Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

DEA nearly ready to decide on rescheduling marijuana

Our fucking failures of stroke associations should have been on the forefront of this push providing tons of information on its usefulness for stroke. But looking at the websites; NSA, ASA, WSO, there is nothing on this. 
My 13 reasons for marijuana use post-stroke.

Despite their claim to decide by the first half of 2016, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration is still in the process of considering whether or not to reschedule marijuana.
The DEA is currently working through an eight-factor analysis to change marijuana’s current Schedule I classification, reports the Cannabist.
“But I can’t give you a time frame as to when we may announce a decision,” said Russ Baer, an agency spokesman, to the Cannabist on Tuesday. “We’re closer than we were a month ago. It’s a very deliberate process.”
Downgrading marijuana to a lesser schedule won’t necessarily help towards legalization, but would open up restrictions to research the plant for medical and scientific purposes.
Marijuana is currently listed as a Schedule I substance that’s considered to be dangerous with no medical value, despite the fact that over half of U.S. states have legalized marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes.
DEA officials made their intentions to consider rescheduling marijuana in a letter sent to U.S. lawmakers earlier this year in April.
“DEA understands the widespread interest in the prompt resolution to these petitions and hopes to release its determination in the first half of 2016,” the agency wrote in the 25-page letter.
