50th anniversary of my brother Danny’s death — a pioneering medical #cannabis patient in early 1970s. My parents bought weed illegally as Nixon started War on Cannabis; it vastly transformed Danny’s quality of life on chemo toward end during his unsuccessful fight with leukemia.

Medical cannabis has a long history dating back thousands of years, and it was not until Medical cannabis that cannabis entered the realm of western medicine. Some of the earliest evidence of cannabis as medicine is found in the Pen-ts’ao ching, the oldest pharmacopoeia compiled in China around AD 100 based on oral traditions passed down from as early as 2700 BC. Cannabis is thought to have disseminated in India, where it became widely used for medical purposes—including as an analgesic, anti-convulsant, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and many others—around 1000 BC. There is also evidence of cannabis use in Persian medicine for the treatment of infectious wounds and gout, and in Arabic medicine as a treatment for epilepsy. By the 15th century, it was used throughout Africa to facilitate childbirth, as well as for diseases including malaria and dysentery. Cannabis is thought to have reached the Americas by the 16th century. MICHELLE DOTZERT, PHD – Lab Manager. Jun 03, 2020
During his travels through North Africa in the 1830s, French psychiatrist Jacques-Joseph Moreau observed the use of hashish (cannabis resin). He proposed that drug intoxication and hallucinations involved similar mechanisms, and upon his return to Paris, began to experiment on the subject. In 1845, his book, Du hachisch et de l’aliénation mentale: études psychologiques was published (and translated into English, Hashish and Mental Illness, in 1973). Moreau was also a point of connection between cannabis and the art world, as “Club des Haschichins” (Hashish Club) included Dumas, Baudelaire, and others who participated in his experiments.

William O’Shaughnessy, an Irish physician, is credited with introducing cannabis into western medicine with his publication, “On the Preparations of the Indian Hemp, or Gunjah- Cannabis Indica their Effects on the Animal System in Health, and their Utility in the Treatment of Tetanus and other Convulsive Diseases” in 1843. O’Shaughnessy joined the British East India Company, and became a professor of chemistry at Calcutta Medical College. His experiments examined the effects of cannabis in animals, and eventually included human subjects. He returned to England with a large amount of cannabis and shared his findings with other physicians, leading to the widespread adoption of medical cannabis across Europe and North America.
The Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 imposed extremely high taxes on the substance, and led to the exclusion of cannabis from the United States Pharmacopoeia in 1941. This was followed by the enactment of the Boggs Act in 1951, and the Narcotic Control Act in 1956. By 1970, cannabis was prohibited under federal law with the Controlled Substances Act.
A surge in recreational cannabis use from the late 1960s to early 1970s and the concomitant discovery of Δ 1 3,4-trans-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9 THC), the main active compound in cannabis, spurred renewed interest in cannabis research. Cannabis receptors and drug approvals It was not until 1988 that studies in rat brains revealed the presence of a cannabinoid receptor, CB1 , which was later confirmed in human brain sections, dispersed in outflow nuclei of the basal ganglia, the hippocampus, and cerebellum. A second cannabinoid receptor, CB2, was later discovered in the periphery. Around the same time, the search for endogenous substances capable of interaction with cannabinoid receptors led to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS maintains homeostasis, and regulates multiple processes including learning, sleep, and metabolism, among others. To this day, its full complexity has yet to be elucidated.
The 1999 IOM report concluded: “Scientific data indicate the potential therapeutic value of cannabinoid drugs, primarily THC, for pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation…”
In 2003, a placebo-controlled study, “Cannabinoids for the treatment of spasticity and other symptoms related to multiple sclerosis (CAMS)” was published. Six hundred and thirty participants with multiple sclerosis-related spasticity were randomized into groups and received an oral natural cannabis extract (a 2:1 ratio of THC and cannabidiol), synthetic THC, or a placebo for 15 weeks. The results revealed “no association” between cannabinoids and improvement in spasticity, as assessed by clinicians using the Ashworth scale. However, patients have reported improved spasticity and pain, leading researchers to “conclude” that cannabinoids may be clinically useful. In 2005, SATIVEX® (delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol and cannabidiol in the EU, Nabiximols, an investigational product in the US) received approval from Health Canada as an adjunctive treatment for neuropathic pain in adults with multiple sclerosis and was subsequently approved for the control of pain in patients with advanced cancer in 2007.
In 2017, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine published a report on the health effects of marijuana and derived products. Following a review of the scientific research pertaining to therapeutic effect, the committee concluded there was evidence to support the use of cannabis and cannabinoids for pain reduction, and oral cannabinoids for multiple-sclerosis related muscle spasm and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.
Since then, cannabis science has continued to advance and evolve, and so have the laws pertaining to its use. Legalization removes all prohibitions against cannabis possession and use for recreational purposes, and as of 2020, cannabis has been legalized in 11 states—Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Michigan, Vermont, Illinois—and the District of Columbia. Alternatively, several states have decriminalized cannabis, meaning it remains illegal, but individuals possessing less than a specified amount are not prosecuted by the legal system.
A data pela Consciência Negra cria uma verdadeira revolução no jornalismo e na política. Veículos de comunicação falam de negros, leis anti-racistas são aprovadas, pesquisas sobre “como vive o negro no Brasil?” são publicadas, casos de racismo são lembrados, até que o mês acaba. Basília Rodrigues – CNN
É mais ou menos assim, fala-se de mães em maio; de papai noel em dezembro e da luta racial, o nosso racismo de todos os dias, em novembro. Amigos meus negros, referências em suas áreas, se indignam: por que são procurados somente em novembro? Somos negros 7 dias da semana, todo mês.
A consciência é humana – deveria ser mas não é. Todos são iguais – deveriam ser mas não são. Não precisa de data – poderia mas não dá. Por que não existe dia do branco? – 365 dias não são suficientes?
Essas reflexões só são possíveis porque existe um dia da #ConscienciaNegra. Se não fosse essa data, não estaríamos tendo essa conversa.
A consciência é negra por razões do passado, do presente e do futuro. A consciência é negra porque os negros e não os brancos foram escravizados por 300 anos neste país. Você lembra? Não. Pela nossa idade, a gente não viveu isso mas até hoje sentimos os efeitos dessa disparidade de direitos e oportunidades.
A consciência é negra porque é do negro que se exige mais resistência para passar por situações como uma pandemia, dado o nível de vulnerabilidade social. A pretensa liberdade de 133 anos atrás, produto da lei áurea, nos jogou nas periferias, onde ninguém queria ir, à margem da sociedade.
A consciência é negra porque a perfeita consciência humana nunca existiu e os negros precisam preparar as gerações futuras para que a trajetória de avanços, ainda que parcos, não seja estragada.
A data é provocativa, didática e simbólica. É bom ver alguém incomodado com o 20 de novembro, sinal de que o fez pensar nos negros. Mantenha-se assim amanhã.
What Ho Wee Readers, I hope you’ve all been keeping optimistic in these troubling times of ours. I know it’s difficult, and with any hope there’s not a World War been declared by the time you’re finally reading these words – but still, I think it’s wise advice to live by. Let’s try and be […]
Este coração é de banana são tomé, aquela roxa. Mas qualquer uma serve. Já expliquei como preparar o coração com suas flores aqui. Basta ir desfolhando e tirando as flores. Mas, claro, você pode também fatiar o coração inteiro sem separar as flores. É que elas são especiais, tem formato interessante e absorvem o sabor dos outros ingredientes de qualquer prato com temperos marcantes. Mesmo depois de aferventadas (duas ou três vezes em água já quente com gotas de limão), ainda ficam amargas e um pouco tânicas, mas quando misturadas com outros ingredientes não percebemos nada. Ficam bem delicadas, incorporando o sabor e aumentando o volume do prato, conferindo uma textura de cogumelos ou algo assim. Por isto, desta vez, pensei em misturá-las com cogumelos, se beneficiando assim do sabor e da consistência. quinta-feira, 5 de maio de 2022
Neide Rigo refogou as cebolas em um pouco de manteiga e juntou cogumelos shitake fatiados, um pouco de shimeji desmembrados e as flores de um coração. Ela mexendo sempre, em fogo alto, até o cogumelo amolecer. Juntou um pouco de cebolinha picada, shoyu e um pouco de mirim. Assim que a cebolinha murchou, Rigo apagou o fogo e Nhac! Com arroz branco desta vez.
The night after participating in a virtual political convention to choose candidates to endorse for state races, I awoke from a dream. The details remain a bit foggy, but I remember being in a car that I couldn’t steer. It was racing in never-ending circles, seemingly controlled by remote external forces. There was no clear purpose or destination in sight. Just unending circular movement in a dark, barren, asphalt-covered landscape. Voices from the Margins – 28/04/2022
It reminded me of the convention and my recent, though distant, involvement in the political process. The convention itself felt unwelcoming, focused on rules and the need to appear inclusive by making meaningful dialogue impossible. In fairness, though, I doubt there’s a way to effectively hold a Zoom meeting with 300-plus people, some of whom were seasoned political operatives with clear agendas, and many of whom were strangers and newcomers. All had different perspectives without any opportunities to connect. We were all just tiny faces and names on a screen. Those who jumped through the hoops to speak rarely seemed to care about focusing on things that would matter to the group or the state overall.
I couldn’t stay until the end, but there was one hopeful candidate with clear visions about what needed to be done – protecting clean water, building jobs through sustainable alternative energy initiatives, and supporting workers’ rights. She spoke with passion about hopeful possibilities and highlighted a successful track record for building necessary relationships to overcome political divides. Fortunately, two-thirds of the conference delegates voted to endorse her as the party candidate for state senate, the necessary threshold for approval of her candidacy.
I understand why many people are unhappy with politics and politicians. Why shouldn’t they be? I just wish more people knew at least a little more about US and global history before voting! And a little bit more about the dire situations the world is facing on every level right now from sources other than mainstream or social media. Maybe then people would be able to stand with others who stand for something positive, hopeful, and worthwhile. Until then, I fear we’ll continue going in circles as the world falls apart around us, unable to collectively act on issues that will affect generations yet to come.
I have noticed that community meetings are not really designed as listening sessions or opportunities to create a collective sense of dignity and belonging. Yet the choices are clear. One is the world we have now, where people are programmed to continue in a perpetual winner-take-all tug-of-war to impose their ideologies on others in two party systems that pit the 99 percent against each other for petty reasons. The other is one where the 99 percent work together to build a world where life, love, and laughter matter more than power, money, and things. Maybe then we could finally set a course forward toward a kinder, more peaceful world and steer our collective journey in the same direction…
A arte fascina, divide e dá sempre origem a especulações. Algumas das obras-primas mais famosas da Terra parecem ser muito mais do que apenas retratos ou imagens de cenas bíblicas bem conhecidas. Elas escondem mensagens, códigos e símbolos secretos com os quais os artistas às vezes expressam o monstruoso, o misterioso e o segredo.
PARA RACHAR A GASOLINA, EMPRESTAR A PRANCHA, RECOMENDAR UM DISCO, DAR CARONA PRA FESTA, PASSAR COLA, CAMINHAR NO SHOPPING, SEGURAR A BARRA. TODAS AS ALTERNATIVAS ESTÃO CORRETAS, PORÉM ISSO NÃO BASTA PARA GUARDAR UM AMIGO DO LADO ESQUERDO DO PEITO.
MILAN KUNDERA, ESCRITOR TCHECO, ESCREVEU EM SEU ÚLTIMO LIVRO, “A IDENTIDADE”, QUE A AMIZADE É INDISPENSÁVEL PARA O BOM FUNCIONAMENTO DA MEMÓRIA E PARA A INTEGRIDADE DO PRÓPRIO EU. CHAMA OS AMIGOS DE TESTEMUNHAS DO PASSADO E DIZ QUE ELES SÃO NOSSO ESPELHO, QUE ATRAVÉS DELES PODEMOS NOS OLHAR. VAI ALÉM: DIZ QUE TODA AMIZADE É UMA ALIANÇA CONTRA A ADVERSIDADE, ALIANÇA SEM A QUAL O SER HUMANO FICARIA DESARMADO CONTRA SEUS INIMIGOS.
VERDADE VERDADEIRA. AMIGOS RECENTES CUSTAM A PERCEBER ESSA ALIANÇA, NÃO VALORIZAM AINDA O QUE ESTÁ SENDO CONSTRUÍDO. SÃO AMIZADES NÃO TESTADAS PELO TEMPO, NÃO SE SABE SE ENFRENTARÃO COM SOLIDEZ AS TEMPESTADES OU SE SERÃO VARRIDOS NUMA CHUVA DE VERÃO. VEREMOS.
UM AMIGO NÃO RACHA APENAS A GASOLINA: RACHA LEMBRANÇAS, CRISES DE CHORO, EXPERIÊNCIAS. RACHA A CULPA, RACHA SEGREDOS.
UM AMIGO NÃO EMPRESTA APENAS A PRANCHA. EMPRESTA O VERBO, EMPRESTA O OMBRO, EMPRESTA O TEMPO, EMPRESTA O CALOR E A JAQUETA.
UM AMIGO NÃO RECOMENDA APENAS UM DISCO. RECOMENDA CAUTELA, RECOMENDA UM EMPREGO, RECOMENDA UM PAÍS.
UM AMIGO NÃO DÁ CARONA APENAS PRA FESTA. TE LEVA PRO MUNDO DELE, E TOPA CONHECER O TEU.
UM AMIGO NÃO PASSA APENAS COLA. PASSA CONTIGO UM APERTO, PASSA JUNTO O RÉVEILLON.
UM AMIGO NÃO CAMINHA APENAS NO SHOPPING. ANDA EM SILÊNCIO NA DOR, ENTRA CONTIGO EM CAMPO, SAI DO FRACASSO AO TEU LADO.
UM AMIGO NÃO SEGURA A BARRA, APENAS. SEGURA A MÃO, A AUSÊNCIA, SEGURA UMA CONFISSÃO, SEGURA O TRANCO, O PALAVRÃO, SEGURA O ELEVADOR.
DUAS DÚZIAS DE AMIGOS ASSIM NINGUÉM TEM. SE TIVER UM, AMÉM.
