Well written. Was interestied in learning the historical uses and surprised that it was only outlawed in the 70’s. Was most interested in the long term effects on the brain such as Parkinson’s . Useful article.

Interesting article. If the government was able to control this drug by limiting and checking individuals when buying over the counter de-congestants, why can't they control the THC problem?

The bridge between acute hospitalization (or even ED visit) and remaining drug free is a battle with more patients than beds or services at rehabilitation or even day programs (I am in the Northeast and this is an issue we face often).
