Besides this anecdote, there's some evidence that cannabinoids can have effects on a pheochromocytoma.

Cytoskeletal organization following cannabinoid treatment in undifferentiated and differentiated PC12 cells.

Cannabinoid enantiomer action on the cytoarchitecture.

Donno -- It was probably the Peyote...

Either way, it was the culture of drugs that put him in prison. I wonder what other banned drugs they found in his house..

Don't be hoodwinked.

Not smoking dope isn't making this guy vomit blood or whatever claim they are making.

As far as the PC12 cells. PC12 is a common cell line used in labs. The same studies are and can be done in other cells and affect on microtubules is not specific to PC12.

These guys think we was born in a barn and they are only interested in the medicinal uses of dope.

I guess peyote or mushrooms will cure his "cancer" too.

Brian Doherty is a senior editor of Reason and author of This Is Burning Man,

It's interesting how the 60's drug sub-culture/new left tries to pass itself off over the years. Now they're going for the Reasoned libertarian scam.

"Kubby was acquitted of the pot charges arising from the raid, but convicted in 2001 for some peyote buttons and a psychedelic mushroom the cops also found."

So what is the peyote and mushrooms for? Legal dementia?

A logical and rational layperson could posit that a lifetime of multi-drug use is the root cause of his many physical ailmnents.

No, it was actually a hung jury and a mistrial.

I'm 100% for legalizing marijuana and treating it similar to the way we treat alcohol. I think our current marijuana laws are stupid. Still, I have a hard time getting worked up over this man's fate. He was growing way more pot than he possibly could have consumed himself. He knew he was breaking the law. He got off easy with a 120 sentence. Why doesn't he quit his whining and "take his medicine."
