Marijuana Found to Possibly Prevent Alzheimer’s

I seem to recall, from my younger days, that pot made one a tad forgetful.  Who am I to argue with science?  Researchers in California found that THC, which is marijuana’s most active ingredient, prevents the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from breaking down better than prescription drugs.  I hear nicotine is also an Alzheimer’s preventative.

Other marijuana uses involves relieving glaucoma and can help reduce side effects from cancer and AIDS treatments.

New research shows that the active ingredient in marijuana may prevent the progression of the disease by preserving levels of an important neurotransmitter that allows the brain to function. – From CNN.

  1. It is sad when addicts are bullied/forced to use illicit narcotics such as heroin. Those who do not use medicinal marijuana need to understand that it is a valid remedy for a number of ailments such as Bi-Polar,MS,Chemotherapy. The list of benefits could fill up pages, yet the government continues to brainwash us and put medicinal marijuana in the same category as drugs such as heroin,crack,methamphetamine,etc. People need to understand the benefits and need to stick up for their medicinal rights.
