Marijuana: Does it Cause Men to Grow Boobs?
How about women?

Man-boobs, or "moobs"... C'mon, it's the munchies, not the marijuana!

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - candy bars I was astonished to read this in the Oregonian (Dec-4 2013) from the Philadelphia Inquirer. The Oregonian is notorious for printing this adverse garbage. In the same edition was a story about the lack of good, anti-nausea medications.

It is well-known by anyone who reads that marijuana is one of the best anti-nausea medications, better than the two standard medications mentioned in the article: Dramamine, which is really Benadril, and Zofran, which only works about half of the time. Cannabis/Marijuana (C/MJ) is the best drug for nausea and vomiting.

Marijuana: Excellent, Effective Replacement for Lethal Opiates and Opioids

Narcotics Kill Thousands!

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Cannabis medicine It is daunting to try to write an article like this when the references go back about 5,000 years to 2700 BC, when Cannabis/Marijuana was written up in Chinese medical texts. If I make some errors, please do not be too tough on me.

Cannabis/Marijuana (C/MJ) was introduced into western medicine about 1840 when Dr. William Brooke O'Shaughnessy (1809-1889)  brought it to England from India. Actually, Roman emperor Nero's surgeon Dioscorides in 70 AD praises Cannabis for its medical properties.

Marijuana Mis-Information and Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy

S.A.M.: "Smart Approaches to Marijuana" (what's so smart about it, anyway??)

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - cannabis tea It should be noted that Patrick Kennedy was a self-admitted addict to alcohol, cocaine and Oxycontin.

I routinely cruise the NYTimes for articles on marijuana, pro or con. You cannot imagine my surprise to read a "Letter to the Editor" dated Oct 27 2013, from Mr. Kennedy and his partner in crime, Kevin A. Sabet of S.A.M. (Smart Approaches to Marijuana).

They referred to the legalization of medical marijuana in California in 1996 and revolted in horror that in 2004 California was opening dispensaries where marijuana products could be purchased. Their revulsion was based on the premise that now that marijuana was legalized, that there would be a rise in marijuana use and marketing.

Marijuana: Best Therapy for PTSD

Better than alcohol, and most drugs: It will prevent millions of deaths

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - PTSD When I first started being a marijuana doctor, I had a lot of combat veterans with all kinds of physical wounds. These patients were eligible for medical marijuana permits. Many of them told me that they also had PTSD and they found out for themselves in Viet Nam that marijuana was good for combat terrors related to battle fatigue or shell shock, from WWI and WWII.

PTSD is related to battle fatigue, but it is far more serious and certainly more insidious. These early combat veterans were perplexed that they could not legally or medically obtain marijuana which worked “miraculously” for the extremes of combat stress.

Marijuana Replaces Opiates and Opioids for Chronic Pain

The DEA really screwed this up. Cannabis is better and safer than alcohol!

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - medical marijuana How and why the DEA is now practicing medicine is really a sick problem. I don’t think any of the research physicians are taking care of any chronic pain patients.

The New York Times articles (Oct 25 & 28, 2013) indicate that they may be illegally practicing medicine or, worse yet, pontificating about how the rest of us doctors should be treating chronic pain patients. One of the chief tenants of medical practice is to adequately treat pain. It is the main reason patients go to see a doctor.

Marijuana Moms and White Wine Alcoholic Debutantes

A little alcohol is easy to use without most people knowing, or caring.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - white wine I have suspected the latter for a long time. I have heard about afternoon bridge parties since I went to college in 1940. I was a golf caddy on women’s day, before that, and the bridge parties on non-golf days were a prominent subject of discussion.

Some women even played bridge after golf, and they got truly snockered. I assumed that this was a product of the upper class, but it seems all women were aspiring to the upper class, golf and white wine.
