Some people (especially underinformed politicians) are still parroting the old line that "there hasn't been any research done on cannabis" - that's not true! Since 1996 the published peer-reviewed biomedical literature (as listed in the US National Library of Medicine’s Pubmed indexing service) has seen 10,300+ papers published mentioning cannabis, 16,700+ papers on cannabinoids, and 7,500+ papers on the human endocannabinoid system. While it’s possible some of these might be overlaps, even if you count just the “cannabis” papers, that’s at least one paper published each day for the past 20+ years. There’s already been a llllot of research on cannabis!
