A few weeks before the legalization of cannabis in Canada, experts are concerned about gaps in the scientific knowledge of the substance. Scientists who study the issue believe that legalization will accelerate research in order to elucidate the many mysteries that linger over its effects. For example, the interaction between cannabis and other drugs, alcohol, the brain development of the fetus and more.
What we know about cannabis is very rudimentary. The good news is that we should know its immediate effects fairly quickly. On the other hand, the long-term effects could take several decades. Can cannabis damage health? Does it improve some aspects of health? Is there a risk to mental health? What is the required dose of consumption?
Canada could become pioneers in scientific research on this drug, with growing results on the harms and potential benefits of this substance.
