  1. Though there are currently 18 medical marijuana states, and marijuana possession has been decriminalized in Colorado and Washington, many hurdles still exist when it comes to researching the drug's medicinal benefits. In 1970, under the Nixon administration, Marijuana was classified as a schedule 1 controlled substance, right along with heroine and above cocaine. The schedule 1 label, as determined by the DEA, means that marijuana: (A) has high potential for abuse. (B) The drug or other substance has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States. © There is a lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision. Though the country has moved beyond Nixon, the policies that his administration implemented as part of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 were a continuation of drug prohibition policies in the U.S., which started in 1914 with the prohibition of alcohol. Though Doctors and medical officials continue to call for a reclassification of the drug so they may study its therapeutic benefits, the federal supplier of medical grade cannabis, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) isn't so keen to move its supply in this direction. For more information on the obstacles that Doctors who wish to study marijuana's medicinal benefits face, click the links below. http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2013-04/why-its-so-hard-scientists-study-pot http://www.sacbee.com/2012/07/12/4625608/california-pot-research-backs.html
  2. A new study published in the American Journal of Medicine has shown that marijuana use can lower the risk of diabetes and obesity. The study analyzed data collected from a 2005-2010 survey of over 4600 Americans. Of those surveyed, 2,103 had never ingested or inhaled cannabis, 1,975 had used marijuana in the past, and 579 were current users. The study found that current and prior cannabis users had lower fasting insulin levels as well as smaller waist circumferences. Though marijuana users were found to have greater caloric intake levels than non-users, on average they have lower body mass index (BMI). The study suggests that two of our nation's greatest health risks (diabetes and obesity) could potentially be treated by the use of cannabis. check out this link for an excellent overview of the study http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/health&id=9114798 below is a link to the original article from the American Journal of Medicine http://www.amjmed.com/article/S0002-9343(13)00200-3/abstract
  3. Daniela Drake, a graduate from the prestigious Stanford medical school, shares her experiences as a California "Pot Doctor" and how she was transformed from a skeptic to an avid supporter of medical cannabis. Like many doctor's involved in medical marijuana certifications, she has witnessed first-hand the cruelties and hypocrisy of marijuana prosecution, these experiences have compelled her to speak out. Michigan readers will resonate with her poignant story and will hopefully glean important lessons therein.
