Marijuana Is A Lung Cleaner And Expectorant
Cannabis is the best natural expectorant to clear the human lungs of smog, dust and the phlegm associated with tobacco use.
Marijuana smoke effectively dilates the airways to the lungs, the bronchi, opening them to allow more oxygen into the lungs. It is also the best natural dilator of the tiny airways of the lungs, the bronchial tubes - making cannabis the best overall bronchial dilator for 80% of the population (the remaining 20% sometimes show minor negative reactions).
Statistical evidence showing up consistently as anamalies in matched populations - indicates that people who smoke tobacco cigarettes are usually better off and will live longer if they smoke cannabis moderately, too.
Millions of Americans have given up or avoided smoking tobacco products in favor of cannabis, which is not good news to the powerful tobacco lobby-Senator Jesse Helms and his cohorts. A turn-of-the-century grandfather clause in U.S. tobacco law allows 400 to 6,000 additional chemicals to be added. Additions since then to the average tobacco cigarette are unknown, and the public in the U.S. has no right to know what they are.
Many joggers and marathon runners fell cannabis use cleans their lungs, allowing better endurance.
The evidence indicated that cannabis use will probably increase these outlaw American marijuana users' lives by about 1 to 2 years yet they may lose their rights, property, children, state licenses, etc.. just for using that safest of substances: MARIJUANA
Marijuana Helps Asthma
More than 15 million Americans are affected by asthma. Smoking cannabis (The "raw drug" as the AMA called it) would be beneficial for 80% of them and add 30-60 million person-years in the aggregate of extended life to current asthmatics over presently legal toxic medicines such as the Theophylline prescribed to children.
"Taking a hit of marijuana has been known to stop a full blown asthma attack." Personal communication with Dr. Donald Tashkin, December 12, 1989 and December 1, 1997. The use of cannabis for asthmatics goes back thousands of years in literature. American doctors of the last century wrote glowing reports in medical papers that asthma sufferers of the world would "bless" Indian hemp (cannabis) all their lives.
The inhalation of cannabis smoke causes bronchial dilation lasting up to one hour. The bronchodilator effect of orally injested THC lasts up to six hours, but is not so powerful as smoking cannabis. THC aerosols are not as effective as smoking cannabis because aerosolized THC has an irritating effect on the air passages.
THC in a micoaerosol has proved to be up to 60 percent effective as a bronchodilator, with minimal mental effects and no parasympathetic effects. Other research demonstrates that THC defends against the encroachment of emphysema and suppresses coughing. Cannabis has been used sucessfully in the treatment of whooping cough.
Today, of the 16 million American asthma sufferers, only those living in California, Arizona and Nevada, with a doctor's recommendation can legally grow and use cannabis medicines, even though it is generally the most effective treatment for asthma.
Sleep and Relaxation
Cannabis lowers blood pressure, dilates the arteries and reduces body temperature an average of one-half degree, thereby relieving stress. Evening cannabis smokers report more restful sleep. Using cannabis allows most people a more complete rest with a higher amount of "alpha-time" during sleep as compared with prescription or sleep-inducing patent sedatives.
Prescription sleeping pills (the so called "legal, safe and effective" drugs) are often just legislation to restrict these often abused compounds. (L. A. Times April 2, 1991)
Unlike Valium, cannabis does not potentate the effects of alcohol, It is estimated that cannabis could replace more the 50% of Valium, Librium, Thorazine, Stelazine, and other "-zine" drugs and most sleeping pills. It is unconscionable that over the past 2 decades, tens of thousands of patents have committed their own children, aged 11 to 17, to be treated by massive doses of so-called "-zine" drugs in order to get them off pot, at the urging of parent groups, the PDFA, the feds and administrators and doctors from federally approved, private and high-profit drug rehabilitation centers.
Often "-zine" drugs do work to stop these youths from using pot. They also stop a kid from loving his or her dog, and children stand a 1 in 4 chance of suffering from uncontrolled shaking for the rest of their lives. "But at least they're not high"
"The U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta said that 20-40% of "-zine" drug users have or will develop permanent lifetime palsies (shakes), November 1983. These prescription neurotoxins are chemically related to the pesticide and warfare nerve gas Sarin.
Hundreds of private drug-rehabilitation centers and their leaders keep this policy alive and in front of the media, often quoting discredited reports from NIDA or DEA because they earn fat profits selling their useless or destructive "marijuana treatment" for children.
After all, a relapse just means using marijuana again after a number of bouts with an "authority" This is mind control and and attempt to destroy individual free will.
