He ran a flight simulator for the military in dc after wwii. He had Goldwater and Jimmy stewart go through the simulators among others to keep their flight hours up. Donnie was 5'6" and tough as nails. I've been retired 6 years now and I got on the company site and looked up the seniority list and he was still working. He's probably 92ish. I've never seen a greedier man. But he gave as well. I think he was afraid to retire. His granddaughter did pretty well. His grandson was in a death metal band and bummed money from him. I got stories.

John hopkins ran a covid pandemic simulation in october 19. They now have zero trustworthyness. And google? Again not to be trusted.
Trust me on this, most of the info you receive is fake and or is put out simply to further someones agenda.
Im pretty sure big pharma dont like the profits they are now losing. You do the math.
And if you wanna just take a step back and think about it. How would they have accurate data on this? To know this you would need to have a very large control group ,do all the scans, give them x amount of cannabis for decades , make sure they didnt abuse any other drugs in that time and then scan them and compare them to an equally large comparison group. And again make sure they dont do any other drugs in that time.

.think that happened?

New study showing benefits of CBD on Alzheimer's. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/33612548/ I think it's a good idea to smoke strains with either a naturally occurring small amount of CBD or to just grow a CBD plant once per year and add a little to your bowl once per day. I'm convinced that we get the most benefit and least harm from ingesting the entire spectrum of cannabinoids.

Still sucking on my poisoned vape of CBD. Not so much alone. Add some THC and it works.

Increased effect through reciprocity is far beyond most folks wisdom.

Smoke more people. Peace and calm to all. LOL.

I would take it more seriously if Amen wasn't involved. Looking back (the study is three years old at this point) it seems fairly clear all of the brain scans involved were done by Amen, at Amen's clinics. Amen appears to have been widely criticized by the medical establishment for misusing brain scans in diagnosis, and generally appears to be a quack (a Washpo article quotes someone as saying he's a modern day phrenologist).
I had no idea Dr. Amen has been misusing brain scan diagnosis. Do you have a legit site that states this? I got this link from a friend. I told him this is the first time I've seen this and wanted to ask you guys if it's a legit study.

Just a thought? How about worrying about the grossly disproportionate amount of proven neural inhibitors and trans mutaters we are legally fed by FDA & USDA regulations.

If you g-search Amen Clinic it'll bring up a wikipedia entry, but also the Washington Post article I referenced. It's a study that appears to have been published in a peer reviewed journal... I wouldn't dismiss it outright.

Also, keep in mind journalists sometimes cast academic journal articles as claiming a certain causal relationship when the actual journal article draws an association and calls for more research.

You're talking to someone who spends most of their time in the Politics section. Spreading misinformation just comes naturally to them.

Can you share a link to a legit source that says this?

From the wiki page.

Harriet Hall has written critically about SPECT scans in articles for Quackwatch and for the Science-Based Medicine website.[18][19] Hall accuses the clinics of misrepresenting an unproven treatment as effective, of concealing important warning information, and of creating false hopes by promising things that can't be done.[18] She dismisses the scans as "pretty pictures" and says that although Amen himself seems to believe in his approach, "humans are very good at fooling themselves".[18]
