Maria Zakharova, the ministry's spokeswoman, described the reports as "yet another" false story while attacking the USA media. It's simple: Individuals who are "extremely careless" w/ classified info should be denied further access to it.
Asked to rate the benefits of medical cannabis in their treatment on a scale of 1 (no benefit) to 7 (great deal of benefit), 64 percent of patients gave the therapy a 6 or 7. Nine percent indicated little or no benefit. Most patients also reported clinically meaningful reductions in symptoms for conditions including seizures, Tourette syndrome, Crohn's disease and muscle spasms.
Minnesota has among the strictest programs of almost 30 states with medical marijuana laws. The state bans the plant form and restricts marijuana pills and oils to patients with a handful of severe conditions. Due to high costs and an aggressive rollout schedule, the state's two licensed manufacturers lost a combined $11 million in just two years of sales, according to financial documents obtained by The Associated Press.
