We need more research - The last cannabis excuse exposed

The idea that we “need more research” when it comes to cannabis simply isn’t accurate. We have plenty of research on this plant, especially since we’ve been studying it for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Of course, modern medicine requires certain standards when it comes to research, however, even by modern standards we have enough research available to conclude on the safety of cannabis.

The “More Research” fallacy is nothing more than a stall tactic. For thousands of years, humans have been using cannabis for medical, spiritual, and recreational purposes. Throughout all this time, the general consensus is that cannabis is relatively benign and actually very beneficial for humans to consume.
