Study: Marijuana Can Prevent Protein That Causes Alzheimer’s From Developing

Recently, a new study came out confirming what most scientists believed to be true for quite awhile: the ability for marijuana to prevent someone from having Alzheimer’s symptoms. The study found that one of the active compounds in marijuana, better known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has the ability to prevent the development of a protein known as amyloid. Amyloid is believed to contribute to the creation of Alzheimer’s. According to this recent study, the THC attaches itself to neuroreceptors in the brain as it passes through the bloodstream. The attachment of the THC to the receptors in the brain help prevent amyloid plaque from building up, which is believed to be one of the main causes behind Alzheimer’s.

Many studies have been made trying to prove how marijuana could be used to treat Alzheimer’s and other neuro-based diseases, but this study is one of the first to explain why marijuana could be used. Typically, doctors are allowed to prescribe marijuana for serious illnesses in the United States, but as more studies such as this one come to the surface, the idea of prescribing cannabis as a preventive treatment will have to be considered.

"Mr. Luciano freed my mind of anxiety right from the start. A consummate professional. He explained all options on defense and guided me to the one I followed with excellent results. Best of all, he is reasonable. Relax and let his knowledge (the magic) work."

From a former client

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
