Crucially, the researchers concluded there is not enough research to say whether marijuana effectively treats epilepsy - one of the most widely-recognized reasons for cannabis prescriptions.
Of course nothing definitive can be said about cannabis. Except in Israel and Spain human trials are impermissible.
Despite that there is considerable anecdotal evidence.
There is a system in the body that regulates almost everything in the body and is part of the body's natural defense against cancer. The endocannabinoid system. And yet medicines for this system are almost non-existent due to cannabis prohibition.
It is a crime against humanity - being rectified in the US by the various States ( 30 of them are medical cannabis states IIRC - and if you add in CBD oil for epilepsy it is something like 44 or 46 States ).
We know that Prohibition is a price support system for criminals. We learned that from Alcohol Prohibition. Well just about everyone learned it - except "conservatives".
