To learn from Clint Werner, a preventive medicine expert, about the incredible benefits of human consumption of marijuana and how the endocannabinoid system in our bodies act as natural therapeutics to help protect us from cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes and other disease.

Find out what the government does not want you know and why the government suppresses research into marijuana that proves cannabis enhances our health and quality of life.

Stop Rx pot from turning "into a monopolistic prescription drug"

Endocannabinoids are crucial to bioregulation

I am now and have been disgusted with preventionist and prohibitionists, and am convinced millions of sensible Americans and me have good reason to feel that way about their draconian antidrug policies...

Endocannabinoids are crucial to bioregulation. With scientific evidence suggesting their role in inflammation, insulin sensitivity, and fat and energy metabolism, inhibition of endocannabinoids may be a tool in reducing the prevalence of metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, modulation of the endocannabinoid system may be a cure for more chronic neurologic and immune conditions. Many questions are left unanswered about this relatively newly discovered regulatory system. Further investigation into this exciting field promises to shed insights into the mechanisms of health and disease and provide new therapeutic options.
