Now I'll go read the article.
Well that was quick.
Those folks only need to read whats already available and then go from there. They've obviously not done much research on the subject themselves!
Somebody send them the US Gov patent number on CBD use (Patent 6,630,507).
Get them W.B. O'Shaughnessy & Dr Tod Mikurias work!
You had me at people being healthier and it being a threat. This is the true threat, whether the doctors are aware of it or not. Cannabis users (on average), get sick less, see doctors less, use drastically fewer prescriptions, work more, bitch less (than alcohol and many Rx users) lol and generally tolerate life better all around.
This means fewer people in the waiting room, and lower profits every year. Same reason the pharmaceutical companies are running scared as well.
The downside is they kind of have a point, but only when people are using unclean cannabis, or cannabis with severely wrong terpene profiles for their brain chemistry. Recreational cannabis will slowly increase the quality and strains available, through a growing awareness of what cannabis really is.
Remember, these are primarily doctors who have never experienced clean cannabis. Their patients mostly have not either. Of course their opinion is going to be a bit jaded.
