Could Cannabis Help Prevent Alzheimer's? Unless Lawmakers Adapt To Allow Its Study, We May Never Know

Medical cannabis is becoming more and more common around the US, with over 60% of states having some form of medical marijuana law in effect. In addition, 8 states have legalized marijuana for recreational use.

Yet, many scientists are still being blocked at a federal level from conducting wide-scale studies on the effects of medical cannabis on conditions like cancer, chronic pain, and even Alzheimer's and dementia.

Researchers at the Salk Institute in California – where medical and recreational marijuana are legal – were blocked by the DEA from obtaining clearance to test a marijuana extract on mice, in an effort to study the effects of the drug on amyloid deposits.
