  1. I’ve been wondering about all the benefits of cannabis, and I’ve read some good articles about it, but none that have discussed the positives as thoroughly as this article does. My husband has so many serious health issues and I just really wish he could take cannabis, but we live in Nebraska and am afraid to break the law, guess maybe l need to join the group that is pushing to get cannabis oil legalized here.
    Thank you an excellent article Dr. Bramhall!


  2. We’re about to have medical marijuana approved her in New Zealand but only for terminal cancer and it’s still terribly expensive because we have to import it. At least passage of the law will stimulate a local industry so we can bring the cost down.
