The federal government has approved medical trials for the use of marijuana in treating Multiple Sclerosis and HIV-related pain, reports Paul Armentano of UPI. The approval reverses nearly two decades of prohibition on state-based medicinal marijuana research, but Armentano says the question remains whether government officials will accept the results of the study. Meanwhile, an England-based pharmaceutical company has been granted permission to move into clinical trials for its non-smoked, cannabis-based medicines used to treat cancer pain.
