"In the U.S. we demand the highest standards to prove the medicines our doctors prescribe are safe and reasonable effective." ("Letter: Trib editorial misleading; marijuana isn't medicine," Forum, Nov. 15) Has letter-writer Chris Stock never known of a medication approved by the FDA then pulled due to unsafe side effects?
I wonder if he would feel comfortable with his child taking a medication with these side effects: drooling, nausea, difficulty swallowing, tremor, Tardive dyskinesia, fainting, agitation, tachycardia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, depression and mood swings?
Imagine your child taking four or more of these medications daily, each with its own list of side effects. The side effects related to CBD are minimal when compared to these "medicines."
