Ongoing research into the complex compounds found in cannabis are adding to the knowledge base  Dr. Daniele Piomelli offers testimony on Medical Cannabis

Dr. Daniele Piomelli, Editor-in-Chief of Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, provided testimony on the science behind Cannabis research at a Senate Judiciary Committee, and Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, hearing on “Researching the Potential Medical Benefits and Risks of Marijuana.”
