    U.S. approves first prescription drug made from marijuana - The Cannabist
    WASHINGTON — U.S. health regulators on Monday approved the first prescription drug made from marijuana, a milestone that could spur more research into a drug that remains illegal under federal law, despite growing legalization for recreational and medical use.




    Pot has always had medical benifits using it. The Gov. had to keep the public dumbed down about it because there was to much money to be made within the system from local levels to federal and all the war on drugs did was create a money generators for politicians who used " SAVE THE CHILDREN". war on drugs scam to guilt trip sheep into falling for it all.

    Just like they use the " save the children" line for anything else they want passed as the clueless public doesn't realize how any laws passed spills over into everybody's life of so called FREEDOM.

    I've heard the prescription drug made from pot is less effective than CBD oil. I hope that's wrong.

    Pot like many things has its good and bad sides. Glad to hear the news about the prescription drug being improved. Know users who swear by CBD oil. Hopefully as marijuana is used more for its good medical traits we'll have capitalism take its natural course. For sake of profitability commercial growers will produce yields that emphasis the good and eliminate the bad.

    Why do you want the prescription drug to be the better option?

    I suspect doctors will be more likely to prescribe the prescription drug than CBD oil because of more regulated and precise manufacturing controls as well as the large amount of documentation that was needed for approval. Prescribing a less effective option would be a shame for the people who need it for a normal life.

    I'm more concerned about big pharma wrapping their dirty little paws around any possible future federal legislation in this area........ Can't have big pharma not making billions off of it at the expense of everyone else now can we..... :eusa_whistle:

    Big pharma will always get lots more than their share, and that sucks, I guess I'm concentrating on getting needed medicine to people who need it now in the quickest and most effective way. All the other considerations are important too, but don't matter if a kid who needs the medicine can't get it.
