    Marijuana: The Latest Scientific Findings and Legalization


    "Published on Apr 4, 2017 by Harvard University

    California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada became the latest states to legalize recreational marijuana, bringing to 28 the number of states that have okayed the drug for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. Even more states have rules that allow certain kinds of cannabis extracts to be used for medical purposes. At the same time that state legalization is increasing, the Trump administration is signaling that it may ramp up enforcement of federal drug laws, even when they come into conflict with state laws allowing recreational marijuana use. State and local governments may find themselves on uncertain legal ground.

    Meanwhile, policymakers navigating this new landscape are also working largely without the benefit of a solid foundation of scientific evidence on the drug’s risks and benefits. In fact, a new National Academy of Medicine report describes notable gaps in scientific data on the short- and long-term health effects of marijuana.

    What do we know about the health impacts of marijuana, and what do we still need to learn?

    This Forum brought together researchers studying marijuana’s health impacts with policymakers who are working to implement new laws in ways that will benefit and protect public health.

    Part of The Dr. Lawrence H. and Roberta Cohn Forums, this event was presented jointly with The Huffington Post on Friday, March 24, 2017."

    They are going to organise a way to get information about the users. Didn't come across that there's a choice.

    This is only one thing. There are other things said that raised concern in me. When I continue to watch, I'll see what else I can state here.

    Basically what I gleaned from the debate was that there isn't any study on it. It cannot in reality be patented because it's a natural product. The big pharma companies will not let this slip by their fingers without a fight...if it's legalized then be sure of this...IT HAS BEEN MODIFIED so they can patent it.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things.
