Time Magazine posted an article late last summer in which it explains that despite marijuana being classified as a Schedule 1 drug by our federal government, it is now easier for researchers to grow the plant.
It discusses how scientists on both sides of the marijuana argument agree that studying it is safe and researching its benefits and side effects should be less difficult than it has been.

- Marijuana as cancer therapy
- Marijuana’s effect on the brain
- Strains and dosages
- Marijuana and the brain
- Marijuana and anxiety
- Long term usage consequences
- Marijuana and opioids
