Even as the federal government calls for more research into medical marijuana, it has refused to study it's own patients, who receive monthly shipments of Cannabis though the I.N.D.(Investigational New Drug Program). One patient, appearing at the 2002 Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics where this series was presented, had received 300 "joints" per month for 20 years.
Quantifiable and assayed for THC, the government-grown marijuana is low quality, but has suceeded in treating the conditions for which it was prescribed, with little apparent harmful effects.
Patients Out of Time, hosts of the conference, knew this opportunity for good science shouldn't be missed, so it enlisted the help of doctors and researchers to perform physical and pyschological tests on four of the legal patients: Elvy Musikka; Irvin Rosenfeld; George McMahon and a MS patient.
Dr. Ethan Russo, co-ordinator of the study, first presents patient demographics; medical conditions; and dosage levels, then lists tests performed, including:
MRI scans; chest x-rays and pulminory function tests; neuro-pychological exams; endocrine and immune system tests.
The entire one hour presentation from which Part 1 is edited can be viewed at:
including the "Beck Depression Inventory", which showed a remarkable lack of clinical depression in the legal marijuana patients(considering their serious medical conditions),as Dr. Russo challenges the "attitude among gov't officials that euphoria is a bad thing".
Three of the legal patients tell their personal stories at the Portland conference:
Introduced by Al Byrne and Mary Lynn Mathre, founders of Patients Out of Time. Please visit us at
