This documentary is filled with great information for those people who are just learning about cannabis
“Using original and archival footage,”WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” presents highly convincing evidence that this forbidden herb has healing properties beyond any other plant on the planet— interacting as it does with the body’s own “endocannabinoid system” to keep us fit and disease-free. “WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the “endocannabinoids” inside us—along with any cannabinoids we ingest—fit together like a key in a lock, thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body’s healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis—and perhaps even the future of medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor, PETER COYOTE.
FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST “I recommend an excellent documentary film, ‘WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER,” by Len Richmond, which summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for cancer prevention and treatment.”- ANDREW WEIL, M.D.”
A possible one hundred and six billion dollars of new tax revenue could be generated as well as one million new jobs created by 2025 if cannabis is legalized across all 50 states of America, That’s according to new data published in New Frontier’s latest research paper on the issue, which you can get here https://newfrontierdata.com/product/us-economy-2018/
“Under the new business tax rate of 21 percent, the Trump tax cuts will come as welcome relief to cannabis business owners who already face tax hurdles because of 280E. Lower tax rates may provide cannabis business owners greater capacity to grow and create more jobs. New Frontier Data projects increased domestic and international expansion of new legal cannabis markets and $106 billion in tax revenue over an eight-year period in the U.S.,” said New Frontier Data CEO Giadha Aguirre De Carcer.
This report examines three aspects of what full legalization would look like in contrast to the current, state-by-state patchwork of legalized environments, and the anticipated impacts which full nationwide legalization would hold for the U.S. Treasury.
If full legalization occurred in all 50 states today, there would be an excess of 654,000 jobs, and would increase to 1 million jobs by 2025.
Full legalization would result in more legal businesses entering the market, more consumers participating in the legal market, and more employees on official payrolls, resulting in $3.3 billion in payroll taxes. By 2025, payroll deductions would increase to $5.3 billion.
Assuming a sales tax at the federal level was implemented at 15%, the total tax revenues from 2017–2025 would theoretically be $46 billion. This amount of revenue would be entirely new revenue to the U.S. Treasury, as there are currently no federal sales or excise taxes.
By combining the business tax revenues, the payroll withholdings based on the theoretical employment required to support the industry, and the 15% retail sales tax, one can calculate the total federal tax revenue potential of legalization: The combined total is estimated to be $105.6 billion.
The difference between the current structure and the theoretical model is a $61.6 billion increase in federal tax revenues.

In case you’ve missed it, cannabis has been touted as a cure for cancer for a long time now, but only in recent years have the general public began to take this information on board and investigate for themselves. Governments don’t like the use of this language that makes such claims about cannabis. Cancer is one of the biggest industries in the world so cannabis is a direct threat to the big pharmaceutical companies’ profit margins. Here are over 100 studies that confirm cannabis as a powerful medicine against cancer…

The kidneys are two essential organs in the human body that are responsible for filtering excess and waste fluids from your blood which is then excreted as urine. The polycystic disease occurs when non-cancerous cysts form and grow in your kidneys. The sizes of the cysts vary from small to large. Scientists who have studied the disease validate that cysts grow out of nephrons and continue to replicate in number.
Abdominal pain, excessive urination at night, spots of blood in urine, backaches, headaches, joint pains, sharp pains between the hips and ribs all may signal an alert for the polycystic kidney disease. This occurs when your kidneys enlarge in size.
Over the years, cannabis often known as marijuana has largely been abused as a street drug. None the less, the hemp oil has a healing ability. This medicinal oil is an extract of the cannabis plant and has proven a very a curative productive to even cancer patients.
An Illinois dispensary has been opened for the purpose of serving medical marijuana to patients with specific ailments. The licensing of this clinic gives them the right to administer legal medical marijuana. Illinois cannabis can only be used around Illinois and is only restricted to medicinal use as per the rules and regulations. Medicinal cannabis has been influential in the treatment of various diseases including cancer. Even where the cannabis doesn’t quite much heal, it eases the pain significantly
Children with high and medium academic ability at age 11 are more likely to use cannabis in late adolescence compared to children with low academic ability, according to a new study published in BMJ Open.
The researchers, from University College London, examined the school records of more than 6,000 children. Their analysis showed that children of medium academic ability at age 11 were more likely to go on to be either occasional or persistent users of cannabis than children of low academic ability. This was the case for both early adolescence (13 to 17 years of age) and in late adolescence (18 to 20 years of age).
For children with high academic ability at age 11, the results were less certain. Although they were more likely than the low ability children to use cannabis in early adolescence, the difference between the two groups was not statistically significant. In other words the association could have been down to chance. However, for the period between 18 and 20 years, the high ability group was significantly more likely to be either occasional or persistent users of cannabis than the low ability group.
Previous research has found a clear link between academic ability and intelligence, so the evidence suggests that smarter kids are more likely to smoke cannabis than their less gifted peers. The big question is: why?
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has announced the launch of a Multidisciplinary Center on Cannabinoid Research. The new Center will serve as one of the world’s leading institutes for conducting and coordinating research about cannabinoids, endocannabinoids and medical cannabis. In addition, it will promote collaboration and disseminate information.
Staffed by some of the world’s leading scientists and medical doctors from the Hebrew University and its affiliated Hadassah Medical Center, the Multidisciplinary Center is already supporting exciting new research. In February 2017, the Center awarded funding to three research projects:
—The effects of CBD on traumatic brain injury (Prof. Rami Yaka & Prof. Oren Ostresetzer)
—The anti-angiogenic and anti-cancer activity of cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2) agonists (Dr. Ofra Benny)
—Effect of a Cannabis extract on acute radicular pain and on analgesics (Prof. Elyad Davidson)
“The establishment in Israel of the Multidisciplinary Center on Cannabinoid Research is of great relevance at this time since both academic institutions and pharmaceutical companies worldwide are channeling enormous efforts to basic and clinical research in this field,” said Dr. Joseph (Yossi) Tam, Director of the Hebrew University’s Multidisciplinary Center on Cannabinoid Research, and Head of the Obesity and Metabolism Laboratory at the Hebrew University’s Institute for Drug Research in the Faculty of Medicine.
If you weren’t aware of the Ancient Cannabis Theory then be prepared to be blown away by this presentation…
Chris Bennett takes a look at the fascinating references to cannabis, under the Hebrew name ‘kaneh bosm’ (spelling – qoph nun he’ – bet shim mem) in the Old Testament text that have been suggested by anthropologist Sula Benet and other researchers, with interviews from Prof Carl Ruck, Dr. Ethan Russo, David Hillman PhD., as well as drug historians and authors Chris Conrad, Michael Horowitz, Martin Lee, and Michael Aldrich. Included is a discussion of the linguistics behind the theory as well as a look at the references in context of the Biblical story line and the use of cannabis by the surrounding cultures who influenced the Jewish cosmology, such as the Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Canaanites and Scythians.
