The White House and federal legislators still pretend to ignore any research study in reference to marijuana.
In 2011 Obama administration declined an administrative petition to reclassify cannabis safety and useful effect under federal law saying that “Marijuana does not have a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States or a currently accepted medical use with severe restrictions. At this time, the known risks of marijuana use have not been shown to be outweighed by specific benefits in well-controlled clinical trials that scientifically evaluate safety and efficacy.”
Despite federal lawmakers` statements that marijuana is a dangerous substance and has no curative benefits, the number of scientific research proving marijuana is useful in some serious medical conditions is increasing. However, these studies are ignored by lawmakers.
