World: Three quarters of doctors give a prescription for cannabis to a patient with advanced cancer pain

Three-quarters of the physicians who responded to a survey about medical cannabis said they would approve the drug to help ease the pain of an elderly woman with advanced breast cancer. In the February issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, doctors were faced with a case as well as arguments for and against the use of medical cannabis. Physicians were then asked to decide whether or not approve a prescription for this patient. The case was presented to physicians Marilyn, a woman of 68 years with breast cancer that has spread to his lungs and spine. She was undergoing chemotherapy, and said he had little appetite and a lot of pain. She had tried several medications to relieve pain, including opioid oxycodone. She lives in a state where the medical use of cannabis is legal, and asked his doctor for a prescription.

Seventy-six percent of the 1, 446 physicians who responded said they would give the woman a prescription for medical marijuana. The doctors were from 72 countries. However, despite the overall participation, the vast majority of the votes (1, 063) came from the United States, Canada and Mexico. Outside North America, the largest share was Latin America and Europe, and the overall results were similar to those of North America, with 78% of voters who support the medical use of cannabis.

USA: Illinois will probably become the next state to legalize the medical use of cannabis.
On May 17, the Illinois Senate voted to approve the use of cannabis for medicinal purposes, that signing the bill would make it the second most populous state in the country after California to allow the use of the drug for medicinal purposes. The bill passed by the House of Illinois in April, now moves to the desk of Gov. Pat Quinn to await his signature. Quinn said that is sympathetic to the bill, especially in benefit wounded veterans.

A local training institute. Most have sliding scales, or, moderatly prices hourly rates. Many institutes have a orientation towards a certain framework (Jungian, Freudian, Dynamic, ext), so you may want to do a little research first.
FYI, institutes train those who possess a psychiatry, psychology, medical, or social work degree (well, there may be a FEW exceptions to this rule). Your trainee will not be completely inexperienced, merely an individual who is working on advanced training in a particuliar area.

I have recently read on Craigslist a lot about Iams animal testing.
So I wrote them an email.
I just received this reply:
Dear Caring Consumer:
We are sending you this message because you have contacted us in the past in
regards to our Research Policy.
We are pleased to announce that we have established an International Animal Care
Advisory Board to evaluate our industry-leading research policy and advise us on
new research alternatives that provide for advanced levels of dog and cat care.
The Iams International Animal Care Advisory Board, an independent group,
currently consists of seven members, representing various disciplines and fields
of study, including veterinary medicine, animal husbandry, behavior, welfare,
and ethics

That's a huge %... kinda scary...

24 of 30 Cloned Cows Healthy, Normal - Report
By Lisa Richwine
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Twenty-four of 30 cloned cows were alive and apparently normal after one to four years, scientists reported on Thursday, saying the cows were living proof that cloning can produce healthy adult animals.
Other researchers have warned that all animal clones probably have some abnormality, a major reason the technique should not be applied to people.
A report in the journal Science, however, said a battery of tests showed the 24 cows at Massachusetts-based cloning company Advanced Cell Technology had normal appearances, physiology and behavior
