4 Ways to Get Facts About Marijuana

The best way to find out the latest news about medical marijuana is, of course, to regularly read MJWellness. But what are some other options?

Browse Government Data

Despite being illegal on the federal level, government websites contain a surprising amount of information on medical marijuana. Some of this information can be slightly outdated, but is it generally quite accurate and reliable.

You can look for cannabis information on the official state or provinces websites. For more in-depth analysis look up the websites of the Food and Drug Administration, National Institute on Drug Abuse, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other federal and local agencies.

Read Scientific Journals

If you want to know all the raw facts, you can always catch up on medical marijuana research by reading the research papers themselves. It can be a quite challenging task, though, especially if you do not have a background in science.

The is even one scientific journal that writes exclusively about cannabis research.
