white widow feminized

For more than 3,500 years, cannabis/hemp/marijuana has been, depending on the culture or nation, either the most used or one of the most widely used plants for medicines. This includes: China, India, the Middle and Near East, Africa, and pre-Roman Catholic Europe (prior to 476 A.D.). Dr. Raphael Mechoulam, NORML, High Times and Omni Magazine (September 1982) all indicate that white widow feminized, if marijuana were legal it would immediately replace 10-20% of all pharmaceutical prescription medicines (based on research through 1976). And probably, Mechoulam estimates, 40-50% of all medicines, including patent medicines, could contain some extract from the cannabis plant when fully researched.

Hello. My name is Edgar and I'm an editor at OpposingViews.com, the debate website. Since we both cover medical marijuana, I thought I'd drop you a note. I would've e-mailed you but I couldn't find an address.
See, we're currently having a discussion about whether Michigan should allow medical marijuana. Proposal 1 would do just that. The discussion includes The Michigan Coalition for Compassionate Care and State Sen. Tom George. See it here:

Although vetted experts are the ones doing the debating, anyone can contribute by choosing a side and posting comments about the experts' arguments.
Check it out and, if you have the time, let me know what you think at edgar@opposingviews.com
Thanks!
