Dear ISMOKE Readers,

Here in the UK we are told by our government that the cannabis plant has no medicinal value. Please could you take a moment to review some of the information listed below and let me know whether you think the government itself has authority or any real value, when it comes to being experts on medicine? Thank you for your time.
