Sad but True: Marijuana Is Not a “Clinical Medicine,” and It Might Never Be

It’s pretty much common consensus these days that marijuana works excellently well as a medicine. People commonly use it to treat chronic pain, sleep disorders, muscle spasms, and epilepsy – some people even claim to have been cured of cancer by the powerful healing effects of cannabis.


Talk to your doctor, though, and you’ll more than likely get a less-than-giddy response regarding the therapeutic action of marijuana and its ability to help people treat medical conditions. Why? Because doctors and other medical professionals are (rightfully) bound by strict training and a very rigid checklist in terms of what does – and doesn’t – clinically qualify as a medicine.
