and I can't explain this. I mean, this stuff has been around forever. I'm sure there would be many willing participants for a study.

It's not total BS, and it's not the ultimate cure-all. Just like other drug/medicines, it only works for some things, and often only to help, not cure. Look at opiates, where there is great utility, but also tremendous incentive to use recreationally; in the late 1800's they thought the stuff cured e/t because everybody liked taking it. That 'worked great for a month but then stopped' is often the sign of a placebo response, which is why they do clinical trials, instead of just asking hairdressers. The reactionary and politically motivated forces that kept MJ on schedule 1 have cheated you all out of that medical research up until just recently, and it is still so difficult that little is being done here in the states. I certainly hear many reports of it helping people with PTSD (or more specifically, with certain symptoms of their PTSD), sleep disorders, chronic pain, seizures, MS or neuromuscular disorders, and some GI issues.

There was one of those wacky baccy shops (and still is) just before Gt.Barrington I saw on my bus journey from NYC to visit cousins.

As for MJ......I've personally have never tried it. Any job I've ever held had random drug testing. When I retire, I may try it and find out its the best thing ever and wonder why I missed out for so long.

My wife used it years ago when she went through ovarian cancer. She doesn't use now, but said it was the only thing that relieved the pain.

I'm not against it for people who need it to function. As for recreational use, as long as they aren't hurting me I'm fine there as well although I would like to see more information on how much impairment it may cause someone....especially when operating a motor vehicle.
...a lot less impairment than from having three cocktails and getting behind the wheel.

Just my take--

Its been used medicinally for 5000 plus years. Has a much, much longer anecdotal record than any other drug on the market. People don't die while taking it, or taking too much of it, they don't steal from family to get it, it causes far less accidents than alcohol, it treats a myriad of symptoms, and is widely available to all--its a weed!

STOP taking chemicals that pharma companies make, and then convinces you that you need, but doesn't cure anything-just masks a symptom. Most FDA approved drugs are not 'cures' but maintainance drugs that you must take for the rest of your life...creating a constant cash flow for big pharma. Saw a commercial a while back there's a new drug on the market to help people who....cry spontaneously...
