Marijuana as wonder drug

8 03 2007

An article by Lester Grinspoon, emeritus professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, first published in the Boston Globe:

A new study in the journal Neurology is being hailed as unassailable proof that marijuana is a valuable medicine. It is a sad commentary on the state of modern medicine that we still need “proof” of something that medicine has known for 5,000 years.
[. . .]
If marijuana were a new discovery rather than a well-known substance carrying cultural and political baggage, it would be hailed as a wonder drug.
