Re: “Advocates regroup after medical marijuana dies again in committee

Wachtel said Israel—which has the highest ratio of university degrees to the population in the world and produces more scientific papers per capita than any other nation—has become a world leader in cannabis research as a result of the U.S.’s continued blockade of cannabis research. He says this is wonderful for Israel, but not for society at large.

“By denying people access to medical cannabis the U.S. has criminalized patients,” he said.

Doctors from all over the world, including the U.S., arrive in Israel to research cannabis’ wide-ranging medical properties. Current studies are looking at cannabis’ use in the treatment of basal-cell carcinoma, post-traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia and Crohn’s disease.

Funding for cannabis research in Israel comes from the Israeli Ministry of Health (MOH) as well as private donors.

Re: “Advocates regroup after medical marijuana dies again in committee

Since Duke University is not doing any research in medical cannabis, perhaps Rep. Jackson would be interested in the research that is being done in Israel: http://nocamels.com/2014/01/how-israel-became-a-medical-marijuana-powerhouse/
