Marijuana is back in the headlines due to new discoveries about its medicinal uses. Dr. Wai Liu discusses his findings in the Huffington Post “Cannabinoids have a complex action; it hits a number of important processes that cancers need to survive.” Dr. Liu experimented on leukemia cells with six different cannabinoids and found that cannabis derived substances could stop the growth of the leukemia cells.
We asked 1World members to share their opinion on the viability of marijuana derived drugs. The results are quite interesting. While most members did not think pot could cure cancer, voters who had more education (50% of post-graduates) and considered themselves to be Democrats (67% of Democrats) were much more likely to believe that marijuana derived compounds could cure cancer. In contrast, Republicans and Independents said they did not think pot could cure cancer (100% and 72% respectively).
Currently, only two states have legalized marijuana use, while over half the states still consider pot use to be a criminal offense. Most of those states are considered to be “red” states such as Texas, Florida, and Georgia. It appears that there is a great divide between Democrats and Republicans on the issue of marijuana.
