  1. The speaker states 6% 12 year olds report "Daily use of cannabis"

    Highly unlikely! This herb is illegal and can be very difficult to get hold of for grown ups let alone young kids!

    It's also very variable in quality mostly poor occasionally good

    This red headed woman states effects of cannabis use which are just the propaganda pushed out by the CIA there is no evidence to support her emotive description of "adverse effects"

    She also claims it's addictive. No matter how many cannabis users tell her it is not addictive she will continue to say it is

    She has no idea what she is talking about in respect of multiple drug use

    Someone like me who is regular user for 20 years can talk to women like this till we are blue in the face, she will still think she knows more about it than I do and so refuse to take on board anything I have to say on the subject

    She needs psychiatric help really she is do screwed up

  2. My friends that have drank alcohol for 30 years have destroyed their livers and minds . I smoked pot every day for 30 and guess what ?
    I have a clean bill of health . I had full medical from two different doctors . I am a healthy man . I bike a 100 plus km a week. I treat women as equals . All the anti pot lies are drummed up by big pharma, alcohol , tobacco and religious freak nutjobs . Put that in your pipe and smoke .it and stay away from prozac ssris !

  3. I do not believe this is all of "The Current Evidence". There is a lot of research that comes to totally different conclusions.
    Also, it's obvious they're trying to introduce an "improved" GMO version of Cannabis, without the mind-expanding functions.

  4. This is disinformation.
    Your not supposed to smoke cannibis. Your supposed to cook it in foods, make oil out of it and use it in teas.
    Cannibis( i.e. marijuana coined by Harry Anslinger and Randolph Hearst) will cure any dis-ease and this is why the oligarchs and their dogs banned it.
    As a Native American. My people cooked and ate tobacco and cannibis.
    This is why the oligarchs and their dogs= Harry Anslinger and Randolph Hearst.
    During the 1800-1900’s and today. There were many tests done on indigenous people of America. Anglo Saxons thought that American Indians and black people had magical powers like rapid healing etc..
    What they found was that we ate thousands of pounds of hemp and cannibis and stayed healthy no matter what types of poisons they tested on my people. So they hired goons to out law cannibis today called,” marijuana.”
    Today cannibis will cure: all cancers, HIV, Autism, Herpes, all STD’s, mental illnesses etc…
    The art of critical thought is coming back but most people cannot see past hate and BS.
    How can you criminalize a plant?
    If that’s the case then tobacco, carrots, kale and all trees should be illegal.

    I don’t care what you about me. Just think for yourselves for a change.

    The creator doesn’t make mistakes with plants.

  5. the cannabis compounds (cannabinoids) have effects depending on what type compounds they are… the bio-chemical effects are noticed in the endocannabinoid system ECS as in bio-mimetic compounds… mostly metabolic action entails cannabis use and activation of cellular respiration… ligand channels are created on cell surfaces http://www.bionity.com/en/encyclopedia/G_protein-coupled_receptor.html in the presence of cannabinoids… ligand channels are used on cellular surfaces to signal information from inside the cell to the extracellular space – it's called homeostasis… the ECS maintains homeostasis and phytocannabinoids from the cannabis plant serve the same functioning in the ECS

  6. SHE LIES .. alcohol 🍷smokin 🚭poison 💀……..cannabis oil heals ,!!!!LOOK up RICK. SIMPSON …on cannabis oil the documentary called..run away from cure

  7. Psychosis is never sufficiently proven. While the definition of a psychosis is quite open for debate. I miss in this talk totally the relation with decreasing minerals in plant products, everywhere in the western world. Cannabis stimulates a lot of key processes in the body, I suggest that whole plant food, with sufficient nutrients is essential to support these processes. Eat no McFiller, eat plant food, certainly when you use strong cannabis products.
    "More research" is just virtue signaling. Research is needed when quite often poisonous petro-chemical artificial molecules are medically applied. Cannabis is not poisonous. Why are these large clinically conducted studies not already started? A growing group of people is increasingly suspicious of this "more research" suggestion. Like it is a signal that you also belong to the group industry funded scientists..

  8. Someone in the video were talking about elephants, but the real elephant in the room is the concept of people not being allowed to chose what type of medicine they want to treat THEMSELVES with, and risk being dragged off to jail if they do.

  9. It's disappointing when you have such a negatively biases presentation. For example, your slide at approximately 6:20, difficulty, difficulty, impaired, increased risky behavior – STD HIV… are you kidding me? I though these types of baseless fear tactics went out with Reagan.
    The findings so far are coming out that there is more benefit than risk with the use of marijuana.
    As far as children are concerned, Israel had a Double-Blind study in the 1970's where children undergoing Chemotherapy treatment, some under the age of 1 year old, were given concentrated THC drops under the tongue during the chemo session. The children that were not given THC vomited violently. The children that were given THC, did not.
    There are benefits AND risks associated with this plant.
    Don't you think it's about time we found out what they are and start putting it to good use???
