I think it was about 15-20 years ago, I saw a guy get interviewed on TV who was prescribed cannabis to treat his glaucoma...It seems that the cannabis
would enlarge the blood vessles in his eyes, thereby relieving the blood pressure that glaucoma caused.
Two specific points I distinctly remember (even from that long ago):
1: Since it was legally prescribed & provided for him, he never had to take the chance of a stree-dealer cutting it with junk, poison or stronger (&
more addictive) drugs...In short, the *quality* of his "stash" was assured.
2: It was even legal for him to eat dinner at a restaraunt, then light one up, even in public...At the very worst, all they could do was tell him to
leave but they couldn't get him arrested.
