Just what we need - a bunch of high motherfarkers falling off Beacon Rock. That trail is sketchy enough without weed...

Sounds like a creative way to get a visit from the DEA. They barely tolerate medical marijuana. How hard do you think they will come down on any business that sets up shop to facilitate recreational use? Also, how do you supply a business like that and stay under the state possession limits? Have fun in prison.

"Through many detailed experiments, handily summarised in this recent article in the journal Nature Reviews Cancer, scientists have discovered that various cannabinoids (both natural and synthetic) have a wide range of effects in the lab, including:

* Triggering cell death, through a mechanism called apoptosis
* Stopping cells from dividing
* Preventing new blood vessels from growing into tumours
* Reducing the chances of cancer cells spreading through the body, by stopping cells from moving or invading neighbouring tissue
* Speeding up the cell's internal 'waste disposal machine' - a process known as autophagy - which can lead to cell death

Sadly it appears it's strictly the cannaboid molecules the brainiacs are studying. Not the smoking, ingesting, whathaveyou. Still promising, me thinks.

I thought it had pretty good safety precautions in place both underfoot and in terms of railings, but yeah it is steep as hell and morons will fall off if high when climbing.

Climbed it last summer; one of many awesome things on that trip. I wish I could afford to go back every couple of years.

It's still illegal to grow and distribute marijuana until the state sets up licensing and taxation guidelines, so for the next year he'll need a BYOBud policy rather than including it in the cost.

Well, except that his marijuana stances are one of several things actual liberals (as opposed to the centrists that compose most of the Democratic party) criticize him on fairly frequently. Y'know, kinda blowing the "Obamessiah" meme out of the water in the process?

/But please, thrill us with your acumen

But claims that this body of preclinical research is solid "proof" that cannabis or cannabinoids can cure cancer is highly misleading to patients and their families, and builds a false picture of the state of progress in this area.

For example, some researchers have found that although high doses of THC can kill cancer cells, they also harm crucial blood vessel cells, although this may help their anti-cancer effect by preventing blood vessels growing into a tumour. And under some circumstances, cannabinoids can actually encourage cancer cells to grow, or have different effects depending on the dosage and levels of cannabinoid receptors present on the cancer cells. [Edited for clarity and to add reference - KA 27/07/12]

Furthermore, cancer cells can develop resistance to cannabinoids and start growing again, although this can be got round by blocking a certain molecular pathway in the cells known as ALK.

The biggest issue is that there isn't enough evidence to show that they can treat cancer in people, although research is still ongoing around the world.

Well, if it's a corporation, then obviously the corporation is simply fined, since you can't arrest a corporation. Hey, it worked for the bankers.
