Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Wed, July, 13th 2016 by THCFinder

A couple of researchers from the University of New Mexico wrote a letter in Science magazine, of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), about the ridiculous hurdles medical researchers face when it comes to studying cannabis.

“Our report was just a short (but much overdue) opinion piece designed to inform the general medical and scientific communities as to some major problems with our research system here in the U.S.,” wrote one of the authors, Jacob Miguel Vigil, PhD in an email.
