Aiken NORML

Aiken NORML National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws
(11)

Our organization centers on the education to the public and elected officials about the benefits of medical, social and industrial cannabis legalization. Through education and awareness, Aiken NORML establishes the public's ability to empower themselves in the legislative processes. Lastly, we act as a vessel of communication for the voices that feel they are unable to be heard.

Mission: Aiken NORML's mission is to become a public resource of information for the community on cannabis legislative efforts, benefits of a legalized industry and to empower the people to engage elected official and public servants to repeal the prohibition of a responsible, regulated adult use and medical industry.

Some states may be moving to legalize marijuana, but extreme racial disparities in arrests remain high. In some places, they're getting worse. The MORE Act would fix that. Help build support and send a message to your representative.

“...chemotherapy has been looked at with a skeptical eye, had this been studied sooner, it is easy to see how this method of treatment cannot distinguish between healthy cells and cancerous cells, therefore there are more ideal patients for this method of treatment and less ideal patients. The study published by the Lancet shows how the cell destroying property of chemo can eventually lead to death as there aren’t enough healthy cells to survive.”

“Alcohol is good for you. Pot is not good for you. And in fact it is very cancerous. Now they’re getting these young kids coming in and having heart attack at young ages. And it’s because they’re potheads.

And, by the way, at least they’ll save me money if they’ll just go ahead and die, but they rarely just go ahead and die”

"Earlier this year, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Addiction (NIAAA) conducted a study on the prevalence of “marijuana use disorder” or “Cannabis use disorder” (CUD). The study revealed that up to 6 million Americans – roughly 2.5% of the adult U.S. population – may be living with this “condition.” That sounds alarming at first, but there’s a major issue with the NIAAA’s findings: the currently accepted definition of CUD, as it exists in the DSM-V, has become so generalized that it can be easily over-diagnosed. By the current definition, nearly anyone using medical marijuana would fit the diagnosis, which is clearly not appropriate."

"President Donald Trump signed the 2018 farm bill on Thursday afternoon, which legalized hemp — a variety of cannabis that does not produce the psychoactive component of marijuana — paving the way to legitimacy for an agricultural sector that has been operating on the fringe of the law."

Why Cannabigerol, or CBG, Could Be the Next Lucrative Cannabinoid - The Hemp Mag

"Generally, CBG and its precursor cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) do not stay around for long in hemp plants because they are very quick to combine with THCa synthase, CBDa synthase, or CBCa synthase to become THC, CBD, or CBC. However, some cannabis plants contain a genetic mutation which stops their cannabinoid processing at CBG, allowing for the breeding of CBG-rich plants."

While the hemp-derived cannabinoid market is currently focused on breeding CBD-rich plants, some growers are already looking toward a future filled with demand for other cannabinoids — especially CBG. Until 2009, all anyone cared about in cannabis was THC and hemp found itself relegated for use on...

The map reveals the genes that control the creation of THC and CBD are surrounded by garbled DNA that is associated with long-ago viral infection. Viruses will change the DNA of a host in order to continue making copies of themselves, which is exactly what happened to the cannabis plant millions of years ago. That “junk DNA” spread into areas of the gene that were responsible for creating cannabinoids and altered which chemicals it was creating.

Patients with several different forms of cancer have been able to use this oil topically and internally to force cancerous cells to kill themselves. RSO has often had a higher success rate than chemotherapy and radiation therapies. While these traditional therapies destroy cancer cells, they also destroy healthy tissue indiscriminately. RSO kills only cancer cells and leaves healthy tissue intact giving the patient better chances of recovery.

TODAY is the voter registration deadline day in SC! If YOU are not registered yet, go do it NOW! Your vote CAN make a BIG difference to help unseat a sitting prohibitionist Governor! McMaster is among only 5% of US Citizens opposed to Medical Marijuana (2% unsure). Help the 93% IN FAVOR by voting for Smith on Nov. 6th!
I just wanted to share this with Aiken NORML... I attended the Dem Convention for Aiken County this weekend and proposed a resolution to support the decriminalization of marijuana in SC. The resolution passed, so it will be raised as a resolution for the state Dem Party to consider. I will go to the state Dem convention and lobby for it. These resolutions are non-binding, but keeping pressure on major political parties is one way to advance the cause.
