SORT BY Relevancy
Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
Yet this plant is listed Schedule I under the Controlled Substances Act
The following findings are required for drugs to be placed in this schedule:
The drug or other substance has a high potential for abuse.
The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.
Except as specifically authorized, it is illegal for any person:
to manufacture, distribute, or dispense, or possess with intent to manufacture, distribute, or dispense, a controlled substance; or
to create, distribute, or dispense, or possess with intent to distribute or dispense, a counterfeit substance.
The Hypocrisy is outrageous!

Steven Finkbeiner, MD, PhD
Director, Taube-Koret Center for
Huntington's Disease Research
Senior Investigator and Associate Director,
Gladstone Institute of neurological Disease
Professor of Neurology and Physiology,
University of California, San Francisco
Areas of Investigation
Research in his laboratory focuses on molecular mechanisms of plasticity and neurodegeneration. A long- term goal of his research is to understand how neuronal activity elicits changes in gene expression that are important for learning and memory and aims to understand how an inherited genetic mutation leads to neuronal dysfunction and degeneration in Huntington's disease (HD).
Dr. Finkbeiner will be with us to give us his research updates.
C-terminus of the NMDA receptor couple Ca2+influx
Gene targets of the NMDA receptor
Subsynaptic protein translation in learning and memory
Polyglutamine expansion degeneration in neurons
Ubiquitination and proteasome function in
Normal function of huntingtin
Predictors of neurodegeneration
