study show long-term use will shrink your brain...in other words, you'll get dumb and dumber. Doobage-head is what a doobage-head does.

Probably common sense should be your guide. Hitting yourself in the head with a stick can make you feel dizzy and weird, probably bad for you. Pot makes you slow and stupid while using, for most that isn't an improvement.

The same could be said for alcohol.

Yes your catching on alcohol isn't good for you either! I drink alcohol knowing full well it is harmful. I'm not brain damaged enough yet to try and prove its good for me.

Except marijuana does not cause brain damage and alcohol does. Personally I do not like alcohol, but I wouldn't tell somebody they shouldn't drink alcohol and I wouldn't say alcohol should be illegal. It is useful for some things, but I don't think we should be drinking it.

Have you ever heard of the endocannabinoid system? Our bodies naturally produce cannabinoids, and THC is no different than anandamide which is naturally found in the body. The "high" is simply the result of your cb1 and cb2 receptors being activated.

Alcohol slows down brain functions and causes your brain to release dopamine. This causes the happy feeling you get and also the impairment that comes with it.

Nope never heard of it, sounds kinda made up by someone trying to validate marijuana. Alcohol is worse for you I will agree but to pretend either is good for you is laughable.

i remember almost 20 years ago i came up with a theorem that while greeneries may kill your brain cells, it still makes you sharper upon observation of subjects. It goes something like this (and this is in no way completely made up to validate the usage whatsoever):

Buffalo Theory: buffalo travel in herds and are only as fast as the slowest moving member of the herd. The slowest ones get hunted and leave the herd one by one---> the herd is now smaller but faster.

Let the dumb brain cells get killed off and become more creative, sharper, and become a genius!

Anybody remember RooR pieces? Mine were named John McEnRooR and RooR Jones Jr. Beat that.

I have made up similar therories about the bad cells being killed, in my liver, brain and wherever else I damage. Turns me into a superhero eventually.

opiods are good as well.....they are also great at removing body parts especially if you just inject into the same part consistently.

Liver works better with alcohol. There are things called speed-balls to speed up the process by 1000 fold. It isn't for the weak.

Here is an interesting article about that.

http://healthland.time.com/2012/10/2...w-brain-aging/

"The latest review, published in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, suggests that activating the brain’s cannabinoid system may trigger a sort of anti-oxidant cleanse, removing damaged cells and improving the efficiency of the mitochrondria, the energy source that powers cells, ultimately leading to a more robustly functioning brain."

dont know abt u but that sure sounds like some level of brain damage...

You can always rely on Government anti drug propaganda.
With all the value of anecdotal information: Myself and two friends smoked a bit when we were kids. I stopped while my two pals continued unabated to the present day.
They both have great memories - one even told me the other day the name of the Roxy Music song that was playing when I first asked a girl (who was later to become my wife) to dance in a club...me I had no clue....in fact I struggle to remember what day of the week it is.

Drugs were invented for diseases cure but people today are using them for fun. IMO almost every drug is good for health if used in moderate quantity. I am not saying from my personal experience. What other says i don't know.

Did you get high, then stumble upon this thread to post that?

Scientists at the University of East Anglia have shown how the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis could reduce tumor growth in cancer patients.

Research reveals the existence of previously unknown signaling platforms which are responsible for the drug’s success in shrinking tumors.

It is hoped that the findings could help develop a synthetic equivalent with anti-cancer properties.

The research was co-led with the Universidad Complutense de Madridin, Spain. The team used samples of human cancer cells to induce tumors in mice. They then targeted the tumors with doses of the cannabis compound THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). They found that two cell receptors in particular were responsible for the drug’s anti-tumor effects.

“THC, the major active component of marijuana, has anti-cancer properties. This compound is known to act through a specific family of cell receptors called cannabinoid receptors. However, it was unclear which of these receptors were responsible for the anti-tumor effects of THC," said Dr. Peter McCormick, from UEA’s school of Pharmacy. “We show that these effects are mediated via the joint interaction of CB2 and GPR55 - two members of the cannabinoid receptor family. Our findings help explain some of the well-known but still poorly understood effects of THC at low and high doses on tumor growth."

McCormick added: “There has been a great deal of interest in understanding the molecular mechanisms behind how marijuana, and specifically THC, influence cancer pathology. There has also been a drive in the pharmaceutical industry to create synthetic equivalents that might have anti-cancer properties. By identifying the receptors involved we have provided an important step towards the future development of therapeutics that can take advantage of the interactions we have discovered to reduce tumor growth.”

McCormick also said that cancer sufferers should not be tempted to self-medicate.

“Our research uses an isolated chemical compound and using the correct concentration is vital. Cancer patients should not use cannabis to self-medicate, but I hope that our research will lead to a safe synthetic equivalent being available in the future," he said.

The study, "Targeting CB2 –GPR55 receptor heteromers modulates cancer cell signaling," is published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.
