It's insane that the states have been allowed to let it go this far with no Federal scrutiny. There is no other drug I can think of that has been given this kind of leeway. There are no studies to support the benefits of what's being sold and no studies on the risks and side effects. It's complete lawlessness and we all know the majority is for recreational purposes.
This might be the first chip at the stone but once Pharma has drugs to protect, there's going to be a war. If the drugs are effective, I dont see how medical marijuana survives. Pharma will be much cheaper, safer and doctors will only prescribe approved drugs. It will be a tough fight becasue so much money and infrastructure has been poured into mm but they won't have a leg to stand on if there are effective FDA approved drugs.
