Yes Virigina, marijuana really is a medicine...

Wasn't I just complaining the curative effects of cannabis use haven't been given enough attention? Once again, I'm behind the curve. NORML announces nearly 700 articles on the theraperutic uses of the plant have been published during the first half of 2006 alone and they've just released the results of a new study themselves.
The NORML Foundation report summarizes over 120 recently published trials assessing the therapeutic utility of cannabinoids for the treatment of fifteen specific disease indications: Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, diabetes mellitus, dystonia, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, gliomas, hepatitis C, hypertension, incontinence, osteoporosis, pruritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sleep apnea, and Tourette's syndrome.
More information and pdfs of the reports are available here.
