While cautioning against self-medicating with marijuana, Dr. Mark Ware, an associate professor in family medicine and anesthesia at McGill’s Faculty of Medicine believes that more research is needed into the possible use of cannabis for medicinal purposes.
Dr. Ware made the comments in an article appearing in the National Pain Report, in response to a survey of over 1,300 fibromyalgia patients that was conducted by the National Pain Foundation and National Pain Report. Many patients believe medical marijuana to be more effective in treating their symptoms than the medication currently available and approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to treat the disorder, the survey found.
