Not All Medical Marijuana

It's weird that people would just say that marijuana is good for some ailments without any data to back that up at all, huh:

The dearth of data has not prevented legislators and voters across the nation from endorsing marijuana for more than 40 conditions. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis, for instance, qualify for marijuana treatment in at least three states.

Yet there are no published trials of smoked marijuana in rheumatoid arthritis patients, said Dr. Mary-Ann Fitzcharles, a rheumatologist at McGill University who reviewed the evidence of the drug’s efficacy in treating rheumatic diseases. “When we look at herbal cannabis, we have zero evidence for efficacy,” she said. “Unfortunately this is being driven by regulatory authorities, not by sound clinical judgment.”

Dr Fitzpatrick represents one of the biggest obstacles to patient's health. She complains about lack of research, all the while supporting a system which keeps such research illegal. Raw herbs don't qualify for FDA trials, so the DEA and NIDA would never sign off on such studies. The good doctor would much rather pander to the pharmacuetical industry whose poisons are known to cause harm. Meanwhile, most intellectuals know that cannabis is well known to be largely harmless as established by the DEA's judge Francis Young.

just a shout testimony about my past and recent result, I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing my husband to another lady, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly. I found consultant.Dr Ekaka spells and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Several days later, my phone rang. and it was my husband was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to know how much we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be you can contact the spell caster on ekakaspelltemple@yahoo.com he's very nice and great.
