CBC News reported that Health Canada has released an expanded medical marijuana manual for health care professionals. The new manual includes a section on adverse effects of the drug that is nearly 50 percent longer than the original version.
As quoted in the publication:
The document is much larger than the previous 2013 edition, and responds to doctors’ complaints about having too little information on the medical science even as they’re being asked to authorize marijuana for a growing number of patients.
The heavily revised manual arrives as the Liberals sort out how to legalize recreational marijuana as promised in the federal election – and the document’s fresh litany of cautions may provide ammunition to opponents.
