Marijuana is safer than aspirin

Dr. Leslie Liversen of Oxford‘s Department of Pharmacology states: Marijuana is safer than aspirin and can be taken for longer without serious side effects. This and other interesting things can be learned from the book “The Science of Marijuana” where he debunks many myths about marijuana, which are not compatible with research, such as strong addiction, a link to mental illness or infertility.

How is marijuana safer than aspirin?

Their studies showed that the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), has great potential and can serve as a safe and effective drug for treating severe pain or AIDS. It is believed to be a safe drug, the use of which does not lead to cancer, brain damage or mental illness. “Marijuana does not cause structural damage to the brain; there is no evidence of long-term cognitive damage after stopping the drug,” says Leslie Iversen. The author also confirms that no one has ever died from an overdose from marijuana and that it has been used for thousands of years. For this reason alone it can be said that marijuana is safer than aspirin, which can be fatal for some allergy sufferers.

Even seemingly harmless medications like aspirin and its anti-inflammatory compounds are unsafe. “Thousands of people die every year due to the tendency to cause stomach bleeding.” THC also has 20 times the anti-inflammatory potential of aspirin and 2 times the potency of hydrocortisone. Many studies support the safety and effectiveness of marijuana for medical purposes. The time has come to stop denying marijuana and allow its use for medical purposes.

In the book The Science of Marijuana, Leslie Iversen explains the remarkable progress that has been made in scientific research on cannabis with the discovery of specific receptors and the existence of cannabis-like substances naturally present in the brain. Dr. Iversen provides an objective and up-to-date assessment of the scientific basis for the medical use of cannabis and the risks this may cause. The recreational use of the drug and how it affects users is described along with some predictions about how attitudes towards cannabis may change in the future.
