Quotable

Paul Armentano in Medicine Hasn’t Found Anything Wrong With Pot by Larry Gabriel who notes that “one of the biggest arguments anti-marijuana warriors use is the ‘we don’t know enough about this stuff’ ploy.”

“To date, there are over 20,000 published studies or reviews in the scientific literature referencing the cannabis plant and its cannabinoids, nearly half of which were published within the last five years according to a keyword search on PubMed Central, the U.S. government repository for peer-reviewed scientific research. Over 1,450 peer-reviewed papers were published in 2013 alone,” wrote Armentano. [...]

“The answers are in the scientific literature if anybody would read it,” Armentano says. “What prohibitionists are really saying is, ‘We’ve done research on marijuana and we need more research because we’re still searching for the problem.’”
