THC to protect from risks associated with Ecstasy? Ecstasy to cure cancer?

Well a few days ago I got my e-newsletter (I love technology) from Erowid.org that had a particular article in it that caught my interest even more than everything else in it...Is THC Neuroprotective Against MDMA Toxicity? Wow, I thought THC/cannabis does EVERYTHING! It's still early days into the research but it looks promising, that's right...a harm minimization strategy for those ever increasing ecstasy users might be to be sure to blaze up :P


To read more visit: http://www.erowid.org/chemicals/mdma/mdma_article5.shtml and if you like the site please consider donating, they are a very important site who do brilliant work.

It was a few days after gloating more good values of cannabis that ANOTHER illicit substance, MDMA/'ecstasy' shows cancer destroying properties...and this in the mainstream media :O


"Researchers from Birmingham University claimed the designer drug, also known as MDMA, could be used to treat leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma after making it 100 times more effective at suppressing growth.
Ecstasy was already known to be effective against more than half of white blood cell cancers, but previously the large dose required to treat a tumour would also have killed the patient"
The only thing that concerns me is that the Australian "Ecstasy. Face Facts" ad campaign that the Government ran in a targeted and stereotypical way (i.e. ads in music magazines) was TOO EFFECTIVE. I mean what if someone has a cancer curable by a disco biscuit but won't have it because he knows battery acid, bleach and a dirty toilet are involved? Refer to picture below


Also note the graphical design work on the 
advertisement, I like how it's what I'd come to expect from governments terrible delivery of often misguided messages which have never proven themselves to be effective.

  4. Cannabis, is there anything it can't do? Even with proven beneficial effects, they still outlaw it, for whatever reason. I hate shock adverts like that, and all the warnings on tobacco, I'm not a smoker, but I know a lot of them, and they don't care.
