(NaturalNews) Twice as many patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) that were prescribed cannabis reported relief from muscle stiffness over the placebo while cannabis also provided better relief of body pain, muscle spasms, and sleep disturbances. In the MS study published online on July 12 in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. Dr. Zajicek states that overall, progression of disease in this group ... was less than expected... In other words, cannabis appears to have slowed the progression of the disease also. This is the strongest evidence behind using cannabinoids for symptom relief in MS so far.

Oddly enough, the US government holds patents on the medicinal attributes of marijuana's usage. This is the same government that denies its citizens the legal right to use medical marijuana.

It seems logical to conclude that if our government now owns the rights to a "natural substance" through patenting that the U.S. government knows that marijuana has valid medicinal properties. So why is the U.S. government so adamant in outlawing medical marijuana and unwilling to admit that marijuana has valid medicinal properties? Some 60 percent of Americans in our "democratic" society believe that doctors should be allowed to prescribe marijuana and yet the man with the gun and handcuffs says "NO." That's not democracy!

The patent

U.S. Patent 6630507 titled "Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants" is assigned to The United States of America, and claims - "Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of a wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants. For example, in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and HIV dementia."

A patent is granted by the government and used to protect the right of the inventor. NEWSFLASH The U.S. government did not invent cannabis! By definition, you should not be able to patent something that grows naturally. But the U.S. government has a patent to control the use of cannabis.

Marijuana is cancer protective?

But the benefits of cannabinoids don't stop with MS: One study (listed in cancer.gov) suggested that cannabinoids may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors. During this two-year study, a dose-related decrease in the incidence of hepatic adenoma tumors and hepatocellular carcinoma was observed along with decreased incidences of benign tumors in other organs. In another study (again listed in cancer.gov), cannabis was found to inhibit the growth of Lewis lung adenocarcinoma cells along with other tumors. Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells without harming the non-transformed cells.

A Costa Rican study found that chronic marijuana smokers who were also cigarette smokers were less likely to develop cancer than cigarette smokers who didn't use marijuana. Cannabis dilates the alveoli (tiny air sacks in the lungs), allowing toxins to be more easily eliminated. Nicotine conversely constricts the alveoli while cannabis neutralizes the constriction.

Freedom from tyranny

Our country was forged out of the struggle against outside tyranny but is falling quickly into the hands of even worse evils than our forefathers strove against - inside complacency and ignorance. But the biggest evils occur when men and women choose to sit by and let tyranny seep in and take control. Our freedoms are quickly running out in the USA.

"The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant." Maximilien Robespierre

It is high time that the majority once again rules - If our country's leaders refuse to listen, then it's time to vote them out. Your life may depend upon it!
