Many Canadians use medical marijuana products, but not all of those products been studied for their safety and efficacy. We talk to Aly Benson and Rebecca Zak, who have had varying degrees of success with using medical cannabis; and James MacKillop, director at the Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research at McMaster University. He's one of some 200 scientists and clinicians who have signed a letter to Health Canada urging the government to make research into medical cannabis more feasible.
