As difficult as cannabis research can be, there have been hundreds of studies published. Find out what a major recent review found in my last video, The Institute of Medicine Report on the Health Effects of Marijuana (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/The-Institute-of-Medicine-Report-on-the-Health-Effects-of-Marijuana). And if you want to learn more, I made a whole DVD download of cannabis research for those interested in a deep dive: https://drgreger.org/collections/downloads/products/cannabis-what-does-the-science-say-digital
The cannabis issue reminds me of a similar clash of politics and commercial interests in the cell phone debate. If you’re interested, check out my videos Does Cell Phone Radiation Cause Cancer?
(http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Does-Cell-Phone-Radiation-Cause-Cancer) and Cell Phone Brain Tumor Risk? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/Cell-Phone-Brain-Tumor-Risk).
