Marijuana Seeds: Marijuana should be freely available for research!
Former Government adviser David Nutt has expressed his opinion on the current strict Government regulations which make it extremely difficult for scientists to study drugs such as marijuana and ecstasy which have potential medical uses. It is well known that marijuana seeds and marijuana has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal effects, however, since the prohibition of the drug, scientists have found an increasing number of obstacles in obtaining the drug to study it further.
Much of the research that has been conducted uses marijuana replacement’s and has found that it can have positive therapeutic effects on those that suffer from illnesses such as depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. There is also some research that suggests it also helps those that suffer with diseases such as cancer, AIDS and multiple sclerosis, helping to increase patient’s appetites and helping them to relax.
Professor David Nutt used to sit as a member of the Governments Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs before he was sacked back in 2009 for publicly stating that tobacco and alcohol were more harmful than illegal drugs such as marijuana, LSD and ecstasy. David is a professor in neuropsychopharmacology at the Imperial College London and his comments on the lack of availability of illegal drugs come as he launches his book ‘Drugs without hot air’.
Currently if researchers wish to conduct experiments with illegal drugs they must apply for a licence to do so from the Home Office, this can take up to a year to approve and cost thousands of pounds. If the licence is approved researchers are then subject to random spot checks by the police and must have secure storage facilities in place.
David believes that many scientific opportunities have been missed over the past 40 years due to the lack of availability of the illegal drugs, He states that "Drugs are drugs – they differ in terms of their brain effects but, fundamentally, they're all psychotropic agents and it is arbitrary whether we choose to keep alcohol legal or ban cannabis or make tobacco legal and ban ecstasy. Those are not scientific decisions, they're political or moral or religious decisions." David believes that the current legislation and policy on drugs needs to be re-assessed.
