by (Justin Kander's) report summary by GLP

The 182 page report titled "Cannabis for the Treatment of Cancer: The Anticancer Activity of Phytocannabinoids and Endocannabinoids" by Justin Kander and edited by Dennis Hill reveal detailed descriptions of studies where cannabis stopped cancer cells from surviving, spreading and metastasizing. Included are also personal testimonies of patients that have used cannabis to treat their cancer.
The U.S. government (DEA/FDA) ignored this critical information of cannabis killing cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. Instead under Attorney General Jeff Sessions they continues to publically vilify cannabis, thereby denying cancer patients this potentially life saving medicine in many states without medical cannabis laws.
Despite the adversarial tone of some in the current U.S. government, the scientists and doctors who rediscovered this (was known in 1974 then suppressed by Nixon) wish that the world knows about their results. Any challenges to the credibility of their studies should come in scientific format, NOT with false moralizing non-scientific statements such as "no good people smoke marijuana" coming from AG Sessions. If these sorts of statements cause even ONE person with cancer to avoid cannabis then Sessions could be adversely effecting their outcome and should be held liable for contributing to their demise.
The Green Liberty Party platform includes making this research known to the world so that cancer patients have other options including medical cannabis available in ALL 50 states and throughout the entire Earth.
Here's some definitions to help with clarity;
phytocannabinoid = cannabinoid created by and found in vegetative plants such as Cannabis sativa.
endogenous cannabinoid (endocannabinoid) = cannabinoid created and found internally in human/animal body, part of endocannabinoid system.
Summary of intro to report;
There are millions of cancer deaths worldwide every year despite access to conventional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. However, an accumulation of research has demonstrated that phytocannabinoids from whole plant cannabis can actually reduce cancer cells in the body while leaving healthy cells intact. It is uncertain whether certain types of cancers will respond to various cannabinoids, though it is generally true that cannabis has an anti-cancer effect in addition to combating nausea from chemotherapy.
The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids and enzymes that work together to maintain homeostasis or balance in the body as environmental conditions change. An example is that the ECS will release endogenous cannabinoids following a head injury and resulting brain trauma to prevent damage to vital cells. It is now becoming evident that the ECS protects against cancer also, and that additional phytocannabinoids from cannabis assist the ECS in fighting cancer.
Apoptosis (programmed cell death) is the most powerful way that both endogenous and phytocannabinoids protect against cancer. Most cells will automatically go through apoptosis once they become old and damaged, though cancer cells grow abnormally and do not. The phtyocannabinoids from cannabis plants cause the cancer cells to turn on their apoptosis programming, thus killing the cancer cells in the process. Healthy cells remain undisturbed and functional.
In addition to causing cancer cells to self-destruct through apoptosis, cannabis also stops tumors from forming their own blood vessels (anti-angiogenic), slows cancer cell reproduction (anti-prolific), and stops cancer from spreading within local tissues (anti-invasive) and moving to other tissues (anti-metastatic).

Commentary from Green Liberty Party - U.S. Presidential candidate Mark Paul Miller;
This is great news for anyone with cancer and their friends and family, though the question remains; Why isn't this potentially life saving information about cannabis killing cancer more widely known?
Perhaps the U.S. DEA wishes to maintain their illogical claims "cannabis is dangerous and has no medical benefit" because they are unwilling to admit to error? Is the media playing the DEA's lapdog?
Are the government forces of "protection" not able to realize that they made a mistake when it comes to cannabis? It could be true that in their overzealous standards of drug enforcement against cannabis the DEA has prevented millions of people from accessing a safe plant medicine against deadly cancer! In net effect the DEA prohibition of cannabis has resulted in many needless deaths and suffering from cancer. If the DEA cannot be bothered to read a new science report showing cannabis kills cancer, maybe a class action lawsuit charging them with negligent homicide of cancer patients by preventing access to a known safe medicine will send a stronger message.
What about pharmaceutical corporations being threatened by cannabis becoming the preferred treatment for cancer instead of deadly chemotherapy and damaging radiation? Surely their profits will decrease over the next decade as cannabis treatments for cancer prove successful at a greater rate. That would be reason enough for pharma to threaten media networks with pulling their commercials should the newscasters dare expose this research.
Either reason could be true, so it is up to the independent media once again to spread the truth and cover under-reported stories.
The GLP position of Presidential candidate Mark Paul Miller is for complete legalization (taxation + regulation) of cannabis for both recreational and medical purposes and that ALL verified cancer patients are aware of and have access to free (government grown) cannabis for treatment of their cancer if they choose to.
Cannabis kills cancer

Thank you so much for sharing this! I was quite happily surprised when I did my daily "Cannabis cancer" search on Google News and this came up. Kind of surreal! Indeed, the evidence showing that cannabis fights cancer in humans is overwhelming. I encourage curious individuals to read the book, at the very least the anecdotal section, to see just how strong the evidence is and how deep this goes. Feel free to contact me at thehempsolution [at] gmail.com.
NOTE; It seems that in some cases taking "a few day? breaks" from cannabis may help make the plant more effective. Similar concept to increasing physical tolerance as more is consumed. It seems like few days with none and restart again for greater effect.
pg. 40; "An interesting observation was the benefit of a 'recovery phase' for increasing cytotoxicity. The researchers observed that prolonged cannabis treatment had a cytostatic effect rather than cytotoxic. However, by stopping cannabis treatment after several days of administration, the cell cycle resumes and the [cancer] cells die."

Trying not to be confusing, but that was Mark Paul Miller of the GLP, not Justin Kander's added "NOTE". Don't want to put words in someone's mouth. Should also mention that page 40 is specific to leukemia and lymphoma studies, so it does NOT NECCESARILY APPLY to the OTHER CANCERS!! Though maybe it does apply, the point is that nobody knows that for sure. It makes sense in the concept of general effectiveness and tolerance from prolonged usage.
There remains a great deal of future research to be done, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Be Aware that anyone using cannabis alone is in true pioneer (bioneer) territory, and nobody is saying that cannabis is a miracle cure.
There are two doctors (Dr. Donald Abramson in SF and Dr. Lester Grinspoon at UCLA) who have some experience with cannabis as treatment for cancer.
Mark's uncertain comment;
