Canadians just won the right to grow medical marijuana
Canadian medical marijuana patients have won the right to grow their own bud in a landmark court ruling released Wednesday.
Federal Judge Michael Phelan has ruled in favor of four British Columbia residents, declaring the country's medical marijuana regime, known as the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR), unconstitutional.
This means that the federal law passed by the former Conservative government of Stephen Harper has no force and effect.

Marijuana for Your Migraine
From chronic anxiety to seizures, there's a laundry list of ailments medical marijuana is suspected to alleviate. You can add migraine headaches to that list. A new study from the University of Colorado found that marijuana had a significant impact in either preventing or getting rid of migraines in 121 migraine patients at two Colorado dispensaries studied over a four-year period.
The patients, who smoked, used vaporizers, or ate marijuana edibles reported that their migraines decreased from 10.4 to 4.6 per month. In all, 103 said they experienced fewer migraines — that is, 85 percent of the participants. Nearly 40 percent said they experienced positive results by preventing migraines altogether or nipping them in the bud when they started. Inhaled forms were most effective in treating acute migraine symptoms, and edibles resulted in the most side effects, including drowsiness, subjects said. People who used edibles also reported that they had trouble controlling the intensity and timing of effects, as edibles kick in more slowly than other forms.
