The idea that it is a medical panacea would be as ridiculous and Wonder's evidence-free beliefs on the subject.

i agree with that. of course, i don't see any real downside to 10,000 people using the herb as long as 1 person gets to use it as medicine when they need it. I just watched "Weed Wars" the other night. It showed a family with a child that has the most severe form of epilepsy. He has had seizures every day since he was a few months old. After his first dose of CBD (the other main psychoactive ingredient besides THC) he went 4 days without an attack. think about that - the first days in 4 years that this family didn't have to quickly deal with a seizure by using rectal injection into their 4 year old son.

nope thats not medicine. Wonder wants to make sure that kid keeps having seizures and daily rectal injections that don't work rather than have his worldview challenged. Personally, i call that violence in the name of your beliefs.
