National Institute on Drug Abuse Says Cannabis Kills Cancer Cells

The Nationalcannabis 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.

  1. Obviously marijuana has much needed medicinal uses for some people. Recreational use leads to undesired results. So maybe it should be a controlled substance like pharmaceuticals. They are much needed but can be used in a bad way also.

  2. In Marathon, Florida in the Florida Keys many years ago the Dare Program offered any kid that told on their parents a trip to Disney World…..My husband spoke up and said,,,,listen kids, you may go to Disney World but when you come back you are not going to have any parents….They threw him out…I was proud of him…

    • Congratulations to him! To speak up, even if they pushed him out, back then the man has much courage. These laws will change eventually just not soon enough for a lot of people.

  3. I AM WAITING FOR THIS ADMISSION FROM THE GOVERNMENT,OUR BODIES MAKE CANNABIS, BECAUSE WE HAVE AN ENDOCANNABTNOID SYSTEM, AND THE CHEMICALS MADE BY MARIJUANA ARE MADE BY OUR BODIES

  4. Got to love how these publications only point out the negative and none of the positives like stopping pain, seizures, cancer. It reminds me of those propaganda films we had to watch in both grade school and high school— you know the ones with the imperfections in the film quality and the clicking of the take up reel on the projector.

    ” Be very careful kids, if you see some of this green leafy material, tell your teacher or a nice policeman immediately! Never attempt to pick up a marihuana cigarette, mere handling can cause mind-bending issues. Be sure to rat on a rat if you see any of your class mates with this green leafy material, if not, you can both go to jail.”

    Oh geeze.
