Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:
Yeah… You DO Have The Power….
If the Tenth Amendment applies to marijuana, why can’t ALL medicine be a states’ rights issue? Where the federal government’s rights end and states’ rights begin has become a gray area over the last few decades. The issue of medical marijuana has made this abundantly clear, as the feds continue to butt heads with states that have legalized cannabis for medical and/or recreational use. This is where the Tenth Amendment should come into play: As Town Hall contends, the federal government doesn’t have the specific authority to prohibit marijuana – or any medicine, for that matter. As Amendment X declares: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people. In other words, because the Constitution does not explicitly grant the federal government the power to regulate substances, that power should be in the hands of the states. While federal law may be “superior” to state laws, the fact remains that many people question if the feds have the right to regulate such things.

Probiotics And The Gut – What Do We Know?
Are probiotics safe? Study shows we really don’t know People widely assume that probiotics and prebiotics are safe, but researchers in France said Monday that there’s very little research to show that’s true. There’s also sparse data on whether the products work in the way people believe they do, other researchers noted. Despite the growing market for probiotics, evidence that they are ether safe or effective is hard to come by. Probiotics — products that deliver allegedly helpful bacteria to the gut — have been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Yogurt is one example, with its heavy dose of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Prebiotics are similar products that aim to nurture and cultivate so-called good bacteria. The growing body of research on the microbiome shows that the collection of bacteria, yeasts and perhaps viruses that live in and on the body definitely affect human health.
Autism risk determined by health of mom’s gut, research reveals The risk of developing autism-spectrum disorders is determined by the mother’s microbiome—the collection of microorganisms that naturally live inside us—during pregnancy, new research from the University of Virginia School of Medicine suggests. The work raises the possibility that preventing forms of autism could be as simple as an expectant mom modifying her diet or taking custom probiotics. Further, the UVA scientists were able to use their discovery to prevent the development of autism-like neurodevelopmental disorders in lab mice. They found they could halt the development of such disorders by blocking a particular inflammatory molecule produced by the immune system. Targeting this molecule, interleukin-17a, offers another potential avenue for preventing autism in people, the researchers say. They caution, however, that this approach would be much more complex because of the risk of side effects. “We determined that the microbiome is a key contributor in determining susceptibility [to autism-like disorders], so it suggests that you could target either the maternal microbiome or this inflammatory molecule, IL-17a,” said lead researcher John Lukens, Ph.D., of UVA’s Department of Neuroscience. “You could also use this [IL-17a] as a biomarker for early diagnosis.”
This Isn’t Provocative At All

Super D and RSB open up the hour is a Cannabis Update!
California Bans Hemp-Derived CBD Oil Despite the fact it has received little media attention, a recent decision from Sacramento bureaucrats has potentially far-reaching implications for the cannabis industry — and for patients who have come to rely on CBD to treat a wide range of ailments. On July 6, the California Department of Public Health issued a memo making it clear that CBD oil derived from hemp was banned in the state. The memo asserts that CBD oil derived from hemp is not under the purview of the state’s cannabis regulations. According to the memo, the public health department’s Food and Drug Branch (FDB) “has received numerous inquiries from food processors and retailers who are interested in using industrial hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) oil or CBD products in food since the legalization of medicinal and adult-use marijuana (cannabis) in California.” The memo makes clear that the public health department’s Manufactured Cannabis Safety Branch (MCSB) “regulates medicinal and adult-use manufactured cannabis products,” while “food products derived from industrial hemp are not covered by MCSB regulations. Instead, these products fall under the jurisdiction of CDPH-FDB.”
Attorney general: Oklahoma board went too far with pot rules Oklahoma’s Board of Health overstepped its authority with several of the emergency rules on medical marijuana it adopted last week, Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter wrote Wednesday in a letter to the head of the agency. In the letter to Interim Commissioner of Health Tom Bates, Hunter specifically cites last-minute changes the nine-member board approved last week that prohibit the sale of smokable marijuana and require a pharmacist at every dispensary. Those rules were recommended by groups representing doctors, pharmacists and hospitals, but were fiercely opposed by medical marijuana advocates. The board approved those two rules despite a warning from its own general counsel that members didn’t have the authority to do so. Hunter says several other rules adopted by the board appear to go beyond its statutory authority, including limits on the amount of THC allowed in cannabis products, restrictions on dispensaries, requiring surety bonds for licensing and requiring medical marijuana to be grown in enclosed structures. Hunter said none of those regulations was authorized under State Question 788, the proposal to legalize medical marijuana that Oklahoma residents approved last month with 57 percent of the vote.
