FDA Intends to Look into Medical Marijuana Claims

Category: News | Posted on Sun, October, 8th 2017 by THCFinder

Good news, if it’s true. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Scott Gottlieb might start looking into medical marijuana’s many claims.

“I see people who are developing products who are making claims that marijuana has antitumor effects in the setting of cancer,” said Gottlieb at a hearing before Congress this week. “It’s a much broader question about where our responsibility is to step into this.”

California’s illegally grown marijuana, once largely produced in national forests and other outdoor locations, is increasingly found indoors, federal statistics show.

In 2016, authorities seized 313,000 plants from indoor operations in California, which made up 75 percent of all indoor plants taken nationwide, according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

While the total accounts for only 8 percent of all seizures in California, that is the highest total in at least eight years.
