I don't know what others think, but I think cannabis should be prescribed when indicated, and thus available.
My gosh, look at the power of what is often prescribed, like opiods.
This is far more addictive than cannabis and also potentially more lethal. We don't seem to have a problem with drs. prescribing it and in fact probably most of us have received great benefit from using it at some time in our lives.
If you have cancer and are wasting away, or have great nausea because of treatment, or if you have one of the fairly rare diseases that involve extreme loss of balance -- these are just a few that cannabis can help.

I think it is insane to try to prevent medical use of cannabis. So, in my mind this is a socially responsible company, or potentially it is, if they pass other screens.
