Mixed outcome for cannabis tests on muscular sclerosis
Thu Nov 6, 8:03 PM ET
PARIS (AFP) - The first major trial to see whether cannabis could help sufferers of muscular sclerosis (MS) has yielded mixed results, doctors report in Saturday's issue of the British medical weekly The Lancet.
The test sought to probe anecdotal evidence that cannabis could help ease muscular spasms, stiffness and pains amongst people with this crippling motor-neuron disease.
But the much-awaited outcome of the trial gives a mixed picture, suggesting that cannabis has no effect on spasticity although it may help mobility and pain control.

All of this nonsense because they can't tax it.

Most of the cutting of cannabis isn't with other drugs...It's done with things like oregeno or other herbs, perhaps even small twigs & other crushed leaves...Sometimes even with ragweed, which has a very similar smell when burned.
If legalized, then the quality could be regulated & monitored, so as to avoid cutting such as that.
