Marijuana. This week medical marijuana is making the news.

Maybe because of the June 28 Senate vote. It was defeated, but the general population seems to want it passed and Senate support is now stronger than ever.

Maybe because of the June 26 launch of C-Ice in the UK. C-Ice is a drink with hemp-blossom syrup or sweet cannabis tea. C-Ice is now in 25 European countries and is being tested specifically for MS leg pain and spasms.

Maybe because of the June 23 announcement that the National MS Society is funding an ongoing study of the effects of marijuana on spasticity in MS. The University of California Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research lost funding before the study was completed and NMSS filled the need.

Marijuana. It just won't go away. Maybe there's a good reason.
