Federal Report: Marijuana Effectively Treats Breast and Lung Cancer

8

Marijuana has medicinal benefits. That’s a fact. But the scope of these benefits, along with cannabis’ alleged “negative side affects” is  a contentious and highly debated subject. After clear cut evidence that weed can legitimately treat breast and lung cancer–along with showing zero damage to the lungs–well, the “stoners” win again.

In a recent report, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), part of the Federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), stated that marijuana “inhibited the survival of both estrogen receptor–positive and estrogen receptor–negative breast cancer cell lines.” The same report showed marijuana slows or stops the growth of certain lung cancer cells and suggested that marijuana may provide “risk reduction and treatment of colorectal cancer.”

Referring to the NCI report, Patient Rights attorney Matthew Pappas said, “The Federal government’s continuing attack on people prescribed medical cannabis by their doctors is hypocritical considering the benefits reported by its own National Cancer Institute.” Pappas represents patients in defending their right to reasonably obtain medical marijuana. The patients contend the Federal government and various municipalities are trying to prevent them from obtaining cannabis for medical purposes in direct contravention of state laws. “Cities that ban dispensaries are denying patients the ability to obtain a medicine the Federal government’s National Institutes of Health says fights cancer and they’re doing it with the Obama Administration’s help.” Recently, the City of Los Angeles repealed its ban of medical marijuana collectives after Bill Rosendahl, a member of its city council diagnosed with cancer and prescribed medical marijuana said to fellow council members about the ban, “You want to kill me? You want to throw me under the bus?” 

The NCI report also examined whether patients who smoke marijuana rather than ingesting it orally are exposed to a higher risk of lung and certain digestive system cancers. According to the government, 19 studies “failed to demonstrate statistically significant associations between marijuana inhalation and lung cancer.” The report also identified a separate study of 611 lung cancer patients that showed marijuana was “not associated with an increased risk of lung cancer or other upper aerodigestive tract cancers and found no positive associations with any cancer type.” In the area of prostate cancer, the NCI report was inconclusive and suggested further research was necessary. In its report, the National Cancer Institute also identified a “study of intratumoral injection of delta-9-THC in patients with recurrent glioblastoma” that showed tumor reduction in the test participants. [NBC News]

The federal government reported this incredible news. Marijuana remains federally illegal. That is not kosher.

    I went through the “standard” treatment for prostate cancer. In November of ’05, I had my prostate removed. The doctor at Kaiser that did my biopsy was so aggressive that he collapsed my prostate with excessive pressure and planted the cancer into the lining surrounding it. I had to undergo radiation treatments in ’08 to eliminate it. If I had only known about how marijuana oil could have knocked out the cancer without surgery, I would be able to function as a man today. Think about it…would you like to have you manhood taken away? OF COURSE NOT!!! What kind of country is this that we have to be denied proper treatment because it represents competition for the medical industry? I AM SO PISSED!!! My life has been ripped apart because of these stupid laws against proper treatment. Where does it end? It won’t end until we voice our objections and say, I AM NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!!! Go to Phoenix House and check it out…and good luck with your surgery!!!

    Calcium from dairy products was associated with prostate cancer risk as well, but not calcium from other foods. In the researchers’ opinion, their results support the hypothesis that a high intake of protein or calcium from dairy products may increase the risk for prostate cancer.^::”
