumor cells in rats.

      It's unfair that the US government does not allow researchers to do human or even animal studies of the anti-cancer effects of THC. I believe that THC shows great promise as a GBM treatment.
