    So come to the first meeting of the year to see what the rest has in store, and bring friends interested in our cause (or causes would be more appropriate) :)

Multiple sclerosis a degenerative nerve disease effecting an estimated 250,000-350,000 Americans.A person suffering with this disease usually has symptoms that come and go suddenly. These symptoms include: Blurry/doubled vision, arm and leg weakness, muscle stiffness, memory loss, dizziness, loss of bladder control, as well as depression. Living with unpredictable symptoms such as those listed would make life a little scary, don’t you think?On March 1, 2012: In Madrid, Spain, a study was done using cannabinoid agonists, or a synthetically made cannabinoid made to react with our brain and immune system’s cannabinoid receptors. The study was done using mice with MS and found that administering the cannabinoid agonist “moderated disease progression and reduced MS symptoms, including spasms and tremors.”Investigators from the University of California at San Diego also reported that “inhaled cannabis significantly reduced objective measures of pain intensity and spasticity in patients with MS in a placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. Researchers concluded, “[S]moked cannabis was superior to placebo in reducing spasticity and pain in patients with multiple sclerosis and provided some benefit beyond currently prescribed treatment.”Don’t you think, with government and officials who ‘care’ and want to ‘help’ it’s people, wouldn’t a plant that could help people suffering from such a prominent disease, have been legalized and promoted many years ago? Cannabis grows naturally, from the ground with soil, sun, and water. Our countries pharmaceutical companies would make verylittle profit from cannabis and the patients who would be helped by it, and this is part of why it remains illegal today.spread the word, spread awareness!View my source HERE.
