|There is no reason to think marijuana is dangerous to AIDS patients. On the contrary, many AIDS patients report that marijuana helps avert the deadly "wasting syndrome" by stimulating appetite and reducing nausea. Cannabinoids do not actually damage the T-cells, which are depleted in HIV patients: one study even found that marijuana exposure increased T-cell counts in subjects (not AIDS patients) whose T-cell counts had been low.5 Epidemiological studies have found no relation between use of marijuana or other drugs and development of AIDS.|
|Isn't the real issue here using marijuana for those who are deathly ill? In this light arguments of it's abuse are selfish and childish. My uncle is DYING of cancer. To keep him from getting sick and allowing him to eat has added time to his life! Lets stop this foolishness and be merciful. (A comand of Christ).|
|for prescribed medical use,I wonder why the scientist's/researcher's haven't already found a legitimate medical use feom marijuana?
may be they've been smoking it instead of studying it?
