MAD COWS AND CANNABIS
A report by Drs S Dirikoc, SA Priola, M Marella, N Zsuerger and J Chabry in the Journal of Neuroscience 2007;27 (36): 9537-9544 asserts that cannabidiol (CBD) may prevent development of prion diseases, including bovine spongiforme encephalopathy (BSE), better known as mad cow disease.
Should that be so, it may be that BSE, which takes years to develop in humans, is on its way to turning everyone mad...except those who have been taking the antidote.
As a public health service, Free Rob is offering to give away cannabis at Speakers Corner tomorrow (29 September) at high noon.
