Daily medical marijuana and recreational cannabis news covering culture, activism, law, growing, products, history, business and event coverage. With over ten years of experience in the healthcare field, the growing number of patients seeking my advice on marijuana has increased dramatically. When the drug wasnt much of a social issue, a nervous patient might inquire about its effects or a worried mother may ask if her son was frying his brain. Soon, when a few states legalized cannabis for medicinal use, more patients began openly discussing it. It amazed me at first, but I had to know what all the fuss was about so I started my own research into the drug. What I found during my investigation was disturbing.
