If your strategy to legalize the use of plant cannabis by all people for any reason is to preach “All use is medical/wellness”, cannabinoid pharmaceuticals is where you’ll end up. There exists a paradigm for the medical / wellness use of substances, and it lies in the realm of doctors and pharmacists and prescriptions and manufactured drugs.

We observed that plant-derived cannabinoids inhibit the proliferation of human glioblastoma cell lines. Compared with Δ9-THC, cannabidiol was significantly more potent at inhibiting cancer cell growth. This finding is in agreement with studies using models of aggressive breast cancers. This is incredible news that may lead to further breakthroughs in cancer research. However, as exciting as this is, we’d be remiss in not mentioning that the government had conducted trials at the University of Virginia, funded by grants from the National Institute of Health, back in 1974 showing that cannabis had promise as an anti-cancer therapy.
