National Institute on Drug Abuse Says Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a government-run research institute with a budget of over $1 billion, has admitted that cannabis can kill certain cancer cells, and reduces the size of others.
A publication from NIDA, revised as of April 2015 and titled Drug Facts, states that “recent animal studies have shown that marijuana can kill certain cancer cells and reduce the size of others.” It notes that; “Evidence from one animal study suggests that extracts from whole-plant marijuana can shrink one of the most serious types of brain tumors”, and that; “Research in mice showed that these extracts, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation.”
This publication is the first time NIDA has officially declared medical cannabis to have true medical value, and is directly contrary to the substances schedule 1 controlled substance status, meaning it has no known medical value.
