Three New Scientific Studies That Debunk Conventional Marijuana Myths

Fear-mongering headlines claiming that marijuana use causes birth defects, heart-attacks, and psychosis are common in the mainstream media. But newly published scientific evidence makes it clear that what is often portrayed as ‘conventional wisdom’ is really nothing more than ‘reefer madness.’

School damages the mental health of children

“The available evidence suggests quite strongly that school is bad for children’s mental health. Of course, it’s bad for their physical health, too; nature did not design children to be cooped up all day at a micromanaged, sedentary job.”

School-related anxiety and depression are real, serious issues that can lead to catastrophe, as evidenced by the rising suicide rate among children. In fact, according to the CDC, the suicide rate among 10 to 14 year olds has doubled since 2007. And for girls in that age group, the suicide rate has tripled over the past 15 years.

Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children

If the effects of vaccination on health were limited to protection against the targeted pathogens, as is assumed to be the case, no difference in outcomes would be expected between the vaccinated and
unvaccinated groups except for reduced rates of the targeted infectious diseases. However, in this homogeneous sample of 666 children there were striking differences in diverse health outcomes between the groups. The vaccinated were less likely to have had chickenpox or whooping cough, as expected, but more likely to have been diagnosed
with pneumonia and ear infections as well as allergies and NDDs.

Medicinal use for marijuana confirmed: CBD helps kids with rare epilepsy

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial—the gold-standard design—a component of marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) reduced seizures in children with a rare and devastating form of epilepsy.

The results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, provide the first solid evidence that marijuana can be used to treat epilepsy, something some patient groups and advocates have argued for years. It also adds to mounting data supporting the medicinal value of the controversial plant. The Drug Enforcement Administration currently lists marijuana as a Schedule I drug, a type of drug with no accepted medical use but a high potential for abuse.

When Vaccination Goes Wrong

This was a very hard video to post, my 12 yr old daughter was fine before her vaccine, now this is her life. We live in New Zealand and I thought our healthcare system was ok, we have been left to deal with this ourselves. I'm showing this because I want people to know what damage this vaccine can and does cause. Please research before deciding. I didn't :( sorry the audio wasn't the best, what I'm saying is "I've just carried Briar out of the bath as her legs keep collapsing, this is the amount of pain she is in after pain killers, that her pain feels like a 'big knife' in her legs, just over a year ago she could do all this, have a bath, play sport, just basically have a life, then the HPV vaccine happened and she can't do a thing

Study finds magic mushrooms are the safest recreational drug

I can confirm this. I have a few hundred shroom trips under my belt from over the last 25 years and I have never come to grief while taking them. Alcohol on the other hand has been there nearly every time I have been arrested or terribly embarrassed or injured myself.

Mushrooms are the safest of all the drugs people take recreationally, according to this year’s Global Drug Survey.

Of the more than 12,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016, just 0.2% of them said they needed emergency medical treatment – a rate at least five times lower than that for MDMA, LSD and cocaine.

School Bans Unvaccinated Kids After Immunized Children Start Chickenpox Outbreak

Augora Hills, CA — Close to one-quarter of students at a California elementary school have been directed by school officials to stay home for three weeks due to a small onset of chickenpox cases that began in March.

The chickenpox outbreak at Mariposa School of Global Education in Augora Hills, California is unique because the first case of chickenpox discovered at the school was found in a student who had been fully vaccinated.

Study Finds Cannabis Reverses Aging Processes in the Brain

The movement to free up the weed is growing, thanks in large part to an ever-growing body of scientific research disproving the U.S. government’s assertion that cannabis has no medical value. Research has proven that medical cannabis has a positive effect in the prevention and treatment of cancer, as well as having a clear benefit for seizure patients.

Medical cannabis patients use less opioids, antidepressants, and alcohol, study finds

I can totally see why the National Party/government are dead set against legalising cannabis in any form. All their friends in the liquor and pharmaceutical industries stand to lose a fortune. Andrew Little and the Labour Party are not much better.

Upon using medical cannabis, patients in pain and those suffering from other medical conditions reduced their use of opioids, antidepressants, sleep medications, alcohol, and other dangerous substances, according to a new study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology.

PRESS RELEASE

"Nanogirl" Dr Michelle Dickinson Reneges on Fluoride Debate

The question has to be asked - why after denigrating opponents of fluoridation and claiming that she has the science on her side, will Dr Dickinson not front up to a public debate like she agreed?

Auckland University Professor Michelle Dickinson, aka science blogger “Nanogirl” has backed down on debating Professor Paul Connett, Senior Advisor to the Fluoride Action Network. Dr Dickinson agreed in an email correspondence on Sunday with Fluoride Free New Zealand (FFNZ) that "she was happy to debate" and that "it was a debate that needs to happen". She said she would debate Prof Connett, providing it was on a mainstream television channel. The Nation and Q+A TV programmes both said they were willing to host the fluoridation debate.
