So I came across this little gem this morning via Reddit. It seems that a group of scientists have found a way to interfere with THC’s interaction with various molecular receptors, meaning that they can now create THC-based pills with effective, long-term pain relief properties that avoid the high associated with marijuana use. My thought: “Pain pills without the high? Wonderful!”
I wonder how many of the “medical” marijuana advocates will agree.
Given that they’re starting trials, it seems like this is something that could actually become viable on the market. If this happens, I think it will make the lines clearer as to who is in this fight for actual pain relief and valid medical applications versus those who are in it for a way to get high legally.
Should be interesting…
