1. Marijuana treats diseases. 2. Marijuana helps kids
This is according to a couple of US patents on medical marijuana derivatives. Ain’t that a kick in the head?
1) Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia
That’s found here. Weed helps diseases from oxidizing stress (think of diseases caused by, for example, prolonged low-dose aspirin use, dementia and helps people at risk for stroke. Screw that idiot Kennedy at SAM. The government already has evidence to the contrary of that weirdo lifer Washington sylph nancy boy.

Keep reading, the patent claims it should be given to kids, up through adolescence.
Well, call me a book. Are you kidding me? There are accepted patents filed for this already? This whole “medical marijuana” debate is a farce. It’s bullshit. I’m not buying into it any longer. Legalize this plant today. I am so blown away I stopped checking on patents. I feel like I just saw two mountains of bullshit crumble to dust before my very eyes.
