The US government has thrown its weight behind the earth-shattering claims that cannabis can cure cancer. Health researchers for the US government claim that the active ingredients in cannabis – can inhibit the illness by causing cell death and blocking key blood vessels needed by tumours to grow. They say studies in mice and rats show cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells – while still protecting normal cells. Key chemical ingredients in marijuana were found effective in fighting against colon cancer, liver cancer, breast cancer and several other forms of the disease. It was also suggested that cannabis can boost the effectiveness of chemotherapy – without any of the nasty side effects. Commenting on the research London based Philosopher, Mr Cox, said, obviously prevention is better than the cure. Unfortunately a recent YouGov survey of adults in Britain, Germany and the U.S. finds that the British are the most opposed to cannabis legalisation. But there is hope, the next geneartion are more honest than their mothers and fathers. Adults aged 18-24 in the UK favour legalisation.
