Phone: 800-6-STATIONS, website NO LONGER RECOMMENDED: Binion’s Horseshoe (Downtown Las Vegas) We’re sad to have had to remove Binion’s Horshoe from our Recommended list. Overthe past couple of years they have reduced their table odds from 100X to 20X, againdown to 10X, and in recent years they’ve dropped the number of of craps tables from12 to 6. In addition at one time they were in heavy litigation for not paying theirfees for their participation in The Fremont Experience promotion, and many dealersthere were upset with the way that tokes were being handled during The World Seriesof Poker promotion. All we can say is that “The Shoe” has been going downhill fastthough attempts for upgrades are now being made in 2008 by the new Four Queens history buffs, you might want to take a walk through if you are downtown andjust try to picture what was once a craps shooters paradise.

2/15/2010 - An excellent review of clinical studies on the medical use of cannabis and cannabinoids has been published by Arno Hazekamp and Franjo Grotenhermen. The authors summarize 37 different controlled studies in the period July 1, 2005 - August 1, 2009. Eight specifically involved smoked marijuana, all of which indicated medical efficacy. Conditions treated included chronic pain, HIV neuropathy, spinal cord injury, and Hep C. The authors add that at least 110 studies on medical cannabis have been published since 1975. So much for the notion that our drug bureaucrats need more studies on medical marijuana. Read the study.
