There are studies that suggest medical marijuana can reduce pain and even prevent suicide.
So if doctors in California can recommend it for adults, shouldn’t they be able to encourage it for teens? Researchers at the Mayo Clinic just say no in an opinion published this week: The clinic says cannabis is an “increasingly available option” for teenagers with chronic pain that doctors and parents should “avoid.” Of course, the study also claims pot causes pain. So you might want to take the results with a grain of THC. L.A. Weekly has the rest.
