However, a shrinking, but vocal, group of people who oppose medical cannabis exists. Undeterred by looking foolish, they unabashedly parrot lies fabricated over 50 years ago.

The Human Endocannabinoid System Our bodies have an endogenous series of receptors designed to synthesize and utilize cannabinoids called the human endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS, not discovered until the 1990’s, is an exciting scientific and medical discovery.
