How has cannabis industry led to revival of 'snake oil salesmen' or lay/medical entrepreneurs catering pseudoscience to unsuspecting and sometimes desperate patrons? Dr. Michelle Sexton, ND of the UC San Diego Centers for Integrative Health discusses the functions of restrictive laws, stigma, and hesitance of doctors/researchers, combined with patients' needs for palliative care that have laid the foundation for exploitation of valuable botanical medicine and the people who are desperate to try it. Where do we go from here to continue to move cannabis to a position of legitimate medicine, avoid conflicts of interest and fraud?
