Marijuana useful in fighting lung cancer...

0_61_320x240_smoking_jointFor decades, stoners grasping at any thread of proof to try and find some sort of solid designation between themselves and the rest of the junkies and crackheads out there have gone on and on and on with anyone willing to listen about the magical healing power of marijuana.

Well, it turns out that burn boy might not have been just talkin’ out of his ass…

News Flash: Pot has been found to be useful in the fight against lung cancer.

phat-budsA recent cancer study out of Harvard University is claiming that the active ingredient in marijuana has been found to cut the tumor grown of the most common form of lung cancer in half  as well as significantly reducing the ability off the cancer to spread.

According to the report, Delta-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) [the stuff that gets you high] inhibits EGF-induced growth and migration in epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressing non-small cell lung cancer cell lines. Lung cancers that over-express EGFR are usually highly aggressive and resistant to chemotherapy.

Researchers feel that the THC (or designer alternatives) that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

Stoned is the way of the walk…

I’m sure by this point Birkenstocks are being kicked off all across the nation as celebratory drum circles are breaking out all over the horizon celebrating the proof they have been hoping for… proof positive that smoking marijuana is in some way being done for medicinal purposes and not because it makes the shittiness of the day to day more tolerable.

But hold on there Moonbeam…

To be honest with you, I’m actually of the opinion that perhaps the worst thing that could happen to the pot enthusiasts out there might be the fact that pot is of tremendous use in the fight against cancer… namely because as long as we have access to dirt, seed, and sun pot is relatively free (which is the worst thing anyone could ever say about a cancer curing medicine). Think Pfizer wants to just let the greatest medical discovery of the 21st century just spring up out of the ground for any and all to get their hands on for free?

Of course not…

And they going to want to figure out a way to alter it somehow so that the tumor grows smaller and sort of goes away but only so long as you keep taking the drug (the second you stop, the tumor comes back more aggressively that it had originally).

Oh nothing good will come from the discovery of marijuana’s positive effects…

Mark my words… Nothing good.
