Could Marijuana Mean a Cure for Alzheimers?

Exciting news from The Motley Fool indicates that marijuana may hold a promising future for Alzheimer’s patients, by activating certain nerve cells in the brain that are related to memory.

While researchers say these findings are preliminary, it’s no secret that other research has begun to show that medical cannabis can be both safe and beneficial for human health. For example, dozens of studies point to marijuana's effectiveness against many different types of cancer, including brain cancer, breast and prostate, lung, thyroid, colon, pituitary, melanoma, and leukemia.

Israel is already embracing the use of cannabis to address numerous illnesses such as cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and Tourette’s Syndrome, and even U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy acknowledged in a CBS interview that marijuana may be useful for certain medical conditions.

The use of marijuana for medical purposes is now legal in 25 states and two additional states (Arkansas and Florida) have pending legislation or ballot measures to legalize medical marijuana. According to estimates, between 85 and 95 percent of Americans are in favor of medical cannabis, and nearly 60 percent support complete legalization of marijuana and, surprisingly, many doctors agree.

Yet, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have chosen to keep marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance, with “no acceptable medical treatment.” It’s time to demand an answer as to why, especially since the HHS has a patent for marijuana as a “neural protectant,” claiming it can protect your brain against stroke and trauma.
