Medical marijuana is in a constant state of flux; the laws are always changing and the data often seems contradictory. So we wanted to make our visitors a resource where they could find the latest information structured in an easy-to-read manner.
This page isn’t for marijuana news in general; here are news articles that only relate to marijuana as it applies to your health. Whether it’s new studies on beneficial effects or research on harmful byproducts, we want you to stay updated and informed. Don’t miss out on anything.
Deciding to get a medical marijuana card is a big step, and the last thing you need is to be inundated with a myriad of stories that may have nothing to do with what you’re looking for. We care about your health and we hope you find this page helpful. If not, please contact us and we’ll take your feedback and try to improve things.
We also suggest you check out our Medical Marijuana Resources page. There’s a lot of helpful information and some detailed guides there to simply the application process, and we do try to list the latest medical facts about marijuana.
