Quit Wasting Taxpayer Cash on Faux Marijuana Medical Researches

marijuana headlines for a study


We remain in 2021, the world is moving towards legislating marijuana and the federal government still demands attempting to discourage individuals from consuming marijuana. In a current research study reported by CNN, discovered that marijuana users might have raised levels of “toxic substances” connected to cancer and other conditions– yet less than tobacco cigarette smokers.

A few of these chemicals can likewise be acquired by the simple act of consuming– however hey, now you understand that there are a little greater levels of specific toxic substances that according to the United States National Toxicology Program is, “fairly expected to be a human carcinogen” or a “likely human carcinogen” the American Cancer Association.

Simply put, these findings have to do with “prospective” carcinogens and the outcomes showed that marijuana users had “greater levels” than non-smokers did– however lower levels than tobacco cigarette smokers did.

What are they attempting to show?

Marijuana is not safe. Other than, everybody who smokes marijuana understands it’s not “safe” however rather understand that it is the “least hazardous” leisure compound. The concept that the federal government is still attempting to encourage individuals about the damages of marijuana is a waste of taxpayer cash.

No matter the findings from the federal government, the truth of the matter stays that marijuana will end up being legal within the next year or 2[in the U.S] I still stay unfaltering in my forecast that marijuana will be legislated on a Federal level in the U.S later on this year– they will require to with all the insaneness taking place in the federal government.

Nevertheless– it appears that Uncle Sam still isn’t able to distance itself from “Drug War Research study” patterns and still mainly funds research studies that take a look at the “hazardous results” of marijuana.

Why it’s time to move focus NOW!

Israel has actually been leading the world in marijuana research study. With Mexico just recently revealing its medical cannabis procedures and Canada greatly bought establishing brand-new items– the United States is falling back and with each passing day, permits possibly life-altering medications to be established in other nations.

Over the previous twenty years, the U.S federal government has actually invested 95% of the spending plan on marijuana research studies on attempting to find out its damages. Couple this with over 40-years of the very same method because the beginning of the Drug War in 1971.

With over 50-years of research study into the damages of marijuana, possibly it’s time to move a few of that towards finding the advantages of marijuana rather?

What the Research Study Found?

Now that we have actually described why it’s moronic to continue to attempt to turn marijuana into the devil– let’s take a better take a look at what the scientists discovered.

However prior to we do that, we likewise need to acknowledge that the sample group for this research study was 245-HIV favorable and HIV-Negative individuals– primarily due to the fact that this is a group related to raised marijuana and tobacco intake.

Naturally– this likewise instantly discount rates that this information is transferable to the basic population thinking about that a weakened body immune system would play some function in the processing of these toxic substances. However we’ll humor the scientists and publish their findings;

” Individuals are exposed to considerably more acrylamide from tobacco smoke than from food. Individuals who smoke have 3 to 5 times greater levels of acrylamide direct exposure markers in their blood than do non-smokers,” mentioned the National Cancer Institute.

This was a typical style I saw throughout the research study– a declaration discussing tobacco intake, then relating it to marijuana intake– yet not supplying any genuine substantial information on the distinctions in between the 2.

This makes me question whether the scientists were reluctant to make their findings understood because when you start to take a look at the information– you see these disparities throughout the text.

Naturally– scientists will declare this is initial which “more research study is required” however I believe that it’s time we have “more research study” on the prospective restorative results of marijuana. 50+ years of unfavorable and prejudiced research study is ample to develop a “damage profile”. Now it’s time to begin checking out the “restorative profile” and while there are great deals of prospective advantages– it isn’t till we individuals fund research studies that search for these.

This is among the greatest wastes of taxpayer cash – in truth, one might argue that it’s a rip-off and is anti-scientific to state the least. It puts in concern the whole body of research study not just from marijuana, however essentially every other clinical sector in society due to the fact that marijuana shows that Science in the U.S has political leanings– and this suggests that we can’t truly ever rely on federal government sources as being really neutral.

I for one hope that we can begin holding individuals responsible for these type of research studies and have more sway in where we invest our tax dollars in the U.S. It’s time that the federal government stops losing our money and time.
