Where's the Beef ? (or does marijuana have medical use)

I started playing guitar when I was 5 years old. Played in my first band when I was 13. Spent most of my life playing music professionally, and now I'm an old guy that has lost the taste for riding around in a bus that smells like Jack Daniels and dirty socks. Did have my day's though. I use CBD oil for the aches and pains of to much fun in life and find it helps. Do you think it has medicinal value ?

California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada became the latest states to legalize recreational marijuana, bringing to 28 the number of states that have approved the drug for medicinal use, recreational use, or both. Even more states have rules that allow certain kinds of cannabis extracts to be used for medical purposes. At the same time that state legalization is increasing, the Trump administration is signaling that it may ramp up enforcement of federal drug laws, even when they come into conflict with state laws allowing recreational marijuana use. State and local governments may find themselves on uncertain legal ground. Meanwhile, policymakers navigating this new landscape are also working largely without the benefit of a solid foundation of scientific evidence on the drug’s risks and benefits. In fact, a new National Academy of Medicine report describes notable gaps in scientific data on the short- and long-term health effects of marijuana. What do we know about the health impacts of marijuana, and what do we still need to learn? This Forum brought together researchers studying marijuana’s health impacts with policymakers who are working to implement new laws in ways that will benefit and protect public health.
