Study: Marijuana Effectively Treats Depression

A new study has confirmed what many have known for decades – that marijuana can effectively treat different mental health conditions like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and chronic pain.

Neuroscientists at the University of Buffalo’s Research Institute on Addictions found that endocannabinoids, which are chemical compounds in the brain that active THC receptors, may help treat depression that has resulted from chronic stress.

While studying rats, researchers found that chronic stress reduced the production of endocannabinoids, which affect our cognition, emotion and behavior, and have been linked to reduced feelings of pain and anxiety, increases in appetite and overall feelings of well-being. This reduction of endocannabinoids showed to be a risk factor for developing depression.

“Using compounds derived from cannabis — marijuana — to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression,” lead researcher Dr. Samir Haj-Dahmane said in a university press release.

Additional research about the impact of marijuana on PTSD further bolstered the neuroscientists’ findings. A study published last year in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology showed that cannabinoids triggered changes in the brain that prevented the behavioral and psychological symptoms of PTSD.

Unfortunately, it’s a two way street with depression and marijuana. Some research has shown heavy marijuana smokers to be at a higher risk for the development of depression. More studies are needed to corroborate this finding.

New Study: Cops With College Degrees Are Less Likely to Use Force Against Citizens

A new study out of Michigan State University proposes an eye-opening correlation between college educated police officers and their actions as cops.

The study suggests that college-educated police experience higher rates of job dissatisfaction. The study also suggests that police officers with college degrees are more likely to have adverse views of their supervisors and don’t necessarily favor community policing.

But perhaps the most compelling facet of this MSU study is the evidence that college-educated officers are less likely to use force on citizens.

The study analyzed data from 2,109 police officers in seven metropolitan police departments. Although none of the departments required a degree, 45 percent of the officers surveyed, possessed one.

Interestingly, the study showed that the type of degree the officer received made no difference in the level of job dissatisfaction.

“Our latest results on police views might lead one to question whether a college education is beneficial for officers,” said William Terrill, professor at MSU’s School of Criminal Justice and co-author of the study. “But our research is a mixed bag, and you have to take into account the behavioral effect as well. If you use less force on individuals, your police department is going to be viewed as more legitimate and trustworthy and you’re not going to have all the protests we’re having across the country.”

Today’s policing, Terrill said, “is much more about social work than it is law enforcement. It’s about resolving low-level disputes, dealing with loiterers and so on.” Officers with experience in psychology, sociology and other college-taught disciplines might be more adept at addressing these issues, according to the study.

This study from MSU tends to corroborate the reasoning behind the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit condoning the ability of police departments to discriminate against smart people.

The main argument cited by the court for the decision to allow police departments the ability to discriminate is that smart people experienced more job dissatisfaction.

However, knowing that educated cops tend to be less violent and to know that departments can legally refuse to hire officers with higher intelligence, one can now have a better understanding of the police state in which we currently find ourselves.

A smart person does not create a domestic standing army and call it freedom.

A smart person does not deliberately tear gas journalists. A smart person does not point a rifle an innocent person and tell them that they are going to kill him. A smart person does not severely beat a person with down syndrome because he sees a bulge in his pants, which is actually a colostomy bag. A smart person does not continuously shoot at an unarmed man who posed no threat and whose arms are in the air.

Another study should be conducted that takes a look at departments who have a majority of college-educated officers and compare the level of force used to another department with a majority of officers who are not college-educated.

Perhaps the level of job satisfaction would increase if the departments were made up of intelligent people who are less likely to use force. Maybe, just maybe, the act of policing a society could be done with acumen and compassion instead of ignorance and brute force. One can certainly dream.

Study: E-Cigarette Use Linked To Decreased Immune Strength

By The Rundown Live

Thomas Nelson | HigherPerspective

A new study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has linked decreased immune function in the lungs and generate many of the same potential dangers that traditional cigarettes do. E-cigarettes are a fast growing trend and are emerging as an enormous public health concern.

From Johns Hopkins:

For their study, researchers divided mice into two groups: one was exposed to e-cigarette vapor in amounts that approximated actual human e-cigarette inhalation for two weeks, while the other group was just exposed to air. The mice exposed to the vapor were significantly more likely to develop compromised immune responses to when exposed to nasal drops of the flu virus and the bacterium responsible for pneumonia and sinusitis, which in some cases killed the mice, the researchers found.

Their findings were published today in the journal PLOS ONE should you want to read the study for yourself.

“Our findings suggest that e-cigarettes are not neutral in terms of the effects on the lungs,” said senior author Shyam Biswal, a professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at the Bloomberg School. “We have observed that they increase the susceptibility to respiratory infections in the mouse models. This warrants further study in susceptible individuals, such as COPD patients who have switched from cigarettes to e-cigarettes, or to new users of e-cigarettes who may have never used cigarettes.”

Last spring, the FDA announced plans to regulate e-cigarettes. As it stands, sales of e-cigarettes will likely exceed those of traditional cigarettes.

This Video Exposes The Corrupt World We’re Living In, But You Have The Power To Change It!

This Video Exposes The Corrupt World We're Living In, But You Have The Power To Change It!

Sam Benson | HigherPerspective

This is a short documentary film questioning our freedom, the education system, corporations, money, the American capitalist system, the US government, world collapse, the environment, climate change, genetically modified food, and our treatment of animals. It exposes the corrupt world we’re living it, but also provides us with a way to change it.

Video transcript:

At this moment you can be anywhere, doing anything. Instead you sit alone before a screen. So what is stopping us from doing what we want, being where we wanna be?

Each day we wake up in the same room, following the same path to live the same day as yesterday. Yet at one time, each day was a new adventure. Along the way something changed. Before, our days were timeless, now our days are scheduled. Is this what it means to be grownup, to be free, but are we really free? Food, water and land, the very elements we need to survive are owned by corporations.

If you try to take what earth provides you’ll be locked away, so we obey their rules.

We discovered the world through a text book, raised not to make a difference in this world, raised to be no different. Smart enough to do our job, but not to question why we do it. So we work and work left with no time to live the life we worked for.

If you live in America there is a 41% chance you will get cancer. Heart Disease will kill one out of 3 Americans.

We’re told that everything could be solved by throwing money at scientists so that they can discover a pill that makes our problems go away. But the drug companies and cancer societies rely on our suffering to make a profit. We think we running for a cure but really we running away from the cause. Our body is a product of what we consume and the food we eat is designed purely for profit. We fill ourselves with toxic chemicals, the bodies of animals infested with drugs and diseases.

But we don’t see this. The small group of corporations that own the media don’t’ want us to. Surrounding us with a fantasy we’re told is reality.

It is not too late, we can change it.

We Know THC Kills Cancer, But How? This Molecular Biologist Breaks It Down

By The Rundown Live

maxresdefault

Thomas Nelson | HigherPerspective

I think I’ve heard it about a billion times now that cannabis can kill cancer cells. What I’ve never been able to say for sure is how it’s done. Enter Dr. Christina Sanchez, a molecular biologist at Compultense University in Madrid, Spain. In the video above, she clearly explains how it is that cannabinoids are able to kill cancer cells.

Cannabinoids are compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They are responsible for activating cannabinoid receptors in the body, which causes the body to produce compounds called endocannabinoids, which play a role in providing a healthy environment inside of the body.

Pretty neat, huh?

Check out Dr. Sanchez’s video above. She breaks it down way better than we could.
