letter to the editor:

Could marijuana be in tablet form?

For those of us who need pain relief, “weed” and “grass” is not the answer.

Marijuana/cannabis has two main components, THC and cannabidiol. THC is the psychoactive component. The cannabidiol component is the true medical marijuana.

If we could educate people about this fact and lead our government to approve it, medicine could create this cannabidiol into a tablet that could be ingested as we do aspirin and we could diminish the hype and resistance that goes along with legalization.
