Little Known Facts in the Medical Marijuana Debate
Little Known Facts in the Medical Marijuana Debate:
The University of Mississippi has grown marijuana (including a placebo with virtually no THC) for the U.S. government since 1968. Each year the university grows 1.5 acres, 6.5 acres, or none, depending upon demand.
In every vote or poll on medical marijuana since 1975 that we could find, over 50% of respondents were Pro medical marijuana.
According to the U.S. government, marijuana alone has never caused an overdose death.
The British Lung Foundation reports that 3-4 marijuana cigarettes a day are as dangerous to the lungs as 20 or more tobacco cigarettes a day.
A UCLA study found no association between marijuana and lung cancer, and it suggested that marijuana may even have "some protective effect."
In 1978 the U.S. government started the Compassionate Investigational New Drug (IND) program , which supplies about 300 marijuana cigarettes per month to seriously ill patients approved for the program. The program was shut down in 1991, but seven of those patients (as of 7/31/06), continue to receive the free government marijuana.
Marijuana extracts were one of the top three most prescribed medicines in the United States each year from 1842 until the 1890s.
The 1999 U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, commissioned by the U.S. government, recommended that under certain narrow conditions marijuana should be medically available to some patients.
