Cannabis on prescription - the future of medical marijuana | DW Documentary
Cannabis, also known as marijuana or weed, is being legalized for medicinal use in a growing number of countries. Perceptions towards cannabis are changing. [Online until: 16.10.2018] The list of diseases that the drug cannabis can reportedly alleviate or even cure is long: multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, chronic pain - even brain tumors. But has research really documented the effectiveness of medical marijuana? Cannabis has long been held to have healing properties, and has been used as a medicinal and recreational drug in world cultures for thousands of years. It wasn’t until the 20th century that marijuana was branded a corrupting influence and banned in many countries. Cannabis was seen as a stepping-stone to harder substances, and possession became a punishable offence. Because of weed’s association with criminal activity, even scientific research into marijuana was off-limits. But in recent years there’s been a turnaround, with increasing numbers of patients using cannabis for medicinal purpose. Today therapeutic use of cannabis is permitted in more than 30 countries. In the United States, families with children suffering from epilepsy are even moving to states that have decriminalized the drug cannabis for medical use. As a result of these developments, scientific research into the therapeutic uses of cannabis is booming. Recent studies confirm that cannabinoids may offer an alternative to conventional treatments for multiple sclerosis, Crohn's Disease, epilepsy and certain forms of cancer. They’ve also been shown to alleviate the side effects of chemotherapy. The growing medical interest in this miracle weed appears to be winning over pubic opinion too. This report delves into the facts about this controversial plant and lets scientists at the forefront of cannabis research have their say. _______ DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

5 Illegal Drugs With Medicinal Benefits

But what exactly are some of the effects on your brain? + + + + + + + + Previous Episode: Where Did Marijuana Come From, And How Did It Spread?: http://www.seeker.com/where-did-marijuana-come-from-and-how-did-it-spread-1856221054.html + + + + + + + + Sources: The Science of Marijuana: How THC Affects the Brain: http://headsup.scholastic.com/students/the-science-of-marijuana “Some people believe smoking marijuana carries no risks. But scientific research shows that there are risks, especially for teens. Marijuana affects a person’s judgment and can impair his or her ability to drive." What Is THC?: http://www.livescience.com/24553-what-is-thc.html “THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)." Smoking Too Much Cannabis Causes Dopamine Deficits In The Brain: http://www.iflscience.com/brain/smoking-too-much-dope-causes-dopamine-deficits-brain/ “There’s no doubt that getting high can make you do some pretty dumb stuff, although the scientific community remains split over whether or not smoking too many joints causes lasting cognitive impairment." How Does Marijuana Produce Its Effects?: https://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/research-reports/marijuana/how-does-marijuana-produce-its-effects “THC and other cannabinoid chemicals in marijuana are similar to cannabinoid chemicals that naturally occur in the body. These endogenous cannabinoids (such as anandamide; see figure) function as neurotransmitters because they send chemical messages between nerve cells (neurons) throughout the nervous system." The Science of the Endocannabinoid System: How THC Affects the Brain and the Body: http://headsup.scholastic.com/students/endocannabinoid “After several decades of research, scientists studying the effects of marijuana made several important discoveries. Not only did they identify the active ingredient in marijuana, they also discovered where and how it works in the brain—via a new system they called the endocannabinoid (EC) system." Pot Science: Top Marijuana Findings of 2015: http://www.livescience.com/53218-top-marijuana-scientific-findings-2015.html “Researchers who study marijuana made a number of findings in 2015, from learning about the health effects of using the drug frequently and recreationally, to figuring out which diseases and conditions are most likely to benefit from the substance's use."

Legalized Pot: Smoke It or Eat It?: http://www.livescience.com/24714-marijuana-edibles-colorado-washington.html “The recreational use of marijuana is now legal in both Colorado and Washington, which means that (state) law-abiding Americans might soon have the choice to use a substance whose long-term health effects are still not well understood by science." Smoke vs. Snack: Why Edible Marijuana Is Stronger Than Smoking: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/13/smoke-vs-snack-why-edible-marijuana-is-stronger-than-smoking.html “Eating marijuana tends to produce a stronger and much longer-lasting high than smoking it—one that is often scary to inexperienced users and can be disconcerting to regulars. This has created some controversy in Colorado, as cannabis neophytes consume newly legal “edibles” ranging from ganja brownies to pot-infused salsa." How Long Does Cannabis Stay In The Body After Smoking?: http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/2287.aspx?CategoryID=53 “It depends on how often and how much cannabis a person smokes and the potency (strength) of the cannabis. In general, the less cannabis that’s smoked, and the less often it’s smoked, the quicker it leaves the body." + + + + + + + + DNews Plus is built for enthusiastic science fans seeking out comprehensive conversations on the geeky topics they love.

Medical marijuana is proved to have certain valuable medical properties, which are witnessed and documented. Just to name a few of them, there are: improvement in patients that suffer nausea and vomiting, raise of appetite in patients that undergo chemotherapy or suffer AIDS, it also reduces intraocular pressure and possesses general pain relieving properties. Some studies as well confirmed marijuana to have benefits for a vast range of medical conditions, from disseminate sclerosis to depression and similar conditions. Synthetic THC (THC is the main active component of marijuana) is also available as a prescription drug, known as Marinol. Marijuana effectively helps in a wide range of medical conditions and diseases, including muscle spasms, glaucoma, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, AIDS, HIV, diabetes, chronic pains, nausea, insomnia, seizure disorders, appetite loss, medium pains, spasticity, brain cancer, and lung cancer. Globally accepted by the medicinal society as an alternative treatment for patients, who suffer from a broad range of chronic diseases and medical conditions, medical has truly become one of a few treatments that are really effective. Of course, each patient has to first get a marijuana card. Medical marijuana is most often used as an illegal substance or a recreational drug in other words, in a lot of developed nations. Medicinal researches have displayed that the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) - marijuana's main active component - supplies essential medical benefits in a lot of patients. Voters of Arizona and California considered these benefits substantial and have approved regulations that allow the use of medical marijuana by any patient that has a medical marijuana card.

It’s Time for Substance Abuse to Graduate | David Anderson | TEDxGeorgeMasonU
Drugs and alcohol surround us. Unfortunately, abuse of these substances also surrounds us. Further, each of us knows one or more people about whom we are concerned with their use of drugs or alcohol. The deaths and injuries are, to a large extent, preventable. We have lots of resources at our disposal; what’s important is to harness the passion to prevent and intervene more effectively. David Anderson, Ph.D. serves as a Professor and Director, Center for the Advancement of Public Health, School of Recreation, Health and Tourism, College of Education and Human Development, at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. He serves as project director and researcher on numerous national, state and local projects, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on drug and alcohol issues, community health, and health communications; conducts needs assessments; prepares evaluation and analysis; and assists with strategic planning. Specialty areas include drug/alcohol abuse prevention, strategic planning and mobilization, communication and education, health promotion, and needs assessment and evaluation.

All rights reserved. Support us on Patreon and get FREE downloads and other great rewards: patreon.com/AlilaMedicalMedia Marijuana, also known as cannabis, among other names, is a preparation of the Cannabis sativa plant - the hemp plant, intended for recreational and medicinal uses. The main psychoactive chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydro-cannabinol, or THC. The Cannabis plant preparation also contains other compounds that are chemically related to THC, called cannabinoids. THC is chemically similar to a class of substances found naturally in our nervous system called endogenous cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids, of which anandamide is best known so far. The endocannabinoids are part of a newly discovered system named the Endocannabinoid system, or ECS. How the ECS works The ECS acts as a modulator of neurotransmission. When the postsynaptic neuron is activated, endocannabinoids are produced, released, and travel back to the presynaptic neuron where they activate cannabinoid receptors. By doing so, they control what happens next when the presynaptic cell is again stimulated. The general effect is a decrease in the release of neurotransmitters such as GABA or glutamate. In other words, the ECS acts as a “brake”, slowing down neuronal activities, preventing neurons from excessive firing. Some examples of ECS functions include: - Pain modulation: cannabinoids suppress pain signal processing, producing pain relief effects. - Stress and anxiety reduction: The ECS has been implicated in the habituation the body’s response to repeated exposure to restraint stress. - Mood regulation: the ECS promotes “good feeling” by inducing dopamine release in the brain reward pathway. This explains the euphoria, or the “high”, experienced by marijuana users. THC mode of action is however different from other drugs: it induces dopamine release INDIRECTLY by removing inhibitory action of GABA on dopaminergic neurons. The ECS is also involved in many more bodily activities, including appetite, memory, learning, sleeping patterns, immune functions and fertility. So how can marijuana be harmful if it does exactly what our body already does to itself? The endocannabinoids are short-acting transmitter substances. They are synthesized on demand and their signaling is rapidly terminated by specific enzymes. Marijuana users consume a much higher amount of THC. THC is also much more stable and can persist in the body for a longer period of time. THC overwhelms the EC system, overriding normal brain functions. Because cannabinoid receptors are present in many parts of the brain and body, the effects of THC are wide-ranging. It can slow down a person’s reaction time, which could impair driving or athletic skills; disrupt short-term memory and higher thought processes, which could affect learning capabilities and judgment ability. Higher doses of THC may also lead to reverse effects. Consuming marijuana by smoking may also damage the lungs to a similar extent as smoking cigarettes. Long - term effects of THC Substantial evidence from animal research indicates that marijuana exposure can cause long-term adverse changes in the brain. Long-term effects of marijuana in human are still debatable mostly due to difficulties of conducting research in human beings. Medical uses of marijuana While recreational use of marijuana is without doubt harmful, the Cannabis plant may be a valuable source of medicines. Currently, the two main cannabinoids from the marijuana plant that are of medical interest are THC and cannabidiol, or CBD. These chemicals are used to increase appetite and reduce nausea in patients undergoing cancer chemotherapy. They may also be useful in reducing pain and inflammation, controlling epileptic seizures, and possibly even treating autoimmune diseases and cancers.

Oxycodone: What You Need To Know
Oxycodone is a popular member of the opioid class. It is widely used in medical settings for acute and chronic pain. Outside of those settings, it has long been used recreationally, with its effects compared to morphine and heroin. The drug is sold either on its own or in combination with acetaminophen (primarily). When acetaminophen is present, the dose must be limited. The general recommendation is to avoid using over 1,000 mg of acetaminophen at once or 3,000 mg per day. An oxycodone overdose can be very dangerous and even deadly, with a notably problematic effect being respiratory depression. It is more risky when combined with other CNS depressants (e.g. benzodiazepines and alcohol.)

How the President Can End Pot Prohibition Without Congress
After President Obama admitted last year that he doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, he was pressed to reconcile this view with the federal war on weed. Why won’t he once and for all declassify marijuana as a controlled substance? The president’s response, and that of his attorney general, is that it’s a job for Congress. But that’s not true, says Brookings Institution Senior Fellow John Hudak. According to a report authored by Hudak and Grace Wallack, the federal Controlled Substances Act clearly details a process by which the administration can take marijuana out of the drug schedules or, at the least, lower its schedule so that medical research can proceed. To the feds, marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance, considered the most dangerous of the five classes of drugs. Schedule 1 drugs are defined as having a “high potential for abuse,” and are the only controlled substances the feds claim have “no currently accepted medical use.” That's why marijuana is treated the same as heroin, and why it's even more restricted than meth. Since California became the first state to legalize in 1996, many more states are waking up to the benefits of ending pot prohibition. Twenty-three states and the nation’s capital have already legalized medical marijuana, while Pennsylvania enacted a law to do so just last week and at least a dozen more states are considering following suit this year. Four states allow recreational use, and over 80 percent now permit some form of medical cannabis extract. These reforms mean that patients with diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s can get life-changing treatments, violent drug cartels are being starved, and state and local governments have a new revenue source to make good on their unfunded liabilities. So why does federal law still matter if states are legalizing left and right? Because it means federal agencies still can—and have—ignored state sovereignty by raiding legal facilities on a whim. They deny cannabis businesses access to loans and bank accounts, and, perhaps most perniciously, federal regulations prevent most scientists from studying marijuana’s medical benefits. In fact, the feds say marijuana has to remain in Schedule 1 because there aren’t FDA-style clinical studies supporting its medical value. Yet such clinical studies are exactly what the feds prohibit by keeping marijuana in Schedule 1. Even with this catch-22, there’s already abundant evidence of marijuana’s medical value from other types of studies—just ask the Surgeon General. Or the Department of Health and Human Services, which owns a patent on the chemical components of marijuana. Or the FDA itself, which has approved and allowed the rescheduling of cannabis-based medicine. Or the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which has suggested we need to reconsider marijuana as a medicine and allow more research. The most recent petition to reschedule marijuana was filed with the attorney general in 2011, and—half a decade later—is still pending. Only four such petitions have been considered since 1972, and one took over 20 years to adjudicate. The DEA claims it will complete its review of the current petition by June, but this history shouldn’t encourage marijuana reformers to hold their breath. The clock is ticking on the Obama administration. Absent further congressional action, will the president finally find the political will to end federal pot prohibition? Or will he leave it to a future Congress or POTUS? 5:48 minutes. Written and Produced by Justin Monticello. Camera by Joshua Swain. Additional footage by Mitch Martinez.

See much more honest health information at: http://www.rehealthify.com/ Rehealthify offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. -- video script below -- When you are pregnant, you are not just "eating for two." You also breathe and drink for two, so it is important to carefully consider what you give to your baby. If you smoke, use alcohol or take illegal drugs, so does your unborn baby. First, don't smoke. Smoking during pregnancy passes nicotine and cancer-causing drugs to your baby. Smoke also keeps your baby from getting nourishment and raises the risk of stillbirth or premature birth. Don't drink alcohol. There is no known safe amount of alcohol a woman can drink while pregnant. Alcohol can cause life-long physical and behavioral problems in children, including fetal alcohol syndrome. Don't use illegal drugs. Using illegal drugs may cause underweight babies, birth defects or withdrawal symptoms after birth. If you are pregnant and you smoke, drink alcohol or do drugs, get help. Your health care provider can recommend programs to help you quit. You and your baby will be better off. Dept. of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health

A history of the American war on weed
On November 8, multiple states legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes -- so Joe Dolce’s new book on the substance's history in the U.S. is timely. Dolce argues marijuana's bad reputation is a result of political demonization, including an intentional name change and association with hippies and disorder. This is his Brief but Spectacular take on the past and future of cannabis.

Festival of Dangerous Ideas 2013: Peter Hitchens - There is No War on Drugs
Drug taking has moved from being outlawed behaviour, seen only on the fringes of society, to a widely accepted activity, even when illegal. In Britain, for all the talk of a "war on drugs," no one ever tried to wage one. Instead, drug taking has become more and more legally and socially acceptable. We frame drug-taking as either a harmless diversion or, when taken to excess in the form of addiction, as an illness that needs to be cured. Regardless of the impact on physical and mental health, the hard truth is that self-stupefaction of any kind is morally wrong. Drug taking is pure self-indulgence. It prioritises personal pleasure and instant gratification in a way that wreaks havoc with any kind of ethical framework. If we don't want to succumb to a culture of violence, greed, and selfishness, we should make sure that the moral argument about drugs is not pushed aside. Not even the most rabid advocate of legalisation would argue that more drug taking would be a good thing, so let's have the courage to deter it by clearly saying: "it's wrong." Peter Hitchens is an English journalist and author. His latest book is The War We Never Fought: The British Establishment's Surrender to Drugs. http://sydneyoperahouse.com/ideas Subscribe and find more videos from Ideas at the House: http://www.youtube.com/ideasatthehouse Get a new talk every week on our podcast: Audio - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640445035 Video - https://itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sydney-opera-house-ideas-at/id640444896 Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/IdeasAtTheHouse Twitter - https://twitter.com/ideasatthehouse

Marijuana: The Latest Scientific Findings and Legalization
California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada became the latest states to legalize recreational marijuana, bringing to 28 the number of states that have okayed the drug for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. Even more states have rules that allow certain kinds of cannabis extracts to be used for medical purposes. At the same time that state legalization is increasing, the Trump administration is signaling that it may ramp up enforcement of federal drug laws, even when they come into conflict with state laws allowing recreational marijuana use. State and local governments may find themselves on uncertain legal ground. Meanwhile, policymakers navigating this new landscape are also working largely without the benefit of a solid foundation of scientific evidence on the drug’s risks and benefits. In fact, a new National Academy of Medicine report describes notable gaps in scientific data on the short- and long-term health effects of marijuana. What do we know about the health impacts of marijuana, and what do we still need to learn? This Forum brought together researchers studying marijuana’s health impacts with policymakers who are working to implement new laws in ways that will benefit and protect public health. Part of The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with The Huffington Post on Friday, March 24, 2017. Watch the entire series at ForumHSPH.org.

Causes of Erectile Dysfunction: Drugs & Addiction
In this episode of his new weekly video series, Dr. Aaron Spitz discusses drugs and addiction as causes of erectile dysfunction. Dr. Spitz explains the how drugs and addiction have a negative impact on male sexual function - despite the somewhat popular belief that drugs positively enhance it. Watch the full video for all the details. Follow Dr. Aaron Spitz on social media and never miss an update: https://www.facebook.com/Aaron-Spitz-MD-1558217004475897/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/aaron-spitz-md-26962b1b http://twitter.com/AaronSpitzMD https://plus.google.com/u/0/101887329928933114052?hl=en https://www.instagram.com/draaronspitz/ Full video transcript: Hi, I’m Dr. Aaron Spitz, America’s favorite penis doctor, and today I want to talk to you about drug use and sexual function. You know, since ancient times, people have been fascinated with the idea of a love potion or aphrodisiac, something to increase or enhance their sexual experience. Many people turn to recreational drugs to enhance their sexual experience, but do these substances really enhance the sexual experience? To tell the truth, they do not. In fact, over time, they ruin a man’s ability not only to desire sex, but to have it. I’ll take you through some of the most common substances and how they hit you below the belt. Alcohol is the most widely used substance, and although a little is okay, heavy use will result in erectile dysfunction, also known as “whiskey dick.” Alcohol is a depressant, and it depresses or blunts the nerves that are important in causing erection. Even Viagra won’t work when there’s too much alcohol on board. In fact, very heavy use of alcohol eventually causes the liver to produce too much estrogen—female hormone—and this deteriorates the ability to have erections, takes away sex drive, and makes it hard to reach climax. So, too much Dos Equis and you definitely won’t be the most interesting man in the room. Cigarettes—well, by now you must know that cigarettes are bad for you. But did you know that the nicotine actually constricts the blood vessels that go to the penis? And those blood vessels are really small to begin with, so narrowing them down results in difficulty reaching an erection. This is true, also, of the nicotine in vaping. So either way, where there’s smoke, there eventually won’t be fire in the bedroom. Chronic use of marijuana also has negative effects on sex. Over time, it acts like the female hormone estrogen and results in increased breast tissue, decreased sexual desire, and decreased ability to have erections or reach sexual climax. So yeah, no woman no cry. And too much ganja—no woman. Pain pills. There’s an epidemic of pain pills in this country—Vicodin, OxyContin, etcetera—and pain pills, if taken over a long period of time, actually shut down the central control of testosterone production: the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland gets blunted down and stops stimulating the testicles to produce testosterone, and with low testosterone, you lose your ability to have erections, your desire for sex, and your ability to have sexual climax. Heroin also works at the level of testosterone. It creates an increased amount of molecules that bind up testosterone and take it out of your system—so, similar problem. Amphetamines and cocaine: they seem to increase sexual desire and sexual performance initially, but pretty quickly you burn out. Meth users notice they have increased sexual desire but an inability to keep their erection. They call it “crystal dick.” And after a while, they actually lose their sexual desire, lose their ability to have erections, or to even have sexual climax, and this is true for most classes of amphetamines, and cocaine as well. Fortunately, all these dysfunctions can be reversed and improved, once a person stops abusing these substances. The body really has a remarkable ability to heal itself and repair itself. But the best course of action, of course, is to avoid abusing these substances in the first place, and instead, derive maximal pleasure from the biggest sex organ in your body: your brain. I hope this has been helpful. Don’t forget to continue to follow me on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Prescription painkiller tramadol ‘claiming more lives than any other drug’ - ITV 06-10-2016
Prescription painkiller tramadol, taken by thousands of people every day, is claiming more lives than any other drug – including heroin and cocaine – according to Northern Ireland’s top pathologist. The painkiller doesn’t cause harm if taken correctly, but the danger rises when users mix it with other drugs or alcohol. Last year, 33 deaths in Northern Ireland were linked to tramadol. Among them were a 16-year-old girl and a pensioner in his 70s. I don't think that people realise how potentially risky taking tramadol is. I think it’s because it’s a prescription drug - people assume it’s safe. – Professor Jack Crane, State Pathologist for NI The opiate-based drug used to treat moderate or severe pain should only be available on prescription – it was reclassified in 2014 making it an illegal Class C drug without prescription. But anti-drug campaigners say more and more people are turning to the black market. Professor Jack Crane has spoken out to say he fears more people will die unless urgent action is taken and he is calling for a crackdown on the illegal market. He wants tramadol to be upgraded again, this time to Class A. Professor Crane is now set to meet Northern Ireland's Chief Medical Officer later this month to push for change.

Smoking, Drinking and Drug Use among Young People in England 2014
Since 1982 we've been speaking to young people, aged 11-15, in schools across England about how smoking, drinking and drug use affects their lives. We collect this information to make sure that the government, charities and health professionals make the right decisions about how to help young people. It also shows how things are changing over the years. This short animation shows some of our key findings from last year's study. By watching this animation you'll discover smoking facts, drug information and alcohol statistics relating to young people in England. For those based in other countries like the rest of Europe, the US and elsewhere, the information makes for a really interesting comparison. We'll answer questions like is there really a teenage drinking problem among young people? How aware are young people of the dangers of alcohol and much more. This animation makes interesting watching for healthcare professionals, youth workers, people working in drug and alcohol services, those involved in developing drug, alcohol and tobacco policy, and anyone with a broader interest in substance abuse and society.
