      Marijuana May Fight Lung Tumors - CBS News

      Marijuana Cuts Lung Cancer Tumor Growth In Half, Study Shows

      ScienceDaily (Apr. 17, 2007) The active ingredient in marijuana cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread, say researchers at Harvard University who tested the chemical in both lab and mouse studies.

      Presumably this effect is nullified if you smoke it

      Seems like if the way to prevent a small fire from becoming a big fire had something to do with tha small fire, instead of simply preventing the fire in the first place.

      ^ I am so stoned, but I'm pretty sure that made sense.

      So what? I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to treat tumors with THC through other methods than smoking.

      The mice in the study did not smoke! haha.

      Anyway, there has been no reported deaths of anyone dying from cannabis whether they smoked it or not.

      Though smoking is hard on your respiratory system, there is no evidence that smoking cannabis causes any type of cancer.

      And of course, you can eat it, drink it, or vaporize it.

      Smoking cigarettes causes cancer. You can't really blame that on particulate matter when cigarettes contain the number of carcinogens they do. In terms of lung health impact you really can't compare cigarettes and cannabis.

      Either way, if you're not a fan of smoking, you just vaporize it. Still just as direct an application of the THC to the affected area as smoking.

      It's my understanding that smoking marijuana has never actually been convincingly linked to lung cancer.

      But no James, it is not 'literally the cure for cancer', don't be ridiculous. Plant extracts are use all the time to cure ailments (do you know what aspirin is?), if it were true then there would be scientific evidence and somebody would be out there making a killing from this gigantic gap in the market.

      Please explain how someone would make a killing from the gigantic gap in the market.

      Well if you had the cure to cancer, I imagine it would be fairly easy to profit off of.

      Except with cannabis. It's a plant you can grow in your house. How can a company profit off a medicine individuals can produce on their own?

      You cannot put a patent on a plant.

      You can extract THC oil from hemp, distil it and administer it directly into cancerous tumors on your own? Nice.

      "The penicillin made from this experiment should not be used unless it is a survival situation. It is possible for other, toxic molds to grow along with the penicillin, even if you know what you are doing. It is also possible for mold inhibitors to grow, stopping the growth of the penicillin spores."

      You can extract THC oil from hemp on your own, and eat it.

      It can also be applied topically for skin conditions such as moles, warts, tumors, and diabetic lesions.

      Is eating the oil as effective as directly injecting it into tumors?

      Nobody actually buys aspirin. We all grow willow saplings.

      WakingNomad, just get real. The best thing that can be said about your fantasy is that it is altruistic; it is still, however, a fantasy.

      As for drug companies' profitability is concerned, it's still in their best interest to keep cannabis off the market. They don't want a cure, what they want is an expensive long-term treatment that slowly kills the patient and that they have a near monopoly over. A one-time cure could cost a quarter of a million dollars, yes, but a patient that has to go through two years of $5k treatments twice monthly makes just about as much, plus all of the doctor fees, plus all of the drugs that treat the side-effects of the treatment, plus the medications that treat the side-effects of those drugs... you get the picture.

      People will buy cannabis from people. Do you grow your own tobacco or brew your own beer, even when there are extremely prohibitive taxes on it? Most won't. Not everyone has the brains, space, and time to grow a damn aloe plant, much less their own weed. The issue is that there will be a thousand smaller companies competing for lower prices and higher quality instead of a single company with a patent and a pill press charging whatever the consumer will tolerate.

      Now, if a biotech company could engineer a gene that makes the plant produce a supermagical cannabinoid, and they could convince the FDA that only plants with this cannabinoid are safe and effective for medical treatment, then they'd have a monopoly over it.
      But, the FDA would have to recognize cannabis' usefulness before the DEA would let them research it, so the point is moot.
