By pure accident I ran across this quote somewhere else .
Quote:
I should note that the Tashkin studies had a sample size too small to show statistical significance.
No larger study has ever been done to confirm or deny the results Tashkin got.
The studies are now over 10 years old.

I still have not read the original article in full , so do not know if the
above point was covered.

A double blind clinical study large enough to be acceptable by FDA costs about $100 million dollars. The only funding sources with that kind of money is for-profit pharmaceutical companies, and they will spend that kind of money only if they can get a patent on the substance tested. Natural substances cannot be patented, so no natural substance can ever get FDA approval.

Marijuana is a natural substance, so of course every test is dismissed as "not statistically valid" since only small tests can get funding. The system is designed to screen out of medicine any effective natural substances.

I missed this thread (or possibly avoided it) the first time around, but I can't help but wonder if that is what turned by situation around?
