U.S. health officials say a closely watched medicine made from the marijuana plant significantly reduces seizures in children with severe forms of epilepsy and warrants approval in the U.S. The Food and Drug Administration posted its review Tuesday, April 17, of the experimental medication ahead of a public meeting later this week.

Finally. Thank you for the comprehensive article. And hats off to you for finally not referring to this important medicine as "weed" or "pot." As a patient who's fine local doctor has been wanting to prescribe it for me for the past 600 days or so, I appreciate that.

Griffen needs to be removed from the bench for gross incompetency.

If you meet the criteria you should have the same chance as everybody else. Take the human element out of the equation and institute a lottery for picking applicants. Griffen needs a psych evaluation.
