Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been embarrassing himself lately, especially when it comes to cannabis. When he’s not trying to personally prosecute those who choose to use medical marijuana, he’s forgetting important details during testimonies.
USA Today said about Sessions testimony: Tuesday’s much-anticipated testimony by Attorney General Jeff Sessions before a Senate panel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 campaign lacked the high drama of James Comey’s appearance last week. Sessions often came across as forgetful, testy and defensive, his testimony sprinkled with the “do not recalls” that reek of the lawyerly way public officials often evade accusations in Washington.
Well, here’s a suggestion for Mr. Sessions. Cannabis. Get some cannabis. The very “drug” Sessions hates with a violent passion may help him remember and reverse the effects of aging on the brain. Cannabis has been known to help in the treatment of dementia. During a recently published study conducted on mice, scientists made a bold discovery.
The quantity of THC administered was small, 3 mg per kilogram of body weight per day. This was too low of a dose to intoxicate the animals, but the researchers wanted to see what the effects were on the mice’s endocannabinoid system. This is the system of receptors in the brain and nervous system that help regulate appetite, mood, and memory, and which also respond to THC. The results were nothing short of astounding, especially in the elderly mice.
“The treatment completely reversed the loss of performance in the old animals,” Zimmer said. “It looked as though the THC treatment turned back the molecular clock.”
How ironic that cannabis could be used to help Sessions medically when he “can’t recall” and wants to personally prosecute those who use marijuana medically. Perhaps the Attorney General should consider using cannabis to boost his memory. Perhaps then he would know why others seek marijuana for medical use.
In cognition tests with control animals using a water maze to assess spatial awareness, object recognition, and partner recognition, the young mice outscored their mature and elderly counterparts, as was expected. But when the animals were given the same dose of THC, the mature and elderly mice vastly boosted their performance in the learning and memory tests, doing as well as young, drug-free animals in the control group.
Give some cannabis a try, Sessions. For all of us who have suffered listening to you speak about marijuana and “not remember” during a testimony.
