A new Canadian study could have ramifications for the entire marijuana industry.
Despite the growing popularity of cannabis, there's limited information about what the substance can and cannot do. And with marijuana classified as a Schedule 1 substance in the U.S., it's nearly impossible for researchers to conduct studies on it. In Canada, however, pot's legal for both medical and recreational use. Researchers there are hopeful that a new study could help answer some of the uncertainties surrounding cannabis and its effectiveness in treating various ailments.
