CMCRWednesday, February 17, 2010

SACRAMENTO – Researchers from the University of California’s Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research (CMCR) today issued a report showing that there is “reasonable evidence that cannabis is a promising treatment” for some specific, pain-related medical conditions.

CMCR’s findings, which were presented today to the California Legislature and public, are included in a report that is available on the CMCR website:

Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) issued the following statement in response to today’s report:

“For too long the full evaluation of the therapeutic value of medical marijuana has been hindered by the lack of high quality scientific studies,” said Senator Leno. “Thanks to the vision and foresight of Senator John Vasconcellos in 1999, the California State Legislature sought to break through those roadblocks to study the potential benefits of medical cannabis. Today we have solid, scientific research that will benefit patients in California and across the globe.”
