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?
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 Some of this information can be slightly outdated, but is it generally quite accurate and reliable.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.
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.
Or you can read our summary of the recently published WHO report encompassing 20 years of cannabis research in one article.
If you are more of a people person and tend to find all these research papers boring, you can get the information you need first-hand by talking to cannabis patients, activists and other people involved with medical marijuana. The best way to do this would be to attend one of the upcoming events.
This is probably the best and the most responsible way to get all the information you need from a source you can really trust. The added benefit of this approach is that your doctor can prescribe you medical cannabis if you need it.
