Maybe some are getting sick of the marijuana threads running here of late. But I know the pro-marijuana faction won't be tired of me giving you a way to take easy action against the Feds marijuana policies which seem to be rooted in the 1930's. And help hurricane victims to boot. Marijuana Policy Project (www.mpp.org) is requesting that current Federal funds used to attack marijuana be used instead to help Hurricana Katrina victims. Let me quote JohnWott in a recent thread: "Some things never change". To take action, click on:

You are not going to change the marijuana policies anytime soon. Why? You have a conservative president, a growing Christian population, and drug companies that have their hand in congress. Maybe, when all the baby boomers are gone and we have a more liberal government, we will see a chance to change the laws of the land.

So, mule, I guess we should give up, hide in the closet, and not bother letting our voices be heard, then, eh, oh wise one?

Rob, I feel you. I agree with your idea. You are right that we should let our voices be heard. The more we knock at the front door, the more we get noticed. I was trying to say that our country is not in the best position to change Marijuana policies. Look who was just appointed to Chief Justice. Do you think he would every agree with the masses on marijuana policies. The newest nominee was Bush's attorney in Texas. She is a conservative that is very involved with the Christian movement in this country. If we get a liberal majority in congress, a liberal president, all the baby boomers are long gone, Christianity is less popular, and we get a few blacks on the supreme court, we will have chance at getting these laws changed. Until then, we do have bonnaroo and other small communities to freely live in.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I was sort of wondering about that comment.

OK, Mule, glad to hear you're with me. Problem is, I'm a Baby Boomer, so when they are gone, I'll be gone, and who will be there to lead the charge? I'm 50, and I never would've thought that my generation would end up so conservative.........boy, was I wrong. I often feel I fit in better with the younger crowd, and I'm sure I'll be one of the oldest at Vegoose in Vegas at the end of this month. Who cares? Those in their 20's and 30's don't seem to care.........they know I've got their attitude.

Rob, we need leaders that stand for the masses. Most of the leaders that represent liberal ideas have been made out to be threats to our country. Look at Ralph. People made him out to be a joke and threat, but if you listen to what he had to say you would see that he makes good points. Ralph had no money. If we could get some honest leaders with funds, we might get our foot in the doors of congress. The conservatives have all the money, control the government, and dictate our every action at work. I am not a baby boomer and I am no scholar of politics, but my mother is a baby boomer. We talked about how are government acts like a rubber band. It goes from one extreme to the other. Now we are pushing to a more conservative view. Hopefully after all the scare tactics are over our country can start to recover from governmentally abuse. With this in mind, I am now going to quit writing and go down to my favorite micro brew. Peace

In all seriousness writing to your government officals does Help.

Republican Governor Erlich of Maryland signed the Medical Marijuana Bill
and got my vote by saying he would support it during his campaign.
A lot of maryland democrats jumped ship over that issue.

He stood up to a lot of pressure from the White House to veto the
bill, because the people of maryland wrote him and he signed it.
His family has been touched by serious illness and he understands
the meaning of Christian compassion unlike others in his Political Party.


I have the lovely letter he sent back to me thanking me for my views.

The only way to overcome the big money lobbies is for the people to speak
out in a strong voice.

Peace
John

Study turns pot wisdom on head
Lab rats given drug 100 times as strong as pot By DAWN WALTON


Calgary Forget the stereotype about dopey potheads. It seems marijuana could be good for your brain.

While other studies have shown that periodic use of marijuana can cause memory loss and impair learning and a host of other health problems down the road, new research suggests the drug could have some benefits when administered regularly in a highly potent form.

Most "drugs of abuse" such as alcohol, heroin, cocaine and nicotine suppress growth of new brain cells. However, researchers found that cannabinoids promoted generation of new neurons in rats' hippocampuses.

Hippocampuses are the part of the brain responsible for learning and memory, and the study held true for either plant-derived or the synthetic version of cannabinoids.



"This is quite a surprise," said Xia Zhang, an associate professor with the Neuropsychiatry Research Unit at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.

"Chronic use of marijuana may actually improve learning memory when the new neurons in the hippocampus can mature in two or three months," he added.

The research by Dr. Zhang and a team of international researchers is to be published in the November issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, but their findings are on-line now.

The scientists also noticed that cannabinoids curbed depression and anxiety, which Dr. Zhang says, suggests a correlation between neurogenesis and mood swings. (Or, it at least partly explains the feelings of relaxation and euphoria of a pot-induced high.)

Other scientists have suggested that depression is triggered when too few new brain cells are created in the hippocampus. One researcher of neuropharmacology said he was "puzzled" by the findings.

As enthusiastic as Dr. Zhang is about the potential health benefits, he warns against running out for a toke in a bid to beef up brain power or calm nerves.

The team injected laboratory rats with a synthetic substance called HU-210, which is similar, but 100 times as potent as THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound responsible for giving marijuana users a high.

They found that the rats treated regularly with a high dose of HU-210 -- twice a day for 10 days -- showed growth of neurons in the hippocampus. The researchers don't know if pot, which isn't as pure as the lab-produced version, would have the same effect.

"There's a big gap between rats and humans," Dr. Zhang points out.

But there is a lot of interest -- and controversy -- around the use of cannabinoids to improve human health.

Cannabinoids, such as marijuana and hashish, have been used to address pain, nausea, vomiting, seizures caused by epilepsy, ischemic stroke, cerebral trauma, tumours, multiple sclerosis and a host of other maladies.

There are herbal cannabinoids, which come from the cannabis plant, and the bodies of humans and animals produce endogenous cannabinoids. The substance can also be designed in the lab.

Cannabinoids can trigger the body's two cannabinoid receptors, which control the activity of various cells in the body.

One receptor, known as CB1, is found primarily in the brain. The other receptor, CB2, was thought to be found only in the immune system.

However, in a separate study to be published today in the journal Science, a group of international researchers have located the CB2 receptor in the brain stems of rats, mice and ferrets.

The brain stem is responsible for basic body function such as breathing and the gastrointestinal tract. If stimulated in a certain way, CB2 could be harnessed to eliminate the nausea and vomiting associated with post-operative analgesics or cancer and AIDS treatments, according to the researchers.

"Ultimately, new therapies could be developed as a result of these findings," said Keith Sharkey, a gastrointestinal neuroscientist at the University of Calgary, lead author of the study.

(Scientists are trying to find ways to block CB1 as a way to decrease food cravings and limit dependence on tobacco.)

When asked whether his findings explain why some swear by pot as a way to avoid the queasy feeling of a hangover, Dr. Sharkey paused and replied: "It does not explain the effects of smoked or inhaled or ingested substances."

Don't worry. Once the tobacco companies are finally run in to the ground for killing millons, I'm sure their leaders will make sure the laws get changed! They have the equipment, AND they will have the great american incentive. TO MAKE TONS OF MONEY!!
